You think you may have cracked it, But then you’re back to square one, It’s feels such a letdown And you wonder what can be done. Back to the drawing board Hoping the answer will come, To the way forward or not It takes more than dedication Or have you just lost the plot.
You say it’s now or never The opportunity is there to take, But when push comes to shove It seems to be far too late. Back to the grindstone Looking for ways to improve, But it takes more than you’ve got, And then it’s too late to stop, Or have you just lost the plot.
You might wish for dreams To be fulfilled tomorrow or today, So persistence is the key In making it go your way. Back to the drawing board With nothing now to lose, You may soon face the drop With what you have to choose Or have you just lost the plot.
If You Love Like Me.
From the moment we met Until the present day, I have looked and seen But still I cannot say. Although you are here And may always be, Why do I doubt If you love like me?
From the moment I saw you And still even today, I am under your spell And feel happy that way. Although you say it Sometimes frequently, How do I know If you love like me?
Through good and bad Until my dying day, I will always be there But will you stay? Although I want you Even in melancholy Why do I fear If you love like me?
From now into the future Until the end of time I am yours completely But are you really mine? Although I can see it Can it truly be? Will I ever be sure If you love like me?
Please go away And leave me now in peace, You may dig in your claws But you must now release. Allow me to move on Before it’s much too late, Or else soon I’m gone Then what can you take.
You flood me like a river, Yearn to steal my soul, You flow through my blood stream Taking on a sinister role. Please now depart And leave me to live my life, You may try to control But I don’t listen to the hype.
I need you to be gone So as to gain peace of mind, And as long as you’re here I can never unwind. You spread in me like cancer And ravage my very soul, You eat away at my heart Trying to make me your own.
I scream for you to leave And never come back, I pray for you to leave And someone else attack – Just leave and allow me some joy, Just leave or else you’ll destroy Just leave – I am not your toy.
Today through strange new eyes I see myself in another guise, With a sureness of foot And an inner calm, I force myself through With the ease of charm. And then I feel alive In the world I can survive, And when I shine through There’s nothing I can’t do; Give me any task And I’ll show you it’s true.
Today through even stranger eyes I see through those endless lies, With an uncertain look And a trembling hand, I hesitate through With my fumbling plan. And then I fall down Into hell I am bound, And when I lose control I leave bare my soul Find me a hole And I’ll hide from what is found.
What triggers it off? This mood that takes hold, What rolls the ball? This mood that runs cold. If I really knew, I might at last be with you, If I could say I might finally think it true.
Today through ever stranger eyes I see myself a big surprise With the luck of the draw And a show of pride, I make it with you For the very first time. Moods now are through Moods no longer due No wonder with you.
And as I sit here My head in my hands, I wonder where it’s gone, And what is now to come, Or will destiny Spoil our best laid plans.
And as I ponder The past comes into view, I see the times we had Whether good or bad, And then I saw What I held true.
My best years have been laid to rest, I did it all, I tried my best, And now all I want is peace In what should be my final release. And as I cry here Tears trickle down my face, Memories forever locked in time,
Will now and forever be mine,
But what of yours Are they still in place? And as I sink down Like in prayer on my knees, I ask you what you’ve done And if I’m the only one, Then when you answer Will I gain my release?
Our best years have long since gone, You did it all, You weren’t the only one, And through it all I needed some peace, In what could be my final release.
Every book is a journey On which I long to ride, An adventure That leaves us nowhere to hide, Its spark I must remember Or soon it’s gone, The one that makes me Or breaks all I’ve done.
Every page brings me nearer To my ultimate goal, My joy as it changes Soon takes hold. The people I make up Are constructed with care, I know them so well With their lives laid bare.
Every word is a wonder As the mystery unfolds, A constant delight As the story is told. I know not where it’s going Or where it will end, But I enjoyed the journey And a postcard do I send.
Love is Blind
Love is blind, Love is kind, Love is stranger than the mind, It picks you up when you’re down, Then knocks you back without a sound. And if I knew the why’s and where’s I’d be a king with lots of heirs.
Love is blind, Love is mine, Love is yours all of the time, It eats your soul and breaks your heart, But keeps you whole and not a part, And if you ask me why I still go on, I’d say because you are the one.
Love is blind, Love is fine Love is life most of the time, Its gives you hope and makes you pure, And offers joy when you’re not sure, And although it has its highs and lows, You have to stay or soon it goes.
