SURPRISES

Its no surprise

That every day

My sun will rise

And it’s no surprise

That when you caught my eye

I fell

In love with you

It was no surprise

That you had all the attention

Of all the other guys

I didn’t want to mention

But you fell

For me too

You surprise me

Everyday

You surprise me

In every way

And I’ve fallen

In love with you

Today you surprised me

When you showed up at my door

But it’s no surprise

How you leave me wanting more

And I know what’s in my heart

Is you

You surprise me

All the time

You surprise me

How you’re all mine

And I

Love how you

Continue to surprise me

This beating heart

Is just one part

Of how you make me feel

And how this love

Is real

But it’s really no surprise

That it’s you

You surprise me

Everyday

You surprise me

In every way

And I’ve fallen

In love with you

It’s no surprise

How you you make me smile

And make me open up my eyes

And just stay a little while

Just a little longer

And let me

Love you

You are such a surprise

When I didn’t think

I could meet anyone

Like you

Now let me please

Return the favor

And surprise you

You surprise me

Everyday

You surprise me

In every way

And I’ve fallen

In love with you

And I’ve fallen

In love with you

My Little Sermon For Today

My god, what are we becoming? What have we become? Are we really making America great? Are we making the world great? For ourselves, for our children, for our children’s children’s children? The hatred. The lies. So much pain. What happened to being a true leader and caring for all? Where is the moral compass that points to values and integrity? Leading by example. Never stop caring, my fellow babies. Never stop being kind. Never stop showing compassion. Never stop loving, my fellow babies. We’re only here once perhaps. Take care of the earth. Take care of all creatures great and small. Take care of each other. Take care of yourself. May peace find you and be with you always. Let love rule in your hearts and minds. Wear it on your sleeve.

I love you

Namaste

THIS IS OUR LIFE

I can tell by that look in your eye

That you want to go again

I’m so glad I’m not the only one

To hop on this flight

And aim right for the heart of the sun

I can smile back at you

From across this table sipping wine

Thinking about what I’d really like to do

Just waiting for a sign from you

This a life

This is our life

Of a long and lasting love

It’s always our greatest days

I want to kiss you

Hold and love you

This is the life

The life of love

I want to ride this merry-go-round with you

I want to paint outside the lines

I want to jump in every mud puddle with you

I want to see Europe

Maybe even try caviar

I just want to be your king

I just want you to be my queen

Everything else doesn’t mean a thing

I want to grow old with you

Until we have to live on the first floor

Cause you know… Stairs.

And fall asleep in each other’s arms

This a life

This a life of us

Of long and lasting years

Living our greatest days

I want to kiss you

Hold and love you as much as we can

This is the life

The life of love

This is our life

This is the life for us

I want to hold you

I want to hold you for the rest of my life

All through the day

And all through the nights

This is our life

LOVE LINE

I’m holding on

Hold on

To this love line

I’ll always give you

Giving you this

Love line

A love after first sight

Can bring reality to light

Love can have growing pains

But even the sun comes back out after it rains

You’re my first and you’re my last

For better, or for worse

You’re my future, you’re my past

It’s a blessing and a curse

I’m holding on

Hold on

To this love line

I’ll always give you

Giving you this

Love line

And I just want you to know

That I want our love to grow

Just like a flower has to bloom

So we could be a bride and groom

Don’t give up on me

I’m trying my damndest

I put all my stock in you

And now I want to see it through

I’m holding on

Hold on

To this love line

I’ll always give you

Giving you this

Love line

Don’t give up on me

I believe, I believe in us

I know it takes a lot

But we have to give all we got

I tried for today

And I’ll try for tomorrow

Maybe in a different way

Time which I’ll beg, steal, or borrow

I’m holding on

Hold on

To this love line

I’ll always give you

Giving you this

Love line

I’m feeling very insecure

I just need your reassurance

That you believe in our chance

Of that which I’m sure

That there’s something here

That’s worth keeping

And overcome a fear

And awaken a love that is sleeping

I’m holding on

Hold on

To this love line

I’ll always give you

Giving you this

Love line

Giving you this love line

I’m giving you this love line

This love line

DO YOU FEEL LIKE HEAVEN?

There’s a golden light

That shines down on you

And it shines on me too

Whether it’s day or night

And it’s so warm when it holds me

Just like when you do

It makes me feel so free

Does it do that to you too?

I can breathe the clean air so deep

It makes me feel like I can fly

I can take this giant leap

My, oh, my

Do you feel like heaven?

Isn’t it all great?

This surely must be

What heaven feels like to me

Doesn’t it feel so great?

My, oh, my

Isn’t it just so divine?

I am yours and you are mine

Whenever I hear your voice

It’s just like a chorus

If I have any doubts and fears

Your calming voice is music to my ears

And when I look deep into your eyes

I get so deep and lost

No alibis

It’s just the cost

Of being so free in love

My, oh, my

Do you feel like heaven?

Isn’t it all great?

This surely must be

What heaven feels like to me

Doesn’t it feel so great?

My, oh, my

May this feeling

Never escape me

That keeps reeling

Back to you

I want to be together

With you and only you

Now and forever

That’s what I want to do

My, oh, my

My, oh, my

Do you feel like heaven?

Isn’t it all great?

This surely must be

What heaven feels like to me

Doesn’t it feel so great?

My, oh, my

A love like ours only comes round once in a lifetime

We can’t squander it one bit

Cause I want you around a long, long time

Our loves a song and it’s a hit

No one else could make me feel so alive

No one else can make me feel so good

It’s a long beautiful road to enjoy this ride

And that’s the way our love should

All of our days and nights are long

There’s no way we can get it wrong

When we keep smiling

My, oh, my

Do you feel like heaven?

Isn’t it all great?

This surely must be

What heaven feels like to me

Doesn’t it feel so great?

My, oh, my

My, oh, my

It’s just heaven

My, oh, my

When I’m with you

My, oh, my

It’s simply heaven with you

Do you feel it too?

It’s just like heaven

My, oh, my

Doesn’t it feel like heaven?

My, oh, my

Don’t you feel it too?

Do you

Feel like

Heaven?

Like I do

MOTHER’S DAY

Mother

You fed me when I was hungry

And you gave me a bounty to fatten me up for when the days became lean

Mother

You sheltered me from storms

And then pushed me out when the skies were clear and the weather was warm

Always hoping I would come back to you from time to time

Whether or not if the weather was fine

Mother

You have my love and respect

And for that, I love and respect all that is dear to you

Mother

I return the care that you have given to me

I return those cherished things to you

Mother

I know sometimes it isn’t easy

And I am still your child

And I have learned from you

And the greatest gift I can give back to you and unto others

Is everything I get from you

I love you

My dear sweet mother

For I am from you

And all that you do

Happy Mother’s Day

From me

From all of us

Your children

To you
