Thank you all,

Of reading my attempt,
To spread Christmas cheer,

Will be new year,
So please keep reading,
The last countdown here.
***
All that’s left,
Is for me to say,
Merry Christmas to you,
Happy New Year on the way.

24. Sweet Old Saint Nic


He’s climbing in your window,
Laying your presents out,
Bringing joy to your house,
And not waking your kids up,
He’s made his list,
And he has checked it twice,
He knows who is naughty,
And who has been nice,
Here comes Saint Nic,
All quiet and sweet,
Sneaking around,
While everyone sleeps.

9. Happy Hanukkah


It’s Hanukkah,
And I know what I wanna da’
It’s a time for remembrance,
It’s a time for enlightenment.
***
Even if you don’t observe it,
We have all heard it,
And so I raise this to everyone,
Have a happy Hanukkah.

8. Christmas Shop


Chop Chop,
Time to shop,
Christmas is on the way,
***
Quick Quick,
Get your pick,
For the holiday,
***
Run Run,
Get it done,
Don’t let it slip away.

This Old Heart of Mine


Given the world,
I would give it away,
Just to spend my time,
Laying next to you each day.

*

I have had many days to myself,
And not one of them compares,
To a single hour with you.

**

But you don’t see me,
And although I may be a young guy,
My heart is old and waiting for you,
I just want to love you in the old fashioned way,
Long nights laying together,
Just in each others company.

**

Life in my mind,
Seemed easier before,
But now I spend every day,
Just longing for you to be with me.

*

What I would give for just a kiss,
To feel your lips on mine,
And the warmth of your breath,

**

But you don’t see me,
And I am starting to think,
You never will,
My heart will forever long for yours
But it knows the drill,
Smile and move on like before.

*

But you don’t see me,
And although I may be a young guy,
My heart is old and waiting for you,
I just want to love you in the old fashioned way,
Long nights laying together,
Just in each others company.

*

Maybe one day you will see me,
But until then I must wait,
And live tomorrow as another day.

Clouds


I look below the plane,
And then blankets roll over the land,
The long never ending see of white,
Like a warm coat for the earth,
And like something in a dream.

I Ken Fit


I ken fit,
A fine lass said,
Time is wasted at work,
Until you are dead.
***
I kin fit,
The wise man said,
Enjoy your work,
And you’ll live instead.
***
I ken fit,
My mam once said,
Noting in life will stop you,
Unless you let it.
***
I ken fit,
My old man said,
Find your love,
Don’t let others choose for you.
***
I ken fit,
The world says,
We are all human,
Why do we hurt each other.
***
You ken fit,
Dunny control others,
Dunny let other control you,
And above all,
Dunny let others take control.
