Who Am I?

advent 1

Who am I, in the light of a candle
burning in a circle of evergreen
Who am I, as I wait on the mystery
coming to us as a promise unseen

Wondrin’ and waitin’, I watch the light
of a star that’s shinin’ in the heavens at night
Could it be possible that I’m loved by you?
Is the candle burnin’ a message true?

It’s easy to doubt, it’s easy to fear
Often I wonder if I’ve got it clear
The living rumor of a love so pure
is the healing my heart needs for sure

Candles burnin’, north, south, east, west,
with the light of the center candle, confess
Shinin’ a call for peace on earth
rekindling in each the spark of our worth

Who am I, in the light of a candle
burning in a circle of evergreen
Who am I, as I wait on the mystery
coming to us as a promise unseen

Who am I…

Who am I?

So Many and So Many Times

Some days I mourn for the might have been

And long for the things that seem lost

The fame, the road, and the roaring of fans

The romance, the lights, and the kisses they’d toss

 

I wonder if I’d have made a different choice

Would I be who I have become?

And then the keys or guitar or the woman I love

Calm my fears and they welcome me home

 

Living as me is a puzzle I’ve found

Battered and buffered in the waves of sound

The roaring of wind and sighs of the sea

A shattered canoe but yet again found

 

I’ve tried and I’ve tried as hard as I know

In a sea the color of rhymes

The storms and calm times they’ve ebbed and they flowed

I’ve failed so many and so many times

 

Quiet at night I listen to her breathe

And I rest near the touch of her skin

The dreams and nightmares all fade away

As I look toward tomorrow again

Who I am…

If I haven’t made it clear, let me try again…

I’m a God-haunted artist informed and fueled by a passionate pursuit of truth and hope.

I find beauty in surprising places and offer grace to as many people as my frailty allows.

I’ve been blessed and I’ve suffered. I am human and I will honor the humans around me.

I don’t have many answers but I’m aware of quite a few questions.

Life isn’t about getting rich or gaining power over others.

My longing is to offer love and life to all who will receive it.

Mystery is imminent for all those will seek it amidst the simplicity of life.

Those who are emminent are rarely trustworthy guides but may, at times, provide examples of how not to find peace.

I’m not always comfortable in my own skin but I’ve no other skin to wear so I’ll try to be myself as much as possible.

I’m on a journey.

I hope you are as well…
