Lost My Song

When in this life I felt down
You were the one that was around

Maybe it was the way you held my hand
I knew in my heart you would understand

I miss the way we used to sit and talk
The times we didn't look at the clock

The way you walked in those tight jeans
Made me want to pull my skin and scream

I remember trembling at your touch
I love and loved you so very much

I am lost inside now you're gone
Baby you are still my life's song

When I look to the night sky I tear
I miss you and wish you were here

Fighting Depression
We’ll defeat this enemy
We’ll soar like eagles

Maybe The Last Letter

This may be the last letter I write to you; I am so very tired inside, I lay in bed I’m pondering things. When you feel like you're at death’s door, it’s not the things you've done well that matter, it’s the mistakes in life you ponder. To be honest though, if there was only one thing I did right, it was the day I met you. When love finds you, you want to keep it close forever and ever and ever and never let it go. I’m afraid to go to sleep because of the uncertainty of tomorrow, but I need to set my fears aside…so I am writing. I should not be afraid because you are already there, where ever there is, but I do remember trembling at your touch and the sound of your voice; I'm still in love with you and I miss you so very much. My prayer is before I close my eyes that I did not forget something—I know that is silly. I did make the house payment, the dishes are washed, the laundry is done, and yes I took out the trash. I let the girls out to go potty, and made sure they will be taken care of if I don't wake up.  They're sleeping on the floor by my side, they have been staying close to me tonight. So I guess I’ll put down my pen and take my chance at sleep, but if I could have just one wish, I wish I could see your face once again with those beautiful deep blue eyes I used to get lost in. Goodnight my love, maybe we can meet some where tonight, I love you.

A Key For My Heart

You have the key that opens my heart,
It was locked deep within not to depart.

I gave this key for you to look and see;
Your choice was to open it and set me free.

With this key you will be able see,
We have a special place you and me.

Your heart and my heart in our nest,
Makes what we have the very best.

Wherever I go you are always with me,
From nightly dreams to the mighty sea.

Every morning when I awake,
I look to your eyes for a keepsake.

My love for you is forever true,
I just want to say "I Love You"

Two Lovers

Eyes like a clear lake,
reflections of a dreamland,
skylights for two hearts.
Walking amidst the cloud tops,
the light brightens up their day.

Life Waters

Reflections of life gently flows
Time removes rough edges
A sigh;
There is continuance from throes
Water goes from ledges
To fly.

Where You Are

I wish upon a star tonight to be where you are.
When you passed from this life you left a scar.

I remember kneeling by your bed each night as you slept.
You were sleeping like an angel but did not wake so I wept.

I would love to be where you are even if it would be for just a while.
There is an ache in my heart to see your blue eyes with your smile.

My love and devotion to you has always been forever strong.
I am still here stuck in this life, but I hope it will not be long.

I love you with all my heart and you were my life’s song.
I have missed you so much baby since you have been gone.

I look up to the sky tonight knowing you are far.
I am singing you an old love song with your guitar.

There are tears in my voice crackling as I sing your song.
I love you more, and I hope it's not going to be too long.

Neapolitan Ice Cream

One people we are
matters not Red White or Brown
we are all the same

Beers and Tears

Men measure life by the number of beers
Women measure life by the flow of tears
It is when the dad farts
His wife moans in her heart
Because her own children laugh and cheer

Angels Watching

Hush little baby it's time to sleep
Angels watching over you so don't you peep

Listen little dreamer hear this song
Angels watching over you so nothing's wrong

Sleep little baby you had your play
Angels watching over you it's time to pray

Now it's time to sleep it's all right
Angels watching over you to keep you tight

Soft is your bed now rest your head
Angels watching over you are by your bed

Now close your eyes and go to sleep
Angels watching over you your soul to keep

Sleep little baby you're about to gleam
Angels watching over you to safely dream

Sonnet (little song - 14 lines)
Meant to be sung as a Lullaby to a child...
