Almost Persuaded Silent Memories

I feel cold

Hand in hand

A chilling winter breeze

As we walk

Through this strange and foreign land

I feel the warm summer sand

As we walk

Hand in hand

I feel alone

As if in

A strange or distant land

Strangers in paradise

Living in a dream

A dream called reality

As strange as it may seem

Born to be lovers

But time was giving not

Time to share feelings

Love I knew not

Empty and hollow

A shell within a shell

Wounded by Cupid's arrow

My heart began to swell

Empty and down hearted

Feeling so blue

Thinking about dreams

Do they ever come true?

Thinking, wishing, looking afar

The lady of my dreams

I wonder who you are

Thinking, wishing, looking afar

The lady of my dreams

Comes from a distant star

My dreams are set in heaven

That's when they're said to come true

My dreams are deep beyond

The deep celestial blue

I'm wishing, and praying

My dreams come true

I'm looking, and waiting

For an angel like you

Thinking, wishing, looking afar

Thinking, wishing, upon this one star

Thinking, wishing, looking afar

Clouds do gather

To hide my star

Clouds so white

They change the light

They change the course of day

Clouds so white

Do hide the light

They take my beautiful star away

Thinking, wishing, looking afar

Thinking, wishing, upon this one star

Thinking, wishing, looking afar

Clouds do gather

To hide my star

Clouds of wonder

Change to thunder

They change the course of day

Clouds of wonder

Change to thunder

They help wash my tears away

Strangers in paradise

Living in a dream

A dream called reality

As strange as it might seem

Born to be lovers

But time was giving not

The time to know feelings

Love I knew not

Empty and down hearted

Wondering what to do

Thinking about dreams

Can they ever come true?

Come to the land of make believe

Come and dream with me

Welcome to the land of make believe

Dream about happiness

For you and for me

Come to the land of make believe

Come pretend with me

Welcome to the land of make believe

And be whatever you want to be

"Make me believe

I'm bride, your groom

I just can't wait

For the honeymoon"

"Let's pretend we're husband and wife

With you I've chosen

To spend my life"

Strangers in paradise

Living in a dream

Strangely like a nightmare

This is what it seemed

Torn between lovers

But time was given not

Time to know true feelings

Her love I knew not

Empty and down hearted

Broken in Two

Can't stop thinking

About the memories of you

Empty and down hearted

Sad and lonely too

Life called living

Living without you

Empty and heart broken

Sad it's true

Can't stop thinking

About the love I never knew

Even though we were lovers

And we had made all these plans

We were separated by another

A man from a distant land

Almost Persuaded

Words thought out loud

I think it's about time

To come from under this cloud

Clouds so white

That did hide the light

Now seem to have all gone away

The sun a risen

Beyond the horizon

It looks like

A brand new day

Thinking about dreams

Do they ever come true?

I believe they do

For me and for you

But I'm using my head

I know what to do

I've got to know

Just who is who

To know me

Is to love me

A silent thought

That won't go away

To know me

Is to love me

Just might make this

A better day

Your Eyes Tell The Story

Soft and tender

Gentle as the wind blows

The words I hear

Are foreign to me

They always sound like no

But this can't be

Please say it's not so

I love you too much

To hear the words no

My love is like a flower

It grows and grows and grows

Bigger than the forest

Taller than the tallest of trees

Your love means too much to me

Even in comparison to these

You never told me

No you never said it was so

So tell me plainly

Please let me know

Your eyes tell the story

I want to hear

Your eyes speak the message

That's pleasing to my ear

Your eyes are the windows

Which guards the secrets to your soul

Your eyes say "I Love You"

This I want to be told

I hate it when I hear it

It always sounds the same

The words may change

But the meaning stays the same

Countless calls on the telephone

I've never talked to you

No you're not home

I stopped by your house

Times too many

Just to see the one

I love Plenty

I knew you were home

This I felt was true

Oh no not again

I just missed you

My vocabulary is giant

Its words I've come to know

Take for instance the word "Busy"

It's just one of many that I know

No is not yes

I know it's not so

No really hurts

Because no means no

Everyday is Like Yesterday Reflections of you

Everyday is like yesterday

Love birds sing

As they build their nest

The love you bring

Builds peace and happiness

Enjoying my days

Of holding you tight

Love filled days

Turn into nights

Joy and Gladness

Plot the course for the day

Joy and Gladness

Found happiness along the way

Tender is the moment

We both felt so dear

Quiet is the hour

We pulled each other near

Beautiful are the nights

We never wanted to end

The sharing and the giving

Where did it all disappear

Everyday is like the day before

Remembering the days

Of holding you tight

Cloud filled days

Turn rainy at night

My day and night

My sun and moon

Nothing so precious

Should end so soon

Love once new

Now is old

Remembrance of you

Now is cold

Joy and Gladness

Have each gone their way

Pain and sadness

Is the course for the day

Tomorrow was the promise

Spoken words which fell amiss

Words spoken ever so softly

The promise given with a kiss

Everyday is like tomorrow

Broken promises

That were never meant to be

Wasted effort

On someone who never loved me

Yesterday is like today

And today like tomorrow

Tomorrow is like the day that's

Always two more days away

Time is so precious

Don't let it slip away

Remembrance of tomorrow

Let it be a better day

I Can't Find the Words That Say I Love You

Beautiful as the setting sun

Even more so I would say

I like to think good things of you

It's how I pass my time away

Refreshing as a springtime rain

It's your smile I like most of all

I like you when you're mad

I like you when you're sad

But most of all

I like your smiling face

It's what makes me glad

Warm as a summer's night

And you light up my day

You're on my mind day and night

You're never too far away

I want you to know what I feel inside

Please help me find the way

I'll keep on writing until "I Do"

Just to pass the time of day

Lovely like a moon lit sky

Lovely each and every day that goes by

More colorful than an autumn afternoon

You're all it's many shades

Flying high like a butterfly it's you

Living in this world of change

As a tender leaf floating gently through the wind

This is how I like to think of you

I Can't Find The Words That Say

Just what I feel for you

Never cold

You're everything in every way

This is closest to what I'm trying to say

It's how I feel about you

Every single day
