EACH DAY

EACH DAY IS FULL OF LOVE
EACH DAY IS FULL OF BEING
EACH DAY IS FULL OF BEING HERE
EACH DAY IS FULL OF BEING THERE
EACH DAY IS FULL OF BEING GONE!

ALONE

SLOWLY, THE SONG DID APPEAR,

OUT OF THE FOG,

OUT OF MY MIND, ALONE,

ONE NOTE, AT A TIME,

MOMENT AFTER MOMENT,

DAY AFTER DAY, ALONE,

SLOWLY, I STARTED TO HUM ALONG,

TO THE TUNE, THEN, I WROTE,

I WROTE A LINE AFTER LINE,

ALONE EACH NIGHT, ALONE, SO,

ALONE, EACH DAY, I SANG THAT SONG,

WITHOUT INSTRUMENT OR BAND, ALONE,

THEN, THAT SONG WAS BORN,

THAT SONG THAT MAKES ME DANCE,

THAT MAKES ME CRY,

THAT MAKES ME HAPPY,

SLOWLY, THE SONG DID APPEAR, CAME ALIVE,

BUT, I SANG THAT SONG, SLOWLY, BUT,

IT IS NOT MINE! IT IS YOUR SONG, ALONE!

WALK OVER

WALK OVER ALL THESE WET LAKES, STEP OVER THE MANY WAVES, FISH, AND ROCKS, BOATS MOVE TO THE SIDE OF THE WATER, UNDERNEATH, DOWN RIVERS, AND CREEKS, UPON LAKES AND PONDS STROLLING BEYOND THE WATERS, PEOPLE WONDER HOW CAN ONE WALK ON THE WETNESS? IT IS BECAUSE THE WIND, SUN AND LIFE, JOIN ONE AS ONE WALKS UPON THE WETNESS, AS IT HOLDS ONE UP, THE AIR, PROPELS ONE ALONG, THE SUN NAVIAGATES FOR ONE WAY, LIFE SURROUNDS THE LIVING WATERS, THAT BECOME THE RAINY DEW AND WATER WITHIN, IF ONE CAN BELIEVE, ONE WILL NOT SINK OR NEED TO SWIM TO WALK OVER THE WATERS!

THE DANCE

THE DRUM VIBRATES AWAKE,
THE SUN COVERS ALL OF THE WORLD,
THE WORLD HERE, THE POW-WOW WORLD,
IS HERE, TO BE HERE,
THE MASTER OF CEREMONIES HE JOKES & EXPLAINS,
IS A FRIEND,
THE LEAD SINGER BEGINS WITH HIS VOICE
THE PAST RETURNS
THE SECOND FOLLOWS UP
THE DANCERS ROTATE AROUND THE CIRCLE,
IN EACH STEP, IN EVERY MOVE,
THE HEARTBEAT LIVES IN THE SOULS,
IS, SO, REAL, IN BEING REAL,
THE COLORFUL SYMPHONY OF THE DANCE UNFLOLDS,
IN EACH DANCER, IN EVERY MOVE, IN ALL,
THE EYES WATCHING IN THE BLEACHERS,
THE VOICES AROUND THE DRUM,
THE DANCERS DANCING ALIVE,
THE THREADS OF IT ALL TOGETHER,
THE SAME, THE HUNT, THE SONGS, THE WARS, THE SORROW, THE WAY,
THE EVERYDAY, THE LIFE,
THE DANCE CONTINUES ON AND ON… STRONG BUFFALO

CHILD, DEAR CHILD OF MINE

CHILD, DEAR CHILD OF MINE,
I DON’T OWN YOU, I OWE YOU,
I LOVE YOU…SURE,
I HAD A PART IN MAKING YOU,
MAYBE, EVEN A HAND IN RAISING YOU,
BUT, I’M A ORPHAN MAN, SO, I KNOW THAT,
CHILDREN ALWAYS BE NEEDING LOVE,
CHILDREN MEAN, SO MUCH, TO SO MANY,
CHILDREN, SO, VERY IMPORTANT, AND
DEAR, TO SO MANY, NEAR AND FAR…
CHILD, DEAR CHILD OF MINE,
I DON’T OWN YOU, I OWE YOU,
I LOVE YOU, HOPE YOU DON’T THINK,
POORLY OF ME, I’M JUST A OLD CHILD,
WHO NEVER HAD NO FAMILY OF HIS OWN,
NEVER HAD NO MOMMY TO LOVE ON ME,
OR, DADDY TO HUSH ME UP, CHILDREN, SO,
VERY IMPORTANT AND DEAR TO SO MANY,
NEAR AND FAR…
CHILD, DEAR CHILD OF MINE
I DON’T OWN YOU, I OWE YOU, I LOVE YOU,
I WAS OFF DOING THE WORK FOR THE GOOD
OF OUR PEOPLES’ RIGHTS!
CHILD, DEAR CHILD OF MINE, I DON’T OWN YOU,
I OWE YOU, I LOVE YOU! STRONG BUFFALO-DAKOTA

A Message from the Dark

A very dark shadow follows

nearby,

A quiet someone speaks

out of space

close by,

A quick something moves

through the

air,

never alone

even,

if untouchable!

if unseen!

A star shines for me

far away,

the darkness

utters softly

to me,

“I Love You,

I Love You!”

BUFFALO EYES

THE STARS, GO DARK WITHIN IN THE BUFFALO’S EYES,

THERE’S MANY OF US, YES, BUT, DON’T BELIEVE,

WE’VE BEEN INTRODUCED,

I AM BUFFALO,

THE ONE WITH THE STARS IN MY EYES,

THE ONE WHO CRIES FOR THE PEOPLE TO LIVE,

WHO RUNS HIGH IN THE SKIES!

SEE, LOOK AND YOU WILL SEE

THOSE STARS SHINING BRIGHT

DEEP WITHIN MY BUFFALO EYES,

THE ONE WHO CRIES FOR THE PEOPLE TO LIVE,

WHO RUNS HIGH IN THE SKIES!
