Love The World Away

Every now and then
When the world steps in
Stealing all our time away
It soon takes so much
We forget to touch
Thats when I know
Its time for me to say
Take my hand
Lets walk through loves door
And be free from the world once more
Cares my heart
We can hide today
And love the world away
Once again well be
Where our hearts are free
And the time is ours to share
Love will always stay
Just a touch away
Come with me
All the magics waiting there
Take my hand
Lets walk through loves door
And be free from the world once more
Cares my heart
We can hide today
And love the world away
We can love the world away

I Love The World The Way A Mother Loves A Dead Child

I love the world the way a mother loves a dead child
and sees its ghost everywhere.
I look at the stars and more and more
I see the disappointment in their eyes.
We waste each other like clear cut forests.
In the sacred groves where the priests
are the birds of death, you're either
a chainsaw or a nail protesting a passion play.
Ever since the last lyric died an agonizing death
poems have become gadgets
in the hands of inventors without fingerprints.
No growth rings in the heartwood of a dead tree.
Tone-deaf door-knockers who write poetry
as a kind of white noise to drown out
the shrieking of the innocent in their crawl spaces.

Chronic renewal of one-eyed overviews.
Most people's lives are just big enough lies
they've told themselves often enough
to believe there may be something to it.
Wounded earth, I weep for you like a slayer
weeps for the slain. You were not my mother.
You were my child. Nemetic humanity
raises its own assassin in paranoid despair.

Measure of the mighty in the power of a dam,
how easy it is to forget the omnipotence
of a dropp of rain. It's still possible to open
cosmic gates of the aviaries and let
all the winged horses fly free and riderless
like the silk paratroopers of the milk weed pods
or the albino umbrellas of smouldering dandelions.
But for the most part
beauty and truth lost heart long ago
and were turned out like fashionistas
on the celebrity catwalks of surrealistic irreverence
and now the peony is wearing the thorns of the rose.

I still go out at night far from town by myself
to amuse the stars with my humanity,
the dents in my shining, the legends of light
I turned into black farces of self-righteous fallibility
as if I had acquired the power to reverse
a diamond back into coal. The mourning dove
studies the occult magic of the crow
and the sacred clowns look for enlightenment
in their shame, in the irrelevant antics
of the painted tears that fall from their eyes
whenever they address themselves
like mirrors in a green room putting their make-up on.

Been in the tide of this night sea of awareness
so long now, I've developed a tendency
to round the sharp corners of the crucials
out into more spherically embrasive wavelengths,
kinder pieces of sand-blasted glass
to insulate myself exponentially from the details
as if a full moon were some kind of antidote
to its own fangs and the harvest wasn't toxic.
But I know I'm only trying to divine my way
by white lightning on the moon illuminating a road
as wide as everywhere. And my childhood rage
is stilling tearing down gates and fences
around open fields where the wildflowers bloom
without starmaps, and the bounty of the earth
isn't a menu that determines your place in the foodchain.

Poetry's been the longest good night I've ever experienced
and life the deepest, most gracious bow
to all the people, events, and things I've ever cherished.
Not too hard to see the lowest common denominator
of all values has become a quantum mechanical lottery
and physics is just a screening myth
for what gets murdered along the way to the promised land.
Enculturated to our own pollution like fish,
though we swim out as far as the spring equinox in Pisces
to pour the universe out of the universe,
worlds waterclocking into worlds, still
after washing ourselves off in stars like water and sand
seeping into our graves like the mirage of an oil spill,
we're still recognized immediately among the worlds
by the indelibility of our filth, having yet to learn
not to track our identity in after us into the house of life.

The ululation of the loons wailing like Arab widows
reverberating across the lake sounds more
like an angry plea, than a call to prayer,
but who could lament the immensity
of that kind of tragic absence in a single lifetime
without emptying their spirits out like dry wells in a desert
that navigates like a madman by the full moon?
When I was young, I opened up a night school
to explain what a human was to the stars,
but now my soul's a lot more illiterate than it was
and it's me that's asking them to teach me to read.


Even if you look at it like a leather boot
that's walked down one too many roads
not to feel the pebble of the world bruise its heel,
even though we've made a great mess of it,
it's still a great mystery, yes? Give your assent
without hesitation, or the moon will know you're lying.
The mysterium tremendum et fascinans of the Romans.
The bright vacancy in the dark abundance
of the ore of our unknowing. Even the hardest heart
bleeds like iron out of the sacred rock
transformed in the forges of the fireflies of mystic insight
into a sword of moonlight worthy of being
laid down upon the waters of life in tribute.
Even if you had to fall upon it more than once
to get the point before you returned it in gratitude.

Deepest Love The World Has Known

i've searched the fields the world over
searching for that four leaf clover.
thinking that this could fill my life
of the voids within my heart.
but the biggest void was from you
from the start.

a four leaf clover could never replace
when i fell from your grace.
i have learned from my sins.
and i'm hoping that i could get back in.

back into that beautiful heart
where i could make a brand new start
in your love i was like a fish in the sea
because your beauty 'totally surrounded me'.

in every direction that i swam.
i could always see, that your deep love
became a part of me.
my love has reached the bottom of the ocean floor
rose up and touched every shore.

i have swam the world over, and
never looking over my shoulder.
for my love is deeper and wider than the ocean itself.

it will reach heaven and it will touch hell
and if you were to see it, you could surely tell.

the deepest love the world has known
is the love, that i have shown.
not the height of the universe
or the depth of the ocean
could compare to my infinite love and devotion.

now! you ask me for who can this love be.

IT IS FOR CHRIST, FOR HE HAS SET ME FREE.

Watching The World Go Past

I sit on the front step
Just watching the world go past
People walking
People talking

I see people running from themselves
People walking their best friends
Children playing with others hearts
Teenage girls crying over the past

I just and watch the sun set
Signalling that a new day will begin soon
I watch the rising of the moon
And the dots getting ever so brighter

Watch people fall in love
People smile as if nothings wrong
I watch all the people who have nothing to do
Watching people who have nothing to loose

I sit and watch the different lives form
Watching the new scene starting
The new lives beginning with a smile
The lives coming to and end

I sit on the front step
Just watching the world go past
People walking
People talking

I Wanna Tell The World

Michael w. smith / mark heimermann / toby mckeehan
I saw you
And you saw me
And I didnt even know your name
Just one look
That was all it took
And I knew Id never be the same
If walkin on air compares to what I feel
Then how can I keep it sealed when...
Chorus:
I wanna tell the world
If the smile on my face
Hasnt given me away already
I wanna tell the world
There aint no way to hide it
Your love has got me flyin high
Since the day
That you looked my way
I knew we were meant to be together
Now I thank the lord
For a love like yours
cause I know its gonna last forever
Its hard to believe my dreams have all come true
And Im so inlove with you that...
Chorus
Bridge:
I just want the world to know
Love has got me good to go
[i wanna tell the world, I wanna tell the world]
I have got to get it out
She is all I think about
[i wanna tell the world, I wanna tell the world]
Its something that I need to say
Love has overtaken me
Chorus

Love The Way

Oh, her eyes, her eyes make the stars look
like they're not shinin'
Her hair, her hair falls perfectly without her
tryin'
She's so beautiful
And I tell her everyday
Yeah, I know, I know when I compliment
her, she won't believe me
And it's so, it's so sad to think that she
don't see what I see
But every time she asks me do I look okay?
I say
When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
'Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile
The whole world stops and stares for
awhile
'Cause girl, you're amazing
Just love the way you are
She's so beautiful
And I tell her everyday
Oh, you know, you know, you know I'd
never ask you to change
If perfect's what you're searching for, then
just stay the same
So don't even bother asking if you look
okay
You know I'll say
When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
'Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile
The whole world stops and stares for
awhile
'Cause girl, you're amazing
Just the way you are
The way you are
The way you are
Girl, you're amazing
Just the way you are
When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
'Cause you're amazing girl
love the way you are

Wanna Make A Change In The World

This is something.
Something I've wanted to do,
for such a long time.

I wanna make a change.
A change in the world.
Through the words of my poetry.

Just knowing that I could,
make a change in the world,
in a person life,
would just mean the world to me.

It's something I've always wanted to do.
Something I need to do.
I will not give up.

For I wanna make a change.
A change in this world.

I Love The Ocean

A magic potion
Stirred up by God.
The restless waves above
The best he saves for love
In blue moonbeams.
Below, Aladdins caves.
Great ships
Sleeping in their graves.
While unknown colours
Strangely gleam
Like in a mariners wildest dream.
The smell of the spray
On lonely shore.
Where, together we lay
Locked in the aftermath
To adore
A heaven in rhythm
With our sweet motion.
And as we kiss in the surf
Oh, I just love
The ocean.

Love This World

I love the world at its doorstep
Once more.
My death will abolish the fervour
At the heart.
My continuance is like loyalty
For the common people.
May death excite a person enough
To affect us daily.
May lice on the head beckon more
To hit hard on the brain.
We can not retain this clarity
Or this hygiene, once more.
My love on this planet needs help
For the cleaning.
It is the bug of reality that may be loved
But not loved.
Let more enter this world with cleanliness
And nobody is exempt.
The living of health is in piety
And you rule as rulers.

Love Can Change The World

Love has no definition.
There is no explanation or reason.
It's just an opinion.
One opinion may not change the world,
But it can change one person.
Sometimes when one person has an opinion
Others listen
And many are influenced by that one person.
One opinion can't change the world.
But one person-one man DID.
With love Jesus gave himself
For humanity's shortcomings.
The world felt the power of one person.
Love CAN change the world
If we let it.

The World of Love

The world of love is waiting
For you and I to share
The world of love is waiting
Just tell me that you care

The world of love is waiting
For two people to move in
The world of love is asking
Where have you and I been

The world of love is hoping
That we’ll give it a try
The world of love has a place
For you and I to occupy

The world of love is shining
Because now we are a part
The world of love is living
Inside both of our hearts

So Little Love In The World

One rainy afternoon at Union Station
As I sat alone and waited on my train
I overheard a lovers conversation
Laced with desperation and pain.
I heard a girl say when is your train leavin
The schedules blurry, somethings in my eyes
I heard a boy say Ill just board it early
With a voice some lone drown out goodbye.
I thought theres so little love in the world
Theres so little love in the world
With all of those millions of lonely boys and girls
Why is there so little love in the world.
I saw them walk together thro the station
I saw the girl walk back alone her head held down
Her tremblin lips the only indication
Of her losin struggle not to cry...

All The Love In The World

Watching all the insects march along
Seem to know just right where they belong
Smears a face reflecting in the chrome
Hiding in the crowd, I'm all alone
No one's heard a single word I've said
They don't sound as good outside my head
It looks as though the past is here to stay
I've become a million miles aw-
Why do you get all the love in the world?
Why do you get all the love in the world?
All the jagged edges disappear
Colors all are brighter when you're near
The stars are all afire in the sky
Sometimes I get so lonely, I could
Why do you get all the love in the world?
Why do you get all the love in the world?
Why do you get all the love in the world?
Why do you get all the love in the world?
Why do you get all the love in the world?
Why do you get all the love in the world?
Why do you get all the love in the world?
Why do you get all the love in the world?
[repeat]

Not Enough Love In The World

Sometimes I wonder where it is loves goes
I dont know if even heaven knows
But I know we had dreams
That didnt quite come true
And now Im not the one,
Little boy, whos keeping you
Chorus:
I was either standing in your shadow
Or blocking your light
Though I kept on trying
I could not make it right
For this girl
Theres not enough love in the world
I know people hurt you so bad
They dont know the damage
They can do, and it makes me so sad
How we knock each other down
Just like children on a playground
Even after that o sun went down
Chorus
Oh darling this is still a shady little town
And sometimes its so hard to smile
For the world, for the camera
And still you have something left
You dont have to prove nothing to nobody
Just take good care of yourself
Im not easy to live with
I know that its true
Youre no picnic either, baby
And thats one of the things
I loved about you
But a time will come around
When we need to settle down
Got to get off this merry-go-round
Chorus

All The Love In The World

I can't believe the things that happen to me
I guess that I should have seen a long, long time ago
Letters you write don't help me get through the night
So, I'll just turn out the light
and sleep here all alone
All the love, all the love in the world
all the love, I'll be sending you girl
All the love
All the love in the world
Time after time I put my life on the line
But I ain't committed no crime, so take what you can find
Forget what i say cos I'll keep running away
I only live for today, but I'm one day behind
All the love, all the love in the world
all the love, I'll be sending you girl
All the love
All the love in the world
These are the words that I whisper on every first night,
but that day you left me,
those words were on that same flight
I can't believe the things that happen to me
I guess that I should have seen a long, long time ago
Letters you write don't help me get through the night
So, I'll just turn out the light
and sleep here all alone
All the love, all the love in the world
All the love, I'll be sending you girl
All the love, all the love in the world
All the love, all the love in the world

Not Enough Love In The World

Sometimes I wonder where it is love goes
I dont know if even heaven knows
But I know you had some dreams that didnt
Quite come true
And now Im not the one, little girl, whos
Keeping you
I was either standing in your shadow or
Blocking your light
Though I kept on trying I could not make
It right
For you girl-
Theres just not enough love in the world
I know people hurt you so bad
They dont know the damage they can do,
And it makes me so sad-
How we knock each other down just like
Children on a playground
Even after that ol sun went down-
I was either standing in your shadow or
Or blocking your light
Though I kept on trying I could not
Make it right
For you girl-
Theres just not enough love in the world
Oh darlin, this is still a shady little town
And sometimes its so hard to smile-
For the world, for the camera-
And still have something left
You dont have to prove nothin to nobody
Just take good care of yourself
Im not easy to live with-
I know that its true
Youre no picnic either, babe
And thats one of the things I loved about you
But a time will come around when we need to settle down
Got to get of this merry-go-round
I was either standing in your shadow or
Blocking youre light
Though I kept on trying I could not make
It right
For you girl-
Theres just not enough love in the world

Sharing the world love

Sharing the world love is what we all need to do
This is why I am writing this poem from me to you
There are some people in the world waiting for it to appear
The drunken man needs it rather than being intoxicated with beer

Now let’s talk about some places of the world starting with France
When I went to France I once met a man called lance
I now it sounds stupid how it wouldn’t happen but bear with me
Now let me tell you but lance was blind so we all know he could see

And because of that people said that lance would never love
And that finding someone who could love him would be tough
But I went out about Paris with him spreading the word of his personality
And by the end of the week he found someone despite his disability

Now I think I’ll move on to when I went to Italy and to the capital Rome
Back to the capital of Christianity and where the pope sits on his throne
Where I found a young hopeless catholic by the name of Paul Dove
Who like the others I will tell you of, had a lot of trouble with love

He’d had relationships before but not like his last
He’d loved her and proposed but she rejected him and left him very fast
He felt like his life had just collapsed around him that he had nothing left
But onwards he just managed to keep to going and the rest of his life he kept

But it was to much in the end the went to a high spot to end it
And whilst he was there he was shocked to see at the corner of the building where I sit
I said do you really want to jump off her and so we sat and talked
I don’t know where he is know but I know away from a messy end he walked

And then in my travels I decided id travel to Barcelona
Once again by myself still as a loner
I straight away headed to the beach and whilst I was there I saw trouble
There was a woman drowning losing oxygen almost on her last bubble

Automatically I swam out to save her a bring her back to shore
And when id dived to save her a brought her back up she looked in awe
She looked at me and said I didn’t know there where men like you left
And those are the first words I heard when we met

And she said let me reward you properly when we get back to shore
Little did I know she was a 20 euro whore
She got out of the ocean took me back to the house and stripped to the nude
But I couldn’t do it so I left with the words im not in the mood
And that’s when my journey brought me back home to my England
Where the people are happy whilst the men drink and the youth make a new band
And this is where I felt different as if there was something her for me that Ive now found
And there she was straight in my face and she was speaking her mind rather loud

And I stopped I watched waiting to speak with her
And at the end of the day she stopped faced me and said can I help you good sir
And I replied yes what where you doing just then
And she replied my lord give a brain to these simple men

She said to me Ive been spreading the word of a man who’s helped many in other lands
And I replied who is this man let the information swap hands
And she replied all I know of his name is Daniel Laurence
And his quest for helping people has an amazing endurance

I replied with a smile I my dear am Daniel Laurence
And my quest is the one with the incredible endurance
She was awed in amazement she claimed I love what you’re doing it’s amazing
And she smiled at me with her smile dazzling

And so we talk for the rest of the night
The way we looked at each other was an extraordinary sight
And now where together in a people helping partnership
But also I found her so wonderful were now in a relationship

This shows that even the one helping can’t help them selves
But will always need someone else to help ring there bells
And I just hope that you can follow this story of selflessness
And then help others rather than just helping your selves

The world will never understand

The world will never understand our love
So we'll not judge it by their measures.
We'll just accept it as a gift
And guard it as our treasure.

I have been fighting with a worldly view.
Now let me heal those wounds
I've inflicted on you.
Keep me mindful of our origin of truth.

I Love God/For The Beauty Of The World

I love God
For the Beauty of the world-
For the people I care for in my life-
For so much Blessing -

But what of the the hole in the ground?
The distant cold at the end of everything?
The injustices the evils
They are God's too-

I love God for the blessings
But what of the evils?
