Come to me when the night is lonely
And dream of faraway places
Where teardrops dry in the sun.
Allow the cool gentle breeze of twilight time
To penetrate the corners of your mind
And blow away bad memories forever.
Then you can become free from
The dark lingering clouds of sadness
That prevents you from living your life,
With the true happiness
That you so rightly deserve.
Keep moving on towards what you really want and I will be there waiting for you.
“There are occasions when it pays better to fight and be beaten than not to fight at all.”
George Orwell, Homage to Catalonia
We were young, so was the night,
We were looking for fun and ladies bright.
We went for a drink and had a few,
Then went to the dancing, there was a queue.
We met two nice ladies who were on holiday.
We joined up with them and danced the night away.
They invited as back to their apartment near the shore,
We kissed and talked and kissed some more.
When the dawn came we all felt good,
We listened to music on the radio, still in a good mood.
On the news it said a famous rock star had died,
We found it hard to believe and thought they had lied.
As we walked along the shore road heading for home
This was our first experience of denial and accepting what had gone.
It was true that our beloved rock star had prematurely departed.
But it was cushioned by the feelings of a new relationship started.
Many years later we spoke about that night,
Fondly remembering and cherishing our delight.
Sometimes romantic events are easier to remember,
When they coincide with historical events on the calendar.

You floated into my life
On a gentle breeze
And caressed my soul,
I hoped you would never leave.
You took me to places
High up in the clouds,
I wanted it to last forever
And never come down.
When I awoke in the morning
You looked so beautiful as you slept,
A whole day ahead with you,
I was so happy that we had met.
Every day would be glowing
With plenty of sunshine above,
As we danced the dance
Of the Young And In Love.
Life is never a straight road
And there is no sun without rain,
It would not be long before
My happiness turned to pain.
When the speeding car hit you
On the corner of the bend,
I knew that everything we had
Without any doubt, could only end.
Many moons have waxed and waned
And the tides still wash up on the shore,
Life continues, although a bit differently,
There is no option but to carry on as before.
Those that you have loved never completely leave you; they live on in your heart and soul forever.
