Once Upon A Lifetime

Once upon a lifetime -
As though not my own -
Thinking blindly -
As if time stands still -
Viewing the past -
Almost seems surreal -
Was it ever what i thought?

Once Upon A Lifetime

Once upon a lifetime
I looked in someone's eyes
And felt the fire
Burning in my heart
For the very first time
She was scared and young
And had never tasted love
So I took her by the hand
And a boy became a man
Once upon a lifetime

And once upon a lifetime
You hold the
Queen of Hearts
And if you gamble
On a diamond win
The dealin' starts

You stand to lose it all
As the cards
Begin to fall
And the lesson
Learned is hard
You're only dealt
The Queen of Cards
Once upon a lifetime

So if you're taking chances

Once upon a lifetime
I looked in someone's eyes
and felt the fire burning in my heart
for the very first time
she was scared and young
and had never tasted love
so I took her by the hand
a boy became a man
once upon a lifetime
And once upon a lifetime
you hold the queen of hearts
but if you gamble on a diamond
when the dealing starts
you stand to lose it all
as the cards begin to fall
and the lesson learned is hard
you're only dealt the queen of hearts
once upon a lifetime
So if you're taking chances
know the chance you take
a broken heart's a high price to pay
foolish ways will make fools of the wise
and the best things seldom come along twice
Once upon a lifetime
you know that you've been blessed
when you hold your first born tenderly
against your chest
and through the innocence you see
the value of a family
and you feel a special bond
that only comes along
once upon a lifetime
So if you're taking chances
know the chance you take
a broken heart's a high price to pay
foolish ways will make fools of the wise
and the best things seldom come along twice
And people only find
a love like your's and mine
once upon a lifetime

Once Upon A Time

Meeting you in the park and talking in the pouring rain
(oh what a time we had)
Running home in the dark and pretending it was all a game
(oh what a time)
Those were the days, those were the days
Memories of you have really left a scar
And all that I can do now is to love you from afar
cos everything was fine
That once upon a time
Asking you if youd stay, not believing that you might
(oh what a time we had)
Missing you through the day, dreaming of you through the night
(oh what a time)
Those were the days, those were the days
Though theres no denying that youre nowhere around
I cant help myself from looking for your face amongst the crowd
cos everything was fine, that once upon a time
Have to leave the past behind me and get on the right track
Though theres nothing I can say that will ever bring you back
But everything was fine, that once upon a time
I wish I knew for how much longer this misery will last
Cant control these feelings, Im still living in the past
cos everything was fine, that once upon a time
Ive got to build my life again, try to find somebody new
But I know inside my heart of hearts therell be no replacing you
But everything was fine, that once upon a time

Once Upon A Daydream

Once upon a daydream
I fell in love with you
Once upon a moonbeam
I gave that love to you
Once upon a lifetime
I knew it must be true
When the months had turned us
I'd have to marry you
Once upon a daydream
Doesn't happen anymore
Once upon a moonbeam
This is no place for tenderness
Once her daddy found out
He threw her to the floor
He killed her unborn baby
And kicked me from the door
Once upon a nightmare
I bought myself a gun
I blew her daddy's brains out
Now hell has just begun
Once upon a daydream
Doesn't happen anymore
Once upon a moonbeam
This is no place for sentiment
(Oh....)
Once upon a lifetime
A lifetime filled with tears
The boy would pay for his crime
With all his natural years
Once upon a daydream
He'd make you his someday
Once upon a moonbeam
He'd dream his life away
Once upon a daydream
Doesn't happen anymore
Once upon a moonbeam
This is no place for miracles
Once upon a daydream
Once upon a daydream
Once upon a daydream
Once upon a day...
Dream

Once Upon A Rose

Once upon a
rose

Was planted.

A trellis
was
erected,
a safe
arbor
for her
to
rely on.

cling to.

As she
grew
opening
her
petals,
becoming
a lovely
lady.

she was
admired,
looked
upon
for her
beauty.

One day
someone
decided
to
transplant
her into
their
garden.

Once upon
a rose.

They began
to pick
at
her
petals.

One by one
they fell
to the
ground.

One by one
coming
ever
near to
her
heart.

Saddened,
she
began to
cry
being
exposed
to the
world.

Finially
the
plan
for her
return
was
complete.

Being hurt
and
forlorn
once again
she clung
to her
trellis.

Today
her petals
remain
closed,
refusing
to
reopen.

Once upon
a rose.

Time Stands Still For The Likes Of Me

Time stands still for the likes of me
Other than this moment, time does not exist
There is no past or future beyond this moment
Just this moment in time exists, and nothing more

The passage of time has no effect on me, ill or otherwise
I do no feel it's passing
It's comings and goings are lost on me

I am stuck - lost - in a timeless era

I do not seem to age, neither physically nor mentally
They say it is only 'natural' for my body to look and feel 'young'
It is merely my age that makes me feel this way
That it is only my youthfulness
But why, then, does my mind not age?

I have felt no progression on my part since grade school
I feel as though the past ten years did not exist
Middle school and high school are a blur to me
No real memories or recollection of that time in my past
I have nothing to prove it ever existed, save for the passing of time

Yes, time has stopped for me
My memory is at a standstill
I have a brain freeze that has lasted nearly a decade
I look no older than a 15 year old girl
A high school sophomore
And I carry virtually the same mentality

Time stands still for the likes of me

Time's Arrow Arrested

Dusky shadows hide under the leafy boughs of the lanky trees.
Beyond the dark sky the sun carries the bright promise of
a lustrous morning. But it is merely a promise. For, the experience
of the past is not evidence of future events.

And how perturbing can be the obvious. This ever present and
precisely dissected substance that we break to exact hours,
minutes and seconds, and call it time. How mind-boggling is
this historian’s palette, Newton’s infinite attribute, Einstein’s finite
fourth dimension.

Astronomers say that a colossal firecracker called the Big Bang
exploded about fifteen billion years ago, marking the beginning
of time and the universe. Yet this sophisticated modern myth
does not really solve the enigma of time or the mystery of existence.
After all, why does the world exist, rather than not?

Newton viewed time as a mathematical duration, an absolute
temporal dimension in which time flows steadily without relation
to space, matter or human affairs. Many years later, Einstein
dropped the notion of absolute space and time. In the Theory
of Relativity he demonstrated that time slows down as velocity
increases. Clocks can run at different speeds.

Time became the fourth dimension. However, in the tiny world
of the atoms, quantum physicists discover a bizarre universe of
eleven dimensions. In Superstring theories higher dimensions are
curled up within the deep structure of space-time. Moreover,
the number of higher cosmic dimensions is not limited, because
scientists might invent as many dimensions as it takes for their
theories to work. Unfortunately, in relation to nature mathematical
propositions are uncertain.

Physicists nowadays conceive time as an asymmetrical arrow,
flying in one direction, from the past to the future, through
the present. They devise ingenious schemes to ride on the arrow
of time into the future; or to reverse its direction of flight and travel
back to the past.

I believe that time is an illusion. It does not really exists. The hands
of the clock does not really show us time but movement in space,
an artificial human invention of hours, minutes and seconds. And
what we measure with our objective instruments is not identical
with the subjective psychological experience of duration. External
time and internal time are not the same.

Now, if time really flows like a river without banks,
if it is indeed in a state of flux, then what is its speed? And since
we measure speed by the ratio of traveling distance to the periodic
motion of the clock, how are we supposed to measure the
velocity of time? By time itself? Time does not exist. And
nevertheless, it does. It is its own phantom.

Time is a relationship between before and after. Paradoxically, it is
the nothing that allows everything. But time is a mysterious nothing,
an arcane cipher, the magical fountainhead of bondage and freedom.
All events unfold miraculously in it while it also prevents them to
happen all at once. Time is not a river without banks but the ocean
of eternity.

Events did happen of course yesterday and before. They leave their
marks and traces through history. However, the idea of time moving
from past to future is an illusion. The invisible hands of titans do not
shoot arrows of time out of nature’s bow. Hence, time travel is a
tough assignment because there is nothing to ride on.

There is no arrow of time. The future and the past do not exist.
Time stands still. Thus the years do not pass by, we pass through
the years. Our life always enfolds in the here and now, sailing aboard
an invisible boat on the mysterious ocean of the eternal present.

Do You Have That Third Eye? ....

perhaps i have a third eye.
perhaps, because i cannot see this eye
perhaps, because this eye sees for me and it sees my
two other eyes, it swears,

perhaps, i must be gifted having this third eye,
seeing what happens next, and giving me the
details, and literally, giving me the shivers,
someone dies in an accident, someone's
decapitating someone,
another one hangs himself, the other one weeps
someone jumps ship and leaves no note on the
board,
on the other side of the view, at the left portion of
this eyesight, someone delivers a baby and
sleeps, someone watches and cries, tears of joy,
i must know, someone dives in the pool at noon,
and refreshes oneself, looking at the trees beside,
sometimes, time stands still, and the white butterfly
freezes,

for one thing, this third eye does not have a mouth
and does not warn me if i get crazy over nothing.
yes, i fall, and sometimes, i do not rise, i wallow in mud
and sometimes, i just lay hopeless in there, as they see it
i am the most lousy buffalo in town, and the third eye
sees this, but it has no comment, neither does it smile or
frown.

the muted truth, that is.

You & I

Music :klaus meine
Lyrics:klaus meine
I lose control because of you babe
I lose control when you look at me like this
Theres something in your eyes that is saying tonight
Im not a child anymore, life has opened the door
To a new exciting life
Its all written down in your lifelines
Its written down inside your heart
You and I just have a dream
To find our love a place, where we can hide away
You and I were just made
To love each other now, forever and a day
I lose control because of you babe
I lose control dont look at me like this
Theres something in your eyes that is saying tonight
Im so curious for more just like never before
In my innocent life
Its all written down in your lifelines
Its written down inside your heart
You and I just have a dream
To find our love a place, where we can hide away
You and I were just made
To love each other now, forever and a day
Time stands still when the days of innocence
Are falling for the night
I love you girl I always will
I swear Im there for you
Till the day I die
Yeah
You and I just have a dream
To find our love a place, where we can hide away
You and I were just made
To love each other now, forever and a day
You and I just have a dream
To find our love a place, where we can hide away
You and I were just made
To love each other now, forever and a day

Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time, I made a
silhouette,
Placed it in a picture frame,

So I would not forget,
Many years it stayed there,
Behind glass, with tender
care.

Then one day, I looked,
The picture frame was bare.

Like a fairy tale, came true,
My eyes were full of you.

Once Upon A Time

ONCE UPON A TIME

Once upon a time
Long before I read
Shakespeare wrote a poetry
No one shall see
The like of again.

We small soundmaking fools
Utter our deepest utterances
As if they were the stars-

But the stars the true stars
What Shakespeare wrote and knew
We cannot touch
Or come near
Not even in our greatest words unseen.

Once Upon an August Dreamy

Once upon an August dreamy
I saw a flat plane very sphery
I could not imagine the simple
Deck ducks danced in a drizzle.

I dreamed of the impossible
The perceptible invisible
Paris moved to Guatemala
Goethe wrote the Kalevala.

Once upon a winter bleary
I saw the world seamy, creamy
The yellow a purple colour
The mirror in misdemeanour.

I dreamed of the impossible
The pope became infallible
Vendors sold plenty of things
Rag rings and American kings.

Once In A Lifetime

When I saw your face
I could feel my heartbeat begin to race
In the still of the night
It was love at first sight
Not too long ago
I was on my own
Never would have known
Youd come into my life
Now, youre the love of my life
Chorus:
Once in a lifetime
Maybe the last time
Just the right time to fall in love
Once in a lifetime
For such a long time
Ive been waiting for you
You were there for me
It was there for you
We were meant to be
Now were fallin in love
Finally fallin in love
Chorus

Rabindranath Tagore

The Gardener XXXVIII: My Love, Once upon a Time

My love, once upon a time your poet
launched a great epic in his mind.
Alas, I was not careful, and it struck
your ringing anklets and came to
grief.
It broke up into scraps of songs and
lay scattered at your feet.
All my cargo of the stories of old
wars was tossed by the laughing waves
and soaked in tears and sank.
You must make this loss good to me,
my love.
If my claims to immortal fame after
death are scattered, make me immortal
while I live.
And I will not mourn for my loss nor
blame you.

Once upon a shooting star

Once upon a shooting star, I made a wish for a love afar, the one man I wish to have, for him my life I would give, when he looks into my eyes, I get the instant rush of butterflies, I love this man with all of my heart, the love I feel is like a game of darts, taking chances and scoring high, if not for him I would have no life, we are as one in every way, together forever until the end of days, Once upon a shooting star, I wished for a love afar, I thank that star for all it is worth, and forever this person there forth.

Once Upon A Time

Whatever that is in your mind,
Keeping it confined to Once Upon A Time
Fantasized stories...
With such a determination to see them come to life,
Is a condition of madness enforced!
With an adoption that has altered your senses.
Senses you've learned to endorse.

And pointless it is to argue with folks like you.
Or debate aspects of a reality...
Nonexistent in your view.
Nor can I question your loyalty.
That would be considered a crime committed.
And 'that' I choose not to do!

You are too obviously devoted,
To what has made this place great!
You definitely pose no one here a threat.
Or hesitate to defend the state of your mentality.

Hey...
It's all good!

However...
IF you begin to notice,
Drastic changes to your world happening soon?
Don't get too upset.
They are just rearranging the focus of the lighting...
With a few scenery changes!
And they have begun to 'update' the sets!

Once In A Lifetime Love

Some people have it, some people don't
Some people never will
Sometimes it's hard to know when you've got it
Sometimes it's perfectly clear
Well I know it's out there I've seen it happen
I know the way it should feel
Cause there's no mistakin'
That good kind of achin'
Of a once in a lifetime love
Once in a lifetime love
A love like we've all dreamed of
It may go disguised or right before your eyes
A once in a lifetime love
So if you think you've got it
If you feel it inside you
Don't let it slip away
Cause you may not ever find what you never
Thought you'd have anyway
And if you've always had it and just realized
You know how lucky you are
To wake up beside what some never find
A once in a lifetime love
Once in a lifetime love
A love like we've all dreamed of
It may go disguised or right before your eyes
A once in a lifetime love
It may go disguised or right before you eyes
A once in a lifetime love

Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time there lived a preacher.
He was very famous one in the Christian world.
He was the best teacher.
He taught the Word of our Lord.
He visited so many places,
So many people had joined the church,
He saw so many faces,
For lonely hearts he did search.
Once his boat had come to an island,
An island where only one man lived,
That man was not christened,
The Word of our Lord was not sieved.
It took a preacher a long time
To teach the man the prayers
But then he saw the man’s eyes shine
And full of sincere tears.
At the end of the day the preacher had left,
But what he has seen surprised.
The man running on the water was so deft,
That fact he could not realized.
At first he thought about God himself
Or may be it was an ocean elf.
He fell down on his knees and prayed
But he was more surprised
Hearing the islands man’s voice:
“Hey, man! I had no choice.
I forgot the last prayer.
Can you repeat it, man?
I’ll be your best payer.”

Larisa R (Odessa, Ukraine)

Once Upon A Time

And you
Yes you speak to me tonight
And you say so, say so
That once upon a time
When love, love was a white dove
And hope, long live hope, could spin the whole world round
Im talking east to west
Im talking lost and found
Get up to the mountain top
Im going to drop unto the ground
Thats once upon a time
You raise me up when I know youre around
But God only knows, what God only knows
You lift me up and you spin me around
God only knows, but God only knows
Thats time
Time looked around herself
Time got excited
Thats when we all got started
Still I hear you, yes still you speak to me tonight
You say then how come out of love, is all this cruelty arising?
Well I said, look, well will you look at you, youre frightened
I see that you smile through weariness
But there is not much else enlightened
Well, thats a question down to time
You life me up when I know youre around
God only knows, God only knows
Still you raise me up when I know youre around
God only knows, God only knows
Thats time
