This is the end of a beautiful friendship

Englishman in New York

Boulevard of broken dreams

How can you mend a broken heart?

.

Can you?

.A Boulevard in New York,

Is a broken dream

Is a broken heart

Is an Englishman

Can you mend this heart?

Can you mend this dream?

Can you mend the end of a beautiful friendship?

.

My own choice of song titles.

.

Life is a lemon and I want my money back

How can you mend a broken heart?

Four Seasons in one day

They can’t take that away from me

.

Given Back

.Money From me and you

Take away my broken heart

How can I? How can’t I?

This lemon of a life

That they want back

The seasons mend one day

Tickerty-boo

It iwas an average sort of day

Unremarkable and unexceptional

Adequate in small talk

And tolerable weather

For a British summer

Nothings on a downer

As the lunch time comes my way

Weathers more acceptable

The sun has shown his face

It’s fair to moderate

One might say hunky-dory

And by the end of the day

Everything is plain sailing

Quite a decent day

In fact

It was all quite

Tickerty-boo

Rise above

Orange sun rose above the horizon

Spread its warm glow across the sky

Smile on the face of a woman

As she started her day

Rise above the words echoed

The squabbling, the shouting the petty remarks

Ignore trivial matters today

No being burdened with unkind words

Stop others concerns weighing her down

Adopt a better attitude than other

She was determined to rise above

Head held high

Gentle smile

Happy lilt in her voice

She was completely resolute

Not to lower herself to their level

Remain focus, and calm

As she rose above the day.

Gift of wings

We have a short moment in time

A snapshot of measurement

Moments, day’s months and years

To make the most of

.

Each day lived in, Filled with doing

Sometimes silence and peace

Pondering time, soaking up dreams

Making plans for the future

.

Regrets left behind, Memories are made

Living for the now not the past

Laughing enjoying each day

Future is inevitable not planned

.

You filled my life with adventures

Showered me with kindness

Offered me love, shared yourself

You lifted my grief, showed me life

.

I live in the moment,

I soar with contentment

I fly free with

This gift of wings

Happy Bus

happy bus

is a wet soggy day

Umpteen puddles to splash

Hot steaming coffee

Bright coloured flowers

Huge smiles of faces

It’s a Happy Bus day

The forecast is promising

Warmer weather on its way

Happy looking people

On a grey damp day

Music in my ears

Chocolate in my hand

I feel very happy

The smiles are free

So glad that most are on

The Happy Bus today.

Spring day

Dark clouds race across the sky

Driving rain falls like curtains of lace

Wind blows in gusts bending still life

A shard of bright light breaks through

Delicate leaves ripped from branches

White shapes fall in swirls

Dancing, fluttering in blasts of air

Cherry blossom falls like flurries of snow

Another spring day is here
