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

Samaritan

Never chosen
Always last
Uninvited
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

The Earth Isn’t Flat

Don’t know where I’m going to and not sure where I’m at
I was three dimensions but my world has fallen flat
Could you be my air supply and fill my life with hope
Feel that I am drowning and I really need a rope

Strangely know upon your kindness I can now depend
Wonderful beginnings have replaced the bitter end Everything is better when we find someone to share
Empty space so unfulfilled now you are resting there

Join the human race and find yourself immersed in bliss
Fellow man is beautiful if you remember this
Vulnerable is when we are most open to receive
Take the hand that’s offered it might be just what you need

Round my world is spinning velvet night to silken morn
Thankfully embrace the gentle kindness in the dawn
