WHERE I AM… a song

man holding card with seeking human kindness text

I now know that my God loves me

Because he sent you here to free me

You’re the only one to see me where I am

People passing by turn from me

Walking quickly to avoid me

Never ever recognizing where I am

But there is hope on my horizon

Just as sure as the sun is rising

And now I know that there is hope for one more day

(Chorus)

See me, oh see me

Wrap your arms around me

Hold me close to let me know that I’m okay

Free me, oh free me

From the world that never sees me

Help me get back upon my feet and walk away

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When you hit bottom that is all

You find there’s no safe place to fall

So, you just close your eyes and pray that it will end

Losing all hope is way too easy

Can’t I find someone to see me

To open up my eyes and search the world again…

They say there’s love that’s all around us

But I can’t seem to find it here

How do I look through heavy laden eyes of pain

There was a time that I was strong

But now that time is so long gone

Brother won’t you help me find my way again

(Repeat chorus)

See me, oh see me

Wrap your arms around me

Hold me close to let me know that I’m okay

Free me, oh free me

From the world that never sees me

Help me get back upon my feet and walk away

Help me get back upon my feet and walk away

EYES OF WATERFALLS… a song

Image result for man crying in the rain

As I stand here in the rain

I can’t tell

What were tears and what were raindrops

When they fell

And the puddle that is growing

‘round my feet

Will find a hole in my soul

When they meet

silhouette of person standing on sea dock under cloudy sky

Please don’t talk about horizons

And of time

There is too much going on, now

In my mind

As these ashes of her spill upon the wind

Into the ocean of this sadness

And the end

I remember when we met

On that playground

For both of us love at first sight

I know, profound

Well, the years drew us closer

As they passed

And then the vows that we exchanged

Had come at last

man wearing black jacket

But fate had written heartache

All along

Crashing down the world around me

With this song

All my dreams and all my hopes

Were trampled down

Now, in these eyes of waterfalls

Is where I’m found

Humanity… a poem

 
Little old Fiddlebrock Simpsonstien
Wondered the streets alone
He was a simple and quiet old man
His features like toppling stone
No one could understand him
When words did escape his lips
While some would laugh and tilt their heads
Others laid hands on hips
With head hung low like the setting sun
Fiddlebrock heads for home
An appliance box with newspaper floor
Keeps him warm from the fresh falling snow

The Last Song… a poem/song

You’re a damaged song

All your lyrics are wrong

How did you get this way?

Where is the child

That was carefree and wild?

What happened that dreadful day?

Alas I can see

The image is me

No music left in my soul.

A strumming of time

Without rhythm or rhyme

Has finally taken its toll.

Where once was an opus

Of treble clef notes

And bass that rippled the air.

Are now broken tones

Solitary, old bones

Displayed on a sheet of despair.

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…

WHERE’S THE GOODBYE…a song

Remember the times we talked through the night?

Yeah, that seems like so long ago…

And, maybe come one day it will be alright,

But, tonight I’m still here alone…

~~~~~~

(Chorus)

Why did the wind blow and take you away?

Where is the rainbow you promised that day?

Where are church bells we planned for all year?

Where’s the goodbye…

Why aren’t you here?

~~~~~~

Rainbow

I noticed the tide flow here on this beach.

It rushes in and out, but it’s always in reach.

And the seagulls swoop down and call out your name.

I know what they’re feeling…

I’m feeling the same…

~~~~~~

Silhouette of Man Standing on Rock Surrounded by Body of Water

(Repeat Chorus)

~~~~~~

Here at your headstone my tears falling down…

The silence it echo’s when they hit the ground.

And I know you’re up there and watching me – still.

But this broken heart’s… gonna take time to heal…

Why did the wind blow and take you away?

Where is the rainbow you promised that day?

Where are church bells we planned for all year?

Where’s the goodbye… I needed to hear…

Why did the wind blow and take you away?

Where is the rainbow you promised that day?

Where are church bells we planned for all year?

Where’s the goodbye… I needed to hear…

Yeah, where’s the goodbye… I – still – need- you – here…

MISUNDERSTOOD… a song

MISUNDERSTOOD

Image Credit

Cascading in a torrent

A raging river were her tears

How could he walk away from her

After all these years

She gave him all she had to give

Holding nothing back

But, now she’s standing all alone

He’s gone and that’s a fact

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

He didn’t understand her words

They cut him like a knife

He’d given all he had to give

He truly loved his wife

But in the words, she spoke in sleep

She didn’t call his name

A wall went up, as his heart broke

It could never be the same

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Refrain)

Don’t walk away… Misunderstood

Press upon your heart and soul

Lean into the good

Wrap your arms around each other

Hold tight and don’t let go…

Be faithful in your happiness

And love – will make you whole

(Repeat refrain)
