17. Have You Got


Have you got your Christmas turkey,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
All the stuffing and the trimming,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
***
It’s all sitting in the freezer.
Fa la la, la la la, la la la.
Waiting for the Christmas morning.
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
***
Kids excited for the presents,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
And everyone has gifts to share,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
***
Lets all sing in joy together,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
And forget about the weather,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.

14. Monkey Day


Hayhay todays a good day,
Welcome to the day,
Where monkey business is ok,
December the 14th,
Is Monkey Day.
***
get out of the house,
And play in the snow,
Or if there is none,
Just have some fun,
For today is the one day a year,
It ok to make light and merry,
And be a little monkey.

12. Christmas Round The World


The Aussies have their barbecues,
The Eskimos build their igloos,
The Scots grab their sleds,
And the bears go to bed.
***
Each corner of the earth,
Has it’s own ways to go,
Whether that’s sunny,
Or temperatures subzero.
***
One thing we all share,
Is spreading cheer,
And sharing what we have,
With those who do not.

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.

Words


Words can hurt,
Words can break,
Words can mend,
Words can make,
Words are strong,
Words are weak,
Words are soft,
Words are bleak,
Words don’t lie,
Words don’t cheat,
Words don’t sing,
Words don’t speak,
Words shouldn’t sting,
Words shouldn’t bite,
Words shouldn’t be wrong,
Words shouldn’t be right,
Words are the messenger,
The message, the point,
Words are more powerful,
Than sword or arrow point,
Words speak volumes,
But say very little,
Words can portray,
But also betray,
Words can inform,
But as easily deform,
Choose your words carefully,
Judge every one,
And remember that emotion,
Is linked to each and every one.

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.
