The Grail

Lancelot lays down his helmet
Slowly takes off his shield and plate
Hangs up his sword by its hilt
and gives thanks for his fate
Eyes to the heavens
He breathes, relieved and free
No more into the battle
He has forged his destiny
By being bold and courageous
Taking to the field with might
By bearing arms and being open
He has won this epic fight
With soft word and observation
By learning what he needs
When to give and be beholden
When to cease all worthy deeds
He progressed towards his grail
To find a love that truly gave
Meaning and feeling to his actions
Without a damsel he had to save
A partner for the journey
A companion, muse and more
Someone to inspire life learning
To adventure with and explore
Well now the first quest is completed
He has found the one he sought
She is glorious in her powers
With her he wants for nought
So he hangs his well used armour
He retires the weapons used thus far
And looks to a bright new future
A new quest alongside this new star
She is the one, she is his true love
But even after such a search
There is much to do to relationship form
He really wants to prove his worth
It’s a different battle starting
With heart filled over the brim
So happy, warm and contented
He has a new passion within

Can’t Let You Go

Can’t let go
Won’t let go
Want you to know
Want to know
I won’t let go

In our forty nights
In our forty days
I keep finding more love
Much more love for you
Love you in every way

Can’t let go
Won’t let go
Want you to know
Want to know
I won’t let go

Ohhh my heart
This is just the start
Loving you together
Love when we’re apart
This is only the start

Can’t let go
Won’t let go
Want you to know
Want to know
I won’t let go

All that I need
In a you and a me
All that I am
I give to you free
I give you for free

Can’t let go
Won’t let go
Want you to know
Want to know
I won’t let go

Ascent without Fall

In a cab to see you
Think of our first touch
Nervous, excited
It means so much
I can’t think straight
It means the end of apart
Feeling warm together
The second stage start
The phase when you know
More and more and more
You know I love you
That you are my “what for”
A reason for it all
A muse to inspire me
The ascent without fall
Can see your face
The fit of your hand
Wrapped in each other
Everything as planned

Love is like being Cursed

A single tear rolls down my cheek
Lying in bed no will to wake
Thinking of you and that you’re not here
For all the difference it will make
There’s happiness deep within me
A sense that we can be whole
That you are my forever one
That my quest has found its goal
My heart heaves and I sigh
My body aches for a lack of you
My mind races through all you are
Agitated, addicted, nothing to do
No way to scratch the itch
Nothing to do to slake the thirst
Being in love is to be blessed
But in your absence it’s like being cursed

Contactless Now Go

Headphones on, the stairs I descend
Dreaming of the working days end
Step onto empty littered street
With no one around to greet
Turn and head for the northern tube
Past the fractured bus stop queue
Pause for coffee to ease morning low
Attempt to break the silence with hello
The barista doesn’t want to know
Hands over the cup and leaves you contactless now go

Train filled with vacant stares
Commuters who aren’t really there
Minds away from where they are
Thoughts of escape to take them off afar
Grey bubbles passing from A to Z
Repeated patterns from first breath to bed
Eyes fixed on the slatted floor,
Standing, waiting, but what for?
Didn’t we all want more?
Cold and contactless huddled lonely by the door

Love’s not a Source of Fear

There will come a time, you’ll see
When love won’t be a source of fear
There’s a future where you’ll be free
To open your heart to someone near
The scars of aching breaks and falls
Can heal and hurt be wiped clean
Believe in a love that never stalls
Trust, you’ll find what life can mean

There Might Be Love

He lies back phone in hand
Joy and the ultimate release
No one else can understand
How hard he has tried to please
The people he’s met for dates on end
Family worried about his life
His ever present friend
His kids, his ex wife
Now a new chapter can start
She has said in single text enough
To cause relief, lift the stress
By suggesting, that just maybe, there might be love

Why Did You Say That?

Why was it that you said
Just before we went to bed
You feared we might not be
That tomorrow night we’d see
If a week of texts and calls
Had any real grounds at all
How could you think it so
How is it you don’t know
That while we’ve not had time
Cannot prove that we’re aligned
There’s a bond between us two
A passion in me for you
Reasons to believe this match
Will all doubts dispatch
And that while we wait to see
If this will last, you for me
And me for you, in love
Believe this might be enough

Complete

Each walking couple
Each hand that is held
Reminds me of us
And our brand new world
You’re not at my side
You are here in my heart
I’m thinking of us
And how right from the start
Every thought spoken
Every smallest deed
Has increased the love
And deepened the need
For you.
Just you and no more
Like nothing I’ve felt
Like no one before
I could list out your virtues
Recite all that you are
But it’s simple to me;
You’re the best fit by far
So I see you in others
As I walk down the street
I’m dreaming, believing
You make me complete
