TO PETER

Time flies, memories hide
Deep inside us, fester and boil
Tormenting our thoughts
Controlling our lives

We think they are hidden
Surprises us to find
You see them there lurking
May understand in time

I can’t take from in me
The truth of my life
If I think of it right now
Brings tears to my eyes

My being is so complex
I stand here alone
There is no one to understand
This world of my pain

Don’t ask me to explain 
I don’t have the words
The feelings are twisted
The emotions all churned

Hold still now and listen
You will hear from within
The emotions take hold there
My heart rips at seams

The past is so far gone
We can’t live by its rules
The future’s not yet here
Don’t live there too soon

Today is the only day
Here with us now
Should be just this one
That resonates somehow

 I still feel that big hole
Of past that has been
Memories still haunt me
And keep me in chains

Can’t change where I have been
It makes who I am
I need to learn understand
That there is a plan

The advice that is given
Is so good for me
Its comes with a great love
From friends that I need

Why is it that I find
My ears they do hear
But my being does not like
The words they hold dear

If I could just sit now
And ponder my life
Makes changes for pleasure
I wouldn’t think twice

It would be one of laughter
Of fun and good times
Of happiness and stories
To spread on the grape vine

There would be no more tears
No more hurts from within
No room for more sorrow
No thoughts that are dim

And when I hold this world
In the palm of my hands
I will blow gentle breath
And let all be so calm

No more fights on our planet
No more hurting or sins
No more anger or violence
Just some peace in this din

As this friend to that friend
I’ll say this to you
If ever you need me
I’m here, 
I am true.
