Treasure
By Tiffany Dixon

Help me get ready for you Lord
I know you're coming for me
I want to become your beautiful bride
with a dress as white as can be

My eyes are wide open, starry bright
they look up toward the sky
My soul solely sits in wait for you
to do what you must do

Have mercy on me- my Lord, my King
Wash all the sin away
and bring me into your secret space
so I don't pass away

I'm holy now, please set me a place
to sit with you and dine
'till sunrise brings new joy to my face
and my soul your fire refines

As I think of your love, it makes me see
your rainbow of bliss that's filling me
while we sit by the field of peonies
that tickle me, as you sing to me

I get on my knees and cry out to thee: 
Won't you come to me Lord, stop being a tease!
You laugh and you say- Don't go away! 
I'm here with you now; forever this way

I'll love you forever, 'till death do us part
Oh wait! That's forever- we never will part!
My heart is inside you; my mind is your mind
my love is a treasure you must seek to find

Just seek me and seek me, and I will be there
to bear all your burdens, no love can compare
to the way I love you, and your eagerness
to seek me and give me your emptiness

I'll fill you and love you while you journey this life
to seek me and find me, like the morning light
You'll find me I promise, I'll be waiting there
just behind that door- with you everywhere!

In Love
By Tiffany Dixon

Two doves, in love, fly as clouds up above
looking for a place, to rest and make love
The waiting is over, together at last
with love as the future, they let go of the past

Their journey was harsh, but it made their love stronger;
soon they won't be apart- anymore, any longer
There it is! Down below! A balcony roost
Their paradise waits- almost time to seduce

They swoop down and down, and land on the railing
and gaze 'round to see what the scene is unveiling
Their journey complete! Time for frisky play
they hop and cavort all their worries away

They kiss, hug and tumble around and around
while the world turns in circles and mountains surround
their grand love affair, so secret and sweet
that keeps them together, and makes them complete

Little Fish
By Tiffany Dixon

You are the Alpha and the Omega of my day and of my life
A doctor you hold my life in your hands, gripping the surgical knife

I'm a fish floating in this sea of confusion, looking for a rock to hide in
I need a transfusion to something that I can truly be alive in

Put this little fish inside you, to swim in your peaceful sea
To slumber and sleep and then splash all around in your spirit blissfully

The Bee
By Tiffany Dixon

Flowering rose, a touch so sweet
on the nape of my neck, until I sweat
My tensions fade, the Christ flows in
a hovering cape that's heaven sent

The floor's hot, I jump, caught in up the air
to my love who's where? He's right over there!
Off I go- shooting off- to heavens gate
He's waiting for me- me and my cape

Dive and dip to the top of the earths last stop
onto heavens floor, off to find it's door

I'm here! I'm here! 
I'm the door mi amor!
Oh I love you I do
You're the one I adore

All along you just knew
that's why you flew 
just right to me
you knew where I'd be!

Of course I knew
You're part of me
Where I go you must go
you're that scent to my nose

The flowering rose gives off it's sweet scent
The bees they must go, or else they'll lament
The loss of your scent, the loss of my flower
Is as a bee searching out, but finding no other!

You're here and I'm here, together at last
the bee and it's nectar, too good to pass
God picked you to be my flowering rose
His hand brought you here-oh smell- my sweet nose!

I buzzed and I flew to find you my love
can you wash me real clean- as white as a dove?
I need you, I want you, forever right here
or in there, or down- back down- tell me where!

Hush hush my love
I've given you life
You're white as a dove
Come with me, be my wife!

The Trance
By Tiffany Dixon

Come come, my sweet love- your fruit is now ripe
You're with me right now, and the rest of the night
Stars gaze at the light, it flashes right by
while they fall back asleep, and the moon says "oh my!"

The rush of the speed through the empty air
shoots us further away to almost nowhere
I know where we'll go- to a secret spot
of play times- sweet bliss of forget-me-nots

The purple you love, the pinks and the grays
to run in and jump in for now and for days!
They catch you and move you, and laugh while you sing
Lay flat- watch the way you coast like a wing!

Somehow and someday, I'll take you back home
but the laughter's too loud- let's go later, let's roam
I'll show you the way, I'll be your guide
You're all mine today, on the contrails we'll ride

The flowers, they're moving
Let's play and let's dance
Floating on them like foam
Drifting off in a trance

Flutes!
By Tiffany Dixon

I’m looking for a taste of heaven on earth- 
of what you have to give.
It’s not here, its not there, it’s not anywhere
won’t you show me how to live

Some fruit on this plain
and be ready for your reign….
I want your love; So I can obtain
just send from above
something I can be part of 

Turn me into a child, and let’s just run wild
In your field of strawberries, through your deep sanctuary
of oranges and plums, peanuts, raisins and mums
eating, laughing and making a mess with the crumbs!

OH your LOVE, there it IS
soft as silk-- warm as milk
to the new baby belly
  whose petals won’t wilt

‘cause you fed me and wed me
and nourished my bones
with your medley of flutes 
feeding down to my roots!

Worship
By Tiffany Dixon

Thank You Lord!  Thank You Lord!
Your word is a knight unleashing heavens sword!
You ARE that knight- so strong and brave;
once SPAT upon- you’ve reached the mountain of  FAME!

The heavens march, a loud PARADE
The drum beats loud as stars and skies cascade!
You’re the main star, the center sun, 
you stole the show- from the four corners- COME!

And worship HIM! And sing along-
and clap…
and jump….
Have FUN the whole day long!!
