Boo, Forever

Spinning like a ghost
on the bottom of a
top,
I'm haunted by all
the space that I
will live without
you.

From the bottom of my heart

You have appeared in my life like a storm,
but… made me feel so happy and warm.
You knocked at my heart
and it has opened with a regard.
It knew quite well how to spell
the words of love and happiness.
It told me: Forget your loneliness!
Enjoy your life!
There is no need to dive into sadness.
You have subdued me by the sweet song,
My life has become so nice and strong.
And now my dearest one,
When the work is done
I am writing this short poem
for you to understand
that I never pretend,
I love from the bottom of my heart
which is always smart.

The Bottom Line Is This...

The bottom line is this...
And anyone can predict the outcome.
With expected unquestioned results.

Whatever it is,
One decides to put in one's mouth...
Will,
Without doubt...
Find its way out.
It is inevitable.

Just like one who sits on the top.
With a sitting done,
Will find at a given time...
There is a bottom to be revisited,
One will again find time to raise.

And some may do this on a regular basis.
Depending upon those nuitritional lessons learned.
To feed one's mind and body with an appropriate diet.
But either way...
A clearing away from what had been on the bottom,
Will always be remembered...
When one gets up to leave behind,
An achievement accomplished everytime.

The fairy at the bottom of my Garden

There's a fairy at the bottom of my garden
she flits in and out of my flowers
I can sit on the step here
and watch her
she stays there for hours and hours

Her wings and so golden and flimsy
Her little body a few inches in size
but her heart is her biggest attraction
and that isn't any surprise

For the fairy at the bottom of my garden
spends her day saving the bees
for they keep on taking the pollen
but dropping it each time they sneeze

I bet you didn't know that the buzzers
had allergies from pollen, sad hey?
the sound that you thought was just buzzing
are bee's that are sneezing away

Now this fairy works hard as she
gathers the droplets of sweet
pollen that fall
diving and swooping and gathering up
and rolling it into a ball

She sings an enchanting little melody
that sounds like a gentle wind chime
Oh how I would love to have a fairy
to pick up after me all the time

Theme From The Bottom

I feed from the bottom, you feed from the top
I live upon morsels you happen to drop
And coffee that somehow leaks out of your cup
If nothing comes down then Im forced to swim up
On the way upwards, the colors come back
But all along the bottom is blue, grey, and black
The darkness is cold and perception goes wrong
And the night seems to go on incredibly long
So I ask you why if Im swimming by,
Dont you see anything youd like to try?
Pantomime mixtures of heaven and earth
Jumbled events that have less than no worth
Time in the forest to dig under rocks
Or float in the ocean asleep in a box
Or sink just below all the churning and froth
And swim to the light source or fly like a moth
So toss away stuff you dont need in the end
But keep whats important and know whos your friend
So I ask you why if Im swimming by,
Dont you see anything that youd like to try?
If Im swimming by
From the bottom, from the top ( x 8 )

At The Bottom of The Sea

At the bottom of the sea
Lies a helpless man
Lost and sad he will be
As he sinks down
For he has no courage
Deep in a locked cage
Created by his mind
From answers he can’t find

Help sails by now and then
But he knows better than
Reaching for a solution
Out of good intention
But lacking the will
Essential to the real

At the bottom of the sea
Cold and lonely
Is how he will be
But happily free
From the contagious tide
Of the selfish crowd
Ironically, like, forever
Fish out of the water

Like the water calmly
Builds its tsunami
Before suddenly
Burying all into sea
The force keeps him under
Further and further
In a world not conquered
Where freedom is assured

At the bottom of the sea
Life doesn’t change much
And life is in no rush
Since the present is free
And the future hangs
In the hands and fangs
Of the predators
Who swim these waters

The problem lies beneath
Hidden underneath
A complex feeling
Of doing nothing
And as pressure rises
The man faces choices
Of emerging anew
Or staying with the few

At the bottom of the sea
Everything seems grim
For even his family
Have left things to him
They have done everything

From the Top to the Bottom

From the top to the bottom,
There were those who chose to stop...
Actions they believe were made,
By those who went against the grade.
No matter if that grade,
Had been all about 'shade'.

From the top to the bottom,
There were those who were just rotten.
With nothing on their minds,
But themselves all the time.
And believing they had power...
To stop tick tocking from a hanging clock.

From the top to the bottom,
There were gobblers who loved robbing...
Anything they thought had meaning,
And to smear it with their scheming.
With no scruples in their 'noggin'.
And sipping on mischief like it was eggnog.

From the top to the bottom,
There were crooks and there were snobs...
With their noses in the air!
But no empathy is shown to come,
From anywhere.
Now find their lives blocked,
And going no where.

From the top to the bottom,
They are slipping off roofs...
Into muddy ruts.
With no boots or shoes,
And on their butts out of luck...
Singing the blues!

From the top to the bottom,
Slickers sliding in slop!
From the top to the bottom,
And it's done nonstop!
From the top to the bottom,
Slickers sliding in slop!
From the top to the bottom,
And it's done nonstop!

From the top to the bottom,
Now the bottom's got 'em shocked!

The Bottom Line

Rick astley
When we were out dancing the other night
You almost got me into another fight
You always want to prove youve got the touch, baby
To make all the other guys want you so much
But if you ever do that to me
Just one more time
I swear to you that I will blow
And baby thats
(chorus)
The bottom line
The bottom line
If you really love me like you say
Wouldnt keep on hurting me this way
You always turn away when I call your name
And baby things just stay the same
So if you ever do that to me
Just one more time
I swear to you that I will blow
And baby thats
(repeat chorus)
Here we go
Youve got to believe its over
Youve got to believe its true
Youve got to believe its over
And were through
Youve got to believe its over
Youve got to believe its true
Youve got to believe its over
And were through
The bottom line
The bottom line
The bottom line
All that you have ever done for me
Is show just how rotten life can be
But this has taught me one thing thats for sure yeah
Ill never let that girl back through my door
And if she ever does that to me
Just one more time
I swear to you that I will blow
And baby thats
(repeat chorus two times)
Id like to thank you all for coming this evening
All you people all you people out there
Youre all beautiful
I wanna take each and every one of you home with me tonight

Pick Yourself Up Off the Bottom

Get back to a simpler time.
If not just in your mind...
When you found a reason and rhyme.
To unwind.

Get back to a purposeness.
When you had much more sense.
And your mind wasn't condensed...
To accepting false lies...
To fly like they do!

Hop-in-that-taxi...and get back to you.

Doo-doo-doo-doo do...Bedoo.
Bedoobe doo-bee-do...Be-dooooo-beeeeahhh.
Bah dum.

Doo-doo-doo-doo do...Bedoo.

Pick-yourself-up-off-the-bottom.

Pick-yourself-up-off-the-bottom.
Bah dum.
Just pick-yourself-up-off-the-bottom.

Doo-doo-d oo-doo do...Bedoo.
Bedoobe doo-bee-do...Be-dooooo-beeeeahhh.
Bah dum.
Giddyup, giddyup, giddyup, giddyup...and
Pick-yourself-up-off-the-bottom.

Down In The Bottom

In case youre wondering its alive and well
That little habit that you left with me
Here in the suburbs where its hard to tell
If I got the bear or if the bear got me
How did you know that it would take me down
Down to the bottom of the wine dark sea
Where you were waiting there to bring me round
Where you knew all the dopest cuts to be
Drowned at the bottom of your mystery
Down in the bottom of the wine dark sea
Saw your old lady in the park today
The legendary smile is wearing thin
Behind that guessing game you make her play
Now that she knows that she could never win
I guess youre never gonna take her down
Down to the bottom of your little black heart
Lay with her naked on the cool hard ground
To watch the sun rise in the dopest part
Down in the bottom where your lifeline shows
Down in the bottom where nobody goes
Did you loose your way find another
Did you make your play or just run for cover
Is its safe to say you got burned today?
I like the feathers and I love the hat
I like that little gypsy tune youre humming
I guess Im happy now weve had this chat
Oh yeah Im really glad I saw you coming
There in the corner of the eastern sky
The tortured angel of your rising sign
Darkens the evening with his one good eye
An evil omen of the dopest kind
Down in the bottom where your demons fly
Down in the bottom of the eastern sky
Down in the bottom where your lifeline shows
Down in the bottom where nobody goes
Drowned at the bottom of your mystery
Down in the bottom of the wine dark sea

From The Bottle To The Bottom

You ask me if Im happy now
Thats good as any joke Ive heard
It seems that since Ive seen you last
I done forgot the meaning of the words
If happiness is empty rooms
And drinkin in the afternoon
Well I suppose Im happy as a clam
But if its got a thing to do
With smilin of forgettin you
Well I dont guess that I could say I am
Chorus:
Did you ever see a down and outer waking up alone
Without a blanket on to keep him from the dew
When the water from the weeds has soaked the paper
Hes been puttin in his shoes to keep the ground from comin through
And his future feels as empty as the pocket in his pants
Because hes never seen a single dream come true
Thats the way that Ive been feelin since the day I started falling
>from the bottle to the bottom stool by stool
Learnin hard to live with losin you
You wonder if Im better off
With freedom now to do the things I choose
With all my times my own and
I got nothin left but sleepin time to lose
Theres no one here to carry on
If I stay out the whole night long
Or give a tankerous damn if I dont call
Im livin like I wanted to
And doin things I wanna do
And nothin means a thing to me at all
Chorus:
Did you ever see a down and outer waking up alone
Without a blanket on to keep him from the dew
When the water from the weeds soaked the paper
Hes been puttin in his shoes to keep the ground from comin through
And his future feels as empty as the pocket in his pants
Because hes never seen a single dream come true
Thats the way that Ive been feelin since the day I started falling
>from the bottle to the bottom stool by stool
Learnin hard to live with losin you

I Am At The Bottom

Just I wanted to go up
The radar of life
Caught me on the screen
Wanting to step forward
But I found my self
At the bottom of the step
As I had to do hard work
In the backyard in an honest way,
But many immoral and mean influences
Make my steps hard to take

Like Heat From the Sun

When my life one day has gone
And the breath I breathe
From me moves on...
I wonder if you'll want me near?
Or see images of me,
That come and disappear?
Will you wish upon a star...
Love from you would find my heart?
When my life one day has gone
I hope our spirits connect,
Like heat from the Sun on a tree belongs!

The magic of life, like happiness is the byproduct of

The magic of life, like happiness is the byproduct of a great deal of faith, determination, courage, self discipline and love, with direction as well as vision, not just for yourself but for the people you care about and humanity in general. Also being here enough to see the beauty, the paradise in your life, such moments expand creation more than a million big bangs.

Like You In The Mirror!

let me be...
the bridge, the cup,
the lifeboat, the beacon.
the open hand offered,
the shovel, the saw.
the house left open,
the fire built to share.
the cool rag on the forehead,
the silence that heals.
the field waiting to turn,
the plow, and the mule.
the coat, the hat,
the blanket and the bed.
the ear with a face,
the face with a heart.
the heart that looks
like you in the mirror!

From The Bottom Of His Heart

did he tell you
that he writes
from the bottom of
his heart?

did he not frankly
tell you
that at the bottom
of his heart
there is only
sand and
rotten seaweeds?

that there is no
one there
that the silence there
is haunting
him
that there is no
sun and
stars there

that the starfish
has gobbled another
sea urchin
there
for breakfast

that in there
the only story is
all about
the predator
and the prey

I Would Like to Round the Edges of Your Squared Table

I would like to round the edges,
Of your squared table.
To eliminate the snags I get,
In my expensive pants.

I would also like to sit,
Comfortably and eat.
Either on a cushion...
But not to stand.
Or be on bended knees to be pleased.

I would like us to touch,
Without thinking we'd be pricked.
I would like to smooth the rough surface.
And flatten it a bit.

'Say 'May I? ' to Mama.'

Mama, may I?

'Yes, you may! '

Meet Me (Down At The Bottom)

Put it in your pocket, leave it in your shoe.
Plug it in your socket, flush it down the loo.
Hey baby, show me something new.
Put it in your hat, put it in your can.
Feed it to your cat, share it with your band.
Hey baby, help me understand.
Well they're fighting in the kitchen and they're fighting in the hall.
Up against the dark and up against the wall.
Why don't you meet me in the bottom, baby; bring your running shoes.

Its Like Reaching For The Moon

Sherman / lewis / marqusee
Its like reaching for the moon
Its like reaching for the sun
Its like reaching for the stars
Reaching for you
Youre so far above me
How can I expect than an angel to
Its so refined as you are
Its like flying without wings
Playing fiddle without strings
And a million other things
No one can do
No, my hopes are slender
In my secret heart I pray youll surrender soon
No, its like reaching for the moon

Hit Me Like You Did The First Time

Go, people wanna know
All the pleasures of
Ive got my favorite place
You know just what to say
Hit me like the first time
All of your friends go there
Theyre not like me

You know just what to say
Kill me like you did the first time
Come on now (3x)
Hit me like the first time
Mount this heavy snow
Its warm like a winter coat
Thats my favorite place

Kiss me like you did the first time
