You are the sunshine - after the dark The dark that had stayed so long in my mind - Savaged by relentless lies and gilded fakery Everywhere I look - your image remains in my minds eye I feel, I breath, I exist - able to cope Hand me your love and I will hand you the world - but first I will wash it in soap With you I feel so alive, my time on earth is well spent I'm in control, taking the wheel for the long drive ahead You reward my love - with precious heart Something of which I was starved You are my candle and I hold the match And once lit We are to each other bound Your light may burn down - but your soul flame lays low waiting for my gaze I thought our chance had gone, lost Your light came to me again with your youthful grin and disarming chat If all our days are spent, in the rich garden of love Then in my old age the regrets will be few And I will be glad that I met my beautiful you 04.03.96 For L. C. Flaxton
Under an iron grey sky
I first thought of it –
The image flew straight into my mind
I felt the passion sting strong –
And my heart broke raw from it
So many words to say
Now that you’ve drifted into shadow
However much I look –
I can’t make you stay
You heart took the road from it –
Thinking – it just wants my time
It bores me senseless – as I lose my mind
I can’t control how I lost your smile
Your superficial gaze induce
Daily thoughts that run a minute mile
She’s captured you –
In the in between moments
As I watch you both fall
Just for the choke of it –
I was hidden – the ghost of it
I laugh & cry at myself –
Oh – the torment of it
I catch my image –
As I try to catch your drift
But watch you slowly sink into her eyes
I see it all and the more I see
The heart it grieves –
All for the heart of it
Lost in the moment of it
Caught in the web of it –
All before the love of it dies
And I forget that love lived –
Disguised as beautiful lies
Lament for Tiddy
He sings a soulful song – so still each night he sings on hallowed ground
The song so soft and gentle like his nature – the souls rejoice to the low sweetness of sound
Nightly the song hangs like a mist in the ether – and can be heard with ears a listening – and always heard with hearts a grieving
Of all the roads he travelled – his heart belonged at home
Through the green glens of Antrim – across the way to the fields of Tyrone
His journeys end lays at the edge of the Colebrooke river – where his heart – his young heart roamed
As the wind carries his song across to the Derryveagh Mountains and beyond
His heart it meets the ocean – with each beat contained oceans of love inside
His gentle song becomes one with the Angels – whose golden trumpets adorn

Can you hear me breathing
As I gather
Dust amongst the days?
Can you hear me dreaming?
Yeah, I swear
My thoughts, they can be heard.
Can you see me now,
Can you feel me bleeding?
It’s your face that haunts me every single night.
Can you see me now,
Can you feel me living?
We’ve so much left to learn.
Give a bit of love, girl.
Show a bit of love,
And you will see it flooding in return
