Awake and Dreaming

There once was this one creature, many things they called it then Biology had not come up with names for these, my friend What in the heck? What in the world? What ever is that thing?

The Crystal Ball

Trapped inside a crystal ball, I know where this is leading to Nothing shatters that which matters, what matters is just me and you Let this boiling water come to simmer, love, let it cool down You know me and I know you and there’s no reason for that frown Calm Just wait I know … More The Crystal Ball

Here

I don’t care where you have been For your past, or any sin All that matters is right now and that you’re here with me today All the feelings now upon us You can tell me – just be honest I know I’ll feel the same no matter what you think you’ll say I’ve been … More Here

Lie Awake

Alone tonight, can’t sleep, it’s true Cause all my thoughts, well, they’re on you Where’d you come from?

My Small Sparrow

Days of old, days anew Days we have to think things through There is no shame in loss, regret We do the things we can, and yet Something else is always there Something else to burden, bear Something that we set our eyes Something reaching to the skies No one knows what lies ahead The … More My Small Sparrow

We all hear you say it’s so You’re lurking into this shadow You’re pulling thoughts inside my mind Out so they can see their kind I told you once, do not do this You’ll once regret what things you miss Stop it now, I’ll tell you how Please cork the bottle, with a kiss Keep … More Shadows

Seven Circles

Seven circles sit inside a silent stadium, they watch within One begins to shed his light, but learns that he’s committing sin Two then starts to make remarks, and quickly sees that he’s not fit Protecting Three was not in me and I should not have reached for it Number Four is at my door, … More Seven Circles

Lost

Suns can set horizons high And yet we know, the time is nigh Drifting ever closer, near The things I’ve heard I can’t unhear There is always time and place You write things you want to erase Just to find the pencils broke What’s spoken always remains spoke If only it could go away If … More Lost

Twinkle Twinkle

We Are One

Though you are gone, I won’t forget For you are still among us, yet Whispering your wise old words As I sit listening, among the birds I look to you. Look up, you see? I stand before you on my knee Grateful for the words you gave On how to love, how to behave Tacitus, … More We Are One

Birdsong

The path ahead, it’s new, you see Things needn’t be the way they seem They won’t remain as such for long For we can write our own birdsong Soothing leaves, they drift with ease They ride on every autumn’s breeze Gently gliding to the edge They are reborn upon the ledge Destinations, far unknown When … More Birdsong
