The Promise Of Surprise (Revised)

The weather in my heart is a sunless,
cold, cloudy day, I fill up the emotional
chasm with dates and nuts, how can I
do French revision when the sun cannot
break through to say hello

So people like me who have prescribed books
still in bookcases instead of the new money
races created by brilliant young writers like
him has this author's revulsion for us
audibly expressed

Wonder why he must hate so much, sighing
I see life as a spiral ascending but I've no
dream for myself, embedded in my own
tininess, used to love thinking of dramatic
dénouements, people in dispute

One cathartic explosion - all enriched with
new insight, listening to music while typing
- music the theme threading scenes of my
life in one - wherever I go it is music
that makes me feel at home

A voice singing stories to accompaniment
- suddenly the scenario is changed - I am
just returned from riding my son's new
bike for the first time, feeling as if I am
twelve years old again

Brilliant sunlight appeared with bright
white clouds against a clear blue sky while
the wind made me feel at home as I sped
along - that delight will enable me to finish
French revision -

Music playing softly in the background
at low volume for more enticing sound
rejoicing because life still holds
the promise of surprise…

A Dream Of Romantic Love!

Romantic love inspires potential interest to live in the world;
Enjoyment of love churns out joy and pleasure in long life
And the dream of romantic love never ceases desire to demise
Despite the burden to work hard to stabilise life in the world!

Spell of romance makes one forget the sense of anything -
Sense of taste, sight, smell, hearing and touch common for all!
Nothing is known happening around except the object of love
And even day and night are forgotten during such pursuits deep!

All seem surmountable as in the adventures of Don Quixote;
What a dream world of romantic love romance immerses in!
Summer or Winter, or Autumn or Spring everything is one
To the eyes, mind and spirit when the heart is full of love ever!

A dream of romantic love makes everything easy as in paradise
Or in heaven where only enjoyment of variety is thought forever!

Cold Summers Day

(a. bell / v. clarke)
(woah, woah)
Dont know what youve got til its gone.
A hint of the scents, then its gone.
Look at the state of you,
Youre all fingers & thumbs. (youre all fingers & thumbs)
So whos your latest flame?
Driving em wild in the fast lane.
Wont say I told you so,
But the boy has no shame. (shame, no shame)
And Im putting the brave face on.
Makes me look totally kind,
The higher the head, the closer you are to heaven.
Gone and blown it all.
How can you say: it doesnt matter much to me.?
A dumb mistake, to much to pay.
A shattered heart in loves debris.
Gone and blown it all.
How can you say: it doesnt matter much to me.?
A dumb mistake, to much to pay.
A shattered heart in loves debris.
Dont know what youve got til its gone.
The thrill of the chase, then its gone.
Only the hurt to prove that it ever went on.
And life is wonderful thing,
When youre humming the words to a love song.
Do what you wanna do, live without the within. (without)
When Im in your arms Im strong.
And were travelling at light speed,
We shine for liberty, life,
And the pursuit of pleasure.
Gone and blown it all.
How can you say: it doesnt matter much to me.?
A dumb mistake, to much to pay.
A shattered heart in loves debris.
Gone and blown it all.
How can you say: it doesnt matter much to me.?
A dumb mistake, to much to pay.
A shattered heart in loves debris.
(woah, woah, ooh...)
(woah, woah, ooh...)
Here I do walk,
Fast from angst of loss.
On a cold summers day. (summers day...woah)
On a cold summers day. (summers day...ooh)
Fast from angst of loss.
On a cold summers day. (woah, woah, ooh...)
I never said thanks...(woah)
I never said thanks...(woah)
It wouldnt work out...(woah)
Gone and blown it all.
How can you say: it doesnt matter much to me.?
A dumb mistake, to much to pay.
A shattered heart in loves debris.
Gone and blown it all.
How can you say: it doesnt matter much to me.?
A dumb mistake, to much to pay.
A shattered heart in loves debris.
Gone and blown it all.
How can you say: it doesnt matter much to me.?
A dumb mistake, to much to pay.
A shattered heart in loves debris.
Gone and blown it all.
How can you say: it doesnt matter much to me.?
A dumb mistake, to much to pay.
A shattered heart in loves debris.

Your Heart is Cold [ for sake of rhyme]

Your heart is cold,
Honey did you drink coke?
I've had my heart sold,
How much can you pay?
I can get it back for your sake.
No one else can feel this
But I love you miss
Baby you just have to trust me
I can't be a player,
And you know I'm no footballer
I just want to be your lover
No matter the weather
Good or bad
With you will I stand.
Never will I leave your side
Whatever the price.

Life Would Seem Meaningless Without Your Love

Darling I love you with all of my heart and soul
Much more than any of God's blessings on Earth.
It's hard to believe Heaven planned it this way
For your love for me is far beyond my worth.

Life would be meaningless without your love
With no one to cherish, honor, protect and provide.
I treasure our moments and all that we share
You're always my angel of love, at my side.

I love how you love me beyond all compare
I've never seen anyone so wonderful so long.
I can't help but love you absolutely and completely
For every time I think of you my heart sings a song.

Every night before sleep I say thank you to Heaven
For the past day I was allowed to love you and serve.
If I awake I say thank you once more
For God has blessed me far beyond what I deserve.

EVERY OTHER NIGHT

If it was left to me and my desire
I would seek satisfaction every other night.
I would enjoy your divine, God given love
And hold you forever close and tight.

Every other night would be Heavenly for me
Though I must respect and honor what you do and say.
My need for you is far greater than your need for me
As I patiently wait for our time of play.

I will always remain watchful, loving and caring
Not to hurt, destroy, mistrust, dissatisfy or offend.
Out of all God's blessings from Heaven to Earth
You're my greatest treasure, passion and friend.

My dream reflects our love

My dream reflects our love
Don't know why this is happening
Fortune causes many things
You hugged me while I was sleeping
Conceding to a flash of sleep
I fell in…., into the deep
fraction of your ocean
Actions are in motion
My dream reflects our love
and I can't wrestle my desire
thirst ignites a blazing fire
for the want of you near
you nourish my soul my dear
yet it's all just insane
it's flaw to blame
Longing the squashy caress
you feel with grace
your lips red and moist
kiss you I must for I have no other choice
My dream reflects our love
A life span or so it seems
and if this love is so imposing and grand
it ought to be the masterplan.
The hint from above.
My dream reflects our love

My Life Is A Dream

MY LIFE IS A DREAM

My life is a dream,
like a tiger waking
up from her deep sleep.
My life is like
a dream,
it's all
up
to
me,
the trees
are
purple,
the
stars
talk
away
the night,
the
moaning moon
lights
up the sky.

I Lived My Life /For A Dream

I LIVED MY LIFE/ FOR A DREAM

I lived my life
For a dream
I could not realize.
Now I am more broken
Atthe broken places”
The winds of poverty and sickness
Surround
While I still cry out
My little sounds
As if I were a ‘youngin’.

Dream, Hope, Faith, Love...

i have a dream
or a dream dreams me
i have hope
a hope that is for me
i have faith
a faith that's not in me
i have love
a love for all i see.

I had a dream
a dream that dreamed me.
I had hope
a hope that hoped for me.
I had faith
a faith in I, in me.
I is love
a love which joins I
with all that i can see.

Lines.—When this heart is cold and still

When this heart is cold and still,
And can throb for thee no more;
When it wakes not to the thrill
Of the harp's wild chord;
Nor can e'en afford
A sigh to the days of yore;

Then come to my silent tomb,
Which the breeze will murmur over:
Where reigns the deepest gloom—
Where the bat flits by
And the ravens cry—
Thou shalt the spot discover.

Life is a dream

Life is a dream
Dream so beautiful
Life is a dream
The dream that we live …

Life is a dream
That some of us likes
Life is a dream
That sometimes scares us

The life that we live
Is our life truth?
The life that we live
Sometimes makes us fool
And then we think

It the life true?
Or its just a dream
Thats not so true…
I’m not sure, but for me life is a Dream
A dream I’m living…

(What’s life for you?)

Oh say not that my heart is cold

Oh say not that my heart is cold
To aught that once could warm it -
That Nature's Form so dear of old
No more has power to charm it;
Or that th' ungenerous world can chill
One glow of fond emotion
For those who made it dearer still,
And shared my wild devotion.

Still oft those solemn scenes I view
In rapt and dreamy sadness;
Oft look on those who loved them too
With Fancy's idle gladness;
Again I longed to view the light
In Nature's features glowing;
Again to tread the mountain's height,
And taste the soul's o'erflowing.

Stern Duty rose, and frowning flung
His leaden chain around me;
With iron look and sullen tongue
He muttered as he bound me -
'The mountain breeze, the boundless heaven,
Unfit for toil the creature;
These for the free alone were given, -
But what have slaves with Nature?'

Byron

To M. S. G. : When I Dream That You Love Me

When I dream that you love me, you'll surely forgive;
Extend not your anger to sleep;
For in visions alone your affection can live,--
I rise, and it leaves me to weep.

Then, Morpheus! envelope my faculties fast,
Shed o'er me your languor benign;
Should the dream of to-night but resemble the last,
What rapture celestial is mine!

They tell us that slumber, the sister of death,
Mortality's emblem is given;
To fate how I long to resign my frail breath,
If this be a foretaste of heaven!

Ah! frown not, sweet lady, unbend your soft brow,
Nor deem me to happy in this;
If I sin in my dream, I atone it for now,
Thus doom'd but to gaze upon bliss.

Though in visions, sweet lady, perhaps you may smile,
Oh, think not my penance deficient!
When dreams of your presence my slumbers beguile,
To awake will be torture sufficient.

Once In A Lifetime

Lovers, they come and go
Just like the seasons.
And lately, it's learnin' to know
When it's the real one.
It may be close at hand.
Don't try to understand it all
'Cause once in a lifetime,
First love, they tell you to wait
For the right one.
And then it's too late.
Next time, just leave it to fate,
You only get a chance,
Once in a lifetime. Mmm
Your heart aches,
For every day, anticipatin'
Just hold on, your time will come
'Cause you've been waitin'
Don't let it bring you down,
Your second chance will come around
'Cause once in a lifetime,
First love, they tell you to wait
For the right one.
And then it's too late.
Next time, just leave it to fate,
You only get a chance,
Once in a lifetime. Yeah, eh
Don't worry cause
It's bound to happen.
It ain't easy when
Your life is passin' you by.
It doesn't matter how you try.
You know it's just a state of mind. Yeah, yeah.
First love, they tell you to wait
For the right one.
And then it's too late.
Next time, just leave it to fate,
You only get a chance,
Once in a lifetime.
Once in a lifetime.
Once in a lifetime. Mmm

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Communism

When my blood flows calm as a purling river,
When my heart is asleep and my brain has sway,
It is then that I vow we must part for ever,
That I will forget you, and put you away
Out of my life, as a dream is banished
Out of the mind when the dreamer awakes;
That I know it will be when the spell has vanished,
Better for both of our sakes.

When the court of the mind is ruled by Reason,
I know it wiser for us to part;
But Love is a spy who is plotting treason,
In league with that warm, red rebel, the Heart.
They whisper to me that the King is cruel,
That his reign is wicked, his law a sin,
And every word they utter is fuel
To the flame that smoulders within.

And on nights like this, when my blood runs riot
With the fever of youth and its mad desires,
When my brain in vain bids my heart be quiet,
When my breast seems the centre of lava-fires,
Oh, then is when most I miss you,
And I swear by the stars and my soul and say
That I will have you, and hold you, and kiss you,
Though the whole world stands in the way.

And like Communists, as mad, as disloyal,
My fierce emotions roam out of their lair;
They hate King Reason for being royal –
They would fire his castle, and burn him there.
O Love! They would clasp you, and crush you and kill you,
In the insurrection of uncontrol.
Across the miles, does this wild war thrill you
That is raging in my soul?

Darkness Sets Upon Her

Dark as ebony, dark as night
Dark as the raven in mid flight
Dark as the grave doth her heart grow
Cold and silent as the dead of night
Oh sweet angel of mercy, sweet angel of light
Beckon to her before she takes flight
Speak ever so softly, breath life back into her soul
That she'll not tread life's pathway
A hollow, empty shell full of darkness so foul
That eats away at the radiant light
Which once from the windows of her soul did flow
For quickly doth darkness set upon her
Stealing away what little remains pure
Blackening her heart, blotting out the light
Nevermore to shine, cold and silent as the dead of night

Clowne Towne

Up and down through what you thought would be your future
Became the dark reminder of
What a rash and inconsistent faith you had
In loving your true self and your true love
Clowne towne no shelter
Clowne towne no anything
Clowne towne single angel
Clowne towne no exit
Your true father smashed his hands through the glass
And failed out of the priviledged life of his dream
Your true love has drunk herself into not being able to pay her rent
Or keeping her own word to her own self
Your true brother has betrayed you over and over
And looked you in the eye
Your true self has become weak and alone and annoying
And a true ridiculous dumb-ass
Clowne towne revealing nothing
Clowne towne a flock of coots
Clowne towne a single beauty
Clowne towne a big dumb kid

The 23rd Psalms

God the creator
is my good shepherd
my one and only mentor
who leads me on when all is hard
makes me drink from a kings glass
and gives me all i need
and makes me rest in green grass
while he watches over my every deed.

God the father
renews and fills me with strength
he does more to his kids than any other father
will guide their children to the right path.
Even in our greatest weakness
with or without his shepherds staff
he will lead us through the deepest darkness
and yet from us wont expect a calf.

Where my enemies me can see
like an astronaut from his quest
he prepares a banquet for me
where freely i seat like an honored guest
and my cup is filled to the brim
a thing i will like to see continue as i dream
his goodness, love to stay in my life
even after i must have seen my wife.

The Island

Does the wind sing in your ears at night, in the town,
Rattling the windows and doors of the cheap-built place?
Do you hear its song as it flies over marsh and down?
Do you feel the kiss that the wind leaves here on my face?
Or, wrapt in a lamplit quiet, do you restrain
Thoughts that would take the wind's way hither to me,
And bid them rest safe-anchored, nor tempt again
The tumult, and torment, and passion that live in the sea?

I, for my part, when the wind sings loud in its might,
I bid it hush---nor awaken again the storm
That swept my heart out to sea on a moonless night,
And dashed it ashore on an island wondrous and warm
Where all things fair and forbidden for ever flower,
Where the worst of life is a dream, and the best comes true,
Where the harvest of years was reaped in a single hour
And the gods, for once, were honest with me and you.

I will not hear when the wind and the sea cry out,
I will not trust again to the hurrying wind,
I will not swim again in a sea of doubt,
And reach that shore with the world left well behind;
But you,---I would have you listen to every call
Of the changing wind, as it blows over marsh and main,
And heap life's joys in your hands, and offer them all,
If only your feet might touch that island again!

Too Hot To Handle

(myles goodwyn)
Published by northern goody two tunes, ltd./capac - ascap
You tried so hard to please me, you have me on your list
Just one more heart to play with, I know that you tried your best
Well Im not the kind to take it, Ill turn, Ill walk away
Cause you cast your spell upon me, but things wont stay this way
I try to love you, I try to make you see
But everytime I turn around, youre walking out on me
I cant take it no more, I say
Youre too hot (too hot), Ive got my hands full
Youre so hot (so hot), too hot to handle
Its so tough (so tough), theres nothin left to try
I have a thing for your love, but weve both had enough
Because youre too hot to handle
They told me all about you, that Id better watch my step
Ive had alot of girlfriends, but no one like you yet
I wanna be the only one, you say that you want the same
But youre much too restless for me girl, Im tired of playin games
The change surrounds you, cant you see its all around you
I know I cant take a chance, I wont go again
I cant take it no more, I say
Youre too hot (too hot), Ive got my hands full
Youre so hot (so hot), too hot to handle
Its so rough (so rough), theres nothin left to try
I have a thing for your love, but weve both had enough
Because youre too hot to handle
Your eyes, they dance with fire, the flames just tease the soul
Your eyes concede a passion girl, but the blood in your heart runs cold
I say Im not gonna waste my time, I dont want you on my mind
I said its over now, were through, I wont waste my time no more with you
I try to love you, I try to make you see
But everytime I turn around, youre walking out on me
I cant take it no more, I say
Youre too hot (too hot), Ive got my hands full
Youre so tough (so tough), too hot to handle
Its so rough (so rough), theres nothin left to try
I had a thing for your love, but weve both had enough
Because youre too hot to handle (too hot), youre much too hot for me
Youre too hot (too hot), I can feel it girl, much too lazy (too hot)
This boy is gone, its time to run girl, youre too hot (too hot)
Youre much too hot for me, cant you see youre (too hot)
Ive had enough, gonna walk away now
