Stations in time

Inside the minutes and moments
That make up a bittersweet life
The good and the bad
The happy and sad
The part that’s all struggle and strife
I pinched my lips with my fingers
Just to know that i could still feel
Then i woke up with you
In a room we both knew
In a place outside even this world
Once we were planets and oceans
Spinning the orbits like rhymes
Like the notes on a page
Of a song we once played
Only Love lasts the stations in time
What am i doing?
Where will i go?
In the world of form
All of it goes
Extract from the mess the best you can
This instant is all part of loves’ plan

Body in mind

Everyone has their own treasure
Everyone has their own dream
Throw it all in a pile
Laugh or cry with each scene
I guess we are here for a minute
In the hours that make up our time
To fit it all in
The joy and the sin
And pretend that the clock don’t expire
Shut my eyes and try to remember
Just a hint of a time and a place
Certain and safe and inside of this space
Eternity looks and just smiles
I once had a dream where you kissed me
As we walked through a dream and a rhyme
No need for amends or letters to send
Love had healed my body in mind

Symbols

I know my poetry is useless
The form of the words that you see
The origin inside of loves’ ineffable mind
Solace resides and there breathes
The catharsis the words try to point to
The vast reflection of sorrows’
Unsung
And you sing that old song
Until it is gone
Like the mountains fall into the sun
I looked to the sky that we fell from
And breathed a sigh of releif
The world that i thought happened to me
Was merely reflecting all things
And all was there for a purpose
To point to a place in my mind
Where time disappears and all of time’s cares
Like the words inside of this rhyme
I know that time finds you happy
Because we all have the same sites to see
Because at the end of the day
Love wins the whole play
In spite of the world that we see

Soul Stiching

What will we tell Gods’ children
When the future is hard to see
And all that you do
Seems to end up just screwed
And we all fuss and fight and are mean
I guess i should rephrase
The question
To get to point of my plea
If everyone ends of fighting
Where will we find what we need?

Everyone seems to remember
A wind like a warm summer breeze
And the notes of a song
That just seemed to go on
like forever and a day
Can’t you see?

The hope that ends up in stories
And in poems and in songs and in dreams
Will cut through it all
As time starts to recall
All have their parts in this thing

One the mind a projector
A body we’ll just call the screen
Everyone made up this movie
Everyone has been everything
But beyond the lonely and cold pictures
Uncertain and fear weakened bones
Is a Soul that transcends all that time sees to mend
As we stitch up our hopes and our Souls

The purpose of time

Look
I know it don’t even matter
There’s just something I just got to say
Sometimes you are right
Sometimes you are wrong
It’s all just part of a play

Where everyone pulls out a lesson
To remind me of why i am here
To look at it all
And start to recall
Where by forgiving you
I forgive me

So time is just like a mirror?
Of a story that was written before time?
Where everyone falls and the joke in it all
Was we picked each word in the rhyme

So read of the paupers’ and princes’
As we fall through the procession of time
In and out of each scene
And at the end-like a dream
There’s a smile that says
“You did not really screw up your lines”

Somehow it all comes together
When the pieces of the puzzle collide
And we live in a world
And we die in a world
As we discover
The purpose of time

The healing wind

Hold back the wind if you want to
Hold it back as long as you can
What the world gives today
And then takes away
I held my breath as long as i can

I walk down the street in a city
And see what the past has demand
I can leave it today
And just walk away
When love takes the place of fear’s hand

I planted a tree in the forest
To remind of the time
We once shared
Like the tree it will grow
When we all finally know
That love had all along
Had a plan

Mirror of memory

When i try to look back and remember
The fates and the fortunes of time
The lonely cold nights
And the warm open skies
And the daybreaks and sunsets i cried

It’s now in a note and a memory
In a song that i heard long ago
And the melody breathes
And for a moment it seems
I am part of all things
The moon the sea and the sky

I once recall that i saw you
You were joyous and happy and free
And we laughed at it all
When i realized part of the fall
Was that i was you and you were me

Inside of the mirror of memory
The projections that come from a mind
That lives in a past
Where nothing will last
Except the love that is echoed through time

In this place it’s just called forgiveness
Or really to just let it go
What i held in my hands
Could never command
The benign indifference of a world that’s so cold

I tuned my guitar
To an echo
Just a triad of notes
That just rhyme
And the rhythm unfolds
And the song just takes hold
And i sing
For the very first time

In this room

Go on and hold out till tomorrow
And save all your nickels and dimes
When you get to today
In that nothing remains
It would appear that we all live and then die
I tied up my shoes tight to hold me
Put buckles and ribbons and ties
Because the news of the world seemed insane and unfurled
Until i looked at the purpose of time
A series of moments and memories
That continue to loop like a rhyme
And in the time that it took
To realize i was hooked
Took the bait lived out fate
And then cried
There’s more to the mystery of moments
Than a picture of somebody i knew
That lived in a world
And somehow disappeared
But somehow
Only love remains in this room

Stone Hill

Look up Stone hill
And see the birds fly
The clouds disappear
With a tear in my eye
This moment I’ve waited
Since time first began
And I run up the hill
With my legs and my hands

If anything could change this cat and mouse game
Dedicated distractions
That left all insane
Nothing or no one that time holds in it’s hand’s
Can ever forget
That love has a plan

You don’t have to get it
It’s never left you
Its simply been hidden in people you knew
The one’s not so special
The real and the true
And pulled back the veil
Between me and you

When i wake up

I remember when i met you
Had i known of all that would come
I would still find a way
Through the sorrow and rain
To remind me that we all are just one
The one that will laugh and forgive you
After reading the story of time
Where everyone screams
You messed up my dreams
And in the end it seems we all are just fine
I pray when i woke up in heaven
At the end of this thing we call mine
That everyone i knew
And all we’d been through
Was healed and brand new
When i wake up at the end of the mystery of time

When love remembers me

Could i just relay a message
The thoughts inside my mind
Besides the scenery and the shifts I see
Something’s changeless inside time

I know because it matters
Not something you accept or can decline
There is no gain
There is no loss
There is no price
There is no cost

I guess it’s just called mercy
To see that I was blind
I forgive you and
You forgive me
And say farewell to history

I hope the clouds will scatter
I hope inside the sea
The rich blue skies
And the times i cried
When love remembers me

Posted in love will win

Carry me home

Carry oh Carry
Where did you go?
I looked in the sun
I looked in the snow
I looked in the rivers
The wind and the sea
I know somewhere in time
I will find you
And you will find me
And the lessons we learn
In a school we call time
Set up like props in a play with a rhyme
And sings from your heart
From a place far away
That reminds you of home
And the places you staid
Carry oh Carry
Please carry me home
My hurt disappeared
When I heard the songs notes

Under the Sun

I hope you are happy joyous and free
I pray for you as I would pray for me
That all that love sees
Will shine on everyone
And all of the children that made this long run
Forgiven and blessed and we walk from the sea
In a song that was created
Inside eternity

We have to come together
Regardless of what was done
The good and the bad
The happy and sad
Begins and will end
Like a walk to a run
I recall how back in the beginning
We both made a secret pact
That nothing would change
In a world gone insane and somehow
Love would win in the end
Maybe it’s all just a lesson
Or a story that lingers in time
The dreams that we made
And the things that we trade
For our breif and brave run
Under the Sun

A book and all of it’s pages

Will you please stay with me a moment?
All I ask is your hand
Here just to linger and wonder
And not even try to understand
Beyond the mystery of moments
When all was thrown in a bin
And each of the roads to heaven
All returned in the end

A story that holds a lesson
Is so easy to get when it’s read
But when you are part of the pages
The letters the words and what’s said
A book and all if it’s pages
Gives up all the words just to send
To hear and become part of the story
To forgive and to love
All that begins and would end

A Song’s Rhyme

Who will hold me when I realize it’s gone?
In the quantum world it divides and then falls
And places and people who have been made
Unify once again to accept
What time gave
A chance to review
What is already gone
Play the song one more time
The part you got right
The part you got wrong
It turns out we all get the same gifts in time
Some heal your body
Some heal your mind
And all of the packages
Despite what they say
Contain the same contents
And return in love’s name
All of the pieces that muddle through time
Emerge in a song
Unfold in a rhyme

Sometimes I Wonder

Sometimes I wonder
Where did love go?
What could I have done
What should I have known

A breeze that whistles and cries out your name
The bells chime in time
In a world gone insane

Yesterday calls up and gives up at last
Consigned to a cell with a mirror and glass
Remember the past for what it has done
The good and the bad the moon and the sun
The river will take you
Just like it took me
Its just a matter of time
Like a drop in the sea

Words can’t even capture
What I’m trying to say
Experience will and does
Find a way
Then Love will find You
Just like it found me
It’s just a sequence in Time
In the Land of the Free

Faith

I am heading from the kingdom of fear
replaced by a faith I can wear
like a shield to protect these old bones
from the wind and the cold world I’ve known
I am challenged to stand up and sing
in a world that is yearning to be free
I will take my guitar and a poem
all I need to be happy and head home
there is nothing that this cruel world can do
I have faith we will all be renewed

If you happen to hear an old song
a memory of a melody of a love that is gone
can you still hear the faintest of notes ?
A love story that only time had re-wrote

That is the reason I stayed
to remind you that only the beauty will stay
and the memories that you hold in your hand
will keep you safe till we leave this cold land

Posted in love will win

Wherever the roads finally meet

I’m not really sure how it happens
but it all will end with a kiss
and a silent wind blows
and no one left to know
but a song will remain and a list

of memories insane and beatific
all arranged in a merry go round
and all of time stops and for a moment I’m lost
and remember why we all can’t just help and get found

Wherever the roads and the trails finally meet you
again I will call out and see
a journey that throws all the stories and notes
away for a minute to show us what’s not
and there on the mountains I’ll cry too
and there with your memory be found
in the dawns early lights
all is all right
and everyone that was lost
Now is found

its not necessarily so

lets all fight for war because thats what we signed up for
it pays all our bills and gives us a reason to rejoice and then cry
play the part of the hero
And the part of the victim

and gives all our children somebody to fight

Lets all fight for peace because you know that can’t happen
kill or be killed
a tooth for a tooth
an eye for an eye

When force faces force the effect is always disguised as a reason

Like the same god  that brought you

tsunamis makes you pray on your knees to the same god  so you won’t die?
lets all pray for stuff that will never keep you safe or happy
lets all just pretend something we named God knows why
follow me here for a moment
as we look at the story called time
what if our world was created by us?
And only you can choose what to decide

am I living to die or dying to live in this madness?

who in this world has never looked up and just sighed

please release me from what would make life occur in the garden of eden or quantum space then just leave it’s entropic creation to die

I heard in a dream where you saw me

and all I had used to replace

so we made up a god exactly like man

who is jealous and wrathful and fake

and of course he is out to get you

and only a few can remain

the special ones stay and the rest of us go to hell or to nothing that’s safe

and the rest of us here are left lonely and scared and uncertain of every damn thing

and burn underground in a place that’s called hell

but interestingly so

no worse than what we make on prison TV

so that is the tale of the story

the God of Love

has never been scathed

Maybe He just sits outside of space and time and waits and when you are done with the fake

he gives you glimpses of what its like to be safe

you are more than just this limited body

that dries out and rots under the sun

and of all of infinite causes in space

he would never leave even one of his daughter’s or son’s

It’s a wonderful world because it’s a journey of lessons

it shows you what love isn’t

until you realize you are done

and of all the lessons I’ve learned here

inside this place that preceded time and space

that all the world’s fences
one fine day

become undone

My Prayer for Everyone and Everything

My prayer to you and me

Robby Simpson

to those who seek you now can follow
the beat of your own distant drum
the melody will bring you home
the rhythm will make you wiser
to those who believe it will be so
the world will unfold it’s kindness
there is no god of retribution
there is no god of the chosen few
see in the end
love is all that matters and it is here
inside of you
plant your love and it will grow
plant hope and that is what u will sow
and until when we meet again
you will remember what we know
the song has never left your soul
So…

Loosen your shackles
they lives in a dream
and all of the fishes are one with a beautiful wonderful sea

pull back from your senses
for a moment to see
we live the illusion of Adam’s the lost child’s dream

never awoke
from the…

Emerge

Emerge and unfold into time

just images inside of our minds

from there we move on and sing the rest of our song that

with or without belief you will find

forgiveness is the reason we met

I learned you give what you get

you get what you give

we get thrown in a siv and love is all that is left

All the seeds will be called

What can begin

and then have an end

and then have always have been?

Meaning cannot be resolved
until the conflict attempts to be solved
acute as it feels the moment reveals
All the seeds will be called.

Surely the mind will find peace
for what is cannot be called free
the self will retain and inherit the brain
until you realize that was the snake’s deceit

when he quailed you into a limited feast
The fruit or the jumpsuit you see

is a piece from a tree
that tells you a tree-a-sure will grow
but what it don’t say
there is a cost you will pay
and that is to be a seperate

i-m-permanent piece

alone and afraid

in a world made of jade

like fruit that has fell from the tree

the frantic ego mind

will m-i-s-create a world and decide
all that has kept you from peace
but inside will remain

the answer you crave

because it was always just part of a scene

In the play we will call

“How it all gets Re-solved”

at the part where the secret mystery/sacred bullshit veil

becomes unseen

the effect and the cause

will answer when called
and then and only then will you see

there is no way you can hide

from the love in this mind

because tomorrow

 the best part of the dream

and like the fruit you will fall

on the roots of it all

 and you still have never left the tree

So, what can begin

and then have an end

and then have always have been?

It is the seed we call love

and when it all comes undone

we return to extend

the love that has called us from sleep

That being said,

there is work to be done

and you can be light

where none can be seen

Gravity’s Sad

The world that I live in does not feel like my home
it changes from second to second and from flesh then to bone
the central dream seems to have done all but maintain
the illusion we live while here in the brain
somewhere in the exile I call alone
I know in my heart that this ain’t my home
Time hardly remembers so I won’t try to explain
the reasons we live seperated and in pain
and tolereance is high here for polarities reign
no need to wonder why the kids are insane

I looked at gravity and asked why are you sad?
I’m an alien here and I do miss my Dad
consider this now before memories speak

and fall into a slumber and back into sleep

gravity’s sad because his Mom went away and said she’d return but then never explained

the place that we go to there can never be sad

you won’t miss your father or mother and there is nothing that’s bad

so try to remember before sight goes away-this is just a story you made up in your brain

and the exile you feel was really a gift-you can give it away now because it never exists

its’ there as a memory to remind you of home

because nobody here is really ever alone

count 2 4ever

5 string wheel inside a wheel

head up-shoulders back
do you remember this place from the past?
give up to God and surrender your soul
reincarnated in 10 million souls

vibrations I’d seen inside of these strings
the keys that I held that explained everything
and lost in the circle that spins far and wide
and returns to the center when we cross the next side

count to forever and return to one day
and recall the moments when they heard your pain
would it be so crazy you sent you a note?
wrapped inside music –that sang your last hope

such a beautiful place to live was our little corner of the world -inside our hearts ;and within those houses of hope the America we knew was rapidly changing
substance and values and a myriad of ideas that had been heretofore – only wishes …were to be
I was born in 1961–during that decade many events would shape –destroy–challenge and rebuild our souls
and somewhere within that chaos –
I would discover a joy that only sorrow could conceive
a song that only silence would receive
and a light that only darkness could give meaning

Love is all I remember

 
 
when you summon the courage to ask
after time and hell kicks your ass
when puberty’s over and it’s time to get sober
don’t forget that this world holds you last

in time the whole thing sets you free
from the dawn to the dusk to the sea
and inside of this place holds a child that prayed
so that you and I one day would see

that LOVE is all we were meant to remember

our names and our faces will change like the weather
but tomorrow will come as as sure as the sun-
nothing can stop us from the world that
will come.
