Poet Jordan V40 The piano in the garden


2. Saving a soul


Your sinking soul
I’d save
Even if
It sinks
Into mine
So we’re able
To save
One another
For one more
Chance together
To rise above
Towards the surface
And beyond
Where our souls
Will survive
And be alive.

4. All he wanted


All he wanted
Was to give his words to her
Words that resonate
In his mind over and over

The words
Unheard or not
He still loved her

Breaking his own heart
There was no need to break hers
For hers was taken

All he wanted
Was to share his thoughts
With the like minded heart
That is you

He still loved her
Because heart agreed with his mind
It was love that was felt

The words
Unheard or not
They resonated
And still do
Every time
He sees her eyes

Breaking his heart he did no more
Instead when those eyes
Looked deeply into his
He simply smiled
Thinking to himself
That the love is there
If it is ever needed

The words
Unheard or not
He still loved her.


5. Please believe me


Please believe me
When I say

  • I like you

Please believe me
When I say

  • I’d like to dance with you

Please believe me
When I say

  • You make my heart smile

Please believe me
When I say

  • Your laughter is infectious (like your smile)

Please believe me
When I say

  • I live for you and to be near to you

Please believe me
When I say

  • I love you
  • Not the pretend love, the real love
  • The love that means I’d die for you

Please believe me
When I say

  • And what I say

Because it is what I say
And what I feel
Otherwise
I wouldn’t say
Anything at all.


6. My child’s memories

Poet Jordan V40 My child's memories


7. From the bridge

8. He didn’t mean to fall in love


He didn’t mean to fall in love
But after he met you he could feel no other way

The moment his eyes captured her light
It was like a switch had been flicked

He didn’t mean to fall in love
However at the end of the day
That is what happened
And that switch has never been flicked back

Whatever the light would be that day
It would have lit up his heart anyway
With beauty that strong he had to hang on

He didn’t mean to fall in love
But who decides when and who you fall in love with
(Love is exhilarating but the sudden stop can cause some pain)

Falling in love his eyes met the light
That would shine brightly for longer than could ever imagine

His heart said to him to fall in love
And gladly the mind and soul accepted

He didn’t mean to fall in love
But after he met you he could feel no other way.

11. Love letter


Does anyone still write love letters?
Or is it now a lost art

Writing the words of the heart
Taking time and thinking of how one feels

Penning the words that sometimes are too hard to say
But written they become somehow more factual
The heart pace eases and the words are now free

Or is it just instant love
Like instant messaging
Press send and await the reply

Jumping straight to ‘I like you‘
‘I love you’
Let’s go out together?
Now let’s jump into bed??

See that it’s delivered, read
But always scared of the what the response may be

No matter what how the message is
Or how it is delivered
The wait is long and nerve racking

Does anyone still write love letters?
Because if love is worth the wait
A handwritten letter
Would show more to he or she
That you feel so strongly inside
It’s just if we’re willing to wait
In what one another feels

Does anyone still write love letters?
Or have times changed

A love letter to me says more to me
But times have changed
So press send
And wait nervously inside.


12. ‘Where we were’


Where we were
I’d forgot

So many memories
I’d forgotten a few
Until I saw you

Like a flash of lighting
The memories came back
With the feelings
Felt as strongly then
They do so now

For this moment
We’d could be
Where we were
With forgetting
Everything that is now
As this moment
Hasn’t occurred
Since it was forgotten

Where we were
We never were as near now
As we were then

Where we were
I remember fondly
If not forgetting
Some details

Where we were
I tried to find the past
But it wasn’t there
As it had already been
And gone

Where we were
I’d forgot
As time had past
And the effect of time
Had taken some memories.

14. ‘A glorious day’


A glorious day to walk
With you in mind
And by my side

A glorious day
Like when I met you
In a class of your own

A glorious day
Is never far away
When I am with you

A glorious day
[As I close my eyes]
Breathing in the cold crisp air

A glorious day
All because
Life is better with you.
