It’s you I want to shelter

When the rain falls hard
From a dark brooding sky
It’s you I want to shelter
Even now. I don’t know why?
We’ve not been together
We’ve been so far apart
But it’s you in my head
When I feel low in my heart
What we had was an epic
That rolls on beyond its time
You define real belonging
I was yours and you were mine
I huddle in our shadow
And take comfort from the cold
That even though we ended
Our love does not feel old
There beneath my consciousness
It’s wrapped around my soul
So that when I’m losing hope
I feel it renew my life’s goal
Of finding someone as good
Finding someone just as true
Lifting her into my arms
And loving her instead of you

Appreciate Life

I appreciate life
It’s getting better
I appreciate you
As we get closer
I appreciate family
And feeling supported
I appreciate hope
Looking for the good
I appreciate people
All shapes and sizes
I appreciate my luck
In having all I have
I appreciate love
In all it’s many guises
I appreciate a friend
I’ll try to be one too
I appreciate the sunshine
Happiness and humour
I appreciate the rain
Making me stronger
I appreciate the wicked
I’ll watch and learn their lessons
I appreciate the meek
Quietly going about their day
I appreciate peace
With so many warring nations
I appreciate being nourished
With so many without what they need
I appreciate my power
To make life something special
I appreciate the time
To create something new

Broken Dreams

Broken dreams
Surround me it seems
Desires when I was life sure
Are torn apart, no more
A marriage at an end
Friendships I can’t mend
Close family at war
Bruised, battered and sore
You had given me hope
New dreams, emotions evoked
Hand held
Past demons felled
You felt what I felt
Lives meld
Differences were always there
Issues, conflicting beliefs aired
As all else merged
These conflicts diverged
Try as hard as we might
Our love forced them tight
But never together.
This dream wasn’t real
Despite the appeal
Of a new hope new goal
A chance to form one whole
Love. Defining what life means
Amongst a field of broken dreams

Emotion Expressed

Express your emotions
Let out what you feel
Keep on explaining
That the love you have is real

It doesn’t matter the medium
It doesn’t matter the care
That’s taken to love convey
To get your insides out there

Don’t temper your message
Deliver pure and simple truth
If it’s strong then it’s strong
Go shout it, raise the roof

Take care with your subject
Reflect on what is said in return
Don’t hammer unwelcome doors
Don’t risk bridges being burned

Express your emotions
Let out what you feel
Keep on explaining
That the love you have is real

Rollercoaster Love

Over the top
Shuddering car doors open
All aboard the rollercoaster ride
Lights shine all the fun of the fair
Tickets taken, excitement you cannot hide

No safety barrier can you close
As rickety train takes to the skies
Panicked, hold on for dear life
Until off the rails your ride flies

Detached, derailed, decoupled
Over the brow of looping track
Free falling without control or plan
The end; with no turning back

Then suddenly you ride the loop
The path meets you, up you soar
Head in the clouds, ecstatic
Joyous, in love, once more


Your voice can lift me
One call and I’m repaired
Your tone, your sound
Home before truths are aired
Profound and personal
You give your words so free
One call and I’m repaired
Your voice means love to me

Endless Seas

At ease
Endless seas

Hiding by Helping

Give and give and give
Help and help and help
It’s all I want to do
Maybe I can help you
I reach out and over-stretch
Love to the next poor wretch
But when I’m out and giving so
It’s hard for receiver to get to know
The man I am, the one in here
I’m stopping them getting near
The regular me, he tries less hard
He’s quieter and more relaxed by far
He’s vulnerable and exposed to them
He’s the one they end up with in the end

Two Peas

You and I are different
Two peas from altered pods
We start from dissimilar places
Dissimilar views, dissimilar gods
Physically, strong attraction
Mentally, vibrant interaction
Spiritually, we can coexist
Holistically, can we make a go of this?
I believe; if I can stay as me
If you can remain as you
Both Not tying to force opinion
Both Not trying to change a view
Then, there’s hope that two, can
Never one become
But be more than their separate selves
One plus one does three sum
