Money

Money issues come and go
round and round only you will know
the surest and best truths lie
simply just, between you and I

When all the money has been spent
and all the debt, to hells been sent
always remember the simplest truth
its only through love that everything else exists

My love for you and your love for me
seems simply really, our little family
many years now, fun indeed
like the poem? read on dammit, READ..

All in all we will never change,
our patterns set in and repeat the same
the difference, of course, between us and them
is the love between us, together, tightly hemmed!

my darling nanna
a poem for you
to keep you warm
when your feeling blue

know your loved
so dearly indeed
know that your influence
forever we heed

your passion for christ
inspires us today
your generosity and kindness
reflected in many ways

in us we pray
forever to keep
that little something
of you in us deep.

we take with us nan
that which we love most
the times spent often
in your gorgeous grace

remember we love you
remember we’re here
always and forever
we hold to you dear

god bless you nanna
from us to you today
always good to see you
and for you we do pray

My darling Gladys
this final poem for you
a long beautiful life
god’s seen you through

whilst we remember the times we had with you
we can reminisce all things that we had to do
and so its with pleasure that i stand here, not sad
to reminisce on all that we truly called Glad

and now as the doors close
and the curtains pulled back
the sun fills your room
setting you on your final track

off to heaven you know you most certainly shall go
more heavenly than most as your actions truly showed
through life and now most certainly here after
your there to give everyone a mouthful of laughter

and no doubt set more things to be right
you might even need to complain or fight
for what you believe, but, we understand
as your strength is something that even god knows firsthand

so say hello to Jim, we sure miss him too
and your parents of course, whom helped see you through
to all of us indeed, so safe and so sound
and to make us the people, whom of you we are proud

having known you gladys, fun as it was
your chapter concludes, but will continue in us
through memories and dreams, we will visit you quietly
we are all looking forward to seeing you again shortly

Always Be With You (lyrics)

Always Be With You
This song is for all friends and family the same, my extended network reflecting my name.

Verse1
so of all these places we’ve been to and laughs we’ve had
plane flights to exotic unknown lands
new countries and cities and people to see every day – ho ho yeah
everywhere i go everything i do, new places remind me of us and of you
bring on the change but take the pain away , its time in my life to rearrange
so did you know? but did you know? yeah yeah

Chorus1
ill always be with you, no matter where you are
so ill always be with you in the corners of your beautiful mind
ill always be with you, no matter where you are
yeah ill always be with you – as your always with me

Verse2
their smile, their eyes but your face in the croud
pull back the shutters shine a light in the shroud
comfort found familiarities simply mean Im missing you
yeah i miss your smile and all the things that you love
gentle reminders of your warmpth and touch
human jigsaw pieces of you everywhere but only secretely for me
so keep me in your thoughts
but set those memories free yeah

Chorus2
ill always be with you, oh, no matter where you are
ill always be with you woo oh oh a yeah
a piece of me travels with you (with you) when you remember my name (remember my name)
yeah ill always be with you (with you with you), yeah yeah
no matter where you are

Verse3
long term friendships picked up where they left
nothing really changes but time leadened steps
and the frequency of the round dial of your age delay
liberation from heavy posession, new life the pain of growth and change
so say hello to something different, broken shards of life are yours to arrange
so did you know? oh did you know! yeah yeah

Chorus3
ill always be with you, no matter where you are
ill always be with you in the corners of your beautiful mind
a piece of me travels with you when you remember my name
yeah ill always be with you, (with you with you) yeah yeah (no matter where you are)

Outtro
keep me in your thoughts as I keep you in mine
but let each memory float free
tomorrow is coming for you and for me
look to the moon at night as we are connected by its silvery light
and then well be together again
together again

End
and ill always be with you….

Sun

jigsaw pieces of you and i
fitted in between, everytime you leave the room, i loose a part of me
upon return

empty rooms, and coffee cups
the remnants of the day
empty office blocks still litup like it still midday

papers shredded,desk chairs cold
and computers on standby
so many decisions made, things to do and say on monday

looked out my window with its cracked wooden frame
with the sun shining down on me today
not long now till the sun fades away and night settles in

another day over time passes us by
like a swift cool river, just dont close your eyes
so many decisions, things to do and say – tomorrow

but right now iill just try and enjoy the sun
its easy when i have no where left to run

opened the front door, walked down the street
full of people id like to meet
but ill never likely see them again today or tomoorrw

so many rocks unturned, so many places to see
all these plans overwhelmin me
so many decisions, things to do and say – tomorrow

but right now iill just try and enjoy the sun
its easy when i have no where left to run

so dont worry, time will heal all wounds my friend
as we sit idly by and watch it all disappear
so dont worry as nothing is forvever now
and then all thats left is the love between you and i

so dont worry
so dont worry

so here im going now, its my long goodby
strange legacies playing in your minds ears and eyes
as i return to that cracked window frame
to see the sun again

so dont worry, time will heal all wounds my friend
as we sit idly by and watch it all disappear
so dont worry as nothing is forvever now
and then all thats left is the love between you and i
