OCEAN DEEP

THERE WAS A SONG I HEARD

JUST THE OTHER DAY

I PUT CLIFF ON YOUTUBE

AND LISTENED TO IT PLAY

 

FROM MY CRADLE TO MY GRAVE

MUSIC  I WILL HEAR

BUT NO OTHER BETTER SONG

TELLS IT SO SINCERE

 

THE WORDS CLIFF SANG

TOUCHED ME TO THE CORE

CLANDESTINE BEAUTY

THEY SWEEP YOU AND ENTHRALL

 

THEN I FOUND THE POET

WHO WROTE THIS WORK OF ART

AN UNKNOWN SOLDIER

IN MEN HE STANDS APART

 

THE BEST SONG OF MY LIFETIME

TO EVER REACH MY EARS

BUT ALAS I KNOW SO WELL

IT TELLS OF ALL MY FEARS

 

IF GOD SENT RAINDROPS DOWN AS PEARLS

AND WE ALL HAD EQUAL PRIDE

MEN MIGHT CREATE UMBRELLAS OF STEEL

UNDER WHICH WE ALL COULD HIDE

 

BUT GOD SENT RAINDROPS TO DISSOLVE

TO GROW THE ROSE SO SWEET

AND GAVE ONE MAN THE TALENT

TO WRITE OCEAN DEEP!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TENDER LETTERS

Solitary seagull on floodlight high

I see you as I look up to the sky

Solitary seagull when you come to land

Please take this bread from my hand

I walk the path of life alone

Solitary seagull do you have a home?

Come warm yourself by my fire

Your mood might lift higher

Your pen I have read so amazing

Seems the world should be gazing

On your poems so eloquently thought

Happiness to my soul they have brought

Go away and keep out of my sight

You said and I think somethings not right?

For one whose tender letters

Really have no betters

Lonely seagull on floodlight high

I am so left asking just why?

Is it because as everyone knows

Seagulls really can’t write poems?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

REMEMBER, I REMEMBER

EVERYBODY’S GOT A FANTASY

A LITTLE DREAM OR TWO

A WAY TO TRAVEL BACK IN TIME

TO THE DOOR THAT WE ONCE KNEW 

I CLOSE MY EYES AND DRIFT AWAY

AND SAIL INTO THE SPLENDOR

OF A WORLD THAT NEVER TOLD A LIE

REMEMBER, I REMEMBER

HOW I DANCED THE DANCE OF HONESTY

ON THOSE SKINNY LEGS OF MINE

THROUGH THE GREEN GREEN GRASS OF INNOCENCE

TO THE STREETS OF NORTH WEST NINE

AND I STILL LOVE TO PLAY THOSE CHILDISH GAMES

RUN BAREFOOT ACROSS THE STREAM

TO FIND SOLACE IN THE CLIMBING TREE

NOW ISN’T THAT A SCREAM

EVERYBODY’S GOT A MEMORY

OF SOMEONE THEY USED TO KNOW

SOMEONE WHO USED TO BE A FRIEND

A LONG LONG TIME AGO

I CLOSE MY EYES AND SEE YOUR FACE

YOUR SMILE SO WARM AND TENDER

IN A WORLD THAT NEVER FELT COLD

REMEMBER, I REMEMBER

HOW WE SANG THOSE SONGS ABOVE THE WAVES

LIKE GULLS WHO BRAVE THE OCEAN

WE TURNED THE TIDE INTO THE WIND

WITH LOVE AND SWEET DEVOTION

AND I STILL LOVE TO HEAR YOUR GENTLE VOICE

THE SOUND OF ALL MY REASON

ECHOES OF THE WAY WE WERE

A SONG FOR EVERY SEASON

 

This is not my poem but is written by Rod Trott who wrote the lyrics

for my favorite song of all time Ocean Deep sung by

Cliff Richard. I simply love his poetry and he can be found on 

Facebook.

THE LONELY HEARTS CLUB

IS WHERE WE MET

I NEED A FRIEND I SAID

YOU SAID ‘ME TOO PLEASE DON’T FRET!’

 

THE FIRST THING I NOTICED

AND IT WASN’T YOUR LOOKS

YOU SEEMED SPECIAL

AS WRITTEN IN BOOKS

 

AT FIRST I WASN’T SURE

I DIDN’T KNOW YOU THEN

YOU WERE DIFFERENT

UNLIKE MOST MEN

 

I FOUND WE HAD THINGS IN COMMON

AND YOU MADE ME SURE

YOU CARE SO MUCH

I COULDN’T ASK MORE

 

SOMETIMES IN YOUR LIFE

SPECIAL PEOPLE APPEAR

THEN YOU FIND

YOU NEED THEM NEAR

 

AND EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE NEVER MET

THE STORY WILL UNFOLD

LOOKS LIKE LOVE WILL BLOSSOM IN OUR LIVES

UNTIL WE ARE VERY OLD!

 

GUITAR MAN

dreamy-guitar-man

 

GUITAR MAN I’VE LISTENED TO YOU SING

ALL OF MY LIFE

IN MY EARS YOUR SOUNDS WOULD RING

 

SO HANDSOME A SHINING STAR

A GOOD MAN TOO

I ADORED FROM AFAR

 

IN EVERY LIFE RAIN MUST FALL

BUT YOU MANAGED TO FOLLOW THE SUN

COMING THROUGH YOU STOOD TALL

 

 YOU LIVED ROCK AND ROLL

WITH GOSPEL SONGS

JIVING AN IMMORTAL SOUL

 

YOU ARE THE PERFECT CELEBRITY

SO GLAD YOU HAVE BEEN AROUND

FOR THOSE WONDERFUL SONGS YOU HAVE SUNG TO ME

 

ALTHOUGH I WILL NEVER BE PART OF YOUR LIFE

A FAN I WILL ALWAYS REMAIN

YOUR SONGS STILL TAKE ME TO THE HEIGHTS

 

FOLLOW YOU FOREVER

AND LISTEN TENDERLY

LOVE YOU ETERNALLY I WILL ENDEAVOR 

GUITAR MAN YOU MEAN SO MUCH TO ME

YOU WEAR A WIG AND LONG RED NAILS

YOU BUY LADIES KNICKERS IN THE SALES

YOUR EYELASHES ARE MADE BY COTY

YOU REALLY ENJOY BEING NAUGHTY

WHEN YOU VENTURE OUT BEAUTIFULLY DRESSED

THE EVENING MIGHT BE A SUCCESS

BUT AS A FRIEND SEEING YOU IN THOSE HEELS

BECAUSE I KNOW YOUR URGES ARE PASSIONATE AND REAL

ALL I PRAY AS INTO THE NIGHT YOU VENTURE

YOU WILL COME HOME SAFELY AND KEEP OUT OF DANGER

ALTHOUGH YOU WERE BORN TO BE A MAN

WARM LOVING AND CARING TO BE A WOMAN YOU CAN

MY VERY HEART AND SOUL YOU HAVE TOUCHED

OH! HOW I LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH!

 

 

 

TO WALK WITH YOU

The splendor of walking a dog

Into the brierly hills

Where pastured sheep

Hungrily chew the cud

 

Rising their tiny heads

Saying “Good morrow!”

The dog chases

“It will be when I have you!” it replies

 

You put one foot in front of your heavy staff

The other following without a breath

Then I dream i too am up there

Looking down high above the Earth

 

By your side breathless

I would be on top of the world

Once more from the height of a dream I fall

Deep down into  slumberland again

 

Alas I am still at the bottom of that hill

The dog has chased the sheep away

I glance once more to the heavens

And wake  alone!
