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.

Love In 2017


The world has changed,
I’m engaged to be wed,
Fifty Years ago,
This would have made me,
Worse than dead,
Even twenty years ago,
I wouldn’t get wed,
Now I can love,
Have kids and get wed.

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,

I Am A Lucky Man


Very few people are as lucky as me,
I have my love at my side,
My family in my life,
And friends around,
***
I would be nothing without my man,
Although I don’t say it much,
I love him beyond all measure,
And I know he loves me,
***
Family is a strong thing,
And mine is no exception,
We stand with each other,
Through thick and thin,
***
And who would I be,
Without the friends who complete me,
Although there are few,
They are close and dear.
***
When I’m feeling down,
Or stressed at life,
I just remember,
There are those not as lucky as me.

I Dream


I dream as does any man,
I dream of life,
Of money,
But mostly of you.
***
Our lives together,
Lived as one,
Our dreams shared,
Every one,
***
A life together,
Of love and laughter,
Happiness and Hugs,
From now ever after.

2016 Christmas Countdown 4 : Keep Me Warm


The cold is back this year, 
And I have you here, 
Stay with me the night, 
Keep me warm from the cold. 
*** 
Please stay with me, 
And never leave me, 
Stay with me this winter, 
Stay with me forever. 
*** 
Please don’t just be a christmas dream, 
Say you will never leave me, 
Kiss me and take me tonight, 
And cuddle with me through the night. 
*** 
I will keep you warm, 
And never let the cold get you, 
If you will just be mine, 
I will never leave to be lonely.
