I Wish

I wish you the courage to stay strong
When the world rather give up on you
I wish you much joy in all of your days
When your feeling no ones there
I wish you all the happiness
To overtake all your grief’s
I wish you all the glory and all the strengths
To bear all the burdens in this life
I wish you sunshine even when it seems it don’t want to shine
And storms to help season your journey
For they can beautiful sometimes
I wish you peace in this crazy hectic scary world
And way back in that corner of your heart
So nicely hidden
Where your truth is kept
I wish you all the faith, I have for you in mine
To help you, define your life
I wish I could wish more
Cept I can not
Though maybe love, I wish you love
To make the rest
Unforgettable

What Makes Us Fall

When times are bad and grief is high, what makes us fall.
Friends begin to stray away, what makes us fall.
Fill our car with gas or give our children food, what makes us fall.
The weak becomes the devil’s bait, what makes us fall.
Family’s homes are lost to debt, what makes us fall
The quest for happiness seems a waste, what makes us fall.
Vacations become a thing of the past, what makes us fall.
Love becomes so hard to hold, what makes us fall
U.S. goods become extinct, what makes us fall
The greed of of others tighten the rope, what makes us fall.
Losing faith in God above, That’s what makes us fall

The Object Of My Perfection

A tendency for passion where emotions run wild.

Your body language is appealing your beauty has no bounds.

Enchanted like a fairytale happily ever after we’ve found.

Your eyes so mesmerizing your essence is all around.

Your touch irresistible your finger tips heal pain.

A doctor in my eyes a lust so strange.

The object of my perfection a mother of all living things.

In your mind I’m father time so what we share makes seasons change.

When we’re together we’re one.

Relentless to one another’s heart.

What we share is a bond reincarnated a thousand times.

We were made to be together don’t let anyone else tell you different.

We will grow old together like Queen Elizabeth and England.

I hope everything that I have said has found a place in your heart.

Because I will love you til the end the same way I loved you from the start.

With A Tear In My Eye

I sat you down and try not to cry
But you looked at the tear in my eye
So I explained this isn’t working out
Then you began to scream and shout
I say it’s not you, it is just me
You say that it’s hard to believe
Because you did everything just right
And don’t understand that I just might
Not be as good at this situation
And didn’t mean this misconception
If you think you can do it better then explain so
Because I guess, I just do not know
But dinner will be late and I tell you why
I can’t see with this tear in my eye
This onion cutting isn’t a simple task
Maybe if I could wear some sort of mask
I know you’re hungry and I will still try
But this stings so much with tears fill my eye
You say your part is done and in the oven now
But you didn’t have to cut open that cow
Plus if you did it wouldn’t hurt your eye
That onion squirted brought a tear to my eye
I give up and you begin to cry
Now you see with a tear in your eye
I laugh at you while the onion you cut up
Squirts in your eye and you say shut up
I say I guess it wasn’t just me and we both cry
Because now we both have onion in our eye

Relentless

Of trees and seeds,
Timid flowers; clawing towers,
Planting ourselves with every gasp
Of air nature devours.

Unified and undivided,
We separate into submerging
Waters, engulfed by flavored soils
Hungry for more to grow, to extend.

What is within is without,
And trees do not know the way out
Until they expand their horizon;
Strong roots mold soils; delicate

Stems ignoramus
To fearsome relent,
On their path to rising.

You

My love for you is a burning candle
Slowly dimming throughout time
Your words hurt
Sending chills through me
I wonder if this would ever end
Thoughts scatter throughout my head
Dreams seem to leak into my bed
Screw-up, useless, words like these ruin me
I know I’m not perfect
And never will be
So why can’t you just accept me
For me

Vaudeville Is Dead

A funeral of sorts, for a dear friend,
And entertainer,
Who has passed.

Who once put on eclectically-billed shows,
And packed her houses
With rich picks from Comedy to Magic,
Minstrel to Acrobatics,
And the beloved Song-and-Dance,
Is gone.

Who once housed such greats
As Garland, Bojangles, & Gypsy Rose,
Is now just their rusty springboard.

Her theaters are all empty,
Nothing more than small-town dives,
And movie theaters;
A tourist’s Orpheum Circuit,
And elegance forgotten.

The performers have all left,
Their trunks packed with costumed fare-thee-wells,
As the trains leave her behind.

But they return for the eulogy.

Her house is packed one last time,
But there is not a dry eye in it,
For hey-day memories remain.

Her casket is open,
As one by one they approach,
And speak fondly of her.

But who once lifted war-time blues
With gaiety and song
Is now nothing more than Broadway’s little sister.

Alas, Vaudeville is dead,
And her casket must be closed,
And buried,
For nothing lasts forever.
