In the years since Iíve come in to being And only God knows when that day was I have lived and died A thousand times over . . . So many years, so many dreams I know not my name My purpose to be Who or what I love Or what I am Or why I am . . . It seems that I had it all Everything was so well planned It seems as tho a thousand more lives Shall never fill Those hours left ahead Or reclaim those left behind . . . I feel as if I have waded In a long stream Or a wind swept desert With no trace of me Ever having been here Ever having dreamed . . . You are but a part Of this fragment of my being I am but a phantom shadow Of a vision youíve only dreamed I walk through timeís doors I pass through everyone I meet . . . A touch of light A touch of darkness A ray of joy A streak of passion A heart of love A body of mist . . . What is man made of? So what am I? Some call me a man Some call me other names Some do not know me Some do not care to . . . Know that I seek life I seek perfection and truth I seek knowledge of all I seek wisdom and loyalty I seek love most of all . . . Who will need me now? Who will need me tomorrow? Need is blood and blood is life Who drinks my blood Is filled with me and lives In all that I am . . . . . 1981 wgm
I thought I tasted you And then too there was your scent I thought I was holding you And then the dawn stole you away Night after night Dream after dream You come and you go And you leave me spent I am filled to the brim And then left empty I am overcome with joy And then drowned in tears To hold you To taste you To kiss you I would give all I have Is this dream so impossible? Why canít it come true? What will it take? For me to have you? How can I prove my love When you are not here to see? How can I win your hand If it is not flesh for me to take? I think by now I have made love to you In every corner of the world In every corner of my mind I think by now I have walked with you hand in hand Down every moonlit path In every corner of my heart We have dipped in every pond Camped in every forest Seen the sites of the world And even cuddled in our own home I long to sleep to dream I dread to sleep for I must awake If only I never awoke At least I would always have you in dreams I give you my heart Is it not enough? I give you my soul What more can I give? Is it love you seek? I have it in abundance Is it passion you need? It burns in my blood for you All that I have All that I ever will have All that I am All that I ever will be is yours Is this dream so impossible? Why canít it come true? What will it take For me to have you? Wgm 1/7/02
The water laps against the shore, Somewhere a loon cries out. I sit alone with my knees pressed tight against my chin, The lake dances with the moons reflection. When the childhood shadows dreamt sweet dreams, I felt the urge to call your name. Popsicles were cool and comforting, Yet I knew so much more than I dared to know. Fairy tales were meant for other days, Where the sun shone in a wind swept sky. Words written on simple pages, Pictures of objects long forgotten. Loving you hurts my heart, My mind refuses to rationalize. I know you don't exist, But I can't change how I feel. The wind rushes across the smooth surface, Blowing my hair into my eyes. Was that a loving kiss?. Or just the elements answering me. The stars seem so close, Bringing you closer to me. Twinkling like the sparkle in your eyes, Knowing I will never gaze into them. Darkness seems my only friend,For it brings you closer to me. No writing eases my ache, Only intensifying my hearts loneliness. Suddenly a warm breeze dries my eyes, The scent of you touches my face. Gentle pressure on my lips, Tells me you are here.
