~ Faith ~

I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got faith to believe
I can do anything

I've got strength of the soul

And no one's gonna bend or break me

I can reach any star
I've got faith
I've got faith

Faith of the heart

~ Love The Untouchable ~

I know of his existence
But mine to him
Is unknown
I will feel incomplete 'till my hand
Knows his
But he's not here

He was here
He lived
And many lived with him
But not me

I want to feel
His warm body against mine
But he's not here
It is beyond frustrating
To know
I can never have him

I want to scream
A condemning passion
Fills my being
I dream Of his
Existing smile
But he's not here

He's still with us
I feel him inside of me
I know the sound of his voice
But he's not here

So I'll dream of his eyes
Dark and full of life
And I'll want for his arms
Warm and strong
And I'll crave for his kiss
Everlasting and sweet
He's not here

~ I Will Always Love You ~

If I should stay,
I would only be in your way.
So I'll go, but I know
I'll think of you every step of the way.

And I will always love you.
I will always love you.
You, my darling you. Hmm.

Bittersweet memories
that is all I'm taking with me.
So, goodbye. Please, don't cry.
We both know I'm not what you, you need.

And I will always love you.
I will always love you.

(Instrumental solo)

I hope life treats you kind
And I hope you have all you've dreamed of.
And I wish to you, joy and happiness.
But above all this, I wish you love.

And I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I will always love you.
I, I will always love you.

You, darling, I love you.
Ooh, I'll always, I'll always love you.

~ Nothing Lasts Forever ~

Nothing lasts forever
No one lives forever
Keep that in mind, and love

Our life is not the same old burden
Our path is not the same long journey
The flower fades and dies
We must pause to weave perfection into music
Keep that in mind, and love

My beloved, in you I find refuge

Love droops towards its sunset
To be drowned in the golden shadows
Love must be called from its play
And love must be born again to be free
Keep that in mind, and love

My beloved, in you I find refuge
Without seeing my love, I cannot sleep

Let us hurry to gather our flowers
Before they are plundered by the passing winds
It quickens our blood and brightens our eyes
To snatch kisses that would vanish
If we delayed

Our life is eager
Our desires are keen
For time rolls by
Keep that in mind, and love

My beloved, in you I find refuge

Beauty is sweet for a short time
And then it is gone
Knowledge is precious
But we will never have time to complete it
All is done and finished
In eternal heaven
But our life here is eternally fresh
Keep that in mind, and love

(Rabindranath Tagore, 1861-1941)

~ Unending Love ~

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times…
In life after life, in age after age, forever.
My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs,
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms,
In life after life, in age after age, forever.

Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, it’s age old pain,
It’s ancient tale of being apart or together.
As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge,
Clad in the light of a pole-star, piercing the darkness of time.
You become an image of what is remembered forever.

You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount.
At the heart of time, love of one for another.
We have played along side millions of lovers,
Shared in the same shy sweetness of meeting,
the distressful tears of farewell,
Old love but in shapes that renew and renew forever.

Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you
The love of all man’s days both past and forever:
Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal life.
The memories of all loves merging with this one love of ours -
And the songs of every poet past and forever.

~Rabindranath Tagore

~ Do Not Keep To Yourself ~

Do not keep to yourself the secret of
your heart, my friend!
Say it to me, only to me, in secret.

You who smile so gently,
my heart will hear it,
not my

The night is deep,
the house is
the birds' nests are shrouded
with sleep.

Speak to me through hesitating
through faltering smiles,
sweet shame and pain,
the secret of
your heart!

(~Rabindranath Tagore)

~ Is It Possible ? ~

To be angered
But not angry?

To feel hopeless,
But not without hope?

To live alone,
Yet not be lonely?

To be down and out
Though complete and fulfilled?

To love someone,
But hate yourself?

Is it possible?

~ The Rain ~

All night the sound had
come back again,
and again falls
this quiet, persistent rain.

What am I to myself
that must be remembered,
insisted upon
so often? Is it

that never the ease,
even the hardness,
of rain falling
will have for me

something other than this,
something not so insistent—
am I to be locked in this
final uneasiness.

Love, if you love me,
lie next to me.
Be for me, like rain,
the getting out

of the tiredness, the fatuousness, the semi-
lust of intentional indifference.
Be wet
with a decent happiness

~ Do Not Judge Me ~

Today I wander down one road, a road filled with natures’ splendor
Colors abound as my eyes traverse the valley below gazing at the
Meandering ripples skirting the rocks in the stream

Flowers show their glory as they dance on raindrops gleaming in the
Morning mist, just before the sun comes up to dry their sleepy eyes
Waving to their neighbors as they open up their arms to its warmth

As the day wears on and night slowly steals in to darken the skies
The moon glow gently slips over the valley and closes sleepy eyes
The rustle of the wind lulling all to sleep with her soft sighs

Day breaks with thunder roaring in its anger over the land
Darkened clouds overcast the valley flowers in quickened speed
Winds whipping all of nature into a frenzy of deceit

Morning mist turns into dense fog and slips its cloak over all
the valley below. While flowers weep softly in sorrow their
stems bent to ward off the anger of the threatening storm

So it is with life as we travel through each new day
Changing as we learn its lessons along the way
For there is no limit to life’s happiness and pain
Only the knowledge that is to be gained

Today I walk on rainbows up into the sky with a smile
For happiness fills my heart and soul
Opening the shutters of my mind to let in its new
and exciting day’s soft glow

Do not judge me by who I am today,
Life is a merry-go-round, full of adventure and joy
It is up to me to decide how and when I want to ride

Take me as I am as day turns into night
For tomorrows adventures will determine
How I will brace myself to face the new light

~ Unspoken Emotions ~

Love is supposed to be an action
not just an emotion.
Do I love you
because I feel I do ?
or because you
took the time to show it?

Love is supposed to come from the windows
of your soul and not just from the chambers
in your heart.
So, is it my soul that feels pain
or my heart that cries when you're gone?

Love is supposed to be the best form of
communicating one's inner spirituality to another.
But if we both are upset at one another,
is it our spirits or our words that
keep us a part?

Love should be me writing poetry and singing
silly songs of happiness,
blossom trees and turtle doves.
But if you don't enjoy or
appreciate any of these things,
has my love
been wasted or misunderstood?

Love should be you being able to look into my
eyes while gently caressing my soul and wanting
to create a home with me.
What if you're too busy to look into my eyes,
does that mean that
we become homeless?

Love is, love could be,
love should be infinity
times infinity and a whole lot more.
But if
you're the only one feeling it,
and I'm the only one showing it,
were we ever truly in love?

~ A Peaceful Heart ~

If we are anger
We are living in hell
What we put into our minds
Brings us
To where we are
Our own weapons are…
Prejudice, fear, and ignorance
Working for peace is
Uprooting roots from
Within us and others
What of us others ask…

There are always ways to
Solve our problems
Always ways
Without killing
The person we call our “enemy”
Is also suffering
When we
This we
Have the capacity
To love
We have compassion for
And accept one another

“Enemies” are illusions
They are individuals who are
Suffering and greatly need our compassion

Forgiveness is
The fruit of awareness
Forgive kindly
It will allow us to see
Root causes that lead to them
To suffering
This occurs naturally
And this allows
To be given
