The Spirit of the Eagle

A dear friend shared something with me and others that has stayed on my mind. It touched me and I just had to write about it. I kept it vague and am not sure it is where I wanted it…

Birds

I didn’t feed the birds today 

Something came up 

Drug me down 

And that’s where I’ll stay 

I noticed the rose on your box 

Before you woke up 

As I walked to town  

No alarm clocks 

And I didn’t buy…

The Station

This morning seemed longer 

Than all  the ones before 

So I went down to the station 

And sat by the door 

The travellers were plenty 

But didn’t notice a thing 

Lost in my memories 

I missed the first train 

And…

lullaby of raindrops

A lullabye of raindrops 

Dance on the rooftops 

And it doesn’t dull my cry  

Lances stop the firefly sky 

Will you be true 

When what you need

Dusty tables. Unchalked cue 

Just another empty bar 

No rocks and ain’t no whose who’s 

And I don’t know, who you are 

I can tell you paid you’re dues 

I don’t know who you are 

But…

Moon Shine

Wake up, moon shine 

You’ve cast your spell on me 

It’s been a dark, dark night 

But I can finally see. 

Wake on up, moon shine 

Won’t you show your silver soul 

I had to walk downtown 

In a smile…

Rough Around the Edges 

I didn't make a post for Decoration Day, although everyday I am thankful for those who made the ultimate sacrifice for freedom. I wrote this song and my dear friend, the late Kent Bilbrey arranged and recorded it. He. had…

We can walk there in the Tuesday snow

Not sure whose going to light up the screen

Shine

Shine 

Sterling lines on  the roadway 

Like a thousand twinkling stars 

And you tried to make me stay 

In those winter days of ours 

Now my time is almost spent 

My hand was never enough 

It’s hard to say what…
