It’s all about the view

Sunset over Sydney


As I sit looking out over Sydney Harbour it occurred to me that holidays are all about the view.  No travel is complete without something nice to see, weather that be the water scape in front of me or the smiles on loved ones faces when you reconnect after time apart.

Sydney Harbour

For me countless yachts are dancing across the water with the occasional speedboat cutting though them like a young dog just let off the lead.  More melodic are the larger ships plodding their steady passage, taking on the role of the elder statesman in this dance and as I watch the light changing and the vibrancy of the seen evolve, its clear how lucky I am. 

Sydney really is a beautiful city, warm and enticing even when the weather breaks and storms roll in from the west.

To be able to sit in peace and quiet and absorb this panorama is really one of life pleasures and I would highly recommend a visit to Australia at least once in a lifetime.

Blood, Sweat Tears

There’s no more blood or sweat or tears

We’ve built our home and children gone

Ahead a life less stress more joy

Toward a sunset and happy times

Good food laughter and fine wine

And love shared time together 

She looks like Home

She looked like home, his happy place, her smile the key to his front door, he holds her tight for now he’s home, his love to last forever more, and home the place that fills his heart, gap closed and never again apart, her smile it locks his heart a new and in her eyes her love is true, together now at last, their home and future bright secure, there love built on foundations of trust behind their own front door

Four Feet

Four feet walk along the sand toward a golden time, waves lapping around the feet each step together strong and sound.

Two feet stumble and an arm takes hold, supporting and guiding on, two feet falter, can’t go on, so stops then rest then sleep does come.

Now along and lost two feet shuffle on, not sure the way to go. Empty alone and full of grief wave are the only sound

But warm sunlight and lapping waves, guide those feet again, onward bound, until those feet will rest and sleep alone, and then just waves and sand abound, the journey now complete, and love was there and faith and care, four feet on the beach

Renewed Love

A dark knot, eats away at love, doubts and worries many, and then we talk and all is right, my world now complete tonight, and smiles and joy and happiness and endless love and more, for all I want and all I need, that look that I adore, and her love and her time, and the fact that she is mine, and I am hers our hearts entwined, our love true till the end of time, that knot untied, our love renewed, and I tell her, I love you

All my Darkness

All my darkness I share with you, to make our future shine, the happiest day I’ve ever had is every day your mine, but turn that around and think it through my focus is on you, your happiness and love I need to make my dreams come true

No Son for me

To my son that never was, those moments that never came, yes my girls are all my world but that is never quite the same.

Rough and tumble that never was, play fights, man time just because, fixing cars, and dirty knees, us in trouble, mum not pleased

No watching him become a man, no watching him as he grows, become a dad lost and gone, not for me those special times, lost love and me now reconciled, maybe one day a grandson comes

In time my love

In time my love I’ve come to know that two is better than one

To have you close and in my arms, a life I need to know

To hear you laugh, to see you smile, my world complete with you

I was once one, then two, complete and whole with you

No Medal for Me

No medal for me

No service given

I’ll never go to war

But others have fought for me

Have serviced for me

Protected me and given me a life I take for granted

So thanks to you, those brave and true

From a great full nation

Remember me with love

Don’t send me prayers now that I’m gone.

Don’t shed a tear, or anything more.

But remember me when you laugh and have fun.

Remember my smile and my hugs and my love.

And I’ll always be there in your heart and in love.
