When Love Dies

When does love die?
When does the feeling go away?
Where does the longing go?
When does love die?

When does the pain stop?
When do the memories go away?
How long must I cry?
When does love die?

When do I forgive myself for what I did?
How do get you back again?
Will you forgive me or leave me for good?
When does love die?

Here I am old and grey, still with that feeling!
Here I lay in the dark longing for you again!
Here I sit crying over you still!
When does love die?

Forgiveness never came.
You never came back.
You are gone forever.
Love has never died!

When does love die.

It’s Cloudy Outside

It doesn’t take long,
But years may go by.
You will learn it quickly,
But you will be old when you understand.

It is cloudy but it doesn’t rain,
It is sunny but it is cold outside.
A turn of the dial does not mean  you are there.
It only means the turned the dial.

How long do we seek?
Without finding what we seek.
How long do we weep.
For those we have lost.

It doesn’t take a long time.
It just takes time.
We may not understand the meaning of  time.
But someday we will understand.

We long for answer.
We wish for understanding.
We dream of the passion.
We are souls in a journey.

Lost in the many paths.
The roads are narrow,
And the journey is long.
If we find the answer,
Will it end question?

A time that never stops,
Gets in our way.
We wanted everything yesterday.
And when it has passed.
It is gone, never to come again.

It doesn’t take long,
But years may go by.
You will learn it quickly,
But you will be old when you understand.

Take the moment for what it is.
For in that moment it is yours.
And in that moment is yours to take.

It is all up to you.

Someday, Someway, Somewhere

I seen you standing there so tall.
Massive beauty in the skyline.
Proud a Nation to have you.
Many came for care.
Others for prosperity.

Though I never stood next to you.
And had never been near to you.
I have only seen your picture.
Majestic against the sky.

Inside of you were many.
They went to and fro.
Working day in and day out.
Just to earn a living.

Many were the rooms.
Many were the floors.
Many were young.
Many were old.

Every movie,
Every news cast
You were there in the background.
Standing above all the beauty of your lines.

Then one day in a blink of an eye.
You lay at the peoples feet.
Shards of glass and metal.
Tomb to many souls.

Your beauty gone.
Your place in the skyline disappeared.
People looking in disbelief.
Clouds of dust covered the ground.

People screamed and yelled.
They fell many to the ground.
Pain was heard many miles away.
As your beauty sank ever slowly to the ground.

No, longer will you stand before us.
No, more will your beauty be seen in the background.
No, longer will you stand for freedom.
You will be forever lost in time.

You will be remembered.
The brave souls who came to rescue you.
The souls who perished.
The hurt and the pain.

You stand in time with only one other.
The souls entombed in that watery grave.
So far away they lay asleep from a day gone by.
So Pearl Harbor and the Trade World Center.
Will long be near.

Our hearts were sad.
Our beings were mad.
Our very freedom attacked.
The lives that were lost.
They were of many faiths.

The men and women.
Dug in the rubble.
They tried to save at least one soul.
To save the dying and calm the weak.

Long will we miss that shot in the movie.
Long will we miss that photo opp with you in the background.
And yet we will move on.
We will pull up our boot straps.
And we will move on.

We will still hurt.
We will still morn.
We will lay flowers where once you stood.
We will cry for our loss.
Our loved ones you took.

But when the sun sets.
And we lay down to sleep.
We know we are stronger.
For the freedom that we seek.

We know that you may be gone.
And we know at times we may cry.
But we know that you stood.
For the principles of Freedom.
And for the that we remember.
And for that we will know.

No, matter if the skyline is gone.
No, matter if the people have died.
No, matter how we felt.
We will still go on.

Heads held high.
Our resolve stronger than before.
Our Unity of humans of a great nation.
Our love of those who gave their all.

The planes that came down.
The souls they claimed.
The brave and the small.
Have truly left a hole.

With all of this.
We say to you.
Thank You for your service.
Thank You for our pride.

We will remember.
We will not forget to celebrate.
The souls life that they took.
Now along with Pearl you will be remembered in books.

And in our minds we will cry.
And in our hearts we will hurt.
Someday we hope this world will be at peace.
And your memory will not be in vain.

And so my friend I say goodbye to you.
As the new found sky.
A look of the future.
Reaching higher in the sky.
Radiate with light to show the way.

As the flag waves.
And freedom rings.
We look to you.
For a better day.

Between Will and I

If I protect you will you be okay?
If I shelter you from the cruel world,
Will you understand?
If I keep you all to myself,
Will you always be mine?

If I let you go,
Will you come back?
If I let the world surround you,
Will you hate me.
If I never protect you,
Will harm come to you?

If I love you,
Will you love me?
If I give you my heart,
Will you give me yours?

If I give everything I own,
Will you be happy?
If I embrace you every night,
Will you embrace me too?

When I grow old,
Will you grow old with me?
When I die,
Will you remember me?

When I am in my grave,
Will you come to me?
When I have gone before my maker,
Will you pray for me?

If I did all these things,
Will you do them too.
Will you stay by my side?
Will you love me always?
Will you overlook my faults?
Will you take my hand when I am sick?
Will you keep my heart with yours?
Will you never let me go?
Will you say I love you everyday?
Will you allow me to court you?
Will you allow me when I am eighty to hold your hand?
Will you listen to my stories?
Will you never tire of my habits good or bad?

Will you love me forever?
Will you love me tomorrow?
Will you love me today?

Do you know I love you?

Will You

Will you always love me?
Will you always forgive me?
Will you overlook my faults?
Will you always hold my hand?

Will you always laugh at my jokes?
Will you let me kiss you in public?
Will you never leave?
Will you still lay with me at night?

Will you find me when I am lost?
Will you know that I love you?
Will you know that I need you?
Will you know that I want you?

Will we grow old together?
Will we never get bored?
Will we always have dreams?
Will we hold our family close?

Will we be strong even in the darkest hour?
Will we support each other when all seems lost?
Will you be there when I am not?
Will you see me when I am gone?

Will you?

Words

The words of a man.
Test the future.
Kill nations.
Break hearts.

The words of a man.
Cut through the heart.
Break down the soul.
And nothing good comes from it.

The word of man.
Have hurt millions.
They have starved children.
And turned their back on the old.

The words of a man.
Have lied to thousands.
Taken what is not theirs.
And they sleep with no regrets.

The words of a man.
Can scare you beyond belief.
They are used to deceive you.
They have been called “forked tongues.”

The words of Jesus.
Brought people together.
Promised love and understanding,
Gave hope where hope did not live

The words of Jesus.
Are written in pages.
Have been kept for thousands of years.
And give love to those who read them.

The words of Jesus.
Mean more than the words of Man.

I

You may think I am crazy.
You may think I am mad.
You may think it does not matter.
You may think you know me.
But I am not a rock star.

I come from humble beginnings.
I was taught my trade from my Father.
I was taught right from wrong.
I was given God by my Mother.

I look not at others jealously.
Nor do I judge their lives.
I give them the respect they deserve.
And never put them in a corner.

You may think I am crazy.
You may think I am mad.
You may think it does not matter.
But God makes everything matter.

A troubled mind is now at peace.
A troubled heart is now mended.
A troubled soul is ready for tomorrow.
A troubled life has been put back on track.

You may think I am strange.
You may think I am old.
You may think that I am crazy.
But I think you may not know.
