Life is fine

by Langston Hughes


I went down to the river,

I set down on the bank.
I tried to think but couldn't,
So I jumped in and sank.
I came up once and hollered!
I came up twice and cried!
If that water hadn't a-been so cold
I might've sunk and died.
But it was Cold in that water! It was cold!
I took the elevator
Sixteen floors above the ground.
I thought about my baby
And thought I would jump down.
I stood there and I hollered!
I stood there and I cried!
If it hadn't a-been so high
I might've jumped and died.
But it was High up there! It was high!
So since I'm still here livin',
I guess I will live on.
I could've died for love--
But for livin' I was born
Though you may hear me holler,
And you may see me cry--
I'll be dogged, sweet baby,
If you gonna see me die.
Life is fine! Fine as wine! Life is fine!

Because Of You

Because of you
my world is now whole,
Because of you
love lives in my soul.
Because of you
I have laughter in my eyes,
Because of you
I am no longer afraid of good-byes.
You are my pillar
my stone of strength,
With me through all seasons
and great times of length.
My love for you is pure
boundless through space and time,
it grows stronger everyday
with the knowledge that you'll always be mine.
At the altar
I will joyously say 'I do',
for I have it all now
and it's all because of you.

Show me


You know I love you dearly
but I cause you so much pain
I cannot find true happiness
and you feel you are to blame
it seems so unjust
for me to make you feel this way
it's so hard to decide
whether I should leave or stay
staying is not wise
as faking happiness is exhausting
leaving's a bit worse
for your heartbreak I would be causing
so show me what to do
help me to be strong
lend a helping hand
give me your shoulder to cry on.

Secret Love


     Secret Love

In a dark mid-night
We met together
In the valley of secret love.
With a crazy madness
Fountain of feelings dropped
Brought Rhythm of life
In your  dry desert.

YOU



Author: Nichole Hall

When I close my eyes     
To sleep at night 
It's you I see 
Holding me tight. 

Your arms so strong 
You make me feel safe 
The only thing wrong 
Someone else has your place. 

I know it is wrong 
To be dreaming of you 
But my heart just can't stop 
These feelings so true. 

The timing was wrong 
I met you too late 
A promise was made 
To determine my fate. 

Why weren't you there 
When I had the chance 
I will always regret 
Not getting this dance. 

And so for now 
I will settle for two 
But in my heart 
It will always be you. 


ON DREAMS OF PERFECT LOVE


Author: David Ruble

A misty sunrise fills the east
With yellow, gold and red.
The bowl of space a palest blue,
Sheds light upon our bed.
The warmth beside my soul, a feast
Of love for only you.
So let the birds, with song, remain
Within the morning hours,
To pour upon the crisp, new day
A hope, like cleansing showers.
For you I send refreshing rain
To wash the past away.
A quiet breeze so warm and slow,
Has drifted ‘cross my face.
It brings the scents from flower climbs,
And leaves without a trace.
It stirred this battered heart, you know,
To love this perfect time.
Like whispers lost at sea, we soar
Beyond the sky of fire.
Together. Lost together, free
To claim our each desire.
Like leaves we float to earth, once more
To close our eyes and be.
