Watching the stars in the night sky We're laying here, just you and I Holding, trembling, not from cold From a feeling deep but not yet old A new spark to begin our time I ask for your hand, and you don't mind We laugh, we talk, we huddle close In the grass that leans above us both Time...

The Story of My Hometown: Oakdale, Nebraska   There's a story to tell, a story to know The story of my hometown, many years ago It may look like a ghetto to you Full of broken dreams that don't come true But there is history in this ground You'll catch a glimpse if you s...

I'm wishing right now I wasn't alone I'd do anything to make you come home But when there's nothing left to do That's when I want to be with you But something stops me every time I catch up, yet I fall behind I want so bad to be yours B...

No meteorologist can predict its mood Sunshine and smiles one day And the cold shoulder rain showers the next Nebraska weather is a bipolar person Bouncing from mood to mood, hot to cold Sometimes its angry face throws hail at our heads Then minutes later its cheery rainbow appears The...

I can paint you an abstract picture Full of life and color With shapes and designs That will blow your mind But when it comes to drawing something real That I cannot do.

I am flat, cold and unmoving Moved only by glistening raindrops Plopping down from the sky Like salty tears from an eyelash Shimmering as it hurries down your cheek Weakly landing on the back of your hand And I am quite the same Daylight dries up my heart and yet Too often I am...
