The Circle

You are the breezes of my heart,
You are my heart that sings the breeze
To catch the song of morning birds,
The circle now complete.

The way you edge the nighttime tune,
And move along the starlight rhyme,
For you I give my all to say
You my sacred time.

That with which I spend my worth,
All the gold there is on earth
To ebb the essence of truest you
Forever green and blue.

And what is true in all things you,
Is me and you together,
For as you say no one can falter
When love is true forever.

Now underneath the tree we kiss
In the midst of falling leaves,
And know right here the truest tryst,
The circle now complete.

Heavens Bride

She told me I was brave and bold like a knight,
That chivalry was the code I’d studied all my life;
Then she took her simple hand and placed it in mine,
She said, I’m yours if you want me, I will be your bride.

All the stars in heaven bloomed like the spring;
Every bird on every branch of every tree began to sing;
And the past was just a memory that didn’t mean anything.
Upon her pale white finger I wound on Saturn’s ring.

I’d like tell the story of our life in love;
I’d like to offer something to the stars above;
I’d like to say it’s true for I’ve released the dove
But she is still a dream
