Homeward bound

Standard

The half told tale

is getting pale,

setting sail…

I’m left stranded

 

Your uncertain smile

is taking a while

to cover these miles…

I come away empty handed

 

My lonely heart,

weary from the start,

is done playing its part…

I have finally landed.

Pretend games

Standard

I’ve thought of a game,
will you play with me?
Just close your eyes,
come away with me

This is how
all tales are spun
Lets pretend
we’re on the run
Escape into
the wild unknown,
fly where
no birds have flown

Up, up and over
the hills we go,
coming down’s easy,
we just slide through the snow.
There’s no one watching,
lets run real wild
Isn’t this great,
being a child?

There’s a stream up ahead,
lets splash right in,
pretend its summer
and enjoy a cool swim
Time flies so quick,
when you’re having fun
What a marvellous sight,
this setting sun!

And then, suddenly,
in the blink of eye…
I trip,
you fumble,
reach out,
but i tumble,
try to hold on
to my thoughts,
but now they’re
all jumbled…

The moment’s gone
the game is through
I loved our lil adventure
I hope you did too!

A golden sunset

Standard

Its been a glorius summer

Wouldn’t you say so, my love?

 

I can never forget

the soft summer sky,

You and I

floating on the velvet breeze

flitting from tree to tree

in that playful way

of ours.

Don’t you remember

chasing the sun?

flying too close,

getting burned

and then turning to chase

each other instead.

Losing ourselves

in the moment.

 

We painted a pretty picture

didn’t we?

As we sailed across the speckled sky

into the golden sunset

joined together

wing-to-wing.

My heart still sings

when I think of it.

 

Now the winter has begun

and it promises to be

an especially cold one.

But I’m not scared

as long as I’m with you

 

So lets turn up our feet

to dry, lie

low

We may not still be here

when the summer dawns anew

but thats ok too

I know I’ve got many more lifetimes

and summers

left with you.
