if i wrote a million words
they would all be the same
they would all speak to you
they would echo your name

if i said what was in my heart,
in my mind, and in my soul;
i would only say i love you
and your happiness my goal

if i lived one hundred years
and was deemed earthly poor
your love would make me rich
and i'd hunger never more

if i had but one grand wish
to pin upon a shooting star
i wouldn't change a thing
for i love you as you are

We may not know we're broken,
until we've been repaired.
We may not know we're brave,
until we admit we're scared.

We may not know we're lonely,
until love has set us right.
We may not know we're saved,
until darkness turns to light.

such is james robert

it follows no rules
it knows no bounds
its power unique
so often astounds

it comes unannounced
asserting its will
but if so chosen
you'll know then its thrill

its domain ubiquitous
voiced in poem and song
it spares not the weak
nor the strong

at times it appears
like a thief in the night
to capture your heart
turn darkness to light

no more sunsets? james robert

i looked westward
at the sun's final curtain
but the colors had vanished
of that i am certain

gone were the golds
and the purples and blues
they had all disappeared
like yesterday's news

unable to accept it
unwilling to try it
i screamed at the gods
i'm not going to buy it

give me the light show
at the end of my days
the magnificent sky
and painted sun's rays

the god's responded
they would restore my hues
but they would have to cancel
the six o'clock news

so my world will now
be a much better place
sans the daily bad news
yet with the god's daily grace
