Wishes

There was a rainbow in this mornings winter sky
And two dogs ran side by side through the snow
The sun glared off the icy bay
I wish I was watching it with you

I warmed my body by the fire
And tasted euphoria in my wine
I sunk into the softness of a lazy day
I wish I was feeling this with you

I went outside and threw a snowball at a tree
And watched two kids rolling in the snow
They laughed as they rubbed their noses together
I wish I was doing this with you

I listened to a songbird sing her love
And the wind carry her song far
A sheet of snow fell from my porch
I wish I was hearing this with you

I went inside and refilled my wine
And took a sip and thought of your lips
I took another sip and thought again
I wish I was tasting this with you

I got undressed and slid into a warm bed
And held a pillow close like it was you
I cried a few tears I called lonliness
I wish I was making love to you

This next one I wrote after the beating death of Matthew Shepard...... The first 3 lines I quoted is what it says on Harry Chapin's grave...........

For Matthew

Oh if a man tried to take his time on earth,
And proved before he died what one man's life could be worth,
I wonder what would happen to this world.................

I know that you are in parardise today
When your angles arrived and carried you away
From something so unspeakable two souless cowards did
To you, a warm soulful compassionate kid

I felt such pain inside when I saw what the papers said
How badly beaten you were upon your precious head
Tears that left a trail through your blood were not only yours
All the angels in heaven cried, and I won't let you die without a cause

How can a human being be filled with such hate?
I can imagine there are some who won't pass through heavens gate
Love is all that matters in the eyes of God you need to know
The love you give to others is how your heart will grow

Live and let live howabout giving it a try
Black, white and gay are only labels in the beholders eye
Everyones life is precious and sacred from within
Should you be beaten and left to die for your sin?

Hate and ignorance, two losers that go hand in hand
If you want to be brave and tough then get your head up out of the sand
To those of you who can't, I will pray for you
And just know for where Matthew is, he will too.

Friends Of Yesterday

Times have come and times have gone, too many to recall
A few good friends or so I thought, no more tears shall fall
Sitting back with a glass of wine thinking of yesterday
Thinking of how we'd never part, how did it slip away?

It took some getting use to, not having you around
So many times I wanted to call but I'd shed a tear and frown
What I've got from you are memories of the days and nights we shared
And if it were possible to turn back time well, I'd sure as hell be there

If I sat and thought long and hard chances are I'd cry
Not A day goes by that you're not on my mind, oh those lies
Maybe I'm better off remembering from the times of yesterday
I just couldn't bear to see you again, there's nothing more to say

I wish you well inside my heart but I'll never let it show
What we had can no longer be and my pain you'll never know
If I happen to see you somewhere I would probably look away
But I hope it never comes down to this, I'll never hope for that day

I wrote this song for my cousin and performed it at her wedding........ Somehow, it seems very appropiate to dedicate this one to Connie & Don.

Red Wine & Roses

Many miles have kept us apart
Now here we stand, heart to heart
Looking back to all the miles we drove
Longing for you, the one I wanted to hold

Sharing a kiss on a warm autumns night
Come hold me close by dawns early light
Looking in your eyes no words need be said
Touching your skin, in my bed

Come be a part of me- red wine & roses
Life holds so much to see- red wine & roses
Making love to you- red wine & roses
Knowing our love is true- red wine & roses

Oh how I remember the day that we met
How about you? The love I felt
Loving and laughing all the times we spent
Knowing an angel was the one who sent

The raindrops fall like tears from a cloud
You here with me, I stand tall and proud
The smell of roses on wind, I know you are near
Its carried strong as it whispers in my ear

This song I kinda felt was channeled through me and may seem to run on and on, but with the same 3 melodic chord progression and the music behind it, it came out to be something quite powerful......

My Runaway

Ooh- My runaway
- I miss you today
- Don't go away
- Come back someday
- My heart won't stray
- I hear what you say
- We'll be free one day
- Lets sail the bay
- Lets grow old and gray
- We should play
- We made love in May
- My sensual display
- God loves you everyday
- Oh, the price that you pay
- We rolled in the hay
- We got high in L.A.
- You went your own way
- For your return I pray
- Longing for you my hearts heavy like clay
- I'm going crazy my threads are all a fray
Ooh- I never knew you were gay
- I still love you, its okay
- I heard you died yesterday
Ooh- My runaway
- I miss you today
- We made love in May
- God loves you everyday
- I know that you are free today
- We'll be together someday
Ooh- My runaway

Another powerful song channeled through me that I wrote in 7 minutes when I felt there was a reason for this to be heard coming from a higher power............

Standing By Her Grave

Sunday night I watched you leave
Wondering where you were off to?
Its strange but the moon won't shine
when I'm watching it without you

This lonliness seems like an old friend
But it always overstays its welcome
So I went to bed with a bottle of gin
And cried for you and then some

Please stop your running
I have what you are searching for

I went down to the station
And bought me a ticket to somewhere
So I got on the train and I said a prayer
And asked God to lead me to you

For two strait days I just stared out the window
Watching America go by

I know its hard to lose someone you love
Take it from me thats why I'm on this train
I'm pretty sure I'm going to find where you are
Standing by her grave

When the train pulled into Burlington
There was not one thing I could remember from the ride
Except for the pain in my chest from my broken heart
And how I prayed that you were still alive

I hitched a ride from this old frail man
Who somehow knew where I needed to go

I know its hard to lose someone you love
Take it from me thats why I rode that train
I'm pretty sure I'm close to finding you
Standing by her grave

The old man said "son this is where I turn off"
"Just go a mile or two up the dirt road"
Then he vanished into nowhere and a voice said
"There she will be waiting for you"

When I reached the end of that dusty road
It lead to a wide open field

I know its hard to lose someone you love
Take it from me thats why I hitched a ride
I'm pretty sure thats you I see out in the field
Standing by her grave

I just stood there, my eyes flooded with tears
I was watching a beautiful soul
I slowly approached and you quiverly said
"I love you very much please take me home"

We cried together then we made love right there
It was natural and beautiful what we shared

I know its hard to lose someone you love
Take it from me thats why I'm here
I'm pretty sure we're going to be alright
Standing by her grave

Some you know that I wear my heart on my sleeve.............. I wrote this song for a woman I never met nor never knew, my birth mother.

I'll See You In Heaven

Something so unselfish you were strong enough to do
I thankyou for that and I know your love is true
I'm grateful and I think of you from time to time
Because if I didn't, I would be commiting a crime.........A crime

My life was certainly a good one I must say
And I was definetely aware of your presence each and every day
I wonder if you realize how many lives you've touched
And although I've never seen you, I love you very much....so very much

Mom and Dad always loved me as their very own
I always felt safe and secure, and now I am grown
I know you wonder about me with every birthday past
And I wonder about you too, right up to the last.....to the last

I can imagine there were times that made you cry
And maybe there were times that you even wanted to die
Don't ever regret the choice that you made
I had a great life and your memory will never fade...... never fade

Feel peace knowing a guardian angel was always watching over me
But somehow I think you know all about how that angel came to be
Do you think about if our paths have ever crossed?
Walking along the beach, I love to get lost........get lost

The toughest thing you had to do was to be brave
Thankyou for not sending me to my grave
Maybe one day I'll see you, but I don't know when
But if i don't, I know I'll see you in heaven........in heaven
