Look Back In Anger

You know who I am, he said
The speaker was an angel
He coughed and shook his crumpled wings
Closed his eyes and moved his lips
Its time we should be going
(waiting so long, Ive been waiting so, waiting so)
Look back in anger, driven by the night
Till you come
(waiting so long, Ive been waiting so, waiting so)
Look back in anger, see it in my eyes
Till you come
No one seemed to hear him
So he leafed through a magazine
And, yawning, rubbed the sleep away
Very sane he seemed to me
(waiting so long, Ive been waiting so, waiting so)
Look back in anger, driven by the night
Till you come
(waiting so long, Ive been waiting so, waiting so)
Look back in anger, feel it in my voice
Till you come
(waiting so long, ahhh...)
(waiting so long, Ive been waiting so, waiting so) (waiting so long, Ive been waiting so, waiting so)
(waiting so long, ahhh...)

When I Look Back

When I look back
On the dreams I left behind;
Buried there in all my thoughts
It is you I always find.

I saw you then as I see you now
Through loves impassioned blindness
A heart so fashioned there within
Filled with love and kindness.
How often has my heart declared
With anguish, for my words are few
That the wind shall blow a little longer
To keep me here with you.
Sweeter still are the pains of love,
The bonds of love grow stronger,
Even after the moonlight has gone to sleep
I shall always love you longer.
No other can stir my heart so deep,
Or thrill me through and through,
And in my dreams there will never be
No other love but you.
When I look back to times gone by
There is one sure thing I know
It is you my love, who stole my heart
Fifty years ago.

Richard Netherland Cook
Written for our 50th wedding anniversary

I Don't Look Back

I was born to travel down blue highways
I never seem to learn much from my past
I don't make excuses for my mistakes
I take each day and I live it
Like it was my last
I don't look back
One foot in front of the other
On this one way track I don't look back
I live my life my way
I don't look back
I'm sure there's memories I've missed out on
There's been a couple of loves I've left behind
I haven't found a heart hat I can count on
But don't feel sorry for me
I ain't the lonesome kind
I don't look back
One foot in front of the other
On this one way track
I don't look back
I live my life my way
I don't look back
No I don't look back
I don't look back
One foot in front of the other
On this one way track
I don't look back
I live my life my way
I don't look back
I live my life my way
I don't look back
No I don't look back
No, no I don't look back
I don't look back

Dont Look Back

Time to walk away
Youve run out of things to say
Everything ends up the same old story
You dont know where love went
But nothings making sense
You both know you cant fake it anymore
Dont look back hell see you cryin
Dont look back on love thats dyin
Make believe your heart is made of stone
Dont look back into his eyes
Youve already said goodbye
Its over now; youve got to let him go
Hes the one you love
But sometimes love is not enough
Its too complicated to explain
No you never will forget
But youll get over it
Someday just sweet memories will remain
So dont look back; dont break your will
Dont look back at him until
Youre far enough to let your feelings show
Dont look back into those eyes
Youve gone back so many times
Its over now youve got to let him go
Theres a time for everything including leavin
Theres a time the heart admits defeat
And starts its grieving

Dont Look Back

Woman left for another man
Took youre car and a steely dan
Theres only one thing to do
Keep on walking and dont look back
Head on down to the chicken shack
Go and act like a maniac
Keep on walking and dont look back
Had a little trouble with a guy at work
Got a great big mouth for a little jerk
Got a lot of bills one check wont pay
And a love thats real is fading away
Theres only one thing to do
Keep on walking and dont look back
Head on down to the chicken shack
Go and act like a maniac
Keep on walking and dont look back
Keep on walking and dont look back
Dont you just sing the blues
Keep on walking and never look back
Put on your walking shoes
Keep on walking and dont look back, never look back
Just chalk it up to history, set yourself free
Keep on walking and dont look back
Head on down to the chicken shack
Go and act like a maniac
Keep on walking and dont look back

The Ones Who Now Look Back

For most of their lives,
They did exactly what they wanted.
And signs of change,
Were beginning to glow...
With neon messages no one could ignore.

Those choices chosen,
Were made regardless of objections raised...
By those who were told where to go.

And those places told where to go,
Have been taken without looking back.

And the ones who now look back,
Wondering where those who were told to go...
Away to live in their own worlds,
Have done so to live lives...
Without taking theirs for granted.

As those who look back seeking satisfaction,
Have come to realize their own satisfactions...
Had been placed on the wrong track.
With a blaming on others,
As to where their lives lived are at.

'Excuse me,
But can you tell me...
If that boat that sailed many years ago from here,
Is due to make a comeback anytime soon? '

~I'm sorry I couldn't.
I don't live in this neighborhood.
Have you tried asking any ot those people over there,
Standing on the corner watching their lives go by?
I'm sure they haven't been anywhere.
You could spend time with them reminiscing.
And they could probably answer that question for you.~

Look Back

Don’t let your mind feel you are fulfilled
The moment it is in, you are simply killed
It is crusade against willed
The void can then never be filled

You have all the means to carry on
The success had made it known
You were praised in all the quarters
People were for you and running after

So far you were firmly to mother earth
No one dared you even death
You were in your youth
And you fought for only truth

You could raise your voice
That was loud and clear with full of promises
You took care not to make slight misses
Vow to finish it before your demise

This was possible when you were fully active
It was aimed at and fully subjective
In fact nothing could prevent you for pursuing
As new and unique task was always ensuing

Now time has come to call off day
This is how one feels on the way
You desire to sit under the shed
As you had so far successfully led

When you look back, your eyes wonder
It was no less than cloud’s thunder
It rained as and when you wished
The outcome was well within and finally finished

Join with me in my endeavor to celebrate
Wish me success that at no stage my mind vibrates
Sink with differences and goes of the track
Infuse it with strong resolve to come back

Stay active till the last day
That may keep all the tensions away
What else you need now to worry?
Look back to enjoy and not to feel sorry

Look back with

Look back with

Gone are not the days
But not the memory of un-parting ways
How were those days of prime importance?
We never missed them even at once

What were we doing in those golden moments?
Looking at sky as if made pair in heaven and sent?
Never to miss company even for a second
Swim likes fishes in transparent pond

Whole colorful world to enjoy and see
Hand in hand and roam very free
No fear and mistrust any time
Little sweet fight in evening sometimes

What may leave behind for our children?
A nice forecast of future all of sudden
Even this companionship is not realized yet!
We dream and decide the ultimate fate

Calm and cool nights help nothing
Yet transmit signals for something
See the days in life bright and sunny
Smile always and try to be funny

Take everything in challenging mood
Don’t be burdened with bread and food
Search for common but permanent roof
That may make days wonderful with full proof

When children may notice our departure?
It may remind them to make life secure
Our gray hairs may make them to feel
The shows are to be staged and not attempted to steal

Even if you try to be little human
Prove worthiness of man of woman
It shall be leaving behind a trail of significance
That may speak of volumes not attained by chance

What are past, present and future?
Until you make them live and assure
either you add rainbow colors or keep blank
No one may question but certainly not thank

Don’t Look Back

Don’t Look Back, but just ahead, when by The Shepherd we are lead,
Once our hands are on that plow, let the Lord fill your heart with wow,
Looking towards what God will do, as the past He’s seen us through,
So do not allow your faith to lack, when in your heart, you look back.

When tempted to look back instead, we’ll be simply filled with dread,
Not looking to the One in control, we shall waver and sometimes fall.
God may be working in those we know, to help them and us to grow,
As we journey on unplowed ground, only in God is true peace found.

We must plow ahead in faith and trust, as God above leads all of us,
And when we do face a setback, Christ, provides that peace we lack.
We can't turn to the left or right, but, rely on God’s Power and Might,
To deliver us from the darkest place, through the power of His Grace.

In faith, we can all move forward, with our eyes focused on our Lord,
Not upon anybody or anything, but, steadfastly upon Christ our King,
Who presently reigns in our heart, and from our lives He won’t depart,
As He guides us straight and true, in any situation all the way through.

We could plow through any fire, when God’s Will becomes our desire,
Coming through them truly purified, with Christ our Savior by our side,
And as Believers, being Spirit lead, we’ll move for Him straight ahead,
While on our way to Heaven above, strengthened truly by God’s Love.

A no to look back

I looked back
It offered me only shock
I was standing on top of the rock
It looked as if I was crack

You look the world from zenith
It looks tiny from beneath
You may get little uneasiness to see
As you are on top of the tree

It is easy to reach on top
Once there means a full stop
You got to maintain and stay
This is the only way

Stick to what the philosophers say?
Abide by the sayings and pay
Full attention to what is to be done next
With full throttle force to deliver the best

Can you imagine how much time it has taken?
Can you count how many days it has shaken?
Can you put simple logic to arrive at conclusion?
Was there any external force or compulsion?

Now you have got what was aimed for?
There was no peace or no war
It was race for survival and betterment
There is glorious success for your movement

It should have gone other way round
You could have lost the prestigious ground
That could spell you the doom's day
It was only option for exit way

You never look back when going ahead
You got to be inspired and lead
The fall out is clearly read
You are the only one to head

The fortune may swing in any direction
It may depend only on your action
Whether it is half heart try or full attempt
It will bring some results if you are very prompt

It was all done and forgotten
The achievement was well spoken
You did take it as small token
No were your promises were broken

It has become now more important
To maintain it in spirit and constant
The success has not come as instant
It was well taken as good intent

Try to garner the support
Maintain good will and rapport
This will stabilize the position
Honor and repute will be good composition

It is difficult to remain on top
Some one else may also try to stop
It may be your own capability
That may prove your worth and ability

Love to remain with and among
It will never prove you wrong
You may be hailed as true contender
You will recognized as leader or commander

The zenith and fame comes with the success
It is happening with all the cases
It has to come in any way
It is proclaimed as golden say

If I Ever Get To Look Back On All Of This

If I ever get to look back on all this
even if it's just to show me how wrong I was
about so much, how much I risked for so little,
I don't want to have been mean and petty here,
I don't want to have lived short-minded
as if my brain never grew to its proper height
and I had to live close to the ground
with burrowing wasps and centipedes
trading toxins in the grass like slumlords.
Tried to live like a magnanimous man
with an open hand whenever my luck kept pace
with my generosity. Didn't want to die
knowing nothing about the stars, that shining
that grew in time even brighter in the dark within.
Wanted to know the fury and compassion, genius,
the affable kindness, madness and love of humankind.

Used to say we were born to see and be happy,
and if you couldn't find a meaning that suited you,
make one up of your own. Don't waste
the great creative potential of the absurd
and try to fit yourself like a little polyp of sentience
into the fossilized coral reefs of the past.
Go for the galaxies. What's to lose?
If you're going to fall, fall from a height.
Sooner a brilliant failure than a mediocre flight.
You'd be surprised at what the timing of one comet
falling out of the black halo around the sun
can mean to millions watching down below for signs.

Sensible shoes, or starmud on your winged heels,
Icarus or Neil Armstrong using his foot
to take a big step for humankind, walk your mile
standing up as if you were scanning for leopards,
your simian continuum at a fork in the road.
Danger is a capricious muse, but it can still
rivet you with inspiration. The hunters get eyes.
You grow an exoskeleton, then rib
the walls and rafters of the house and soon
the sun decides where the windows are going to go.
The Hox genes talk, and you're the topic of conversation.

You start listening as if
you were listening in on yourself,
all those voices and things
for words you don't understand,
bliss, butterflies, sorrows and assassins,
the victimized heroes of egoistic tragedies,
and the poetry in the pity of unexpurgated passion.
Lovers in the last throes of unmitigated catastrophe.
The rush and turmoil of the picture-music
going on all the time, shapeshifting
from one musical scene into another
and even you with your hands over your ears
sick of listening to the cosmic hiss,
climactic cymbals in the great performance
just waiting to come together like a hadron collider
deep underground where black holes in space
are born of the impact. If you're not already
too calculating, or mesmerized like a stone bird
by the snake-eyes of the dice, put some money
down on yourself as if you had one to lose,
and if for nothing more than the exercise,
kiss your prophetic skulls for luck and let them roll.

And when you love, don't approach a seabed on the moon
with a spoonful of water you can both sip from.
Return like an ocean with a convincing atmosphere.
If fools rush in where angels fear to tread
the angels will follow soon enough, with blessings
on the horns of your head. Learn
every gesture of her eyes like pictographic signage,
of her heart, a grammar for two, of her mind
be the no one to lift its veils, of her body,
apprentice yourself to the genius of her starmud.

Everything that lives is a gesture of the absurd
the imagination delights in elaborating
like people with the personalities of apple-trees
or the encyclopedic prolixity of the Burgess Shale.
I am is not the cornerstone of anything.
I imagine. And the wind is the threshold of the tent
that sheds the desolation of a self like a flower
that blooms in fire. Why water a mirage? Live large.
Squander stars on your vision of this, swallow the abyss
to keep your emptiness well fed, let your wisdom
be the private life of space, your time on earth
be passage and transformation, and your heart
cherish the bliss of all, animate and inanimate alike,
who suffer the same dream of being awake that you do.

Don’t Look Back

Don’t look back
Your eyes will fill up
Not with memories,
But with tears…
Memories are
Very painful
To recall,
But tears easily fall.

Look back

As I Look back to the past
And see not the future coming
Anticipate the dusk
And you will see it all Ending

Parallel with the flow of time
Opposing dictum! commit Crime
Seek no vengeance! End the Cycle
Witness the universe now in Idle

Feed the flame and try to tame
Stop the chill and end this game..

Don't Look Back! Don't Look Back!

the instructions are clear
like white silk on my skin

but what if i really have to
look back to pain and feel

it the way she felt it with
my own incorrigibilities

what i i really looked back
will i turn into salt like the

way Lot's wife disobeyed
the orders from heaven?

and what if i turn into salt?
do i have the sighs of the water?

Wont look back

I was always searching for you,
Night after night waiting for you.

Mistaken Identity has got the best of me...

I wont look back, I wont look back

There is no way to erase... The memories....

I wont look back, I wont look back....

Now that I found love....

I was always searching for you,
Night after night waiting for you.

Mistaken Identity has got the best of me...

I wont look back, I wont look back

Dont Look Back

Dont look back to the days of yesteryear,
You cannot live on in the past,
Dont look back.
And Ive known so many people
That still try to live on in the past,
Dont look back, oh no.
And if I could call back all those days of yesteryear,
I would never grow old and Id never be poor,
But darlin, those days are gone, oh yeah.
Stop dreaming
And live on in the future,
But darlin, dont look back, oh no,
Dont look back, oh ?

Do Not Look Back I Said

do not be afraid when he comes
you do not owe him
there are no questions
you do not take anything
there is nothing to carry
except yourself
it will be quick and so light
like a hush
do not say anything
just go
it is that easy
just go
leave everything
and do not look back
for you may find the images
buried in the sands of the
past
a picture of your youth
the sad face
the frail arms
the vehemence within
the hungry sockets
dried long deprived of the
tarry tears

Why Do People Look Back?

they look back because it is important
perhaps something so important was left

there and there is a need to take it back
to make life move on and be normal again

they look back because the past is worth
the simmer, the sound of the past must have

been so lovely to the ears, and recalling
emboldens the weak to become lion-hearted

but i am looking back for some reasons
i left a part of myself in there and here i am

bringing my body without a soul, taking an
arm without my fingers, a chest without a heart.

i must look back because she is there and she
is dying, and i still have other stories to confess, .

because there is still a need for me to be forgiven.

Dont Look Back

Sometimes I remember my life
The wheels been spinning so long
So many years have passed me by
And the feelings are still running oh so strong
Now something new is here
Im gonna fly and spread my wings
And still the power, goes, on and on
Dont look back- dont look back
Dont you ever, now or never, look back
Dont look back- dont look back
Dont you ever- never look back
Day after day, night after night
Climbing into a new day
And now I think Ive found my sight
To go on and never turn away
Now something new...
Dont look back- dont look back
Dont you ever, now or never, look back
Dont look back- dont look back
Now or never- dont you ever look back
Solo
Im gonna fly and spread my wings
Cause still the power goes on and on
Dont look back...
