Long ago we made a promise
to meet under the blue skies
beside the acacia grove.
You asked me to search my heart for justice
when fear clasped its chains around my feet.
And as I turned and stumbled away
you promised me unconditional love.
You knew in time I’d learn to trust my feelings
in the season when cool winds scatter dust around.
Apart from you, I found myself.
Who I really am.
Though there’s nothing in life to be certain of
I looked inside and found the answers
amidst the memories.
That love is truth and truth is justice.
And in my heart I found all three.

“Remember this place?” Andy said, spreading his arms out over the cobblestone streets.
Delilah marveled at his crinkle-free eyes. As hazel as the day they met forty years ago. A pair of women in strappy dresses smiled brazenly at Andy. Boldly flirtatious. So different from her day. She wasn’t mad. They assumed she was his mother. How were they to know Andy stopped aging at twenty-five?
Miraculous, the doctors had said.
“How could I forget? This is where we first met.”
“You mean when you almost bumped me over with your scooter!” Together they laughed, eyes shining and hearts fluttering.

Playing around with a song idea. It’s half done, and the idea is mostly there. But just wanted to hit that publish button and put something out there.
I set myself on fire to keep you warm
You say that you love me
but you can’t see me burn
Bonfire on the beach beneath a sky full of stars
And I could do it all night babe, for your smile
It’s just that through the smoke, the stars dim for me
So I begin to wonder about Life’s possibilities
Love that invites to another world
where fires burn to light the way
and when i arrive it feels like coming home,
Coming home to stay
