roots and wings

Standard

Dearest mother, You have given me 2 things. One is roots and the other wings. Roots to keep me grounded thru the toughest times, and wings to help me soar above my troubles into the sky.

dont give up dreaming

Standard

Dont look to the leaders for the answers;

look to the one who controls your destiny.
Don’t give up dreaming,

or your dreams cannot come true.
Don’t forget where you came from

or those who helped you get to where you are.
Don’t give up hope

when you are feeling blue.
Remember where ever you go

and whatever you do,

you always have a chance 
As long as you are true
True to yourself
Be your own best friend
And look out for yourself
And you can make it
You only have you in the end.

This is my Classic Rock Song

Standard

singsnap recording

Girl you’re everything to me. When you’re close I cannot breathe. You’re my sun, my moon and stars. Everything I need. You’re the center of my world. You’re my one and only girl. Without you there is no me. You inspire me.

This is my classic rock song. If you like it sing along.

Girl you’re smile is infectious and you’re look is perfectious without you I cannot breathe. You’re love gives life to me. I get lost in your eyes and I don’t want to be found. My whole life is complete when you are around.

a poem: a verse that rhymes

Standard

As poetry month is quickly drawing to a close, i will try to write a new poem here today without apology or plan…. wish me luck…

a poem

a verse that rhymes

not always but

some of the time

a paragraph

maybe two or three

written by me

maybe more if it please

a poetic license

un bought but earned

that turns a story

into a lesson learned

i make no apology

for this rhyme

it was not planned

and i had the time.

 

 

 

 

TRUE LOVE

Standard

TRUE LOVE IS UNCONDITIONAL AND UNWAVERING
IT DOES NOT REQUIRE A PAYCHECK TO CONTINUE
IT DOES NOT REQUIRE A COLLEGE DEGREE OR A NEW CAR
TRUE LOVE CANNOT BE BOUGHT OR RENTED OR SOLD
IT DOES NOT FADE AWAY OR ALTER INTO SOMETHING LESS
IT IS NOT DIAMONDS OR JEWELS OR A FANCY CAR
IT DOES NOT CLING TO YOU IF YOU OWN A MILLION DOLLAR BALL TEAM
OR PLAY FOR ONE
IT DOES NOT REQUIRE A LICENSE OR TAX SHELTER
IT DOES NOT LEAVE YOU WHEN YOU LOSE IT ALL
TRUE LOVE IS UNCONDITONAL AND FREE
IT IS THE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE THAT ONLY COMES FROM PARENTHOOD.

Mirror, mirror

Standard

When I look in the mirror, I see

Someone looking back at me.

From a mirror realm through the looking glass,

I see this tired old man with a sad and lonely past.

These were not the things I had hoped to see when I went to look in the mirror at me.
