Hello Love, you sure feel good
Better than I thought you would
Hello Love this feels right
Won’t you go home with me tonight

Hello Love, I saw it in your eyes
I knew it was love, at first sight
Hello Love from that first kiss
I got the feeling that this was it

Hello Love, you sure feel good
Hello Love, better than I thought it would
Hello Love this feels right
Won’t you go home with me tonight

Hello Love, holding you in my arms
Music playing this is our song
Hello Love, dancing in the moonlight
Hello Love you're in the air tonight

Hello Love, you sure feel good
Hello Love, better than I thought you would
Hello Love, this feels right
**** lo Loove; take me home tonight
Oh, how I long to be on the stage
If I only had the discipline to keep the demons at bay
Last night another song was composed in my mind
I saw my fingers on the strings; my rhythm hand strumming along
I was up on the stage playing my guitar
And people were singing my song
Hello Love
Tim Emminger Apr 20
Did you ever wonder why the colors of spring
the green, purple, pink and white glow so bright
Instinctively the colors peak as if celebrating something
Mother Nature puts on her Sunday's best
could it be in honor of the One that was crucified, died
and came back alive after he was laid to rest
Happy Easter
Tim Emminger Mar 28
Baseball’s Opening Day is Cincinnati’s Day
We’re a city that knows how to celebrate
This year we do it a sesquicentennial way
One hundred and fifty years; the first professional baseball team
Another World Series Championship do we dare to dream

How about the Findley Market parade
A centennial, one hundred years we celebrate
There is no place like Cincinnati on Opening Day
Rain or cold, warmth and sunshine
For hundred years; Cincinnati, the parade route we have lined

Opening Day in Cincinnati is the only way; it’s a holiday!
We are proud, we own it; it’s the Cincinnati way
The beginning of the season; the beginning of spring
A new reason for us to dream

Trying to Make Sense
Tim Emminger Mar 10
What can you say
What can you do
Can you make sense of this world
Or are you just another fool

Are you a person who loves
Or a person that hates
Do you try to understand
Do you try to relate

We are all different
Doing the best that we can
A product of our world
You are who you are; I am who I am

Do you try to love; life is so short
Try to have an open mind and an open heart
Do you have to be right and someone else wrong
Can your opinion differ but still get along

What can you say
What can you do
Can you make sense of this world
Or are you just another fool

The Only One I Need
Tim Emminger Mar 9
You light up the world with your smile
You are the sunshine on a sandy beach
The blue sky and the beauty of the sea
You are everything that a man needs
The only one that I need

Would you like to ride this wave and see
High tide or low tide you are the tide for me
The wave that washes over the sand
The wave that makes a man, a man
The only wave that I need

You make me laugh, you make me cry
You give me a feeling that fuels my drive
For you I would die
You are everything, everything that I desire
The only thing, the only one I need

The Cruise
Tim Emminger Mar 9
The ship, a giant bobber in the middle of the sea
The water an emerald green
A place where the mind like a bird is set free
Nothing to see but water for miles
A blue sky and some passing clouds
At night you can see every star in the sky
The mind racing around the galaxy
Chasing the constellations in the sky
Apr 2018 · 142
Let The Pen Flow
Tim Emminger Apr 2018
Let the pen flow see where it goes
Someone might like it; you never know
Sometime you write and think it’s great
Don’t be discouraged if others don’t relate

Other times you just write on a whim
You get so many views; people just binge
As I like to say Write On! Write On!
One day your poem may even be a song

So, let the pen flow; see where it goes
Write about your feelings, or about what hear and see
You may help someone feel better; make them smile, laugh
Or give them some peace
Let the pen flow; see where it goes

In the Early Morning light
Tim Emminger Apr 2018
In the early morning light
When the moon and the stars are still in the sky
There is the peacefulness of a beautiful life
The commotions of this world are miles away
I treasure these moments before I start my day
Oh the beauty of the early morning light

In the early morning light
With my coffee in my hand
The dog is doing his thing
While I enjoy the beauty of the land
Oh the beauty of the early morning light

In the early morning light
A new day has begun
A brand new start for everyone
Oh the beauty of the early morning light

If I Could Only Tell You
Tim Emminger Apr 2018
If I could only tell you that I love you
All my dreams would come true
You are always on my mind
Yet I keep waiting for the right time

If I could only tell you that I love you
You could hear the conversations that we have
As we walk down the street hand in hand
If I could only tell you that I love you
I think you would love me too

If I could only tell you that I love you
Maybe you could feel this amazing feeling
If I could look into your eyes and hold you in my arms
We could be slow dancing to every love song
If I could only tell you that I love you
All my dreams would come true

It's the Fall Season
Tim Emminger Oct 2017
It’s the fall season as the trees imitate life
They have weathered the storms
It’s their time to shine, leaves colorful and bright
But the winds will blow; the leaves will tumble down
Left ***** in the snow until Spring comes around

It’s your fall season as you live your life
You will weather a few storms
Then shine colorful and bright
You peak, the winds blow, and you tumble down
Then like a Phoenix you rise from the ashes for another round

It’s the fall season
Beauty someone will see
Be it the trees and the leaves
Or you and me

Try A Little Bit Harder
Tim Emminger Oct 2017
Won’t you try, just a little bit harder
Take it just a little bit farther
Than you did yesterday

Won’t you come, just a little bit closer
Let me toast you
You made me feel better today

Don’t you leave; without making a difference
Give the world your deliverance
Show us what you got today

Everybody now; let’s try a little bit harder
Take things just a little bit farther
Bring peace and love to the world today

Paradox In My Mind
Tim Emminger Oct 2017
There is a paradox in my mind
It has been there for some time
A world with you and I
The paradox in my mind

A world with no hate
Just love wouldn’t it be great
No violence to determine your fate
How does this paradox rate

Yes there is a paradox in my mind
Loving one another is no crime
Setting your egos aside
Life really can be divine

Won’t you think about it; give yourself some time
Is your anger real or something that you lost control of overtime
Let it go, enjoying life is no crime
Let this paradox grow in your mind
Apr 2017 · 222
ALL
Tim Emminger Apr 2017
ALL
All that you say
All that you pray
You touch someone every day

All that you hear
All that you feel
When you do for others it helps you both heal

All that you see
All you can be
Everyone matters so aim to please

Give Me A Chance
Tim Emminger Apr 2017
I have a rosary with a guitar pick hanging on my rear view mirror
Today I took it off and prayed the rosary for the first time in many years
I look at the rosary every day; I’m a dreamer and I have a dream that won’t go away
So I look at the guitar pick on that rosary and it reminds me to pray
Lord give me a chance to get up on a stage
Give me a chance to play

A Beautiful Time
Tim Emminger Apr 2017
Early in the morning is a beautiful time
You walk outside and see the moon and the stars in the sky
The birds are singing even before the sun begins to rise
The new day has begun; it's so great to be alive
Early in the morning is a beautiful time

Opening Day (Cincinnati)
Tim Emminger Apr 2017
Opening Day it’s a Cincinnati holiday
It starts off with the Findley Market parade
The Grand Marshall a former Red great
With the sound of a siren the parade is under way

The streets are lined with thousands of Reds fans
Waiting for the firetrucks, Red themed floats and the bands
On Fountain Square the vendors set up their booths
And you will find a band on the stage that likes to jam

The ***** Karate Girls will be playing before a sea of red
The hope and anticipation of a new baseball season is just ahead
The band will be playing in front of GABP
A packed baseball stadium is where you want to be

Our Cincinnati Reds take the field
Our World Series dreams start today; this is real
The first pitch, the first hit, the first steal
Opening Day in Cincinnati is the real deal

Spring
Tim Emminger Mar 2017
Amongst the barren trees and evergreens
The beautiful white leaves of the pear trees
The low lying bushes begin to green
The crocus and tulips at full bloom
It must be Spring

Write
Tim Emminger Mar 2017
The things I see in my mind
Pure craziness all the time
So I try to put words together and make them rhyme
Somehow this helps me to unwind

Sometimes it's about me
Sometimes about what I hear or see
Everybody has experienced heartbreak, everybody has seen the sea
When it comes to understanding; writing is what helps me

As an athlete I always heard no pain no gain
When it comes to feelings and understanding it's the same
Your heart and soul you sacrifice
To work thru your pain you write

You have your lows, you have your highs
Enjoy the journey it is life
If something keeps running around in your mind
Write it down, I do it all the time

Full Moon In The Sky
Tim Emminger Mar 2017
There is a full moon in the sky
I walked out the door and it caught my eye
I hopped in my car and I began to drive
The moon was my guiding light

Cruising down the road I couldn’t help but stare
Around every turn that full moon was still there
My mind was wondering here, there and everywhere
That beautiful moon with its guiding glare

There is something about a full moon in the sky
There is an energy that makes you feel alive
Oh that beautiful full moon in the sky
Feb 2017 · 144
Enjoy Life
Tim Emminger Feb 2017
The sun rising up out of the ocean
A beautiful morning sky
A peacefulness washing over you
As a new day comes alive

Life is so simple when you enjoy nature's gifts
It's not until you sit back and relax
That you realize what you miss

Take the time to enjoy a sunrise
Or a beautiful sunset
A walk on the beach
There is nothing better to put the mind to rest
Feb 2017 · 221
The Lord Sent Me An Angel
Tim Emminger Feb 2017
The Lord sent me an Angel when I was down
I was ready to give up; I was lower than the ground
The Lord sent me an Angel to turn my life around

The Lord sent me an Angel when I couldn't figure this world out
I lacked the understanding and knowledge; all I could do was wonder about
The Lord sent me an Angel with the wisdom to help me out

The Lord sent me an Angel with a smile on her face
That Angel made me feel good inside; God's saving grace
The Lord sent me an Angel; today I feel great
The Lord sent me an Angel because I had faith
Tim Emminger Feb 2017
I'm a long way from heaven
and a short way from ****
In this crazy world we live in
I'm going to chase my dreams and pray it turns out well

I'm going to keep searching for rainbows
and that elusive *** of gold
I live free, I dream, always trying to see how far I can go
May my enthusiasm for life be forever told

Live Free! Chase Your Dreams!
Tim Emminger Feb 2017
I'm going to write me a love story
and its going to start with you
I'm going to write me a love story
because you chased away the blues

Like the sun rising
I love waking up next to you
I'm going to write me a love story
and its going to start with you

Like the midday sun that makes you feel so warm
That's the way I feel when you are in my arms
I'm going to write me a love story
and it's going to start with you

Like the beautiful sunset
The last of the day is the best
You put my mind at ease and heart at rest
I'm going to write me a love story
and it's all because of you

I'm going to write me a love story
and its going to start with you
I'm going to write me a love story
because you chased away the blues
a song I'm working on, modified to poetry

Everything Will Be Alright
Tim Emminger Jan 2017
The winter air has it's bite
The sunshine makes me warm inside
In the world everything isn't right
but with love in your heart
Everything will be alright

Be Yourself
Tim Emminger Jan 2017
Is it acceptance that makes you
Is it others opinions, why you do what you do
Do you stop to ask yourself; who are you

Is it likes and emoji s that make your day
If you think about it; does it mean anything
Be yourself forget about everybody else
You are beautiful because you are like nobody else
Jan 2017 · 182
Give Me A Guitar
Tim Emminger Jan 2017
Give me a guitar and I will play you a song
Build me a campfire and everybody can sing along
Give me some moon light and we can dance thru the night
Walk down to the river everything will be alright
Give me a guitar and I will play you a song
Tim Emminger Jan 2017
Close your eyes and dream away
The sun is shining
It's Dawn the sun is rising
A beautiful sunset

Close you eyes and dream away
Can you see that beautiful rainbow
If you believe in what you are searching
You will find your *** of gold

Close you eyes and dream away
Hear your favorite song
Go ahead and sing along
Let the musical instruments touch your soul

Close you eyes and dream away
Somebody loves you and it will always be that way
Feel the love; its a beautiful day

Close you eyes and dream away
Close you eyes and dream away
Close you eyes and dream away
Open you eyes this is a beautiful day
Jan 2017 · 205
Rainbow
Tim Emminger Jan 2017
Today God is showing us a rainbow
The one he looks upon to remember his convenant
A sign of his promise
That He will always remember us

After the storm there was a rainbow
God said to Noah this is a token of my covenant
Which I have established between me
and all flesh that is upon the earth

Today there is a rainbow
To remind us of the love
We all have to believe in something
Why not the One who leaves beautiful signs above
A Christian song I'm working on. Hope you enjoy

2017 A New Year
Tim Emminger Dec 2016
A New Year, a new beginning

Believe in yourself! You can improve
A little effort makes a better you
Lose some weight, have more income, maybe find that special someone
Everything is possible: see it thru until it's done
May your New Year be second to none

Thanksgiving Past
Tim Emminger Nov 2016
Remembering Thanksgiving Days past
Getting together for football with the guys
Back in the car to hear Alice's Restaurant just in time
Then heading off to have Thanksgiving with family
Then home to set up the tree
Didn't have much money then but I really didn't mind
Those Thanksgivings were the best of times
Nov 2016 · 561
A Thankful End
Tim Emminger Nov 2016
I'm thankful for you
I'm thankful for me
I'm thankful for all the food; especially the turkey
I'm thankful for Thanksgiving

Get together with family
Get together with friends
If you have any enemies make amends
So you can be thankful in the end
Happy Thanksgiving

Feel The Peace

Turn the lights down low
Forget about the world
See where this goes

Listen to the music
Set you mind free
Let your imagination run wild
Now you are living; feel the peace

You Are On My Mind
Tim Emminger Aug 2016
You are on my mind
Our spirits connected when I looked into your eyes
I can see your face and that image makes me feel great
I can hear your voice and the conversations that we had
You are on my mind and I'm feeling blessed.
A song I'm working on

Midnight Hour
Tim Emminger Aug 2016
It's the midnight hour
Goodbye yesterday, today is tomorrow
Goodbye pain, goodbye sorrow
It's a new start, today is tomorrow

There is something special about the midnight hour
In the darkness the moon is the guiding light
You pick yourself up and begin to fight
You only live once and this is your life
There is something special about midnight
Driving into work this Sunday morning, listing to the preacher on the radio. He talked about how magical the midnight hour was.
Tim Emminger Aug 2016
Life goes on like a beautiful song
Sometimes the note rises and sometimes it falls
The tempo picks up and then it slows
Life goes on like a beautiful song.

Some songs make you feel like dancing
Sometime you have to sing the blues
You might like rapping; it's up to you
Sit around the campfire and sing along
Life goes on like a beautiful song

Finding Utopia
Tim Emminger Jul 2016
On the ocean the full moon shown its light
It created a pathway a mystical sight
In my mind I followed its path
From the shoreline to the horizon I found utopia at last

Walking In The Rain
Tim Emminger Jul 2016
I was out walking when it started to rain
I thought about running but continued walking just the same
I started laughing when I looked down at the ground
The raindrops bouncing off the pavement,
looked like little frogs jumping around
I'm easily amused
Jul 2016 · 215
Listen To Your Heart
Tim Emminger Jul 2016
Listen to your heart
Hear what is good inside
Follow your heart
Never question why
Listen to your heart and everything will be alright

Love your brother no matter what
Ignore any harsh words, never give up
Forgive others so you can sleep at night
Listen to your heart and everything will be alright

Seashell On The Shore
Tim Emminger Jul 2016
I found a seashell on the shore
I raised it to my ear
Just to see what I hear
I heard the sea roar
My mind started to explore
I found a seashell on the shore

I found a seashell on the shore
I raised it to my ear
Just to see what I hear
I heard the waves racing to me
It set my mind free and helped me find peace
I found a seashell by the shore, next to the sea

Find your seashell on the shore
Raise it to your ear
What do you hear
How does it make you feel
Find your seashell on the shore, the freedom is real
Jul 2016 · 698
Like So Many Times Before
Tim Emminger Jul 2016
The waves come washing in
The wave go washing out
Like so many times before

Footprints and seashells in the sand
You can see near and far, like so many times before
The waves come washing in and out, like so many times before

The sunset rises up out of the water
People gather on shore, like so many times before
The waves come washing in and out, like so many times before

The waves come washing in
The waves go washing out
Like so many times before

A Few Scribbled Lines
Tim Emminger Jun 2016
Just a few words
A few scribbled lines
I try to describe what's playing in my mind.

I love beautiful sunrises and hearing the ocean waves roll in
The noon time sunlight dancing on the water or hearing the wind
Walking along the beach looking for sea shells or fishing off the  pier
I take it all in; then let my mind say what it feels
Jun 2016 · 434
Strolling In The Park
Tim Emminger Jun 2016
Off on my morning stroll to Pride Park I go
A squirrel dashes from the path, up the tree and out a branch
It leaps and flies unto another tree
The trail has just started what else lies ahead for me

The smell of honeysuckle fills the air
The birds and the crows are all I hear
A little further, a turtle sits in the middle of the trail
Holding its head high, proud to be there

My best friend Duke and I snake around this wooded trail
We take in the sights and the smells in the air
We walk along waiting for the sun to rise
Then arising between the trees, a new beginning right before our eyes

Believe

Kentucky Derby 2016
Tim Emminger May 2016
The sun rises up over the Kentucky hills
The horses in the pasture are slowly strolling around
But today is different
Today is the Kentucky Derby

The quietness of the morning will soon turn to excitement
The pageantry will unfold; the hats, the costumes
The mint juleps and the red roses
The sounding of the trumpets
And the singing of My Old Kentucky Home

Many know nothing about horse racing
The Kentucky Derby horses; they can maybe name a few
We’re proud people in Kentucky; the Kentucky Derby is ours
Come on down to Louisville it’s the Run for the Roses
With open arms we will welcome you
Apr 2016 · 204
Love and Hate
Tim Emminger Apr 2016
Love and Hate
Smiles or Frowns
You are the one to choose
What you project has a affect on those around

Love and Hate
Both feelings can be great
I've been blessed; hatred has never penetrated my heart
Yet I see hatred in others slowly tear them apart

Love or Hate
You are the one to choose
We all get mad and have hatred pop in our heads
Sometimes we're scared and don't understand

Love or Hate
Both feelings can be great
If you let hatred take control
The most hurt will be felt in your own soul

Love or Hate
Choose LOVE!

Drift Away
Tim Emminger Mar 2016
I close my eyes and drift away
I see sunshine and a blue sky a beautiful day
In my world I have a smile on my face
I see love and children at play

Would you like to join me and drift away
Come along and find your happy place
Close your eyes and drift away
When you open them everything will be ok

Close your eyes and drift away
Together we can find our happy place

Christmas In A Bottle
Tim Emminger Dec 2015
I'm going to capture the Christmas Spirit in a bottle
And keep it for a year
When I find someone who is down on their luck
I will pour them a cup
Remind them that the Savior is always there
No disrespect to anybody but believing works for me. Merry Christmas!

A Beautiful Night

The moon is smiling at the stars tonight
The stars are filling up the sky
Oh what a beautiful, a beautiful night
Oh what a beautiful, a beautiful life

The moon is full in the sky tonight
The moonbeams are dancing on the water, everything is just right
Oh what a beautiful, a beautiful night
Oh what a beautiful, a beautiful life

You eyes are sparkling like the stars in the sky
My heart is as full as the moon tonight
Oh what a beautiful, a beautiful night
Oh what a beautiful, a beautiful life
