1. ‘Sky between the clouds’

You are the sky between the clouds and the green fields below

Where I’d walk as far as the eyes can see to get to you

With the bright sky and hovering clouds

I dream of you and I reaching out to see the beauty

Of the view and of course you

With the camera in my hand

I live life through the lens

Hoping that you too see the view that inspires me

Either standing by my side

Or in front of the lens

To match your beauty

Against the endless view of beauty in front of us

Putting the camera down

The eye captures more detail

More light and more beauty

For the mind to remember and adore

As the sky between clouds captures our eye

I look to you for more beauty and inspiration

More than any view ever could do.

2. ‘A heartfelt plea to my mind’

A heartfelt plea to my mind

Please just let the thoughts go and be free

Running thoughts become faster

Harder to chase down and decipher

The longer and faster they run

The mind fatigues and stumbles over many, many thoughts

Add some poison and the plea is free

Seeping deeper the thoughts stop running

Yet this is not for long

As the poison breaks down and leaves the mind

Hydrated and ready

The thoughts start to run once again

Not before long they're fully up to speed

Never stopping and always reminding the heart

Of how it felt, feels and the farewells

That play upon the rhythm of the heart

A heartfelt plea to my mind

Please just let the thoughts go and be free

As there are many other thoughts

That I need to run for

A temporary poisoned thought may go for a while

However a thought will always be there

And there they are to be dealt with and let them free for good.

3. ‘23:42’


Age or time

Doesn’t matter

If our hearts combine

Then that is our

Age and time


4. Interlude 1 - ‘Equation of love’

There’s no equation to show how much I love you

But somehow I’ll solve it anyway.

5. ‘You saved my heart, Without even knowing’

With the words you said

And the actions to match

You saved my heart

Without even knowing

My heart wanted something

That it thought it believed in

But with your words

You brought new thoughts

To which saved my heart

You may never know

That you saved my heart

But I always will

Therefore forever grateful

Without even knowing

You saved my heart

Therefore I imagine

What could we do

If you knew you’d saved it

What would my heart

Have to say about you

If you knew everything?

6. ‘A summer's dream’

A summer's dream

Caught early autumn

When the leaves started to fall

As the cool calm air awoke the day

Out of the low sunshine filled sky

You walked into my vision

I never envisaged what impact you'd have

Upon my thoughts and on my day

But I have to say the heart skipped and jumped

Pumped a little faster when I thought of you

A summer's dream

But no time between seasons

To see the change in view

As time stood still

With the sky filled with sunshine blue skies

Being as glorious as you

The summer sight became autumn's wish

A clear beautiful you to match the day

A favourite season for a favourite heart

A summer’s dream came finally true

And it was you that caught my eye

When the leaves started to fall.

7. ‘Gain an hour’

Gain a minute and I take a moment to think

Of what is now and where to go from here

Gain an hour and I could write you a letter

Penning thoughts of you and I

Gain a day and I could take you out by my side

Talking of my thoughts and listen intently to your world

Gain a week and a half and we could fly away

To find a part of the world neither of us have seen

(Explore our surroundings as well as our hearts)

Gain a year and we could see each other in every season

From the summer sun through the winter's winds

(As the temperature plummets maybe I could hold you close

Keeping you warm as the winds wail and sunshine fades)

Gain a lifetime and I could show you the love I have for life and for you

A lifetime to care and love through everything that life may bring

(A chance to take control of our fates and make something truly great)

Gain a world and we could fill it with our thoughts and hearts desires

All from a minute to a lifetime it all takes time.

8. ‘I held her heart in my hands’

I held her heart in my hands

caring for it more than my own

I would have done anything

to protect the heart from any pain

Her heart beat softly, and quietly and confidently

But it was strong

Stronger than you might have thought

She didn't always think that her own heart was strong

Yet I knew it was as I’d seen the strength and power

It was the strongest heart I knew

And couldn’t just couldn’t say that

If it wasn’t true

The only way I could show it was the truth

Is to put my hand upon her chest

Look into her eyes

And tell her she needs to believe in herself so much more

And the eyes that looked back at me

Had a glint of belief

I held her heart in my hands

Not knowing if I could hold what was this precious

With the care and stability that it deserves

I only had to start believing in myself

And remember it was all for you

(It has always ever been for you)

The heart beating softly for her sensitive smile

Yet strength was there undoubtedly I know

The hand upon her chest hearing her heart

Looking into her eyes I could only fall



In love

With her as she smiled and waved

And captured my heart within her eyes

She had the strongest heart I knew

And all I could do was tell her so.

9. ‘She's divine and on my mind’

Spying with my eye

She's divine and on my mind

Should you be there at all (I may say)

Sitting upon my thoughts

Speaking gently to my heart

Stroking her hair behind the ear

Sensitively I sit seduced by you

Staring and glaring into your eyes

Star struck and lost in your beauty

S/he holding hands softly

Spine tingles as one hand strokes another

Strings of the heart are plucked away

Sounds of the heart are starting to play

String by string a song is written and performed

Sorry is the eye for not smiling earlier

Smiling as bright as the sun shines

Sun setting upon my heart and mind

Soothing the world we have captured a moment

Sorry is the eye from you and I not glancing sooner

Subtle are the thoughts

Soaked with lust I must pause for a moment

Spying with my eye once more

She's divine and on my mind.

10. ‘P’

A perfect poet I'd be

Picking pictures

Of perfect places

With pursuing eyes

Penetrating my heart

Pricking my skin

To make my persistence

A little more persuading

Particularly for you

Partially for no one else

All because my pulsating heart

Pulses for you


11. Interlude 2 - ‘Dance’

Turn the music up

And let’s fucking dance.

12. ‘The sea let me sail’

The sea swept away the tears

Dispersing in the waves

They were soon forgotten

With memories sinking below the surface

The sand between the toes started to hurt

After mile upon mile walking across the beach

Only find that you were not there

The tears that fell were soon swept away

Wave after wave I wandered with no clue

It was only when I stopped and stared

Across the surface of the sea

With the sunlight glaring

I saw a way to make new memories

I set sail across the sea

Over waves that washed away old memories

Into the sunset I sailed

To find new lands, minds and hearts

The sea swept after I wept

The sea let me sail over sunken memories

The sea saved my soul.

13. ‘With the heart pounding’

With the heart pounding

I frowned

As it was sounding

Like the heart had lost

But it had found something worth

Much more than frowning about

Thump thump went the heart

Deep inside the chest

A touch of the hand

And the rib cage nears explosion

The heart had lost nothing

But gained more ideas and feelings

Than ever before

When next to you

I never knew this would be a feeling

Down at the bottom of my heart

Your eyes had awoken a different rhythm

One in time with the heart

Giving an extra lease of life

Nothing was lost but everything gained

The heart became stronger

With more rhythm and excitement

Deep within the heart and mind.

14. ‘You know how to make me feel alright inside’

Making you laugh I stand back and think

Of how wonderful you are

Hoping that the laughter doesn’t never end

In the moment of silence that prevails

I ponder something to say that will make you smile

(Or at least something that I think will)

Yet the silence is never awkward or unforgiving

It’s just time to be in the presence of you and I

No heart is calmer when next to you

Confidence grows and shows when speaking

The wonder that you are makes my heart wild

But I keep it all inside my dancing mind

I don’t need to tell you how I feel

As you can already tell

And in a glimpse of your smile

You know how to make me feel alright inside.

15. ‘Some voices’

Some voices are louder than others

From all directions

Inside and outside of the mind

Find the right voice

For the right situation

The voice that is the loudest

May not be the right voice to hear

So choose wisely

To which voice to listen to

And where from.

16. ‘A dream so real’

I dreamt of losing you

As real as the dream was

I awoke to think

That you weren't there

And everything was real

As it was in the dream

In that moment

My heart




Felt relieved

And lived once more

How a dream can make the heart think

If you weren’t there

Then what would I feel

Never mind what I would do

A dream so real

I hope it never is.
