The world as I see it,  cold,  sometimes you say this is my time, you say this now 
This metaphor of love games, this love me not, a mind play,  my time,  you say
Starlit paths all paved with gold laid out for the wandering soul,  my time,  you say
Careful now fragile is the glass inside the cave belonging to mine heart,  my time,  you say
Oh sparrow,  sparrow,  where for art thou gone? Spring seems far from our time to sing
The sidewalks line up to see me come,  cheer me on to hear my words,  my time has come
I turn to see am blinded by the crooked ways of passersby flaunting before my eyes,  my time
I scream,  I shout,  the words come out,  no rhyme,  no medleys nor reason,  cries become my time
The crowd roars with jeers and shoves at me,  my time,  you say  my time,  you say,  oh,  not mine 
I turn to run you pull one last time,  a stab at my pride,  you take once more,  my time,  my time
Raped by the warrior of smooth words and alibis for,  my time, again,  you say,  want has come
Timid is the moment when the words locked up wont come,  oppression grips at me,  for,  my time
Love is my weakness,  so it would seem  locked inside of me now just a dream buried,  no time
Lost melodies falling away down by the brook side,  sunset brings the darkness,  hurry no time
Keep waiting,  just keep waiting,  tomorrow,  there is always tomorrow,  for,  my time you say,  my time, my time... when.. is my time

Grooving to a New Beat

The most lyrical phrases enter my mind while I just be gazing at your eyes
Time has stopped for a moment picked me up spun me around set me on high
I count the minutes in the hours of each day looking forward to the beat,  the sway
You have me in such a starlit way, dancing, laughing, singing,  I can't deny
Oh how the groove of  mine heart beats a different tune, toes in the water, carried away
Pitter-patter goes the beat,  spitter-spatter go my feet, whoopys-daisy, I slide, slide,  slide
I'm falling down, down, down the path again, what a lovely feeling to know,  round midnight
I'm caught in the shadow of your smile,  the warm tender ways of you,  lost in you're eyes
It never entered my mind until the right time,  I found myself in a sentimental mood, oh yes
I had the medley, Jill Scott tune, Sade night, a little Maxwell to set it off,  oh,  "After the Rain"  Coltrane
Then I realized I could not run anymore, you caught me, words, songs,  phrases,  I am undone
I am a soul seeker of the same,  a lover of love,  the wisdom of my youth breathes in me, longs to be
With you I feel alive mesmerized, on a distant high,  liquid jazz flowing through me as I swim this maze
The sky is colors I have never seen before,  purples reds and lavender,  hush now,  don't wake me please

"You" Gave Me My" Beautiful" Back

You gave me back my beautiful,  beautiful you oh so smooth with your words of poetry and jazz, my love's desire
My clouds are gone my grays are blue and how I smile is because of you, beautiful true beautiful blue
So taken with the splendor of imagination I paint my words in the atmosphere of love, stain the paper,  eat them sometimes to savor
He thinks I'm beautiful, he thinks I'm beautiful oh,  how he says my name, twice he does twice he does
Mornings sound like Sade singing " Kiss of Life" and nights like Coltrane, "The Shadow of Your Smile"
Yes you gave me my beautiful back, my hands twitch and my step is light, my eyes so bright, I'm blinded
The sun so shines on me, the moon follows me the stars twinkle at me,  oh yes you gave me my beautiful
How I looked before I do not remember,  I know I cast a magic spell,  must have done it very well,  yes, yes.
Oh I see how this is meant to be looking straight at me,  Mr. beautiful has cast his glare on me thats why I shine.
He is the "mirror " "mirror" on the wall thinks I'm the fairest of them all, wants to pull me in his dream with a magic seam.
All my smiles he made, all my happiness he gave, yes it's true I owe it all to you Mr. beautiful, oh do tell...
This story very well plays out nicely I can see,  for you gave me my beautiful back,  my heart is full, overflowing
Thank You for giving me my beautiful back sealing up the cracks, washing away all my empty days
Thank You for giving me my beautiful back walking with me step by step creating promises to be kept
It is the spring time of  my love just beginning when I hear your voice,  you,  gave this beautiful back

You Touch Me

The way you touch me is just the beginning of a symphony, a rare orchestra of jazz infinity touching me
The way you touch me is like the sun caressing me as I bath in the beauty there of you touching me
The way you touch me is like honey to a bee, flowers in the wake of spring,  my blossoms touching thee
The way you touch me I wonder in awe at it all, the manor in which your hands reach to touch only me
The way you touch me with your eyes seeing all I cannot hide, oh how you touch me,  deep you touch me
The way you touch me is like a melody of whispers hushed in my ear, sweet savor upon my skin drenched
The way you touch me is like the wind blowing through my hair, I feel you though you are not here, touching me.
You touch me like no other, like rain on a hot august day,  like the fine wine and rose' the smell of lavender and peonies.
You touch me in ways that matter, I walk in grace because I want you to touch me, my days  are full of dreams of you touching me.
You touch me I tremble,  you touch me and I smile,  you touch me and I begin to melt, with such ease you have me,  touching you.
The way you touch me, is a tale of two lovers in the dark meeting vicariously, but falling in love forever
The way you touch me is warm, tender, slow, easy, never forsaking my heart, the way you touch me

A Melody Of Love

The sound awakens my ears as a melody of love is cascading down my veins
Tender is the sound of whispering love upon my neck,  lush echos of faded time
Drenched in a crimson sun set,  bathed in a warm caress,  love is taken,  tenderness
Fields of grasses line the plains as we lay and make our love,  basking in the heat above
I open to you like water to earth drinking you in,  you part my lips to taste of me,  divine
Sounds of music fill the air as essence fuels with care,  the lovers bed of majestic love
My spring in winter you are to me,  a field of ever blooming indigo,  Oh how I marvel
A mid summers night,  hot in july melding together as one,  never to depart,  you are to me
Oh melodious sound so sweet,  sing unto my ears as now you take me unto you my love
Doves hover early morning as we lay,  the dew still wet,  hushing me with your eyes,  we sleep

Thief Of Hearts

This day here for me how can it be I see not the readiness of it all
Tarry longer night I pray,  lingering dreams stay,  my drifting mind sway
Sun is rising warming me caressing me against my flesh,  Oh far moon I cry
Amid the dreary hours of dawn I seek to hide from you,  longing to fall back
Trickery has cast it's ugly shadow on my fate finding me wounded,  now I lay
Pleasantries shared igniting the bed breaking down my walls,  captivating my time
Thievery of mine heart as lies you spoke while eating my soul,  Oh woe is me
Time and space can only know the realm of truth the anguish of whats become
The Mountain you are the River I am still calm beside you flowing,  yet in spirit,  apart
The great moon weeping fills her Earth watering inhabitants as a great flood of pain opens
Whispers carry your works to my ears,  dreams bring visions of you,  Oh I see everything
I have tasted you and become one with thee,  you can never hide,  lest I sever thee
How quickly doth the hour change,  Oh the stars go out one by one still they are many
Earth and all the beauty wakes each day and meets the Sun its glory,  tarry a while longer I pray

I Wait

A Great woe has entreneched upon my mind leaving a scar deep in my heart
Each night I cut out my heart yet morning finds it full again, the Sun enters
We are the Stars, Moon, Earth, and Sun, this, our universe belongs to you and I
My world spun on a cloud with wings for a time, laughter in the air, smiling
The places I allowed you into, the walls I broke down for you, sacred love
Tapestries of time, echoes of days, lingering memories forever staining my space
Like shards of glass fallen from the atmosphere dreams shattered, erased
Raindrops fall like blood squeezed from my veins, pain unceasing, why, such splendor
The beauty no ordinary love perfect, you took without mercy, loved me without knowing
Promises you made you broke, my days now long, cold no warmth from you to hold
Even as I watch you still becoming, you create and thus we two shall share, when
What we started can't be undone when meant to be, the stars dance for us, shine
My soul calls for you in the night like a lioness to her lion, waiting, preparing
Greatness is found and follows greatness, peace is love in the abyss of our kind
Yet my eyes leak like the great welkin filling the sea crashing upon the rocks, mighty
Forever, my love for thee my words are heard through eternity, giving rise to thee
I shall not forsake my love for thee, but wait patiently abiding in the light
