"Sunset"

At the end of the day,

The sun sinks into the sky.

The colors were children,

Alive and bright-eyed.

The lake is the glass,

Reflecting their play.

How gorgeous this close,

This end of the day.

The clouds were the pillows,

For each child to rest.

Ready to sleep,

Now so colorfully dressed.

"Fireworks"

I look at the world

And see all the lights.

I think of that day,

But more of that night.

The night the fireworks came to be.

It was such a wonderful sight to see.

Where did they come from,

Where did they go,

Where they going there fast,

Or where they going slow.

I look at the world

And see all the lights

The fireworks had stopped

And all was quiet that clear, clear night

"Whatif"

Last night, while I lay thinking here

Some Whatifs crawled inside my ear

And pranced and partied all night long

And sang their same old Whatif song:

Whatif I go to jail?

Whatif I get eaten by a whale?

Whatif I eat too much pie?

Whatif I turn into a crazy guy?

Whatif I could live in New York?

Whatif I was a dork?

Everything seems swell and then

The nighttime Whatifs strike again.

"Ping Pong"

I serve the ball with power; he hits it back to me

Ping pong hong dong that's the sound it makes

I hope you know what you're doing, don't make a mistake

One thing to remember, don't hit your knee; that would be silly

Whoever gets to twenty-one wins the game

Please don't be silly, this is a serious match

What are you doing, don't you know you can't catch

Whoever wins the tournament gets in the hall of fame

"Love"

Love on Valentine's Day.

Love is the color of red, pink, and white.

Love smells like the secret scent of pine

Love sounds like kites blowing the cool, crisp air.

Love taste like candy that has the world's sweetest sugar in it.

Love looks like smoothly cut paper hearts.

Love feels like stepping on warm, soft sand.

Love is all these things and more.

Tell the person you love that today. Don't let it slip away.
