Traumerie - Dreaming With You
(Music by Schumann)

If I could pirouette like leaves

let the lightness of this fragile heart drift down to you,

So calm, no windswept act or storm would have such force enough
to whisk 'way leaves that will not ever roam.

And bring us tranquil moments pure,
never leave us with some promise of return anew.

Then touch, and gently rest within
your open hand so warm
your lifeline leaves no doubt I'm safely home.

>>>>>>>>>>> Musical Interlude <<<<<<<<<<<<<<

So I did pirouette like leaves
and glissanded on the landscape of your waiting palm.

Then touch and gently rest within
your open hand so warm
you've brought me lifelong moments, ever calm.

Music Box Dancer
(Music Box Dancer by Frank Mills)

You walk in the room and you're wearing a frown,
You reach for the shelf and cradle it down
The Music Box Dancer, what does it prove?
Only that you need to see a statue that moves.
A tutu of satin, bordered with lace,
Slender lines, agile legs, a wonderland face.
Her beauty is balanced, an immovable pose,
Eternally destined to remain on her toes.

Music Box Dancer, she is only a toy,
Project upon her your dreams of wanting life's joy;
She's perched on her stand, and never will part,
A final gaze upon her, now the music will start.

You wind the doll up, it's nostalgic because
You've been here before, so give one final pause
To dream of the future, to reflect on the past,
Music Box Dancer start your whirling at last.
The room fills with music, such a cute song,
Watching her go 'round and 'round, she's where she belongs;
Bring joy to the watchers, spreading a glow,
Whenever wound up, she'll put on a good show.

Music Box Dancer, do you think or believe
She could step off her box if she wanted to leave?
So easy it is, twirl around with such grace,
Staying in her circle, she remains in one place.

Such a brief moment, a small time to spend,
The dancing will slow soon, the music will end;
In real life we're plastic, nature's unfair,
How can we breathe life, how can we share
The knowledge and insights hidden in tombs,
We're all Music Box Dancers all alone in our rooms;
We sit on our shelves where objects reside,
We don't allow the music to get right inside.

Music Box Dancer's now completely alone,
No winder or no listener, because nobody's home;
How long before someone will re-wind the spring?
The room will now be witness; and silence can't sing.

Eyes Met Eyes
(From the Enigma Variations by Edward Elgar)

Eyes met eyes exploring,
And seeing shadows clear

To

Where there once was august haze
You are no more amazed
…a thoughtful gaze

and

Eyes met eyes imploring,
And sensing distance near

To

Where horizon’s sands of sky
And you draw nigh
So that you see sighs
Oh so deep inside
Not to be denied
…..Where two souls reside

(interlude)

and

Eyes met eyes adoring
The gift of friendship dear

To

Those who search the waves,
the hidden caves
of love and warmth
for all that’s here and seen beneath,
so far underneath,
all one can bequeath…..

As

Eyes met eyes forever………...more

Ethereal Meditation

(Pelleas & Melisande, Second Movement by Faure)

The soft, pure dust of butterfly wings
is sprinkled like due on your skin;
A friend's caress so soft on your sleeve,
I know you should let it all in.

Just close your eyes and wait for the wind
to whisper a song so you'll hear;
That still small voice that floats on a breeze
and yearns to reside in your ear.

Windows and doors are open to you now,
Quiet and blissful reminders you hold;
Solitude's peaceful embrace of your conscience,
Bringing all souls into one perfect mold.

Crying …. tears of a memory.
Sighing…. lost in dreams.
Saying …. now you're so peaceful.
Praying … it will last.

These silver notes with gold-threaded harps,
try lifting you heavenward bound;
You're warmly housed within my own song,
your body melts into the sound.

Whoever hears and sings me again,
will help all my poems to survive;
On lips, in heart residing in hope,
that others will keep me alive.

Crying …. tears of a memory.
Sighing…. lost in dreams.
Saying …. now you're so peaceful.
Praying … it will last.

And now my life raft waits for my words,
I'll sing them and drift off to sea;
My poem of dreams, I'll share all the words,
now all my world is in thee.

Just You, Just Me

(Composed by Mark Engelberg - Lyric - Norman Pollack - Performed by Mindy Engelberg(Vocal) and Mark Engelberg(Piano)

Many times I said, "Just you".
Many times I tried to decide just why I do
rely on you,
I'll never know why, I just do.

Here I am beside the one that I love,
thinking what you mean to me;
How long should I wait to hear that debut,
when you'll sing to me, "It's just you."

Many times I said, "Just me"
Many times I'd call but it seems that all you'd ask,
"Who might it be"?
I'd always respond with "Just me".

Here I am beside the one that I love,
Thinking 'bout just me and you;
Really not the way I thought it would be,
It may not be you, it's just me.

>>>>> musical interlude <<<<<

Many times I said, "Just you".
Many times I tried to decide just why I do
rely on you,
I'll never know why, I just do.
I'll never know why, I just do.

When will it be
Just you and me?

Is Through You
(Is Through You - music by Frank Mills)

Another way to see it,
Another way to be it,
Another way to see it is through you.
The only way to see one
Only way to be one
The only way to free one is through you.

Through your eyes, your eyes,
Any way he views it,
Any way to do it is through you.
Through your eyes, your eyes,
Only way to view it,
The only way to do it is through you.

Another day will see it,
Another day will be it,
Another day will see it is through you.
The only day to see it,
The only day to be it,
Will be the day he will be free through you.

Through your eyes, your eyes,
Any way he views it,
Any way to do it is through you.
Through your eyes, your eyes,
Only way to view it,
The only way to do it is through you.

I pray that both may see it,
Pray that both will be it,
I pray that both will see it is through you.
On that day both will see it,
That day both will be it
That day he will be healed and whole through you.

Through your eyes, your eyes,
Any way he views it,
Any way to do it is through you.
Through your eyes, your eyes,
Only way to view it,
The only way to do it is through you.

Through your eyes, your eyes,
Any way he views it,
Any way to do it is through you.
Through your eyes, your eyes,
Only way to view it,
The only way to do it is through you.
