Her Balcony

Bluejean Songster

In the mornings on her balcony

She enjoys her precious privacy

Early risen, up at dawn

One good stretch, one good yawn

A cup of coffee in solitude

In an early morning mood

Most of the world is not awake

This quiet time she likes to take

In the mornings on her balcony

A cactus blooms so beautifully

Night blooming cactus, early dawn

As she awakens with another yawn

She wants to stay here, freeze this frame

She wants tomorrow to be the same

Pure and fresh as morning dew

Soft sweet air, a lovely view

In the mornings on her balcony

Birds are singing happily

She is free with no disguise

But alas, the sun will rise

The solitude will fade away

As others too, begin their day

But still she has the memory

Of mornings on her balcony

Moments

“And it’s here, in this place,
that I feel at one with you.”

The city’s horizon glows yellow in the distant night that surrounds us. We explore the streets, hand in hand, and listen to the sounds of silence, the music filtering through buildings. And it is here, in this place, that I feel at one with the universe. Like it’s my church, and you’re the only other person sharing those perfect moments with me.

I never want to
let this feeling go.

Why I Sing The Blues

Bluejean Songster

For all the times my mama cried

For all the times my husband lied

For all the times I died inside

That’s why I sing The Blues

That’s why I sing The Blues

For all the times all hope was lost

For all the tears betrayal cost

For all the ways my heart was tossed

That’s why I sing The Blues

That’s why I sing The Blues

For when I tried and tried again

For all we knew from way back then

For all that was and could have been

That’s why I sing The Blues

That’s why I sing The Blues

For all that deep and dark despair

For all the times he didn’t care

Forgotten love who didn’t dare

That’s why I sing The Blues

That’s why I sing The Blues
