Time Is Passing Me By

Time is passing me by, once again.
I no longer know where to begin.
The children are almost out and gone.
Maybe soon it won't be long.

The house is quieter and more lonely, it seems.
I don't know if I'll ever get to live my dreams.
But for now, I'll sit and dream to live.
For the one I love, I'll always have my heart to give.

Time is passing me by, I have missed so much.
Living life to the fullest and such.
Traveling has always been a dream of mine.
So much excitement as I pass each new state line.

Once again...time is passing me by.

The Whisper

I hear a whisper in the night, someone is softly calling your name.
My heart pounds in my chest, I know not whence it came.
As I search the house silently, I hear the whisper once again.
Slowly I follow down the hallway, trying to find it if I can.

Danger lurks in shadows, I don't know what to do.
I just can't understand, why I cannot find you.
The whisper sounds so close, almost a breath away.
When I think I've finally found it, it comes from the other way.

The alarm clock is ringing, I awake with a start.
My chest throbs because, of my pounding heart.
Finally I realize, it was all just a dream.
The whisper was just me, calling your name.

Morning Star

For Richard and Latesha

The morning star is shining through, as I wait to
comfort you. My love for you will come shining
through, even when my heart is blue. How can I
find peace within, Darling, when you are not
here. I will always hold you dear, even when
I'm filled with fear. The nights already long,
as I cry another river of my tears. You keep
slipping farther with each passing day, my
dear. The days so lonely I can feel your touch,
in the rustle of the wind. The warmth of you,
in the touch of the sun upon my skin.I want you
to know, how much you mean to me.How your
love is what has made this change in me. The joy
you have given me, the love that I hold near. It's
what keeps me going, and makes your life more dear.
Darling, I love you, more than words can say. I will
always love you, day after lonely day. Sweetheart I
hope you know, how much these words are true.Because
you will always be, my morning star shining through.

A Glorious Lady

The wind whispers through the night
The world blanketed in darkness
The stars above a glorious sight
A beautiful lady in a satin dress

The rain, her tears when she is sad
The sun, her radiant smile
The thunder, her voice when she is mad
With these moods, she doth beguile

A storm, her fiery temper
Unleashed, her mighty wrath
The wind, a cape around her
Destroying what's in her path

Destruction, is still beauty
A glorious lady is our earth
So, I'll respect her duly
As she gives the world rebirth

For My Favorite Country Artist, Who Loves Flying

I'm up here soaring through the sky.
The clouds an endless blanket before me.
Soaring like an eagle way up high.
Blue sky as far as the eyes can see.

Freedom from the hassle that life brings.
Escaping the pressure and the pain.
Free as a bird, gliding round on wings.
Helps keep my spirit sane.

As I'm soaring through the sky.
And I look down at the ground.
I ask myself the question why,
Do I have to stay earthbound?

The answers no, because as you see.
I'm soaring once again.
Up here where I love to be.
Soaring through this endless plain.

The Leaves

The leaves are falling all around.
Covering every inch of ground.
Orange, red, yellow, brown.
Dancing a ballet as they float down.

Children rake with rosy cheeks.
Pouncing in the piles like sneaks.
Frosted doughnuts and apple cider.
One last swing on the old porch glider.

Making memories with ones so dear.
Is something special this time of year.
To remember, as we grow old.
The leaves are beautiful to behold.

As the seasons come and go.
The leaves make way for winter snows.
In the spring, they will come again.
I can't wait for it all to begin.

With each new leaf that opens up.
Signs of spring, bursting to erupt.
The leaves that fill warm days with shade.
Unlike our memories, they will not fade.

Every Time

Every time you call my name.
I know I'll never be the same.
My heart pounds at the sound of your voice.
I love you, dear, I have no choice.

Every time you take my hand.
It's like the burning of a brand.
I feel your touch deep, into my soul.
Your love is what makes me whole.

Every time that you are near.
I feel so loved and have no fear.
My hearts so full, that it might burst.
Not to have your love, would be the worst.

Every time that you hold me in your arms.
I know you'll protect me from lifes' harms.
I wish you could always hold me close.
So I would never feel remorse.

Every time I go to sleep.
I think of you, sometimes I weep.
I don't know what else there is to say.
I need your love until my dying day.

Heartache And Loneliness

Heartache and loneliness are my constant companions.
They have been my faithful friends.
They hardly ever leave me be.
No matter where I'm at, their shadows I always see.
If you were as faithful, as they've been to me.
My heart would not be broken, I wish I could make you see.
Heartache and loneliness won't leave me alone.
They are always with me even when I'm far from home.
With heartache and loneliness, I cry deep into the night.
I wish you were as true to me, then my future would be so bright.
What happened to the love, that you promised me was mine?
I need you to keep your promises, then everything would be just fine.
Heartache and loneliness follow me, wherever I may go.
Like the shadows in the night, casting to and fro.

Let Me Be

Let me be your inspiration.
The solace that you need.
Let me bring great elation.
In a world of grief and greed.

Let me know you love me.
And take me as I am.
Love me as gentle.
As a little baby lamb.

Let me be your hope.
When you're lost in deep despair.
Let me take you by the hand.
And show you that I care.

Let me make your world.
A lifetime of love and sharing.
Let me give you all of this.
With this ring I'm wearing.

Every day we're together, I can't ever be blue.
I love to take you places and get you special things.
Because I love the smile that each new journey brings.

Daughter you can come to me and tell me all your woes.

Mama's Little Helper

You're Mama's little helper, since the age of two.
Sweetheart I don't know what I would've done without you.
You are my special angel, you light up my days.
Your smile as bright as the sunshines rays.
I love you so much because you are my child.
And you are so beautiful, even when you're riled.
I can't imagine my life, or a minute without you.
Each moment you are with me, I hope you love me too.
I love to watch you grow as each day goes by.
And I wish the time didn't have to fly.
I can't believe how the times already flown.
You'll still be Mama's little helper, even after you have grown.

Thank You

For Vera and her father Ivan

Thank you for always being there.
To take the time to show you care.
For teaching us how to read a book.
Or to scold us with just one look.

Thank you for loving us as you watched us grow.
And teaching us everything you know.
For taking time to wipe our tears.
And chasing away our silly fears.

Thank you for doing the very best.
To help us study for a test.
Thank you for being a loving dad.
For that, we'll be forever glad.

Thank you for taking us to task.
When we took something and didn't ask.
We never thought we'd thank you for all these things.
But look at the miracle that time brings.

Out There In The Wilderness

Out there in the wilderness.
You escaped from all our dreams.
While I go through days of loneliness.
And muffle my frustrated screams.

Out there in the wilderness.
Although a phone call away.
You distance us more with your silence.
Day after lonely day.

Out there in the wilderness.
The days are fading fast.
I hope you've found your happiness.
Because ours is in the past.

Out there in the wilderness.
Know that I no longer pine for you.
I've found peace I must confess.
You no longer make me blue.

To my friend, Sandy

When life is flying at you and you've no where else to turn.
Take a walk along the beach...and watch the water boil and churn.
Think of only happy things.. that will bring you joyful tears.
To wash away the aching heart..and overcome your fears.

Saddle up your horse and ride through the shady woods.
Riding with the wind.. to blow away your changing mood.
Chasing away your heartaches at the loss of job stability.
But rejoicing too... that for once you're actually free.

Free to spread your wings and soar from the security of the nest. To shine like a beacon and give whatever choice your best.
Speeding faster towards the changes than you really want to go.
Hoping whatever happens is what you've been searching for.

When the world throws us a curveball...and we're running towards home base.
Some thing comes along and we land flat on our face.
Pick yourself of swinging... it's time to make a stand.
The answers will find you as long as you can come up with a plan.
