Maybe a day will come
When you see that all I’ve done
Is fail more than I have won
But I did it because you’re the one
That I’ve had my eyes on
Even when I tried to run
If you know where I’m coming from
Maybe you’ll find your home
Could be here in my empty arms
Close to my loving heart
Stare into each other’s eyes like stars
Watch love create a start
For two people who were starved
By affections game of cards
Never knowing what we are
When finding love was oh so hard
Maybe our lives will change
Into something that we can take
Not for granted, but for future sake
To show the world some day
That it’s likely you’ll never break
A heart that love can’t come to aid
When storms erode emotion’s banks
Love builds a wall of grace
And some things that you will not change
Will crumble when someone shakes
The foundation on which lays
The fortress of ice you’ve made
So now, love, please embrace
These words in the deepest place
That my heart could never fake
The hope that I’ll have you all my days.
Truth now to you be known
I’ve come so far with room to grow
And with good intentions sewn
I got lost in an undertow
Of loss, pain and deep sorrow
Where only mercy could show
Me the way back to the road
Back to the way that I should go
And somewhere down that path
I found you lost in the aftermath
In equations of love’s twisted wrath
Riddled with confusion’s ash
But together we can take the past
And tie it up to the mast
Of a sinking ship that waves will cast
To the bottom of an ocean vast.
Hear me now, love, let’s not regret
Our lives before we first met
And those for whom we used to fret
Are nothing more than just steps
To a place we were meant to get
The place that our Lord did set
For you and I to always let
Our love grow strong, so don’t forget
That every time I sing for you
They are words that are absolute
And these words contain the truth
Even songs from times before I knew
That I belonged to you
Oh my darling I love you too
Even if it seems way too soon
Just know I loved you before I found you.
“I’m a dreamer in life and alive in my dreams. If I’m alive in my dreams then death isn’t all that it seems. It’s for dreams that I long to sleep and if I can still dream then my body, sleep can keep. However, if life is a dream come true and my dreams all center around you, then take my body, my dreams and my sleep, I am all yours to keep, my desire is you and my dreams taught me that this notion is true.”—Rick Elmore
I am the sunset and she is the rain
My warm glow pierces her fluid grace.
Wrapping my arms around all of her
My color invades her storm and we become the world’s paint.
We fill the Earth with all things lovely
We torch the sky with our passionate fire
She pounds her fists against my sun-kissed chest with all her might
She makes my heartbeat and to love her is why I’m alive.
Before darkness casts its shadow over the world
We send off this day, bid the Earth sweet dreams as it turns its face away.
She cascades down from the sky and crashes on the ground
As the flicker of my fire through her tears reflects onto the spaces all around.
She begs me to catch her with my loving stare.
Little does she know that to be caught by my eyes will make her fall
And she will fall forever into the safety of my love
And by these eyes into which she falls, she will be loved most of all.
I am the sunset and she is the rain.
She floods the world with life and I burn the world with joy.
Her voice is a countless chorus of endless drops
And it is my affection, my sunlight kiss upon her face, that made this song.
I am her sunset and she is my rain.
Together we are more beautiful than the stars in the night.
With each other we are stronger than any affliction and pain.
For each other’s hearts, for the sunset and rain, we will forever fight.
