Raindrops in the Snow

The world can be a harsh place
With cold and thorny walls
At times it seems there is no trace
Of humanity at all

But then one day a stranger calls
To brighten up your day
Then all of your defenses fall
All sadness washed away

Ephemeral as spider webs
A sweet song no one knows
Until it sings inside your head
Your chasing raindrops in the snow

My friend, thank you for your kindness.

I Am No Man

I am no man
There is no hatred in my heart
No more blood spilled by my hand
In wars of men I’ll have no part

I am no man
Judgment’s curse I shall forsake
Now finally I understand
To offer more than what I take

I am no man
Wisdom has yet eluded me
My days like falling hourglass sands
A thousand tears that fill the sea

I am no man
The parts you see may well confound
Some token of the master plan
Soon dust returned to sacred ground

I am no man.
