Two Bean Enchiladas

Order me two bean enchiladas,

Yeah, that sounds like a good plan

w/delicious cheese,

all melted, warm, & gooey

& sweet tea in a can

Old Mac

Old Mac, old buddy, you’re looking quite gray

I remember the red hair you had back in the day

It really stood out, looked like

a hot raging flame

but beyond that, you stood out

for so many other things

like the poems and music you wrote

& how your fingers danced so beautifully

across a great multitude of guitar strings

& how you kept a firm grip on the sweet

down home way you were raised

“Live Your Story” Alternate Title: Broken Star

Old T.M., all dressed in black,

w/his old guitar & a derby hat

he looked rough & ragged, that’s a fact

& his voice sounded more than a little cracked

but he lifted up his voice to sing

to all the souls who’d hear it ring

to let them know there were no limits

to how big they could dream

He said:

“You know, I’ve been where some of you are, been a little frazzled, got some battle scars, but all in all, I’m alright, I’ve never lost my will to fight, I may be a broken star, but haven’t lost my shine, go live your story like I have mine”

Paradise

Andrew loves to go hiking every summer,

up through a high mountain pass,

and to go camping down near a river where

the water’s clear as polished glass

He loves to dig his toes down into wet soft beds of clay, and if anybody were to ask

He would surely say it’s paradise

He wouldn’t have it any other way

A Decade Along, Still Going Strong

Ten years married together and they’re still going strong, all the good times are on their minds more than the times that have gone wrong

He still loves to hold her while they relax late each night, to see the smile on her face, and their future’s looking bright

The family they’ve built together, they wouldn’t trade for all the world, it’s worth more than all that glitters, it’s more precious than diamonds or pearls.
