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

Tea Leaves

Japanese tea house
sanctuary for the soul
translating warm leaves
splashes of a summer day
sipping exotic moments
~
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
