The ghost of you

I can’t walk these halls without

Being haunted by the ghost of you

How do I move on with my life without being haunted by the ghost of you ?

I can’t fall asleep at night without

smelling your perfume.

Every time I lay my head down on my pillows, how can I rest

Without being haunted , haunted by the ghost of you?

Photos are a poor substitution for the real you

Photos of you are a poor substitution for the real you

Your kiss are so much better in real life than they are in my mind

I can hold the photos, but I cannot make love to You

Photos can fill my memories, but I want your love so true

Photos of you are a poor substitution for the real you.

Hold on to the photos

But I really want to be holding you

Photos can bring back memories

But they cannot bring me you!!

Port in the storm

Look out on the horizon. It is your future. It Is unwritten . It is scary. The water is Choppy, dangerous,

and is full of undertow ready to fake you down.

But, as I am going under, I cry out to you

You are the anchor in the storm.

You are the life preserver I cling to

When I am in over my head.

I’m scared and uncertain of the future, but I know that you , by my side, I can get through, with my head about water

Don’t call me when you’re drunk

The Merlot brings back a flood of memories, both good and bad.

It unlocks the truth strum, makes us say things we can’t take back

Don’t call me when you’re drunk

I can’t take it when you do

I don’t want to bring those feelings back

I just wanna move on from you

I can’t take the heart break that it brings me, and I don’t want to relive the ghost of you, so….

Don’t call me when you’re drunk

I can’t take it when you do

I don’t want to bring those feelings back

I just wanna move on from you

Love in the time of Coronavirus

How do I find love, in the time of Coronavirus, and social distancing?

Teledating doesn’t really have the same ring to it!!

Say I arrange a meetup with someone at a local park. If she doesn’t show, am I just a weird guy, waiting alone in a park? That’s not creepy?

Let’s go to a Starbucks for coffee that we can drink separately, in our own cars!!

Let’s video chat with each other while eating dinner together. Then, what if I have been talking to her for 45 minutes, with spinach stuck in ny teeth, or I accidentally aim the camera right up my nostril!!! ???

You could take a stroll, but as the date winds down, you cannot give her a goodnight kiss, you have to settle for a goodnight elbow bump!!

Doesn’t have the same magic!!

So, I stay forever hopeful and optimistic until this whole debacle passes us by!!!

God’s Not Done

You may feel like you’re on the edge

Feel like you’re falling off the ledge

You may feel like you’re in a rut

Like you’re wheels are stuck

But, God’s not done

When all is lost, He’s just begun

Don’t you know, He’s already won

Because, God’s not done

If you feel like you’re lost, and

You don’t know where to go

And you feel your whole world is filled with dark shadows….

But God’s not done

When all is lost, He’s just begun

Don’t you know, He’s already won

because God’s not done

I know you feel scared, all on your own, but I tell you have ho fear. You are not alone, because you know…

God not done

When all feels lost, He’s just begun

Don’t you know, He’s already won

Because, God’s not done

In the garden

In the garden of Gethsemone, He could have ended it all right there. He could have destroyed His Enemy. He could have walked away, but His love held Him there.

Abandoned, and betrayed by the ones who had been so close. He knew the plan set before Him. He went through the torture, and yet He forgave those.

He could have defeated them, but His love held Him there.

As He was led up Calvary, having been beaten and bruised, a crowd gathered to mock and abuse. As He was nailed to a tree, He cried out to thee. Yet He remained. It was His love that held Him there!!

Ghost of us

Ghost of us

You say so much when you give me that look

With so much left unsaid you could write a book

You can drown in the sea of tears I’m crying

Because that night that you left me I’m left dying

The grief I feel is a constant companion and guest

It keeps me awake at night and allows me no rest

There is a sucking wound that used to be my heart

It keeps me from making that fresh start

And I am stuck here with the ghost of us

Ain’t it?

Ain’t it better to lose at love

Than to never love at all?

Ain’t it always in the softest spot

That you find you fall?

Darling, I’m just looking for my partner in crime

Someone to take my hand and hold it for all time.

Music has the power to change my life, and love has the power to rescue me from strife.

Cosmic forces are already in play

They are pulling you to come my way. Looking for love without a compass and my true north is out there I trust!
