Contagious Singing

Singing songs that fill the air.
Contagious is the song they sing.
The canaries are joyful, without a care.

Their melodies are beyond compare.
They make a weary heart take wing,
singing songs that fill the air.

Happy they, no burden to bare,
when their rich songs they shall sing.
The canaries are joyful, without a care.

Sad thoughts you cannot share
when listening to the song they bring,
singing songs that fill the air.

Their lilting voices in the air
are welcoming the coming Spring.
The canaries are joyful, without a care.

I shall hum while they sing with flair
and all around us music will ring.
Singing songs that fill the air,
the canaries are joyful, without a care.

A Place Of Goodbyes

A place of goodbyes is the earth
Each generation we let go
Heaven_ place of hellos and mirth

Whitey went_ will there be rebirth
Or with animals only end though
A place of goodbyes is the earth

Sadness overwhelmed_she had worth
Was good ratter now receives gateau
Heaven_ place of hellos and mirth

While here on this earth, let me unearth
And expand on my good traits let grow
A place of goodbyes is the earth

I'll leave_ take spiritual rebirth
Put on my countenance's warm glow
Heaven_ place of hellos and mirth

All will leave in flight that is dearth
Now new body on me bestow
A place of goodbyes is the earth
Heaven_place of hellos and mirth

The Danger of Sam

Beads of blood define my plight
No scars to see just yet
How much more do I need to fight?

I wish I could show you this sight
The fine lines of red that have just begun to set
Beads of blood define my plight

All I wish is that he might 
Stop soon, but my wishing is only a threat
How much more do I need to fight?

I scream and I kick as he shows me his bite
Trying to make sure I’ll never forget
The beads of blood that define my plight

How is he to know which is wrong and which is right?
Will he ever feel regret?
How much more do I need to fight?

Poor little raccoon, with your collar so tight
Why do I have you as a pet?
Beads of blood define my plight
How much more do I need to fight?
