Beauty of the Buffalo

Have you ever been up very close
To an animal so extremely large
That you feel quite insignificant
You know you are not in charge?

But you find the beauty of this animal
Is overwhelming to the core
You want to stay there forever
It seems that it is what cameras are for.

That’s how it was for me, my friend
It was in Yellowstone Park that I saw
The Buffalo very close to me
I know that this animal is a major draw.

The Buffalo’s head was simply enormous
And captivating was the face
If only I could have felt secure enough
To get out of my car for a quick embrace.

But no, that was not the case, I’m afraid
We kept on driving very slow
So we did not miss a single moment
As we enjoyed the beauty of the Buffalo!

When You Find The Code

when you find the code of my secret
do not tell me about it. Be silent as i have been silent.
it is not my own making, it has been there.
i have nothing to do with it, it has been embedded to the inner
skin of my birth. Blame me if you will. Tell me i am the dirt of the earth.
it does not matter.
it is my duty to breathe. I take in the air and fill my lungs.
I nourish this body. This is all i have.
I am not mine. Neither do i belong to you.
Someone put me here and he does not tell me who he is.
Or where i come from.
I grow like a tree without my own mind.
I spread like the moss, without my volition.
I have no direction like the monsoon wind.
I have no light like the sun.
I do not borrow any like the moon.
I float like any cloud. And i will not complain.
This is myself. I do not even know now what this means.
I am alive. That is what i only know.
I will die. That is what i can see with the rest of those
who like me are innocent of our own crimes.

Judge me. I shall have no ears.

Find The Sunshine

I hope you find the sunshine
on a rainy day.
I hope you find the right words,
for everything you say.
I hope that you feel grateful,
for every hurtful word.
Even though they probably
will leave you many scars.
I hope you find the gold
at the end of every rainbow
I hope your always happy
and never feel too low.
I hope if you are reading this,
and you know who you are.
I hope that if you need to talk,
you know I'm never very far.
I hope you find someone,
who loves you sweet and true.
I hope you find that someone,
and leave me alone in the blue...

I Highly Recommend You Find Another Job

You want the oven turned on,
But you don't want to go into the kitchen?
And you expect the pots and pans to be spotless,
Because you are a new arrival.
With a jumping into this heat...
With a full set of teeth seen grinning from ear to ear.

And you wish the others to greet you,
Living in the home as if you are a queen...
And 'not' the MAID they will believe they own?
I highly recommend you find another job!
Because this one you 'claim' to qualify for,
Is not going to be what you've been led to believe.
Because of positions you have had before.

You will not believe how unique this one will be.
The people living in this home,
Think of it as a mansion.
And not only expect you to be the chef...
They expect you to clean up after them,
And cater to every whim they have for you to expect.
With no complaints from you about being worked to death.
Or moaning about being disrespected.

Oh...
And before you leave for the day,
Be sure to mow the lawn and scent each pillow...
That the 'family' living here sleep on!
And after you have made the beds,
From hand washing and Sun drying clean sheets...
Go to each one and listen to their sorrows.
They will love you for it!

And...
I wouldn't advise you to wear make-up on this job.
You've come to serve.
Not the other way around!

Have you ever been sick?

Have you ever been sick?
Walked that hospital floor with a stick
Have you ever been sick?
Had an operation painted graphically horrific

My knees, weak they felt
I heard their voices melt
Into pain from poor health
For them rebirth or death sickness spelt

Suddenly I realized life is not static
While listening to a tale so tragic
A mother cried at sicknesses trick
Her family of four it decided to pick

At any time we can lose
Anyone sickness decides to abuse!

Have you ever been sick?
In vain visited numerous clinics
Have you ever been sick?
Wondering where life will next kick

Have you ever had a cough?
Thinking you are having it so rough

Have you ever suffered from heat?
Knowing others gave up there in defeat

Have you suffered from cuts?
Or open wounds that severely hurt

Have you ever looked at the sick?
And thought anyone of them eccentric

Health is wealth and good health for sure
Is created by thoughts that are deemed pure
While the clock goes tick-tock-tick
If you ever find yourself sick
It helps to eliminate the negative traffic
With more than just a mere flick

Have You Ever Been In Love?

In the morning light
Half awake and half asleep
Have you ever laid there thinking
Was it all a dream?
But you reach out and shes there
Every moment, everywhere
Have you ever been in love?
Have you ever felt
How far a heart can fall
Have you ever stayed up waiting
For a telephone call
Just to hear her say hello
cause you miss each other so
Have you ever been in love?
Have there been times to laugh
And times you really want to cry
Finding reasons to believe her
cause youd die a little if she lied
And when in times of doubt
Have you ever tried to work it out
But still she leaves you wondering
What its all about
And when shes far away
Have you ever felt the need to stray
And tried and then discovered
It just doesnt pay
cause with her, you can be true
And with her, you can be you
Have you ever been in love?
Have there been times to laugh
And times you really want to cry
Finding reasons to believe her
cause youd die a little if she lied
And when in times of doubt
Have you ever tried to work it out
But still she leaves you wondering
What its all about
And when the night comes down
Can you call your house a home
Do you dream youre still together
And wake up alone
Have you ever been in love
The way that Im in love
Have you ever been in love?

You and The Rain That You Have Been Praying For

the rain that you
ask has arrived

do you love the
sonorous sound
on the grass?

do you think much
clearly now?
does the rain make
you feel luckier?

look at the rest of the
creatures they are looking
for a place
where they do not get
wet
where they can have
a little warmth
where they can
for another moment
live

do not ask for meaning
the rain cannot give it to you for now

You're The Best Dad I've Ever Had

Happy Father's Day,
Dad.
'Okay...
What do you want? '

Nothing.
I just stopped by,
To wish you...
A Happy Father's Day.

'Okay...
What's wrong with your car? '

Daddy!
Gee!
Can't I just stop by,
To say hello and see how you are doing?

'Sure!
What do you need?
Gas money?
Who is that in the car with you? '

Just a few friends.
And we are going to spend the entire day,
Paying our respects.

'Here!
Here's twenty dollars.
How much did you all collect,
So far? '

DADDY!

'Well? '

Can you make that thirty?
The rest of them could only collect ten.
And we are going to the movies.
You wont believe what they are charging today.
You want to come along with us?

'Sure.'

Daddy.
You know you wont like hanging with us.

'Here.
Take fourty.
And thank you for your thoughts.'

Daddy.
You're the 'best' dad I've ever had.

'I'm the only dad you've ever had.
So get out of here.'

Why you actin' all ungrateful?

Have you ever been enslaved by love?

Have you ever been enslaved by love, that you are totally abendant
And merely tend upon the hours and times of your love’s desire
You have shrunk with no personal pursues no precious time on your own to spend
No interest, nor service of any kind, till your love list requires


Dare you not to question or to chide the endless idle hour
While your love counts the time and watches the clock for you
Think you not the bitterness of waiting the love’s absence sour
When your love vanishes, biding you unexpected adieu


Dare you contend to be consumed with your jealous thought
Where your sovereign may be and whose affair he suppose
But like an obsequious slave you stay and think that you aught
That your love in soaring Narcissism is happy making time with those

My dear, true, you have cultured a fool love at your own expense and will
By never questioning, by always thinking anything your love does has no ill

Have You Ever Been?

Have you ever been
Tied to the past
Striving for the future
Yet stuck in a holocaust

Have you ever been
Living two lives
One in the past, hidden from all
One in the present, to show them all

Have you ever been
Loved so pure
To hold, is all you want to do
Yet you let go, for love is true

Have you ever been
Content! !
Content of the past and the present
Or do you see yourself linger, from one to the other end...

Have you ever been...?
Have you ever been...?

“Ghosts are for the telling”

Ghosts are for the telling,
We call them experts and impressive,
As more of them appear from the woods.

Ghosts have understood us for the rules,
So that mastering is a problem and real;
Our mothers want us to comply and so they result.

Each ghost is great in beauty,
Full of foolish whims and ideas,
Their wish is to comprehend us, even to master us.

A little ghost is no liar, but one of them,
And that degree is hidden,
For we strive to alienate it as much as we can.

The baby is asleep, the ghosts do weep,
And I am fast away in slumber;
Much are ghosts to do the enormous chatter before they die.

It Is You All The Way

during times of my confusion
when i have no one to trust
when there is simply no one that i can talk to
no one to be with
on these dark moments on these moments
that i feel like it is alright for me
to leave
to die
to be annihilated by all the monsters in my mind
when i begin to view a resting place
spreading green spaces
flowers all in white
a door that is open that i can easily close
and have my own time with you
it is just you and my hands and my words
and my monologues
just you
because the rest do not want me
because the rest of this world is unkind
and too demeaning
it is you my rain
my sunshine
my confidante
just you in this
and that.

My Feelings For You Remain the Same

After all that has been said and done,
My feelings for you remain the same.

'Sooo...
That's a relief.
I too have changed.
I am glad you have forgiven me! '

Who is talking about forgiveness?
Didn't I just say...
After all that has been said and done,
My feelings for you remain the same.

You're going to have to do,
Some jumping through some hoops!
Roll over, bark!
And make me a good cup of coffee.
Hop on one leg...
And beg in Chinese!

'But I don't know any Chinese.'

LIES!
We use to have it once a week.
You use to order the 'Goo Goo..
AND the Wonton with the General Tso.
Who do you think you're fooling?
You haven't changed at all.

Have I Ever Been Unreasonable?

I have never been one to proclaim,
I...
Was perfect.
Everyone knows,
Those self proclaimed declarations...
Invite those who are seekers of flaws.
And...
Well,
You know me?
I do not send out those invitations.

I merely 'hinted'...
That some things 'you' may find,
I do...
You may perceive as being flawless.
And I simply agreed.

It was 'you' who wanted to define my doings,
As perfect.
You are the beholder!
And as the 'beholdee'...
Why on Earth would I want to argue,
With your assessment?

Have I ever been unreasonable?
Have I?
Especially when you are addressing the obvious.
I respect your visions.
Geeessshhh.
You always want to argue,
Over the truth of things as they appear.

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.

The Need You Have To Charade

Ever since I've known you,
You've done your best not to admit...
Insecurities you have.
And those habits that exist.
Done as if...
I am not aware.
Or conscious when you declare...
You have other things on your mind.

And when you find the time,
You will work on those things
Needing your attention to mend.
And this you admit!

Since this and other things are accepted,
By your friends...
Why do I seem the only one,
Offended by them?

Maybe there is a reality...
I suspect you have!
But have not seen begin.

Perhaps I am the only one,
Who tires from hearing your creative excuses.
Freshly made to hide behind your masquerades.

And they have long been outdated.
Just like the fake loyalty of your so called friends.

Although I do understand the need you have to charade.
It is your addiction to self abuse,
I do not find amusing.

Have You Ever Been

Have you ever been
Have you ever been
To Electric Ladyland?
The magic carpet waits
For you
So don't be late
I wanna show you
The different emotions
I wanna run to
The sounds and motions, heeey
Electric woman waits for you and me
So it's time we take a ride
We can cast all of your hang-ups over the seaside
While we fly right over the love filled sea
Look up ahead
I see the loveland
Soon you'll understand.
Make love, make love, make love, make love.
I wanna show you
The angels will spread their wings, yeah
I wanna run to
Good and evil lay side by side
While electric love penetrates the sky
I wanna show you
Lord, Lord, Lord I wanna show you
I wanna show you
Haaa, haaa , haaa
I wanna show you
I wanna show you
Show you
Oh ! I wanna show you
You gotta believe i wanna show
I wanna show you
I wanna show you
Ah yeah, I wanna show you
I wanna show you...show you!

Have You Ever Been To Hell?

Have you ever been to hell?
Well, I can show you how it looks
It sits inside a needle
Guarded by the crooks

All the Devil's children
Stealing souls by day
No matter if we beg
Or, what we do or say

They take away our freedom
They cuff and tie us down
We try to scream out loud
Yet, we cannot make a sound!

The Devil's guards' they are
They sit outside the cage
Dressed in body armour
And, filled with only rage

And, once you're locked inside
You cannot even breathe
So, you better just prepare-
And, remember you can't leave

Poison it does come-
In many forms and shades
It tears apart the people
Who become the Devil's slaves

Fighting for a way
To try and stop the demons
As they enter deep inside
You can hear the victim's screaming

Yet, no exorcism works
The soul it has been taken
The pain is overriden
As the life has been forsaken

Has There Ever Been A Good Goodbye

I used to love to say your name,
It'll never sound the same.
Foolish pride got in my way.
Now you'll never feel what I meant to say,
I wasted every chance you gave.
Why do I feel, I'm goin' in circles.
All I can do, is wonder why.
I should have known, I'd be the hurt one,
I've always been bad at goodbyes.
Has there ever been a good goodbye?
Foolish lovers just like me,
Even lose their memory.
For they learn to make believe.
Missin' you is pain without a cure.
I'd give my life for a minute in yours.
Why do I feel, I'm goin' in circles.
All I can do, is wonder why.
I should have known, I'd be the hurt one,
I've always been bad at goodbyes.
Has there ever been a good goodbye?
Night after night,
I remember days with you.
Why tell me why,
I still keep cryin' over you.
Oh there ain't no way around it, What we once had is through.
Why do I feel, I'm goin' in circles.
All I can do, is wonder why.
I should have known, I'd be the hurt one,
'Cause there's never been a good goodbye. . .
There's never been a good goodbye. Oh Whoa
Ain't no good goodbye,
Oh Oh, Whoa Whoa.
Has there ever been a good goodbye?
