Only Tomorrows

When there’s a sunrise upon your face.
When there’s a shiver in your embrace.
There’s only tomorrows.

When there’s smiles, I often miss.
When there’s lips, I long to kiss.
There’s only tomorrows.

When there’s laughter, in moments passed.
When there’s joy, that promise lasts.
There’s only tomorrows.

When there’s tears, you pray won’t stay.
When there’s fear, you wipe away.
There’s only tomorrows.

When there’s sunsets, promise rain.
Let our sweet embrace wash away the pain.
There’s always tomorrow.

 

Love Can Bring You Back

This piano playing inside my head.
The keys have all gone black.
No going back.
Thin walls surround me.
No lyrics left to say.
No notes left to play.
Whispered words already said.
Crumpled pages already read.
Falling into the looking glass,
Mirror to my soul.

Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where–” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
“–so long as I get SOMEWHERE,” Alice added as an explanation.
“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”

Perhaps you were looking for me?
Follow the steps I’ve taken a thousand times.
Sidewalks worn like these shoes of mine.
Thoughts of you on my mind.
Are you already gone.
Perhaps I’m all alone?
Through the looking glass.
I see a ghost that must be me.
Sadness is all I see.

But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat:
“We’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat,
“Or you wouldn’t have come here.”

To the music playing in my head.
Play these seven notes for me instead.
Notes I thought were already dead.
The keys have all gone black.
Endless love can bring you back,
Through the looking glass.
If love can find you,
Any note will do.
If you can love long enough,
Any song will do.

If only you can walk long enough,
Any road will do.”

Hold Me in Your Heart

Capture

When I write,

Words may be erased.

When I speak,

Words may be forgotten.

When I hold you in my heart,

We share an eternity.

 

Hold On To the Moments

Hold on to the moments.
Daughters do.
One minute they’re holding you.
Laughter is your music,
Then the laughter’s gone.
Love’s forever, love’s never alone.

Hold on to the moments.
Daughters do.
One minute they’re holding you.
Words aren’t the answer,
When the music is all wrong.

Hold on to the moments.
Daughters do.
One minute they’re holding you.
Broken hearts left empty,
Now silence is your song.

Hold on to the moments.
Daughters do.
One minute they’re holding you.
Takes my breath away.
Love lives on, live for today,

Holds on to the moments.
Daughters do.
One minute they’re holding you.
Reaching deep, raising you.
I’ll never stop loving you.
Love’s forever, love’s never alone.
You’re never alone.

Kiss the Rain inspired by Yiruma

You can.t kiss the rain.

You can’t kiss the sun.

But kissing you is a gift from God.

Between the rain drops,

Through the rays of sunshine,

All I can see is you.

 

 

Shadows

Shadows forming in my mind,
Clouds race to shelter the sun.
Passing quickly.
Not lingering.
Not hiding.
Thoughts are where,
Thoughts have never been.
Shapes of you,
Like a kaleidoscope in my brain.
Spinning.
Have me completely turned around.
Hoping you were gone.
Now I’m missing you.
Drift away,
Drift away.
Tomorrow’s another day.
Or stay.

Precipe

Hi Mom

Echoes of the past,
Haunting me.
Steps alone.
Steps in the driven snow,
Only I can follow,
Only I can know.
A path ill forgotten.
The journey, a pause,
Takes my breath away.
Reaching back to the life,
I’ve been given.
Breathing life back,
Back to the future.
Where only I can,
Know who I am,
Alone.

Successful business people stand on ground that is “crumbling beneath their feet,” Joseph Schumpeter
