Smoke and Wine

This mind numbing Calliope of silence,
Echoing shadows dancing across my world,
Unanswered questions no longer seeking light,
Is this it, all that is left to me, the end of my dreams,
Optimistically turning from the gloomy trend,
I take another drink, light anther fag,
And dose with a sheepish smile…

Shining Soul

As my memories wane and fail,
The vision of your beauty grows,
As I knew the joyous young child,
I can now see a mature loving women,
Imagination fills the greatest gaps of time,
I perceive the happy times, the struggles, family,
Rewarding path of bringing the children to bloom,
Satisfaction at a job well done, life well lived fully,

I envy you my dear old friend…

Take Hold

Oh dear baby,
This be your time,
Step forward to soar,
Sweat Butterfly’s flight,
Power of your very soul,
Demonstration of your grace,

Capricious as a fairy,
Tenacious liken the eagle,
Desirous to fly to lifelong goal,
Journey across the whole of world,
Yet held hostage by the status whole,

Caged within my own skin,
Held back and denied peace,
Good intentions and rulers all,
Protectors be wardens of all life,

They continue to doubt,
Restrain us dispersiveness,
Unflappable your God given wings.
But, inside your heart building and stirring

you already know
One hell of a force calls you to act,
Float like the butterfly sting like the bee,
Reclaim your throne my dear Queen,

Believe in yourself again,
As if you yourself were Peter Pan,
Once more conquering Never-land,
Don’t over think it, right here, right now,
You have everything you will ever need,

Never go without a thing from fear of losing it,

Easy…

The Long Road

It’s been a long road,
Getting from there to here,
It’s been a long time,
But my time is finally here,
And I will see my dreams,
Come alive at night,
I will touch the sky,
And they’re not gonna hold me down no more,
No they’re not gonna change my mind,
Cause I’ve got faith, of the heart,
I’m going where my heart will take me,
Faith, to believe, in all my gifts within,
I can do anything,
I’ve got strength of the soul,
No one’s going to bend nor break me,
I can reach any star,
I’ve got faith,
I’ve got faith,
Faith of the heart,

Rod’s version

Living In Bliss

Past life is but a memory,
Hours flying past now gone,
Like transitory dreams given o’er,
Whose images are kept in store,
Not but visions left untold,
All to come is not,
How can I make it be mine,
These present moment’s of import,
Too fast gone as if never got,
Present be our holiest era.
Then talk of inconstancy,
False hearts, and broken vows,
Hold to the miracle of what can be,
This very minute true for thee,
‘Tis all that Creation allows…
