Light And Love

Light & Love II

 in heaven the stage is set for all the whole host of players to take their place
 not about perfection but we are being perfected daily by his love
 as a beacon of light to a hurting world in need of love to behold an open door
 when I was yound I used to dream many dreams as if a fantasy
 now those days are gone but I still look on to when I was young having fun
 life is filled with twists and turns one heart soars the other will burn
 its in the sanctity amidst the calamity that he provides to thee
 we all need a shoulder to cry with a tender message to answer why
 many hide behind the garb of false compromise can't they see through its twisted lies
 yet he still provides yet doesn't work as a steeple or ringing the bell
 or a salesmen telling you something you want to here no
 his love was such that he suffered so much just to cause some of us to follow

 love is the quaint interpretation of a dream set to fancy
 gone are the days with both Sid & Nancy
 to be on the cutting edge of laughter to the supreme
 we are living in a land so very mean where people scream
 the slamming of the door filled with tempers of fire blown up in its fullest of desire
 we fight, push & war
 all seems to be a will for power & nothing more
 love is the sweet essence of my inner existence learn to shun the resistance at every circumstance...
 love has gained a rich way of expressing what to say
 it implodes through dreams falling apart at the seams
 giving people something to grasp amidst the aftermath
 love is a flame it lights the way on a beautiful flower display
 the ever given chance at which to humbly bow the knee to pray
 God is the light the sure fire way that will lead you from sight

 light & love
 bringing down fire from above as distributed through a hug
 the notion of better days to come as you feel comfortably numb
 with each human heart will shall light the spark to where we need to go
 life is filled with surprises out of many circumstances
 some have chosen a rose that was plucked long before
 others are destined for the resolve of so much more
 yet both paths can be met halfway as if the mere notion has taken you away
 in time we shall shine as two forces of graduer
 as if a swifting but silent flowing river
 remember that God is the giver and we are merely its receiver
 there can be a balance of power as you may equate logic for fear
 sullen brevity leads to mediocre tears
