my Brother Was The Only One

I remember one late afternoon memory
Through the gate
the sound of my steps after me

Under a warm shade
where all her children had gather
had come and gone
My brother was the only one

I remember the loose wood
from that uncertain gate
Out of character the handle being firm
yet the context of frame
being old and bent
Somebody teach me where he went

I remember under the shadows
by his dreams
Many moments he must have saved
cautiously filling his regrets
a place call home
he can't forget

My brother they say
loves the beauty from eyes
the son of his own
He gathers to capture fragrance
of a little girl he's known
That's my girl! come-on... hon
My brother was the only one

He sits in my thoughts
alone under that dormant grey tree
His eyes captivated as if time stands still
His eyes filled with passive glare
But yet
life no longer his care
My brother was the only one
That time and chance never another
Did words did I cover
that didn't say, dearly brother
I Love You

The Small Poem Is The Only Poem I Have

THE SMALL POEM IS THE ONLY POEM I HAVE


The small poem is the only poem I have
I cannot build great structures -
One ironic thought at a time
In imperfect off-rhyme
A question and an answer-
Ambiguous
The best I can’t do
Is what I can give.

Love was only waste of time

Love was like a nonsense rhyme
Love was only waste of time
Now I don't believe in love anymore
As if I can't dance so I blame the floor
But I tried my level best
To love you more than the rest
So I deeply expect love in return
But you have hurt me and let my heart burn!

The Only Debate I Wish To Have With My Neighbor

The only debate I wish to have with my neighbor,
Is over two million dollars I gave to them.
Oppose to the one million I had promised,
But made a decision I could afford to give them more.
And they insisted my gift was far too generous.
That would be the only debate,
I'd consider not a waste of my time...
'With' something received that is beneficial.

Please Play This Song On The Radio

We wrote this song, its not too short, not too long
Its got back-up vocs in just the right places
Its got a few oohs and ahhs
It takes a little pause
Just before the second chorus
Please play this song on the radio
Almost every line is sung on time
Almost every verse ends in a rhyme
The only problem we had was writing enough words
But thats okay, because the chorus is
Coming up again now
Please play this song on the radio
Please play this song on the radio

Fate; not the only thing to depend upon

All we have some desires
Some wishes and ambitions of our own
But when it cannot be achieved
We say, we are unlucky
But fate is not the only thing to depend upon
So why it is said 'Man is the Architect of his own fate? '
Surely there should be no doubt about it
Need to keep faith and increase our confidence level
Need hard effort and labor
As 'Industry is the key to success'
So man can achieve his desires
By not depending on fate
But by trying and working hard all time.

I'm Not The Only One

What if I could say to you
Of what you wanted
Would not do
What if I could say
Say to you
Of what you wanted
Of what you could do
Huh
Huh
Huh
Huh
What you want
Is something you need
And what you've wanted
Is something I bleed
Could you say to me you love me
And I'm the only one
Could you say to me you love me
That I'm your man
Huh
Huh
Huh
Huh

[Chorus:]
Is this that last time I'll ever see you
Is this the last time I'll ever meet you
Is this the last I'll ever make love to you

The Only Way To Do It With All Respect Is To Leave....

all these rusty things,

door knobs, and keys
spoons and
tin plates

gates of iron and
lamp posts

the stove that mother
used

the knife that father kept

rust that smells
failures

and falling and
hitting

the bottom of the truth
the one that sinks
and settles

making you see all those passing
moments


rusting relationships
sour or salty feelings

you jerk
for the first time but you cannot just jerk and jerk forever

no one must tremble permanently
one relaxes

and the only way to do it with
full respect is just to leave.

The Only Way

(d. pickerill/p. odonoughue)
I wake up at five
Wonder why Im alive
Crawl out bed (good morning)
Leaving the paper unread
Dont think I can take much more
Traffic makes me late
Ive got not time to waste
Chasing the time
Im about to lose my mind
A touch of monday morning blues
Chorus:
I think to myself
Is this the only way
Is this the only way
I think to myself
Is this the only way
Is this the only way
Heading for home
Cold light to see the room
Where Im all alone
I hear the voices say
Get out before its too late
Chorus
Chorus
The only way

The Only Export From One Age To The Other

the only export you can do
from one age to the other
from this world to the next
without getting any less an acquirer
is - a religion

the only all time export
the world has ever sold
with all its soul, blood and sweat
to another age is - a religon

the only export
from one age to the other
one would kill - with heart, mind and soul -
to prove what one has bought
is the real thing is - a religion

the only intangible commodity
yet powerful enough
to blow up the whole world
is - a religion

the only export
from one age to the other
wrapped in so much sweetness
tasted with as much bitterness
here and (beyond, if you have bought one)
is without doubt - religion

The Only Ones

Can you feel me, I'm so close I'm sure
Anytime if you would call be right to your door
Is it over, lost this time for good
I never knew that I could be so misunderstood
* We are the only ones, left alone with this heart of stone
We are the only ones with nothin' left but fools alone
Life's so empty, there's nothin' left for me
Oh I wish you were back, baby you and me
Last September, it's like yesterday
You slipped through my hands, there's nothing more to say
* Repeat
I can feel the magic in your heart tonight
I thought we had something oh so right
Baby tell me do you still care
'Cause this ain't no game of kiss and dare
[INSTRUMENTAL]
* Repeat twice then go into the instrumental fade out

The Only Gift

Say not a word, if it be not truth, in whole;
Have not a thought, should you you not this, extol:
That, above all, truth be of paramount importance,
And should never be subjugated to any indulgence
Of selfish endeavor, for even a time, brief-
As same shall surely cause another, grief;
Deceit begets more of same, as a spiral
And causes pain as any form of viral
Cancer may-and it is as real as they may be-
Though, the effects perhaps, only the afflicted may see!
Justice means truth, so deceit is akin to iniquity;
Truth is His Way, and fallacy is not-this simplicity
Is the only rule by which any need, live
A righteous life-the only gift He expects you to give!

-Maurice Harris,11 march 2012

The Only Living Boy In Brum

Taking the train back homeward bound,
A poet with a suitcase in hand.
The people walk into me like I were a ghost,
They just can’t see beyond where they want to go,
Looks like I’m the only living boy in Brum.

Break a tenner into change-
Enough to carry me home.
I sit on the bus as it goes through the city,
See all the places I used to go,
They only hold memories for the only living boy in Brum.

Selfridges looms like a tower of golf balls.
Somebody climbed it once,
I saw the pictures on local TV,
But I watch a different channel now.
The only living boy in Brum.

There was a time,
That this place was the world to me,
But I have moved on
And it does not welcome back the only living boy in Brum.

Im Not The Only One

What if I could say to you
Of what you wanted
Would not do
What if I could say
Say to you
Of what you wanted
Of what you could do
Huh huh huh huh

And what youve wanted
Is something I bleed
Could you say to me you love me
And Im the only one
Could you say to me you love me
That Im your man
Huh huh huh huh
Chorus:
Is this the last time Ill ever see you
Is this the last time Ill ever meet you
Is this the last Ill ever make love to you

You're the Only One for Me

vs.1 The first time I saw you,
I didn't know what to do.
Then, I saw the way you looked at me,
And when I came over there, I knew, that,
(Chorus)
The only one,
You're the only one for me.
The only one,
I can rely on, can't you see?
Don't let me lose you,
Do the best that you can do,
'Cause as you see,
You're the only one for me.
vs.2 Out of all the guys there are,
Some are near, and some far.
Haven't you noticed you're one in a million,
And now, I'm fallin' hard, for the fact that,
(Chorus)
(instrumental)
Bridge: I don't think things
Will ever be the same,
But I don't want any of these
Feelings to change,
'Cause no one else can
Make me feel this way!
(Chorus) x 2
Yes, the only one.
Only one.

My Childhood World Was Once The Only World

My childhood world was once the only world
Years later when it exists only in my memory
It has become one of many worlds the Jewish people have known
In their long journey-

Its idiom and characters its look and its feel
Its small dreams and distinct languages
Are gone-

All I thought once the whole of the real world
Is only a small part of what has gone on far longer than it
And all these worlds together too
Are not the whole of the universe –

Yet my memory of this world makes it larger and larger
And for me still it is in the center of space and time

One day soon when I am gone
No one will know it as I have-
Some traces of it will remain in the minds of other witnesses
And when they are gone
This world too will have only a remnant of it
Remaining as words.

The Only Person Who

The problem with an open book, is it can't know
How it feels, what it says, who it is.... only show
The problem with an open book is its fraught with confusion yet no answer
With danger yet no protection
How can i run from her?
When she's written all over me like an inscription
Open books don't have a say
Open books won't last more than a day
If left open, they cannot defend or close
Can't run away, no toes
Even if it's all an illusion
This delusion
This me, I'm the open book because I'm the the only
One who can't read me
The only one who doesn't know how I feel
So please tell me because I get hurt, but no one heals
I feel this way or that
But to me I don't know what is fact
What is dreamed and what is real
The only person who doesn't know me is me
Someone close it or kill it so then no one can see

The Only One

Well I made up my mind
Not gonna let you get away
To think that I'm the lucky guy
I've almost got it made

Cause it's been so long
Since I've felt so strong
About anyone at all
I get so excited
I ain't gonna fight it
I think I might be fallin' in love

So come on - let's get it right
Cause you're the only one
So come on - we ain't got all night
Cause you're the only one

Last night
I thought you mighta stayed
If I'd a' had the guts
I woulda pushed my luck
But then you mighta turned away

How do I explain
I know it sounds insane
But then I've been through this before
In just a matter of time
You could change your mind
You could turn and walk right hrough that door

So come on - let's get it straight
Cause you're the only one
So come on - I just can't wait
Cause you're the only one

Love's the Only Thing Worth Dying for

Love's the only thing worth dying for, bleeding for:
From out of the whole world's total comings and goings,
The only commerce can absolve finally the emptiness
All the saints knew this: that to truly live abundantly
One must give oneself over to that slow, flameless burn
Renew the undying heart of love; encompassing holocaust
Then the purified heart becomes a hidden sun
With the fearful power suns contain, secretly within
Which the eternal mind of creation can combust;
Exhaust, the continuous machination of it's universes
Whose very cores ignite, when that unmanifest potential;
Of Love becomes too great, too strong to bear
To be resisted for one more instant out of time
The force borne toward and away from love, unbalanced
Creation's exigency bursts forth into being, out of fullness,
From a single dying exhalation of breath, either side of the fulcrum
Lit by the single fuse of one who once died, blossoming into love.

The Only One

Ive hidden in the silence
Then I took it far away
I was living in the distance
In the corners of my day
You came into my life
And centered all my fears
Loving you is everything
The meaning to these years
Partners in time
Partners today
Walking through problems
That might have come out way
Cause when all is said and done
Theres no need for me to run
Youre the only one
The only one I love
We turned over the pages
And saw the pictures there
The color might be fading
But I can see it clear
You walked into my life
And balanced every word
Loving you is everything
Everything Ive heard
Partners in time
Partners today
Walking through problems
That might have come our way
Cause when all is said and done
Youre the only one I love
Youre the only one the only one I love
Once I had a reason
To run and hide from you
Hiding in the silence
Was all I ever used to do
But now I know the feeling
Must be al about believing
Youre the only one
The only one I love.
