Today I Am Happy

It’s been a great day
It started with song
That beautiful sound
Of my morning alarm

I got to see friends
Whizzing by on the street
On my daily commute
To that place that we meet

You know the place
We have a daily invite
A card that we stamp
To get our paycheck just right

Only eight hours today
Please say that you jest
I’ll stay here forever
I don’t need rest

Then time to go home
Greeted by babes
The sweet furry kind
That tore up my drapes

Today I am happy
I awoke from my sleep
With a job to support me
And loved ones to greet

Set My Heart Free

The air is so humid
But I’m still so cold
It lingers inside me
These icicles of loneliness
Encasing my heart
It’s a frozen shield
I’ve designed to protect
From further pain
But to shut out the hurt
You must also block out
All the simple pleasures
Like a baby’s smile
And sweet roses in bloom
I can only be whole again
To seek what life offers
When the radiance of your presence
Melts these chains
And sets my heart free

Heart On My Sleeve

1-
I hide it all inside
Yet my heart is on my sleeve
Just look into my eyes
And see all that is me

I want to hide from you
And try to bury me
I don’t care what you do
I can always lie to me

Chorus-
About a future that will stay
A horizon that won’t change
A road that will run true
No twisting turning lanes

I need some solid ground
Underneath my feet
And I long for the day
That my heart’s not on my sleeve

2-
This passion that I feel
For the life that I can’t see
Gets harder to contain
Because I want it all for me

The day will come I hope
When I’ll be free to dream
And I won’t be so afraid
And I finally can believe

Repeat Chorus-

Dig

1-
Damaged people loving people
Because we all have our secrets
People turn from damaged people
Because they all have their secrets

You can’t help me, I can’t save you
I can’t change me, but I want to
Look beneath this tattooed armor
You will find a man of honor

But you have to dig…

Chorus-
My mother never loved me
My father never tried
I don’t like the way you cry
When you can’t tell me why

Vicious is this cycle
We’re all caught up in the lies
Can you tell me why…

2-
People search for damaged people
A kindred spirit they can cling to
Damaged people they can’t trust you
Are your secrets all that hold you

Let me love you, I can’t love you
Let me trust you, I don’t need you
Let me hold you, you can’t touch me
Don’t give up please, you can find me

But you have to dig…

Repeat Chorus-

Be Honest With Me

Please always be honest with me no matter what the cost
Although it may hurt my feelings, at least my respect won’t be lost
If you’ll be big enough to tell me exactly what’s on your mind
I’ll be big enough to take it, please don’t leave me blind
I always know when something’s wrong, when things are not quite right
But don’t expect me to read your mind, for me, please shed some light
Don’t try to make it easy on me by denying how you feel
Because then I’d never forgive you, that wound would never heal
If you find that you must hurt me, my disappointment may be deep
But I would soon get over it if allowed my dignity to keep
Please don’t ever tell me lies, or the truth, don’t try to hide
If you’re always honest with me, you’ll keep a friend there by your side

Oh Heavenly Father

Oh heavenly Father, my only friend
Please hear my cries above the din
I am lost and all alone
I need a hand to guide me home
I no longer have the will to fight
Drenched in darkness, I see no light
Oh heavenly Father please hear my plea
Won’t you come and rescue me
From the depths of gloom where I now dwell
My life on earth is now my hell
Give me strength, please take my hand
And lead me to your promised land
Oh heavenly Father, full of love
Grant me mercy from up above
Forever quiet all my cries
And wipe the teardrops from my eyes
Take me to a place so bright
I never again will fear the night
Oh heavenly Father whose love runs deep
In your arms I’ll forever sleep

I Miss You

You said to write something happy
But the words, they just won’t come
All I know is that I miss you
All I know is that I’m alone
So how can I be joyful
When you’re so far away
For all I want is to hold you
All I want is for you to stay
So forgive me if I’m not happy
As these words flow from my pen
A smile will never cross my lips
Until I chance to see you again

The Sea

The kind restless sea
It calls out to me
And invites me into it’s depths
The ocean, it hears
My falling tears
And soft sprays wash them away
Against rocks it railed
As I loudly wailed
It’s rage was great at my pain
The waves wildly crashed
Because my hope was dashed
And in sympathy it pounded the sand
With sorrow it churns
As my heart yearns
And I know that we are as one
It welcomes me home
Now I’m not alone
And the sea pulls me under the waves

Secrets

I have my secrets you’ll never see
But if you knew, you’d understand me
For I don’t act like you’d expect
I see things different from all the rest
I live my life the way I choose
From my experience I draw my views
I’m not shaped the way you are
Because of secrets I travel far
Outside the norm, my life is shrouded
Although mysterious, my vision’s not clouded
So don’t feel bad if you can not see
The things I do and you misjudge me
I’m now resigned to the way things go
I’m often doubted but I won’t show
That I do care about what you think
You’ll never know I’m on the brink
Of falling apart most every day
My secrets hurt and they’re here to stay
They’ve made me what I am right now
I can not change but I will not bow
My head in defeat, I will go on
Although it’s hard without someone
Who understands my heart’s not free
That my secrets are a part of me
