wondrous

a wondrous kind of beauty, she
would lounge around in front of me
and whisper words of love and life
and how someday she’d be my wife
oh how her beauty caught my eye
I watched her as the days flew by
and silly as it sometimes seems
I bought into her pretty dreams
but in the end just as I feared
she broke my heart and disappeared

run

I can see where you are going
and with whom and how and why
but I cannot go there with you
any more than I can fly
I must hold myself together
I must plan each careful move
for the song will be a nonsense
if the needle skips the groove
and though I love you madly
and my heart is in your hands
there’s no way on this world that
I could obey your soft commands.
so I’ll wave to you in passing
and sing out mournful songs
as the day bleeds into night time
and I total up our wrongs
was it me that held you back love
was it you that killed my pride
did I ever give you reason
to feel the need to hide
is there nothing I can give you
though it costs the moon and sun
that will bring you back to me when
your heart is saying run

for WRr and family

the grief that I now feel is hereditary
I know that you too felt it in the past
but one of things I learnt from you in growing
is that like everything, this too won’t last
I know someday that memory will comfort
instead of causing me to stop and cry
until then I’ll hold myself together
and promise that my love will never die
and when at last it’s my turn to be leaving
I hope my loved ones will not feel such pain
for ahead of us I know there will be waiting
the meadow where we’ll meet up once again

love story

I loved him when the sun stood high
and when the moon was in the sky
I loved him with a love so true
I cannot speak its depth to you
I loved him when he held me tight
he was my heart and my delight
I loved him with a passion’s flame
oh you would have done just the same
I loved him more with every breath
and swore I’d love him ’til my death
I loved him so the stories say
but that was on another day

memory

shadows take us haunting when the moon is in your eyes
and sad and sallow creatures beguile us with their lies
who would take a summer’s night and hold it in their hand
would find the weird and wonderful lie far beyond command

and summer love is you and I and all the myriad here
dressed in dark disguises and caparisoned with fear
we feel the night time flowing though we have no hope to hold
our souls have been discarded and our futures have been sold

but come with me my pretty one and rest your weary bones
upon a bed of marble a pillow made of stones
we’ll play no more as dilettantes the time for that has gone
the world welcomes disaster though our memory lingers on

for CMJ and family

time takes its share and much much more
and leaves the rest to grieve
for all the things that never were
and the love that had to leave

a love we held so close at hand
that served to light the way
through broken dreams and broken hearts
the rigours of the day

and how I yearn to feel the past
to talk with you once more
reclaim the balance we once had
be as we were before

yet nothing can be as it was
when all we had was new
there can be nothing this I know
to take the place of you

but time can not be held in spite
despite its cruelest blow
one day we’ll meet again to bring
a surcease to our woe

doubt

I couldn’t be what you wanted of me
I couldn’t follow the thread
all I could do was trail after you
and pretend to myself I was dead

there were times I would rail and my cornering fail
as I danced to the music you played
and each little flaw was a foot in the door
another false step I had made

yet what is a man if he has not a plan
and what good is love to a jerk
when everything’s lost at too high a cost
and nothing he tries seems to work

lord you could ask or take me to task
why did I let it begin
when each little word never meant to be heard
would scratch like a nail on my skin

so here I will stay as my life slides away
and all that is left is my pain
and though I cry out there can be no doubt
I would do it all over again

big bang

I could grieve alone forever at the parting of our ways
or lift you up to heaven on a tide of fulsome praise
I could turn the world around you to keep you in the light
and all I ask is just one kiss to see me through this night

I could share with you the secrets that are buried in my past
tear the shackles from you to set you free at last
love you ’til the sun burns out and the universe has gone
and then kickstart another so my love for you lives on
