An effort at such, anyway…two years after Betrayal.


Trying, trying, trying
to forgive,
to keep my heart open.

I don’t know where, what, who you really are.

I cannot forget what you did.
But, I do not think of it every day or most days.

I admit that you are a human being.
And I know that
all humans need love,
all humans need forgiveness from and for.

I cannot give you love,
but I know that you should have it.

I forgive the frailty that is the feeble body.
I forgive the weakness that is the wounded mind.
I forgive the sickness that is the shattered soul.

But these I will always know:
some did not reach out to question or console;
some followed when they could have led;
some were afraid to ask.

The worst were simply evil in the guise of benevolent power.
Narcissus has nothing on you.

Most importantly, I forgive myself.

Last song I wrote in 2012.  Freshly recorded in 2013.  Written for my husband, but the inspiration was a pop song by a boy band.  Here’s the text and below is the SoundCloud link:

Oh Daddy, You Are My Rock!

Oh daddy, Oh daddy, Oh daddy
You are, you are, you are, you are my rock.

Your kiss is sweetest wine That makes me feel divine
Your skin is softest fur That makes me gently purr
Your love’s the rarest pearl That rightly rocks my world
You are, you are, you are, you are my rock!

Your touch is cooling river That makes my soul to shiver
Your arms are soft embrace That makes my heart to race
Your eyes are deepest thought That makes my passion hot
You are, you are, you are, you are my rock!

Talking, sighing, kissing, twining, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh.

We love, we kiss, we talk You are my gentle rock
I love your honey voice I had no other choice
Because you bear me whole For you I bare my soul
You are, you are, you are, you are my rock.
