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.
