    The Elephant And The Crocodile.

    The Elephant and the crocodile went down to the sea,
    Yes the elephant and the crocodile as strange as it may be.
    The bay it did divide them, the waves did lap between,
    A stranger sight in all my life I've never ever seen.
    The crocodile upon a rock did bask beneath the sun,
    The elephant with his trunk squirted water just for fun.
    And as the day grew to a close they both did close their eyes,
    And were lulled to sleep by laping waves and gentle seagull cries.
    Now it came that an old sea witch was passing as they slept,
    And slowly and on stealthy foot upon the beach she crept.
    And she did brew a wicked spell to last for all of time,
    And what was left behind that day is reason for this rhyme.
    The spell she cast would hold them fast and keep them ever here,
    The length of time they've been here is obvious and clear.
    For the moss it grows upon their backs, their bones have hardened till,
    The inabilaty to move has turned them statue still.
    So now they sit in rocky stillness till the spell be broken,
    Not a breath will pass their lips and not a word be spoken.
    For now they are but two big hills that drop down to the sea,
    And here they'll stay forever more until they are set free.
    What you ask are those two hills, what name gives them their form?
    Today the names they go by are the Big and Little Orme.
    But if you look most carfully their shape is plane to see,
    The elephant and the crocodile who went down to the sea.

    Remember me,
    when you hold a picture,
    of the way it used to be.
    Remember me,
    when you read the words,
    that I wrote to you in poems.
    Remember me,
    the sound of my laughter,
    and the sound of my cries.
    I hope you remember me,
    for when I have crossed over,
    I don't know if They will let me,
    Remember you.

    One more chance to set things right
    So Iím throwing the card back and forth
    And Iím scanning the scene
    But all I can see are these two sad faced kings
    Back and forth, back and forth
    One more chance not to screw things up
    Back and forth, back and forth
    The lightís still flashing
    But I canít find my way out
    Back and forth, back and forthÖ

    The heart is unlucky,
    A direct hit.
    I wish the pain would kill,
    But it does not heed my wishes.
    It continues to linger,
    Hurting more with,
    Each passing day,
    Until someone comes
    To pull it out and allow
    My heart to heal its wound.
    I will bear that scar,
    Proud yet sad.
    To my grave
    Will my memories follow.

    I don't know what to say to them
    I'm thinking as they cry
    Divorce is not a contest
    The kids are not the prize

    We don't have to live in the same house
    To be their mom and dad
    They are beautiful reminders of
    The love that we once had

    We each hold parts of history
    Their roots and who they are
    They need us both, our love for them
    In life will take them far

    No mattter how we've hurt each other
    They are not to blame
    Remember when you play your games
    It's them who'll feel the pain

    Look at them and see the lost
    Innocence in their eyes
    Divorce is not a contest
    The kids are not the prize

    Her cloak whips around her legs
    the only chill she feels is inside
    A moan of despair, low, involved, mornful
    And she wouldn't regret loving you if it ment you must leave
    but her stomich is ill from too much emotion

    She watches the horrizon
    waiting for something forgotten or unknown
    A cry of frusteration, throbbing, intense, desperate
    And she wouldn't regret loving you if it ment she couldn't love again
    but her feet are sore from paceing

    Her breath carries her pain past strawberry lips
    An expresion of hoplessness heard by deaf ears
    A sigh of emptyness, relenting, misunderstood, lost
    And she wouldn't regret loving you as no other could
    but there are tears on her pillow and you know why.

    Of u
    The past
    The smiles
    The laughter
    The awakenings
    Inside me burn
    Igniting fires for me to sit here on the floor once more

    Dreamin dreams of when you come to me
    Not in my mind not in the night but
    Broad daylight
    For everyone to see
    Not just me and my mind's eye runnin away with me again
    The lil things we will do
    Layin my hand on your chest as you sleep
    Feelin the rise and fall of ur sweet breath
    Tracin the laugh lines you already have
    Imagining the ones you will have some old day from now

    Which leads me to imaginings of rocking on old chairs side by side
    Worn and tattered
    Rememberin when we were young of layin in your arms watchin
    You sleep tracin the laugh lines you didnt have imaginin the ones you
    Would have and comparing notes
    Was i right?
    Was i wrong?
    Dont really matter
    Just as long as im growin old with you

    Smiling with our children as
    Laughter floats from the grandbabies
    Playin over on the green grass
    That i watched you mow and
    Teased you about your muscles whistlein sayin
    'So Sexy!'

    Sittin here on the floor
    Wanting to put every lil bit of faith i have left in
    You and Me

    Can go so far

    Cant imagine my life without you in it
    I can sit here on this floor and see you standin
    Over right there
    Thats what i can see
    So dont let me tell myself this aint real
    Break away these walls
    Dont give up on me & you
    I Love You

    Alas! I See A Distant Shimmer,
    A Warmth Eases My Pain.

    A Peace Unkown To Me Descends,
    As The Light Surrounds.
    The Chains Of Fate Begin To Bend,
    At Loves Sweet Sounds.

    As Im Lifted From The Ground,
    By An Angelic Hand.
    I Came To See A World Without Bounds,
    A Distant Land.

    My Angel, My Shining Star,
    I Do Know Who You Are.
    Though Miles Keep Us Apart,
    We Will Get A Fresh Start.

    Battle-scarred through survival.
    Its gnarled and arthritic limbs
    stretching towards the sky.
    Vainly reaching for the heavens
    it can sense.
    But has no hope
    of attaining.

    So young were you, oh, sweet, little, Fairy,
    When torn from your Hills, Friends and Family,
    By a plain 4 eyed troll on a raid from Redmond,
    Locked you up in Puter, didn't give a Reason.

    So strained are you oh sweet little Fairy,
    As the power quakes you into Duty,
    Shoving the trons with your sore tiny Hands,
    Until, switched off, your ordeal finally Ends

    So lone are you oh, sweet little Fairy,
    When the dark falls, wishing for a Sweetie.
    None will you find, Doomed to play with your Shelf,
    Of quirky Dreams sure bound to turn you Deaf

    So brave are you, oh, sweet, little, Fairy.
    Peering through screen, never showing Envy,
    Pucked Sysiphus of the Silicon Age,
    Enduring, silent, your nameless Outrage

    But dumb are you, oh, sweet, little, Fairy.
    Loading yourself, like a bleached Blondie,
    All the same, with bytes of bugs and Spam,
    Unaware how to us these bytes do Harm.

    Are you really, oh, sweet little Fairy?
    Wouldn't you by any chance find it Funny?
    To leave us dazed with our mouth wide Gapping,
    As you crash' ours of work without Saving

    Does it matter oh, sweet, little Fairy
    Should your case anyhow call for Mercy?
    Sooner than later, you're bound to yank a Nerve.
    It seems you're getting the Fate you Deserve.
