Let me tune you into my frequency, for I’ve wondered into yours by simply watching you be
Draw in a little closer to me as you take my hand on the dance floor
And you’ll find we have the kind of rhythm that makes others stop in their tracks and stare
As we discover for ourselves that we have our own blend of body chemistry
That empties the packed dance floor save for just us two
Breathless, we leave each other as the music grudgingly comes to an end
But it is not an end but the beginning of a song only you and I can hear
With the two of us sharing the conductorship of an orchestra capable of playing the music, without end.
Inspire me with that courage
Give a city new meaning
Bringing it together
Renewing the bonds of community
Tapping into a reservoir of encouragement and hope
Where you least expected it to be
A quiet moment,
Rarity, held in a palm;
Kept warm and safe;
Allowed to echo,
Into an enchantment,
Found within its song,
Now, cradling your soul;
Providing you solace,
Like a mother to a newborn,
Save, the roles have reversed in time,
The child has grown,
And, it is he who now holds your frail body,
Whispering words of comfort,
As you die.
Do you remember the sun?
Walking on a sandy beach with warmth bearing down,
A glazed sea, glistening and reflecting light;
As the sea shimmers, with each wave gently rolling in and out;
Warm sands crunching between your toes,
As you and I walk along the shore hand-in-hand;
It’s a marmalade day dream;
And, the only thing bitter is:
It’s not here, and now!
I truly don’t know how this world works!
It’s full of pitfalls and dangers at every turn;
You steer clear of those you see,
Warn and help others to avoid the same, as best you can;
A perfect moment of aid, in a world filled with imperfect beings;
For a single ripple is all you need sometimes,
To bring a tsunami of hope to a world in pain.
