Happy new year

Happy new year to all
Away with the old
In with hope and the new and possibilities
A time to be bold

She has Superpowers

She’s hidden from view
Such that no one can see
The brilliance and light
That’s apparent to me
The world taught her to hide
She dons a daily disguise
To keep a lid on her fire
But I’ve looked into her eyes
Locked on so she can’t
Pass for one of the masses
She has superpowers, just look
Past her Clark Kent glasses
In spite of little support
And no one having belief
She’s developed and grown
Her own commander in chief
She’s marshalling her forces
She’s cresting the wave
She can and she will
This is her world to save

My Heart’s Yet to Rise

A morning of waking
But my heart’s yet to rise
My day can only start
When she opens her eyes
When the texts start to flow
And my mind is at ease
Knowing she’s safe
And has all that she needs

No Longer Frayed

Senses heightened
Feelings flower
Life in technicolour
All due to her.

Longing to hold hands
Wanting to touch her skin
Craving her company
To sate desires within

Lives starting to enfold
Loose ends no longer frayed
Both woven into one whole
Strong, together remade

Being yourself, being in love
Belonging while far apart
Hope for the near future
Excited for US to restart

Christmas Day

It was the day of celebration
And throughout the land
Parents awoke with the hope
It would all go to plan
That the kids would open presents
And be filled so full of glee
That it would embed Christmas spirit
All their lives, for eternity
That loved ones would make the journey
That the lunch would taste okay
That all would be together
On their greatest Christmas Day

The Birgadier

A life well lived
Gentleman, brigadier
Buccaneer, cavalier
Whiskers white
Hair as if in flight
Stories from afar
Drinks at the bar
A smile or salute
Fortitude, resolute
Stands for all to see
Timeless chivalry
In military brigade
Of manners made

Feeling Christmassy

Are you hanging up your stockings
Are you decorating your tree
Are you worried about presents
Then you’ll be feeling Christmassy

Have you sent a million letters
Have you ordered a mega turkey
Have you plans to see your parents
Then you’ll be feeling Christmassy

When you gather around your parcels
Kids and adults, will all agree
After a night when Santa visits
You can’t help but feel Christmassy

When the dramas all unfolded
Gifts and tales exchanged lovingly
Look at the memories you’ve created
The warm glow of being Christmassy

I Choose Love

I love you
I know I can let you in
Allow you access to all of me
Have your thoughts and words
Percolate into my inner being
And still be safe
More than safe
You infuse me with energy
Confidence that I can
Belief that we will
In you I choose love
With you a better life


The crash
Knocked off balance

From hidden spot
Corner concealed
Has come a hammer blow
And I’m forced to yield

She’s said we are done
She says “you don’t have time”
To have her in my life
Time enough to make her mine

Hours of texting
Round and round
Now she’s said fuck off
And gone to ground

Heart ripped
Mind a mess
Cannot think
Can’t see what’s best

Don’t want to give up
Do feel what I’ve felt
But should I wait
For this ice age to melt?

There’s rage and fire
Hate and upset
She’s hurting like me
This cannot end, not yet

Falling end over end
Out of control
Don’t know what to do
To make her feel whole


With trust comes happiness
If trust is rewarded with loyalty
Believe in those close to you
Invest love and respect in them
Communicate difficulties
Make good the poor patterns of the past
Hold hands intimately and give
Let go the learned behaviour
Forget distrust for the trusted
Accept that pain may follow
But to trust is to connect
Connecting leading to belonging
Community, family, love
