Jasmine Tea

Take a glass of jasmine tea and sit with me a while

See the frown that’s on your face transform into a smile

Life can take us places that we never dreamed were true

When you need to feel at home I’ve time to share with you

Life is an adventure but when things are getting rough

Just remember gentle can be just strong as tough

Use your heart, engage your mind before you choose to fight

Just because someone is wrong does not give you the right

Child you are so lucky having everything you need

Choose the path of kindness and I know you will succeed

You will leave your teacher soon beneath the shady tree

But tell me of your hope and fears and drink some jasmine tea.

Roundabout

I went to work. I wandered home. My life was simplified.

For I was there and all alone with no one at my side.

The roundabout of love for me was not an easy ride.

No pity please! I can survive. I’m made of stronger stuff.

That playground’s made me realise that I can be so tough.

I have my health and sense of self, for now that is enough.

I see you look. I see the eyes. You want to ask me why.

Am I aloof, unpopular, or simply high and dry?

That sombre and unsmiling man who watches you pass by.

You turn around. I feel your gaze. You pierce me deep inside.

And all the pain and hurt that over years I’ve tried to hide,

You comprehend and validate then gently put aside.

You take my hand. You swing my heart. You turn my insides out.

You want to change my life and that you can, I have no doubt.

I go to work but simple has become more roundabout.

I took a little happy

And mixed it up with joy

My life became less lonely

With so much to enjoy

My mind was trained like body

Each smile a muscle flexed

And if you cut down sadness

Who knows what happens next

Those feelings simply choices

So exercise them well

Decide to create heaven

And that is where you’ll dwell

My life it isn’t perfect

I go both up and down

But if you just keep smiling

You might forget to frown

Corrugation

The rain on corrugation

The heat within the damp

A night without sedation

The poet and his lamp

The dawn is soon arising

Another broken day

These words please try for sizing

And walk with me a way

My night is ever sleepless

The rain it never stops

I scratch all of my secrets

Until the pen is dropped

The lovers’ tree

If happiness were flowering right here

And joy was thriving just outside your door

A sense content might permeate the air

And we would long for nothing any more

A garden is my life I plant and grow

The toil and labour not for me alone

For everything that I so gently sow

Enables me to offer you a home

So light your jasmine eyes upon my face

My honeysuckle’s clinging so divine

This Eden made on earth will be our place

For everything is shared and nothing mine

So come and plant yourself right next to me

And we will sit beneath the lovers’ tree
