OK, this was not easy for me, so I picked two. The first one was beacuse of something my Mom said to me. (the first two lines) She was right. I wrote it on 3-19-88
The second one came to me so fast it was as if someone else was telling me what to write. I felt like I couldn't get it down fast enough. It makes me feel happy. I wrote it on 4-11-00. Hope you like...

Don't rush your destiny
or it may pass you by
give fate a chance
soon enough you'll know why

Why it took so long
why the other's weren't right
why we were meant to fall in love
on this special night.


---------------------------------------------------

You wouldn't believe
the Mom I've got
skipping by I ask
what's cookin'in the pot?

Smiling she says
why, it's Bumble Bee Stew
I'm making it special
my girl, just for you

Are you crazy Mom?!
Or just going mad?
Bumble Bee Stew
I surely have never had

My silly girl
it's a witches brew
every young witch
loves Bumble Bee Stew

Well how do you make it?
Can you tell me that?
And if I'm a young witch
dear Mom, where ever is my hat?

A young witch
does not wear a hat
my child did you forget
your sweet black cat?

I have a black cat
yes, this is true
but Mom, how do you make
Bumble Bee Stew?

It's a secret-
one day I'll share with you
and together we'll make
Bumble Bee Stew.

 I think I could need - this in my life
I think I'm just scared - that I know too much
I can't relate and that's a problem
I'm feeling ...
If you're gone - maybe it's time to go home
There's an awful lot of breathing room
But I can hardly move
If you're gone - baby you need to come home
cuz there's a little bit of something me...
In everything in you.

You may have written it some time ago but words such as these are ageless. I like the second one too, it just seems to bounce along, it's fun.  



 God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me. ~Unknown
