BLESS

BLESSED ARE THEY THAT KNOW OF THEE

THEY THAT KNOW OF THEE ARE FREE

TO PURSUE, TO GAIN, TO HAVE SUCCESS,

TO LIE TO CHEAT AND THEN CONFESS

TO THEIR GUILT THAT SETS THEM FREE

OH,      BLESSED     ARE     THEY     THAT      K NOW     O F       THEE

 


MY ANGEL

YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL
I DON’T BELIEVE YOU’RE REAL
YOU TOUCHED  ME  DEEPLY
YOU KNOW HOW I FEEL?
DIFFERENT, I WANT TO SEE YOU
AGAIN AND  AGAIN
NEVER TO LIVE WITHOUT
ONLY WITHIN
WHO ARE YOU
WHERE DO YOU BELONG
ARE YOU THE AIR I BREATHE?
THE LYRICS TO A SONG?
ARE YOU THE PHYSICAL INCARNATION
OF MY VERY FRAGILE SPIRIT?
IF I AM YOU THEN I KNOW
THERE  IS MERIT
TO MY BEING

CONFIDENCE

 THE CAT CLIMBED UP TO THE TOP OF THE TREE

HE BEAT HIS CHEST AND SAID, “I AM A MONKEY”

AND SO HE SWUNG FROM TREE TO TREE

MEOWING VERY MERRILY

UNTIL HE LANDED ON THIS LIMB

WHERE THE WISE OLD OWL SAID TO HIM

“WHAT A FOOL, YOU’RE JUST A CAT”

SO DOWN HE FELL , AND THAT WAS THAT
