David Andre' Klopper Poems
Music keeps me swinging, Swinging down big city streets, Wondering just who I shall meet, How shall I greet? Who will I defeat?
Life sure is a mystery, Every day we repeat our history, A giant lake, Filled with all our mistakes,
My heart bleeds through my tears, A river meanders through the desert sands, From pain life springs forth, An Oasis appears from the barren land,
A Strong Mind and a Gentle Heart
I was on top of the mountain looking down, There you were, stuck on the ground, In life I had it all, never had to crawl, If there was beauty, it was all around me,
Life on earth is hard, It is something we earned, Every day a body is burned, What a terrible fate,
No Sorrow Tomorrow
One day there'll be no more sorrow, One day we'll be free, One day no one will cry, One day the blind shall see!
A Leap of Love
Did I ask too much? Or am I just losing my touch? Is it a step too far for you to leap? Or do I just make you weep?
Peace In The Light
Like Moths to a flame, trying to see, The poor in spirit, seek to break free, To avoid the abyss, Search with all their might,
Rio is rocking, my heart is unblocking, I'm looking for some sugar, for my loaf, Down alleyways, through the maze, I look in every gutter, for your love,
Washed in the Holy River, purified by faith, Darkness calls but is seen dead like a wraith, Your spirit, enlivened by the Holy Dove, Desert wastelands beckon, calling to your love,
Stoney paths underfoot, And my courage it shook, Dry mouth and cracked lips, Will I ever find my way home again?
You shine like a Moonbeam, Bringing your day into my night, Been lost in a storm waiting for your Light, Where have you been all my life?
For the Love of Man
From the break of day through the noon sun, We toil until our work is done Drained we turn to the ones we love, Searching always for that special One,
When she looks at me my heart it aches, When she looks away my heart it breaks, Your eyes green like the emerald sea, Give me your all and it will be alright,

Music keeps me swinging,
Swinging down big city streets,
Wondering just who I shall meet,
How shall I greet? Who will I defeat?
Following my nose, my excitement grows,
Pavements just come and go,
What do I owe?
How will I know?
Is it too late to grow?
As above so below is all I know,
Gonna reap what you sow!
Rhythm of the street,
Every tune another beat,
Temple Emmanuel, ringing bell,
Nothing to sell,
If only you knew me well!
Heartbeat in a foreign land,
Memories like grains of sand,
Moving through life day by...
