Whispers of the Heart

Listen carefully and the words will speak to you

work in progress

If you love me
I'll push you away
not for a moment
not for a day
if you love me
I cannot stay

If I love you
I'll push you away
find a reason
find a way
if I love you
you cannot stay


These walls will never be the same
that embrace my heart
A door was opened and let you in
Now closed since we're apart

How can I open up this door
From which my life you stole
You took the key and went away
leaving an empty heart and soul

broken hearts may never unlock doors
that once were closed will be no more


A smile is just a first hello


A friend from a distance
A friend draws more near
Just how close of a friend
Is not yet very clear

A smile and a twinkle
I see in eyes of blue
But how does he really feel
I've really not a clue

A smile speaks a thousand words
A look can mean so much
But things are not very clear
Until you've felt his touch



working and writing,
staying up late,
no time for fun,
no time for a date...
lonely friday
and saturday too,
heck...lonely nights
all the week through....

writing for fun
working for pay
keeps me quite busy
throughout the day


April Gems

Three and One
Their lives just begun
ponytails and dolls
learning to walk, the falls
a laugh, a kiss, a cry
never wanting to say good-bye

Busy Hours

 Don't care how busy, a bus in the store
I hit 60, I run out the door

The Real Blues

front row seat, backseat lover  (refers to girlfriend of musician)

music, whiskey, women (the life of a musician)

caught in a tornado, dropped along the way (speaking of myself or lover in pic.....)

Window of Eyes

Through her eyes she sees a mother

A sister is seen through anothers

Possibly a friend or even a lover

Seen through the eyes of even another

How can one face be seen by so  many


Paralyzed Blues

I'm paralyzed without your love

Another with whom I cannot share

I found my love when I found you

Till the day I die, I'll always care

My heart will cry, my eyes will bleed

For the emptiness and love they need

But with another I'll not sing the blues

I'll cry the blues over my love for you

The Road of Life

life is too short to live totally by a roadmap....you have to take a wrong turn now and again and see where the road goes, get lost and then have fun finding your way back...isn't that what they call an adventure?????


My love will let me walk away

I hope your love will let me stay


You cannot hurt without first feeling love

But why can you not love without feeling hurt?


A friend is like a flower,
a rose to be exact,
Or maybe like a brand new gate
that never comes unlatched.
A friend is like an owl,
both beautiful and wise.
Or perhaps a friend is like a ghost,
whose spirit never dies.
A friend is like a heart that goes
strong until the end.
Where would we be in this world
if we didn't have a friend.

A friend is someone we turn to, when our spirits need a lift. A friend is someone we treasure, for our friendship is a gift. A friend is someone who fills our lives, with beauty, joy and grace. And make the world we live in, a better and happier place.
