Hip Hip Hooray to Valentines Day


So here we come to Valentines Day,
Hip hip hooray,
Callooh! Callay.
*
Share your love with that lucky person,
Keep them close,
And always listen.
*
Never forget who loves you most,
Who will be there,
For the rest of your life.
*
And if you haven’t found them yet,
Do not fret,
The could be closer than you think.

Valentines Kiss


Can I give a Valentines Hug,
And make you as snug as a bug,
When you feel down,
Just think of me,
And I will make you warm inside.
*
Can I give you a Valentine Kiss,
So tonight I’ll be the one you miss,
When you close your eyes,
To go to sleep,
Let it be me that stands in your dreams.
*
Can I wish you a Happy Valentines Day,
Unlike every Valentines Day before,
Let us spend the night together,
Let us just sleep,
And forever be in each others arms.

Valentines With You


Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Please let me spend,
Valentines day with you.

Matt(ch) Like You


You strike the light,
Make the heat,
Cause my heart to skip a beat.
***
Never has my mind,
Agreed more with my heart,
Than when we are not apart.
***
So please be my Matt(ch),
Make me your man,
And let our fire catch.

Why I Love the UK


I’ve felt the summer sun glow,
and the cold nip of snow,
I’ve heard the autumn deer call,
and watched the fawns crawl,
I’ve seen the rain fall,
***
and the rainbow tall,
I’ve smelt the honeydew in the air,
and smelt the cold winter air,
I’ve tasted the meat of the highlands,
and the fruits of the lowlands,
These things I say,
Remind me why,
I love the UK.

Lemons and Life


You are told in life,
“If life gives you lemons,
Make lemonade.”
But what about,
“Don’t take things from strangers,”
From this I say,
Life is a friend,
Greet it each day,
With a smile,
A hand,
And love it day-by-day.

Be In My Dreams Tonight


Today I want to spend,
All my time with you,
Just laying in your arms,
Lying next to you.
*
And when the stars,
Rise into the sky,
Just let us drift,
Into each others mind.
*
In each others dreams,
Let us spend our time,
Just living all the lives,
We may live together.
*
Though you may not,
Be next to me tonight,
I will live happy with you,
Being next to me in my dreams,

Mines is a Redhead


Some like the blonds,
Some like the brunets,
But I’m not like the rest of them,
I like the reds.
*
Some call them weird,
Some even scream,
Some call them beetroot,
But to they are my dream.
*
One day I will meet him,
And one day we will be,
In love and together,
Forever and ever.

Crime of Love


No one can see the future,
No one can see the time,
No one can see the crime.
*
To steal someone’s heart,
Lock it up tight,
Is considered beautiful,
Until something doesn’t go right.
*
Even through the time,
Even through the crime,
Even through the pain.
*
I’d still do it all again,
Give my heart up,
To be locked away,
Who wouldn’t want to be loved that way.

Give Me a Movie


Give me a movie,
Make it my life,
Why do they have,
All the happy ending,
And all the happily ever afters.
*
Make my life like a movie,
Why can’t it just be,
Drama, life and love,
Ending just as it should,
Just like a wish.
*
Life is not a movie,
And why should it be,
Love, work and life.
Ending as it will be,
Just as it should be.

My Heart and Your Heart as One


One day my friend,
Our hearts will bend,
But they wont be breaking,
They will just be changing.
*
It may be that we have just not met yet,
Or that our roads have crossed but not noticed it,
But come the day we meet,
I know my heart will bend and change.
*
You may not know me,
I want to know you,
When will we meet?
Only time will tell.
*
It may be that we have just not met yet,
Or that our roads have crossed but not noticed it,
But come the day we meet,
I know my heart will beat again.
*
Do you yearn for me,
The way I yearn for you,
Looking for just the right time,
And for you, the right one.
*
It may be that we have just not met yet,
Or that our roads have crossed but not noticed it,
But come the day we meet,
I know I will breath again.
*
The time may be today,
It may be tomorrow,
But the day we meet,
Will be the last tomorrow I seek.
*
It may be that we have just not met yet,
Or that our roads have crossed but not noticed it,
But come the day we meet,
I know my heart will not sleep again.
*
But come the day we meet,
I know my mind will not seek again.
*
But come the day we meet,
I know my hear and your heart will become one.

Mind Games


As this post is designed to heighten your awareness to your body I do warn you that you may notice things you never have before. Also some of these may not work on some of you as they don’t always work.

**************

I can be cruel,
Of that I’m sure,
You know you’re blinking.
***
On the other hand,
I can do things,
Like say,
Is that your tongue you are feeling?
***
I digress,
for I have noticed,
My own breathing,
In…..Out.
***
One that often gets me,
Is the ticking in my neck,
I know it’s just a vain,
But still It gets to me.
***
On we go,
Onto our feet,
Can you feel your cold toes?
***
Time to be,
A little mean,
Is that your nose,
That you can see.
***
Lets also pay,
A cruel respect,
To the itchy end,
Of your nose.
***
Or more-so,
I have known,
The itch to spread,
All down my hands.
***
With the odd mixed signals,
Of my fingers,
Neither hot nor cold,
Just slight tingles.
***
And with the beat,
Of your heart,
Your hands will shake.
***
One I must not leave behind,
Is that ringing noise inside,
You know its there,
You here it now.
***
But moving on,
Lick your lips,
And you shall feel the strange,
Tingling sensation.
***
I would apologise for subjecting you to this,
But I did warn you first,
Just think of tea and you’ll think of this,
Face, Eyes, Noes, Hands, Feet, Lunges, Tongue and Lips!

Better to Have Loved and Lost.


Just for a moment,
Of your time,
Sit with me,
Even for just a short time,
Perhaps we can,
Have a meal or see a movie.
***
Whilst I know,
I may never be yours,
Lets just,
Learn about each other.
I understand we,
Are just friends and,
May that last forever.
***
He’ll never know,
Exactly how I feel,
So I will just,
Keep dreaming,
Even if it is for nothing.
Tis better to have loved and lost,
Than never to have loved at all.

Acrostic Valentine Request


With it coming up to Valentine ’s Day,
I had someone in mind,
Little did you know but,
Like so many others,
I am too scared to tell you,
And maybe you will see this,
Maybe you would say yes…
***
Just someone I loved,
Once before,
He is amazing but I was,
Not what he was for,
***
Maybe this year you will say yes,
And maybe this year I will find love,
Come what may I will not stop,
Looking for the one to love,
Every day forever more.
Once again I find myself,
Doing something foolish.
***
For you I wrote this,
Rather difficult,
Acrostic poem,
So you would know who sent it,
Even without me saying my name so now I’m just,
Really hoping you’ll want to be my valentine.

You Will Never Know


You will never know,
Just how I feel,
Knowing you won’t be right there.
*
My heart with out you,
Is cold and dark,
My days are like hell.
*
Still we cannot be together,
Because it is just not meant to be so,.
*
May our futures apart be as good as together,
May this be so.
*
I see you online,
And I just cannot speak,
I am lost in thoughts of you.
*
Nights I sit and wonder,
Wouldn’t it be great,
If I was just sleeping next to you.
*
This valentine will be cold,
But I will not waste it on you.
*
My heart will one day be shared with another,
I just prey that day will come soon.

My Heart


I know my heart is huge,
And navigating it can be hard,
But if you have found yourself lost,
Just tell me and I will lend a hand,
Together we can map,
The intricate land,
Inside both our hearts,
And maybe one day in times to come,
Both our hearts can become one.

New Years Wish


I made a prayer for new year,
I made a dream for the spring,
That you would come and make me whole,
That you would fill my heart again,
Only time will tell if this is to be,
Will God let you come to me.
*
I hold my head high,
I keep my hope free,
One day you will come along
And sit beside me.

Guide Me Through


Take me from dark,
Right into the light,
Right through the day,
And into the night.
*
If love is the dark,
Then you are the light,
Taking me through the day,
And through the night.
*
Let me be in your arms,
That you may guide my way,
All through Valentines night,
And Valentines Day.

To An Old Crush


You stole my heart,
Heals my scars,
Made me see,
What you meant to me.
*
My morning thoughts would be filled with you,
My evening pondering wouldn’t be complete without you,
You never knew,
Did you?
*
I took the risk,
Told you of my heart,
I payed the price,
I don’t think I could pay again.
*
The days we spent together,
Were always a great delight,
But they also brought pain,
I would bare it just to be with you.
*
I know we couldn’t be,
There was never a chance,
But I still could dream,
And dream I did.
*
It took six years for me to tell you,
It will take six more to get over you,
My heart will always yearn for you,
My mind will learn to get over you.
*
So one last message I have to say,
Thank you for you loving friendship,
I wish you could have felt the same way,
But the heart is strange,
It wants what it wants,
Yours will never want the same as mine,
So I say goodbye with a smile,
A serge of pain,
Goodbye old friend,
Maybe will meet again some day.

I Learned to Love From You


My heart was hardened before I met you,
And you softened it up,
Made me see I deserved love,
Made me feel I could love.
*
But now you have gone and fallen silent,
And my heart is growing still,
What have I done to push you away?
Will I ever know?
*
You have stolen my heart,
And left me lonely,
will I ever know,
How I pushed you away?
*
Just come to me and talk to me,
And maybe we can see this through,
But if we can’t please don’t worry,
I learned to love from you!

Mountain Hare


There is a cat upon my garden wall,
I don’t know why,
A garden wall is there.
*
Why is that cat upon the wall?
I don’t know why,
I can’t help but stare.
*
Is the cat even there?
I have no proof,
But should I care?
*
Oh, there is no cat upon my wall,
It was just a mountain hare.

I’ll Watch Over You


(c) In Shade , The Caterpillar Shivered, 2019

You may not see me,
My presence may not be obvious,
It may feel like I’m not there,
But I’ll always watch over you.
***
In shade or in sun,
When you’re bored or having fun,
It may be blowing a storm,
And I’ll be watching over you.
***
As you sleep in your bed,
Resting your weary head,
Laying there dreaming of what’s ahead,
I’ll be watching over you.
***
And when the day is done,
The sun has been and gone,
There’s no-one left for fun,
I’ll watch over you.

With Friends


(c) Friends, The Caterpillar Shivered, 2019

There are days we walk alone,
Quiet with no-one to speak to,
They seem to go on-and-on,
Like an never ending issue.
***
Those days are few,
Thanks to you,
We walk together,
Whatever the weather.
***
There are days we feel lonely,
No-one here but our thoughts,
And we doubt ourselves loudly,
And judge ourselves lots.
***
But you come along,
And we sing a song,
I’m not alone,
When you are home.
***
There are days we are sad,
The world keeps us blue,
Everything seems so dark,
And all we need is a spark.
***
That spark is you,
A friend who shines through,
With you my sadness ends,
Everything is better with friends.

Big Bug BBQ


(c) Caterpillar BBQ, The Caterpillar Shivered, 2019

Every Sunday in the park,
We all get together,
Run around and play games,
And have fun with one another.
***
And as hunger sets in,
Out comes the grill,
And everyone has a thrill,
At the Big Bug BBQ.

What Could be Better Than Now?


You know that point,
That wonderful felling,
No matter how quick,
No matter how fleeting.
*
The sensation of happiness,
coated in uncertainty,
One of the few times,
It’s left to Heisenberg.
*
Where the blood moves quick,
But the brain is stumped,
All in an instant you know its correct,
But in that time its questioned.
*
How did I get here?
Where do I go now?
Will the path ever be clear?
From here on out?
*
But you push those questions off,
Just to bask in the joy of the moment,
The warmth of the happiness,
The joy of that instant,
But you always question,
*
What could be better than now???
