I love you like a cigarette

Standard

I love you like a cigarette,

I put you out at night,

when I wake up in the morning,

I set your world alight.

I sometimes forget you

through my working days.

But when I see a cigarette,

I remember to speak your praise.

You know how much I love you,

I want it to remain a secret.

Cigarettes are a health risk

I think I’ll manage to keep it.

When I reach the end,

And the filter’s left behind,

You’ll always be with me,

The cigarette of my mind.

The Nun’s Song

Standard

She was sitting

 near the river,

watching floating logs

 pass by her.

When up quietly

 came a stranger,

and said he was

 her lover.

He did not receive

 an answer,

for she knew

 he was a traitor,

towards his

 other lover.

Written in her

 character

it says she is

 a loner,

and will never have

 such a lover,

though she cannot be

 much happier,

for Jesus is

 protecting her.
