Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid

Words

Hurtful words

Spoken in anger
S
poken in haste
Spoken in sarcasm
Words that weren’t meant

When these words have been spoken
The damage has already been done
These words can be forgiven
But they will never be forgotten

Before you speak, remember this…

Some things are better
Left unsaid

The Magic Of Music

There’s a magic in music
A feeling of joy
Songs that bring memories
With each beat of your heart

A toe tapping rhythm
That your parents called noise
It starts in your head
Travels down through your heart

Snapping your fingers
Tapping your feet
Lifting your spirits
Bringing a smile

Music is love
Music is life
Music will lift you
And make everything right

Rock or Country
Slow sexy jazz
Classical and New Age
Gospel and Big Band

Your choice doesn’t matter
They all bring the same joy
Let your heart feel the magic
Let your lips form a smile

Let the music embrace you
If just for awhile
Let the magic of music
Show you the way

You’ll find that the music
Will brighten your day

Walking Through My Memories

As I grow older I look back on my life
Memories of younger days that make me smile
Piano lessons, trying a trumpet, didn’t work for me
Finally the drums and I knew what I’d be

Playing in bands, high school and college
Rock and roll bands and big bands too
Marching bands and symphony orchestras
Keeping the beat became what I do

A Missile Combat Crew Commander at age 22
In a band in North Dakota called the Zodiac Zoo
Playing Hendrix and Cream to relieve the stress
Of knowing I controlled 10 nuclear missiles

I served my country and did what I needed to do
Days of glory, music and love
L
ost our first baby while I was on alert
It was a boy, we were filled with hurt

A few years later God gave us a son
I was working at a tourist attraction, Ausable Chasm
Playing in a band called “The Now & Thens”
Writing songs and rocking weekends at the Friendly Tavern

After vacations in Florida it became clear
I’d been sprinkled with pixie dust
So we packed up and moved
Kissimmee, Florida – home of the Mouse

Started working at EPCOT
A tour guide on the Land boat ride
World of Motion and others
But soon found I couldn’t earn enough

Ended up in hotel and resort management
Did really well
Became a resort General Manager
Until the BIG HURT

Lost my first wife too early
Pulmonary fibrosis they said
The only thing I knew
Was that she was dead

One door had closed, but another door opened
Now I’m remarried and retired in Tennessee
My life has been filled with its ups and downs
But I’m still here and I’m sticking around

Our Pain Won’t Go Away

The pain is pretty constant now
It’s with us all the time
We just want to go to sleep
And wake up feeling fine

The pain pills take the edge off
But they don’t stop the ache
And even if we fall asleep
It comes back when we wake

Like many others that we know
We live with pain each day
And now the politicians want
To take our pills away

We must protect them from themselves”
The politicians say
We think they need to take our pain
And bear it for a day

The regulations that they want
Will only cause more pain
But they don’t really give a damn

They don’t even know our names
