A Song for YOU

Well I’ve been a lot places in my life and time. I’ve sung a lot of songs and I’ve made some bad rhymes. I acted out my life in stages with ten thousand people watching Now we’re alone and I am singing my song for you And I know your image of me is what I hope to be I’ve treated you unkindly but darling can’t you see There’s no one more important to me So darling can’t you please see through me ‘Cause we’re alone now and I’m singing my song for you Well you taught me precious secrets of a truth, withholding nothing You came out in front but I was hiding And now I’m so much better and if my words don’t come together Just listen to the melody for my love’s in there hiding And I love you in a place where there’s no space or time I love you for my life, you are a friend of mine And when my life is over, remember when we were together We were alone and I was singing my song for you Well you taught me precious secrets of a truth, withholding nothing You came out in front but I was hiding And now I’m so much better and if my words don’t come together Listen to the melody for my love is in there hiding And I love you in a place where there’s no space or time I’ve loved you for my life, you are a friend of mine And when my life is over, remember when we were together We were alone and I was singing my song for you We were alone and I was singing my song for you Songwriters: Hans Bouwens A Song for You lyrics © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC

LOOK

Your face, as Other,

must and will always be Forever,

in mother or in brother or in some thing

to smother the distraction

that takes from us the Lover we can be.

Don’t you see?

Eternity is just the reflection of who You are to me.

Ex-CENTRIC

I can never forget You.

You are a part of me.

Oh, why are You a part of me?

But, it is okay! You come and You go;

nothing permanent to interfere with my Love,

my new Love

Alone

without You,

Alone without You.

Oh, why must there always be

an Alone without You?

True Match

Bullied from the left.

Bullied from the right.

Bullied from every direction

until I see that

fight can only be

little wonder compared to

the precious sight when

I close my eyes and

I find I am with YOU Alone

who are the Light Forever Now

within any darkness and

within every night

that may come

my way in time.

Over the Fence

Can’t talk about suicide.

Can’t talk about sex.

Can’t talk about religion or

G-od or what in this strange world

is coming up next; yet

IT is always a sweet mix of love,

faith and politics by which

everyone of us is blessed,

from the days leading up to our conception,

in a moment of heated passion,

to some neighborly other

cleaning up the best and

the worst that is left 

for the rest of us

self professed guests

of this mess.

Winter Baggage

The journey to and through

the darkness of the winter solstice

is the wonder of the good we find within;

the blending of the self and community; and

the spiritual spin we settle upon

waiting for the madness of the moving orbs

to end in a new beginning

where we find which life would win

as we weather the cold that remains and

as the darkness would graciously thin

while we trustingly befriend the grace of the Light and

send the time without it packing until Spring.
