Park After Dark

I watched the sun go down on the park
And then I walked back until well after dark.
And those city lights relentlessly blazed
And the sights and the sounds of the city amazed.
I smiled at strangers who tried to sell things
With the feeling that peace and happiness brings.
I'm happier now than I could ever have planned
For when I looked, she was still holding my hand.

The Elephant in the Room

If you're talking to your lover
And he's being very nice
But you notice while he's talking
That he's got a bit of rice
Stuck between his molars
Can I give you some advice?
You're heart will never go boom
When there's an elephant in the room

If you see your best friend walking
From the ladies' bathroom stall
There's toilet paper stuck on her
And she's heading down the hall
You think that you should tell her
But you just don't have the gaul
You better beat it with a broom
'Cause there's an elephant in the room

So say you're at the office
And your presentation's due
You know there's something different
'Cause no one looks at you
It seems your fly is open
And you haven't got a clue
Won't someone speak up soon?
'Cause there's an elephant in the room

Sweet Memory

Early morning, rise and shine
The sun is up, the weather's fine
Drink your tea, get out of bed
Let the fresh air fill your head
Let's take a walk into the park
We'll laugh and talk until it's dark
And when we go back home to sleep
We'll have this sweet memory to keep

Bright Texas Eyes

It was one of those warm Texas nights
When into my world she walked
In front of a blaze of street lights
Like an angel, she glowed as I gawked.

Overhead hung Jupiter and Mars
But they simply could not compete,
For her eyes shone brighter than stars.
Moved, I fell to her feet.

Of her eyes, I can't say enough...
The most brilliant that I'd ever seen!
To say they were brown is too rough...
More hazel with a slight touch of green.

And disheveled and long was her hair.
As she slowly gazed down at my face,
She looked like she just didn't care
For my pitiful stumble from grace.

She stood there and stared at the dark
And sighed an impatient sigh.
Then she continued her way to the park
Without even saying goodbye.

Now she haunts each of my dreams,
As I remember those clear southern skies
And fate is too cruel, it seems...
How I long for those bright Texas eyes!

The Sun Always Rises

No matter how dark things get, the sun always rises to give new hope, new perspective, new joy.  Unless you're in deep space.  Then you're screwed.

Mirage

I thought that maybe I had seen
Amongst the clouds and in between
A drop of vibrance for my eyes
Amidst the stormy summer skies
I rushed to find the source of it
Raced down the hill until I hit
The water's edge and stretched to see
The colours that appeared to be
But the road's mirage had teased again
What I thought was rainbow was simply rain
The greys and blacks return to me
As if to tell me, mockingly
The time has not yet come to heal
There's more heartache for me to feel

It is with great heartbreak and sorrow that I report the passing of my wife, +Bibi Pettypiece, a week ago today.  She lost a hard-fought 20-month long battle with ovarian cancer.

When I met her in 1982 on a Greyhound bus, she was sad at the loss of her brother, but she was happy ever since.  Always full of love and joy...even when she was in great pain.

She was the kind of person you instantly loved the moment you met her.  She loved life, she loved the world and she loved the people in it.  She left a hole that can never be filled.

Heartfelt thanks for all the support to myself and our children from people locally and from around the world.

Rest peacefully, Cathy.  :-(

Happy New Year

Although the last of the fireworks had finally died away,
The fireworks between our hearts still burst and danced and played.
The variety of colours were a wonder and delight
As we danced alone together into the fading light.
It's hard to tell the difference between the roman candles' boom
And the sound that my heart made when you walked into the room.
Your elegance and beauty brought a tear into my eye.
It didn't seem that long before we had to say goodbye.
We raised our glasses to our love with golden bubbly cheer.
I hope you feel the same as I and we meet again next year.

New Horizons

So long, my travelling friend, I'm glad you came to stay
It's too bad you can't stay longer and live so far away
Don't despair at leaving, you know there'll come a day
That we will meet and hug and eat and drink and talk and laugh and play

So long, my wandering friend, be careful how you go
I know that you'll be very kind to everyone you know
Don't stop seeking new horizons that help to make you grow
And balance your life's challenges and let the love inside you flow
