Stolen love

Lay your head on my heart
Feel the beats stop and start

Our mind pictures blending
the feelings we are tending
feel the warmth of my skin
it must be win win
Reach out to me

Feel the beats stop and start
describe your feelings
in this time are stealing
a time free to care
we have little to spare

Lay your head on my heart
Feel the beats stop and start

Life confounds

What is it with life
it has ups and downs
pleasure , pain, joy
and heartbreak
do the rounds

Would that our lives
could, just be pleasure
No pain or woe
for us to measure.

Why is it, things
go so wrong
bad things happen
regardless just be strong

How do I deal
with the days
that are black
when the roof
caves in
the cheque
bounces back

I have to dig deep
in my reserve
in my internal resevoir
my beliefs must serve

What is it with life
it has ups and downs
pleasure, pain, joy
and heartbreak
life can confound

Love songs and poems

Listening to the love songs

reading the poetry books

love should be out there

 can’t be overlooked


take my breath away

love at first sight

these are the prizes

if the authors are right


looked around the corners

 under the seats

in my life, that sort of love

seems to have me beat


take a deep breath, what do I smell

old socks , damp washing on the line

where are the  roses or jasmine 

romantic and fine


I think I have

had the sparks and the flashes

but not the full thunderstorm

or arel those songs and poems

so far from the norm



Is companionship and friendship

a more sustainable refrain

am I searching for unicorns

pots of gold, bubbles in champagne


I want to taste the sweetness 

of honey on my tongue

yes still I am searching

for a cliched romantic world of my own


Then I look up as a shadow drains the light

you walk into the house smiling

perhaps my shining knight

am I wasting my life on improbable profiling



Is my love with me

but my mind doesn’t see?

I am confused, who can help me?

Ups and Downs

What is it with life

 it has ups and downs

Pleasure and pain

 Joy and heartbreak

do the rounds

Would that our lives

 could, just be pleasure

No pain or woe 

for us to measure.
Why is it, things

 go so wrong?

Bad things happen 

not like in songs

How do I deal 

with the days

 that are black

When the roof 

caves in

The cheque

bounces back

I have to dig

in deep

To my reserves 

my internal resevoir. 

What is it with life

 it has ups and downs

Pleasure and pain

 joy and heartbreak

do the rounds.

Journey

The journey goes on

        The wheel of life turns

A new awakening burns

                               Thankful to see

New ideas to set me free
Moving through life

Things I can influence

                       Others ambiguous

              Must not waste time 

On things, outside my paradigm 
 Abundant and free

Use influence directly

                         Change the way I see

             Working on the me

Turn irritations to advocacy 
I choose love

                 of the self 

       of life not fixed positions

The journey goes on

Live aware till its gone
I am in awe  blown away

                             I am striving to

           Live life in the happiest way
