Live And Let Die

by

Todd Berry

A life I knew is dead
and a love I knew is gone.
The pain I feel in my nightmares
will still be felt at dawn.
My body shuts down
and my blood runs cold.
My arms hug a pillow
because I need something to hold.
I have nothing now
as sadness and sorrow meets.
Just tears on my blanket
to soak into the sheets.

As time pressed on
I finally came through.
Because I soon found another
to make me feel the way I do.
She was my new life
and I was alive one more time.
Until I found out
she would never be mine.
I gave her my all
but she wanted more.
I cry a new tear
to a face I'll forever adore.
I gave her my heart
and all the time I had to spend.
Only to realize
I would die once again.


Winter's Angel

by

Todd Berry

As the sunset fades
and the snowflakes fall.
I lay in the cold
waiting for angels to call.
Words for a lonely soul
to get though another night.
A prayer for a bleeding heart
and for love to catch my sight.
Angels from heaven
send a sweet angel to me.
For the ear that cannot hear
and the eye that refuses to see.
If received what is desired
to you everything I bestow.
I'll give her your kiss
to make our love grow.
I still lie on this cushioned street
watching the white rain.
Still praying for another
to ease yesterday's pain.
A blanket of snow now covers my face
as it melts in with my cries.
I'll pray for her again tomorrow
as I now close my eyes.


The End

by

Todd Berry

I'm listening to the sounds of silence
and wish upon all the stars I can see.
I pray for at least one to come true
the wish of having you here by me.
I remember our first kiss
and some times that meant so much.
I remember every time I was down
how you would console me with your touch.
Now I feel pain and anger
because you left me all alone there.
I was never given a chance and that hurts
because you know how much I care.
In my dreams I look in your eyes
for the last time with a cry.
And for the last time I tell you I love you
and say my last goodby.


Strange Days

by

Todd Berry

As I see you through my white eyes
forever night will take over the strange days.
You will join me for eternity
as I persuade you with my charismatic ways.
My dear, it was you that drank from my blood
and gave me life when I was dead.
But do you also know
that now I see a dark world that is red.
I have new teeth that are to pierce your skin
and melt thy heart.
And the light of day
will tear my cold flesh apart.
It would be lovely to live forever, with you,
the one of my desire.
But I now become what you are
a heart fell vampire.


Darkness: The Love Never Dies Chronicles

by

Todd Berry

I have seen the darkness
of a love thats no more.
My heart is now hurting
and my soul is now sore.
I thought you once cared
I thought I once knew you.
But now I know I was wrong
as my sleepless nights continue.
If only I could touch your face
or kiss your lips
or even smell your sweet scent
thats fading with no trace.
I no you don't feel my pain
or hear my cries.
But darling know this
that love never dies.


The Next Day: The Love Never Dies Chronicles

by

Todd Berry

Look into to the eyes of tomorrow
so I can dry the tears of the past.
A new day is now upon us
and yesterday's memories are fading fast.
I soon will find you
and my dreams will come for real.
I promise I will never hurt you
because I know that hearts can feel.
The next day I will see love,
a love that will soon rise.
And it will be there forever
for love never dies.


Different Kind Of Love: The Love Never Dies Chronicles

by

Todd Berry

I'm trying to see through your eyes
to understand you pain.
I know I cause you troubles
but there is no one to blame.
For me to understand you
you must also understand me.
If we put our hearts together,
together we will find the key.
Please forgive me
for I know not what I do.
I'm just a child who enjoys life
and you should enjoy it too.
I'm sorry for worries
and all the cries.
But remember Mother and Father I love you
and love never dies.


Dreams: The Love Never Dies Chronicles

by

Todd Berry

Do you believe in dreams
and love at first sight?
For love without a dream
is like a warrior with no fight.
The keeper of this illusion
has a power that is divine.
But the one who uses them foolishly
in tear they will dine.
If you believe
the dream inside of you will soon arise.
And the reality that comes with it knows
that love never dies.


Words To The Seeker: The Love Never Dies Chronicles

by

Todd Berry

Hold on to a person's heart
and please don't ever let go.
For when its on its the greatest feel
but when its gone you will really know.
With every memory will come a tear
and every dream will begin to haunt you.
Every vision will bring a smile
and every scent you will think it is her that it belongs to.
If your a seeker of love, listen
for my words are not lies.
This pain will forever remain
because love never dies.


Don't Fear The Reaper

by

Todd Berry

Are you ready to fly
and feel like you've never felt?
Beside a dark shallow grave
is where the tearful ones have knelt.
Ghosts from beyond
here to haunt your every night.
Step through to the other side
and move closer to the light.
What is it you want from me?
I'm not the one.
My soul is eternity clean
and doesn't belong to the devil's son.
Now I'm here to save you
so awaken from your sleep.
We're not ready to part
so don't fall under too deep.
Only love can live forever
and steal the key from the gatekeeper.
I'll be there when the journey is over
so be sure never to fear the reaper.


To My Lost

by

Todd Berry

I believed in love at first sight
the moment that I saw you.
My eyes couldn't stay away
but nothing did I do.
I reach out from the inside
to see what I can find.
All I have of you are dreams
and visions in the back of my mind.
Will I ever meet you again,
this face that I just met?
Its all in your hands
for the future to be set.
You won't escape my mind
so I pray for just one call.
O God if you hear me
nothing would be too small.
I should have done more
but never did I know.
That the day I found is the day I lost my Juliet.
Now a tear comes from this lonely Romeo.


A Cry For Help

by

Todd Berry

I had some time to think about my life today
and I don't know where I am.
I'm falling in love with someone I shouldn't be
and if I was asked to go I don't think I can.
I want to be the one who brings her from her pain
and show her life into mine.
Because what I have to offer her
is a lot more than divine.
I know its not me she thinks of
or sees in her dreams.
No matter how hard I try
It will never be as it seems.
What do I do now?
Where do I go from here?
Should I go or keep trying.
Either way I live in fear.
I am crying for help
does anyone hear my prayer.
Because I don't want to lose her
but I can't make her love me if she doesn't care.


Falling Down

by

Todd Berry

Step down and feel it all around
I'm gonna have to know the truth.
This time I have to draw the line
because the road we're on's not smooth.
Now I can see what happened to me when I followed you.
I'm falling down.

Tell me why the cry is in your eye
is it all the things we do.
Who's there does anybody care
there's an angel over you.
What I believe is not what happeneds when I'm around you.
We're falling down.

And all ones believed in us are crying.
And all the dreams we had before are dying.


Sleepless Nights

by

Todd Berry

Tonight was the slowest night of my life.
I sat and wondered about the next day.
Will she be there tomorrow
or would we go ore separate way.
I fear of this outcome
because I'm not sure what the future brings.
You have what is left of my heart
and what you can do is so many things.
I must forget all that now
because this is where it will all begin.
Search inside your soul
because true romance lies within.
Look inside yourself
a piece of me may be there.
The day you go and find me
is the day you'll truly care.
What I want is a loved one
to hold me forever dear.
But what I expect is a broken heart
and a long good night tear.


Never Again

by

Todd Berry

I feel the rush run through my blood
as the tears fall from my eyes once more.
You have done it again
but this time you have struck the core.
I thought this was it.
I thought this was the time.
You acted like you loved me
but your just not ready to be mine.
Now it all ends here
for I will never take you back.
No matter how much I love you
I can't help it if its a heart you lack.
I have feelings like everyone else
and I'm not a toy to be played with when want to.
I now have feelings filled with anger
and my feelings no longer belong to you.


Living In The Past

by

Todd Berry

(Forever Young)

Remember this moment
for it will never happen again.
The future is upon us
where our new lives will begin.
Each memory will bring us sadness
because the past is what was ours.
The times of young were perfect
but the thoughts of young now sours.
To live in the past
is what we should never do.
Our future is upon us
and our children will make us new.
But through the years
there is one thing.
A memory
for forever young to bring.


Sleep's Dream

by

Todd Berry

I have slept on the beaches
in the night's dark and the day's heat.
Caught in a daydream
where the ocean touched my feet.
To arise from my mind
and live for the day,
I used to stay awake
to drive the dreams I had away.
And I want to believe
and kiss the heart of love.
My head now feels heavy
from the visions I receive from above.
Under a blood red sky
I will not go quietly into the night.
I'll be up with the sun
and woken by it's light.
Is it any wonder I can't sleep?
Is it any wonder it's Jesus I see?
Please say hello to your Father in Heaven
and put a good word in for me.
Everything els is gone
so I give no emotional goodnight to you.
Just remember that I hanging on
and you're all that's left to hold on to.


Forever - The Love Never Dies Chronicles

by

Todd Berry

It's in this moment
that an angel holds my hand.
Awake in a dream
and lying with in the sand.
If this is a dream
then allow me to sleep.
The heart I gave will die
if this angel I cannot keep.
I wish upon you little star
and pray that this angel is real.
So I squeeze her hand twice
to tell her how I feel.
She has me untill she lets me go
so all of this I pray.
If it is forever she desires
then forever will I stay.
Is this what you want
or will you one day return my cryes?
Just think before you answer
and remember love never dies.


A bird with a yellow bill

by

Todd Berry

I saw a bird with a yellow bill pouched upon my window cill.
I drew him to me with crumbs of bread.
And twisted off his frigin' head!

Flanders sucks!
