Truth or dare, do you remember that?

Truth or dare, do you remember that?

Pumpkins alight and scary bats

Spiders crawling, creeping at night

Trick or treat, what a delight

Egging houses, toilet paper thrown

Grumpy people, cleaning their homes

Sweets oh so tasty, making us sick

Wanting for more, what made us tick

Dared by our friends to knock at the door

The old scary man, with all his lore

Opens up and shouts “trick or treat!”

But stops us, before we can speak

“I’ve got a dare, for all you tykes”

Come closer…….. BOO! WHAT A FRIGHT!

To be inspired

It takes a lot to be inspired, to leave your cosy shell

Some people find it easy, for others it is hell

Not knowing what to do, to let the words flow

How to get them out there, which way to go?

Put them down on paper, or trace them in your head

Sing em in the shower, or when you go to bed

Now isn’t that better? Bit of fun for the brain

It shouldn’t be a chore, let’s do this again?

Beautiful moon

.

Why would you watch me?

I know you better than most

Although everyone gazes at you

I will not be thrown

.

We have had many a momemt

Just you and I

Your beauty overwealms me

Brings tears to my eyes

.

You can be blinding

As you light the path ahead

There is nowhere else to be

Nowhere else instead

.

As the stars vy for your attention

Flashing bright and true

You stare right through them

As constantly you do

.

Will you love me forever?

If I never look away?

Tell me you’ll never leave me

And you’ll always stay

The peace of the park

.

Oh I love the peace when we come to the park

I can hear the birds sing and lark

Watching the joggers as they pass on by

Reflecting on life, not asking why

I love the sun as it warms me up

Not too hot, its just enough

As I watch the water rippling in the sun

Kids feeding ducks, having fun

I stop to breathe and forget it all

Before I leave heaven and I fall
