Keep It Real

Don’t ignore the pain

Allow the hurt to be

Suffer and you gain

Endure the misery

Pain is part of life

Allow yourself to live

Learn from what you get

To heal is to forgive

Everything we are

It all can be a gift

Dropping from a star

Can show you how to lift

Hurt but I will heal

Accepting this is real


Sea and Sky

We’re sitting in the safety of the dark

And by my side he tells about his life

His smile illuminates each sad remark

He’s positive in spite of all the strife

Together in the park we’re on a date

We sit almost too close and talk of much

And all his words within me resonate

I can’t believe how deeply he can touch

He smiles again but this is just for me

And in return I look into his eyes

If his are like a deep unending sea

Then mine are bluer than the summer skies

On far horizons meet the sea and sky

And no one feels their touch but he and I

Life is Done

Make the change you want to see

Be the best that you can be

Live for now and worry less

Tidy up don’t leave a mess

Think of others you can aid

Make sure debts are fully paid

Study hard as through you go

Learning helps us all to grow

Smile more often have a laugh

Light some candles for your bath

Share with others frequently

Give your love to all you see

Count your blessings one by one

Then leave in peace when life is done

Not Everyday

Every day he's walking on his own
Every day he's always by himself
Every day he's stepping out from home
Every day he's not yet on the shelf
Every day he's smiling as he walks
Every day he's looking all about
Every day he's silent never talks
Every day he's happy to be out
If one day he didn't reappear
If one day he didn't smile at you
If one day you'll wish he was still here
Let this be the day for something new
Everyday you're walking by his side
Every day a conversation new
Every day your routines coincide
Every day's less lonely when there's two


Oh my lover I am lost for words
The everything you give to me and more 
I could total up and make list
But you are not a man who’s keeping score
Winner for I put my trust in you
But you have loved me even I’m lost
Say that we are equal and well matched
And on your heart my name you have embossed
Love with you was never wild and loose
An all in order well considered ride
And every day I know that when I wake
You’ll be the man who’s always by my side
Lost for words and yet I want to say
I love you more with every passing day


Never chosen
Always last
Never asked
Made me bitter
You’re so sweet
Got the whole world
At your feet 
Never smiling
Wear a frown
You ascend as
I fall down 
Wish that I was
Light and gay
Bruised and battered
Born this way
See you staring
Clouded eyes
Hand of friendship
Help me rise
Different people
Human kind
Help your neighbour
Love is blind
I was chosen
Only one
Turned my face to
See the sun
