Earth Angel Ballad

Daylight Angel banishes night
Making our way, on down the line
Through the cadence and chorus, the withering vine
Of time on the lam, down lanes in the rain
Flitting like butterflies, wings stretched to the sun
Ready and waiting, new adventures to come

Despite flashes of lightening, rumbling across the great sky
The path we are travailing, a dark stain in heart’s eye
Full of the perils of a life fully-lived
Dodging the arrows so generously given

Piercing our hearts, allowing the bleed
To drain us of that which we don’t really need
Leaving a path for others who follow
So their way may be easier, less difficult to swallow

Forsaking ourselves for the task at our hand
Marching along to our very own band
The sun setting lower, the time drawing near
Undaunted by difficulty, hard work, or fear

The time is at hand, the time where we know
The new world is upon us, we all are now home

These Ghosts

Above
The ghosts, they come and go
Lingering in the darkness of a crowded mind
Moving in and out, wispy and ethereal,
Making space for their meanderings
Between the walls of untrained thoughts
And loose-lipped whispers

Haunting, magical
Inescapable grace
Whispers of the past
Harbingers of a future yet unseen

These ghosts, they dominate the mind
When the mind dwells in past affairs
Swirling in and through the soul,
Making present lives but a hazy dream

These ghosts, they are but fiction,
A fragment of a dream already dreamt
No amount of clinging will bring them back
Or make them real again
These ghosts, just let them be
