Beautiful View

You don’t have to travel far to see some special views
I could be sat on top of Coopers Hill
Looking out at the view
But sitting next to you
I need not look any further for a beautiful view.


Wave

When I see you leave,
I wave goodbye,
But in my mind,
I’m blowing you kisses,
Wishing I could hug you goodbye,

When I see you leave,
I look into your eyes,
Hoping you can see how sad I am to leave,

When I see you leave,
I wave goodbye for now,
Holding onto the last view of you,
Until I can wave hello the next time we shall meet.


Sky

When I look at the sky,
I never know what I expect to see,
Sometimes I think the answer to my problem will appear from above,

I look deeply at the blue sky,
The answer is there somewhere to be found,
Perhaps a passing cloud might help,

If a cloud can’t help,
I’ll just have to keep on looking,
The answer I crave may never be found,
But when I look at the sky,
I at least know you can look to the sky,
Maybe one day we will find the answer together.


Comfortable

When I’m around you,
I never feel awkward,
As I sit near you I feel so warm and close to you,

I could talk to you for hours,
Listen and share opinions of this world we live,

I’m not even sure if the word ‘comfortable’ is the right word to use,
But I don’t feel like this with anyone else.


Manic World

We live in a manic world,
Never ending noise & movements,
Just sometimes, sometimes,

Peaceful moments come along:

– You Savour The Moment –

Closing your eyes,
Inhale a deep breath,
And at that moment you think to yourself,
Clear your mind,
Still with your eyes closed,
You breathe out,

Open your eyes wide open,
You see the world in front of you once more,

Now a little calmer,
More focused,
You’re ready to take on the manic world we live.


On a day like today

On a day like today,
I’d treat you like a princess,
Shower you with gifts,
Treat you and spoil you,

On a day like today,
I’d hug and kiss you,
Hold your hand,
Smile at you at every occasion I could,

On a day like today,
I might only get to smile at you,
And to receive one back,
Means the world to me,

On a day like today,
I can only think of you,
Because today is all about you.


Path

Oh Lord help us all,
Through trials of life,
One can never rely on you more,
Guide me, show me the way,
Guide me in the direction I am destined to go,
Help me choose a path to follow,
A path that will lead me to you.


A Thousand Feelings

A static picture can tell a thousand feelings,
The look in your eyes gives me all I need to know,
Even looking at a picture of you, My heart melts,
A thousand feelings run through my body,
Every time I see a picture of you,
And every time I see you for real,
My heart grows a bit fonder of you.


Arms Wide Open

Standing here with my arms wide open,
Waiting for you to get to me,
I’ve fallen in [love] (and I need you here),
I scream and shout but no one can hear me,
These thoughts need to be let out,

Dreaming of holding my arms out wide,
Waiting for you to get to me,
Embracing in body & mind,
I’ll never let you go,
For as long as I shall live.


These are my feelings laid bare

Laying down all these feelings,
Leaving them exposed to the world,
I feel bare as these feelings are all I have to offer.

I see all sorts of feelings in the world,
I can relate to some,
If not many feelings,

But I struggle to say how I feel

(Sometimes because I’m not expected to feel this way about you,
Nor am I expected to show the way I care for you so much)

I write for feelings I have for people,
People I find close to my heart,

These are my feelings laid bare,
Please treat them with care.


Light

You give me the light to shine,
The energy to breathe,
When all seems lost or far away,
You were there to encourage me,
Give me the inspiration to live,

You see me in a different light,
A better light I may add,
The light I want to live my life by,

I breathe much easier around you,
And the light you give to me,
Guides me in the right direction.


Dreaming of you last night

I had a dream you died in my arms,
I held you tight,
Made sure you were in no pain,

I never told you how I felt,
There was never time,

When I saw your eyes close for the final time,
I knew I’d lost so much,

The final breath,
The final goodbye,

I kept holding tight,
Keeping you safe until the very last moment,

When I knew you were gone,
I knew you were in a better place with God,

I never told you how I felt,
I ran out of time,
But until we meet again,
Until we can hold each other,
I’ll tell you every day that I love you.


You are my star

Pointing at the star in the sky,
Saying to you it’s the twinkle in your eyes,
Seeing the smile appear upon your face,
Telling you how beautiful you are,

Looking up at the sky,
The clear blue sunny sky,
I saw the stars disappear from the sky,

Then seeing the twinkle in your eyes,
Reminds me I’ll never be far away from a twinkle of a star,

You are my star,
You’ll never be far away,
I can look to the sky,
I can look into your eyes,
You are my star.


Light around the world

Dark days never remain dark,
There is always light around the world,

It may take it’s time to get to you,
But the darkness will move,
Making room for the light to shine and break open the day,

A new day will come,
It will be the start of something new,
The light will shine,
It will make you breathe easier,

Looking back on the darker days will make you stronger,
But do not dwell upon them,
Let them remind you of the positive light you have been given in front of you,

The light around the world will get to you,
And when it does it will be worth the wait.


Edge of the World

Standing on the edge of the world,
viewing as far as the eye can see,
pondering the next move to make,
contemplating the future that lay before me,

As I stand on the edge of the world,
the world becomes more in focus,
knowing that there is a risk that I could fall,
puts everything I have into perspective,

Standing on the edge will not help me if I do not act,
I must have the fear within me to make choices,
As I may not make them in any other circumstance,
but yet acting now may cause me to fall,

Yet the risk of falling or the risk of staying on the edge,
Will not deter my feelings from the choices I make,
I may only reflect on what I have thought from afar,
but until I fall I shall not know what is there to fall upon,

To what I fall upon or what I find once landed,
Is the unknown we all face in life,
in each day of every year,
Once fallen I have to stand again,

To stand again and look back from where I fell,
The edge of the world may now seem so far away,
As I look up at the edge I feared for so long,
I now look to climb to that edge again.


Every Eye

Every eye has a youthful side,
they never look old nor bored of looking,
The eye can see in many ways,
some ways it wishes to see the world how they want to be,
in other ways it sees the world as it is to be,
Every eye has a beautiful side,
even thou the eye has no sides,
the colour and the depth of each eye,
is beauty captured in every ray of light,
the light shining upon your eye sparkles to catch my eye,

Every eye has a story to tell,
No matter where you look,
I can see you have many thoughts through your eyes,

Every eye tells your emotion,
maybe emotions of sadness,
maybe emotions of happiness,
but every emotion runs through your eyes,

Every time I look into your eyes,
Every emotion runs through my eyes into yours,
I see the wonderful you within your eyes.


You are my heaven and my haven

You are the place, my muse where all my dreams congregate,
my haven where I can relax and be me,

You are the heaven I dream about every day,
and the haven I wished so much for,
for so long,

You are my heaven and my haven,
I need not say much more.
