Wishing on a Star

When they look at me
Say I have your eyes
Your smile
And father's mouth

Father, I feel I know
Through tales in legends
Anything about you
Kaliepus would say

Your mother sang like orpheus
Had a smile
Like a breeze
On a warm day

I don't know why you left
Nor, do I care
I sit here longing
There is so much to share

Are you watching me
From the Fields above
Guiding me
Eyes full of love

Seeing me now
Looking from afar
As I sit here
Wishing on a star

Four of a Kind

Why do they look so much alike?
Carbon-copies from outside
Total Opposites from within
Trying to tell them apart
Making my head spin

Did the Gods take part in this scene before me?
Alike, yet not the same
Two innocent and pure
The others with pasts, rather obscene.

The I sit here wondering
Which one stands before me
Searching her eyes for a clue
Is this my loving daughter?
Looking in the deapth of azure blue.

A side-ways grin emerges
Now I am sure
Her expression is soft and fair
Unspoken feelings, voices without words
Only a mother and daughter share!

A Light in the Darkness

What we cannot see
Is what most we'd like to know.
We drive among sheer cliffs in pale moonlight
Unsure of where we are or where to go.

Days full of love,
Of passion, pain, and pleasure
That no one else, no family can
Begin to know or treasure

It's as if a secret room
Held our private store,
And every time we meet, we could
Go through some special door.

We walk along the dream-lit rocky ridges
It matters less which road we choose,
As long as we have our friendship
We will never lose.

Elysian

As I hear your thoughs
Full of anger and pain
I am wondering what
Is keeping you sane

A look in your eyes
I could not bare
Looking for a friend
Who is no longer there

As you stare blankly
Into the fire
Where is the hope
The passionate fire

Why did you give up
Why did you run
Before your mission
Is said and done

Eyes once bright
Now are dark
From the fields I shout
Please don't let the light go out!

Gabrielle's Gift


As I stare into her eyes
So determined, so strong
It's like she can see through me!
Like nothing's there.

How does she do it?
How does she know?
Pushing up feelings;
I've burried so low.

You say you have nothing.
Where do I start;
You gave me the ultimate gift.
You gave me my heart.

Through the Walls of a Mind

Her eyes
Burning bright
Here before me
Every night.

I see her sitting there
Quill in hand
In constant motion upon a scroll
Her thoughts in a far off land

I stare at her
Without letting her know
Not knowing what to do or say
Hard to let the feelings show

The words are just not there
Trapped behind locked doors
In the back of my mind
For so long, no key can I find

Cracks are slowly forming
More apparent with each sun
A light peeking through
And it's all because of you

My loving bard
the keeper of my heart
the missing piece of my soul
I hope we never part

An Amused Glance

After watching Muses
What a funny episode
Something about an actor
Definitely showed!

I laughed so hard
There was tears in my eyes
I never would have guessed!
This came as quite a surprise!

I will admit
She could tango with the best;
To say she's good at Electric Slide;
I have to say I would've lied.

She's so together!
With her warrior stance
Who would have known!
Lucy Lawless can't dance!
