When Darkness Falls

1 Comment

Warmth of friendship and love drifted peacefully through the air
The world was free and open and we could live without care

That bullets would rain down and bombs would rip life from us
Stealing away life, stealing away peace and stealing away trust

Some chose to burn the thin curtains that shield our kind eyes
From the horrors of the world filled with death, disease, flies

Our illusion was shattered like a mirror reflecting our beauty
And death was brought to us as if it was their duty

To smash to pieces the fine statues of liberty and freedom
Breaking the hearts of hundreds of innocent victims

And the ones who love them who may never hold them again
Or hear the soft words of “I love you” with joy spoken

Instead sirens screamed out deep into the night
And we held on to each other, not in love, but in fright

Quickly we offer our own freedom and liberty for security and safety
But as Franklin said we receive neither the safety we want but lost liberty

Like the great terror brought to the streets of Paris long before
The guillotine erected in the center of Paris may fall once more

If we frightened specks of nothingness demand action and guarantee
That no harm with come to the lives we cling to feebly

And cower under the covers while spiting hate akin to the hate that killed
Never finding a solution but pouring more into the hateful cup over filled

Until more blood is spilt and more hatred built and more bile coughed
On the streets, in the neighborhood, in the churches and mosques

When darkness falls and fear takes hold there is not end to the madness
Hatred and violence in the name of safety only create more darkness

Only by standing brave and tall in face of hateful words and angry eyes
Can we last until morning and enjoy the bright rays of the sunrise

My Baby Boy
Not a baby any more
So full of life and joy
Excited for what it has in store
Becoming a man from a boy

Like looking into a mirror for me
Many years ago when I was little
My spirit was crushed underneath
Torn apart, caught in the middle

So yours, my love, I’ll protect
I’ll fight for you again dangers
I’ll guard your innocent spirit
And comfort you when you’re in anger

You’re free, my son, to love life
Play and laugh, love and live
I’ll ensure you’re free from strife
All I have, to you I will give

Take my hand and feel safe
With me no one can steal your smile
We’ll laugh and sing as we race
I love you now and always my child

Mary Ford is dead to me
She’s dead to to me
She’s dead to me

Mary Ford is dead to me
She’s buried in the ground

Mary Ford is dead to me
She betrayed me
No loyalty

Mary Ford is dead to me
She’s buried in the ground

Mary Ford is dead to me
She turned on me
She’s hated me

Mary Ford is dead to me
She’s buried in the ground

Mary Ford is dead to me
She’s badly hurt me
So very deeply

Mary Ford is dead to me
She’s buried in the ground

Mary Ford is dead to me
She love conspiracy
And controversy

Mary Ford is dead to me
She’s buried in the ground

Mary Ford is dead to me
Says she loves me
But really hates me

Mary Ford is dead to me
She’s buried in the ground

Mary Ford is dead to me
She’s and evil harpy
Wrecking ships at sea

Mary Ford is dead to me
She’s buried in the ground

Mary Ford is dead to me
She’s dead to me
She’s dead to me

Mary Ford is dead to me
She’s buried in the ground
