Keep It Real

Don’t ignore the pain

Allow the hurt to be

Suffer and you gain

Endure the misery

Pain is part of life

Allow yourself to live

Learn from what you get

To heal is to forgive

Everything we are

It all can be a gift

Dropping from a star

Can show you how to lift

Hurt but I will heal

Accepting this is real


Work: Love

A bit of an abyss

Profound was lost in dark

Evaporated bliss

The man without an ark

The day it grinds me raw

The mill is mine to tread

I wonder what it’s for

This living almost dead

But you are in my dreams

And sometimes in my bed

So nothing’s what it seems

If you aren’t in my head

It’s time I turned around

For you is where I’m found


The never being hurt was what was hurting

Protection that became Achilles’ heel

The pain of not allowing to believe in

Reality is something we can feel

And so this time I know that I am falling

But hope that you are there and so I drop

I listen and I think I hear you calling

Not knowing if this love is start or stop

I’m on the line and I am not withdrawing

What’s in my heart I’ll share with you today

One smile and like the lark my spirit’s soaring

I’ll say three little words and come what may

I love you and I want to start the journey

And if you feel the same let’s share the ride

Let’s bid farewell to careful and to lonely

Together hand in hand and side by side

And maybe this will be love everlasting

Or we might sink before we learn to swim

Together in this net that we are casting

To drown unless our love can pull us in


In my ears your tales were told

In whispers under sheet

In those arms a gentle fold

In you I am replete

In the morning passion spent

In dreams we ran away

In your kisses heaven sent

In happiness we lay

In the future we will meet

In dreams until that day

In the meantime lover sweet

In absence fond I lay

Communication Breakdown

Who are you forgetting me

Message in bottle sent

Thought like waves across the sea

Written words you never meant

Where are you belonging now

Sharing all I gifted you

Want to stop my longing how

Changing isn’t what I do

Why did constant come to end

Can forever never last

Like a book to freely lend

Future from disrupted past

Question you don’t give your word

All the silence I have heard
