Peter Pan Envy

Peter Pan Envy
By Michael A Gelb

I envy Peter Pan
He never get’s old as a man

He can fly back and forth to never-never land
To his lost boys a merry band

If I had Tinkerbelle’s fairy dust and could fly
I would go up and up into the sky

I would fly up to my wife who’s in heaven
And take her back to nineteen fifty-seven

The fifties were a great time in life
It was when I met my future wife

What Some Men Can't See

What Some Men Can’t See
By Michael A Gelb

For years it’s been said that love is blind
Probably meant with men in mind

Women are different in many ways
With some men their in a daze

All women have inner beauty of their own
And most of the time that beauty is shown

Women are filled with loving care
Especially for children they love so dear

Some men can’t see beyond their nose
The love in the family that grows and grows

Gift of Light

Gift of Light
By Michael A Gelb

All the years with my wife
She was a light in my life

Driving home and around a bend
She was my light at journeys end

Some things I did start
Giving her something from my heart

During the day and into the night
I burn a candle to her, it’s a gift of light

That Girl

That Girl
By Michael A Gelb

That girl I loved from the start
She took over my heart

That girl was my lover
She was also my kids mother

That girl was my best friend
Right to the very end

That girl I love and adore
She is not here anymore

That girl was my wife
And will be for the rest of my life

Don't Cry For Me

Don’t Cry For Me
By Michael A Gelb

When the day comes and I die
Don’t be sad, don’t cry

I would say I had a good life
With children, grandchildren and a beautiful wife

At the end of this life
I’ll be back with my wife

All you kids I will miss
From you I’ll give mom a big kiss

Don’t cry, don’t grieve
I’ll be with your mother after I leave

Wedding Bands

Wedding Bands
By Michael A Gelb

I placed a ring on her left hand
A plain white gold wedding band

With all my love this ring is from me
I also wore a ring for people to see

Today the rings have become something more
They also tie us together for evermore

Mine is still on my left hand
From my neck hangs her wedding band

I feel her in my heart and in my life
I still think of her as my wife

Promises, Promises

Promises, Promises
By Michael A Gelb

A promise with saying I do
Back in the year nineteen sixty two
A promise of love to my wife
She is my love for all my life
A promise to love her forever
Will I love again, I think never
