The Restraint of a Saint

What about yesterday you had no complaints
You complimented my old technique with your taint
Now the third degree when you knew I wasn’t a saint
Dam be your pleasure now I’ll show more restraint

First summer Saturday syncs us all
Making all our problems appear small
Gain and reinforce family allies
And distance ourselves to those who lie

Looking at this with wide open eyes
Reunions are more than warm apple pie
Jealousy of those who have succeeded
Their harvest came because they seeded

Jack stole the plum pie and thought it was good
We knew the truth because Jack’s a hood
Some of the family were plum glum
Forgiving Jack thence love overcomes

You Hold our Love in Your Hands

I shake and shiver before your presence
You hold my love in your hands today
I didn’t mean anything talking to him
A friend from the past catching up our loves

Now waiting for your distrust to go away
He can’t enter my life, he has his own
We remembered our friendship we once held
Friendship has past and it’s just a memory

You and I have developed a stronger bond
Reasoning without the whole picture blows up
You’re the only one lover and friend
You hold our love in your hands today
