Homophone Entry

He saw with sore eyes, a belle by a bell
With a smile he couldn’t resist.
He wondered should they wander and they rested a while
Ensuring they missed the mist.

Good genes in good jeans, he told himself
As he ushered her into his home.
The maid made food and they ate at eight
And finally they were alone.

He wanted her more as they gazed at the moor
Then he saw he was terribly wrong.
Who’d have guessed that his guest , that he met out side
Of the Nave was a knave all along…

I never went away

My love wraps round you while you sleep
My soul will keep you warm
I fill your heart I will stay right here
Until you wake at dawn

You can't see but I never left you
I'm that force that you cannot explain
I hold your hand while you weep at night
I'm here and I feel your pain

My love for you cannot be broken
Our souls are forever entwined
Like our fingers once were when you saw me still
My love for you stayed behind

You don't hear but I sing to you softly
You don't see but I wait at your door
I walked with you then and I walk with you still
I will wait til you need me no more.

I promised I would never leave you
Don't think I went back on my vow
I loved you every moment
And I still love you now.

My love wraps round you while you sleep
My soul will keep you warm
I fill your heart I will stay right here
Until you wake at dawn

Sweet Pea

Your wispy hair that frames your face
Your smile so divine;
Those sparkling eyes, that hearty laugh
I can’t believe you’re mine.

One deep dimple on your cheek
The sweetest sounding voice;
My best friend, my little girl
You make my heart rejoice.

I want to hold you all the time
And whisper in your ear;
You are my heart, you are my soul
I always want you here.

One More Hour

If you could give me an hour
I'd try to remember your smile
So that when it was dark and I was alone
My heart would be whole for a while

If you could give me an hour
Id hold you, remember your touch
So when it was dark and I was alone
My soul wouldn't hurt quite as much

If you could give me an hour
I'd listen and hear your sweet voice
So that when it was dark and I was alone
My ears would hear and rejoice

If you could give me an hour
I would study your beautiful eyes
So that when it was dark and I was alone
Your smile would light up the skies

If you could give me an hour
I'd soak up each second together
So that when it was dark and I was alone
Id pretend you were here forever

My Boy

I came alive the moment  I met you
I don't know how I breathed before
You made my life complete dear
And I'll break when you walk out the door.
My boy.

You are special beyond comprehension
So perfect you can't understand
I'll be eternally grateful knowing
You were mine and you held my hand
My boy.

I would die for you dear in a heartbeat
You give more than you can ever know
Such a beautiful soul, my heart swells with pride,
As I stand back and I watch how you grow.
My boy.

Tired my dear, I have watched you sleep
I have cried as I stroked your face
I'll blink and I will be without you
Not here in my happiest place.
My boy.

Live life and love and be happy
Safe in the comfort and joy
Of knowing I will always be waiting
For you my dear, my dear boy.
My boy.

Ode to Amsterdam

They ventured in to Amsterdam to have a little break.
Alas it all went very wrong when they tried a slice of cake.
Before that fateful moment it had all gone very well,
Dinners, walks and seeing sights – and then they really fell.

They stopped to have a bite to eat at a lovely little place.
The men arrived with plates of cake which the locals know as ‘space’
They all felt fine and ventured home to relax and then get dressed.
Yet to know that within an hour they’d be laughing or depressed.

As half the group began to laugh at every little thing,
For the other two events had turned into a very different spin.
As one crawled along the cold hard floor awaiting impending doom,
The other was moving furiously to every little tune.

After an eternity of crippling fear – the paranoid one felt hardy,
She decided to brave the outside world so donned her favourite cardy.
Like a nervous schizophrenic she edged into the bar,
Looking for her other friends – she didn’t have to look that far.

The group had fallen victim to those cakes and cigarettes,
They were laughing in the corner at the one who’d caught tourettes.
Convinced a worm was in his head he jerked and drummed the table,
The paranoid one had tried to laugh but she really wasn’t able.

Her mouth fused shut and her heart beat fast but the worst was yet to follow
Panic struck when she tried to drink but had forgotten how to swallow.
The giggly ones just kept giggling and the dancing one drummed to the beat
He nearly cried when he went to stand up and the moves had spread to his feet.

Common sense set in as they rose from their seats and dancing boy wiggled his hips,
The only solution to calm him down was to go and get him some chips.
They found a nice place and sat themselves down and somehow they ordered some steak.
Then the dancing one got stuck in the kitchen, oh why did they eat so much cake.

The food arrived but their mouths were too dry and the forks were too heavy to lift
They decided to leave and get some fresh air and wait for the madness to shift.
They stumbled on the seediest street where drug dealers spoke in their ear,
They were achy and twitching and shaky, from the cake and the cold and the fear.

They gave up and went back and tucked up warm in bed and laughed at the terrible night.
2 laughers a dancer and a paranoid one – what a ridiculous sight.
Thankfully soon it was over and everything turned out fine,
But a lesson was learnt in old Amsterdam and next time they’ll stick to the wine.

Home

A thousand pictures adorn the walls
In a house where the memories remain
If I could make those picture come alive
We would dance and dance again.

Laughter stains the dim lit walls
Music still rings in the air
Quieter now, the feeling still stays
Of the days when there wasn’t a care.

The noisy bustle still hangs in the room
From the days when we all stopped by
And we drank and we laughed, we talked and we danced
Til the moon set high in the sky.

Sun flickers over the garden,
Where we splashed and we played in the rain
Emptier now, Quieter now
In the house where the memories remain.

Never Change

Some time ago, when you were small

I tried to show  you how to be

But you looked at me and smiled and said

‘I just want to be like me’.

 

What judicious words, from one so small

It stilled me to my core

And from then on there you were just you

And I questioned it no more.

 

When others laughed  and others stared

You walked off from the crowd

You sympathised, you loved and cared

You spoke your thoughts out loud.

 

When people mocked, when people eyed

You held your head up high

When they told you to be different

You always questioned why.

 

So if some one asks, a mate perhaps

To change your point of view

You are perfect just the way you are

Please always be like you.

Worlds End

The muted smiles, the solemn eyes
Shifting in their chairs
No one quite knows what to say
Death caught us unawares.

A cruel miscalculation
Death came for you too soon
We thought we were invincible
But no one is immune

The cars outside keep driving
The birds are full of song
Why does the world seem to imply
Its trivial you are gone

No mention on the evening news
No notice on the wall
Does the world not  recognise
You were ever here at all

You were not incidental
This was a tragedy
To the world you were just a person
But you were the world to me

Dad

You said you would be with me always
You said even when I was grown
You said that you’d always protect me
You lied and you left me alone.

You said I could count on you always
You said you’d be there any day
You said I would not be without you
You lied and you went away.

You said that you’d help make me smile
You said my life wouldn’t be black
You said that we’d always be happy
You lied and you never came back.

You said that you’d love me forever
You said that you had from the start
You said that you would never hurt me
You lied and you broke my heart.
