Between Us

Storm is chasing us now.
We are not safe in this town.
When we get high we feel low.
Nothing can bring us down
When we already are.

Nothing could come between us.
We used to say all the time.
Nothing could come between us.
We used to be just fine.
Something did come between us.
All we do now is fuss.
Nothing can come between us.
Something already did that.

Audio holds no sound.
I’m talk’n but you don’t hear.
Something’s holding us bound.
We just keep drink’n fear
Ready to cross the line.

Nothing could come between us.
We used to say all the time.
Nothing could come between us.
We used to be just fine.
Something did come between us.
All we do now is fuss.
Nothing can come between us.
‘Cause something already did.

No more holding on.
It’s time to let go.
I can feel you distant.
You already know.
No more fighting now.

It’s time to be on your own.
I can feel you faded.
I’m sure you know that

Nothing could come between us.
We used to say all the time.
Nothing could come between us.
We used to be just fine.
Something did come between us.
All we do now is fuss.
Nothing can come between us.
Something already did that.

Oh,

Nothing could come between us.
We used to say all the time.
Nothing could come between us.
We used to be just fine.
There’s no more hiding now.
Truth is deep within the lies.
Something did come between us.
All we do now is fuss.
Nothing can come between us.
‘Cause something already did that.

Jasper

You remind me of Corduroy bear.
With your red jacket,
You could be a British red coat guard,
Protecting me through the night.
Something about bears bring me smiles.
Like the chubby-silly ol’ Winnie-the-Pooh.
A best friend waiting to hug you
Through the down pouring rain.
You, Jasper, the 2014 Harrods bear,
I’m glad to have you as my birthday gift.

Under the Weeping Willow Tree

Once upon a time, there was a boy misunderstood. He loved adventure, but was looked down upon as no good. At nights, he’d sit under a tree wondering why, never shedding a tear in front of their eye. He met a girl so sweet who thought he could change. Only to find out it was all a dream. The girl ran away taking nothing; not even his heart.

Days passed. The sun would rise and it would pass. Everyone was becoming who they were meant to be. Some graduated with honors; some married; some becoming mothers and fathers. All blessed with futures, he sat there, loneliness stabbing at his already shattered heart. Wondering if it be better to depart. He looks to the cloudless blue sky saying, “God, what is there for me here? Why all the misery and fear?” He sat still under the same old tree and began to write. He wrote and wrote ’til he no longer could write. Under the tree he weeped, ’til he could no longer weep. Then closed his eyes with a smile knowing it was time.

The skies began to darken and cloud. As rain fell onto the tree. Thunder began to sound. The stems, the leaves that saved him from the bright morning sun each year began to tumble droplets of rain one by one on his final resting frontier.
