GOODBYES… a quick song

I remember when I was little

And I held my daddy’s hand

The memories come flooding in

So, I do the best I can

—————–

To try and hold back the tears

As I say my last goodbyes

Feeling the swelling of my heart

That’s spilling from my eyes

——————

You see, daddy always loved me

And I always knew it was true

And that is why, my little one

I always say – I love you

——————-

And there’ll come a time someday

When you will be standing where I do

Holding the hand of your little one

And saying – I love you, too

Yeah, holding the hand of your little one

And saying – I love you, too

RAINBOW… a poem of reflection


I have been the rainbow of yesteryear
Peaking only with the misty spray of the ocean breeze
Across the crevices of boulders scattered early in my life.
I have been the rainbow of my yesterday
Reaching over a mountain range of memories
Only to be lost amidst the cacophony on the other side.
I am a rainbow in the now
Doubled by the beauty of my reflection
Seen in the love of my life, full of conformation and joy.

MOONLIGHT… a short song

Why can’t the stars all come down from the night?
Clearing the cobwebs and making it bright.
And, where is the hero I promised to be?
Lost in whirlwind I tread cautiously.
 
Maybe tomorrow I’ll be washed by the rain
Removing this heartache
Removing this pain
And I never dreamed that I’d be here alone…
Yeah, I’ll keep on living…
And you’ll still be gone.
 
Moonlight it still shines there - down on the sands.
The memory is etched of us still holding hands.
And mountain tops glisten too peaked with their snow.
A lifetime is fading from years long ago.
 
Maybe tomorrow I’ll be washed by the rain
Removing this heartache
Removing this pain
And I never dreamed that I’d be here alone…
Yeah, I’ll keep on living…
And you’ll still be gone.

GUARDIAN… a poem

Come back to me when you find yourself

Come back with all of you

The fairy tale we called our own

Was a perfect dream come true

But fate lies in the nature of

This ever-changing world

You may have lost the one you love

But you’ll never lose this girl

You see, I have a pair of wings

And I watch you, everyday

So, when you find yourself again

Know your angel is okay

Someday, when I get home
I’ll kiss your lips with unbridled passion

Someday, when I get home
I’ll hold you close and feel your warmth

Someday, when I get home
I’ll whisper, “I love you” into your ear

Someday, when I get home
We’ll take long walks and hold each other’s hands

Someday, when I get home
We’ll fall asleep while watching the stars

Someday, when I get home
You’ll wake to see my smile

Someday, when I get home
We’ll plan our life and our future

Someday, if I get home
I promise I’ll never leave you again

Someday…
