A Chilling Thought

A chilling thought occurred to me,
And it's weighing on my mind.
How would the world around me be
If your love wasn't blind?

The Lumberjack (2008)

You tell me you're no beauty queen
And say I must be blind.
You'd rather some things 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 -
But 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!

Longing (2008)

I think of you and parts of me
Always end up achin'.
'Tis cruel, indeed, that it should be
You, my dear, are taken!

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.

The Thorny Crown

You're clinging to the future,
Though the past has let you down.
So many wounds to suture,
Still you wear your thorny crown.
With pride that won't surrender
And a faith beyond compare,
You toil without splendor
Knowing love is waiting there.

A Question of the Heart (2013)

About that question of the heart,
I am no longer vexed.
If we should spend this life apart,
I'll still love you in the next!

He Said, She Said

She asked if he still loved her, and he said, "How could I not?
What, dear, would you have me do?"  She said,  "Please tell me a lot!"
