When will it end?


Release me from this debt
Is there no relief
No end to clasping ways

It is with much regret
Just when will it stop
Paying you all my days

Borrowed money I was poor
I'll still be owing
When in my pauper's grave

Loan seemed such a small thing
But looking forward
to hear what pastor says

Just realised what I said
'Coz then I'll be dead
And not care anyways

Moon clouds her face


I still walk the same path
You holding my hand
And smiling you laugh
Along by the mere
Moon rising for us

See its light in your eyes
As we sit on a log
Then kiss your sweet face
You hum with delight
Moon winking at us

Then the owls in the trees
Hoot as they agree
The fish they do plop
You bare all for me
Moon clouds her face

I still recall those days
Teen love lasts not long
But still hold you close
In this my sad mind
Moon can't be seen

Never thought about it


Never thought about empowerment
Until my girl and I got married
And then I realized what it meant

Once single and without one care
Such thoughts had never crossed my mind
Now I had great burdens to bear

For now I was responsible
For a wife and quite a lot more
But she was quite irresistable

The rent, the chores, feeding the cat
Lock the doors, help with washing up
Long gone days I thought nought of that

Before a lad playing the game
Now have wife with me all the time
I've grown up and she has my name

Responsibility is great
What strength it's given both of us
She really is the best of mates

Her sound of silence


There is something quite erotic
Dining your girl by candle light
Flames flickering in her green eyes
And hearing her seductive sighs
As she looks all around the walls 
Then back to you she shines her eyes
As clearly she admires your choice
Of room for your overture of love
Those wicked words whilst holding hands
To sanction your life together
Painting pictures of love and fun
Far into the future....she listens
Wondering if to shrink away
Or grasp the offer without complaint
But then your heart falls with the sound
Of silence as she shakes her head

It was raining


Like a three act play
Writing the words that I speak
Changing my garments

Though it was raining
Thought I'd walk along the beach
To wave to the sea

I love the silence
Just the patter of raindrops
And swish of the tide

Small patch of blue sky
Gave sun a chance to beam goodbye
Bowing out sadly

How I love this Earth
At any time of the year
It fires up my soul

Walking the forest
Or climbing hills and mountains
Thus finding myself

Rose Claire


I rose up one morning 
With my eyes full of glee
So thought I'd take a walk
To see what I could see

Do forgive me sweet girls
I have a roving eye
Sat in a rose garden
To see what I could spy

I took some old breadcrumbs
To feed the birds down there
And they came pretty soon
Plus girl with raven hair

Not long before we talked
Her name was Rose Claire
She loved that birds came close
Pecking crumbs without care

"Rose" I asked, she looked up
Her eyes shone beautifully 
I rose up then kneeled down
"Please with you marry me?"

Her soft hand touched my cheek
Fingers close to my lips
I kissed them while I could
Those sensuous fingertips

I wonder...


I wonder how long I will live?
Now my brain is much like a sieve
Will I live in a comatose state?
Sadly being force fed
Lying in hospital bed

Will I keep writing useless rhyme?
Just to pass away my time
Will I wander round retirement home?
Chatting to garden gnomes
Because they are all alone

Will they find me watching TV?
Dunking biscuits in my tea
Trusty notepad at my side
Happy in my later years
Writing tales of joy and tears

...you can count on it!
