Just a Man…

Corey Chapman

Alone on a Cliff

I Knew I was a Lucky One

There are Some Days that the World Revolves around Me

It’s Like it thinks I’m the Sun

It’s Almost Like I’m on the Edge of a Cliff

and All I Wanna do is Take Flight

But I Find Myself All Alone

I Guess Some people just can’t Seem to Handle the Height

They Prefer a Different View to Their Worlds

From a Much Lower Site

So

I’m Gonna Spread my Wings

And be Carried by the Wind

But I Won’t look Down

Or I Might see a Whales Tail or a Shark Fin

I Hope they Have a Bed

Let’s just Keep Going This Way

There is Something up Ahead

I Don’t Care What it is

I Just hope they Have a Bed

Are you Sure, Though? We’ve Been Going Straight for a Long Time

Relax, Dude

We are Fine

Your Phone is Gone, So I’ve been Following Mine

Little Traditions

Sometimes…

When we Are Losing Someone Really Really Important to Us

We Hang on to A Lot of Little Things

Any Little Traditions

That we Possibly Can

Just to Keep the Connection…

Anything…

Including Questioning…

What is out There?

Should I Dare?

Do I Care?

Or..

Am I Just Scared?

Not This Time

This Time I Go

This Time I Am Prepared

Lost in Sleep

Where do You go When you Get Lost in Sleep?

Do You Go to the Mountains?

Do You Look for Buried Treasures in an Old Dragon’s Keep?

Or Do you Go to the Pasture and Count all the Sheep?

Promise me One Thing

No Matter Where you Go, Though

That if you ever find yourself on a Cliff Just Shut your Eyes

Just Leap!!

You’ll Fly

It’s Amazing how Funny things Can Happen when we are Fast Asleep

But be Ever Wary

Sometimes…Sleep don’t come Cheap

All these Years go by and it feels like there is Nothing left to Say

Sometimes… Thoughts get a Little Fuzzy

The Memories come back to Us in Icy Shades of Blacks and Grays

But That’s Ok

These are just the Types of Days that have Outlived their Momentary Stays

We Thrive when We Dream in Color, Anyways

I Dream of the Stars in the Sky

And the Mountains up High

And I Dream of Rivers and Streams

All of these I See in My Dreams

These are My Memories

Forever Filled with Wonder

I Don’t Know about You But I’d Rather have Dreams

With Some Mountains and Some Streams

Then Those of the Icy Tundra

I Used to Think

I Used to Think…

Everyone has that Something they Want to Be

And I Used to Think…

Everyone has All these Places they Need to See

And I Used to Think…

Everyone has Someone That they Get to See All of these Place With

I Used to Think..

Everyone has Someone else, But Me

Everyone Else but Me…

I Don’t think That Anymore

But…

Everything that these people want Me to Be..

I Am More than just the Sum of what They See on the TV

And I have Met Enough People to Know that this World has been Calling to Me

And I’m Happy to Say…

I’m Finally opening my Eyes to All the Possibilities that I’m Starting to See

Just a Man

What if…

I were just a Man?

And…

What if…

You were Just a Girl?

Would I Still feel the Need to Write this for You?

Or…

Would You Not Yet be a Bigger Part of my World?

But…

I am Not just a Man

And…

You are No Ordinary Girl

I Knew it The Moment I Saw You

When the Music Played…

and We began to Whirl… and to Swirl… and to Twirl

But…

I Didn’t Say Anything, Then…

Maybe, to You…

I Am Just a Simple Man

Hard to Love

and Not Making it Easy…

Maybe, Someday…

I Won’t Be Just a Simple Man

Hopefully, Someday…

That’s What You’ll See

What If…

I Were Just a Girl?

And…

What if…

You were Just a Man?

Would I Still Do Anything To Make You Happy?

Anything at All…

That I Can…

For My Best Friend

When I Saw You…

We Danced…

And I That’s When I Knew…

I Couldn’t Figure it Out, Why…

Until That Day…

Why You had Never been a Bigger Part of My Plan

But…

I Didn’t Say Anything, Then

Maybe, To You..

I Am Still Just a Girl…

Not yet a Woman…

Difficult….at times

And not making it Easy

Maybe, Someday…

I Won’t be Just A Girl

Hopefully, Someday…

There will be A “You and Me”

Rhyming Crimes

Oh, My Dear

My Darling Dear

I Will Forever Be by Your Side

I’ll Be with You Through it All

Until the End of Time…

Did You Notice what I Did Right There?

Those, Two Words…

They Don’t even Rhyme

But…

Two Words, Not Rhyming Well

That’s Should Matter

Words not Rhyming Well Together..

Well…

It’s not a Crime

And…

Even though I May be Gone

Know…

That it’s only in the Physical Way

I Try to Make You Notice Everyday

You Will Always be Protected

You Will Always be My Baby

And…

You Will Always be OK

Sanctuary

Extend Your Sanctuary for the People Around You

They Are Gonna Need You

Misunderstood Adulthood

Just Cause You Could

It Doesn’t Mean You Should

And…

Just Cause it Looked Easy for Them

It Doesn’t Make it Any Good

But…

It’s All Still Possible…

And…

in all Likelihood…

Even during your Boyhood or Girlhood

Chances Are…

You…

were Probably just a Little Bit Misunderstood

But Now…

Older and Wiser… In Your Adulthood

You Will Start to Notice it Feeling like the Start of your Second Childhood

So…

Whatever Reasons You Need…

Whatever Bridge Your Decide to Jump from

Or…

Whatever Cliff you Decide to Dive from

Or, even…

Whateveer Trees You Decide to Climb

Just Do Them For You

And You’ll be Just Fine

Start Walking

If You are Better Than That

Be That…

Get Back Up

You Ain’t Gonna Get Anywhere…

if You Don’t Start Walking Somewhere

Terrible Ideas (for Miles and Miles)

Terrible Ideas…

Don’t You Just Love Them?

Life Offers Up, Everyday A Thousand different Terrible Ideas

We Just need to Perfect One of Them Enough to Earn Some Income

And…

If We Work Hard Enough on that One Terrible Idea…

We might Find our Way to Forget All the Struggles we’ve Come From

But…

Always Remember…

The Struggles have helped us to Get Here…

Across the Miles and Miles of Who You Are

And…

No Matter What…

You Will Never Forget the Distance You have Traveled

Nobody Else…

Can Possibly Comprehend Just how Far

A Serendipity Moment

It Was a Moment of Serendipity

On the Day We Met…

When…

we Both Looked at Each Other

And…

We Both Just Instinctively Knew

That…

You were Made for Us

And…

We were Made for You

Your Truth

Choose…

Your Truth

Not…

Their Demands

Travel Company

Traveling….

Is Not All or Nothing

Traveling…

It’s All

Exploring is Everything

And…

even if Parts of the Trips were Not as much Fun…

as We Had Planned they Would Be

I Still Enjoy Your Company

Blaming Shadows

Don’t…

Blame Your Shadow

Just…

Because You’ve Lost site of Your Rainbow

You…

Just haven’t Been Look Hard Enough Yet

But…

You will…

Life Changes

Life Changes

That…

Is What Life Does

But…

No Matter How Old

Or…

No Matter How Young

Just…

Let Your Pages Turn

Let the Music Play

You will be Happy
