Beyond the Clouds

The sun has come and sadly set
Nearly four hours ago
Clouds have slammed shut the night light
Pushing out the full moon’s glow

Stars are waiting to sail their shine
Though the darkness has prevailed
Breaking through above the clouds
With their bright lights unveiled

Now the clouds are burned away
The moon and the stars share
There’s nothing more beautiful
Or nothing that can compare

Peach Perfume

Pretty Woman


Walking by she smiles at me
Peach perfume flows in her wake
Right then I fell in love with her
And already felt heartache

She’s the boss’s pretty daughter
Me? Just his man and driver
She smiles at all opportunities
I feel like a ship wrecked survivor

My boss told me he was pleased in me
That I stood tall and never gave in
He wanted his daughter to understand
She couldn’t get everything on a whim

The big surprise he gave me that night
Involved my caring and heartache
He’d been watching me for several years
Wanting to call me son for his sake

The Prize

Opportunities will fall forward ahead of you.
It’s for all the accomplishments and work that you do
Keeping your eyes on the prize won’t take you anywhere
The presents of being mindful will always guide you there

Your Desires Deserve Revisited

Why are you making it so hard?
Keeping your lonely heart on guard
You want to get me down on my knees
To help you decide to become free

I’m too tired to try and play the game
Tit for tat is never quite the same
It’s time to come down on your own
Off your towering self-absorbed throne

This is our last chance before I leave
Let me turn back for you to see
Here I am giving my hand and heart
Your desires deserve a new start

Comfort and Peace

Listen to the wind, and the Jay mocking
This is our time now, hands locked and rocking
The lightening bugs, add stars to the sky
Moths crackle bright blue, into the yellow light

Anticipating the everlasting time for keeps
Silence between us, shows our comfort and peace
Cool night breeze brings us closer together
One of the times, we enjoyed this weather

The time that we shared has all but gone
Sunrise surprising, with the early dawn
The jay mocking should have been our cue
So should been the sky’s red, orange and blue

Your Debt

Tossing and turning, the night lingers long
She holds me hostage, her grasp very strong 
I heard my dream spin, her lips to my ears
Asking her to stop, only brought more tears

She’s proceeds to hurt, twisting more dam lies
With what we go through, another friend dies
Cold sweat brings the chills, blankets and sheets wet
She holds me hostage, they’ll never pay your debt

After All

Why do I cause these things to happen
I must have a need to embarrass myself
After all it’s a secret agenda to me after all
Who knows what the secret is besides her

It’s buried under the two for one head stone
She knows and rolls around laughing at me
Wondering how long I’ll be, she’s lonely
It’s time to see what my secret agenda is
