Dream Baby

Dream Baby,
Look at her as she walks down the aisle.
Dream Baby,
You’re the one that makes me smile
Now we’re together
And so much in love.
I look at you
And we say “I do”.
My heart is beating fast
As I lift up your veil
And kiss your sweet lips.
Loving you is better than a dream, baby.

They met long ago
That is how this story goes.
As they talked, they didn’t know
That they were dreams from heaven
Sent for each other.
Now, they are so much in love
And will forever be lovers.

Dream, baby
Of our time together.
Dream, baby
You’re the one I love
Dream Baby,
You are my dream, baby.

Close your eyes now and dream, baby
For tomorrow is our wedding day.
There are so many words to you I want to say.
It’s times like this I don’t know what to say or do
Because I’m in love with you.

Dream Baby,
I see you sleeping
As the glow of the fireplace
Dances across your face.
You are more beautiful than I ever dreamed.

Now, she is dreaming late at night
She’s got a dream baby on her mind.
Times are a-changing
And love is a-coming
To this beautiful Dream Baby.
So dream, baby.

Dream Baby,
Look at her as she walks down the aisle.
Dream Baby,
You’re the one that makes me smile
Now we’re together
And so much in love.
I look at you
And we say “I do”.
My heart is beating fast
As I lift up your veil
And kiss your sweet lips.
Loving you is better than a dream, baby.

Dream, baby
Of our time together.
Dream, baby
You’re the one I love
Dream Baby,
You’re the one I will hold
Even as we grow old.
Dream Baby,
You are my dream, baby.

No Place I’d Rather Be

Look, here comes the sun.
A new day has begun.
Out on the river, the water shines
and it ripples in mighty lines.

Let’s walk under the sky so blue.
That’s all I want to do with you.
Far off an eagle cries
Followed by the sound of your pretty sigh.
You look into my eyes
and there’s no place I’d rather be.

We walk through the grass so high
and watch a hawk as it takes off to fly.
Listen to the stream as it flows.
On and on forever it goes.

I just want to lay here with you
and watch the sky turn an emerald hue.
Hold each other as the sun goes down
and feel the silence all around.
Days as perfect as this are so few.
There’s no one I’d rather share it with than you.

A day so pretty I can’t recall.
Guess it’s that way when you fall.
The katydids are singing
and in harmonic rhythm our hearts are beating strong.

The world’s at peace,
I hope you can feel it too.
Soon day will be set anew
and the morning will be fresh with dew.
In all of nature’s beauty, there is nothing I would rather do
than share this with you.

Ode To A Brother

So many days I wonder,
Why did it have to happen to you?
Why were we selected for this task?
Brother, as I look at you, I wonder.
If you could speak what would you say to me?

Would we share jokes?
Would you give me brotherly advice?
I’d give the world to know you better.
Maybe, just maybe, some day you will be able to read this letter.

Your muscles may not work in smooth motion
But that doesn’t bother me.
You may not be able to see
But that doesn’t bother me.
You lift me up when my world collapses.
You are the strength that I can only hope to be.

You may not be able to move around gracefully
But that doesn’t bother me.
Just your being here is enough for this little brother.
I hope you know this through the wordless emotions that we speak.

Though we may always wonder what could have been,
We are blessed to have each other.
Through the sad and happy times,
You are my best friend.

We’re in this until the end.
We are bonded by blood until the end of time
And I wouldn’t want anyone other than you
As my brother.

Outside the Window

This lyric/poem is for everyone who needs to hear an encouraging word as we fight through this pandemic.

Sun shining
A ray glistening through the cloudy sky.
Look outside –
No words do you need to say.
Close your eyes and open your mind.
Let the stress and strife melt away,
As you feel the newborn day.

Outside of my window,
I hear the birds singing.
Outside my window,
There is a land where I once was
And again, long to go.

Outside of my window,
Where the grass turns greener every day
As time advances to the month of May.
Watch the red streak of the cardinal
And the blue hue of the blue-jay
As they soar and play.
Feel the world melt away.
As they soar through the dancing sway of the trees.

One day, the prison walls will fall,
And the calm of nature will call.
We will dance through the grass so high
And into the pure blue sky will I sigh
With you by my side.
That’s the world that waits for us
Outside of the window.

Outside the Window

Valentine’s Day Special Lyric/Poem – In Your Arms

To all of you who are celebrating Valentine’s Day today and tonight with a loved one, this is dedicated to you:

The night slowly comes along
And the magic of love comes alive in my heart
As I can hear the music of a love song.
In your arms is where I belong tonight.

Girl, take my hand,
Let me sail you to a star-lit land.
Now, our hearts move as one as we sway to the beat.
I’m lost in this moment in time with you
Because all I want to do
Is slow dance with you in my arms.

Listen to our hearts as they sway to the music
And watch as our feet drift along.
Feel it now, our love is strong.
With you, there is no way to be wrong.
Love as it should be, in your heart where I belong
As I slow dance with you in my arms.

Oh, forbidden fruit never tasted so fine.
Still can’t believe that out of all of the hearts
You want mine.
Never knew a love like this,
Living my life searching for a heart like mine.
I was a prisoner and you set me free.

In the dark of the night
We don’t need a light to feel so right,
For our love lights up the darkest of nights.
We are a true lover’s sight
And know what it’s like to love somebody.
I’m where I belong in your arms tonight.

Take my hand
Let me sail you to a star-lit land.
Now, our hearts move as one as we sway to the beat
I’m lost in this moment in time with you
Because all I want to do
Is slow dance with you in my arms tonight.

Listen to our hearts as they sway to the music
And watch as our feet drift along.
Feel it now, our love is strong.
With you, there is no way to be wrong.
Love as it should be, in your heart where I belong
As I slow dance with you in my arms.

I can hear the music of a love song.
In your arms is where I belong tonight.

Two Wine State of Mind

Beautiful soul, beautiful heart.
Feel my love, even when we are miles apart.
The power of your love
Lights up the dark side of the moon.

I see your face – the sun spills across it.
You toss your long hair and give me a smile –
Oh, can you feel my heart melt?
How can I tell you?
How do I tell you?
My heart is yours.

Darling, you put me in a two wine state of mind,
One touch from your hand –
One look from your angelic eyes
And I’m yours forever and for always.
Lost to all of the world but you, girl.
Girl, you don’t know what you do to me,
You put me in a two wine state of mind

Two wine state of mind –
That’s where I want to be
As long as I’m with you.

Feel the world sway,
Every time you look my way.
I’ve been waiting for you my whole life.

In your arms,
I feel myself start to float away.
Girl, I feel the world sway
All I have to do is be around you.

Darling, you put me in a two wine state of mind,
One touch from your hand –
One look from your angelic eyes
And I’m yours forever and for always.
Lost to all of the world but you, girl.
Girl, you don’t know what you do to me,
You put me in a two wine state of mind.

Out of the Mist

Out of the mist
At the dusk of night and the dawn of a dream,
I saw you in a vision.
You reached out and told that all would be alright.
Then, like the breeze, you were once again a memory.
When will you appear again,
Out of the mist?

Born to a farmer
And raised by the land,
His hands were made strong and his heart bold
By the life of the farm.
His passage began by tending the cows and the crops with
The heart of a boy on a journey of a man.

Never had fame, never had want and was guided by the light.
He knew his place
And he knew wrong from right.
All the fame and want he needed in life
Came to him from the love of his kids and his wife.
Making a living and working the fields brought a smile to his face.

He gave and taught love
Worked hard up until the end.
An honest, small town man living his life in the right.
But one day in May,
The heart that had worked and loved so much,
Was suddenly called to up Above.

His time was too short.
When he comes to visit,
Time doesn’t seem to exist.
Please don’t go, I wish that you could stay.
I wish that you weren’t gone and could remain
Out of the mist.

Out of the mist,
Gone too soon.
Wish you could come back and stay awhile.
Oh, we loved you so much and we miss you.
Please don’t be a stranger
And visit again
Out of the mist.

Joseph Thomas Kushi (1921-1982)

I Know That It Hurts

Tears falling down on your heart
I can see into your eyes
You are cold and shivering from a cold rain
You’re trying to hide the pain.
My heart feels shattered and it’s not even mine.
Hang on, don’t let this tear you apart.

I know that it hurts,
A broken heart does, I know.
But baby, please don’t give up.
You are something special.
I don’t know if you will hear my words,
But I am here for you.

I may not be much,
But, darling, if you can see through your tears
You will see me waiting for you.
Go ahead and cry, I’m on your side.
Please let me hold you in my arms.
All I want to do is to see you smile.

Thunder and lightning go hand in hand
And with you, I am willing to make my stand.
Let me embrace you in my arms as I fall into yours.
When this storm has passed,
I hope we have opened instead of closed doors.
I don’t expect your broken heart to heal.
That’s alright, there is time.
But I hope when the time comes it is me you feel.

I know that it hurts right now.
Darling, let me pull you close.
I am here for you.
Close your eyes and let yourself go.
I’ve realized that I love you more than you can know.
I know that it hurts
But please let me hold you in my arms
And show you how much I care.

(Find My Love In A) Pumpkin Patch

Jack of all trades,
Small town worker.
Big time dreams
And a quiet heart.

Saw her once – too shy to try,
But always wondered what if.
Girl, you caught my eye –
Let me get to know you.

Time passed and two hearts spoke –
Two lives became intertwined.
This small town farm boy still loves you.

So meet me under the light
Of a full harvest moon
In a world we can call our own.
We can make it, you and I.
In this field illuminated by orange light
As we dance into the night.

Oh, what a sight we are tonight –
A true love story gone right.
Can you feel my heart glow
As I look at you in the shadow of the firelight?
If you ever wander and roam,
Come and find this small town jack
Waiting for you in the starlit glow
From the pumpkin patch.

So in love with you –
Darling, just look into my eyes.
You hold me close and I hear you deeply sigh.
What would my world be without your love?

So meet me under the light
Of a full harvest moon.
We can make it, you and I.
Come and find me, baby,
Waiting for you in the starlit glow
From the pumpkin patch.

Far Side of the Moon

Blue sky and black night –
All of it is one, this sight.
Hitch me to a rocket
And launch me into space.

In the name of humanity
Go forth do I.
Hitch me to a rocket
And launch me into the unknown
As to another world we go.

And I’m coming in slow and steady
With an engine that is hot and ready
To the far side of a world I’ve never seen before.
Coming in, touching down into a sight unknown –
Thoughts knocking on my door,
Silence in my mind as I
Look around to this new world I call mine.
And I look to come around to find
A place to call home.

In this magnificent silence,
I find myself thinking of you,
And a world that seems so far away.
As I am exploring this far off moon.

Turn on the lights,
I’m coming in slow and steady
With an engine that is hot and ready
To the far side of a world I’ve never seen before.
Coming in, touching down into a sight unknown –
Thoughts knocking on my door
Silence in my mind as I
Look around to this new world I call mine.
And I look to come around to find
A place to call home.

Soon, I’ll be coming home
Slow and steady
But burning hot and ready.
Silent will I be as I look at this world I call mine
And I will be looking for the place and the love
That I call home.
