Strength and Beauty

(for J.H. at Water Tower Park
Wednesday, March 13, 2002)

On the stairs of the Water Tower
A symbol of strength and beauty
We sat and talked for just a minute or two
Nervous – I sipped my dying cup of coffee
Around us the beautiful people mingled and moved
She is of that world ā€“ the beautiful people world
Even in my own city ā€“ I have been a stranger to that world
Until today ā€“ until the cool early spring moment
When we she sat down next to me on those cold stairs
And she remembered my words and what they meant
Iā€™m grateful that she shared her strength and beauty with me
There on the stairs of the Water Tower
A symbol of strength and beauty

You Want Strength

You want strength
I’ll give you strength
I’ll wrestle my demons
And I’ll nurture my angels

You want strength
I’ll give you strength
I’ll wage this war alone
And I’ll conquer what faces me

You want strength
I’ll give you strength
I’ll fight for myself
And I won’t stand in your way
Anymore
