Dan

Dan played Sax in a jazz band

under bright stage lights

and enjoyed the beauty of the Broadway nights

but as years went on, yeah, as that time flew by

He started to re-prioritize,

He met a lovely lady with a fire in her eyes

He wanted to be her husband,

for her to be his wife,

Settle in a small town, raise a family,

& have a normal life

Enough

Anyone could end up in the break down lane

Feeling stressed & strained like they’re going insane

Thinking their efforts are as futile

As launching a paper plane in a hurricane

but you know what? Despite life’s pain

It’s not empty, not futile, not in vain

Every morning when we rise again

There is mercy, there is hope, there is Love

and that is enough

Sweet Ruby

They laid his sweet Ruby under a live oak,

buried in her favorite red dress & cloak

The day they laid her down to rest, He did his best,

to hold on to the last words that she spoke,

She’d said to him as she’d given him one last kiss:

“I love you now & I always will, I know this loss is a bitter pill,

but rest assured I’ll see you again, & always remember this,

that for forty three years,through ice & fire & raging winds,

you were the man I love & my best friend”

To The Depths

She knows him to the depths,

She even often knows what he’s going to say

before it ever leaves his lips,

He knows her the same,

With every heartbeat, every kiss,

every breath,

They never fail to take each other’s away

When the time comes & they’re looking back,

When their youth is gone in a flash,

When they are old & gray,

They’ll still hold each other close,

in joy till their dying days
