When I Write

I write when I’m on the train
When Albert Hammond sings and
When glimpses of you appear
In the ghosts of the shadows of others

Just for a moment be close to you
Pretend that I’m still holding you

And perhaps someday
When we’re done chasing our fantasies

Maybe love will bring you back to me.

Anew

You feel like
the warm tingles of a relationship that has gone by
with liquorice hints of something that once
was altogether beautiful and captivating;

It is not easy to get used to someone new;
similarly difficult to get used to someplace new.

But promising it is:
the telltale signs are all there amongst
the paintings on the wall and the music
playing in the backdrop.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!

It’s the most beautiful time of the year
Where sleigh bells ring (are you listening?)
And Santa Claus is coming to town

We’re all simply
Having a wonderful Christmas time
(and having a cup of cheer!)

So say hello to friends you know (and don’t know!)

Have a holly jolly Christmas! (War is over)

Go rockin’around the Christmas tree
and visit the Winter Wonderland

Well let it snow let it snow!
Deck the halls with boughs of holly!

Silver bells and blue Christmas?
Surely the angels we have heard on high!

O come all ye faithful
I wish everyday could be like Christmas

Have yourself a merry little Christmas!
