You Have No Idea How Deeply I Love

I will give you the shirt off my back.
The shoes off my feet.
Even my last dollar,
I need desperately.
I am compassionate to a fault.

And I will be guilty,
That I admit.

But show me any indication,
You can treat me with continued...
Indignation.
And I will freeze up on you,
As if you have awakened for a long visit...
At the North Pole.

And I will be guilty,
That I admit.

If 'ever' you decide,
You want to test what I've got inside...
Be prepared to shiver.
Because to you will be a cold breeze,
From me I will be quick to deliver.
You have no idea how deeply I love!

And I will be guilty,
That I admit.

I have been taught,
By the best of teachers!

You Have No Idea How Grateful I Am To You

Remember when you told me,
To go fly a kite?
Did you envision it to be seen,
By so many people?
That one suggestion,
Opened for me so many doors.

What else do you see in my future?
Anything luxurious on four wheels?
Any cruises on that menu?
How about a loving relationship...
With delicious chemistry and communication?
First or last names?
I'll even take initials at this point.
Let me know, okay?

When you told me to go fly a kite?
And I did?
You have no idea how grateful I am to you.

Here...
I brought to you the string.
Hold onto it.
And the first 'vibe' you get from it...
Call me,
Immediately!

What other talents have you been keeping from me?

You don't know how to be in love

You don't know how to be in love
You don't know how to be in love
I try to kiss you
You say not today
I try to hug you
You say 'no way'

You don't know how to be in love
You don't know how to be in love
I wanna be with you
You got somethin else to do
I try to be near you
You say i'm a fool

You don't know how to be in love
You don't know how to be in love
I could say a lot
None of it would be true
You don't love me i know
The way i love you

You don't know how to be in love
You don't know how to be in love

Love, You Don't know how Much

Hugs, kisses, and tearful goodbyes
going to be many miles apart
whether long or short trips
a picture of you in a purse or wallet
a reminder how beautiful in love with you
your smile makes the heck it journey more pleasant
thinking of you brings romantic memories
from the first time we met, our wedding dance
holding hands on a walk
so far away your are, but so close in my heart
till we meet again i hear your voice by phone
so soft and sweet, it brings tears of happiness
how special you are to me
you don't know how deep in love I am with you
no distance can keep me from you
our love grows stronger by the day
wait to hold you, to love you, to be with you
you don't know how much you really mean to me
as the miles grow closer and the time ticking by
I know I will be forever in love with you.
across the way as I arrive to see your beautiful body
the smile.the tears, the movement of you lips
saying I miss you and love you so
the big tight hug, the twirling of us together
tears of love and togetherness
you don't know how much in I am in love with you

You Know How They Are?

You know how they are...
Loud and boisterous.
Disrespectful and undisciplined.
As if common sense has skipped over them.

With a gutterness despicable.
Expose to others they wish influenced.
Accepting this withoput protest.

And they believe what they do is fine.
Blinded by the show of sighs and dismay!
They have been conditioned,
Their sick behavior is okay!
But...
There is an obvious neglect that reflects.
And destroys what is desired to be left protected.
And investment of a mindset,
Gone!

You know how they are?

'Yes, I do!
But they don't see this as pitiful.
Distracting and off track!
That is the sadness of all of that! '

Because You Do Not Know How To Say Yes....

do not make a conclusion that you are wrong
or that you are inferior

you know best who you are, keep thinking,

when you were rejected
by whose standards?
and under what circumstances?
yes, theirs, and their
network of evil influences
this company incorporated
a root system of cajolery
and mediocrity

keep that dignity, do not expect, do not demand,
stay what you are, you know best who you are

your nights have been days, your craft well honed by sacrifices,
you have been an expert listener and talker to yourself
you have mastered right from wrong, you have fathomed the
code of silence, the ethics of your profession

your efforts since when must be rewarded?
ah, you started so young to be disciplined
you shy away from shallowness, embraced the loneliness of time
burning hair with your candles, whetting what is metallic and
glossing over the gold that is found in you
you are a true value, an epitome of virtue,
the ripe fruit of the grape vine,
the moon on the river.

ah, they are mud, and how can they ever like the true pearl
the nugget of gold beneath their stinking waters?

now do not blame yourself,
you are the best,
the true winner of this
game,
they all have their friends,
they are drunk with their lies and power,
they had their secret meetings and their talks
they have the strings of the marionettes in their hands
they are garbage on the cans

they will tell the truth....
you could have won
you are the best,
but you just don't know how to say yes
too all of them.

How You Ever Gonna Know?

That old wind thats whippin out there
Its whistlin your tune
That wind blew pyramids to egypt
And footprints to the moon
And that old star that youve been wishin on
Is shining mighty bright
Its a fire inside your heart
Thats gonna lead you to the light
How you ever gonna know,
Whats it like to live there?
How you ever gonna know, victory?
How you ever gonna know,
What its like when dreams become reality?
How you ever gonna know,
How it feels to hold it?
How you ever gonna know, what its like to dance?
How you ever gonna know,
If you never take the chance?
You know failure isnt failure
If a lesson from its learned
I guess love would not be love
Without a risk of being burned
Anything in life worth havin
Lord, it has its sacrifice
But the gift that youre receiving
Is worth more than the price
How you ever gonna know,
Whats it like to live there?
How you ever gonna know,
What you never know?
How you ever gonna know,
If youre down here doin
What the good lord puts you here to do?
How you ever gonna know,
If you could have done it?
How you ever gonna know, how it feels to fly?
How you ever gonna know,
If you never dare to try?
Listen not to the critics,
Who put their own dreams on the shelf
If you wanna get the truth to admit it,
Youve gotta find out for yourself
How you ever gonna know,
What its like to be there?
How you ever gonna know,
If youre the best?
How you ever gonna know,
What you believe in if you dont put it to the test?
How you ever gonna know,
How it feels to hold it?
How you ever gonna know,
Whatll never change it?
How you ever gonna know,
If you never chase the dream?
How you ever gonna know,
Your potential?
How you ever gonna know, how you ever gonna know,
Whats it like when dreams become reality?
How you ever gonna know,
How it feels to hold her?
How you ever gonna know,
What its like to dance?
How you ever gonna know,
If you never take the chance?

You Have To Let Me Grow Up

Mom I love you
Yes I know you love me to
But mom I'm a big girl now
You have to understand how
I'm going to be just fine
Mom I'm not nine
Yes its hard for you to grasp that I am older
But mom always remember
i learnd all from you
maybe somethings form dad to

I Know How You Feel

(tim hunt/josh leo/robert ellis orrall)
(track 9 - time 2:59)
Like a baby tastin ice cream for the very first time
Like the first jump from an airplane in a free fall dive
Like a roller coaster barely stickin to the track
Now that youve been in my arms there aint no turning back
I know how you feel
And Ill never be the same dont wanna be
In less than love this way
Couldnt go without your kissin cause Id know what I was missin
And nothin else will ever be this real
Baby now that I know how you feel
Its the moment when I knew that love was much more than a word
So much sweeter than the sweetest song Ive ever heard
Its the answer to the question Ive been askin all my life
And now youre tellin me your heart was made for mine
I know how you feel
And Ill never be the same dont wanna be
In less than love this way
Couldnt go without your kissin cause Id know what I was missin
And nothin else will ever be this real
Baby now that I know how you feel
I know how you feel
And Ill never be the same dont wanna be
In less than love this way
Couldnt go without your kissin cause Id know what I was missin
And nothin else could ever be this real
Baby now that I know how you feel
And Ill never be the same dont wanna be
In less than love this way
Couldnt go without your kissin cause Id know what I was missin
And nothin else could ever be this real
Baby now that I know how you feel

You Have Done It Before

You have done it before
So you have done it again
With your ways and your sin.
Too you this it is not new
So no-one really knew
Your back to where you did begin.
You are walking the same path
That you walked in your past
That we thought you walked no more.
But then you went down that road
Which is full of shame and woe
You have returned to where you were before.
Again you are lying and abusing
Cheating and accusing
And example for all to see.
You’re letting everyone know
That truly you have no soul
Or a conscience for you to heed.

You have done it before
So your doing it still
How weak is your pride and will.
You have surrender to your old way
What else could anyone say
As you run down a sadden hill.
As everyone does know
That when we all grow old
We will change with wisdom of age.
But you will not change at all
You couldn't stand that one fall
As you don't ever want to enter that stage.
I wonder is everyone ashamed
Like i am, when I hear your name
Knowing you had returned to your past life.
Where you don't care who you hurt
Especially your family which is your perk
As your bring sorrow and so much strife.

You have done it before
And you are doing it now
You are undisciplined like a child.
You must have your own way
And you don't care what anyone does say
As you scream “ am me”, out loud.
I wonder when you commit your sins
Once before and now again
Do you notice who is around or even near.
Do you care where you are
Knowing temptation from you is never far
And away from it, you never do steer.
Do you think of anyone but yourself
As pain and suffering is what you give as help
And the knocking you do at a sinners door.
Do you want your children to be like you
And when they are, it will only prove
That you have done all this, once before.

You'll Never Know

you'll never know how much I truly care
not even with me standing there
you're there one second
gone the next
half way down the hall
leaving me full of despair 
my life was complete
until you walked out of it
I was happy as could be
but then you left me
I want you to know that 
I truly care but you've never taken time to see
see me standing there
looking at you
loving you
I never wanted you to go
but now I don't see how
I can go another day without you
the love of my life
goodbye my love.

When You Have Done Your Best

when you have done your best
and they all begin to like
your art
your ways and what you want to become
when they also want to become like you
when you tell them now where to go
and what to do
when they are now at home with themselves
in their own chosen climates and houses
when they have understood their fears
and learned to live with their longings
when they have learned the power
of laughter
when they have learned to dream
when they have learned
how to talk to a tree,

it is time for you to go
you have freed them all from their shackles
you have taught them how to fish

it is time for you to go
your presence has become useless
it is now time to go
human reconstructor.

Everything You Have

In a world of sad faces,
you will often find one with a smile
and you wonder why they are smiling
when you know they do not have a lot.
Therefore, you ask them
why they wear a smile
when you have less than I do.
They turn and say,
I have little food,
but I am willing to share it
with everyone who has none.
I have a roof over my head,
there are many who have not.
I am at peace with myself,
not many can say that.
I may not have many friends
I can readily rely on,
but they all know I am
there to always be called upon.
I am living, breathing God’s good air.
What more do I need?
Therefore, I smile for everything I have,
for there are a lot worse off than me.
The real secret is you see,
be at peace with yourself
and enjoy everything you have.

To A Friend Who Says That She Does Not Know How To Write A Poem Anymore

it is sad, when you think that you do not know
how to write a poem anymore
a simple poem as simple as you
what does it take for humanity to write one poem?
does it take that much from those who claim they know the way?
shall blood be shed to drive another point?

do not lose hope in the power of our ordinary words,
for as long as we quiver, poems are written
for as long as we lose the consciousness about our beings
the metaphors always come and build upon themselves their own meanings

take your time, breathe the air of poetry, and let the molecules
enter your lungs that long to see the light of the sun,
just be patient, keep on waiting, savor the silence, shower yourself
with the light of the moon, on another lonely night,
sleep soundly, and listen to the sound of your snores,
in your dreams, the poems write themselves.

A life you'll never know

This is one life you'll never know.
The life of rape and abuse.
The life of a victim.
The life of feeling alone.
The life of being scared.

I was raped and abused.
It was alife I didn't ask for.
And one I wish I never knew.
But this life has stuck to me like glue.

I never wanted that life but I got it.
I now live the aftermath.
Flashbacks are a daily occurance.
Hearing and seeing things.
You helped to make me selfharm.
You made me suicidal.
I hate you.

This is the life you'll never know.
Becuase once you'd finished with me.
You left me to pick up the pieces.
And I hate you all the more.

Rage and anger fills my heart.
Destroy me you have.
I never asked for this life.
And I never asked to meet you.

I hate the life of the victim.
But as hard as I try.
I still am the victim.
The flashbacks and voices.
The nightmares and fears.
Make sure I am

Mom, You Didn't Know

Mom you didn't know
How hard it was for me to take this journey
Mom you didn't know it was a hard time in school
the fear of getting bullied,
the shame when I can't answer our teacher
the feeling of being isolated, alone, neglected
Mom you haven't knew that, you didn't know how i feel
But I couldn't just tell you
I know you had a lot of things to think of
I don't want to be an added burden to you
I love you Mom,
I hope you were there at those times
But its all okay Mom
It turned up to be okay
After all, there's God all the time
This is the best thing you did in my life
to make me know God
to let me grow in Him
I am stronger now, but not of my strength but of His
Everything was His arrangement
He probably had allowed you not to be with me most of the time that I may learn to trust on Him.
Mom it's okay you didn't know because now,
I'm trusting HIM.

I Know How The River Feels

(steven dale jones/amy powers)
(track 9 - time 3:40)
They say for everyone, theres that certain one
Out there, somewhere
Id been looking hard, searching every heart
Getting nowhere
Didnt know I was making my way to you
Now I know how the river feels
When it reaches the sea
And finally finds the place
It was always meant to be
Holding fast, home at last
Knowing the journeys through
Lying here with you
I know how the river feels
Miles of loneliness, now make perfect sense
Here beside you
Tears like water fall, it was worth it all
Just to find you
And yours are the last arms Ill run to
Now I know how the river feels
When it reaches the sea
And finally finds the place
It was always meant to be
Holding fast, home at last
Knowing the journeys through
Lying here with you
I know how the river feels
Holding fast, home at last
Knowing the journeys through
Lying here with you
I know how the river feels
Oh, I know how the river feels

You Have No Idea

You have no idea how much I love you
What I would do for your natural touch
And you have no idea just how I'd hold you
When I am woken from a dream, something bad had happened to us
But I would talk my mouth off
If I thought, oh yes, baby
It would glue you forever to me
And I've worn out my pride
And I've torn at the sky
And I've beaten at the devil
With one heathenist sigh
And I'd never let anyone harm you while I'm alive
I'd never let anyone harm you while I'm alive
You have no idea how much it moves me
Just staring deeply into your green eyes
And you have no idea just how completely I adore you
You would be so surprised
But I would talk my mouth off
If I thought, oh yes, baby
It would glue you forever to me
And I've worn out my pride
And I've torn at the sky
And I've beaten at the devil
With one heathenist sigh
And I'd never let anyone harm you while I'm alive
I'd never let anyone harm you while I'm alive
I'd never let anyone harm you while I'm alive
