You are the wave
That washed me
Into your sea
Taking me away
Into your Love
Showing me
What you are

You are the Love

You are the one

ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?

.

.

..

“ever  dance  with  the  devil
in  the  pale  moonlight ?”

.

whispers  on  the  wind
rushing  toward  me  through  the  trees

.

an  invitation ?
or  a  dare ?

.

“ever  dance  with  one
so  fair  as  i ?”

.

said  with  my  arrogance  held  high
for  never  was  i  wont  to  show  a  trace  of  fear

.

blacker  than  the  night
yet  hotter  than  the  noonday  sun
he  held  me  close  and  tight

.

round  and  round  and  round  again  we  spun
’til  tornadoes  and  cyclones  were  birthed
while  thunder  and  lightning  roiled  across  the  sky

.

my  spine  rigid
my  resolve  firm
i  gave  no  quarter
and  stayed  my  feet

.

dawn  approached
demanding  that  he  concede

.

grudgingly  sparing  my  life  that  night
and,  yes,  my  very  soul  for  all  eternity

to  one  so  well-matched  in  determination  as  he

“Bad Moon Rising”   Creedence Clearwater Revival

lyrics ~

I see the bad moon rising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightnin’.
I see bad times today.
.
Don’t go around tonight.
Well, it’s bound to take your life.
There’s a bad moon on the rise.
.
I hear hurricanes ablowing.
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers overflowin’.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.
.
Don’t go around tonight.
Well, it’s bound to take your life.
There’s a bad moon on the rise.
All right!
.
Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like we’re in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.
.
Well, don’t go around tonight.
Well, it’s bound to take your life.
There’s a bad moon on the rise.
.
Don’t go around tonight.
Well, it’s bound to take your life.
There’s a bad moon on the rise.

i  was standing still

in a time dulled by shades of  gray

and shadows of  loneliness

until came the day  you looked into me

love pouring  forth  from  your eyes

warming  me with its  glow

suddenly,  i  perceived the world

bright and color-filled

blues ~ reds ~ greens ~ yellows

no longer muted

incandescent and  joyful

you transformed my life

into a dream become our reality

i  have naught to  give  you in return

but  all  of  me

if  we are weary
we can sometimes see
the glow of  an angel’s wings
wrapped  ’round us
when we are all alone

if  we are heartbroken
we can sometimes taste
the angels’  tears
mixed with our own

in a summer rain

if  we act with kindness
we can sometimes feel
an angel’s kiss
warm and sweet

upon our cheek

and if  we are very still
we can sometimes hear
the music of  the angels
playing softly

in our hearts
