the seductiveness of jazz

the seductiveness of jazz
a seductiveness I so easily
succumb to
most willingly I surrender
to every chance
it gives me to free my mind
the unpredictability of jazz
it mirrors how
I want to live my life
seductively calm
yet so alive
you're never quite sure
which way it's going to go
and when it strikes a chord
deep inside of you
you'll know
you've been romanced
by the seductiveness of jazz

my little heartbreaker

take one look at her
that cute little daughter of mine
and it's plain to see
she's going to be
a big time heartbreaker
you may not want to get
too close too fast
you may not want to just
dive right in
you may want to test the waters
you may want to play the field
you may find treading lightly
around daddy's little girl
could be the way to go
you may have to just
get in line with the rest
for she ain't gonna settle
for anything less than the best
that life has to offer
and this little girl's daddy
wouldn't want anything less
for his little girl
than everything
her carefree heart desires

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad

happy anniversary
mom and dad
a day to remember
all the good years you've had
48 in all
but who's counting
just need to add 4
to my years on the planet
staying together so long
so rare in these days
of perilous temptation
we give in too easily
or should I say give up
when the going gets tough
so easy to just call it quits
say to hell with it
then go and do it all over again
just to make the same mistakes
the ones we should've learnt from
first time round
sometimes that first
it's the first and last
it's the always
it's the 'til death do us part
it's the when I give my heart
it'll be forever
it'll be through thick and thin
here's to staying together
loving forever mom and dad
happy anniversary
this the day of your wedding
48 years ago
still honouring the commitment
you made to each other
to live as husband and wife
to share together
the joys and the sorrows
of this beautiful life
