Cabin Over The Hill
...
In a one room cabin where I was born
Mama fetched our water from the well
It's early to bed and up at early morn
The sunrise was always clear as a bell
~
This may be an old tumble down shack
Out back are some roses and daffodils
The shingled roof has a big wide crack
But to me it's my palace on top the hill
~
I remember the good times that we had
Back then we didn't have a lot of money
We always got by it wasn't all that bad
Because our life was so easy and funny
~
We used to sit on the porch at twilight
There was something special and free
When the moon was shining so bright
Night time was a pleasant sight to see
~
My daddy built this old one room cabin
It was made with blood sweat and tears
But he was a hard working son of a gun
And it has lasted through all these years
~
Just the other day I was taking a stroll
Down the dusty road along the old mill
Something I saw from the grassy knoll
An old tumble down cabin over the hill
~

Celtic Woman
....
Aye tis a beautiful day in Ireland
Wearing the color of Irish green
She is the fairest lady in the land
A red headed lovely Celtic dream
~
My lassie from this emerald isle
Her Irish jig has me in a trance
Dress of green in graceful style
A goddess of Gaelic river dance
~
When the moon is on the moor
In the dell I will look her over
Because she is the one I adore
I'll give her a shamrock clover
~
St. Patrick's day will ever be
On this day March seventeen
And this time is special to me
Because she is a Celtic Queen
~
Shamrocks growing in the rain
It's luck of the Irish I must say
Wearing the green will remain
Forever on Saint Patrick's day

eyeofthetiger2u7: Your Funny Valentine
...
You have a lovely personal letter
In your mailbox covered in snow
With kisses to make things better
And hearts because I love you so
~
The envelope is sealed with a hug
Mailed by way of special delivery
Hope your heart strings get a tug
Remembering how I cherish thee
~
When you open up this greeting
And see how much I really care
You'll think of our first meeting
Summer time at the county fair
~
The mailman saw all of the love
It was the only letter in his bag
Signed to my dearest turtledove
He posted it and raised the flag
~
On your step are a dozen roses
And they are there just for you
Hurry before your door closes
Their petals are kissed by dew
~
And when the days are dreary
Our hearts will stay entwined
Then our life can be so cheery
I will be your funny valentine

eyeofthetiger2u7: Cast Away
....
On this deserted tropical island
A palm tree and coconuts grow
The light of day has awakened
Where warm trade winds blow
~
Azure blue waters on the beach
As the sea shells drift in the tide
Fluffy clouds drift out of reach
And dolphins swim side by side
~
White sands of the blue lagoon
Is where I always wanted to be
By the light of the silvery moon
The island paradise calls to me
~
I found this old wooden crate
Drifting onto the sandy shore
It belonged to some shipmate
With the clothes that he wore
~
The worst part of being here
Is to face each day all alone
Each night is filled with fear
Then it lasts year after year
~
I wonder if I will even survive
Lost again forever and a day
Waiting for my ship to arrive
Another forgotten cast away
...

Empty Dreams
....
There is this tranquil space
In the corners of my mind
But it's a lost empty place
Extremely difficult to find
~
Once upon a distant scene
Where only visions dwell
My dreams lie in between
And slowly begin to swell
~
As my thoughts drift away
Into this darkness of night
They fade blissfully astray
Disappearing out of sight
~
When the memories return
And then go merrily along
They will all forever yearn
Like words in a love song
~
Like the lofty birds of pray
Swift wings I must borrow
Empty dreams of yesterday
Here today gone tomorrow

eyeofthetiger2u7: Dreams of Yesterday
...
Fond memories of yesterdays
As the years go on drifting bye
Thoughts of youth in a special way
So swiftly away they fly
~
Captured thoughts in reality
Of the way things used to be
Reminders of life's finality
When days were fancy free
~
If only time could stand still
And turn the key in the lock
Recalling our memory at will
Displayed like a proud peacock
~
Like falling sand in the hour glass
Only mystic illusions still remain
Time to reminisce and stand fast
Floating in a fantasy of refrain
~
Oh how the days drift into the past
When visions swiftly fade away
A kaleidoscope of true life to last
So are the dreams of yesterday

A Journey Into Night
...
Funny how things always change
When we think life's going so right
There isn't the time to rearrange
Dreams that go bump in the night
~
Life never seems to remain the same
When it fades into the choking dust
Down the hallway it calls my name
With echo's of departed loving trust
~
Time goes by then a journey ends
You say you wanted to set me free
But now my soul will never mend
It was plain to see you needed me
~
Where can this empty lost soul turn
Falling deeply into a twisting funnel
As the endless raging inferno burns
I see light at the end of the tunnel
~
Looking to the years at a distance
Time falls through the hourglass
Sand is drifting without resistance
As I reminisce of days in the past
~
Each moment I did what I must do
In my convictions holding on tight
And somehow in time I saw it thru
Now I begin my journey into night
...

eyeofthetiger2u7: My Prayer
...
This is my prayer
I send unto you
Light of my light
Shines in the night
Flesh of my flesh
Deep in the soul
Life everlasting
Salvation my goal
~
Worldly things
Are put asunder
Treasures we find
No need to wonder
What I offer to you
Not the mortal kind
True love and peace
Of the Spiritual mind
~
Hark unto thee
My promise I keep
Walk beside me
For eternity we sleep
Take this hand
I offer to hold
Heavenly Gates
A Kingdom of Gold

eyeofthetiger2u7: Our Destiny
...
God bless this United States
The grandest land of all
To live life without mistakes
Divided we must fall
~
Our rights were set into place
Countless decades so long ago
Bonds that secured our space
United and stronger we grow
~
With liberty and justice
And freedom for all
Set aside the prejudice
This nation will stand tall
~
Hand in hand with dignity
This country can be strong
Forget not what others give
As we sing our nations song
~
For love of our freedom
Many lives have been lost
This is what we had to do
No matter what the cost
~
With a government divided
There exists the bitter pain
We cannot resist one sided
Only liberty must remain
~
We must settle differences
Weather it be left or right
Disregard our preferences
The goal is now in sight
~
This is the greatest nation
Stand up and let us be free
For the better of creation
Don't take it all from me

A Cowboy's Life
...
I'm a cowboy born in the saddle
Roping steers is my middle name
Rode bulls before I could waddle
For silver prizes and rodeo fame
~
A cowboy's life can be so lonely
Riding herd on that dusty trail
I'm so weary it's bothering me
Gotta keep going I cannot fail
~
Off in the distance coyote's howl
Cows are all spooked ready to run
Get along little doggie quiet now
We will ride into the setting sun
~
Yippee eye yea lasso in my hand
Hundred miles on a cattle drive
Across the wide river Rio Grand
I must keep these critters alive
~
Around a campfire cowboys sing
Embers are fading into memories
Pondering what tomorrow brings
Across these endless desert seas
~
Cactus blooming in the meader
An open range is the place to be
The moon is full taking a header
A cowboy's life is meant for me
...
