Out to Sea©

My friend she travels here and there

Although she’s smiling, her pain is clear as can be

As she seems full of sadness

 She sounds as though she misses home

And all of whom she loves

 Traveling sure takes its toll

When you are out to sea

A never-ending yearning for what use to be

She sits there with her husband, lover, and friend

Although he’s everything she ever hoped for

She still seems to be missing her friends and family

 There seems to be no substitute

For the love of family and friends

 No ocean big or small

No sunset or moonrise

Nor the stars at night

 Why not come home my dear friend

For we miss you just as you miss us

The world is full of endless possibilities.

Don’t limit your hopes and dreams.

Don’t let your disappointment in others hinder what you set out to do.

Set the bar higher than ever before.

You’ll enjoy each day even more.

The experience is as rewarding as achieving the goal.

We are not always aware of what we have

We are not always willing to see the offers before us

We may hold our eyes closed to our reality

In the end we always know what’s coming

We always know that steps that need to be taken

To make all that needs to happen, happen

Sometimes we must call on the unexpected for help

But we swallow our pride

and what needs to be done

Gets done

and we have achieved success

Attempting fate at every turn
Nothing is going to stop me
I have to be on my way
On the way to better things
A better life for me
A better life for you
Please don’t try to stop me
I’ve been here to long
So long I’ve wondered will I live to see the next morn
Then it happened
A little birdie told me to just get up and run
Run to happiness
Don’t be left behind
All that you will see is life in disguise
Disguised as happiness that’s really madness
Madness of those in anger
Who’ll stand in your way
Step back and look away
Clear your path and run
Run until you can’t run any more
When you stop you’ll be there
There in a place
A place meant for happiness
Where you can be everything and anything that you’ve wanted to be
This life was meant for you
So take it and be on your way
Because I know you just can’t stay
Stay in a place where no one sees you
No one knows you
But I know that one day
And one day soon
You’ll show them
Just who you were meant to be
And then you will no longer be
Flying by the seat of your pants

The Path©

by Felina Silver Robinson


I’m not frightened by your ideal

While I’m deeply entrenched in my own

I have miles to go to before I reach my target

Being certain to keep all obstacles clear from my path

Ensuring no distractions til I reach my destination

Whereupon my team awaits instruction on next phase of our immense invention

Which is something we have all come to know as a peaceful, fun-loving, society hand-made by man

The dream for eternal happiness can only be realized by those willing to track it down

If You Could See Inside My Soul©

by Felina Silver Robinson


If you sat across from me and you stared for a while

You may start to wonder what might be inside

I promise you that it’s all good

I know that I’m a good soul

My heart wants only what’s good for others

I give every part of who I am to another

I only want happiness for all those around me

I wish away war, homelessness, illness and starvation

I fear for nothing but your safety

Knowing that I will do my best to bring you happiness

So please when you look at me

No second guesses

No wondering who I am

I am the one who is all that you need

I am your one and only saviour

I’m a good soul

I am your saviour

Changes in the Wind My Friend©

No longer will you get away with

All that you’ve done

Everyone is watching you

You have no say in where you might be going

The hand you passed the ball with

The hand that held me tight

Close in the dead of night

It’s the same hand that sent me crying

For fear of dying

When you threatened to keep on trying

Until someday when I wasn’t looking

You would come undone

And finish what you started

Well my friend

I just thought you just might want to know

That change is in the wind

Now the shoe will be on the other foot

You’ll be under the scope for all to see

So all that you’ve done will no longer be a secret

Everyone will know what you’ve done and l

Will be sitting in wait to pass judgement on you

Change is in the wind my friend

I’d like to see you quiver,

I’d even like to see you cry

Just so I know you are human

And have real feelings

Just like the rest of us

May you now learn how to treat me better

May you come to know true love

May you learn to give without having to take

May you learn how to both ask as well as give forgiveness

May you see the changes in the wind

And open your arms and embrace it

We start off young wanting and needing things
We expect them because we often know that if we ask, we get
Some of us are told not to expect it, that we have to earn it, if we want it go for it, and get it

We tell our children, our employees, our doctors, our politicians, what we expect
They in-turn tell us what they expect from us

We give love, we expect love back
We give our time, we expect something, anything back
We give our money, and by golly someone or something better not disappoint us

We expect to be happy, not always knowing that we control our own happiness.

Just because you expect it, doesn’t mean you’re going to get it, or that you even deserve it
Work hard and you may be surprised how things work out



The Best Laid Plans©

By Felina Silver Robinson

You start your day thinking things are going to happen one way

But you forget that you don’t control Mother Nature

Mother Nature has her own plans

Her temperament is all her own

Her desires often change

She can be moody and indecisive

Change weather at a moments notice

So know this going in, that the best laid plans are meant to be broken

Always have an alternate plan when you are dealing with mother nature

She’s wet

She’s dry

She’s warm

She’s cold

She’s hot

She’s stormy

She’s electrifying

She likes to light up the sky

She’s cloudy

She’s clear

But her mind is never made up

and just when you think you have her all figured out

She again disrupts your best laid plans

There is a difference in your eyes today

I can see into your heart

I’ve never known your feelings

Now I know your deepest fears

I know your hopes and dreams

You tell me your sorrows

I tell you mine

We find a way together to make them go away

We face the world together because there is no other way

There is a difference in your eyes today

You finally see a tomorrow

I’m grateful for the difference

Now you no longer have to turn away
