Movement
-------------------

He looked around and saw her laugh
The woman with her lover
She has a way of knowing
The world is hers to love
Moving through life
Like Waves hitting the sand
She met him in the hallway
And held him with her eyes
The wind got louder
The earth disappeared
His heart lost its vision
As he awoke from his dream

SOMEDAY

I watched her walk down the street
The woman with long brown hair
Wondering what her name might be
Was running through my mind
For all I knew she could be a Carol or Yvette
The woman with long brown hair
She turned the corner and I followed suit
Wondering who she was
I knew someday I would learn her name
The woman with long brown hair

That one should maybe titled The Stalker
Sorry, I just couldn't resist. It's not to make fun of you, It's funny to me

I dug up a few poems that my great aunt had written back in 1918. I typed them word for word.

In a little paper valley
Far from land or sea
Stood a little paper castle
Wonderful to see.
There dwelt a wondrous little maiden
Her hair like molten gold, her eyes were like blue sapphires,
Her lover, a knight was brave and bold
But all at once in the gloaming there came a fire bright
That burnt the valley to pieces all in a single night
And that was the end of the castle, the maiden and her knight

This one is from the late 1920's

I didn’t really loose you dear- for you were never mine
It isn’t your fault that I was just dreaming all the time

It isn’t your fault that I found all that I wanted in you-
I guess it’s my fault- I forgot and thought my dreams were true

I guess I should have known that only dreams can be so gay – so glamorous -
So beautiful
Life never is that way

But- oh my darling - were they only dreams
Those days we knew
Up on the hill beside the river
When the sky was blue?

If they were dreams then give them back-
I can’t go on this way-
And give me all the blissful ignorance
Of yesterday

And let me go on dreaming as I have
Right from the start-
For- oh my darling- dreams are better
Than a broken heart.

Freedom
----------
The toils of the day are behind me
I think of freedom to do as I choose
Who is to say what a man may do
Shouldn't be I ?
I wear my ornaments like a crown
For this is my life and my want
As I travel by the mile ,I do not look back
I may see no one ,I may see everyone
The life of a man ever changes
Slacking rain ,rumbling thunder
Lightning lighting up the sky
Each road taken carefully weighed
Pain and laughter in my hand
Alone in silence.

Thank you
------------

Thank you for being you
For being my inspiration
For being my guide
For being there when I'm wrong
To share in my happiness
To be there when I'm down
For everything you have helped me achieve
And everything I hope to achieve
