1. The First Chocolate


It’s that first crisp morning,
When you sneak out of bed,
Head down the stairs,
Grab your calendar,
And hear that door tear,
underneath is that sweetest of treats,
The first seasons chocolate,
There for you to eat.

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.

London From Above


From above the london lights,
Shine orange, yellow and white.
The trains like worms,
Go underground,
Only to come up,
On the other side of town. 
Everyone is busy,
In their own little world.
No-one says hi,
Or whispers a word.
And I judge them here,
From my ivory tower.
Up high in the clouds,
Above the towers.
They don’t know I’m here,
Looking down on them.
As I climb higher,
In my roll of tin.
London is a blur,
Of lights on the ground.
Goodbye London,
And your mystical underground.

0. Christmas Countdown


It’s that time again,
To ring it in,
Spread the cheer,
And mark the end of the year.
***
Get your elf shoes on,
The tree out,
Dust off the lights,
And get excited.
***
Return to here,
On December the 1st,
For a daily poem,
Like a chocolate in a calendar.

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.
