Bird of Paradise with fan



Bird of Paradise and DMX

IN THE SPAN OF A SUNRISE

BRILLIANT IS THE SUN AS IT SHINES UPON THE MORNING OF MY DAY
THE SKY IS BRIGHT, VAST IN ITS LOVELINESS
BEAUTIFUL AND CLEAR
WARMING ME WITH GODS LOVE
SHINING EVER SO BRIGHT
MAKING THE FLOWERS GROW
AND FILLING THE GREEN GRASS WITH DEW
TREES STAND TALL AND BASK IN THE ARRAY OF SUNLIGHT
BIRDS FLY OVERHEAD IN YOUR GLOW
THEY CHIRP THE SWEET SONGS OF THE DAY TO COME
DEAR LORD, YOU'VE BLESSED ME SO.

Memories

The morning rays shines upon my pillow
and yet again I rise without you
With a heavy heart I rise to meet the day
hoping that it will send you my way
As I put on my robe and go make my tea
I sometimes wonder if you're thinking of me
Like the moments and times you've crossed my mind
Those memories of you were so sublime
Your lips your eyes your tender touch
in my memories is were we always hooked up
In my memories we didn't have fight for days
not talk to each other not share a loving gaze
In my memories we laughed and we taked for hours
We took long baths together we shared hot showers
In my memories you massaged my feet
you gave me drink you fixed my meals to eat
In my memories I cried at the sight of you
I still loved you in spite of you
But I can't live on your memories alone
I have to move on in order to be strong
I appreciate it for what it holds for me
so I won't curse it or defile it with a bad memory
I will put you in my album of life
no more bad memories I'll have of you to cause me strife
I'll bless it and ask God to bless you too
For in doing so my heart won't have to let you go
and I can keep the memories of you too.
