a. You are the beauty I will never let go

Throughout life you are the first and last thought I have
as the day breaks and my mind starts to stir
and even before I have opened my eyes
my thoughts are of you and how you make me feel alive

Lucky enough to wake up next to you
each day is  a day to savour the memories we’ll create
and some days the world may feel against us but we are one
taking on the world together as together we win

All that keeps me going from morning till night
is the beauty that you are and mean to me
and it is beauty I will never let go

Even the fondest of memories I look back upon
and think of them as if they were yesterday
as the smiles have grown from then until now
remembering how we have grown is to show
how we have learnt to become one and love

I may not remember the first laugh we had together
but there are numerous amounts of laughs we’ve had
keeping the heart alive in love and in love with you

You are the beauty I will never let go
as you are my friend who became my love
and letting go in not an option
all I want is to hold you closer and keep you safe.



b. The source of love


From the naive heart
came the words I always wanted to say to you:

‘I love you’

Words so pure I never thought of nothing else
but there was never a good time to tell you
what my heart wants to say about you
so I stayed quiet thinking my own thoughts
dreaming one day I’d say:

‘I love you’

My quiet voice always said these words
but you never heard what I said that day
so I smiled to you and said goodbye
and as I waved I whispered to you:

‘I love you’

Naive was the heart but I knew it was you
that my life was all for you to make me true
I just never knew when was best to say
those three little words to you:

‘I love you’

I didn’t know if you’d say it back
my heart and my mind hoping you’d
say it back say it back say it back to me
with your heart of love for me or at least as a friend
My quiet words simply said:

‘I love you’

My source of love was pure
as love here was for no one else but you
for my eyes fell in love with you
truly deeper than I ever thought I would
my eyes looked into yours
and all they wanted to say is:

‘I love you’

A thousand smiles and the only one I’d remember
is the one that was upon your face
as it made my heart skip a beat for you
hoping I’d meet you soon again
making my heart skip and jump in the air
I’ve never been this far in the sky
but I found cloud number nine to lay and think of you
I simply thought of those three little words:

‘I love you’.

 



c. We’ll ride into the sunset


We rode the horses on the shore as we explored the world
and at that moment and in that time we were invincible

What we saw with our eyes we’ll remember forever
and together we saw the world in the same light

Riding into the sunset that day we would have never have looked back
as we would have been together with the world at our feet

As the horses wanted to gallop away we kept our feet upon the ground
our journey was far from over and we admired the view before we were on our way

With a rainbow across the sky and with the setting sun
the rain clouds came closer and time to ride back into reality

We’ll always be riding into the sunset no matter what happens
however I am in no rush to get to the setting sun to see the end of the day.



d. Walking the hills gives me time to think of how much I love you

The beauty of the view is greater with you
that will always be true no matter what I do

I walk the hills by myself as it gives me time
to get away from the built up world of life
with time to sort my thoughts and think of you
and what you mean to me and why I love you so

To bide my time and think clearly I am happier inside
with view of beauty I see with my eyes in front of me
and within my mind I see the beauty that you are to me
always grateful in this world to have both you and the view

Walking hills and writing what comes from them
is with you in mind as the effort it is to walk
is of equal measures into making you happy as you deserve

How a simple walk can give me time to be a better person
and a better person to you and all around as my mind
is forever thinking of how to make you happier

To walk the hills is to escape what we know
and to find and explore those memories and thoughts
that rarely make their way into the world as there just isn’t time

When walking I have only one aim and that aim is to be happy
while walking I think of you and the joy that it is to be in awe of you
as I sit upon the hill I pause for a few quiet thoughts

Sitting in the presence of the beautiful view it soon becomes time
to head back down the hill to where I started my journey
once again with a clear mind and a heart that is now healthier

The beauty of the walk and the beauty that you are helps keep me, being me
and the journey we are on is a journey we are always on together
no matter where you and I are in the world I will be walking
with my heart in my hands and my thoughts of you in the front of my mind
all for us and to work towards our happiness wherever our walk will take us.



e. Age means nothing

It doesn’t matter who you like
who it is that you admire
or who your heart falls in love with
the age means nothing

It’s how you spend your time
together with the one you adore
that defines who you are
and what happiness there is

You could be ten years older
but it wouldn’t mean a thing
as I’d spend every moment with you
all because I have fallen for you

You can’t defy who you like
or who you adore
and if you fall in love
savour that time
like you savour the day

Age in time or time between age
it doesn’t matter to me
as you are the one I have fallen for
the only one I need to be with

Age means nothing
but you mean everything to me.



f. We climb the hill together, we fall together (we then climb together again)

Coopers Hill, Robinswood Hill or Churchdown Hill
physically we walk together to fill our lungs
with the air we breathe to be side by side
each walk is a journey together and like life we walk as one

We climb through the struggles helping eachother day by day
when we fall, we fall together, only to stand back up
brush ourselves down and hold each other and climb once more

By climbing together we learn how strong we are together
and when we aren’t strong enough we help each other to get to the top
a few words of encouragement or a gentle push on the back
it might just take to be the strength that the other one needs

Hand in hand or mind over matter
what does matter is that we are there for each other to get up and over that hill
through thick and thin we stand strong to go forwards in what we do

Life together may be like walking through a mountain range
but we know there will always be greater views and greater moments together
as we climb and enjoy what life has to offer us as we travel together.



g. As others fell away, we kept walking

How many faces do you see slip away
from once so often we forget faces we use to know

Life takes its toll and we change when we grow
yet through it all you have stood by me
and we remember those faces
as one day we’ll see them again

As others fell away, we kept walking
like we knew where we were going in life
when actually we were just like everyone else
we were finding our way through the unknown

Never did we want anyone to fall away
but life takes us on different journeys
and these journeys take their time

The paths that these journeys have created
will one day cross over again
and the faces will be known to us
with time to find out how the journey has been

As others fell away, we kept walking
holding each other close and holding hands tightly
making sure we never fell away to keep our hearts close
with our journey’s path forever continuing

As others fell away they were on their journey
and we will one day find the paths that cross
as our life journeys started together
and friendships that are will never be forever fallen.



h. Hello beautiful where have you been

Hello beautiful where have you been
I’ve been searching for you all over the world
Through forests, into caves and across the oceans
I look and I looked but you weren’t found

Every sun rise until every sunset
I searched far and wide for you
I waited and waited until the sun was gone
only then did I rest until the light rose once again

Then one day I woke up into life as it was
looking no further than where I lay
and I found you closer than I would have ever have known

Where have you been hiding at this time
have you been in my heart the whole way
or is this the way I was suppose to find you
writing my words of love to you
and when the words start to make sense
I suddenly find that you were with me
all this time and right next to me

Hello beautiful where have you been
it’s like I’ve been on a long train journey
I finally get to you with arms open wide
walking up one final hillside to get to you
You have never been far away from me.



i. Did our voices once travel through the telephone lines across the field?

Did our voices once travel through the telephone lines across the field?
for hours and hours we spoke down the line and we did not wonder where the words went
from telephone to telephone we didn’t know how our words got to one another
all we knew is that our words were all that we needed one another needed to hear

I look at the telephone line as I catch my breath upon the hill I start to wonder
if our words ever made it this way past the hill and down the lane
did the hill and the lanes hear our words as well as we spoke for hours upon hours
ever wondering if they could tell me how the words I spoke got to you from me

The words we spoke I can still hear to this day but as the wind blows the words are swept away
how the hills must have listened to our words and knew what love there was in each and every word
yet never did they tell a soul as the words that were are forever for the people they were between

To this day however I do not know if the words made it this way past the trees and through to the views
in some way I would like to think so and the words of love would have been here
for the the words we spoke were as beautiful and glorious as the land that the telephone line goes across

If I followed the telephone line to where it went across the land and over hills far and wide
would I find you at the end if it or even the words that I spoke to you in a giant heap on the floor?
looking back and over the hill comes the rain the heavy clouds have threatened with all day
the walk to find those lost words would have to wait for now and let the mind wander a little bit more.



j. The moment I realised that you were the one

The moment I realised that you were the one was the first moment I saw you
it was like I was dreaming and the everything else in the world just didn’t matter
how did I know from that moment that everything in life was to be about you

I had only just set my eyes upon you but something was felt from that moment
until this very moment in which I have never felt any other way towards you
but at the time how was it set in life that as soon as my eyes saw you I knew
that you were the one for me and for the rest of my life ahead of me

Even before any words were spoken I had this gut feeling about you
it wasn’t like I leapt towards you shouting and screaming what I felt
I stood back and I let nature run its course as this was a strange feeling
a feeling of something so natural I knew I had to take my time
to find out what it meant to me and indeed if it was meant to mean anything to you

Soon enough we started to speak to one another and I had never heard such a beautiful voice
a voice so calming I’d never felt like anything before when I was talking with you

From that moment onwards I kept thinking how could I feel like I do even though I just met you
I thought that this must be my mind playing games with me and thought the feeling would pass
however I set to be wrong as what I felt has stayed with me for what seems like a lifetime

It would appear love at first sight is indeed true and the moment I first saw you was the proof of that
now living and loving with you by my side and in my mind and my soul forever more

The moment that I realised that you were the one, I then realised that everything my life was for
was to make you the happiest and looked after person that there could ever be
all because from the first moment I saw you I knew that you were the one for me forevermore.



k. Undressing you with my eyes I try to reveal what your heart says about me

Undressing you with my eyes I try to reveal what your heart says about me
I see the real you and what it, if, is or at all it means to be close to me
Each layer I peel back I see a new something of you which make my heart flutter
yet there is nothing that means more to me than what you really think of me

As you are deep within my heart and my heart can go no deeper for you
I must see if what it is that I feel is somewhere within your heart
So start to undress what I can see to get underneath the outside

This isn’t about the physical attraction that the eyes peel away
it is about your heart and mind and what they actually feel if anything like I do

Undressing you with my eyes I close my eyes in the hope everything becomes clear
I’m dreaming, I’m dreaming of you in my eyes and what I feel for you

Your beauty is deeper than what is on the surface of the skin
however what I see before me is more than any other beauty I have seen.



l. 13th Hour


As the hour approaches I feel like it isn’t time for me to go just yet
no matter how long it has been I just don’t feel like I should go
I feel like I want to stay further and go forth into the 14th hour

I think of every word that I could possibly say in order for a few more moments with you
to spend another minute with you might just give the chance to see your smile once more
before the time together is finished and the world is back to how it was before

By the 13th hour I felt alive rather than fatigued from the time together
not at any moment did it feel like we didn’t want to be next to one another
conversation never drying up or no still silent awkward moments

There were moments of reflection as the sun shone brightly and the day went on
With our thoughts were as fresh as when we met that day but the hour has come
and we must now must continue onwards with the day ahead and into the next hour.
