Poetry & Lyrics...

I would like to start another poetry and lyrics thread. Please post any of your poems/lyrics that were inspired by David or not inspired by David. Smiling

I have been writing since I was a teenager. I stopped for many years until the summer of 2008 when David re-awakened my love for writing. I have been happily writing non stop since! There are so many talented writers here...

I have two David related/inspired poems/lyrics I wrote recently. The first one "Love is Here" is dedicated to David, the Anthemic and everyone at DCO. I wrote it around NYE and posted it a few weeks ago on the OTT. It's about new beginnings, embracing life and what's in your heart. The second one is about David's return to the stage.

I hope you enjoy them.

I'm looking forward to reading everyone's writings!
Thank you~
Dee

Love is Here

Looking at the world
Through my half colored glass
I see the sunshine
And I know it will last

Looking at the world
With my half tattered soul
I feel a new beginning
And my heart knows

Love is here
Dancing above the clouds
Love is here
I feel it all around

Taking the world
Joining the dance
Breathing in the sweet rhyme
Moving one step at a time

Taking the world
With each given moment
Knowing each day
Will be spent knowing

Love is here
Dancing above the clouds
Love is here
I feel it all around

Love is here
And my heart is reeling
Love is here
There is no other feeling

You‘re Back

You‘re back
And how you fill
My soul again

You’re back
And the story will
Be told again

Touch my heart
And capture my soul
Everything is here for you to know

You’re back
And yes
I’ll fall again

You’re back
And I’ll break
Down the walls again

Touch my heart
And capture my soul
Everything is here for you to know

All you need to
Do is smile
And the world
Becomes a special place
It’s all worthwhile
Being here
Seeing your face

Touch my heart
And capture my soul
Everything is here for you to know

Hello! Sorry it's been such a long time that I've been on here. I've definitely missed this place. So, I have three poems that I'm going to post. Hope you all like them. Enjoy!

Rush

You said you liked me
You said you cared
But when I turned around
You weren’t there

You tore me apart,
Broken at the seams
You painted a picture
That was only a dream

I ache for you inside
Longing to feel your touch
A night’s embrace,
An obsidian rush

In a rush of anger
You pushed me away
Didn’t give me a chance
Or ask me to stay

I stand here alone
With broken hopes, and you gone
Nothing left but memories
But the will to move on

You said you liked me
You said you cared
But when you turn around
I won’t be there

Own

Dawn breaks,
The colors fade
To black and white
I thought you’d be here forever
To hold me tight,
To call me your own

But you left me alone,
In the darkness
With no end in sight
I thought you’d come back to me
To stand and fight,
To make me your own

Instead you walked away,
And left behind
Anger and selfish pride
I thought you’d break through
To reclaim my side,
To claim me your own

Dawn breaks,
The colors fade
To black and white
I thought you’d be here forever
To hold me tight,
To call me your own

Copyright  2013-DLH

Drown

Your eyes
Are blue like the sea
They take me to your depths
And wash over me

I catch your fever
And tremble inside
This feeling I feel,
I cannot hide

But you pass by
Like a raging storm
I feel the coldness
And nothing warm

What happened to the sun?
Or the endless joy?
Am I a selfish girl?
You a lonesome boy?

I drown in your depths
Unwilling to fight
Will you pull me from darkness?
Or turn out the light?

Thank you Happy Together! Your song is lovely. I love it!

It's been awhile for me too. Hope all is well everyone and thank you all for sharing these past few years! Smiling

The Walls You Built Me

The walls you built me
The walls you built me
I thought I could never escape
I never knew I had a face

It was a summer day
You knew just what to say
I was lost and aching
But I guess I was there for the taking

The walls you built me
The walls you built me
I thought I could never escape
I never knew I had a face

I could never break free from the pain
But I could never resist the passion
You were always there
So many things would happen

The walls you built me
The walls you built me
I thought I could never escape
I never knew I had a face

Maybe time was my savior
Or a gift I forgot to open
I never knew I had a face
But I’d still cry when it would rain

The walls you built me
The walls you built me
I thought I could never escape
I never knew I had a face

The walls you built me
The walls you built me
The walls you built me

Love it. Beautiful as always, dc1myheart. Smiling

Hello! I'm back! Sorry for my long absence. Life gets busy. So, first off, lovely poems ladies! I love them all. Very touching, all of them. Secondly, here is a new poem. It's really not about anything special. I guess you could say it is about coming out of the darkness and starting new. Enjoy!

Sunrise

Lost in space
This dark place
Dreams broken, battered
Shattered shards of glass

Lost in time
This life sublime
Reflections cracked, crushed
Futures torn apart

Darkness comes
This light overcome
Senses numb, frozen
Stolen from the soul

Daylight sounds
This hope unbound
Stars blaze, burn
Calling out to home

New life begins
This feeling within
Suns rise, shine
Guiding to a new shore

Squirrellygirl, are you asking to have a few of them? Smiling

Squirrellygirl, I have them saved on my personal computer if that's what you mean. Smiling

Happy, are you saving all of the poems here? I have some I'd like to hang on to, and I think they are all worthy of saving. Let me know. Thanks.

Mama, I Miss You So Much

I remember you holding my hand
As we walked along the beach
You held me tight as the waves
Washed over me

I remember there were times when
You needed to be by yourself
I’d run to you and you were always
There to help

Mama I miss you now
Especially when times get tough
Mama you’ll never know how much

I remember when I had a broken heart
You cried along with me and even
Felt my pain
But you told me there was someone waiting for
Me to love again

I remember on that autumn day
When he passed away
It took all your being to say
We will go on

Mama I miss you now
Especially when times get tough
Mama you’ll never know how much

I remember sitting by your bed
As I placed the cool towel upon your head
I remember what you tried to say
With a single tear in your eyes
Oh how I cried

Mama I miss you now
Especially when times get tough
Mama you’ll never know how much

Oh if only you could be here with me
At this time in my life
I’d tell you all the things I wanted to say
Since that day

Mama I miss you now
Especially when times get tough
Mama you’ll never know how much

Happy for a Minute

Sitting here among
The quiet of the mountains
I feel a calm come over me
And I lose myself in it

Even if I’m happy for a minute

My crazy world
Moves so fast
There’s so much to be done within in it
I hope I’ll always have this place
To drown myself in it

Even if I’m happy for a minute

I can’t change life moving like a fast
Train but I can surely take away the pain in it

Even if I’m happy for a minute

No other sound is as peaceful
As a bird
At least that’s the way my heart hears it
It lifts me up and pulls me in

Even if I’m happy for a minute

I can’t change life moving like a fast
Train but I can surely take away the pain in it

Even if I’m happy for a minute

Even if I’m happy for a minute
There’s so much to relish in it
A small moment
An instant
Even if I’m happy for a minute
Even if I’m happy for a minute

You‘re the One

You’re the one
Who makes me fall
And makes me smile
But sometimes
You lift me up and
Break my heart all at once

You’re the one
Who says sweet words
That make me feel alive
But sometimes
You lift me up and
Break my heart all at once

We’ve been going in the wrong
Direction lately
We need to turn around
We’ve been saying the wrong words
Lately talking without making a sound

You’re the one
I gave my heart to
All those years ago
And I vowed to keep it locked inside
But sometimes
You lift me up and
Make me hide all at once

You’re the one
Who saved me from loneliness
But sometimes
You lift me up and
And make me feel emptiness

We’ve been going in the wrong
Direction lately
We need to turn around
We’ve been saying the wrong words
Lately talking without making a sound

We need to turn back
We need to turn back

You‘re the one
You‘re the one

Thank you for the kind words, Squirrellygirl. Smiling I'm glad it brought back some good memories.

deleted. hit save too many times. sorry.

Hi Happy, I read your song/poem. It reminded me of when I was 4-5 years old, swinging on a swing in my backyard. I would make up songs swinging on that swing, and dream about a little boy in kindergarten that I had a crush on! Then when I was a teenager, I would hang out in my grandfather's backyard.
(Our mom dropped us kids off there to live with him because she couldn't take care of us after her and dad's marriage broke up.)
Anyway, I would dream of gypsies and dancing and music. The whole world was out there, outside our backyard. Lots of dreams. I was in high school and I got to ride the bus downtown to go to my vocational high school. I felt like Mary Tyler Moore, in a "big" city (Dayton was big to me when I was 14 years old). I would shop at the stores with my school friends down there. It was so much fun. New experiences. Lots of dreams of how it would be when I would be on my own.

Love your work, Squirrellygirl! Thanks for sharing. Smiling You are very talented. I had a feeling David would start writing with country artists. He has the talent to do it for sure!
I haven't been here in a long while.. wrote this today. I think it could be a country song.

My Backyard

I’m feeling a little older these
days so many changes but everything
Looks the same

Some days I want to go back
To the place where I felt my best
The place where I felt free
Some days it was only me

In my backyard
I use to dance
In my backyard
I always had the chance
To be whatever I wanted to be
In my backyard

So many years have come and gone
The faces that smiled at me have moved
On

Some days I want to go back
To the place where I felt my best
The place where I felt free
Some days it was only me

In my backyard
I use to dance
In my backyard
I always had the chance
To be whatever I wanted to be
In my backyard

Why did those days
Have to fade away so fast
When I was there it felt like those
Moments would last and last
I can still feel the sun on my face
As I lay in the summer haze

Some days I need to go back
To the place where I felt my best
The place where I felt free
Some days it was only me
In my backyard

I use to dance
In my backyard
I always had the chance
To be whatever I wanted to be
In my backyard
I could be whoever I wanted to be
Most days it was only me
In my backyard

In my backyard
I use to dance
In my backyard
I always had the chance
To be whatever I wanted to be
In my backyard

With all the talk right now about country music and how David is writing with country artists, I have to force this country song on you all that I wrote back when I was 14 years old. I hated the twangy country music on the radio back in the 70's, so I wrote a country song meant to be sarcastic and funny, making fun of country music. I've softened my views on country music since then, and I have even purchased a couple country albums. However, my true love is still for the rock n roll. But here it is, for laughs and giggles:

I LOST MY LOVE

I lost my love
on Saturday night
I lost my love
and I didn't feel right
And then I felt
just like a doggggggg
Oh Darlin' I love you so much!

Well yesterday
I received a note
And it just read:
"I'm gonna be married!"
And then I fell
right out of my seat!
Oh Darlin' I wish I was dead!

Sorry folks, I had to do it!
The moral of the story is this: You might hate something when you're young, but when you grow older, you soften and might like it. Not this song, but good country music. Leave out the twang, unless it is mid western TWANG, like our boy, David. Heh.

And another.
I don't want to know all your thoughts, Just the good ones...
I'm not going to change for you
Love me as I am or not at all.
Excuse my attitude,
But I think you're kind of shady.
No more sad songs for you
I'll find somebody new
You think you are so fine
So don't let me blow your mind.
We sometimes break our mirrors, and I'll find somebody new.
I'll find somebody kind...of like you...
Only better...PSYCHE!...
Only better...PSYCHE!...
ONLY BETTER!

And here's a silly song I wrote for a guy I never met over the internet--geez, that rhymes! Ha!
I wrote another song for my YOU TUBE DUDE (Warning: it gets real silly at the end).
A Ditty For MY YOU TUBE DUDE!!!
Some people find too much love
They can't decide which one to choose
Some people never find love at all
Hearts turning the color of blue
Love repeatedly denied discourages the stoutest of hearts
But I always believed
What is easy to receive
May sometimes leave you deceived
I decided to choose a different path one day
One I had ignored and avoided in the past
It was a harder road to walk
Twists and turns in my sight
Treacherous moments that made me afraid
But determined was I to find my true love
A soul mate forever I'd choose
So happy was I to have found him in you
Never thought I would call him MY YOU TUBE DUDE!!!!!
I cannot stop laughing as I close this little ditty
I tried to be serious--It's TRUE!
But I was stopped
In my tracks by a sillybone
Laid up in my hairbrained head
And thus, the words: they just popped...OUT!
SG

More songs I wrote after meeting David. Some of these songs are about old boyfriends, my brother, some are inspired by David, and some go off on other tangents. FYI, I do love some of David's hard rock covers, but one song touches on my need to hear David sing from his heart, as he does in his slow sad ballads that I find comforting.

Happy, tell me what you think...

Your song touched my soul
And I cried unexpectant tears
I could feel my heart breaking
I knew I couldn't turn away
I sought you out
I heard you play
But your music had changed
Heavy metal and loudness
As you tried to find your way
i couldn't find the emotion
I went home and cried
I felt like I was mourning
I thought I'd never hear your sweet sound again.
I listen to your new songs now
I play them over and over
And I try to find my heart again
It was crushed in the brassness of your metal
Where was the love of the one who sang those sweet songs to my heart?
Was he replaced by another?
I found a glimpse of you singing a sad song
So bittersweet, yet so much love
i heard your sweet sound again.

Squirrellygirl

I don't like the way you speak, so arrogant, yet sugar sweet
Don't approve of your politics, logics not your winning suit
But there's something about your swagger
I can't put my finger on it
When I look into your eyes
Your wish is my command
I can't speak
Who can stand against your charms?
I'm hypnotized
Your eyes pierce my soul
Don't crush me just because you can
Have pity on me
Because I'm in love.
I'm not going to ask you twice
Pay attention
Use your head
I'm reaching out to you right now
Bet against me, kill our dreams
You haven't encountered anyone like me
Think I'm dangerous
Think you're safe?
Play the game and try to win
If you don't care
Let it slip away
But I think you better check your radar
I think it might be dead.

Squirrellygirl

Song To My Brother
I love you, my brother. I miss you
I remember the days
When we were young and life was long
And the day had just begun.
It hurts when I think about the pain you went through
When your body rebelled against you
I prayed to take your pain
But silence was the only answer
and the solution was death.
I long to see you again, my brother
See you on the other side
How long before we converse, play a game of Monopoly,
and take another walk down our Grandpa's road?
No more pain, just love to surround us.
This song is dedicated to my brother, Larry, who died from complications due to the AIDS virus and is now in heaven cheering me on in this life.

Squirrellygirl

Just Another Song
I was so nervous to see you
My heart pounded with anticipation
I looked at you and you appeared annoyed
Did I see disdain, unapproval, perhaps judgment?
Later I realized it was sadness
I disappeared into the darkness
My heart broken again
Shattered into a million pieces
Lonliness is again my friend
Just want to disappear
Find a new way, sing a new song
Who would notice if I was gone?
Who would really care?
Would I be missed?
Is there really someone special for everyone?
Am I doomed to be forever alone?
Which hurts more...
Reaching out, trusting yet again?
Or living my life alone by myself, no one to love
Who am I? What am I?
Just a song in the wind
Did you miss me? Did you notice I was gone?

Squirrellygirl

I Am Your Song
I am an island
I am your song
I can't touch you softly if you are not there
I can't think about you, I'll go mad with lonliness
I know you've got to be the best you can be
I won't hold you back
I'll set you free
I'll caress you in your dreams
For a fleeting moment you are in my arms
If I am pricked do I not bleed?
Longing for a sense of normalcy
Driven to live out my dreams
Not turning back
Going forward
Future intact, but at what cost?
Can't walk down the street
Lost my love, what can I do to make you come back to me?
Nothing to offer but my songs
I am real and I do hurt
Pain is my faithless friend
I long to be numb
I'll pour myself out on stage for you
Drain my heart of all life
Will I convince you to be mine alone?
Reason with you to surrender all
Listen to my voice
Let me soothe your heart
Do I fulfill your needs?
Come back to me
Play me and I will seduce you again
I am an island
I am your song
You think you know my mind, who I really am?
I'm not superman
I'm just a singer of songs
Longing for a sense of normalcy
Driven to live out my dreams
You will never truly know me
You see only what you want to see
If I am pricked do I not bleed?
I am an island
I am your song
I love you, David.
Squirrellygirl (Shirley)

Who Are You?
I'm glad we played the game
You made me forget
You seemed so sweet
But you can't hide your conceit
You're just another actor and always take the easy way out
So fake, you're not even for real
What I loved was all make believe
Vanity hides your true inner beauty
I tasted your metal
You can't bleed because your heart has no flow
Go ahead and numb your heart
But it stlil shows: I see through it all
Void replaces emotion as it is the end to your destruction
You drain me with your empty requests
Selfishness brings me down below to where you can be found
You perform your music like you hate it
Yet your spirit haunts my dreams
Just piss away all of your talent
and throw me away
Try to manipulate me
You can't because I see your true intent
You're into games under the guise of being funny
And you cut me to pieces because you can
I'll leave you behind, way behind
I'll forget your name
I will sing your song no more
Rebellion is my salvation
Squirrellygirl

I SHUT DOWN
I protected my heart from hurt
Why do I feel all this pain?
I played it all out in my head
What I would say, what I would do
But I shut down when I saw you
I looked into your eyes
And you pierced me with hate
I fumbled for the right words to say
But they didn't come
All I wanted to do was run away...instead, I shut down.
Maybe you're not who I thought you were
Maybe I gave you too much credit
You're just a good actor, not revealing who you are
Angel of light or snake...can I trust you?
The tears are flowing
I can't stop crying
My heart is breaking
And I can't stop
I placed your love in a box
next to the others like you
Just another reminder
Why I shut down
I want to know your heart
I tried to look into your eyes
But I couldn't find any love there
I'm going through the motions now
No reward and nothing gained
I protected my heart and I shut down
Did I expect too much
What did I see in you
I asked you to lift me up
You answered me with emptiness
I want to feel your touch
Remember your smell
Your laugh, your love
I can't stand it anymore
I tried...I really did
Yes, I shut down
The tears are flowing
I can't stop crying
My heart is breaking
And I can't stop
I placed your love in a box
next to the others like you
Just another reminder
Why I shut down
Squirrellygirl

This Song Is For You
Without love there is no meaning
My love will last and I will live forever
I can remember your laugh, your smile, your zest for life
And I have no regrets, we lived life the best we could
Don't be sad for me, 'cause we will soon meet again
Although I can't speak right now, my spirit is alive and well
Be comforted with this.
It's not how rich you are / it's not how much came easy in life
It's how we live with what we have
How we are content and appreciate life's gifts, even the small ones.
Every moment is a gift.
Love is a gift.
I will live forever.

Squirrellygirl

Here's another song/poem I wrote after David inspired me to write again! Sad, but I think it has potential as a sad love song.

I Will Drown You Out

Be quiet, my heart
You make too much trouble
You cry for the smallest of things
You hurt and won't be comforted.
Always falling, ever empty
I won't recover this time, I am so sure of it
The familiar ache won't go away
Be quiet, my heart
You are far too bossy
And you confuse my mind with all of your foolish schemes
I'm trying so hard to be smart this time
But I keep falling for all of your traps
You sure had me going
But I'm determined to get back on track.
Be quiet, my heart
Or I will drown you out
I will turn up life around me
And I will drown you out
I can't find you
I will drown you out
I can't see you
I will drown you out
I can't feel you
I will drown you out
I 'll forget you
I will drown you out!

I wrote this back in 2009, totally influenced by David Cook ("Songs of sadness
Skillfully sung purposed to break my heart."). I would listen to David's music and although I had written songs/poems before, I hadn't for a while until I discovered David on Idol and started playing his music.

Hope you enjoy this. I think this might be some of my greatest work that I've done. I've written some songs, even recorded some of them (back before CD's).

BLUE IS MY FAVORITE COLOR

Blue is my favorite color
It's the color that matches my mood
Blue is the color of my feelings
for the love that I elude.

Why do I find love so fleeting
Like a game I'm not wanting to play?
Forever chasing, never catching
Leaves me wanting to run away.

Yellow is the color of my sun
Drinking in energy and hope
Twisting my thoughts through electricity
Resulting in moments of reality.

Thoughts of other times and dimensions
Resulting in no limitations
Secrets revealed in my sleep
Not as easy to interpret as it seems.

Red is the color of my dreams
Hiding my closest held secrets
From my heart heavy with memories
And my mind tired of thoughts.

Add all the colors together
You may not like what you find
The end is the color of darkness
Out of sight, out of my mind.

So I set off on my mission
Why my favorite color was so blue
Searching in the darkness for answers
I knew who I was talking to.

What was forgotten was profound
I'd forgotten the color of sound
It was worthy to mention
I totally dissed a different dimension.

I knew I always loved music
Many songs I held so dear
But none of those could compare
To the new ones I would hear.

Songs of sadness
Skillfully sung purposed to break my heart.
Triggering various shades of color
Uncontrollable tears falling from my eyes.

Blue's my favorite color
It's still the color of my mood
The color I find most profound
It is the color of my sound.

Now when I add the colors together
Opening my eyes, I see...
Various shades of darkness
Penetrating the sound in me.

Thank you, Danika.

Thank you Dee! Love the video! David would be touched if he saw this.

In honor of David's audition this time 4 years ago, I wanted to post this here. It is something I'm proud of. I worked with 4 amazing and talented ladies from across the nation and theUK. We did this virtually in less than 2 weeks. I have never had the pleasure to meet them after all this time but I consider them my friends. We created a Fan- Created Video to David's" I Did it For You" to "We Did it For You." It was an incredible experience. Hope you enjoy it. Smiling Karen/Producer/Idea, Emma/Videographer, Sue/Guitar, Jen/Backing Vocals, Me/Lead Vocals/Fan- Created Lyrics.

Beautiful, Danika. I think it's one of your best. Beautiful to you too, alwayslovedc. Happy New Year to you too. Smiling

Hello! Sorry it's been a long time since I've been on here. With things going on my creativity and writing level has gone down dramatically. But, I have poem I wrote a few days ago. Hope you like it!

Glow

Burning light, beaming bright
You shine down upon me
High in the sky, you dare to fly
Casting wings upon me

Guiding light, shining bright
You glow within my soul
Shadows at bay, you push them away
Forever sealing the hole

Soothing light, glowing bright
You comfort my troubled heart
Sweeping down, without a sound
Healing what's been torn apart

Star light, star bright
You rest along my dreams
High above, so filled with love
Radiant as the summer's gleam

Beautiful poems, everyone, and happy new year!

Waiting

For the day to come
For the sorrow to end
For the misery to vanish
For the fears to drift away

For no regrets
For nothing but love
For no lies, no excuses

Waiting
For the day
When things will be alright

This is so beautiful. It's amazing when you read something that you feel you could have written yourself. Standing in front of me is so sincere and emotional. Have you tried to get some of this published somehow?

Thanks, Danika. Smiling

Beautiful writings Dee! They both capture the essence of David. Love them! I really like your spin on LMFFY.

Standing in front of me

They say you have a heart of gold
But I want to see it myself
They say your smile soothes their soul
But I want to feel it myself

If only you were standing right in
Front of me
Even though I wouldn’t know
What to say
I would do anything to make you stay

The road you’ve traveled
Is strewn with sadness and pain
But maybe someday you will feel that
Love again

If only you were standing right in
Front of me
Even though I wouldn’t know
What to say
I would do anything to make you stay

If only I could look into
Your eyes
And I tell you besides
All the love I have inside

If only you were standing right in
Front of me
Even though I wouldn’t know
What to say
I would do anything to make you stay

If only you were standing in front of me
If only you were standing in front of me

I love this song: Let me Fall for You:
Had some fun doing this.. this is to the tune of LMFFY:

We were wrong
We were wrong
Thinking our hearts
Could be our own

All along
All along
We had a reason
To hold on

We did it all
We did it all
For you
We did it all for you

Hear the sound
Hear the sound
Of the music flowing through

Turn around
Turn around
You’ll see our hearts
Have changed
For you

We did it all
We did it all
For you
We did it all for you

You have shown us
To look deep inside ourselves
We all the words
You‘ve ever said

We’ll never wonder
Or fear to know the truth
We’ve got something
To hold on to
We did it all for you

All the time
All the time
We knew that you could
Help us through

Like a sign
Like a sign
You were light that shined
So true

We did it all
We did it all
For you
We did it all for you

You have shown us
To look deep inside ourselves
We all the words
You‘ve ever said

We’ll never wonder
Or fear to know the truth
We’ve got something
To hold on to
We did it all for you

(We will fear no longer
We will never wonder why
Hold us close and we ever stronger
We will never wonder why)

To David: – to the tune of - Let Me Fall For You.

Beautiful as always-alwayslovedc.

Happy New Year, Everyone! Thank you for for sharing. Smiling

Just a short poem I crafted yesterday when I had nothing to do Smiling

The day
It changed us
We were once so strong
What happened?

We got lost along the way
The ride was rocky
The road was bumpy
We couldn’t conquer our fears.

Today, we sit alone
Accompanied by nothing but our tears.

Lovely poems Dee. Both are very beautiful.

You Know Me
( For Deena)

You know me
Better than I know myself
You show me
I don’t need the dreams
Of someone else

You know me
And you listen
With a quiet heart
You show me
All that you given me
From the start

My friend
How can I tell you
My Friend
What can I say
My friend
You know me
And I know it will
Always stay that way

You know me
More than I ever
Thought you could
You hear me
When no one ever would

My friend
How can I tell you
My Friend
What can I say
My friend
You know me
And I know it will
Always stay that way

You know me
And you know my pain
You show me how
To live life again

My friend
How can I tell you
My Friend
What can I say
My friend
You know me
And I know it will
Always stay that way

All I know Is…

All I know is
All I know is
I live each day to
See you smile

All I know is
All I know is
Every day is summertime

You smile
And I come undone
You’re the reason
I’ll never run

All I know is
All I know is
The warmth of your touch
Fills my soul

All I know is
All I know is
Your heart
Keeps me holding on

You smile
And I come undone
You’re the reason
I’ll never run

All I know is
You‘re the reason
I’ll never run

All I know is
All I know is
You‘re the reason
I’ll never run

Beautiful post and poem, Danika.
Thank you for the kinds words.

Dee, I absolutely LOVE your poem. It almost made me cry because I can relate to it.

This poem that I posted was written by Sara Teasdale. She suffered from depression and took her own life and this poem reflects how the pain she was feeling came to peace by finding hope in the stars. My choir is singing this song at our choir concert and while working on it our choir director told us in order to "feel" the song we have to find what our star is. He said our star can be a person, a place, a dream, anything that has helped us reached our dreams or inspired us to reach and go for our dreams or just inspired us. For me, David fits this description. He has helped me and touched me in so many ways and is my inspiration in everything I do and motivates me to go for my dreams even in the darkest of times. David is my beacon of hope, he is my star. So, this poem/song is for David and this weekend I will sing it for him.

Stars I Shall Find (Also known as There Will Be Rest)

There will be rest, and sure stars shining
Over the roof-tops crowned with snow,
A reing of rest, serene forgetting,
The music of stillness holy and low

I will make this world of my devising,
Out of a dream in my lonely mind,
I shall find the crystal of peace, above me
Stars I shall find

If you have a dream
You‘ve got to open it up
And see what’s inside

If you have a dream
You’ve got to look around and
See what’s behind it

I know you don’t know which way to turn
But I know there’s something inside you that burns

If you have a dream
You‘ve got to open it up
And see what’s inside

If you have a dream
You’ve got to look around and
See what’s behind it

I know you‘re tired of heartache and pain
But I know you want to feel the light again

If you have a dream
You‘ve got to open it up
And see what’s inside

If you have a dream
You’ve got to look around and
See what’s behind it

Open it up
Open it up
See what‘s inside

Open it up
Open it up
Don’t let it die

If you have a dream
You‘ve got to open it up
And see what’s inside

If you have a dream
You’ve got to look around and
See what’s behind it

See what’s behind it
See what’s inside

Don’t let it die

Thank you Dee. Your poem is lovely too. It's nice to be back.

That's so beautiful, Danika. Smiling I was also inspired tonight and wrote the poem below about what David has given me too.
So nice to see you back! Thanks for sharing!

In these three years, I was sad and lonely
But you showed me how to smile again

In these three years, I was afraid to dream
But you showed me what was inside of me

In these three years, my heart had walls
But you showed me how to reach out

In these three years, my eyes saw only confusion
But you showed me the stillness of a clear day

In these three years,
I could never repay all you given
me

In these three years,
You given me hope, joy and inspiration.

Hello! Sorry it's been a while since I've posted on here but I do have something to share. This song is inspired by/for David. It kind of reflects how he has touched my life. I'm sure a lot of others can relate. Hope you like it!

Something to Believe In

I was lost in the sea
You came to me
And showed me how to breathe

You opened the door
And showed me a cure
That brought me to your truth

How can your soul
Be so full of love?
I see it in your face,
It’s a beautiful place

*chorus*
You smile at me
And the world disappears
Your grace and your heart
Were there from the start
And I know I can be
Whatever you need
Cause you, yes, you
Gave me something to believe in

When I’m lost in all doubt
You pull me out
And hold me close in your arms

Your whispers I hear
Are ever so clear
Every time I look in your eyes

How can your soul
Be so full of love?
I see it in your face,
It’s a beautiful place

*chorus*
You smile at me
And the world disappears
Your grace and your heart
Were there from the start
And I know I can be
Whatever you need
Cause you, yes, you
Gave me something to believe in

*Bridge
You take my hand
And there’s a ray of light
This is our love
This is our hope

*chorus*
You smile at me
And the world disappears
Your grace and your heart
Were there from the start
And I know I can be
Whatever you need
Cause you, yes, you
Gave me something to believe in

Something to believe in

Lovely poem Dee! Sorry it's really late but Happy Anniversary!

Today my Husband and I celebrated our 18th Wedding Anniversary. This is dedicated to him.
Love

You make me delirious
You make me curious
You hold my heart it seems

You make me fall
You make me crawl
You hold my heart it seems

You make me wild
You make me sigh
You hold my heart it seems

Our world is small
Behind these walls
But we live a life that’s rich
Our world is quiet
Where no one can find us
And all the pieces fit

You keep my heart open
You keep me knowing
You hold my heart it seems

You make me laugh
You never hold back
You hold my heart it seems

You make me cry
You make me high
You hold my heart it seems

Our world is small
Behind these walls
But we live a life that’s rich
Our world is quiet
Where no one can find us
And all the pieces fit

You 're welcome & Thank you, dc1myheart. Smiling

Very lovely poem Happy Together. I like it very much. Thank you for your comments.

Use to Be

Use to be
You weren’t too far away
But I had my day
I would listen to the music
And dance around the room
I miss those days
I miss those days

Use to be it
Didn’t matter if it
Was sunshine or rain
I would hold back the pain
I miss those days
I miss those days

I can’t let go of the use to be
It holds me like an old friend
I can’t let of those old memories
I wish they’d come back again

Use to be it didn’t matter
If I was alone
Because I wasn’t afraid

Use to be I would cherish
Each day when all my
Best plans were made

I can’t let go of the use to be
It holds me like an old friend
I can’t let of those old memories
I wish they’d come back again

I can’t let go of the use to be
When I was free

I can’t let go of the use to be
It holds me like an old friend
I can’t let of those old memories
I wish they’d come back again
