Frozen Frames

wedding

A door opens, a door closes;
In my mind, your pictures are frozen.

The time we’ve spent has been true.
The ups, the downs
Think of all we’ve been through.

I can still see your smile in the summer sun
I always knew I’d stay – you thought I’d run.

Frozen frames of you forever in my memory
I close my eyes – you’re all I see
I’m here to stay, it’s our destiny.

Our lives will pass like seasons
The bitter cold, summer’s demons.

The sun will rise, the sun will set
We’ll get lost, we’ll place our bets,
But it’s you I’ll never second guess.

A door opens, a door closes;
In my mind, your pictures are frozen.

The Bond Can’t Be Broken

I was stranded and alone
You came and raised me as your own
You lied for me, you’d die for me;
You’d do anything for your family.

Caught in the middle
Mother knows best
You solved every riddle
We put you to the test.

A mother by nature
Saving us from danger
The tables have turned;
It’s now our concern.

The bond can’t be broken
You were sent from above
It’s rarely spoken,
But I’m here for you, my love.

If You Could Go Back…

If you could go back,
Would you do it again?
If you could go back,
Would you change, my friend?

You may wish to live each path
While each day is pressing
Today’s the same, no aftermath
What could have been keeps you guessing

Be here today,
Disregard tomorrow
Sit down and stay;
Forget your sorrow.

You long to visit the past
You’d change this and that
Life: better by a million-fold,
But would you really be so bold?

Would it all be perfect?
Would it all work out?
Would it be worth it?
You have your doubts.

You’d still have to roll the dice
You’d still have to get it right
Life isn’t always agreeable
You must accept the unforeseeable….
