My spirit emerged from destruction unleashed By deception, betrayal and loss It took flight in search for its injured soul And a place to find solace A web was woven around me Strands circling, sparkling silver Slowly, methodically, pieces of me Were torn away forever A spark, a fire, grew within me Heat shattered illusion, pretense Ashes blew in all directions Smoldering, burning intense My soul awash in these raging seas But determined to find it's way home Then I found you, heart so full My spirit recovered it's soul Your kindness... A balm to my wounds Your Spirit... A calming presence I did not expect this gift from you Safe harbor that's shared by two Your smile... Brings joy to my heart Your eyes.. Like sunshine on water I did not expect you'd feel so true And give me safe harbor with you We cannot predict what winds will do When they blow across the water We may need to restore both spirit and soul And hold on to each other

Increasing altitude in my flight I have no one and that's alright Excess baggage left behind I choose how to spend my time Tipping my wings from right to left Wind in my hair, no safety net Exhilaration filling me Brave new world for me to see I'm flying solo, I do as I please I'm flying solo, no stopping me I'm flying solo, I do as I please I'm flying solo, Yes I am free No one shooting darts at me With venomous eyes to silence me Dancing wild, busting moves Got no one to stop my grooves Laughing 'til my shoulders ache I'm with no one, make no mistake Clear skies ahead are all I see No one now to tread on me Home again in Puget Sound Water and mountains is where I'm found Energy building, bursting high Riding currents in the sky

Early in the morning dear While you were sleeping near Sunshine slipped through the window blinds Dancing upon me; inviting me outside I kissed you softly; let you go It felt so good to know You would be here when I returned to you To hold me close and whisper "I love you" In my mind I saw your face A tender smile; a warn embrace Every time I walked through your front door I could not ask for any more I stepped into the morning sun Like a child having fun Wandered beaches; saw some views Of Olympic Mountains with granite hues As I walked on rocky shores Overhead an eagle soared A good omen or so I'm told Our story together yet to unfold The morning sun rose high in the sky It was time to say goodbye To morning dew on spider's web And to tracks where deer had tread

On our way to Jack Hyde Park Just might stay until dark Bar-B-Queing in the air Boats trolling off somewhere At the sun dial enjoy a view Of ships, sailboats and kayaks too Climb up on the emerald knoll Folks below us take a stroll Summer breezes from the bay Whisper softly please do stay Gaze up into azure sky Listen to the seagulls cry Grass is greener At Jack Hyde Park On a summer’s day On Ruston Way The park is open until dark We can stay until The daylight fades away Rolling waves rush to the shore Rhythms soothe and restore Children laughing with no bounds Barking dogs and splashing sounds Lazy clouds drift on by Train whistle blows – babies cry Lay beside me on this hill Just for a moment, let’s be still

I know I'm not perfect with words that I say I know I'm not perfect each and every day I may say some stupid things that can be takin' wrong I may not think enough before my mouth moves on and on Sometimes I speak before I've thought the words completely through Sometimes my mouth gets moving which may upset you I realize I make mistakes not intending to And say something that makes you very sad or blue Need you to know I mean you no pain Need you to know I'll try not to do it again Need your trust, I think I'm gaining ground Need your faith, that I would never fool around Please believe me when I say to you Please believe me when I say it's true That you are the only one that's in my heart and mind That I would never hurt you and would always remain kind Need you to know I mean you no harm Need you to know I love to hold you in my arms Need your trust, I think I'm gaining ground Need your faith, that I would never fool around You really are the only one that's in my heart and mind Believe me when I say to you that I'll always remain kind I need you to have faith in me that I'll never let you down I need you to trust me that I'll never fool around

Heaven by Rand Holiday 1980 (RIP) Whisper, I can hear voices near We must not let them know we are here In the night, nobody knows are name We must remain hidden 'til angels take our hand We can say we tried to go on forever No one stands in our way with a chance we make it...to heaven Hurry, I can here footsteps near We must not let them capture our fears In the night, nobody knows our name We must remain hidden until angels take our hand We can say we tried to go on forever No one stands in our way with a chance we make it...to heaven...to heaven...

The door opened at the turn of my key With my hand on the door knob, I peeked in to see; No one inside now, only a view Of endearing traces of you   Remains of daylight Lingered here Traces of you made My heart smile dear Making it feel like You’re always near   Your favorite hat rests on a chair You probably think it’s lost somewhere Thoughts of you looking hither and yon Your baseball cap is not really gone   On the fireplace mantel are pictures of two Taken while we were dancing me and you A smile on your face - your arm around me Both of us happy anyone can see   On the table are daffodils Fragrance now almost nil Although blooms have faded some Memories I’ll have for years to come

"Simple Love Song" by Johnny Burgess You know this is little song about my baby You know this is simple love song 'bout my baby Look into her eyes and I can see She's the one for me Gaze into her smile and I can see She's the only one for me You know this is little song about my baby You know this is simple love song 'bout my baby Look into her mind and I just know She's the smartest girl I've found One of a kind, and I just know She's the smartest girl in town You know this is little song about my baby You know this is simple love song 'bout my baby Look into her life I realize She's had her ups and downs And when I see her exercising I know that she's not fooling 'round You know this is little song about my baby You know this is simple love song 'bout my baby Look into your eyes and I just know I love you yes I do Look into your smile and I just know That's why I write this song for you You know this is little song about my baby You know this is simple love song 'bout my baby

We pulled into the back of the bar Barely a place to park your car Into the night you slipped away I stared at the back door wrought with decay Heard trunk open, that was my cue Get out of the car, there was much to do Unloading a keyboard, stand and chair Equipment for sound was stashed in there What hit me first when I stepped through the door The stench of stale beer, urine, and more Happy to see you, they all shake your hand A keyboard player really adds to the band (Chorus) It's a hole in the wall, as we well know Musicians are jammin, most anything goes Coming from day jobs, they all arrive Night time and music, they come alive Once inside I search for a table Knowing you'd join me when you were able Our waitress comes with drinks in hand You're a regular here with this house band The boys are playing songs to warm up While near the stage each jammer signs up Catching up on news of who's playing where Old friends and new friends converge in there Heat is created when couples dance close Jammers respond by giving their most Guitar in hand, Billy turns to you His solo demands a response from you Heat is created when couples dance close Jammers respond by giving their most Piano solo done, Johnny turns to you His solo demands a response from you Night time and music dances by Some jammers had to say goodbye Don't forget 'bout our next gig New tunes to play, new songs to dig

The end came from your blind side You never thought she’d leave you behind Between daylight and evening gloom She disappeared from every room You thought she was making waves Then she grew silent in coming days Your love somehow took a fall Now it’s up against a vast dark wall   Currents flow fast from depths below Love can be lost in the undertow Something within her – a silent yearning Drew her away – now you are learning Her empty spaces hurt inside She had to leave you – it was time The one you love had been drowning Somehow you missed her distant calling Summon courage – leave pride behind Dive into dark riptide   Love sometimes ebbs and flows Strong hearts will fight undertows Swim with currents to the shore Safe from the depths to love once more

A Long time ago,  legends say Fire Mountain,  had its day Mt. Tahoma,   it was called In sun or clouds,   standing tall Like Fire Mountain, there's heat inside Smoldering, erupting,  coming alive Earth split open,  flames flew high Life in fire's heat did die Inside Tahoma,  heat smolders still This mountain lives,   to exert it's will. Like Fire Mountain, there's heat inside Smoldering, erupting,  coming alive Anger's fueled,  with hot fire Consuming all,  leaving no desire Remains of ashes, on the ground Love no longer, can be found. Passion's  fueled,   with desire hot Consuming all,  love it's not Love burns steady,  growing inside Passion erupts,  in it's own time. Like Fire Mountain,  there is heat inside Smoldering, erupting, coming alive Sometimes a heart,  with love overflows Rolling like a river,  a hot lava flow Driven as you gaze on,  your own sweet child Forever in your heart,   true and wild. Like Fire Mountain,  as years go by Friendships get weathered,  you can't deny Steady through storms,  or under fair skies True friends will never,  let embers die Like Fire Mountain,  there's heat inside Smoldering, erupting,  coming alive Like Fire Mountain,  there's heat inside Smoldering, erupting, coming alive Love is a risk,  with stakes so high Spirit and soul,  can't wither and die...

It's time now to move on Tired of singing the same old song Eyes now open - I do see The one holding me back was me There are times you can get stuck Up to ears in stinking muck Time to climb out of the black hole Find your heart - restore your soul Go to the mountains - slip away Or to a beach and sea spray Free yourself from your busy mind Illusions can make you blind The voice inside you is so wise To predators hiding in disguise Escape the static surrounding you Find yourself and renew Life situations I do find Sometimes become so unkind Hurricane Ridge is a place to be Alpine air will set you free Hike through clouds in morning grey Heaven will shine by midday. Way up high on Mt. Rainier Hike up to base Camp Muir Playful marmots you will find Blowing winds will clear your mind. Go to the mountains - slip away Or to a beach and sea spray Water or heights for your escape Spirit becomes one with landscape From a cliff the view's a thrill Scanning peaks while being still Wind surrounds you and blows away Pain and regrets from former days. A true friend is hard to find The trust you need takes some time It is a gift I find is true Escape together, we can do. It's time now to move on Tired of singing the same old song Eyes now open - I do see The one holding me back was me Ruby Beach for a day of play Tide pools, sea stacks make your day Windblown trees have stories to tell Inhale salt air and listen well. Vashon Island by ferry ride Best time to go is at low tide Stroll along rocky shores The voice inside you cries for more.
