Bethlehem

a friend of mine
God only knows
compared to quality
of clothes
or next to heavy
stacks of gold
protects my life
until I’m old

a friend of mine
unlike the roof
above my head
is living proof
from flood and rain
you kept me safe
a friend like you
can’t be replaced

when someone asks
what would I do
with my last dollar
what I’d choose
without a moment
I could say
I’d give it all
to you today

a friend of mine
no bank can hold
the kind of wealth
you cannot fold
from you did I
survive with wealth
from you I learned
to love myself

If I could satisfy
the rivers flow
I’d give the life
my lover dreams

if in my hands
her sun would rise
my smile would be
just what it seems

through faded signals
Crossing roads
the miles just telling
lies at sea

My love will always
call her home
her smiles and tears
mean everything ©

Dear Jesus I love her

Dear Jesus Forgive me
I feel lost and alone
I’ve brought tears to my woman
I’ve abandoned my home

she’s the light in my darkness
I’m the pain in her night
she’s the hand I hold onto
guide me to be her light

I could never go on Lord
She’s my reason to live
she’s the one I will fight for
everything I will give

just to hold her up high Lord
I will die by her side
please protect her and love her
in Your word I’ll abide ©

by holding his hand

an innocence maybe
her fingertips curl
his hand like a baby
she takes on the world

her soft pretty make up
she believes
love commands

stands behind pretty seen
when she’s holding his hand

he can see someone missing
feel forgotten and sad
he can need her to feed him
face to face with his dad

she’s got eyes to her thigh’s
made to call any man
but to me she’s made golden
by holding his hand  ©

 

Because you love your man

IMAG1163

When I think about
the reasons
for my mind
running circles
chasing memories 
it hurts to find

girl to me
you’re memory
it’s in the wind
blowing back mistakes
I’m running races
I can’t win

in the moment love
completely let me go
far from you
it cuts me
like the scars
you hide I know

never me to be
who seems to
see you’re sad
how bad it hurts
sometimes inside
because you love
your man ©
