TEARS

Tears
Tear apart
Or
Heal.

Tears
Happy
Or
Sad.

Tears
Laugh
Or
Cry.

Tears
Well and run
Catch them
Before they fall.

DORIS, DAY


Romance on the high seas
The thrill of it all
It happened to Jane
Calamity Jane.

In
The glass bottom boat
By the light of the silvery moon
On moonlight bay.

Under
The tunnel of love
In
April in Paris.

With
The man
Who knew
Too much.

Popcorn
Ready
Soda pop
Too.

Oh,
Que
Sera
Sera.

Its
Another
Doris
Day.

ASHES OF ROSES

On their wedding day
He gave her
Red roses
After they wilted
She threw them
In the fire.

On their anniversary
He gave her
Yellow roses
After they wilted
She threw them
In the fire.

On her birthday
He gave her
Lavender roses
After they wilted
She threw them
In the fire.

At
Her
Funeral
He placed
Pink roses
On her door.

At
Her grave
He poured over her
All
The sifted
Ashes of roses.

WINNERS

Although we are strangers
Both of us had
Sometimes have lost.

Determined to win
To overcome our shortcomings in life
We don’t give up.

Your obstacles are different from mine
I know how you feel
Sometimes it hurts.

You and I have a special style
No one can change
It is all we can offer.

People have let you through
You have shown you are capable
Some understand, some don’t.

Oh sure, they love you
I love you more
Some reasons are the same, some are different.

Together we have fought our obstacles
Together we have won
Together in spirit, winners we will always be.

Sent it to him, he responded
We corresponded for ten years
Saw him in concert three times
We met in 1990

HEAR MY SOUL SPEAK

Listen
To my prayers
When I pray
Hear my soul speak.

When
I cry
Look beyond my tears
Hear my soul speak.

Know
My heart beats
Love for you
Hear my soul speak.

The words
I write
Read between the lines
Hear my soul speak.

INSPIRATION POINT

Sometimes
My inspiration point
Is
Because I’d like to.

Sometimes
My inspiration point
Is
Because I want to.

Sometimes
My inspiration point
Is
Because I need to.

Sometimes
My inspiration point
Is
Because I’d love to.

DAYS ENDING IN WHY

Yesterday
That
Happened.

Today
This
Happened.

Tomorrow
It will be
Something else.

Sometimes
The only question is
Why?
