I Am the Lucky One


You are often the one who 
Needs a shoulder to cry on 
But I am the lucky one 

You are often the one who 
Is doubting and fearful 
But I am the lucky one 

You are often the one who 
I spend hours on end helping out 
But I am the lucky one 

I am the lucky one 
Because I get to help you 
I get to help an angel 

I am the lucky one 
Because I get to have angel tears 
Bathe my shoulder time and time again 

I am the lucky one 
Because I get to love you 
And feel your love flowing back

All Tuckered Out


There she sleeps 
Tuckered out 
When I wake her up 
She will likely not even remember 
Going to sleep 
And I'll likely have a really good laugh 
As she fumbles her way around the room 
But still I wonder 
What gifts does heaven have in store 
For us 
In that tuckered out beauty 
Who is dreaming of me 
Joining her

Tormented Hope


To parade around 
While others laugh 
I hurt to the core 
At least they think of me 
At least they notice me 
They may only think to torment 
But it's more than any other day 
So I guess April Fool's 
Is a good day

My Best Friend


When I met her
She was not my best friend
When I started to date her
She was not my best friend
When I asked her to marry me
She was not my best friend
When we were married
She was not my best friend
Still today
She is not my best friend
She is so much more
It just took a bit to notice

A Good Book


A good book 
can be quickly read 
or poured through line by line 
You can find a good laugh 
or a new friend 
You can be scared half to death 
or find just enough hope to get you through 
You could be talking about the Good Book 
but there are many good books out there too

When Tomorrow Comes


When tomorrow comes
I will rise up
I will try
When tomorrow comes
I will face my fears
I will find my dreams
When tomorrow comes
I will reach for the skies
and then
When tomorrow comes
I will sing again
When tomorrow comes

Heaven's Dream


Dreams
Or hopes for a brighter tomorrow
Both the same
But do beg the question
What does heaven dream of?
I wouldn't have believed
Heaven even dreamed
Till I met you
