A gray world outside

Raindrops beating

Against my window pane

Feeling sad

Crying along with the rain


A sleepy day

Raindrops pattering

On my roof

A blue day

All shrouded in gray


Suddenly the clouds all

Roll away

Out comes the sun

Chasing those blues away

A wet world looking all

Shiny and new


Raindrops everywhere

Colors reflected by the sun

Green drops on the leaves and red on the roses

While over head

Stretching across the sky

A rainbow appears


Red, blue, yellow, purple and green

In a clear blue sky

As far as the eyes can see

My Friend Autumn


Last night I shivered

As the cold winds blew

It seemed that summer

Had ended much too soon

When I cuddled up in my blanket

I fell asleep wondering

If there’d still be some warm days

There he came in my dream

Across the fields

Waving to me

My old friend Autumn

Returning season after season

He waved and smiled

In a coat of many colors

His head crowned with leaves

Approaching he told me

Not to despair

Even though soon the summer would be over

The fall would bring new pleasures

Of colored leaves

And crisp cold air

Of delights like orange pumpkins

And the summer harvest

He took me in a happy dance

As we spun around

I looked at the clear blue sky

And the clouds whizzing by

I knew that it would be alright

It was time to embrace a new season

And as my friend Autumn

Turned to go

Just before he went over the hill

He turned to wave

And shouted, “See you in September!”

Just the Two of Us

Full Moon Pics 022

Together we walk this world

That’s ever spinning

Some days it leaves us screaming

But mostly we just keep on dreaming


Forever searching

For that cloud with the sliver lining

Looking for the things

That keep us smiling


Days when this roller coaster ride

Gets out of hand

Sending us scattering wide

Wondering if we’ll survive


Then days when things are peaceful

Like circling round on a Wonder Wheel

Looking at all the beauty

That surrounds us


No matter what may come

No matter when

As long as we have our love

I know we’ll be alright


Every morning is bright

Even the rainy days

As long as you are by my side

Giving me a shoulder to lean on


What does it matter?

That this world is turning cold

We must face it and be bold

I am yours and you are mine


You make me smile

At the worst of times

If I cannot reply or I‘m misty eyed

I know you’ll give me a shoulder to lean on


In this world we are pair

Not good one without the other

If I seem to drift away

I know that I’ll still hear your call


So through it all

We walk uphill

Struggling to find

That pot of gold at rainbows end


It’s always good to know

That I am yours and you are mine

Should the world turn against us

We will survive our love will keep us alive

Like Sweet Lullabies

piano keyboards

Favorite songs

Like sweet lullabies

Melodies so familiar

Bringing contented smiles

No matter if it’s

Country or rock

The words become like friends

Bringing back memories

Of days gone by

Like sweet lullabies

The songs take me away

To the time

When I first heard them

To the time

And to another place

Hearing the songs

Fill the room

Laying back and daydreaming

Soon I’m reliving

The times that once were

The days when the songs

First made me feel so great

Like sweet lullabies

They soothe me

They take me back

And soon I’m drifting

Feeling ever so fine

Old songs

Familiar melodies

Always bringing smiles

Like sweet lullabies

Let Love In

elusive dreams

Easing the mind

Letting love fly

Making things right

When love is in sight

Never doubt that love is near

Turn around and hold on to it dear

Just a smile and an embrace

Will make you know

That you are mine

As time goes on

Our love will just grow

We will see it all through

You and I will be

Special to one another

So take the time

To ease your mind

Let love fly

Embrace it my dear

You are all that I care for

All that makes life worth while

So take the time to open up your eyes

Take the time

To say you are mine

Let love fly to the skies

Let love make our world

A real fantasy

So let us be as one

Let us be forever in love

Ease your mind

Let love inside

Let your heart delight

In what we have

You and I

Will make love real

For now and forever

I’ll love you dear

Sparkling Seas

sea 2

Sparkling seas

Beneath the sun

Glow like millions of diamonds

In the rays that reflect from above

The seas ripple with tiny waves

Crusted white with foam

Upon them gulls

Bob and dance along

Sparkling seas

Lap against the shore

Where bare feet

Leave footprints in the sand

Sparkling seas

Gray and matted

On a rainy day

As raindrops splatter down

Sparkling seas

Turn into molten silver

During the dark of night

As the bright moon

Makes a path across the water

Sparkling seas

Glow with orange embers

As the sun sets behind the horizon

Sparkling seas

From shore to shore

Sparkling seas

Glittering forever more

She was his life

His reason for living

Every day she made him smile

She had captured his heart

Right from the very start

She was lovely

She was a joy to be with

He never saw it coming

Never even knew what hit him

There was only a note

That said she was going away

She left him

With a broken heart

Crushed to the very soul

She made him turn from love

Right on to hate

The days turned to gloom

After work

Always in his room

A shot of whisky

Numbed the pain

But in his dreams

She came back again

Every other woman

He felt was another she

He cursed the day he met her

And the day she left

He wondered

How love could go so wrong

Came the note

It said she was wrong

Wrong to have left him

She wanted to come back to stay

His answer was brief

Come home, I love you

He took a shot of whisky
