No Valentine’s Day

How many souls wake
On Valentines day
And wish the next
Twenty four hours go away
The focus on lovers
Plans to be open hearted
Depresses the lonely
Or where love has departed
Those people see gaps
A lack of love, card or cure
For their emptiness feeling
The pain they endure
For them no red roses
No chocolate treat
No dinner together
No-one for a secret meet.
They’re reminded they’re solo
With a partner vacancy
Their independence questioned
As spinster complacency.
You must find someone
To find your real purpose
Shout the masses and billboards
So loud that it hurts us.
If you wake on the fourteenth
Without significant others
Seemingly lonesome
Don’t hide under the covers
Go out and stand tall
Look your friends in the eye
You’re amazing, just you
You don’t need a guy
Or a girl or a partner
Unless that’s what you choose
And even then couples
Mix joy and the blues
So remember right now
Candied versions of love
Are not the reality
Cos the reality’s tough
You decide what you want
Be strong, sweet or sappy
Don’t let others decide
What you need to be happy

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

In Our Bond

Connect as one with me
Bound in thought and deed
Hold onto one another
In our bond, be freed
Talk about what you want
Released from all constraint
Trust that you’ll be heard
All thoughts can be explained
Believe in what we’ve got
Believe this might be true
It’s you I want to know
My heart is full of you

Try to be Happy

Some things in life are simple
Some out of your control
You can overthink it all you like
For a lot, you’ve not got a decision making role
But there are some steps more considered
That result in big forks in the road
Where a choice will lead to change
Build paths anew, make other paths explode
The pros and cons can be listed
You have to weigh the good and the bad
Consider the impacts on love ones
Maybe gamble to find the thing you never had
It’s not possible to see the outcome
You can see the damage to be caused
So such decisions need time
Not taken lightly, they cannot be forced.
In the midst of a dilemma
Overcome by concerns and fear
Sometimes the decisions are still simple
Follow you heart, be yourself, keep hope near
Be all you can be
Try to be happy
You will do the right thing.

More Than Anyone

Blessed with the joy of hope
When new heart feels all that is to come
Elated promise without constraint
Love you more than anyone
Perhaps an empty vacuous high
Like dreaming on the furthest star
This time substance might be there too
There’s a chance, this is right
Can’t put my hand on it
Can’t grasp why I feel what I feel
I’ve no basis to be in this emotive state
But this infatuation might be real

Physical Love

Hearts pulse
Pressure raised
Synchronised
To one phase
Flow and motion
Harmony
Coursing passion
Serenity
Sparks jump
Ecstatic bond
Physical love
Firm and strong
