hey my friend
 
Hey my friend, beware false words
words meant to lead, to persuade
I can not say why
my speech is left dry
 
I want to tell you
I meant to tell you
this time is so short
I have to tell you
 
We part so empty
If only i had the words
If only i had the time
gone - we fail
 
tomorrow i hope, i pray
I beg a chance
please the words
we yearn to hear, to say
 

a last poem
 

if i fell now,
a ghost forever
 
a moment to feel
just a notion for you
 
what isn't, what is
faint light recesses
 
stand toward the cold,
bitter breeze in dark
 
rejected by knowing
soothed in this last moment

 

America

I see beauty dive to her left
America whirl in chaos
All i see, know, and so helpless
So many led by what? Who?

I want my children to have the light
We knew as a child
A hope for peace, fairness
Please, not for me, spare them

Leave air to breath, space to dream
water to drink
Waves, Wind - Freedom
America for the people, a light.

Agencies come and go
I like to remember the people
the real things in life
 
Failed campaigns, trivial ideas
a life of memories
I like to remember the people
 
The detail will fade
God accepts the soul
we should look for the soul
 
I like to remember the people

 

Vehicle

 
our vessel wall keeps us apart
ticking to the next task
clear vision but no contact
always apart, distant
 
we came close once
so we thought, felt
no, always apart, distant
remember the feeling close?
 
is there a moment together?
a gathering of souls,a touching
maybe a fleeting affection
we search, we hope
