David Andre' Klopper Poems
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,
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,
Life on earth is hard, It is something we earned, Every day a body is burned, What a terrible fate,
Winter nights are cold, And you're feeling old, Stuck under the overpass, You just can't get past,
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!
No More Tomorrows
No more words to say, Sadly you went away, Now the sky is grey, Don't know what to say,
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?
Love Is Not What You Think It Is
It starts with a gentle feeling, then It builds to a quiet yearning, It might start to hurt, then, You'll know all about the burning.
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?
There you go running this way and that,
You mean well but you haven't thought it through,
You sweat the big tears and cry yourself to sleep when alone,
You forgot that time heels nothing but the heart can heal everything,
You remember enough to feel guilty, but not enough to know why,
Look back man, look back to find and forgive yourself,
I should have waited, I know, but I forgave you anyway,
Please find yourself so that you can forgive me,
