Inexorably, minutes tick by
And time seeps slowly past
Like the trickle through the crack in the dam
Hardly noticed until
Little Silver Penguin On A Chain
I cleared out the attic today and found a box, sealed with tape
It wasn’t marked and I couldn’t remember what was inside
I’ve carried it around for many years
Moving from one place to another, as my life has changed.
Just Another Day
Six am the alarm breaks shrilly into the scattered edges of a dream
And the grey dawn peeks through a tattered gap in the curtain
Fumbling for a moment, reaching for the shattered start
Of yet another battered day.
Just a touch ….. the promise of a touch
Just a certain kind of look
Just a way of saying something
A gentle aside, a soft glance…..
Blue For You
Oh Baby! its been a long long time
I’ve been missing that love of mine
And it feels like only yesterday
That my darlin’ just slipped away
