sunday morning, 600AM
straight out of your dreamlike existence
here you are again
filling my head with unmentionable thoughts
scratching my back
with your passionate words
your long fingers
counting out the reasons
why love needs
to seek love
to feel love

I see you
I feel you
but, still I want to breathe you

many lives go unchanged
in part, because of needs
but change is the only
certain thing
after all

we live
miles away
but there are
only inches
between our hearts
and I have my ear
on your chest
listening intently..

I don’t want
to miss
a single beat…

Austin

Austin

star filled aspirations
always shooting…
always just out of reach

green-eyed inspirations
confirm
what I already knew

love knows no limits
until we set the rules

the only time
Austin
really got weird

was when you
went away…

April Moon

April Moon

April moon, I know she sees you
lighting up the sky tonight
would you tell her how I long
to have her arms around me tight
I’m not good at introductions
and my head is in a whirl
April moon, c’mon and help me
she’s a really special girl…

April moon, you have the magic
as you sparkle in her eyes
bringing dreams to hopeful lovers
painting diamonds in the skies
I feel grateful for the mornings
I put all my faith in love
April moon, I need enlightenment
shining down from up above

if tomorrow comes up empty
I won’t let it bring me down
any minute, any mile
that’s the way that love is found
I can feel her moving closer
and her scent is in the air
April moon, please help me find her
She’s the answer to my prayer…

Packed

Packed
lyrically,
your whispers sing the
peacefulness
in your eyes

for a moment
or two
I thought I remembered,
and I thought
I might sing along

but time
has robbed me
of some memories
or maybe
stacked them
into rooms
I can no longer visit

packed and ready
for when it’s time
to go

In The Time ( It Takes To Love You )

In The Time ( It Takes To Love You )

in the time it takes to hold you
I’ve gone dancing with the stars
to the rhythm of the oceans
and the pulse of steel guitars
I’m surrounded by the aura
of a moonlight rhapsody
and your arms describe the beauty
in a perfect harmony

in the time it takes to kiss you
I’ve gone swimming in your eyes
diving deep in liquid laughter
where the springs of love arise
such a crystal clear devotion
such a simple honesty
I am twice the man I’ve dreamed of
when you’re gazing back at me

in the time it takes to love you
I have come to understand
that the door to ever after
is best opened, hand in hand
as your kind and gentle nature
brings an educated smile
in the time it takes to love you..
you have loved me, all the while…

Fork In The Road

Fork In The Road

There’s a fork in the road
and I can’t clearly see
if the path that you’re choosing
is the same one as me
I believe in your words
and I need them so bad
you’re the love of my life
and I’m lonely and sad
there’s a fork in the road…

there’s a time in your life
when it matters to be
not just happy with you
but still happy with me
you may give all you’ve got
and get less in return
but the paths broken off
and there’s cause for concern
there’s a fork in the road..

there’s a fork in the road
and I’m taking your hand
and I’m pulling you close
on this path where we stand
it’s together I crave
and tomorrow I need
and it’s only your love
that can make me proceed

there’s a fork in the road….

Breathless

breathe

Breathless

You’re my unrequited lover
you’re my private little sin
still, I’m dancing in my corner
set to take it on the chin
I’m excited by the pleasure
of a brush against your skin
till your eyes lock into mine and
leave me breathless, once again….

I’m the ever eager bloodhound
living only for the chase
you’re the soft and sexy princess
dressed in alabaster lace
and I long to be your lover
but I’m proud to be your friend
for the way you smile gently
leaves me breathless, once again..

I may never know the pleasure
of your breath upon my face
or to taste the night at sunset
while I drown in your embrace
yet, I’ll wait upon the threshold
on the chance of slipping in
it’s the love that dreams are made of
and I’m breathless , once again…
