And I Always Will


I'm not sure where this song begins
in fact I'm not sure where it ends
in my heart, a melody softly spins
my inner thoughts twist and bend

In a dream,  I met you so long ago
two lost souls in the silence of night
weeping in sorrow we said, "hello"
praying for wings to give us flight

In a vast universe you are my star
helping me through darkest times
singing the blues, strumming a guitar
poetic songs,  a melancholy chime

and I love you so
and I always will
admiring you from afar

I'm not sure where this song begins
in fact I'm not sure where it ends
in my heart, a melody softly spins
my inner thoughts twist and bend

In a dream, I saw you rise and fall
the journey has not been easy, I know
you're larger than life, I am small
I guess that is how the story goes

In a vast universe you are my star
helping me through darkest times
singing the blues, strumming a guitar
poetic songs, a melancholy chime

and I love you so
and I always will
admiring you from afar

sanctuary for the soul
translating warm leaves
splashes of a summer day

walking winding cliffs
dragonflies resting,  green leaves
enlightenment found
bird-songs,  mystical waters
breathtaking visions

Pieces of Sun, Slices of Moon

original artist unknown












open your mouth taste the rain
feel life pulsating in your veins
molding our thoughts into words
to the song of the mocking birds
riding a magical spinning wheel
layers of ourselves slowly peel
once again dancing in syllables
believing in dreams and miracles

listening to songs of yesterday

open your eyes, take in the sights
ride a dragon into a starry night
shaping our hearts, we can feel
show me something that is real
pieces of sun, slices of  moon
singing a tune in an ancient rune
in a tongue, that's never been sung
where a golden apple once hung

listening to songs of yesterday

Who We Are (Supposed to Be)

"Who are we... I don't knoooooooooooooooooooow!" (sing along!)
by Truedessa and Blue
Blue and Truedessa  who are we in this earthly show?
Do you wonder what is out there beyond passing clouds?
Is there an oasis with blue skies, a place for dreamers to go,
A refuge for wandering souls to stay as long as time allows?

Ah time's a crooked thing, Miss Blue — don't trust it for a second.
As days rush byyou think they're minutes ever since life first beckoned.
And what a life it is, this earthly show, filled with stars, and us,
Hired by the day to play some part, wondering what it is we do
Or who we are supposed to be.
We dream, we discuss, we count the clouds until the count is lost,
We feel small and yet so big; our voice is clear, our eyes don't lie,
And still we sense we do not see, and at what cost?
A refuge would be quite the treat.
If souls exist, I'm sure you'll find your seat.

Do you believe beyond the sky river awaits a golden castle,
Where knights and their ladies dance to a minstrel's song
Waltzing in blades of grass, no longer fighting earthly battles?
Would we behold a place of true heart, a place for us to belong?

Believe I don't. My show is here, and it's enough.
No sequels for this movie buff,
This actor, this dreamer of dreams and more,
This earthly knight when eyes are shut,
This dancer among dancers galore,
This believer in the here and now,
This earthly show, this time to bow
and take it all in: a dream that might come true.
Who are we?
Who are we supposed to be?
Don't say our show was called The Unremarkable Two.

"Who are we... I don't knoooooooooooooooooooow!" (sing along!) 
"Who are we... enjoying life's shooooooooooooow!"(sing along!)
"Who are we...we're distant stars all aglooooooooooow!"
(sing along!)

Lights Flicker

Photo source unknown













lights slowly flicker
fast approaching storm
lightning flashes in an ominous sky
trembling trees, dark clouds form
seeking refuge, birds quickly fly
thunderous roar, heaven rumbles
summer rain begins to tumble
cooling hot streets giant puddles
red robins safely huddle
watching night lights flicker
