Albert Ralph Poems

September 20,1983

In the midst of falling rain, I find I’m not falling.

June –August 1983

Obviously, buoyed and happier than the last song. This song always seemed to be to be a Neil Young song. If I could do the voice, that’s how I would sing it.

June? 1983

Through the depths of blackest night, I wandered.

Isn't is strange, the way we change?
The words are different but the.... song's the same.
When we're young, life is fun.
We aren't tied down, we've got, time to run.

A circle drawn upon the paper; Is that a goal, for a sad man?
Another line upon my forehead; is that the wage, for knowing?
Knowing that, you can never own a woman’s love.
No matter what, you can never call all the shots.

FROM WITHIN (song from a cloud)

Joni saw the clouds from both sides,
But did she see them from within?


Six o’clock Sunday morning,
Falling asleep at the wheel.

POETESS (An Honest Song)

This song was written for Nancy Wilson of the band Heart.
I was a big fan of their early music.


This, like so many of the others, is so much more effective, if one can hear the music as well. The ethereal start, with breaks between stanzas for melodic development, gradually build into a crescendo of acoustic guitars, and then...............
The chorus, 'No amount of rain', begins the 'NO AMOUNT OF VOLUME'. is enough for the rocking finish.

April 7 – 14th,1983 with Sam Carvello

June 30th- July 1st,1983 2: 00 a.m. – 4: 30 a.m.

Children of the moment, everywhere you look,

August 1983

Sounds of laughing waters in my thought,

The Best Poem Of Albert Ralph

My Umbrella

September 20,1983

In the midst of falling rain, I find I’m not falling.
Cats and dogs don’t hound me.
Rain clouds roll by.
Storm clouds piled high.
My umbrella, keeps the falling rain from drowning me.

Hold me close! See me flying!
Red skies, do not mourn for me.
Sailors worry, Jailors scurry.
But my umbrella keeps the falling rain from washing me away.

It’s been said to me,
That a smile should be your umbrella.
Well I suppose that it may be true,
But it goes much deeper than that.
Because a smile is just another coat you wear,
But the rain chills to the bone.
So from now on I’ll be wearing my smile,
Right next to my heart.

Because a broken heart can cause a lot of pain,
But a broken smile is a smile all the same.
And broken dreams can drive a man insane,
But a broken umbrella still holds out some rain.

Rain oh rain cloud, Pass away now.
Come on back another day,
Cause my umbrella wants to play.

In the midst of all my pain, I find, I’m not hurting.
No longer all wrapped up.
A new wind stirs now.
My mind it clears now.
Nows the time to catch the sun before it flies away.

Hold me close! Let’s go flying!
Blue skikes soaring in your eyes!
Take my hand now.
No need to land now.
Sailing, drifting, wings of love can carry you and I away.
It’s been said to me, that a smile should be your umbrella.
