Everlasting Love



I have an everlasting love for you.
You can bet it all my love is true.
There is nothing I wouldn’t do since
I have an everlasting love for you.

When I think of all the girls I kissed,
and all the chances at love I missed,
I seem to get a little blue,
but then I see a smile from you
and remember a very special day
when there were promises to say
in the front of our family and friends.
Then the sad feelings end.
We are together, rich or poor,
and I can ask for nothing more
than an everlasting love.

I have an everlasting love for you.
You can bet it all my love is true.
There is nothing I wouldn’t do since
I have an everlasting love for you.

When I think of the times I was free
to be anything I wanted to be,
I couldn’t do them alone.
I needed to settle down at home
with someone to help guide the way.
Sometimes, it’s easy for me to stray
when strange thoughts fill my head,
and forget what I said.
Without you by my side, I’m poor
and I can ask for nothing more
than an everlasting love.

I have an everlasting love for you.
You can bet it all my love is true.
There is nothing I wouldn’t do since
I have an everlasting love for you.

If - Land

You shouldn’t live in If-Land,
Where some think their dreams grow.
Too many people live there already
Since they think there’s no where to go.
Full of guilt, many regret what they have done,
And wish for life where the grass will be
Greener and people have more fun.
Once in If-Land, the people search for 
Their lost youth.
No matter how long it takes, they will
Never find the truth
That they should move to When-Land.
Here decisions abound and goals are set.
People’s lives are not over yet,
And they are full of potential possibilities.
Individuals know who and what they
Can and will be. 
They see through the windows of opportunity.
The windows of If-Land are all mirrors and
The people reflect too much on what could have been
And what would have happened then….

I’m making the best of a bad situation



I’m making the best of a bad situation.

Secrets are whispered in the shadows
Of things that shouldn’t spoken out loud.
The strained smiles give me the feeling
That I just want to scream and shout.
I’m making the best of a bad situation.

There are things I wished I’d done, and
Given another chance, I think I would.
The past is water under the bridge, and 
I made decisions I thought I should.
I’m making the best of a bad situation.

Living involves constant challenges,
And the problems will never end.
Life’s journeys are worth the trip,
And it helps to travel with a friend.
We’re making the best of a bad situation.

Dream Queen

Dark Lady, empress of the night,
can make everything work out right.
You can get anything that you want,
but beware, you can’t get it free.
All manner of glory can be sought,
but you have to pay her fee, believe me.
They say making love to her is a sin,
but in her eyes, the journey just begins.
