Zen Command

Zen is something I
Long to reach, something ever
Beyond my command.

You Know

You know that I will
Love you always; you know that
I will love you still.

You know that I am
Yours forever, and if you
Don’t – then, well, you should.

When…

When all is said and done,
When you are dead and rotten,
Will you be mourned for all you’ve done,
Or for all that you have gotten?

When all is said and done,
When all you are is ash,
Will you be missed for what you’ve done,
Or for being over brash?

When all is said and done,
When you are but a memory,
Will you be recalled for fun,
Or for being absentee?

Vellum and Leather

Vellum and leather,
Parchment and feather,
These things are all of a kind,

For vellum and leather,
Parchment and feather,
Are all in my heart entwined.

Vellum and leather,
Parchment and feather,
Coalesce nicely in books;

And vellum and leather,
Parchment and feather,
Await me in every nook.

Yes, vellum and leather,
Parchment and feather,
Are surely all of a kind,

For vellum and leather,
Parchment and feather,
Are all in my heart entwined.

Tell Me a Story

Tell me a story
And tell me true,
What is the best thing
That’s happened to you?

Have you traveled the world,
Strayed far and come near?
Have you written a book
Or brewed your own beer?

Ever fallen in love?
Been brokenhearted?
Ever finished a task
Before getting started?

Tell me a story,
And tell me true –
What’s the most memorable thing
That’s happened to you?

Returning Round

Return to me
The one I love,
Set him free
From Heaven above.

Return to me
That which I’ve lost,
Set him free
Or pay the cost.

Return to me
My heart’s desire,
Set him free
Or face my ire.

Return to me
The one I love
And set me free
To live in love.
