There's not much to know about me...I'm just me.

Hello

It’s been one long,

Lonely night since

Last we met,

But now that darkness has faded

To daybreak.

The clouds are still there,

But now are a little thin.

I can’t wait for adventures

Now and for life to begin!

I am still wary,

Still very much alone

But I’ve learnt something:

My life is my own.

I cannot tell when dusk will start,

And the darkness reigns supreme

But for now I am content

And life is a dream.

Gone

How can I say hello
When so much has changed?
How can I still smile
When I’m not that girl anymore?

Time has left lines
Along my face, eyes that were full
If hope are dimmed
And lost beneath weariness.
A faltering twitch of lips
Is all that remains of happiness.
I’d give anything to laugh riotously
Again, anything to love
Freely and without fear.

I wish that girl,
The one I used to be,
Was here.
But she’s not and I am alone.
I can’t even pick up the phone
To say hello now.
Where has she gone?
Where have I gone?

Broken

You have no idea,
Not a single one.
This is bad
And so far from fun.
I want to hide
And become someone new,
But at the same time
I can’t bear to leave you.

Christmas will be shit
And filled with sorrow,
Empty prayers and people
That are hollow.
Useless little me,
How pathetic and alone,
All I dream of is a place
To call home.

So if you are happy
And of good cheer,
You are fortunate and I wish
You a Happy New Year.
But if like me
You find yourself full of woe,
Don’t dwell on others,
Just let it go.

And be broken
And free.

Joe

Joe, oh Joe.
The lover of life,
Strictly Come Dancing winner
And thrower of dice,
The winds are in your favour
So sail forth,
Follow your heart
And find your worth.
We love you,
We love you
Oh so much,
You brighten our lives
With just a touch
Of your charm,
Especially with Katya
On your arm!
A dancing duo
Like Ginger and Fred…
Enough of beautiful visions
And go to bed,
You must be exhausted!

Well done to both of you!

Nonsense

Grey skies are danced
away by sun rays,
The rain dried by the warm
breeze of hope, it is
Slowly spreading it’s love
throughout the land.
The clouds may be running
And the sky may be blue,
But there’s nothing to stop
Santa from being on his way to you!
The season is approaching,
A time of happiness and cheer.
Now watch the frost in mornings,
And coldness at night…Christmas
Is near!
