Autumn is arriving summers fading away

many leaves fall when autumn is due

summer hath passed and sweet mornings due


evenings come early as darkness creeps in

the warmth of summer slowly fading


moments of beauty on warms summers day

cool evenings coming autumn at play


sun light gets less dark evenings begin

swifts and swallows depart

migration calling


they must be on there way

to return again one spring day


autumn is coming summers

the chilly evenings on there way

this is end of long summers days



When I see a red rose before me

When I see  red red rose before me it reminds me of heart in love

a heart in love with all its beauty

When I  see red red rose before me


I feel in love I want to reach out and hold it close too me hold it close so close too me

becuase in love its meant to be

becuase in love its meant to be

like a heart beating so beautifully


verse two

When I see a red red rose before me it reminds me of love of love

with all its beauty

The colour of love such a beautiful dream

When I see when I see red red rose before me

when I see a red rose before me


I feel in love and I want too reach out reach out and hold it close so close to me

becuase in love in love its so meant too be

like a beautiful red rose before me it reminds me of a heart beating

so beautifully


when I fall in love with its beauty

when I fall in love with its beauty

I see a red rose before me

This is my life this isnt a fairy tale

Twice married twice failed

this is my life this isn’t a fairy tale

this is real this is me

I am facing reality


where was that seed

why didn’t  it grow

I will never ever know


what does our lord have for me

will he send me love

will it be


I will wait

wait and see


I ask I pray

for love and happiness to come my way


for someone genuine

 genuine too love me

my heart is waiting its waiting to sing

its waiting for love and for a beautiful dream

its waiting for love and true happiness

to come into my life once again


to make me feel whole and happy again

twice married twice failed

my life isnt a fairy tale

its not a dream


its just me  just me

waiting for love and happiness

once again too come into my life

to come to me to come to me

and make my heart

too make my heart sing

sing so beautifully


where are you my true love

come into my life please find me

open up  your heart

let me in let me let me feel your love

I am waiting

My life my feelings where are you

my life my feelings where are you

when is love really true

where is love I cant find you


is it possible or is it just a dream

its no where to be found

it nowhere to be seen


it just runs and hides from me

is it something that is meant to be

or has it been and gone and forgotten me

and left me on shelve to get dusty


they say there is someone for everybody

the greeks say its other half of our body


well love and happiness is just a complete mystery

for some it seems its meant to be

for others heartache and tradegy


we are left to sit by on shelves of life

getting dusty

like something discarded

not meant to be loved

not meant to be happy


only meant too sit dream

while the world goes on



with valentines romance

and others fufilling there dreams

where has love gone

why does love and happiness desert me


I will just sit and wait getting dusty

the seed has failed to grow

and blossom beautifully

just another failed part

of socioty


maybe I am just meant to

sit and write poetry

and makes others smile

with what they read


when will my heart once again sing

when will valentines for words

become my love my dream


will the past hurts of life go away

and true love and happiness come

the pompey poets way

i sit and dream and dream maybe one day

you came into my life when i needed a listening ear

You came into on and  my life

when I needed a listening ear

and shoulder to cry on

in between shedding a few tears


and then you went and never came again

as  many a hour hath passed and  many a minute and days

the silence is long you were a phone call away

your life so hectic so faraway


your silence is golden your smile

did light up my days

your voice so soft

and  your calming ways


I know nothing of what your upto

these days a friend indeed I thought

so faraway


but the silence is long

its been great many days

a memory which is fading

with time along the way


life is so lonely its just another long day


Pompey is my home portsmouth is my city

Pompey is my home portsmouth is my city

its my life its part of me

its where i took my first breath its my city


pompey pompey

where ships sail off to war and into history

the home of the Royal navy and Nelsons victory

is great place and home to many

my home my life my city


pompey pompey

whether you come by road or come by sea

you will be made welcome in my great city


pompey pompey a place of outstanding beauty my city

sail out in the solent or sit by the sea

watch the sunrise and the sun set with all its beauty


welcome to my home to my city

where i took my first breath  its my life its part of me

this is my home my city pompey pompey

the home of many my great city

pompey pompey

welcome to my home  to my city

Love is like a flower ever blossoming

Love is like a flower ever blossoming

in all its magic its beauty

once a seed ever growing


love is like the sun and moon

ever shining once its found


it never fades never goes

always appears glowing each day


love is like the beauty we see

each day


coulourful and bright

a wonderful display


so reach and grasp it

hold it close


never let it fade away

its forever not just a moment

its hear to stay


never let it go

or runaway

Give me hope give me strength help me to find away

Give me the hope give me the strength

give me the eyes to see


that beyond these dark clouds

there is sunshine and happiness and love once again for me


as life is dark and hopeless and there is no path for me

dear lord I ask you please to help guide me


show me the sun light show me the day

show me the path back to love and happiness again

show me the vision show me the beauty

show me life and love in all its glory


and give me the hope once again

that its there just waiting for me

to grasp it to hold it let it come to me

I ask you dear lord to help me to help me find away


Will love and happiness ever come my way

Will love and happiness

ever come my way

I wonder I think and think again


am i lost cause in this world I see

to be left on shelve getting old and dusty


did love just forget me and pass me by along the way

and say lost cause there,s no hope let him fade away


or is there,s someone special for me

I think not I have failed in this life I see


just meant to walked over trodden in the ground

like dirt never to be found left on life,s scrap heap

of misery


I rest my case life is my judge juror

and decision maker


what will be will be

there is no hope no hope for me
