Missing You
Mood:  sad

Karen Jo and Alan

There's something you should know,

That is we're going to miss you

as you have to go,

On your new adventures

accross the big old pond,

Yet in our hearts you'll always be

as you sing your beautiful songs,

And we'll always remember

the smiles upon your face

that brought us so much happiness

each and every day,

Though your journeys may take you

oh so far away,

The love we shared together

that will always stay,

No we won't say goodbye

to you or the kids either,

Instead we'll say a little so long,

And we'll see you later,

All our love to you both,

And the kids too.

For Karen Jo, Alan Vennes and their three wonderful dogs. Let them follow and find they're dreams where ever they may roam.

That I Am
Mood:  party time!

I was born in the summer

57 was the year,

I was weaned at an early age

then started drinking  beer,

Well right now you're sayin

that feller's full of it,

And oh yes that I am

So this ya gotta hear,

Twenty four hours in a day

and twenty four beers in a case,

It don't take long to figure out

that full of it I am.

Your Laugh
Mood:  happy

To hear your laugh it warms my heart  there's joy all in the air,

Your love for life and happiness there's no sound to which compare,

To hear you laugh with all that joy puts a smile upon my face,

Your laugh it has a special place so deep within my heart,

And on that note I'll leave these words, You and I shall never part,

I thank you now for all your love and your beautiful laugh.


Dedicated to and written for a beautiful woman who shall forever hold a place in my heart and my love, Shannon M Scully.  May she sail through all life's little storms and arrive safely in a sunshining port.

On the Green
Mood:  lucky

I live in a place where we really all should be

A little back street called Saint George's Green,

And like that old fable it's where dragons are tamed

Life's old dragons that come into play,

Lost loves, lost hopes, and yes even dreams,

We strive to keep all that here on Saint George's Green,

Life is harsh, sometimes bitter and not always what it seems,

Yet here life's love and happiness  grows strong, it redeem's,

Here in this place on Saint George's Green,

For those living here we're a family you see,

Where life's big old dragons are conquered on,

Saint George's Green...

In The Wind written by oily jack 1980
Mood:  quizzical

These are restless times I feel

Without your love to keep me still,

The winds are calling from far away

Trying so hard to lead me astray,

I hear them calling I feel their pull,

And if, If I only could,

I'd mount my chariot of chrome and steel

Where once again these winds I'd feel,

Dancing and licking about my face

Carrying me home to my place,

In the wind.
