Listen With Your Heart

Listen with your heart to the music that I play It belongs to ethereal voices of the wind and of the rain. It belongs to mendearing rivers that lead you far away Let my song be your dream giver as oars rhythms gently sway. Take my hand.Let me take you places that you do not know about I will shower you with magic and treasures yet unfound. I will not promise you butterflies on the next early dawn but we'll walk through paths, where you feel solaced by one look into these eyes with an unfading glow. I will not promise you sunsets reflecting on my face but you'd feel last crimson-embers within my warm embrace. Take my hand.Let me take you places where life is young and free All dark forests, I will paint with colours, in a world for you and me Listen with your heart to the music that I play It belongs to ethereal voices of the wind and of the rain. It belongs to mendearing rivers that will lead you far away Let my song be your dream giver as oars rhythyms gently sway.

Sun And Moon

. I am the moon hanging solitary in the sky watching sails fluttering by breathlessly against the wind. I'm just a rock ,dark,unknown without a light that is my own. Yet He ,He sees hues I cannot see and the true colours in me. He, He is familiar to my face This face that shines less brightly without his full embrace. He is the sun, He is the one Never so close , always too far yet still staying behind me . He casts his softest glow reflecting orange and soul, He penetrates his warmth A fire ball of wants , Then fades ,fades away in the horizon. He is the sun, He is the one in a universe of nothingness . He fills our gaps,hopes and regrets Never so close ,always too far yet still staying behind me. I am the moon ,He is the sun He is the one...He is the one

Waiting For Sunrise

My whole life waits, just this moment, the ink still

wet; for sunrise this clear May morning.

My shaman up already,
hair askance, dancing and trilling his flute
to the crescent moon face,
lit by the blue iron square welcoming
the sun.

The Sun appears now...my expectations grow...

A foray into the secret riverbank forest, hunting
for Morels with my hobo friend ( by choice,
wishing not to support 4 ex-wives)  Clark,
he with his walking stick adorned with colorful
talisman ribbons accumulated from a life spent
wandering....me with my crafted Yucca stick
a friend made for me.

Then...off to pick-up heirloom vegetable plants
a master gardener has nurtured for me to
grow in my community plot, where my friends
are happy to see me.

Amidst all, I'll have Ma accompany me,
(not in the woods) but not far away, her
smile always eager to share in my discoveries,
a comfortable sitting bench at the garden awaits
her, the smell of fresh-turned soil enriches her.

Later, I promised her we would grill at one
of her favorite places she remembers going
with Pop, alongside Minnehaha Creek, the
water gently flowing this time of year, birds
singing and Ducks playing,

The Sun is up further now,
this poem must end,

my destiny 

awaits

Rest Upon My Wings

Rest upon my wings Climb up the old well The old well of solitude Of regrets in your vein The old well of darkness The old well of vacant spaces Sad tears that keep on falling like somber November rain. Rest upon my wings Climb up the old well Let loose the noose wrapped tightly around your neck Do not let yester's echoes Keep calling you back. Do not fall apart.. Listen with your heart to music in the streets Uplifting gentle spirits of sweetest melodies. Rest upon my wings Climb up the old well Just like a playful butterfly I glide and take you there. Closer to the sun,closer to the one The one and only garden where wistful flowers sway where pretty little daises Whisper-out your name. Rest upon my wings Climb up the old well Just like a playful butterfly I glide and take you there To that magical place where joy is not a myth where Villagers wear a smile They live and not exist To that magical place where nobody is too busy to stop by and be your friend Where everyone is willing to hold on hand in hand Rest upon my wing Climb up the old well Just like a playful butterfly I glide and take you there. Feel free to fly with me Open your eyes to see This haven that's been painted For them, for you and me.

On A Ballroom Of Stars

When I feel alone a gypsy soul without a home When nobody 's there with warmth to share When rattling rains are all I hear I close my eyes and take a ride On sugar-coated clouds I travel far to where you are. Far from a frosty afternoon One step closer to the moon. I fly up high to a blue -black sky Removing Her with all my might. I push away the lady in today To seek and find a happy child A happy girl that's trapped in me Still wanting to break free. A girl who lives inside Still struggling to survive. I close my eyes and take a ride One step closer to the music that's playing on my mind. Closer to late- fireworks burning in the night. An orchestra in concerto and a piano by my side. I fly up high to a blue black sky I dance above with the prince of love With wide-spread wings just like a dove. These waiting cheeks These open arms Young Ballerina waltzing On a Ballroom of spumed stars.
Just a fantasy song inspired by the movie Lalaland.

The Brilliant Spring

Crazy wind whispers 
Into the ears of ‘champa’
A light scented Indian flower
Trees are full of them now
Your love in each and every bough


The breeze is cool 
Because it is spring
Because it is south wind
Because everywhere is hue
Because it is warm with you

Blue hills and green plains
My room at sixes and sevens
Red bellied wood peckers drumming
Rhythm in feet nimble
Your twinkling eyes with dimple

Our roads are tremendously red
Ashok Palash and Gulmohar
They call it flame-of-the-forest
Love in red supreme
With you in extravagant dream

Books in eloquently colorful blurb
Beauty steps in every curve
Invitation in every nerve
The spring below and spring above
Your healing love 

 
Goes away alas the days
Of dance in soul in warm sun rays
Goes away your ocean gaze
Life in a twilight haze
Your beautiful craze


Ah if I could have turned the clock
Holding your hand in a Gulmohar walk
Only our hands and feet would talk
Around the clock  arm in arm
In your beauty and charm

Alas that is not to be a thing
Our time is as short as the spring

Beautiful Mirrors

Mirror mirrors show me mine, 
reflect to me the pure divine~

If my view of you is clouded and dim, 
I have thrown myself on the altar of sin~

If I perceive in your heart only darkness and death, 
I have stolen the fragrance of Spirit’s sweet breath~

If beauty be seen and echoed through you, 
my healing is sure and my vision so true~

If you unfold yourself and are open to me, 
I will not mirror your lies or the guilt that you see~

If your mind filters not the depth of my story, 
you will fall in my eyes and at once know your glory~

You will see the true purpose for the seeds you have sown~
You will witness the Divine in my eyes as your own~

How could I not know you, for I now see you clearly~?
How could I not hold you and love you so dearly~?

The illusion of borders between you and I 
is the reason, the cause, and the root of the lie~

When you're with the one you love

When you're with the one you love

Life...
is better shared by two
a double vision view...
is always better than one

Skies...
streaks of peaches and cream
what an awesome dream
I devour them with you

Bridge 1
Do you remember the days of old,
spent all alone?
Do you remember nights long ago,
nights so lonely?


I...
recall a... wild river ride
it may have taken some time
it's raging carried me to you

Why...
did you hesitate?
you were worth the wait...
life's better now, being with you

Bridge 2

Now darling,           we'll fly
through the turbulence of time
Let's fly...    just let the wind
blow us beyond the northern lights

Chorus
Life is so great...it's so wonderful
when you're with the one you love
Life is so great...it's so wonderful
when you're with the one you love

I've...
gazed at waterfalls too
what a majestic view
So glad I shared it with you

I've...ascended mountains so high
such a spectacular sight
made better being there with you

Bridge 2

Now... darling,            we'll fly
through the turbulence of time
Let's fly...together,      let the wind
blow us beyond the northern lights


Chorus
Life is so great...it's so wonderful
when you're with the one you love
Life is so great...it's so wonderful
when you're with the one you love

Chorus repeat
fade to zero

While You Sleep

While you sleep I tell you all of the things I keep inside throughout day.
Now that you can hear but not listen I find them much easier to say.
My hopes, my dreams, my fears, and everything in between
Your subconscious hears so keen, or so it seems.
My tongue is soft; I speak so sweetly 
Knowing your reaction will never greet me.

Tonight will be different in what I want you to know.
It has everything to do with what I can’t help but show.
I hold no claim to any religion but you’ve given me a place for my faith.
Somewhere it will never stale or lose its lavish taste.
You’ve shown me something I can see, touch, and feel, 
And so before it I choose to kneel.

I know I don’t say it but I miss you every day.
Sitting, thinking of the perfect words to be my choice,
Yet when you call I can’t find any of the right words to say.
I’m just happy to finally hear your voice.
Even just a moment is enough to sooth my heavy heart;
Fearing the ends of conversations knowing we’ll have to part.

I’ll never be too far from you, always within arm’s reach,
And in your days of darkness I’ll be the light that you will seek.
I’ll never let you leave too far from me, I’ll stay close behind you in this world;
Secretly protecting what is mine, you will always be my girl.
I only want the best for you so the best of me I will employ.
Faithfully yours, I will always be your boy.

I close my eyes and kiss your soft sweet lips
And see the very best of you in loving bliss.
I see past the physical which makes you attractive
And focus on the things I can’t see in which I’m attracted.
Your thoughts I’d love to hear them all.
Of the things you speak disinterest never makes its call.

My day will come, I know someday I’ll be the only one.
And you I will pursue viciously,
Because I’ve given you the greatest gift I can give, to love unconditionally.
Yes our day will come, I know someday we’ll be as one.
And you I will pursue viciously,
Because I’ve given you the greatest gift I can give… to love unconditionally.

I've Scribbled This Song For You



I've Scribbled This Song For You...


I'm wasting my days,
my empty nights too,

I should have held on,
but I simply lost you,

now I stagger along,

wearing broken smiles,
in between hell and you,
there's a million miles,

yes, I should have kept,
you close to my skin,

soaking your warmth,
but you were laughing,

at my foolish grin...


now I'm all broken,
and torn apart,

but what the hell,
I was always late,
for the tolling of the bell,

and now...

now I stagger along,

wearing broken smiles,
in between hell and you,
there's a million miles,

so kiss me now like you once did,
I'm tired of being so carefully hid,


la laa laa la laa laa laa...


(repeat to fade)

God Knows I'm a Country Girl

God knows I'm a country girl,
and wouldn't trade it for nothin' in this world.
Long brown hair and big brown eyes,
I'll take you on an exciting ride,
to the big beautiful countryside.
Get ready to hang on tight.
Gonna give you the ride of your life.
Hair whippin' wild in the wind,
hangin' out with my country friends.
This is where the fun begins.
Raised up on fried chicken and red beans,
sporting my tight fittin' jeans.

God knows I'm a country girl,
and wouldn't trade it for nothin' in this world.
We can sit on the front porch swing,
maybe sing or even daydream.
Gonna have a mighty fine time, 
sippin' on that strawberry wine.
Gonna live a mighty long time,
on this beautiful countryside.
Boy, I hope you enjoy the ride with me,
maybe we'll go fishing or even swimming,
watch the crane spread it's wings.
Ducks gathering on the big wide open pond,
lovebirds making a bond.

Yes, God knows I'm a country girl.
There is one last thing I have to say.
Barefoot and fancy free,
plain as the big outdoors I will be.
Why don't you take a ride with me?
Let me show you the big fine country.

Keyboard of my Heart

The Keyboard of My Heart
By

Stan Almendro

The Keyboard of my heart has no ivory keys to play
 Music comes from what I think, dream and what I say
A melody that people hear is my happy, sensitive heart
It is a song that will stay and never from me depart.

There are also no black keys in the keyboard of my heart
And you can in fact not tell the black keys from the white
No hands are found striking these keys that don’t exist
Yet the sweetness of the chords no heart can really resist

With no white or black keys in this keyboard of my heart
Where and how does the music begin to make a start?
No music sheet was written for this keyboard of my heart
                  Music that you hear gets your feet tapping to every part

No musician, grandmaster plays this keyboard of my soul
                  It sends forth a celestial joy to the weak and to the bold
The weak and frail are not excluded from this joyous tune
They need no physical energy to frolic from morn to noon

The bold and strong live in this music which never stops
It is not a piece of music bought in some corner shop
Because it’s not for sale the poor also to this music dance
Yes weak, bold both rich and poor all have an equal chance

No very expensive grand piano or master music hand
Is needed for the music seems is written in the sand
So as you see me frolic, dance to the music of the band
Ask that the keyboard of your heart be touched by the “Master's Hand."

OUR LOVE IS RIGHT

OUR LOVE IS RIGHT Now that I've found you, I'll not let you go Life was going nowhere, with you it just flows Times we spend heals my empty-bleeding heart I'll never allow a day, for you to ever depart Darling, your love place me on my fire Hearing you speak, I don't get tired Since I've known you, I get wired Tell me when can I hold you tight Tell me when can I hug your might Tell me when can I kiss your light? Tell me, darling, our love is right... Feelings of missing you doesn't color blue Instead it brushed hues of paradise view It pleasures me, I hymn our united theme I, a songbird, lured ears to stop and hear Each time you close those bright eyes I am struck to behold with guise You must know I don't disguise Tell me when can I hold you tight Tell me when can I hug your might Tell me when can I kiss your light? Tell me, darling, our love is right... Gazing at you, I see a vista of life winsome smile melting all my strife Hearing you, my heart leaps so tall Like Autumn leaves, am ready to fall Barriers broken as hearts and lips talk To ocean of motions we take each walk True love flowered, said by our own folks Tell me when can I hold you tight Tell me when can I hug your might Tell me when can I kiss your light? Tell me, darling, our love is right.. _____________________________________________________________________ 5:31pm, December 25, 2015

Velvet Wings

Ignorant to passing time
Reality strikes its deafening chime
Unspoken words pass between
I and you, my darling queen

Lay your weary head to rest
With your arms across your chest
Now it's time to close your eyes
Whisper your final goodbyes

Let me go, we'll both be free
Cross the wasteland, past the sea
Find the path to heaven's light
Break away from endless night

Embracing tears of bitter pain
Falling lightly with the rain
Out of reach, I hear your song
Alone again, I sing along

Let me go, we'll both be free
Cross the wasteland, past the sea
Find the path to heaven's light
Break away from endless night

From the night. . .
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I never saw you so alive
So alive
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I'll never ever say goodbye
Never say goodbye

Life has ended, you have won
Death befriended, pain is gone
Fly away into the light
Crystal clear and shining bright
Close your eyes for final rest
Meeting among the blessed

Let me go, we'll both be free
Cross the wasteland, past the sea
Find the path to heaven's light
Break away from endless night

From the night. . .
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I never saw you so alive
So alive
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I'll never ever say goodbye
Never say goodbye

I let you go so you'll be free
Cross the path of darkened sea
I watched your velvet wings take flight
I can never say goodbye
Never say goodbye

This Beautiful

This Beautiful

close your eyes now and dream of lands
we'll build our future upon those sands
open your ears now and let me whisper
let me tell you how we'll get there

hold my hand now and feel so safe
we'll be flying high above everyone else
rest your head now on my shoulder
even when we stop this feeling's not over

until the horizons of your heartbeat
to the earth beneath your feet
beyond the warmth of your breathe
I'll never let go, of this beautiful

open your heart now and let love inside
see what i see looking into your eyes
wrap your arms around and hold on tight
that feeling of you too much to embrace

open your eyes now awake to your sunrise
you are my day and my sweet night
close your eyes now and where they met
we will grow old underneath your sunset

until the horizons of your heartbeat
to the earth beneath your feet
beyond the warmth of your breathe
I'll never let go, of this beautiful

no matter where we end
we'll have found the kingdom
that place inside your heart
that place we've dreamed of...

until the horizons of your heartbeat
to the earth beneath your feet
beyond the warmth of your breathe
I'll never let go, of this beautiful

TIME

TIME
Before a child comes to the world ,it ought to cry
That sound makes the bearer happy
Isn't it an irony?
what is the child trying to say?
Man needs to cry to call for joy

Before the child walks,he crawls
When he tries walking, he falls
He continues until mama calls
He falls in pain
Yet  stands to walk again
What message is the child trying to convey?
Man ought to fall before standing high

His feet finally touch the land
He gets long legs to run
He turns into that great man
Things start moving high
He gets feathers to fly 
He moves over they sky
He completes his life span
He then says bye
Making people cry

He came making people happy
He goes making the same people gloomy

LET’S KEEP WALKING
– Sano Ami

I want to walk, to run with both legs
To hold hands, to offer a warm embrace with both arms
Yes, these are simple things that anyone can do
But not me.

But you know, its OK to believe that
Happiness arrives to those who hang in there
So I will keep walking with full purpose of heart and soul
Won’t you join me by not giving up but keep moving on?
Let’s keep walking!

I want to walk, to run with both legs
To hold hands, to offer a warm embrace with both arms
It’s tough to reminisce on the flood of tears
The overwhelming frustrations of being who I am.

But you know, its OK to believe that
Those who wear a smile always find satisfaction in life
So I will keep walking with full purpose of heart and soul
Won’t you join me by not giving up but keep moving on?
Let’s keep walking!

I am so thankful for my birth
So very thankful
So I will keep walking with full purpose of heart and soul
Won’t you join me by not giving up but keep moving on?
Let’s keep walking!

Closing Caption:
“Now and forever, I will keep walking and pursuing my dreams”

something beautiful

I want to write you something beautiful
Can I show you I am right here
I would live all my life alone to prove that
I'm so madly in love with you

When were apart 
I can't breathe
You have all the right parts
You fit perfectly in my heart

What you do to me
Is something beautiful
My missing puzzle piece
Pirate my seas 

You're all I can see in the horizon
This love navigates me like a compass
I pray it leads me to something beautiful
If it doesn't ill keep on trying 
until my last breath meets the face of death

I have a great love for  you
The unknown troubles us two
I'll be forever alone if I have to
Because I want something beautiful with you

White Lightning

Sprinkle salt and pepper upon my distasteful flavor
It’s been a while, baby
Since I saw you smile freely
I like to say ‘yes’…I’d like to say ‘yes’
To your beautiful face…
It was never a disgrace
Graceful gifts exchange
Waiting for a change for a change

White lightning
Can be rather frightening
Mighty storms in my mind
I’ve come to unwind

It’s been a while, darlin’
Where have you been? Where have you been?
I don’t like to say ‘no’…to you, no, no
I see your face shine aglow 
Shine aglow
Go with the flow
Go with the flow
Go with the flow
Graceful gifts exchange
Waiting for a change for a change

White lightning
Can be rather frightening
Mighty storms in my mind
I’ve come to unwind

Time heals all wounds
There’s nothin’ on my mind
Everyone’s actin’ like a million baboons
I see a million moons
There’s nothin’ to find
But, there’s peace to find
Graceful gifts exchange
Waiting for a change for a change

White lightning
Can be rather frightening
Mighty storms in my mind
I’ve come to unwind

Shadows…reflections…
In all directions
Gazing at the stars
Grazing in my own maze…mend not my scars
Mend not my scars
Graceful gifts exchange
Waiting for a change for a change

White lightning
Can be rather frightening
Mighty storms in my mind
I’ve come to unwind

Ridiculous colors
Blurs my vision
Everything around me blurs
Failing at my mission
To succeed…
Sick of the greed
Graceful gifts exchange
Waiting for a change for a change

White lightning
Can be rather frightening
Mighty storms in my mind
I’ve come to unwind

Graceful gifts exchange
Waiting for a change for a change
Brainwashed as a wild child
Running wild…running wild…
Sweet, sweet sorrow
Of yesterday’s tomorrow
Clothes me…so warm, you die in my arms
Your eyes close – no longer releasing charms
Chandeliers of hope
Hang like a hope rope
I mope…I hope…I cope
With pain...addicted to you as if you’re my dope
I need
I want
I feed
You haunt
It’s hard to stomach your bad news
Singin’ the blues…finding many, many clues
Sprinkle salt and pepper upon my distasteful flavor
Graceful gifts exchange
Waiting for a change for a change
Graceful gifts exchange
Waiting for a change for a change...

Surrender

Sitting in this empty room
Looking at broken pictures of me and you
A broken life together
I always thought we’d make it forever

What has become of me?
I never ever thought I would be
One of those who were beaten down
One of those who didn’t make a sound

Silent when you pushed me around
Silent when you covered my mouth
Silent when you raised your hand
Silent when you gave your commands

But something deep within my soul
Tells me to rise up and take control
Take a hold of my lost self again
Knowing if I don’t this might be the very end

You will not break me down this way
You will not darken my coming days
I am stronger now you see
And I will never let you kill the beautiful soul inside me

I am someone who has a voice
I am a woman who can make my own choice
I don’t need permission to be free
Or to discover the real woman inside me

Discovering the strength and power within
To let the bright shining sun shine in
To let my heart feel free and bold
To let my soul escape your choking hold

I’ve come to realize just a few things
That my life is worth more than two gold rings
Sometimes it has to be that way
For me to take ME back and then for me to say…

I am a beautiful woman inside
I will never ever run away and hide
I will rise to the very top
I won’t quit and I won’t stop

There is nothing that I can’t do
There is nothing left for me and you
So now I surrender and just let go
I am special this I know…..

On her way

The princess calls me out tonight 
She looks so beautiful, strong and bright
Tears stream down my face 
As I look at my darling with her shining knight

taking her away 
shes so beautiful today 
I know he'll love you till the end 
Forever, we'll be friends

Baby, Its hard to see you go 
Leaving us for this young lad
You wont be around, but i'll be glad 
You deserve more than this whole world 
Show mummy everything you hold

My darlings leaving 
to start her life
I can tell you, this one thing 
She will be the most amazing wife

taking her away 
Shes so beautiful today 
I know he'll love you till the end
Forever, we'll be friends

Bobby's Dad

My favorite song that I chose was "Cat's in the Cradle". 
By Harry Chapmin. I hope you enjoy my flight of imagination. 
See link to the original song at the end of my lyrics.

Bobby's Dad

When my son was born I wasn't a cool dad
I was rather awkward, and wearing purple plaid
Yet my heart was full and I was so glad
It was one of the best days that I ever had
In time, my son learned to walk and he learned to talk 
He so admired Bobby's dad from down the block
I admit I felt jealous, I wanted to be more like him
Tall, athletic, cool suave and slim
I wish I could be a whole lot more like him
Ya man, a whole lot more like him

Pop goes the weasel
Baby boy would never want to be me
Bobby's dad is amazing watch him climb that tree
Rock Hudson good looks, athletic and cool
Yes, I'm still awkward and often play the fool
But I tell you I love my boy, I'm thankful he's mine
To him I give everything and gladly share my time

Now my boy is in his teens, just as cool as can be
Sometimes he's embarrassed to be seen with me
Outside our window he climbs the big tree
I watch in awe as I sip on my tea
He's growing up so perfect, athletic and slim
My boy is amazing, I wish I was more like him
Ya man, a whole lot more like him

Pop goes the weasel
Young boy would never want to be me
he's so amazing watch him climb that tree
Super man good looks athletic and cool
Yes I'm still awkward and often play the fool
But I tell you I love him, I'm thankful he's mine
To him I'd give anything and gladly share my time

My boy's twenty five I can't believe how time flew
My neighbour says "You're boys nothing like you!"
When my son hears him, he says "That ain't cool,
my dad's my biggest hero and you dude are a fool!"
I feel so proud, he speaks up loud and free
Telling Bobby's dad he wants to be more like me
Ya man, can you believe it? 
He wants to be just like me!

Pop goes the weasel
My son wants to be more like me
Even though I ain't amazing, I can't climb a tree
Awkward and clumsy yet he thinks I am cool
He likes my sense of humour 
the neighbour's a fool 
He says "You've always been there dad
I'm so glad that you're mine.
When we're together, I have a great time!"

My heart has grown ten sizes
I tell you it's true.
I'm happy I'm me I don't need to be you.
Danny Devito like stature 
with my own crooked smile
Let me bask in the moment for just a little while
My heart is so full, I tell you I'm glad
Today's one of the best days, that I've ever had!

Partial lyrics 

 The Cat's in the Cradle

My child just arrived the other day
He came to the word in the usual way
But there where planes to catch and bills to pay
He learned to walk while I was away
And he was talking 'fore I knew it, and as he grew
He'd say, "I'm gonna be like you, dad
You know I'm gonna be like you."

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man in the moon
"When you coming home, dad?" "I don't know when
But We'll get together then
You know we'll have a good time then."

My son turned ten just the other day
He said "Thanks for the ball, dad; come on lets play
Can you teach me to throw?"
I said "Not today, I got a lot to do
He said, "That's okay."
And he walked away, but his smile never dimmed
And said, "I'm gonna be like him, yeah
You know I'm gonna be like him."

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man in the moon
"When you coming home, dad?" "I don't know when
But we'll get together then
You know we'll have a good time then."

Beautiful --Named For Celene Cresent--Thank You For The Name(:

[They] brush over closed lids 
                       of tear filled eyes, 
                                  if only known why, 

why they so sorrowfully cry, 
              but future tense gives none 
                            of secrets way to be held, 

and so the dreams fall to cries 
                  and the dreams of futures, 
                                                   barely tell...

God Of Wonder

God of wonder

Oh God of wonder, God of light
Who lives in heavens realms
I’m like a matchstick on the ocean
Without you at my helm
You made the flowers, you made the trees
You made the birds that sing
Oh when I put my faith in you
My heartstrings start to sing

Oh God of wonder, God of light
Once I so all alone
Did flounder like a sinking ship
All helpless on my own
Then I felt your breath of love
As my burdens you did lift
I looked into what you gave me
And saw my many gifts

I saw the sun, the moon and stars
I wandered midst your flowers
I heard the birds so sweetly singing
And I wondered at your power.

Oh God of wonder, God of light
How sweet you are to me
You gave me life that I might see
Your breath of mystery
Once I was blind and could not see
But now I see it all
Oh God of wonder, God of light
You are so wonderful

Such A Beautiful Life

Such a beautiful life

It’s a beautiful day
As the sun shines so bright
It’s a wonderful morning
Fills me with delight
I ain’t got no money
I’m not very smart
But I live with beauty
 That touches my heart.

I ain’t got no friends
That don’t bother me
Cause I live a sweet life
So, loose and so free
I’ll never be lonely
For I have all this
And the love deep within me
It gives me such bliss

I get up in the morning
And see the sunrise
Practice meditation
 That makes my heart wise
As I say to myself
It’s a beautiful day
It’s my joy to be living
As I live for each day

I don’t live for my country
No religion have I
Yet I find me in heaven
And I tell you why
It’s a beautiful day
As the sun shines so bright
And the whole of life’s beauty
Gives me such delight

lovers eyes

Not long ago our destinies aligned 
and of all the people it had to be you 
your fragrance in the wind is left behind 
as you walked by as i held the door for you 
we wined and dined and hoped to outshine 
the glittering stars of the night

you came at me in the midnight and held my hand 
with no constrains you took me away 
hand in hand amongst the sleepless souls 
Side by side through the half empty streets of mainz 
our brilliance playful act of love felt so alive 

Sitting down spacing out to thoughts and memories of you
uncertainty overshadows every dream of you 

piggyback rides and lingering goodbyes 
of the same mind tonight i hope we could be two 
mesmerised by the sparks between our eyes 
passionately yielding to this sensation you and i shared 
with fastened lips and no words to spare 
the essence of love was in the air in a surreal like dream 
time stood still for you and me  

Sitting down spacing out to thoughts and memories of you
uncertainty overshadows every dream of you 

an unseen dramatic contraction
of what seemed to be a lasting attraction 
Unanswerable questions are left in wander 
Unquestionable answers are left to ponder 
Words of love and poesy used to quickened you 
bittersweet traces is all that I now leave you

Silence is all that remained that only a wonder can break
To enlighten your heart and brighten your smile like a summers day is my aim

Kiss me

Kiss me love. 
Kiss me baby, I don't give a shit about what they say.
I don't give a damn what they think and am not ready to educate them on how to think about you.
Baby when they are talking just kiss me, when they feel like we should not be together just kiss me. If u are to scared I will.
When they say your boyfriend is dull, tell them his better than their ex, even their new one is not a chance. 
Kiss me baby, kiss me let them know we make love, kiss me let them know we are couple. 
 On a sunny day if u walking by and then it raining all of a sudden but u forgot to pick a cover, think of me I will shield u at the moment. 
But when their words are getting much just tell me.
If u can't handle it just call me. 
I can break jaws I don't give a damn, I will fight for u like no man does. 
I will make u pretty like no has, ur ex will regret leaving u but then it too late. 
Kiss me, just kiss me, no don't look, don't look at them they are haters if u still can still see them just kiss me. 
Let do it open, let show them how much I love you.
It won't work they say, let kiss in public so they will know we kiss in public, perhaps when I feel the softness of ur lips touching mine, I will go to another world for sure.

A Painted Moment





~ A Painted Moment ~

From deep within a painted moment 
Where shadows crawl through corridors
I peer beyond a silent thought
Where love, my love, sweet love of mine
Shall flutter free abound in light
From deep within, lost in flight
Again alone to wake beside 
The dusty book of dreams

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY

It's a beautiful day 
And I think I'll say,
That I've never seen one like this before.
It's a wonderful time
To refresh my mind,
On the joy that life can hold in store.

And the smile you see upon my face,
Is the gift I give to you.
If it makes you smile as you walk away;
Then, you've got a gift , you can give it too.

It's a thing of bliss,
Like a morning kiss;
When the sun says hello to my heart.
Takes me by the hand.
And I understand,
That the world is God's own work of art.

And the smile you see upon my face,
Is the gift I give to you.
If it makes you smile as you walk away;
Then, you've got a gift, you can give it too.
