I watch the doves dip and weave
Chasing one another,
Yet I grieve
For a life I’ve dreamt about
Since I was a child,
In a grey, aging, house
There were giggles
And four children the cause,
Despite their loss
Of the everyday normalcy
Of Mom being near,
Nothing making sense, life unclear
If love exists, breathes, you say
Will it fulfill my wish,
Not run – at the top of my list
So sovereign Cardinals in my view
Standing watch, yearning
Might keep me from melancholy.
I’ve always loved Otis Redding. I think Marc does a fantastic job on a timeless plea for love.

upon yours, wishful thinking

Convinces me to sing,
Of aquamarine skies,
With hues of tangerine.
Leaving me to whisper,
With no idea what to say,
Meet me in my dreams,
Help me forget about today…
Sat delicate, pay no mind,
She isn’t for you, not your kind.
Awaits a brave fellow,
Adorned in yellow,
To match her, petal for petal.
No disrespect intended, you see,
She thrives on his primitive abilities,
To find her, Melancholy Mellow, lingering.
