Always More

Always More

Don’t have a doubt, there’s always more
Good fortune comes when you are sure
The answers to the quest you’re on
Will start to come once fears have gone

Search harder and the dream is there
It waits until you truly care
And then, emerging from the deep
Delights which you may always keep

Beyond the daily toil we see
So much still waits in you and me
Go slow now, for the future’s bright
Too much too soon would blind our sight

Unceasing is the life we lead
Potential way beyond our greed
So take a step and watch with awe
As you will see, there’s always more

Winds Of Change

Winds Of Change

Strongly blow the winds of change
This world at times can rearrange
And all you thought you knew so well
Transformed beyond what you can tell

A strange and happy twist of fate
An answer coming now, so late
Don’t ask the reason for this shift
At times we just receive a gift

The sender lives so far away
Beyond the clouds, no night or day
Another world, another plane
Aware of all our loss and gain

So sleeping we receive the news
And somehow change and build our views
To vistas rich with good intent
A beauty which will not relent

Within this veil of earthly charms
We notice also men of arms
Still hoping war moves out of range
And love’s swept in on winds of change

Simple Lives

Simple Lives

Simple lives can bring such joy
That complications can destroy
Take time when choosing how to live
A gift we have, so what to give?

The daily message we receive
Might not be helpful, try to believe
The media and the voices tell
Of grim despair, a living hell

Yet what’s beyond the tales of doom?
In our small lives there must be room
For joyful times and kindly deeds
Prepare the future with these seeds

For all will grow from here and now
A change of heart we should allow
Stay open-minded, much arrives
When happy with our simple lives

Make A Plan

Make A Plan

The time has come to make a plan
It’s easy when you know you can
So dream away until you find
The answer in your deepest mind

So great to see the future clear
With all the things which you hold dear
This could not be without a goal
A guidance for your very soul

Now drifting doesn’t help a lot
Take stock of what you know you’ve got
You know from here it’s time to move
There’s much to gain and much to prove

The challenge now is firmly set
A simple thing but stranger yet
For all your dreams at last began
Because you chose to make a plan

The Song Remains

The Song Remains

The food of love it may well be
So much it brings, so much for free
And music has so much to teach
For every heart it soon will reach

No hiding from the sounds which weave
Enjoyment and a chance to believe
For many forms this power can take
To send asleep or keep awake

So listen close and learn some more
The music serves both rich and poor
And when mankind is swept away
The music still may want to play

Enjoy each note and gentle phrase
The need is great for peace these days
And also chaos may be found
No end to what we do with sound

Keep open then to what may play
Don’t dare to cast this gift away
It holds the keys to other planes
The world moves on, the song remains
