Forgotten Soldier From Vietman


Walking down the street everyone passes him by
They look down at his feet cause they can’t look him in the eye
Tattered jeans and worn out shoes
They have nothing much to say
They don’t know it was Vietman that left him this away

He’s a forgotten soldier not much good to anyone
No one seems to care
That he was once somebody’s son
Forgotten soldier
There are thousands to his one
Nothing much to eat
Sleeping on the street when the day is done
Forgotten soldier from Vietnam

He had plans to live a full life, he Was almost 21
Just taken Susie as his wife, in 1971
But then his country called, and said it was time to fight
So he walked away from his hopes and dreams
To do what he thought was right
But when he returned he was laughed at and spit upon
A broken man with a broken country , a broken heart with a broken home
The nightmares still haunts him, and sometimes he just can’t sleep
So he wanders like a long lost soul down a dead end street

He’s a forgotten soldier not much good to anyone
No one seems to care
That he was once somebody’s son
Forgotten soldier
There are thousands to his one
Nothing much to eat
Sleeping on the street when the day is done
Forgotten soldier from Vietnam

Do Not Partake

By Linda Way

You opened the door and I walked through it
Tempted by Heavenly morsels from your Sunday feast
My heart desired to have it all, and for a moment
I distracted myself from the sun shining brightly outside
Then I regained my senses
Slamming the door shut behind me
Beautiful colors, like the color of love
Flammed my imagination
I desired to take a bite
But some fruit once bitten leaves a bitter taste
or worse yet......Poison

~Cry of the Wolf~

 Like the frozen tundra we once walked upon
Your heart is frozen beneath the sun
And I'd give anything to bring you back to me
Do you sometimes feel on a winter's night
My arms around you tight
And dream of the love we swore for eternity
The cry of the wolf was our only song
Someday he'll call you back here to my arms
And you will know that I'm the one
That was made for you
We loved and laughed until we cried
In the darkness made our light
There was no such thing as night
We were save and warm
But for now, winter's dreams must keep
As our love slumbers and sleeps
Till a new moon, and a new sun
Smile over future's horizon
Reuniting two lost souls.

Do You Remember?




Do you remember the joy of spring
When our love was fresh and new
We lived for the moon's silver beams
There was only me and you
Do you remember all the laughter
Falling softly through summer skies
And the sound of a soft refrain
As it whispered our good-byes
Do you remember the touch of autum
As the leaves began to turn brown
And those feelings, oh how we fought them
And we remembered Love Lost Love Found
Do you remember the coldness of winter
Where future, past and present lie
Some dreams awaited to blossom
While our dreams could only die
Do you remember how Summer, fall and winter came
Seasons changed and love turned to past
Trees turned green, birds sang
And we remembered when love did last

Narcissistic Love


You've got a wall that's a mile thick
All I do is match you, brick for brick
The mortar that keeps us apart is fear

I sometimes do the opposite of what I feel
Till I no longer know, if what I feel is real
I'd rather push you away than hold you near

I keep praying for an earthquake that never comes
I'm tired of this fortress that stands alone
Beside another, cold as a stone
Barren, impenetrable
