Song Titles picked.

.

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

Bravery

Hopping from tree to tree

each time a little closer

quietly gaining confidence

tentatively getting nearer

your bright red chest

your melodious song

Approaching the chair

you stand on one leg

head cocked to one side

paying attention to our words

without interruption

waiting, courageously

for encouragement

brightening my day

New, Newer, Newest

Is this new, newer, and newest.

Have I just bought it

Was it just produced?

A new book, a film, a song

Is it a kind of now exiting?

Or appearing for the first time.

It’s not a new concept,

But new knowledge, just found

Its newness is unfamiliar,

It’s strange, a new idea

A visit to a place

New to me, will it make me better

Different,from the former me.

A fresh new start, unused

Will I be a new me?

So in a new era, a new world,

Planted with newness around me.

Flowers growing, fresh green grass,

New buds wakening,

The spring is here,

A new person awaits

So I ring out the old

And sing in the new
