Eternal Rhyme

Eternal Rhyme


Day has come; the night has fled.
Hope has sprung and raised its head.
Worries wonder about what to do
The heart is warming; its beat is true.

Another day has come along.
You have a chance to sing a song
different from the ones before
that rubbed your heart and made it sore.

Spring’s returned into your step.
The warmth consoles and gives you pep
to march this day against your ‘foes’
and stand your ground in sweet repose

and show the world just how you’re made
not soft and easy, as once portrayed
but ready to stand to fight the fight
with lifted ‘sword’ for what is right.

Vanquish worries that hold you down
and guard the spirit, you’ve turned around
and be what you are….and be it strong
cause this is you….this is your ‘song.’

Not all will like it, but that’s okay.
Life is different in every way
and you are needed to share this time
and play your part in this eternal rhyme.

“….But Not Forevermore”

Love is one routine that, if not guarded, is a vulnerable sensitivity that is easily prone to being taken for granted.  This is actually one of the many songs I wrote for my young wife, a few years back.

“……But Not Forevermore”

I will love you all through the night
until the early morn.’
And there I’ll watch your beautiful eyes
open to the morn.’

And if you ask me to kiss you again,
I will lean over and kiss you again.
And then I’ll leave you there in the light,
….but not forevermore.

And I will dream of your beautiful hair
the time that I’m away,
and try to rush the hours of dark
that bring the end of day.

And I will pick you up in my arms
and hold you very tight.
In timeless ecstasy, together we’ll fly
all through the fleeting night.

And then I’ll watch your beautiful eyes
open to the morn.’
And then I’ll leave you there in the light
……but not forevermore.
