It Can’t Be You

You entered, in my mind, 
so long ago, so long ago - 
Even though you were a passing shadow 
unlikely for me to see again. 
Sometimes I’d see you in my mind: 
I’d think of what you were doing, 
what you were seeing, 
what you were imagining - 
You were an unnamed figure 
floating through my mind. 
 
I saw you again the other day 
In an unexpected place. 
You answered all my questions, 
But how can I feel like this? 
It can’t be you… 
It can’t be you… 
It can’t be you. 
 
How can this happen, here and now? 
Before I’ve even started, 
I know how far I’ve got to go… 
And each day is harder than the one before 
because I can’t reach you. 
 
I saw you again the other day 
In an unexpected place. 
You answered all my questions, 
But how can I feel like this? 
It can’t be you… 
It can’t be you… 
It can’t be you.

A Song Within

Battles closing minds at war;
Fights the same, just as before.
Raging struggles in your way, 
surviving another day of artificial, unsubstantial
Fears full of the end.

A song within is for display -
Play it now, play it loud, play it soft;
But most of all: 
Love it all.

“Them and us, us and them” makes it easy to condemn - 
Red in tooth and claw does not have to be the law;
Anger bathed in fear only makes another tear.
Take another step, the next step, for all.

A song within is for display -
Play it now, play it loud, play it soft;
But most of all: 
Love it all.

Listen to the whisper, quiet and small: 
Light belongs to all -
But most of all:
Love it all.
