SOMETIMES LOVE FAILS

Sometimes love fails
and petals fall
dead and dry.
Roots still planted
new love grows,
and maybe this time
the sun won’t scorch.

AND I’LL SHUT OFF THE LIGHT

And I’ll shut off the light
Turn the music off
Say goodnight
To all my sorrows
For there is no reason
Tomorrow a new
Maybe some good
Will come about
For dreams and wishes
Nothing but selfish desires
So tomorrow when I wake
I shall try not to want
