Goodbye

On the memories of yesterday

O how I walked away

And now I stand with open arms

Theres nothing left to say

That couldn’t have been said anyway

Walk the road

Tell story that has be told

I wouldn’t have done it any other way

So with open arms

I say goodbye

Goodbye

To all Ive known , all Ive wanted

Everything that could see

Follow that road to nowhere

Where my dream could be

If just one moment in time

You would be mine

Id be right there by your side

Hold you tight

But right now

My dream escapes me

So with open arms

I say goodbye

Goodbye

To all Ive known , all Ive wanted

Everything that I could see

Follow the road to nowhere

Where my dream could be

The Mirror

THE KNOWING…
I see myself ten, maybe fifteen years from now, in quiet reflection as the rain pours down outside and white light flows through the windows making shadows of the droplets of water running down them.

My hair is short again though not straight and black and my posture is more magnanimous, I’m relaxed and have grown into myself in a way that’s quite inspired, overcome the arrogance that dominated my character in my youth and I feel the ease and gentleness of a soul that understands peace.

I’m painting, though it feels more like meditation. A portrait of an old friend from memory and my eyes embrace the beauty of tall and deep green asiatic plants and the rich tapestry of sensual perfume from their flowers as I turn in response to the invitation of a familiar voice.

And that comfort happens, the knowing I knew, ripples down my back as I recall that time I already saw this,in vision from the void, Though in this time such things are commonplace and we even have a new word for it, where we even still use words that is. And as your smile warms me I know that you sense it too.

The quietude and serenity of a cool breeze humbles itself on your lips, taunts me as if I should be envious and then it’s left. And I’m in wonderment for a moment as to how we came to be here, as if I were a distant unfamiliar old self for a time.
