    If I had all I need
    I know I would be complete

    Just knowing
    What that is …is hard
    Not hard to define, but hard to achieve
    Because it would involve more than me

    If I need a hand up
    Could I count on someone
    If I need a place to rest
    Would you allow me to lie down

    I want to express
    Do you have the time? :)

    I can be wordy
    Entertaining
    Make the hour go by fast

    Just the one thing
    That I can’t do
    Is get your cooperation, understanding
    Some time to share all this with you

    Powerful and poignant piece, Hodee. Thought-provoking and moving.


    Well, just sit yourself down and unload
    I know, the build-up, if not released, will implode or explode
    So, share with me the straights and the bends in YOUR road
    Relay to me what personal choices and divine Grace have bestowed
    Let's jubilate together on your good days
    When your heart was glad and your smile glowed
    And then hold hands
    Through the ones when your footsteps feel shortened & slowed
    When the weight upon your back makes your spine a bit bowed
    But yet, unbroken
    And whatever else, I'll just read it in your eyes....
    You can leave it unspoken.

    I'll just read it in your eyes....It will be there

    Well, just sit yourself down and unload
    That is all a man needs.
    Someone he can tell all the things on his mind
    No need to provide an answer
    He really knows the truth
    He is conflicted in what his decision has to be in this condition.


    I know, the build-up, if not released, will implode or explode
    But your soft shoulder provides him a place to unfold
    After the loving hand you provide
    Has caressed his head, rubbed his back all’s OK


    So, share with me the straights and the bends in YOUR road
    As man I will try but can never say all I hold inside
    Maybe it will sort of whack
    It’s possible it will change how you view me in fact
    It may be that I am not into sharing it all... at once
    I promise to give all the bends and straights that you need
    So not to deceive… or disappoint
    Have you wondering with who you give


    Relay to me what personal choices and divine Grace have bestowed
    I can do that dear heart
    With you I am whole


    Let's jubilate together on your good days
    We will jubilate like the party won’t end
    As partners, shared relations, lovers and friends


    When your heart was glad and your smile glowed
    And then hold hands
    Through the ones when your footsteps feel shortened & slowed
    When the weight upon your back makes your spine a bit bowed




    Thank you Baby
    For being the one to let me be
    The whole and congruent and pieces you see.

    Holding hands.
    I like that a lot
    That is something I look forward to as we share and we walk

    Thru this life...build a life
    Take on life as we grow

    Turning towards the comforts each impart and we know
    Are strong and has foundation
    To build and to plan
    Then each end of the day
    Just lay with this man
    My mind will never wonder
    I know you’re so true
    No other… no matter the trouble
    Me no other …Will ever come between me and you
