Longer than the Day

Sitting in the yard with the fire burning,
Night sky clear and bright with the glow of stars far away,
Smoke drifts upward with the smiles around increasing,
Twinkling the among the memories and fun of the summer night.

Shine of the moon gleamed down on the damping air,
Trees aglow, the sparks rising higher, the chill drawing closer,
Singing songs, drinking along, laughing the night away.
Late in the summer, late in the night, a gleam in your eye
Let tomorrow not come and this night be longer than the day.

Life goes on, one thing leads to the other,
Time finds us winding together,
And it all began sitting around the fire,
Where laughter and memories were mired
With the long looks and glances; hints and guesses.


Shine of the moon gleamed down on the damping air,
Trees aglow, the sparks rising higher, the chill drawing closer,
Singing songs, drinking along, laughing the night away.
Late in the summer, late in the night, a gleam in your eye
Let tomorrow not come and this night be longer than the day.

We find ourselves leaning on each other,
The night longer than the day,
The day longer than the night,
Life live along side each other.

Daylight

As the sunsets,
As the moon rises,
As clouds roll in,
And the fog blurs,
As the light of night looms,
As the bright morning wanes,
As the shadows of the stars move,
And the mist of tomorrow shines

Into dreamland we drift,
Into the land where all are equal,
Into the heart of the soul,
Into the depth of the heart we drift.

Into the sleeping states,
Into the restless moments,
Into the heartbreak and mind clutter,
Into the dreams we go.

As the clouds of the night pass,
As the shine of the morning begins,
As the energy of the fog disappears…
We wake again.

HillBilly Kisses

Sweet tango under the starlight,
Barefoot and summer night,
A little radio blasting,
Here we are hoping the night is lasting.

Hillbilly kisses under the stars,
Hillbilly dances with the shine,
Hillbilly romances and sweet fire,
Hillbilly kisses as the sunrises.

Long drive down the dusty road,
Boots on and packs ready,
Trails and mountains as we slowed,
Heights and sights all make you keep me steady.

Hillbilly kisses under the trees,
Hillbilly dances with the breeze,
Hillbilly romances and sweet fire,
Hillbilly kisses as the sunrises.

Sleepless

Sometimes, my mind turns on and a million questions flood and keep going.
Sometimes a loud noise or sudden sound will awaken me from deep sleep and then my mind wanders and goes down the infinite bunny holes it can create.
And then…there are the times I fall asleep slowly and just don’t really sleep and a quiet noise pulls me out it and I stare blankly at the ceiling wondering about too much and not enough to make my mind go silent.

No, I don’t have insomnia. I just lose sleep once in a while…
And tonight is one of those nights…
It happens.
But now I have to try to get sleep before the dawn breaks and I don’t know if my mind will cease for a bit….
Too many questions run amok in my brain and the person I want to ask them all to doesn’t even know I exist or  ignores the fact I do…like I am some ghost.
It makes me ask more questions.
Deep questions emotional questions things that I don’t have answers to.

Sleepless I am tonight…
