My Quote For Today

When you find yourself asking, “Where is the love?”, that’s your cue to show it. It’s your duty. You have it in you. You must now lead, and show it. And give it. It is the greatest gift you can give.

Namaste

BRING ON THE RAIN

I don’t know why I love you

When you treat me like you do

And I don’t know why

I’d ever let my heart lie to me

And maybe you and I see things differently

Bring on the rain

Bring on the rain

Let it rain down on me

Let it soothe my pain

And maybe my heart will set me free

Bring on the rain

I don’t know why I let you get to me

And maybe I should let you be

But you cast such a spell

That places me between heaven and hell

No resentment for being such a glutton for punishment

Bring on the rain

Bring on the rain

Let it rain down on me

Let it soothe my pain

And maybe my heart will set me free

Bring on the rain

Treat me like a dog and call my name

And I’ll keep coming back again

Bring on the rain

Bring on the rain

Let it rain down on me

Let it soothe my pain

And maybe my heart will set me free

Bring on the rain

Chalk it all up to love

As long as the stars are above

It’s nothing new, I love you

What could I ever say?

It’s the same thing everyday

Bring on the rain

Bring on the rain

Let it rain down on me

Let it soothe my pain

And maybe my heart will set me free

Bring on the rain

WILDFLOWER

First things first

I’m just outspoken-I’m not bad

In my life I just have a thirst

Ever since I was born under a moon that was mad

And my dear mama

Knew I was too much to handle

Compared to my darling papa

He could not hold a candle

Wildflower

My mother said to me

Wildflower

So much energy of unbridled power

Wildflower

Wait until you grow up and see

Wildflower

I’m just a wildflower

My friends would come

To have a drink

It may not have been all, but some

Would have to stop and think

If I went off in my way

Behind the laughter and the tears

I always knew the right things to say

Because like a fine wine, I get better through the years

Wildflower

My mother said to me

Wildflower

So much energy of unbridled power

Wildflower

Wait until you grow up and see

Wildflower

I’m just a wildflower

You must let me submit to all my eccentricities

And how it pleases me

It’s just how I am

And I just don’t give a damn

Wildflower

My mother said to me

Wildflower

So much energy of unbridled power

Wildflower

Wait until you grow up and see

Wildflower

I’m just a wildflower

Then one day I met a new flame

She was so calming and soothing

And she thought that this lion she could tame

It really was very moving

Until I took her out

And we drank and danced for days

And I showed her what life’s all about

She’ll tell you I’m crazy, but I don’t care what she says

I’m a wildflower

A vision of beauty

Some say a cutie

I may lack in humbleness

But I will address

And say it to your face

I may be a basket case

But that’s a wildflower

Wildflower

My mother said to me

Wildflower

So much energy of unbridled power

Wildflower

Wait until you grow up and see

Wildflower

I’m just a wildflower

And now I am old

And I live in home

But I’m not cold

Cause in these halls I roam

And I sing and dance

And flirt with the old ladies if I get the chance

And I still rant and I rave

Life, love, and happiness, I still crave

Wildflower

My mother said to me

Wildflower

So much energy of unbridled power

Wildflower

Now I’ve grown up and I see

I’m a wildflower

I’m just a wildflower

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

SPEECHLESS

I hear the birds whispering from the trees

I see the fireflies communicating in Morse code

I feel the vibrations down to my knees

This feeling that I have is such a heavy load

The words can’t come out of my mouth quite right

It doesn’t seem to matter at how hard I try

I swing and I miss when I stand up and fight

And that’s the furthest from a lie

Speechless

I’ve just fallen speechless

When I’m around you

There are no words

For these wonderful feelings that I feel

That leave me speechless

On the tip of my tongue

At the edge of my lips

I’m speechless

Speechless darling

Only speechless

Speechless

I’m looking for something that isn’t there

But I know it’s right in front of me

I know for a fact it happens to be right here

It’s a warm love of you that I see

I could write a thousand words and still leave a blank page

I could talk and talk for hours and not say anything

It just seems to be so strange

This power over me that you bring

Speechless

That renders me speechless

When I’m around you

I just can’t describe

All these wonderful feelings

That leave me speechless

Left in the back of my throat

Lost in my mind

I’m speechless

Speechless darling

Only speechless

Speechless

I will carry on

I will continue

I’m just an artist who cannot paint

The right picture that I see

There aren’t enough colors on the palette

Speechless

I’ve just fallen speechless

When I’m around you

I’ve lost my voice

I’ve searched my mind

That leave me speechless

For the words that I cannot find

That express just how I feel

I’m speechless

Speechless darling

Only speechless

Speechless

Can you hear my voice in my smile?

Can you see the words in my eyes?

Speechless

Only you my love

Speechless

There aren’t enough words to describe how I feel

So I’m left speechless

Speechless
