The 1967 Breakthrough


Am I dreaming,
Am I alone,
Could this be,
Could we have won,
Love is allowed,
Love is not wrong,
Society accepts us,
Society moves on,
There is still more to do,
There are those who protest,
Society will adapt,
Society has already,
Love has been accepted,
Love has no limits,
Could tomorrow be better,
Could we love free,
I am not alone,
I am not dreaming.

Light of my Life


Years passed where I asked for you,
And who knew,
You were asking for me too.
***
We may not have known each other,
But our hearts knew,
you were asking for me,
And I was asking for you too.
***
My mornings are bright,
Waking next to you,
Seeing your smile,
Just being with you,
***
Once my nights were dark,
But you see,
You are a light,
In my life to me.

Illegal Love Of 1947


I sit in my cell,
Thinking about my sin,
Wondering what I have done,
Thinking about him,
I sit on my own.
***
I stand by the window,
Thinking what is love really,
Wondering what could have been done,
Thinking what is reality,
I stand by myself.
***
I love a man,
Thinking what is wrong,
Wondering what society has done,
Thinking why love is gone,
I love on my own.
