Forever

As long as the sun continues to shine
And forever more you will be mine

As long as the waves crash upon the sand
And together we shall always stand

As long as the moon glows in the dark
And when alone there is always a spark

As long as the rain falls from the sky
And when no others are there but I

As long as the flowers color the hills
And time somehow seems to stand still

As long as the air cools in the night
And you are there in morning’s light

We shall live forever in loves delight
As we take off on loves lifelong flight

Black Widow Spider

She  the widow spider crept oh so slowly
And hung her shameful head so very lowly

At night she prays upon the innocent and weak
To toil and plunder the harmless and meek

Does she ever sleep after her belly has been filled
And can they even know how their fate has been willed

To her the black widow spider
And to all who must now fight her

Be wary the trap and all you shall miss
Don’t forsake your future for the black widow’s kiss 

Just one more day

A once in a lifetime love
As gentle as a dove

Came unexpectedly into my life
Without giving me any strife

He touched my heart strings
As soft as a butterflies wings

We danced through the years
Shedding only a few tears
A journey of colors and shapes
We never wanted to escape

A fairytale fit for a princess
Her prince would have nothing less

We grew old and settled in
Living life from within

Spring’s warm sunny days
Turned to winter’s cold haze

A shock of such sad news
Forever giving me the blues

His pain is finally gone
As I watch the morning dawn

The love I held so dear
And was always oh so near
There will be so much sorrow
And be no more tomorrow

I shall not say goodbye
True love will never die

Every rainbow that I see
Every flower with a bee

All the stars that twinkle
All the rain that sprinkles

As the sun warms the air
And for all that I care

When the moon casts its glow
For all that I know 

Till the very end of time
You will always be mine
If I could give anything my love
To watch over you from above

To have every day
Never fade away

I will forever be your mate
And you as always my fate

I only ask the stars above
Just one more day with my love
