Sometimes

 

Sometimes
I drift in the air
a thousand feet up high

Sometimes
I don't even see a sky
as life goes by

Sometimes
I want to be carried
by the windy moon

as sometimes
I think it'll all be over soon

but most times
I don't think I deserve myself to be
the person that I long is me

 

 

Absolutely

 

If I were to compare thee

to a summers day

I would quote

all which follows

verbatim

and conclude that

as long as I shall breathe

or my eyes can see

so long lives this

and shall live forth

if not only

in my soul and memory

I wish my life with thee

for thou art the one

who gave thee to me

unquestionably

 

 

I should not want what I haven’t got

 

Fear of consequence

still chose to

give it up

 

World turns

upside down

inside out

but it turns

 

Pain and sadness,

another emotional scar

on the tree of life

 

Hounded by

the unstable mind

which shall refuse acceptance

of the undeniable truth

for a while

 

If you would

continue to live a lie

you would never know

how good life could be

on the other side

of you

 

be passionate

be brave

be the best you

can be

 

then, you see

you’re on your way

to gain

 

love ad infinitum

 

 

Dad


Today

you said something

so beautiful and true

wish I could convey

why I stay here

far away

missing out

from afar seeing you

getting old and gray

 

Cheerful and bright,

calm and funny

sometimes dull

Shrunken in height,

little head of wool

and although in

your darkened world

you know which way to pull

still reaching for the light

 

Introvert to some

but full of willing

and ill health

missing mum

I hear it all

through the wire

when we share our

deep and simple thoughts

the ones we keep schtum

and all life’s desire

 

I am glad

They chose you

to stay around

a little longer dad

you were nearly gone

but you belong

and learnt to cope

on your own

not doing bad

at it myself

 

 

Sense & sensibility

 

Desire

admire

and intrigue

 

some creatures

have no features

too scared

to take a leap

 

follow your senses

and lose them

listen to your heart

and follow

 

for you have already

chosen

 

just not woken up

to the fact

of fate

 

until perhaps

it’ll be too late
