Wide Open

At some points, we’ve all had hearts broken

heard and said things we wish were never spoken

but I hope and ask that you keep your heart wide open

Always hoping, always holding on to Love

as firmly as you can

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.

Seattle On A Saturday

Jordan hit Seattle on a Saturday,

even though he lived a few hours away

he needed the break

from the week he’d had anyway

he met up with friends,

& they let him stay and rest up

w/them for a while…

The good times he had with them

brought fresh light to his smile

He said:

“Let’s do this again soon, okay?

when I’m headed back again this way,

& don’t worry about the coffee, I’ll pay,

you all really made my day”

To Be Back Home Again (Alternate Title: Homesick)

Oh he’d love to be back home again

He hasn’t seen his family

Since he can’t remember when

He talks to his mama every day

but both of them agree

that it’s just not quite the same

His grandma’s getting up there now in years

When he thinks how much he misses her

He can’t help but shed a tear

He hopes he’ll get back home before she’s gone

but he knows that might be wishful thinking

that he can’t count on…

Julie & Jack

Julie ran into Jack today,

outside a small cafe

long ago she’d moved away,

something they’d both hated

but now she was back again

There was a time,

they both remembered when

they were inseparable,

the best of friends

As they looked into each others faces

there were things there time can’t erase

Like the bright shining light of Love

that never faded
