week 302 ~ a song full of missing

with 2 comments

me.302a song full of missing
family friends far far
away from here we sing
again for those who are

family friends far far
from where we’d have them be
again for those who are
here holding us up see

from where we’d have them be
to their destiny not
here holding us up see
through the mist a straight shot

to their destiny not
ours not without love loss
through the mist a straight shot
past nightmares turn and toss

ours not without love loss
dreams wishes that would sail
past nightmares turn and toss
love’s breadcrumbs on the trail

dreams wishes that would sail
away from here we sing
love’s breadcrumbs on the trail
a song full of missing

week 294 ~ my life will not wait for time

with 2 comments

me.294

my life will not wait for time
and it never waits for me
leap now into this sublime
moment that holds destiny

and it­ never waits for me
as I equivocate a
moment that holds destiny
to put the future in play

as I equivocate a
plan now to follow through
to put the future in play
there’s only one thing do

plan now to follow through
a dream is never no-fail
there’s only one thing do
when desire won’t derail

a dream is never no-fail
leap now into this sublime
when desire won’t derail
my life will not wait for time

I’ll hum ‘long

full of grace

love’s true face

week 271 ~ the year rolls itself up

with 2 comments

me.271the year rolls itself up
you’re home don’t ask for more
drop your key in the cup
grab a smile close the door

you’re home don’t ask for more
when miracles appear
grab a smile close the door
stash your dreams some place near

when miracles appear
it takes time to believe
stash your dreams some place near
there’s no reason to leave

it takes time to believe
move on slowly with grace
there’s no reason to leave
inhabit your new place

move on slowly with grace
drop your key in the cup
inhabit your new place
the year rolls itself up

week 264 ~ reach out and touch you

with 4 comments

me.264reach out and touch you
as you float away
it’s all I can do
can’t make this time stay

as you float away
have to dry my tears
can’t make this time stay
then your smile appears

have to dry my tears
you’re where you should be
then your smile appears
that makes me happy

you’re where you should be
I love you you know
that makes me happy
now before I go

I love you you know
it’s all I can do
now before I go
reach out and touch you

week 252 ~ I’m walking on a wire

with 2 comments

me.253I’m walking on a wire
with too many spells to break
where’s the truth who’s the liar
why’s it always give or take

 with too many spells to break
I’m wrapped in expectation
why’s it always give or take
there’s never a vacation

I’m wrapped in expectation
remaining real through the hype
there’s never a vacation
excavating true to type

remaining real through the hype
it’s a challenge to be sure
excavating true to type
nothing’s tainted nothing’s pure

it’s a challenge to be sure
where’s the truth who’s the liar
nothing’s tainted nothing’s pure
I’m walking on a wire

Walking On a Wire – Richard Thompson, sung by Linda Thompson

week 249 ~ the rustle of aspen leaves

with 18 comments

me.249the rustle of aspen leaves
a sanctuary of peace
unravel old time’s rent sleeve
and savor the sweet release

a sanctuary of peace
so laugh throw away the key
and savor the sweet release
when there’s nothing left to be

so laugh throw away the key
there’s no need to lock the door
when there’s nothing left to be
you require nothing more

there’s no need to lock the door
as your demons disappear
you require nothing more
what you’re searching for is here

as your demons disappear
unravel old time’s rent sleeve
what you’re searching for is here
the rustle of aspen leaves

week 223 ~ if I were there I’d kiss you

with 4 comments

me.223

if I were there I’d kiss you
right on the top of your head
banish pain and hug you too
so tight there I’m not instead

 right on the top of your head
I’ll fasten my favorite dreams
so tight there I’m not instead
here such a long way it seems

 I’ll fasten my favorite dreams
just a voice on the wire
here such a long way it seems
hoping fate is a liar

just a voice on the wire
those hard words I cannot change
hoping fate is a liar
praying time will rearrange

 those hard words I cannot change
wrap up everything that’s bad
praying time will rearrange
fix the truths that make you sad

wrap up everything that’s bad
banish pain and hug you too
fix the truths that make you sad
if I were there I’d kiss you

week 218 ~ we sit here chattering on

with 4 comments

me.218

we sit here chattering on
what’s worth keeping and what’s not
hearts silently breaking dawn
tiptoes away from the spot

 what’s worth keeping and what’s not
does life even matter death
tiptoes away from the spot
chilled through by our frigid breath

 does life even matter death
sits at the breakfast table
chilled through by our frigid breath
as she teeters unstable

 sits at the breakfast table
confused and very angry
as she teeters unstable
hides the truths we need to see

confused and very angry
hearts silently breaking dawn
hides the truths we need to see
we sit here chattering on

week 214 ~ she buys a new bed

with 2 comments

she buys a new bed
for her brand new life
turn the page instead
move on beyond strife

for her brand new life
finally beginning
move on beyond strife
it feels like’s winning

finally beginning
hesitation gone
it feels like winning
no longer a pawn

hesitation gone
past history struck dumb
no longer a pawn
whatever may come

past history struck dumb
turn the page instead
whatever may come
she buys a new bed
