In Dreams

In dreams I can be,
most anything I want to be.
In dreams my love,
you come back to me,
from all the golden yesterdays.
Dreams are for drifting,
along with memories,
dreams to fill the heart,
with joy and hope,
for a brighter day tomorrow.
in dreams we’re still,
loving and laughing,
walking hand in hand.
When dreaming is done,
but rainbows fill the sky,
I know that it will be alright
and I’ll dream another day once more.
Someday my dreams,
will carry me to your side,
where we will dance away –
across a thousand stars.

Romance and Tango

Romance and tango,
moonlight and roses,
quiet times and starlight,
that make the night sparkling and bright.
Let’s dance the night away,
as the music plays,
melodies of long-gone romances,
while to one another,
we hold on so tight..
Romance and tango,
all night long,
in passionate embrace –
as the music plays.
Romance and tango,
make sparks fly,
just you and I –
the night and the music,
the perfume of roses,
wafting in the air.
No matter what the season,
no matter what the reason,
whether it be the spring,
when roses bloom
or in the summertime,
dancing beneath the summer moon.
When autumn leaves,
go swirling by,
we hold hands,
running against the wind.
In the wintertime,
side by side,
we sit cuddling real close.
Passions often flare,
then open up your heart if you dare,
let a true love inside,
kissing and dreaming side by side.
Romance and tango,
made just for you and me,
dancing and romancing,
as romantic tangos make us sway
and romantic melodies they play.
Romance and tango –
dreaming the night away.

Gold From the Stars

The gold from the stars cannot be sifted,
the light from the moon turned on and off,
but golden memories can continue to shine,
always bringing silver tears
and trembling smiles.

As together we have walked the miles,
words quiet and hushed shared,
to keep the world at bay,
things to one another only we can say –
there is a hush over this world of ours.

While still holding your hand,
you seemed to slip aways from me,
the angels were calling
and I had to stay behind –
as you sailed away on the gold from the stars.

Someday I too will foloow that path,
knowing at the end you are waiting,
I stay behind dancing along with the songs –
that always make me feel closer to you.

Now the gold from the stars,
lighting up the night,
make it seem that you are shining your love down on me
and the twinkling stars reflect your smile
and in my dreams I know you’ll be with me.

Wildest Dreams

In my wildest dreams,
I spread my arms out wide,
let the wind come and take me –
on a crazy magic carpet ride.

Thumbing a pick up on a cloud,
as it goes drifting by,
smiling all the while,
as birds in surprise echo their cries.

Then we fly, ever so high,
soaring with the eagles,
right up to a mountain top,
where I can reach up to take a star from the sky.

In my wildest dreams,
I travel far and wide,
searching for my heart’s content,
hoping to find happiness.

Gliding on my heartstrings,
so much to admire,
as the flight takes me ever higher –

in my wildest dreams.

Let a Smile Be Your Umbrella

Let a smile be your umbrella,
when skies become dark and gray.
When the heavy rains come –
let it pour and let it rain,
let the winds blow.
Take the time to daydream,
even though the day is dark and dreary.
Don’t forget to wear a smile,
to make the rain go away .
So, when the day becomes like night
and the lightning flashes and the thunder booms.
take heart and have no fear –
let a smile be your umbrella
and soon the rainbow will appear.
The sun will come shining through,
for every storm comes to an end,
take the time to dance in the rain –
wearing your most fashionable smile.
When you meet people,
with their smiles upside down,
wave your hand,
give a friendly greeting,
so that their frown,
becomes a smile to match your own.
So, let a smile be your umbrella
and before you know it –
the sun will come shining through once more,
a rainbow will fill the sky
and all of your tears will dry.

The Drifting Wind

The wind is my friend,
it pushes me along
and makes me want,
to spread my arms
and fly to the skies –
Into a whirlwind dance.
Bringing much joy,
just me and the drifting wind,
taking me over treetops
and making me feel so light.
I love the warm southern breezes,
but the cold north winds –
make me shiver.
Love to breeze along,
with the drifting wind,
it always fills my heart –
with the longing for adventure.
Never liked a day completely still,
when the drifting wind sleeps.
Love open windows,
that make curtains fly about,
always love spending time –
in good company.
The wind whispers secrets to me
and brings greeting from friends –
long gone but remembered still.
Creating ripples of waves,
upon the surfaces –
of lakes, rivers, seas and oceans.
Where seagulls dance merrily
and lazily drift along.
The spring wind that heralds in,
a season full of flowers blooming
and butterflies dancing by.
The summer breezes,
that make me delight,
in each cooling puff of wind –
on lazy summer days.
When autumn comes,
the north wind comes blowing in.
It sends colorful leaves,
high into a crisp, clear sky.
Until the winds of winter,
turn the world into ice and snow.
No matter the season,
the drifting wind is my friend,
it sings many songs to me.
Windy days just right for ,
dancing down the road –
just the drifting wind and me.

Love’s Smoldering Embers

Days of you and me,
season after season.
the joy of life,
the joy of love –
passionate kisses shared.
Day drifting by,
taking the years with them,
love ever strong,
nothing could go wrong.
Time takes a bad turn,
no chance to roll back the years,
something lost along the way,
precious love –
gone with the blink of an eye.
Leaving behind,
smoldering embers,
someday to be stoked,
into glowing coals again,
when love is renewed,
when we meet once more-
along the Milky Way.

Faded Colors

The lush green of nature,
the red blush of the roses,
were the colors,
of summers past.
As the years rolled on,
these became like faded colors,
the roses now hanging,
dead on the vine.

The colors of autumn,
were now favored,
the warmth of southern breezes,
replaced by the harsh,
north wind as it howled by.
Memories of faded summer colors,
replaced by the yellow, orange, and red,
of leaves like tears falling down.

Soon these colors,
would fade as well,
opening the door to winter
and a path through ice and snow.
Bare tree tops nodding in the wind,
lacey snowflakes twirling about,
keeping on hoping,
that all the faded colors,
would brighten once spring,
came round the bend again.

These Days

These days of autumn,
remind me of us two,
together through the dancing,
swirling leaves we would go waltzing.
The cold wind would blow all around,
but warm hearts and hands,
kept us from the cold.
These scenes I picture in my mind,
each autumn –
when colorful leaves go dancing by.

These days of winter,
remind me of walks in the forest,
through banks of snow,
we’d see scurrying rabbits dash by.
Forest streams frozen in time,
forest fairies hiding from the cold,
yet, you and I always some magic found,
even in the wintertime.

Migratory Birds

I see them gathering,
in flocks and two by two,
the migratory birds,
are getting ready to fly.
Soon with their plaintiff cries,
they will fill the skies,
flying along with the southern breezes,
leaving us far behind.
To southern lands,
before the north winds blow,
feeling so very low,
knowing they won’t return,
till the rainy days of autumn
and the harsh snowy winter is over.
Then as the first flowers appear
and the warm breezes begin to blow,
rivulets of melting snow all around,
they will once again –
become the birds that herald in the spring.
