I felt I had known you all my life
Now the lights are off, exit stage right
Age was kind to you
But there will be no show tonight

The gift you shared
I will always treasure
You pulled at my heartstrings
I shared in your sadness, you gave me moments of pleasure

Your sounds, words, images, smile
Magical, genius, fabulous, style

This is for you
This is for you

We all have flaws, life can be fragile
But we were with you on the spaceship
The flight to the stars
What a trip

Inspirational
You fashioned a way to bring people together
Your craft, legacy
Will be on screen, search forever

Your sounds, words, images, smile
Magical, genius, fabulous, style

This is for you
This is for you

Your light shines on
In wonderful technicolour every day
You were larger than life
Your star will not fade away

Your sounds, words, images, smile
Magical, genius, fabulous, style

Thank you, this is for you
Thank you, this is for you

This Is For You

Oh My God

I cannot help it
I get so exasperated
Noise annoys
Silence is so underrated

I have no idea why I feel this way
No reason to complain
Is living in a bubble
Driving me insane

Oh My God

What is it, what is it
Just deal with it, deal with it

I have no idea, what it is,
Why I love you
So annoying, exasperated,
It’s amazing I still do

Oh My God

Breathing noises
Beyond what you need to stay alive
Sigh for no reason
Plug my earphones in to survive

Don’t listen to me
Ask me to repeat what I just said
State the obvious
The voice in my head……says

Oh My God

What is it, what is it
Just deal with it, deal with it

I have no idea, what it is,
Why I love you
So annoying, exasperated,
It’s amazing I still do

Oh my god

Want to talk, what is it
When I am watching a show
Does it have to be now
What do they need to know

Press Pause
I forgot
I have no idea what to say
And lost the plot

Oh my god

What is it, what is it
Just deal with it, deal with it

I have no idea, what it is,
Why I love you
So annoying, exasperated,
It’s amazing I still do

What Is It

The alarm goes off, this is us
The latest news, spirits waining
Blackout blinds keep the light out
Overnight it has been raining

I have a roof, a window, so thankful, I will be alright
Unbroken, windproof and watertight

I have woken up
It is time to embrace the day
There are others that didn’t make it
For them I pray

Flowers left on the spot they fell
Outpourings of grief and sorrow
I need to make the most of today
And hold on to tomorrow

I have a roof, a window, so thankful, I will be alright
Unbroken, windproof and watertight

I have woken up
Sheltered from the storm
While under arches, in doorways
Cardboard and blankets keep others warm

There are acts of kindness
Maybe moments when it can be fun
They get to see all the glorious sunrises and sunsets
But are a bank card away from being someone

A roof over their heads to keep them dry
Through the rough night
Lost love, mistakes, addictions, injustices
The window to their souls will be the guiding light

A roof, a window, so thankful, I will be alright
Unbroken, windproof and watertight

I have woken up
I reach out and there is someone there
But such is the speed of loneliness
It helps to know there are so many out there who care

Life is a gift to treasure
It may not always feel that way
Hold on for tomorrow
Make the most of every day

Safe and sound in the moment, so thankful, we will be alright
Unbroken, windproof and watertight

Unbroken, Windproof and Watertight

Unbroken, Windproof and Watertight

There is a light to guide me home
In stormy weather, so good to be back
Water crashes against the rocks, raw power
I head along the single track

The ocean smashes into stacks and arches
Black cliffs guard the coast
You took an axe to the rockface
Viking ghost

The roaring silence, timeless
Wonderful, unstable, my Eshaness

I keep away from the edge, shrouded in fog
Winds icy, so strong
Nature in all its glory, pictures in my mind
The nest where I belong

My life lies in the ruins
Layers of lava and ash in its day
Waves swirling into sea and sky
Takes my breath away

The roaring silence, limitless
Stunning, awe inspiring, my Eshaness

I find myself in this wild, remote place
Nature bonds us together
Steep edges, the wind blows our worries away
Stand back, we could stay here forever

The roaring silence, fearless
Spectacular, remarkable, my Eshaness

Eshaness

Transfixed in the moment, pleasure and pain
Reach out and touch, you may never see them again
Drowning in the noise, blinded by the light
Hanging on their every move and word, out of sight

Are they real, or just a player?
All illusion, stage clothes and hair

They can see inside your soul, so beautiful, a work of art
In their flamboyant hour, playing with your heart
They are the sun and the moon, you are wishing on a star
You hold on to hope, imagine they know who you are

And when you meet them, what would you do
You are not asking them to love you
Just be true

Are they real, or just a player?
All illusion, stage clothes and hair

Backstage introduction, star struck, behind the music
Lost for words, ramble on, feeling sick
This is real, it is not all illusion and fame
They ask how you are and say your name

Say Your Name

The beautiful sky
Red, heart shaped lights,
A rollercoaster of thrills and spills
Friendship, love, mulled wine
Hot drinks and winter chills

Cheers to friendship
Raise a glass to everyone here
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas
Happy New Year

Sparkling diamond covered Christmas tree
Magical, colours light up the night
Fireworks explode across the sky
Fires with red hot charcoal
Warming hands and face, you and I

Cheers to friendship
Raise a glass to those we wish were here
Wish that special someone a Merry Christmas
Happy New Year

Moments of pleasure
Childhood memories, tears and smiles
Snowflakes drifting in the star filled sky
Gifts of joy and hope
Candles light the way for you and I

Cheers to friendship
Raise a glass to friends and family, far and near
Wishing the world a Merry Christmas
Happy New Year

Love is all around
Snow covered nights
It’s a wonderful, wonderful place
Red, heart shaped lights

Red Hearts

Love yourself just the way you are
No need to be scared or pretend
You are not there to be judged
Be you, my friend

The beautiful, mirror image
Smile through the crack
A masterpiece, work in progress
There is no turning back

Look for your rainbow
Let it guide you and follow
Through dark clouds and sunshine
Into tomorrow

Let your strength and courage define you
Shine bright
Stumble, mend and heal what hurts
You will be alright

When you feel there is no hope, you are lost
It is written across your arms and face
Be kind on yourself, let others be kind
You will find your identity and place

Look for your rainbow
Let it guide you and follow
Through dark clouds and sunshine
Into tomorrow

There is no need to be ashamed of anything
We all learn, you are not alone
Make the connection
Pick up the phone

Take care, look ahead, learn from the past
Mindfulness
Will help you through a moment
And you will find pleasure and happiness

Love yourself just the way you are
No need to be scared or pretend
You are not there to be judged
Be you, my friend

Look for your rainbow
Let it guide you and follow
Through dark clouds and sunshine
Into tomorrow

It’s in the can, they already know how it will end
Life or death, lover or a friend

It’s all over social media, has everyone lost the plot
How twisted they are, to give it away or not

Spoil-her, spoil-him, spoil-them, spoiler alert
The show must go on
Watch out, the warning signs, before someone gets hurt

A film you are dying to see, you never read the book
Dreaming of a happy ending, excited, too afraid to look

Spoil-her, spoil-him, spoil-them, spoiler alert
The show must go on
Watch out, the warning signs, before someone gets hurt

At the end of the story, who committed the crime
Will they ruin the climax, the series killer has you this time

No plans to catch up, this episode of your life is done
It’s a turning point, you got the message, spoiled the fun

Spoil-her, spoil-him, spoil-them, spoiler alert
The show must go on
Watch out, the warning signs, before someone gets hurt

All will be revealed
All will be revealed
Your fate is sealed

About Me

Bio

I have listened to music all my life and written poetry from an early age. When I consider what my favourite ever songs are it will normally be a combination of the melody and lyrics. How I remember the words of 000s of songs I will never know, when I often cannot remember why I walked into a room. Lyrics have always fascinated me - telling stories, sharing emotions. To see words of mine be part of someone's favourite song ever would be a dream come true.

CV/History

I had a poetry book published on 9 October 2020 - ‘Awake’. The central theme is perspectives, trying to help a loved work cope and get through a mental illness. I recently completed a university degree - criminology and psychology.
