The rain is coming soon

To wash away the dust

And all will be renewed

And once again I’ll trust

The dry was in my mouth

It took away my voice

But when the river floods

Again I’ll state my choice

So now I sit and wait

I watch for heavy cloud

The past must be destroyed

Then future is allowed

The coming storm will break

And I will leave the shell

And in the fresh I’ll start

My wander to the well


The memory

In difference we are similar

Unique is commonplace

But I remember all of you

How time had lined your face

The moment was an age ago

But memory is fresh

The conversation to and fro

The thoughts allowed to mesh

We passed and life it parted us

We both have travelled far

And yet I feel you here with me

And I am where you are

In distance we are ever close

I feel your eyes meet mine

And though each moment is unique

We’re never lost in time


Empty street is where I’m driving

Destination still unknown

Traffic light on path less taken

Far away and yet I’m home

I remember life before was

Roundabout and indirect

So I ran and left you standing

Taking just my self respect

Many ask me how I manage

Solitary on my way

But no longer in confinement

Freedom has a price to pay

Onward journey I’m departing

Ever moving never still

Won’t be numbed in colder comfort

Driven by an iron will


Falling flowers

Scatter on the grass

Trembling bowers

Autumn comes to pass

Spring remembered

Winter overdue

Soon dismembered

Nothing ever new

Summer lightened

Bright the fleeting days

Senses heightened

Separating ways

Oh my lover

Take a different route

Then discover

Blossom comes to fruit


I’m half way to the moon and back

I’m lost in outer space

I’m running till I lose myself

And find a better place

I’m lone but I am not alone

I have a dream to hold

But it was not to be with you

And so I leave the fold

I see you do not understand

Which only proves me right

For you are scared of dark

I am a creature of the night

I don’t think I am coming back

So far can be my home

My baby has been laid to rest

But I was born to roam
