Escape

Escape with me from this world of pain.

Forget war, disease, political shame.

Enter our minds, reside in the dream.

Forget for a few minutes, wipe your thoughts clean.

Our brains have the capacity to take us away.

To transport us back to the times when we’ve played.

Happy times, full of smiles and much more.

Energised times, from which true joy was spawned.

Escape with me from this world of pain.

Forget war, disease, political shame.

Take a few breaths give yourself some respite.

Before entering recharged into this world’s bitter fight.

Needed Angels

If ever we needed angels,

We need angels now.

If we ever needed to love,

We need that love now.

For thy neighbour will need both,

In coming days and weeks.

The people that we love,

Will doubtless need to seek.

So as we close in upon ourselves,

Let’s open up our hearts.

And not forget that all in our world,

Are feeling the hits come hard.

If ever we needed angels,

We need angels now.

So be ready to help who you can,

In any which way or how.

Rock

I wish we were wrapped up,

Holding each other tight.

Fighting off the pain in our world,

Answering each other’s plight.

I wish the distance couldn’t stop us,

From showing how much love we hold.

Couldn’t insulate us from the warmth,

That we’d easily physically show.

I wish that were together now,

I wish for that a lot.

Supporting when the need is real,

To be each other’s rock.

Too Hard

I listen to the breeze whisper a curse.

The blackest of night’s shrouds covered it’s verse.

Insipid the words that worked their way in.

Dragging me down o’er dark vales of sin.

Oh how I needed a friend tonight.

A friend to guide me to the light.

And there you were my friend indeed.

There you were to bind wounds that bleed.

Shining as my beacon calling me back.

Your beauty, your love, made pain retract.

Thankyou my love I owe you my heart.

My light, my saviour, when all seemed too hard.
