You Make The World Simple


The world is full of pain,
Fear, hate and war,
But with you here,
You make me forget it all.
***
Few things are impossible,
When we are together,
The world is forgotten,
And life is never better.
***
Every time I see you,
My heart turns to jelly,
And my every whim is,
Waiting for your command.
***
When the world gets busy,
And life gets confusing,
You sit with me and smile,
And everything is simple again.

Love For The Now


We wait for love,
Until we can wait no more,
We don’t look at what we’ve got,
Instead we look for what could be in store.
***
Life is simpler,
If you love what you have,
And don’t think about what you want,
But be content in the now and thank for the tomorrow.
***
Grab your friends,
Remind them you are there,
You will love them no matter what,
And will never be unreachable when they need you most.

Will Boys Just Be Boys


Will boys just be boys,
Or girls just be girls,
Or can’t people be people,
In our small little world.
***
Why do genders have to be genders,
And not girls be like boys,
Or boys be like girls,
Or just let people be people.
***
Can’t we look beyond the gender,
And see the person,
Who likes pink and Buffy,
But is still a straight man.
***
Care not for the sex,
And ignore the gender,
Stand shoulder to shoulder,
And never surrender.
***
We are all human,
The same under the skin,
Red blood flowing through,
The veins in all of you.
***
We are born the same,
Have the same needs,
Expel the same waste,
And leave the same way.
***
Love people as people,
That’s all we need,
Don’t act out of hate,
Respect, love and be great.

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???

Another Reminder Your Not There


When I see the news,
It reminds me,
When I visit the shops,
It reminds me,
Fathers day,
Another reminder,
Family packs,
Without the father,
Advertising emails,
For father and son,
Another sting,
Now that your gone.

We Once Said I Love You


You once said I love you without force,
Without pain, without remorse,
What we had was special,
But the bitterness came,
First it was just arguing,
Behind locked doors, then in public.
***
I once said I love you without wincing,
Without a sigh, without rolling my eyes,
What we had felt right,
But the cruelty came,
And we drifted apart,
Lived separately, Then moved apart.
***
We once said I love you without spite,
Without sarcasm, Without venom,
What we had worked,
But what finally came,
And finally ended it,
Was sharp words, and harsher jibes.

The 1967 Breakthrough


Am I dreaming,
Am I alone,
Could this be,
Could we have won,
Love is allowed,
Love is not wrong,
Society accepts us,
Society moves on,
There is still more to do,
There are those who protest,
Society will adapt,
Society has already,
Love has been accepted,
Love has no limits,
Could tomorrow be better,
Could we love free,
I am not alone,
I am not dreaming.
