It’s Not Over

He chased her once
How he did
All around the world
He went for her, half mad
She would be his girl
But it didn’t turn out that way
He lost in the end
Someone else got her heart
Disconsolate
He fell into a sadness
That feeling of dread
For she was gone
But he wanted her back
Was there a light ahead?

He spent a lifetime missing her
Decades, alone in his home
Filled with memories and her spirit
Poor guy, nothin’ goin’
Then one day she reappeared
That was that
Said she’d come to her senses
He was where it’s at

They now live together
His dream a reality
He’s a new man
They’re in love, you see

She’s back in his life
He in hers
Never give up is the lesson
Love always comes first

It wasn’t over
It still isn’t over

Time Won’t Catch Me

Time it won’t catch up with me
I’ll just walk a little faster
It’s for me to accept
Time doesn’t stop
Certainly not for me
Yes, there’s inevitably
But I’m not looking back
Not trying to be
Anything more
Than a real man
Seeking the real me

The sober truth
Is that we’re gonna leave
But until then
Time won’t catch me

What Is Life

What is life
If not lived for love?
To be kind, the ideal
To have won and lost
True romance has a cost
A life is moments
Of joy and pain
Of remorse and longing
And the stain of love gone wrong
But there is always hope
Always a new dawn
I’m a mixture of dreams I still have
And those gone wrong
Of the love that I have shared
Forever to go on.

What a Lot He Got

So beautiful in her sundress and hat
He didn’t look so bad himself wearing that cravat
There glowing, really showing feline grace
He succumbed as as any man would
What a pretty face

Cannes is for everyone
One relaxes at an enjoyable pace
Uncanny what can happen there
Into life you’ll race
As he once did, he’ll always love that place

That night is still alive
For he met his love
One that does now surely thrive
Destiny met happenstance
They fit hand in glove

It’s repartee he wanted
Repartee he got
Plus a beauty who so smoothly sent her heart
Romance that shall last forever
Exactly what he sought
What a lot he got

Locked Forever

It was a moment that led into an hour
Then a day, then a month, then years,
Then a life
A life of love
From an instant to a minute
And then on
To an endless supply of mirth and merriment
And just plain contentment
As we ambled down the road
Together, together
Ever, ever
Never to sever
Locked forever
However we go
Wherever for we know
We’re not going anywhere without the other

Telegraph and Bancroft

It all came together at Telegraph and Bancroft
Swami used to hold forth there
Doing his rant
One vendor sold freshly squozen OJ
Though he had a law degree
That’s the way it was in 1970

The entrance is still the same to UCB
New arrivals come each day
Where they will work and learn and play
And maybe fall in love, as I once did
Now long ago and far away

I made friends, I grew up, I miss those days
Filled with wonder and amazement
That set my life ablaze

I Want to Be Your Man

I’m not sure I deserve you
One so very cool
A winner by any measure
While I’m just an average Joe

Your winsome smile
Come hither look
Stop me in my tracks
I can’t believe this is happening
So I tell myself

I will try my best for you
For you so inspire
No one can match your loveliness
Nor shall I tire of your company
The aura that you have
You’re better than I could have dreamed
I want to be your man

Loving You, Loving You

Loving you isn’t a choice
It’s more than words can say
Loving you is who I am
Today and every day
Loving you, loving you

This is our time
Today, tomorrow
And eternity
Love and happiness our tools
The love of you and me

The best thing about it all
Is how I enjoy your good company
I don’t wish for anything more
We’re just cool on every scene

Loving you, loving you
Each and every day
Loving you, loving you
Always in all ways
Loving you, loving you
You save me every day
With your sweet talk and wisdom
It’s always been that way

Another Year Done

Another year done
Another year gone
Another year to come
Ups and downs
Grins and frowns
Doing it and taking it in
Losses and wins
Friends made
And to arrive in the bye and bye
Sorrow over missing ones
Loves gone away
As life goes on
As each day dawns
As we await our fates
I’m a better man in many ways
Still so very far to go
We made it through another year
Where next will the wild wind blow?

We’ll be all right

We’ll be all right
So I say
We better be all right
Or I have failed
So hope is what I have
Hope is what we need
Hope, precious hope
In hope I believe

We been together for so many years
That’s an indication
We need never fear
For we carry with us
An enduring, endearing spirit
That fuels our every day
We gone so far already
We’ll go all the way
