Campfire Music

Campfire music

Crackling of a camp fire
upon the earths dirt floor
warming are the flames
cold not anymore
loved ones gather round
this fire that they built
young ones they are sleeping
upon a handmade quilt
a guitar it plays softly
music flowing to the sky
another day now ending
sleep comes with a sigh.

In memory of my mother

It's been many years
since I saw you last
the memories I once had of you
one by one their fading fast

A few remembered memories
ones I hold so dear
are the ones I sit beside you
and your holding me so near

Why did you have to leave me
I really want to know
I was too young to be alone
why did you have to go.

Ocean Dreams

Ocean Dreams

Lying in my bed
falling fast asleep
memories in my head
dreams I do seek
deeper do I fall
in a soundless state
dreams I recall
not wishing to wait
dream after dream
one after the other
no end it may seem
no words do I utter
rushing like the waves
a warm and sandy beach
made of memories you gave
ocean dreams to far to reach

Can I?

Can I run from all of my yesterdays

that eat away my inner being

Can I hide from all of my yesterdays

where no hurt will I be feeling

Can I make the pain of my yesterdays

vanish sooner then tomorrow

Can I take the memory of my yesterdays

thrown deep for the earth to swollow

Can I take the darkness from my yesterdays

along with the hurt and feeling of not being loved

Can I let myself forget my yesterdays

open my soul to let the hurt fly out above

Can I live all of my tomorrows

knowing what I really want to be

Can I see all of my tomorrows

with feeling I am now free

Can I make all of my tomorrows

free to live with no more pain

Can I be in my tomorrows

never going back to yesterdays again?
