Happy Easter, Baby!

Not every step we take is clean,
We've stumbled one or twice.
There's never been an in between,
For love, we've paid a price.

When I see footprints in the sand,
I mind not all the sores.
And even if things aren't as planned,
I can smile 'cuz I'm yours!

I really don't know why to you
I say the things I say.
Same is true of the things I do
That hurt you every day.

Perhaps, the fact you are not mine
Is more than I can bear,
And every time I say I'm fine
I'm wishing I were there.

The Lumberjack

You tell me you're no beauty queen.
You say I must be blind.
You'd rather somethings go unseen
And hope that I don't mind.

But you know what you do to me,
If not, you should, my dear.
I'm wanting you - that's plain to see -
Though why you're still not clear.

You won't believe you are the cause,
As if you ever could.
You speak to me about your flaws,
While I'm here getting wood!

Still Waiting

Through everything, I'm by your side,
Long past the great debating.
My arms, as always, open wide,
Heart and soul...still waiting.

The Head of State

Once as strong as old Niagara,
Today he's pretty limp!
Might a pinch of Dole's Viagra
Rejuvenate the wimp?

Edna's Folly

I hear your palace on the sand
Has drifted out to sea:
That ugly house upon the rock
Is good enough for me!

For a Couple of Hours

For a couple of hours,
I held the world in my arms.
A hug, a kiss, the joys of love!

For a couple of hours.
Time stopped and there was only you.

I held the world in my arms,
As my world is you,
If only for a couple of hours.
