Loss


We all know loss, At some point in life. Weather its a pet, Brother or wife. They all hurt, In their unique way. And everyone has, Something to say. Life seems unfair, At least for a moment. But remember them, And hold them close. As if they never went away.

Stan Lee


You changed the world with your stories,
Changed the way movies are franchised,
Built universes not just characters,
And gave us all something to Marvel at.
Rest in piece Stan Lee (1922-2018)

Lest We Forget


Lest we forget the guns all stopped firing,
Lest we forget the drums all stopped banging,
Lest we forget the bells strike eleven,
Lest we forget the guys up in heaven,
Lest we forget all the lives that were lost,
Lest we forget all the shock that it caused,
Lest we forget the pain and the suffering,
Lest we forget the blood and the pain,
Lest we forget the poppy and it’s meaning,
Lest we forget the cause of it all,
Lest we forget this armistice day.

What I Would Give


You could recite python,
Without missing a beat,
Make me smile,
From cheek to cheek,
Put me in stitches,
For over a week,
And say you love me,
As big as the street,
Now what I would give,
To hear goodnight one last time.

You could make eggs,
With a runny yoke,
Find the right time,
To tell the perfect joke,
Tried to fix things,
Or just give them a poke,
And say I love you,
As big as you know,
Now what I would give,
To say goodnight one last time.

Hope


Hope,
Is not just a useless word,
It has endless meaning,
Freedom,
Is not an actless sentiment,
It keeps us breathing.
***
We all live in hope,
To live in freedom,
When freedom is taken for granted,
Hope is ignored,
And one by one,
People become,
Mindless hordes,
Living for tomorrow,
Saving for today,
Having nothing to their name.
***
Hope
Is not just a useless word,
It gives the world meaning,
Love,
Is a binding force,
That keeps hearts beating.
***
We all live in hope,
To find true love,
Which shows our blindness,
Love not just your partner,
With true love,
Love your neighbour,
Your father,
Your fellow humans,
With the same love,
And the world will be,
As it should.

Sorry For My Silence


We have been apart for so long,
Not spoken in word or song,
Haven’t said a word for years,
Not been at each others ears,
Time moves on day by day,
And we both work away,
Although we are silent,
We both know we aren’t absent,
One day we will sit down,
And chat for hours,
But for now,
Sorry for my silence,

One Last Goodbye


Friends come and go,
don’t I know,
But there comes a friend,
It hurts most to let go.
Still you know,
that they must go,
but this won’t stop the pain,
oh no.
Just yesterday you were part of me,
Now today you depart from me.
Only time will ever let me see,
If we will meet again.

But you have now,
Come and gone,
and this has hurt me so.
Goodbye dear friend,
But before you go,
there is one last thing you should know.

My years with you were not wasted.
And I know these tears are not been wasted.
Lets pray in time this pain will heal,
The pain of seeing you go.

So now I say
one last goodbye
Auf Wiedersehen
Old friend,
Goodbye!
