I’ve been wishing you

Once in awhile
A day comes along
And lessons from it drawn

Adrift in my mind
Bending with time
In the hours just before the dawn

Lost in plain sight
Frozen in flight
While the dark takes everything

Rescued outright
Brought down in a fight
By an angel without wings

Fates will align
Hearts will incline
Stars will outshine when you are mine
_______________________________________

Trial after trial
After awhile
Bear the burden of the pain

Deep in denial
Lost in exile
With the worry and the shame

Found in the night
Reflecting the light
From the puddles in the rain

Snapped out of a daze
Fell into place
As circumstances changed

What dreams befall it
Free and exalted
High up on a mountain of your love

Baby I’m thinking that
Maybe I’ve been wishing you daily
Yeah lately I’ve been crazy ’cause
Baby you’re burning in my mind

‘Til there’s only you

Written for a special person in my life on the occasion of her birthday 🙂

Sitting in the shadows of a fading dying light
Watching all the lonely passers by
The summer ending and there’s nothing left to show for
Trying very hard now not to cry

Another year gone by and with it all its empty promises
A passing glimpse of lonely days gone by
A few more lines upon my face and gray beyond my years
No longer care about the why

Miracle of miracles my world was changed in time
When you wandered late into my life
Spend the days in dreaming while I wear the smile you gave me
Can’t remember now what life was like

Bye bye, how the time does fly
Seems like only yesterday
My my, how lucky am I
Knowing that you’re right here by my side

Never truly realized just how broken I’d become
You’re the one my soul was searching for
No I’ll never finish falling deeply into you
You made my broken heart no more

Now I try to best delay
Wish begone the burdens of the day
Let my thoughts just give in to
‘Til in the end there’s only you
