I TRY

Collaboration with Deborah Brooks Langford for our coming book..

I Try

My mind tries
to relinquish my inner state
it longs for a place to help me hold my head
someplace i wont be tarnished
some place free from harm...

I try

not to cry
I hang my head and sigh
I need a place for me to encounter
a loving place I can reside...

I try

not to sigh, only smile
with heart in hand I pray so loud
Dear Lord help me
be what I used to be
why can't I run and play?

I Try

oh the desire to dream again
I must know I won't be free of pain
I must try to hug again
where could this place be found
a day of laughter like a sweet melodic song
where has this place gone?

I stand

I stand before you and I try
a smile for you and I cry
all I want to be is what  I use to be
I love you all
please try...

Please Try

to understand
love me no matter what life brings
I may not be here tomorrow
I don't want to fall apart
I just need you to understand
I am not what I used to be
I am very tired...

Debbie

I try

To waltz with your words,
wipe your tears  and listen
to your sighs..
The melancholy of your pen
gives me pain and streams down
my silent tears..

I try

To hold you so tight
and to let you feel the deepest sorrow
of my soul..
When you are feeling down
seems the world for me
doesn't go round..

I try

To bring you into a place called paradise,
where flowers bloom and butterflies fly..
I want to see you smile
as we dance and play full of joy beneath the sky

I try

To protect you and shield you with my wings so strong,
to bring you to that velvety clouds I highly soar
To that splendid  kingdom with many kind souls we gracefully roam
To wander within the garden of our hearts as we sing our songs..

I stand

For you  and I always give you my smile
And I want you to be full of glee as you come with me
You are beautiful and lovely and you will always be
Please dry your tears for me

Please try

To understand  life is to be cherished
We have to kiss our pains and embrace
We will not be forever here ..
On this mundane  world we are only stranger
We will be returning  to the beautiful place called heaven..
were pains have no place in there..
