Upon a silent hill
where life and death collide,
between the past,
and the present moments' glory.
For every questing heart,
the path is light from inside.
And all the rest of it, is just your story.
You are much more than enough.
You're a Warrior of Love.
          --Louis Martin
  Introduction
I have been writing and performing my own songs, in churches and at workshops, off and on for the last several years as a way to express some of what I have been experiencing with Spirit.
The lyrics that I've included on this page are three of the songs that people have liked the most and responded to, in the deepest ways. I want to share the lyrics with you, in the hope that they will inspire you as well.
I expect to include the songs themselves on my site, as well as make them available to purchase, as soon as possible.  I hope they inspire you. Thank you for taking the time to check them out.
Love and Light, Louis M :-)
         Warrior of Love
I've been looking in the shadows,
where the mystery was born.
I've been kneeling with the statues,
in the sun that keeps me warm.
I've been following the footsteps,
of the one's who've come and gone.
I've been flying with the eagles,
to the center of the storm.

Late in the afternoon, purple fills the sky.
Stretching out the evening's awning.
My heart explodes with joy, I hear a baby's cry.
And I have seen the light of a new day dawning.
As below, so above.
I'm a warrior of love.

Take the shackles from my feet,
and the madness from my mind.
Let the circle be complete,
like this moment out of time.
Make the Earth and Heavens speak to me,
I have been deaf dumb and blind.
Now every flower's gone to seed,
with every dream my heart can find.

As I turn within to the emptiness erased.
I am lifted up by the hands that adore me.
The whole wide Universe is filled with Peace and Grace,
The door of Life is opening before me.
Giving me the Faith and Trust,
of a Warrior of Love.

I've been talking with the voiceless,
in the dungeons of the wronged.
I've been conscious of the choices,
from the past that can't go on.
I've been listening for the music,
of the spheres that sing my song.
I'm alive and live to choose this,
love is the switch that turns me on.

Upon a silent hill where life and death collide,
between the past, and the present moments' glory.
For every questing heart, the path is light from inside.
And all the rest of this, it's just your story.
You are, much more than enough.
You're a Warrior of Love.

  Finding My Voice

Sometimes I'm too sensitive,
I hear it again, and again.

I catch myself with an unkind word,
for a lover or a friend.

There's so many chances to take,
and fences to mend.

Now I'm drawing inside straight
to the ace in my hand.

Let me go on record.
I have made my choice.

I'm only here for one thing,
that's finding my voice.

Sometimes I'm too serious,
when the heartbreak comes down.

Till the freedom's delirious,
and I laugh till I drown.

There's a story behind every face,
and a father for every son.

And a final curtain call,
for every act we have done.

Let me go on listening,
to the silence beyond the noise.

I could feel something missing,
now I'm finding my voice.

Sometimes I'm too cynical,
I can't hold out for the change.

I see myself in the looking glass
and my face seems so strange.

There's a moment in everyone's life,
you can't hide what you know.

We tear at the darkness inside,
and heal what we show.

Let me go on looking, at the light,
no night destroys.

I can see what I've been seeking,
and I'm finding my voice.

Sometimes I'm too impatient,
for any word to fill the space.

I float on a sea of fantasy
between desperation and grace.

There's a longing in each human heart
to touch the face of God.

We wait on the sidelines,
for a wink or a nod.

Let me go on living,
in love's sweet employ.

The gift is in the giving,
finding my voice.

Let me go on dreaming,
of a world of peace and joy.

It's the signal I'm receiving
and I'm finding my voice.

  I Believe In You

Don't let anyone ever tell you no,
or that your dreams won't come true.
You will reap every seed you sew.
I believe in you.

Don't let anyone ever break your heart.
Make you feel sad and blue.
You are here to play your part.
I believe in you.

There's a light and it's shining bright.
I've watched it blaze the whole night through.
Like a star that's shines so far.
How I believe in you.

Don't let anyone ever shake your faith.
Everybody's searching for a clue.
You have got something to say.
I believe in you.

There's a path through the forest deep,
where the messenger gets through.
Every gift you give is all I keep.
How could I not believe in you?

Don't let anyone ever slow you down,
in the end, that's all they could do.
Upon your head, you wear a crown.
I believe in you.

I believe in you.
