With so much to say,
I just wish there was enough time in the day.
These words I’ve left unspoken.
Here they are, they have awoken.
My feelings for you do all but shrink.
I swear you are my missing link.
The time we share, you make me care.
My heart still leaps like a hare.
I try to run from what’s been done,
But like my heart, I am undone.
Incomplete, I fall to my feet.
Eye to eye, I see defeat.
But you give me power,
to hold on just one more hour.
My love for you will never go sour.
If only we could be, just you and me.
Against the word, forever free.
Up I climb, into the skies.
Spent some time as mother’s eyes.
Shared her breath, my legs they hung.
Spent some time as mother’s lung.
Beaten paths with glossy roots.
These trails, they’ve seen many boots.
Sunny glades with shady spots.
Running through them, a rush of many thoughts.
Bathing lizards and singing birds.
Other people? There are no herds.
Merely stillness and solitude.
Filled with nothing, but gratitude.
Glaring at me, like sun after sleep
Was an eye.
The pupil, dark as night and the outline,
A golden glowing white.
Never before had I seen such a vision.
I heard myself pleading, ‘please don’t go away… please don’t go away’
As if I knew its visit was impermanent.
Slowly my visitor began to dissolve,
My eyes fluttered as if to preserve its beauty.
But like everything in this world,
Its existence was merely temporary.
Into life I am born.
In this life I perform.
With this life I conform.
By this life I am sworn.
The earth stood still today,
When we heard of your fall.
You were a son to some, and a friend to all.
Your smile and your laughter
Filled each room to the rafter.
Not a day went by
Without giving your best try,
but now all that’s left is the temptation to cry.
To mourn or to celebrate?
I think you’d choose the latter,
and crack a beer to commemorate.
A life full of love.
A man we were all truly in awe of.
Once a cock, now a clock
and always the sun.
Dragged back into consciousness
Fight off the sleepiness.
A frightful sound stalking like a hound.
Bark, bark…beep beep…Please! Just one more minute of sleep!
Whatever the sound be,
It brings one to their knee.
But why must it be a symbol of hate?
When all it does is open the gate.
A new day has broken,
the sun rises, a golden token.
The earth… awaken!
Fear not the cock or clock.
Fear not the bark or the beep.
Rise from your sleep,
the world is yours to take, forever to keep!
