We Were Once There Lest We Forget


When the tears came to my eyes

I knew something powerful overtook me

The tears were not for my sorrow’s

But for you in your time of need

The courage to forgive your past

Put behind you the blame and proceed

Refreshes your soul and cleanses you

The mind now in the present to exceed

The price we pay if we earn

The lessons in which we achieve

Are seldom given the attention

That will provide in our time of need

The strength of our conditioning

Contingent on the foundation that it is built

Is subject to tribulation

The source for much of our guilt

We bond to others when we care

We experience them as they are

We create a pathway to nurture

Trying to recalibrate to the North Star

We all need a compass

Our navigation is often upset

Be there for your friends and loved ones

We were once there lest we forget

The Archer and the Crab


I wasn’t looking

But then you came upon me

I didn’t expect what would happen

Somehow my heart is now full of glee

Maybe I was receptive?

Maybe I was under a spell?

But unlike anyone before

It was only you that I fell

You the Sagittarius

Shot me with Cupid’s arrow

The Archer and the Crab

What-do-ya-know?

I don’t think I’m crazy

What’s a poor boy to do?

I found love

I found it with you

I care deeply

Listen to what the heart will say

Having you in my life

I know now God has listened to me pray

I want only to make you happy

I’ll work hard to show you everyday

The passion we bring to each other

The passion that won’t fade away

I Have Never been More Certain



I write to tell of my feelings

I write to try and understand

Sometimes we need to hear ourselves

Not listening to what’s in the hinterland

I wasn’t sure if I was going to make it

The world changed in the dark gloom

I was alone but I still fought for a life

I kept my faith, I didn’t presume

Taken by surprise

You brought my life vitality

Something I did not expect

But I was attracted to your personality

I was receptive

I wanted to strive

Because of you

I wanted to thrive

I seem to think that your story

Just might be similar to mine

You didn’t know what to think of me

But somehow we connected

Over these months that we have spend time

The many wonders of the universe

We have much to figure out

I have never been more certain

With the girl from Los Reyes Michoacan De Ocampo I am devout

I Wanna Visit Sacramento


I wanna visit Sacramento

Your family is not far from mine

My mom lives off of the river on Cadillac

Your dad lives near the road Calvine

I’d like to meet him if we ever pass through

I’d like to tell him how I feel and this is what I’d say

Your daughter is kind, smart and beautiful

And I am falling for her in these ways

I promise I will always treasure her heart

I am committed to serving her till the end of my days

I wanted to tell you this face to face

I wanted to tell you this man to man

I am interested in your daughter sir

And I would like your blessing for her hand

I am a Richer Man

With you in my life

I love my girl from Mexico

And This is what I Perceive


The sun warms my body

It’s radiance replenishes me

You like the sun warms my heart

Like no other before

I trust in we

I am honest with my feelings

I’ll tell you what I think you should know

Me the poetic gringo

And you the girl from Mexico

It matters not from what country we come from

It matters not what other people believe

We are all children of God

And this is what I perceive
