HAIR OF SILVER

Hair of silver
Falls untamed
Over blemished skin
In perfect compliment
Graceful aging
And timeless beauty

YOU VIEW LOVE AS A SNARE

You view love as a snare
Of ordinary everyday life
And wonít be trapped into
The ritual taking of a wife
But who will support and
Comfort in times of strife
If you donít open your heart
To the simple joys of life

THE LOVE THAT DARE NOT SPEAK ITS NAME

The love that dare not
Speak its name
For fear of bringing
Upon them, shame

Denial of their love
Would be a cruel betrayal
For inside they knew
It was perpetual

Try as the families might
It would not be swept
Beneath a convenient carpet
Their bond was kept

And when they were safe
Behind a closed door
Their love was expressed
As true lovers adore

IF LONELINESS IS YOUR FEAR

If loneliness is your fear
Thereís no need to shed a tear
For the solution is clear
Just find a love sincere
Someone to hold dear
And watch sadness disappear

OH FOR A SIGHT OF YOUR SMILE

Oh for a sight of your smile
Soothing as chamomile
To ease away my frown
Picking me up when Iím down

MY BROWN EYED FRAU

Where are you now
My brown eyed frau
It breaks my heart
Now that weíre apart
Sugar sweet brunette
My dearest Margaret
Wherever you might be
Come back to me
