Daddys Gone

She walked up to him brushed her hand along his arm
leaned over and whispered in his ear
your the one for me dear
I want you to stay close
I want you to stay near

He gave her a loving stare back
he told her that every little thing she does
Makes his world exciting and new
As she flicked her hair across her neck

She couldnt take her eyes off of him
There was the love of her life stairing at her with a smile a silly grin
As silence broke the moment  as if caught up in time
He knew someday he would marry her
And all in life would be fine

This moment they didnt take for granted
They made the most of what they had
Before he was to go and fight for his country
Her freedom and that of the unborn childs dad

Little did they know of this
only time would tell of this tale
When he was at war
she was gone to far
The child would be born before then

As she sent off letters to him to tell him of his child
a telegram came to silence her
The news was bad inside
She held her baby near and whispered in his ear

Your daddys gone been killed by a bomb
What will we do now
Oh what can be done
Dear baby you are your daddys son

 A picture was all she had left
She pinned it to the babies cot
As tears trickled down her face
She remembered their first dating place

As she walked up to him brushed her hand along his arm
As he leaned over and whispered in his ear
His words to her your the one for me dear
I want you to stay close
I want you to stay near

The Dark Knight

I hear the sound of footsteps
No one is behind me
The whistling of the wind
Tares branches from the  trees

Water flows by me
As i walk along this lonely pathway
Something runs past me
Phew ! its only a black cat

Maybe it will bring me good luck
I think to myself
As i look across the field
I'm amazed at the beauty beneath it

The hills almost hit the sky
The sand is piled high
grass grows over the dirt underneath
the ends of it look like a large wreath

The tales are told of a man coming from this place
He rides the black horse over the river
When he comes with his cry
This is something you wont want to hear

But have i ever seen him no not i
Would i ever want to
I wouldnt i reply
So i wonder in amazement

At this pile of hills touching the midnight sky
The man of the night whips his wild horse with delight
He throws himself back as he whips the horses back
His long black coat pulls along over the river tracks

I look to the river its calm and its quiet
Not a whisper or noise
The horseman has lost his fight
He is resting for now
But someday somehow
He will wake up again
And wonder along the hills up high

In my Dreams

The wind it blows me to my knees
I walk against it with a force of me
I cant stop it from doing what it wants
Its too strong for poor little me

A shelter of a coat is thrown around
My body
I feel no more cold
The good stranger
Helped me in my hour of need

I look up at this tall dark figure
Looks back down on me
Thank you for your help
Your welcome with a smile

As i run in to the arch doorway
He stands there in the middle of the road
I turn to see him one last time
But he has disappeared
This shocks me where has he gone?

No one else has seen this man
I begin to wonder why ?
was it a figment of my imagination?
where is this man i sigh ?

As i lay asleep in my bed
My dreams are replaced with images
Of this day i have had
He is so real in my thoughts and mind

I relive this day as if i had never done before
Then comes a knock to my bedroom door
I wake up shocked scared who could it be?
Then comes a voice its only ME

I suddenly wake up from this dream
With my heart beaten strong
And look at the picture on my bedside locker
Of my husband who here no longer

He came to me in my dreams
Leting me know i would be safe
I dont worry or cry
I pray and kiss his picture
Now i know he is here with me
I love him and wish him well

Dont go Yet

This is where it falls
This is how we find ourselves
Lay me on the brown crushed leaves
On the scathered soil

As the sunshine beams through
the darkness of the woods
The blanket of its arms
Cover me from head to toe

It protects me from the falling snow
I wouldnt mind i have no where else to go
This is my home for tonight maybe
I could get used to the shelter of the trees

The bright sky turns to dark
There is a beautiful twinkling of the stars
As a mere lightly lined cloud
 hovers over these stars

The moon smiles at me
and gives me a wink
I smile back at him and bid him goodnite
I pray for a safe and protected night

Then as i turn to close my eyes
I hear a sudden noise
I wonder what it could be
I turn to and to my surprise

Is a image that i havent seen
 for a very long time
The inner little side of me
The lonely lost man

I talk with him for awhile
He assures me i will be alright in the morning
That my head will sorted
Not rattled and torn

But i do not wake up
As i look down at me
I shout and i roar
But he doesnt hear me

Look at me i say
As i try to wake him up
Then i whisper in his ear
That your time is not up

So as he awakes finally from his sleep
He knows he has been visited by his other side of me

Our Special Place

Where are you now
Where have you gone
You went away a long time ago
You were no where to be found

As i close my eyes
that are full of tears
I some how wish i
could turn back the years

We had some fun
We had a blast
Love like this
could not possibly last

If you were here
What would you say
I wonder what you done
The last time you came this way

This is our place
Where no one else goes
Keep it to yourself
Dont share it with her

I wish as time passes by
That i had more time with you
Why did you have to go
Where are you now

I need you dont you know
My heart is bleeding
I beg you to come back
I need you close
Your the one that got away
The one i miss the most

I will come here everyday
I no you will return and not go away
I see the mark you left on this tree
It is there to remind you of me

So as i wait for you to come back
Another piece of writing i will add to the bark
And as the sap seeps from it
The stars that fill the sky will keep it lit

The boy who caught my eye

Lay here on the river bank
The sun it beams down on me
I forget about everything
I even forget to run home for my tea

But the days are long and warm
And the water is cool and fresh
I can feel the flies having a feast
Eating away here on my flesh

I hush them away
So they go on their merry way
God i think to myself
How i love days like this to relax

This is where i come to think
This special place it's grassy banks
are like a huge sink
Swimming in the water
staring up at the clouds go by

Theres not a single sound or noise
not even the sound of a car
The bitting of the minnow
They nip on my tiny toes

The smell of the wild flowers
It reminds me of my grandmothers rose
as i sit and watch in amazement
of the land surrounding me

The young farmers son comes walking by
He tries to ignore me
I pretend i cannot see him
tough im looking through the corner of my eye

Then all of a sudden a wasp comes after me
He shoots down from the sky
This boy of who i do not know
Comes to rescue me

But as i run to get away
He gets stung by a bee
So now the roles are reversed
And i run to him

I suppose i need to help him out
As i stand over him with a silly grin
I call out to his father to come to get his boy
I can tell you this boy is mortified
this embarressment  brings him no joy

His father helps him home
The vinger comes out
the boy turns to his mother and says
Please escort her out

The nerve of him i think to myself
For telling me to go
Sure he is only a stupid boy
Sure what would he even know

As i turn to walk away from the house
He screams the place down
I laugh to myself when i think of it
I couldnt help but run back in and have abit of a skit

He wouldnt talk to me for several days
He made me suffer well
but now at least we have some memories
And some stories to tell

Since we married several years gone by
We remember that day well
It seems fate had our future together
mapped out really well


I sit here on the swing
My heart it falls down low
M y mind begins to wander
I dont know where to go

I feel so empty and isolated
Theres no one there for me
The world is on my shoulders
I look down at my scratched and torn knees

These marks are from where i fell
The puddle stopped me
It caught me well
Running back from the neighbours
The lightening filled the the whole of the house

But now its cleared up
But my mind had not
My eyes are filled with sadness
My head has lost the plot

I sing to forget the emotions
That are running all through me
And hope and pray for a better day
Than this one i would gladly wish it away

These questions fill my head
Will life improve with age
Or will i continue to be captured
Like a bird in a cage

But i know this cant be true
I am no animal in a zoo
I will someday grow and blossom
And be glad of what i knew

So as my feet scrape the dirt on the ground
The birds have filled their nests
my head is clear the moon is there
The cold is biting me
Mothers shouting out come in out of the cold

I am sitting in my armchair now
These are distant memories
I am now old
A story told

Conversation understanding

Sun sets it's beams between the tree
Rays of light hit the ground
so softly
Leaves hang below the branches down low
Scorched grass meadow no rain no snow

Stillness fills ones busy mind
with the calm of a quiet forest
 humbling all that enter
As silence falls upon the quiet
let there be nothing but nature itself

Serenity is of our making nature is always calm pure and complete.
 One must want to see the beauty.
The fist good is the toughest to find.
Let the ocean wash me clean of myself
and bring me to a truth that is greater than we.

As my branches clutch the stems of the breathless land
fill me full of sun light to survive distruction of mans hand
My light reaches to hit the heart of the yearning forest trees
Let natural life create itself below my sun beams

Walk in peace and peace will walk with you.
Abandon your self to something greater than our own
perception of a prioritization system
that is not applicable to the forest or the sky or the ocean.
 Nature will prioritize our minds.
Only humans can make things that are not so.

Let nature and nurture combine into you
let socialization help us too
As our fathers and mothers of the past have learned
Let the land teach us everything
Its beauty astounding

Feed the good but dont be afraid to destroy the bad.
The skill is in knowing what is good and what is bad.
Harmony with nature demonstrates what is good.
There can be no doubt.

 Be your own explorer , inventor an progressor
Do not fall to the weak who are bad
Rise above the hatred and hold your head high
We all owe it to ourselves to florish like nature itself

The tiger the bear the crocodile the elephant
the rattler hunt in the absence of malace.
Their power is limited by their need to survive.
They only exhibit pure power.
 When they falter they die with dignity.
To wield the sword of power in the human world
takes much maturity and clarity of purpose.
 I am no longer afraid.

we all have our own personal fight
and when we loose our strenght within ourselves
this gives our hearts and minds no purpose
 so as we are of animal instinct we will stand on our own
willingness to fight until
we falter on our last breath one last sigh

A Broken Man

Rain is falling
Thunder roars through the air
Lightening flashes through the sky like a glowing orb
Make me feel safe take me from the curb

I lay here on the street alone
No shelter to cover my tired old soul
No home to go to, no place to call my own
Give me some hope and prosperity

Give me a chance to be who i used to be
I havent always lived this life
I once had a family and a wife
But life changes so suddenly

I wish i could change the past you see
I look on as people pass by
No even a hello or a goodbye
I'm down in the gutter brushed from society

Who wants to know me
Who wants to talk to me
I see a reflection of myself in a puddle
I ask myself how did i get myself into this muddle

Given a chance i know i could change
That seems so funny seems very strange
I want to take charge control of my life
I want to be the man i was
A father and husband to my wife

Hidden Away

Cabin in the forest
all dusty and empty
Who lives in there
do you wander the floor
do you ever go outside the door

why when i call out
dont you answer me
surely your not that shy
who can you be

Theres someone in there
 i leave food by the steps
the leaves have been swept off
 the railings and shelves

Will you be okay on your own tonight ?
will you be scared and lonely?
In the dark or the light
As i turn to walk away

The curtain turns back
i can barely see you
But i think you want me to come back
As i keep walking and taking my steps

you open the door and show yourself
Your image is that of a lonely lady
why are you here all on your own
Your clothes are tattered old and worn

You reach out to me for help
I see that you want me to know
That your ready now
dont want me to go

I walk up and hold onto you
we sit and talk about what has happened
your whole life through
Your life has been hard

You have chosen this card
Of opening up and letting someone in
Your smiling now
Not living a sin

You didnt deserve your isolation
you didnt deserve a life of complication
Just know now you have a friend for ever
Dont be a stranger i will be here for you no matter what
I'm glad i met you the lady of the cabin hut

Distance Between Us

Calling out to you
where are you now
wish i knew some how
how to contact you
we really miss not been able to talk
Or wander off for a walk

When we lost contact
its was like been shot in the heart
the distance between us
made our heads tear apart

We didnt know if you were alive or dead
These horrible thoughts ran through our minds
as we lay down at night in our cosy beds
Where is he father would ask

No answers for him no reply to give
His eyes were empty with tears fought back
Poor mother we thought she would crack
As time passed by still no sign of you

Then came that wonderful call a number and all
There you were on the other end my brother my friend
I was so annoyed upset at you
But no matter how angry i felt
Hearing your voice made my heart feel warm
The upset and tormented me began to melt

So now i know your safe and well
Dont be a stranger dont wish us another farewell
We will keep you near and dear in our minds
We will keep in touch until we see you again
mind yourself brother stay healthy and well

Hardship Unknown

We sit amongst the cold damp walls
We have little food no heat
no socks or shoes
To cover our worn out feet

The bread thats on the wood chipped table
is black and mouldy
my bed ressembles that of a cattle stable
I lay my head i'm tired not able to move not able

No work no hope no where to go
The snow is thick on the ground flat floor
When we breath we see the mist from our breath
we are cold and hungry we will not sweat

School education what is that?
We dont get to go
We have to work out flat
The pain in my bones
is cutting to my skin
But i will continue my burden
with a smile and a grin

Times i wish that i could be someone else
But would i be any better
would i be writing this letter
As i  sit here in candle light
writing out my thoughts
The scenery around me makes me forget all i fought

I have love in my heart and it beats very strong
The family i have is where i belong
I'm sure things will pick up and the weather will soften
This hardship i have encountered
Hopefully wont effect my future to often

I will lay down now to sleep for the night
And as morning will break hopefully there will be some help and some light

Thursday, 15 December 2011


I have done all i can to proove myself to you
I do everything i can just to please the few
But i'am tired of been stuck to you like glue
I need to breath, to find myself
I'am not some old tatterd book
Hidden away on a shelf

Open me up and see who i'am
Let me show you what i'am made of
Then you will understand
My layers are full of hopes and dreams
my mind feels like it has been pushed to the extreme

If i could say what i feel inside
My hidden emotions
my words left unspoken
My want to connect
But all you do is correct

The walls of the house
replace the frameworks of my mind
I push them back to the place i do not hide
A smile and a nod is all i have left
You have broken me down
All i can do is frown

Your gone now
i'am here on my own
Can't be like the others
I roam my life alone
I never can speak i'am to fragile and weak
You broke me down
You replaced my life and smile with a frown
You dragged me down

Morning to Night

The dew is upon the ground
There isn't even a single sound
The cold has pushed the birds
into their nests
But not the robin red breast

He sits there upon his branch
and watches all around him
With his little eyes fixed in a glance

The morning is starting to come alive
The sun is seting in the sky
Clouds break away , make room for sunshine
Birds take flight, dogs bark, cats fight

The postman pushes letters through the door
CLAP CLAP goes the latch upon the door
Smell of toast burning
The coffee and the tea
Children geting ready for school
But not old nanny

There it is silence once more
All the madness mayhem
Clothes threw across the floor
The machine is hopping around the place
Looking in the mirror
Forgot to wash my face

Clothes are blowing on the washing line
Floors are shinning
Husband is whinning

Any chance of a cuppa tea?
Some toast maybe ? one sugar or two ?
She turns and says you may wait and see
That man is making a fool out of me

The smile on her face
says it all, she will look after him
He won't let her stall

House work done
Time to relax
He jumps out of the chair
He was forgeting to pay the tax
But he won't budge to pay it

He gives her a smile
Will you do that for me
of course she will, sure what else has she to do
only everything she thinks to herself
I wonder is there a cure for lazyness

So she hands him the brush
And asks him to sweep
The look in his eyes
He had a look on his face like he was going to weep

The thoughts of cleaning
made him feel really sick
But she was fed up of him taking the mick

So the door bangs behind her
As the brush hits the floor
And he doesn't take advantage
oh not anymore

The time passes by
it is tme for our beds
And we will do it all again tomorow
But he can do it
She is resting her head

Dragon Heart

Little Dragon by the sea shore
WHY DON'T  you come to see me anymore?
i wait and wait but your no where to be seen
Are you really there? or just a dream

I was walking along with my mum and dad
I remember feeling very sad
i cant recall why i looked out to sea
There you were staring right at me

The waves moved you closer and closer to me
My heart nearly stopped with excitment
It also made me feel a little scary
I stopped in my footsteps
they disappeared in the sand
you were right there in front of me
There up on the strand

My eyes dryed up and my sadness turned away
you changed my life forever
on that particular day
for you to come back
you understand and listen to me
and never judge me or give me any flack

I see you in my dreams and thoughts
Your always on my mind
But as im geting older now
your disappearing into the back of my head
so rest easy Dragon Boy
My heart is full of steel
I'm STRONGER now because of you
I know you are so real

Christmas Rush

Yes it is that time of year
When all around are happy and full of cheer
Christmas is upon us
We are mad to buy
 A special something for that little girl or little boy

We rush through the shops
like never before
We almost take the hindges
off the door

We look for bargains its in our blood
To get what we need because we should
We wrap and lable so carefully
Racing sround like busy bees

Get the last minute shoping
Before its to late
run to the postman
whos closing the gate

hang cards and decorations
 all around us with delight
The small children cant wait
to turn on the christmas lights

We will sit down together
 and eat at will
All lights on dont worry
about the electricity bill

We are all together united as one
eaten and been merry
having some fun
We will enjoy this occasion as intended you see
Thats what its all about
To you and to me

As night Time falls

As night falls fast
And the days close in
The light turns to glimmer switched lights
Of houses lit, warm and people crammed within

The traffic passes we hear the noise
The childrens laughter
The boustress boys
Having a laugh with their friends and a chat

Cold hands are covered by warm gloves
Head is kept heated by a wolly hat
the cold is too much
even for the the local cat

We shelter from the wind and rain
We warm ourselves
and look out at the snow flakes fall
No children playing no noise of the ball

Now that the ground is covered in snow
We will watch on looking at our children play, progress and grow
the glistening of the sparkle shines
the happiness of our hearts and minds

You have Gok the Look

Christmas is almost here
everyone is full of the holiday cheer
We may go out and have a few beers
go down the shops and buy some of Gokwans clothing gear

No matter what your body shape
His clothing will fit you perfect
No need to walk away disappointed
or try to escape for he had imagined every womans excitement

Of going out to buy something new
He doesnt want you to be upset or feel so blue
So when you put on his magic clothes
stand in front of the mirror be glad to pose

Love Me like Before

I cant wait anymore
I cant ignore
The silence in the room
I try and talk to you
I try to explore
What is on your mind
You turn towards the wall
Leaving me standing looking at my sadness in the mirror in the hall

There are obstacles in our way
There is unhappiness
Our hearts are torn
Their in disaray

As my makeup runs down my skin
You shuffle around the room
and throw back a mouthful of gin
Your footsteps are heavy and empty
Your mind is racing
with thoughts a plenty

Im sitting in a helpless heap
Surrounded by pain which cuts to deep
Hands cover my worn out eyes
tears drip down
Washing away my old disguise

Life can change in a heartbeat
The way our words can over heat
We sit down we explore
We are talking through a closed up door
I can almost feel your hand touch mine
We will fogive and forget this night in time

As i wait for you to come through the door
Hold me and love me like you did before

The Holy Angels day care centre is a day care centre for children with special needs. It helps children with Autism, Spina Bifida, downes syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Microchephaly, cornelea de longe, lissenchepaly and metachromatic leucodystraphy among many other conditions. Wea re always on the look...
As I sat in a packed pub last week, having a pint, minding my own business. I felt someone touch me from behind, at first I thought it was someone brushing past going to the bar, but then I felt a soft hand slide up my back, it came round my shoulder and felt for my buttons. I thought " This should be good" Then the ot ... her hand came round my waist, soft as silk, my buttons were undone, slowly, one by one. I never looked round but could smell expensive perfume, and the soft touch said it all. As the last button was undone I turned to face this mysterous person.................It was Enda Kenny trying to take the shirt off my back......
