Flowing lyrics
Written in the sand
Slowly washed away
By Mother Nature’s filter
Such ironic fate
For words from shallow depth
Only those with substance
Stark sincerity
Shall stand the test of time
Thus immortal
Borne of deepest passion
Forever nestled
In art’s harmonic womb

3 AM BLUES (For Melany)

Bedside sleight of hand
Barking pain
Boredom creeping in
Hospital life
Not for this roaming wordsmith
Artistic prose from Jewel
Mel’s soothing touch
New secrets
She only shares with me
Awkwardness fades
Her love makes me smile
Her lip quivers slightly
As I gently kiss her hand
So natural
A deep relaxing breath
We thrive in harmony
When undisturbed by worldly hindrance
Tender balance
Delicate waltz
Blissful cocoon
A study in pain
Leads to complete surrender
Pent up emotions
Seven years nigh
Now bursting at the seams
Sweet synthesis
Requires only faith
My road
Long and weary
Perfect days pass
Difficult slumber
Harder every night to sleep without her
Our storied past
Defies explanation
I would do it all again
Anything for her happiness
To hold her close to me
No doubts
No regrets
My deepest love for her
Consumes me
Predestined path
Includes her hand in mine
As it was meant to be
Truest gift from God
Consummate symmetry
Blessed daily alms
I feel her pull away at times
As she sorts through her thoughts
Understand her soul completely
Intimate union
I know she believes
No harm can come from His will
Holy gift of each other
To live as one some day
Delicious thoughts of forever
This flowing song in my heart
