Love your life

Blank page, clean slate
It’s up to you what you make
Curves or a straight line
Paint fast or take your time
Draw an expansive landscape
Sketch a fantasy portrait
Use colours bright or grey
It’s your decision every day
Make of this new start
A desire from the heart
Of this new page
A happier new stage
No matter what you do
Make sure the work, works for you

Simple Loves

Walking down your street in the early morn
Waking then falling back to sleep before the dawn
A break in the rain when the day is full of showers
A first sip of coffee when you had none for hours
The hope in the summer before you go away
A bite to eat when you’ve been hungry all day
Simple joys available to all
Be grateful for what’s in front of you
Smile at your good fortune
Be positive, that’s all you have to do

Three Words

In three words do lives entwine
A tapestry of climbing shoots and vines
Growing toward loves great light
Together strong against any plight
A man might wait for forty years
Until these crashing sounds he hears
So whenever spoken, quiet or loud
These three words should make you proud
Should make you meek and strive to be
Of this commitment, most worthy
What’s more, if this incantation comes
From the girl whose spirit you becomes
Then you’ve made it, found your goal
Your sun, your star, mate for your soul
In just three words said fleetingly
You can give of yourself completely
And so in return to you I say
I promise in word, in deed and every way
To be better than the day before
And love you for now and evermore

Love of life

Love of life and love of living
Enjoy, experience, travel but Little giving
Learn the lessons of the world
New countries, people, cultures unfurled
Find friends, discover, send ‘grams
No need for goals or mid term plans
Fit in by flying out
Quest for what life’s about
Never settle, no compromise
But shielded from country bagging eyes
Are simple joys.
Hands held by girls and boys
The smile given by a child
The glory of nature, wet and wild
The stories behind your fellow man
Learn of life, here you can
No need to see the fountain trevi
To collect countries, landmarks aplenty
Look around you near your home
It’s all there, no need to roam
So on media social don’t say your worthy
Because of expensive trips and sites
Be grounded, empathic, have wisdom wordly
You can’t buy it, try as you might

Soaring Love

Love ascends, it’s flying high
The hope you feel, makes you light
Your wings unfurl in her arms
You’re invulnerable, beyond harm
You soar together effort free
Released, you share completely
Every memory and every fear
Combined, closer, more near
Bound by heart, compelled by mind
Intrigued, beguiled by all you find
In her, the one that makes you fly
Life lifted by one look, eye to eye

Braille Man

He walks through life at peace
He’s come to terms with pain
He takes insults with ease
It’s not fear on his face engrained
There’s nothing he can do
So little he can say
To refresh judgements, to renew
He was just made this way
From birth he bore the mark
Covered in dots and mounds
But he’s so much more
Than the skin he now confounds
He’s grown beyond his growths
He’s determined not to fail
He will make of life the most
He’s not just the man of Braille

Quiet before the Storm

Quiet before the storm
No sign of what’s to come
Silence, hours after dawn
Still warmth of the sun
No one seems to know
Though I’m feeling sick
Stomach shaking so
The news approaches quick
A last look into eyes
Innocent until they hear
Parents groans and sighs
The maelstrom very near
A last laugh out loud
A smile of loving care
Then into a veil of cloud
Strong winds you cannot bare
Words stick in the throat
Sound carries meanings raw
No attempt to sugar coat
The fact we are no more
What was one is now
Split and separate
No point in why or how
The break is definite
So convey the message
Say that you do feel
Keep the young ones safe
But tell them this is real
They will adapt to change
The fix here is for the best
Future happiness arranged
In two divided nests
Their eyes forever wiser
You hope their hearts will trust
You’ve been honest, fair
And your reasoning is just


This is your last day alone
Today is the end of your wander
Forlorn hope living on your own
Until now every chance squandered

Tonight, you meet your partner
All you have learned works out
Your self knowledge, insights garnered
Are shared, no disguise, little doubt

Electric sparks when holding hands
Attraction, chemistry ensured
Relaxed talking through life plans
Open, honest, self assured

He recognises you as potential kin
Wants to build a house, a home
Wants to help you, the situation you are in
Sounds like a match in calm warm tone

Be happy.
Believe in tonight
You might be well suited
You might.

Founded on the Sand

Of all the things to do
Of all the things to happen
He had to say “we’re through”
Had to leave me cold and barren
The house we had been building
Turns out was founded on the sand
The rains have washed away our home
And left me alone in a foreign land
There’s nothing left of us
No sense in trying to mend the rift
He has cleansed his heart of me
Cut me loose, detached, adrift
