Take a bird from the sky, just for a moment, it endears you to me.
Find a raindrop in the pouring rain, it is a jewel beyond compare, unless you
Are directly in front of it. There is a star that I cannot help seeing
In the darkness, it has guided me always. All my poems are gathered together inside
Your eyes like a miracle beacon in mine. My road has been wild and steeped
In tears, why pretend? The end is just the measure of our journey. Don't forget
To remember why we came together. On a leaf inside a bunch of blowing winds
There's the drawing of a heart, it only means one thing. Love is free. It
Stays because it wants to believe in the right choice being made every day and
Night. Take a sunset and put it in your pocket, take it out and look
Deeply when you are alone and you will never be lonely. Smiles have brought us
Their many tears, tears have given us their crooked smiles, but believe me I wouldn't
Trade them for anywhere else. The energy it takes to keep us here is worth
Every spoken word, good or bad. The dream goes on and on. Take a bird
As a sign that there is always more, more music, more meadows, more summer dances.
