1. ‘Rumbling, Tumbling Hills’


Tumbling Hills

For miles

Walking over stiles

No wall

Stands too tall

While walking

And talking

Over rumbling

Tumbling hills

Through trees

I fall on my knees

But not stopping me

Getting to thee

Over fields

Through valleys

Past waterfalls

Each step

A view

Of beauty

Lakes like mirrors

The hills

Silent and still

A moment

To reflect

Up hills

Or mighty mountains

My memories

Created here

Are my muse

Forever a muse.

2. ‘i wanna get lost with you’

i wanna get lost with you

across the fields and over the hills

run freely to be who we are

love each other like we have always have

getting lost with you

would be like finding a whole new world

where we could explore our minds

and everything that we have together

i wanna get lost with you

as i simply adore you

finding you attractive in every way

getting lost with you

i’d show you how much i love you

and why you are so close to my heart

i wanna get lost with you

through valleys and lanes

where no phone signal could reach us

with only our voices to speak

and the views of rolling hills to admire

getting lost with you

could not last long enough

and it is you and your heart

that makes me feel alive

i wanna get lost with you

starting on the path through the hills

over streams to the where our cottage resides

where no one could find us

getting lost with you

we become closer than ever

with the real world a million miles away

and all we have is our souls to survive

i wanna get lost with you

because you are beautiful

and in the chaotic world we live

getting lost with you

is all i ever want to do with you.

3. ‘Interlude 1’

Take me to the sky

where I can fall

forever more

into your arms

or just hit the floor

4. ‘Given the day’

Given the day

I would walk

Over Churchdown Hill

through to Crickley HIll

clambering over the Peak

rambling to Coopers Hill

rolling down to Upton

to get up to Robinswood

before the light of day

fades away

Given the day

I would enjoy every mile

of every style

just because the green fields

are endless

from here to anywhere

Given the day

I’d walk every hill

as long as there is light

to see every view

from every angle

that each unique hill gives

Given the day

before the light fades away

over Robinswoods

through Upton

I’d ramble and scramble

up and over Coopers Hill

Where I’d see the Peak

Before walking over fields

past reservoirs

and animal filled fields

onto Crickley hill

before trudging to Churchdown

and heading home from the Hill

All this

if I was given the day.

5. ‘Interlude 2’

You're beautiful

in every way

for if I say

let's run today

so tomorrow

we wake up


in each other’s arms

what would you say?

6. ‘Colour between seasons’

The green grew all summer long

from the rain and the sunshine

became a view of lush green trees

As the season starts to change

the trees leaves start to regress

from green they fade into yellow

It’s that time of year again

when trees and views

change colour and depth

We see another summer go by

and winter will arrive in any given day

however the colour between seasons

gives us a little more time

for us to see what the summer grew

albeit in a different colour, light and view

As I watch the change in view

day by day and week by week

between seasons of summer and winter

the summer grew the beauty we see now

the winter will hide what we have seen

providing a different scene of the trees

Until the sunlight provides warmth again

and green returns to the trees bare arms

from buds yet to grow through winter they will

the colour between seasons

is something to watch and admire.

7. ‘Interlude 3’

All over the water

Lay the memories of you

Spread across the surface

As the tide gently takes them away

8. ‘Love as high as the clouds’

When I'm close to you

I don't feel like I'm falling

My heart remains calm

And together we hold hands

We could be as high as the clouds

Higher than the mountains beside us

But vertigo will stop me being next to you

Even if the world decided to fall away

We would be holding hands

Staying stronger and higher

Than we ever imagined we would

Each time we step side by side

Our love grows and becomes something

Something so strong the higher it goes

So it feels sometimes that it is out of this world

Yet somehow our feet are firmly on the ground

All from when I’m close to you

I don't feel like I'm falling

Yet falling more and more in love with you.

9. ‘Interlude 4’

10. ‘Coffee in the window’

We sat and we drank coffee in the window

Nervous laughter pursued but smiles were aplenty

We spoke of our day and all that worried us

By the window we sat

Seeing the world go by as we sipped our drink

While you looked out

I looked at you

With fondness and butterflies in my stomach

There was something about you

Something so wonderful my mind thought and thought

A table for two was all we needed

Watching the world go by

With us side by side we shared our thoughts

As time flew by it did not matter

I worried more about drinking coffee

I didn't even like coffee

Even if it was a mocha

But I drank it anyway

As I didn't want to sour the moment

The table by the window remains there to this day

And one day we will sit there once again

To talk about where our lives have lead us

And to get to know about you once again

But the next time a hot chocolate will do

Because the mocha never grew on me

Yet you always grew on me.

11. ‘Interlude 5’

12. ‘Hold back the heart’

I have to hold back the heart

as if I let it go

it would tell you everything

that I feel for you

My heart presses against the chest

and in turn presses against my hands

I must not let it loose

as what it holds the world would see

It’s depth has been revealed before

but to no avail

so quickly pressed back into the chest

Holding back the heart causes it to hurt

as what it beats for is you

and you are what makes it beat

The more it presses

the more tired the hands become

and so I feel I should let it go

and what comes from its freedom

will be what it will be.

13. ‘you became’

you became

my heart

and in turn

part of me

you became

my dream

where i stood

beside you

you became

the same

feelings and thoughts

as if

you were

with me

you became

more and more

than i could ever know

within in my heart

you became

my other half

bridging the gap

that you

have always been able

to build a bridge to connect us

you became

part of me

to help me

become me

and then

became us.

14. ‘Interlude 6’

15. ‘Goole’

The green back door

grandma stood

with pouting lips

a welcoming kiss

back in once again in Goole

Vividly remembering the view from the dinner table

I could see the playing field

through the net curtains

As the grown ups talked and talked

all I wanted to do

is play in the school playing field

to play in the park

to play football with grandad, dad and brothers

Grandma’s cooking was Yorkshire at it’s best

the smell of Yorkshire pudding and cabbage

a smell to treasure forever more

but the cabbage I could never taste (even to this day)

yet it was just the best food in Yorkshire

An open fire place filled with embers and soot

no need for a TV as this entertained all evening

I was simply fascinated by fire as it roared

Out to the garden to get more coal and logs for the fire

grandad chopping logs and shovelling coal

it was quite the excitement to see

The garden was natural and long

the birdbath stood at the end of the path

and I wonder now where it ended up

a beautiful garden it always was

As everyone became older

I still remained the young one

When age grew for grandad

his eyes became tired

and the mind always remembering the war

he was in a place once more

where he fought for us all

Fond distant memories

of so much more.

16. ‘By the blue door’

By the blue door

we stood

and said goodbye

with tears

in our eyes

We stood

by the blue door

where we parted ways

Neither knowing

when or if

we’d see each other again

By the blue door

I remembered the day

I’d met you

on the beach

as each memory

flew through my mind

before we went our ways

I remember you more

but the blue door

where we stood that day

is the prominent moment

from when I saw you last

As I turn away

from you

and the blue door

I wished I looked back

just once more

By the blue door

we stood

and said goodbye

yet I still don’t know

when I will see you

once again.

17. ‘Interlude 7’


sober mind going in

lost mind leaving

somewhere in between

i thought



and believed

in my dreams

18. ‘By the Sea’

By the sea

A refugee

Lay bare

A life

Needlessly taken

By the sea

A life ended

And a body picked up

With a heavy heart

By the sea

We see the cost

Of what people do

To flee what was

Once their home

As we look

At our posh tv screens

In our warmth filled homes

We stop to think

About the human misery

Yet we never think

That this would happen to us

So how do we let this

Happen to them.
