Dark Night

Batman, my son
Don’t fight the dark night
Go to sleep now
Everything is alright

There will always be jokers
And riddles to solve
Don’t lose your sleep
In the morning resolve

Some lovers are poison
Like ivy on the wall
Freezing your heart
Some two-faced and tall

Yet others will purr
Like a catwoman sings
Some cute as the penguins
On a warm day in spring

Dress yourself fine
Unlike a scarecrow
Remove the mad hatter
It’s not your bane you know

“It’s not who you are underneath
It’s what you do that defines you”
You know the truth
And the truth is you.

An Ode to Rob

I'm Geooooorgie, I am a Cat
I'm brown and like to chat
I'm loud and love a pat
I'm George and I'm all dat

I'm so graceful and refined
My purr is loud and quite divine
I swing and swagger my big behind
I'm not too fussy where I dine

The poor little chippies
And poor little mice
An unfortunate rendezvous
Has cost them their life

Their feet and tails left on his mat
Where I have made a messy splat
I'm Geooooorgie, I am a Cat
I'm George and I'm all dat


I'm George and I'll sing my song
Mice and chippies don't belong
C'mon, c'mon, sing along
C'mon, I'm George and I'm singing a song
For you....Rob.

Meow!!!  Happy Father's Day!

I love you Rob xoxo

Fear Not

Fear not my child
Everything will be alright
I’ll wipe your tears
While I hold you tight

Weep not my child
Fear blurs your sight
I’ll wipe your tears
And you’ll see what’s right

Turn your face dear child
From the clouds and rain
I’ll wipe your tears
Take away your pain

The end is near
Tomorrow vs today
I’ll wipe your tears
And show you the way

Embrace the greatness
You’re meant to be
I’ll hold your hand
Just wait and see

Fear not my child
As you build your new life
I’ll hold your hand
Everything will be alright

Dance with Me?

Dance with Me?
You want to be my partner?
I can see – the music has started
You are calling
And I am smiling

I bet you dance with all the girls
No matter though, I’m still thrilled
Hold my hand, I'm with you now
Take the lead
Please show me how

Down the treasured garden path
Under the stars and moon
The music beats inside our chests
No matter what
When I'm with you I'm blessed

Garden Fairies

There are fairies in my garden
They’re really rather small
I hear them whisper secrets
At my waterfall

Sometimes I hear them giggling
Amongst the bushes rose
Around the dogwood thicket
Tickling tiny toes

Grumpy gnomes are snoring
Inside their mushroom homes
Blushing girls and handsome boys
In their fancy clothes

They peer into my gazing balls
Up close with one big eye
Toothy grins and double chins
It seems they’re not too shy

She waltz’s with orange flowers
He salsas with impatiens
They rumba with the sunflowers
Staked along the fence

A young boy flirts with Coral Bells
He kisses her petals tender
She embraces his attentions
Until his love surrenders

They’re friendly to all the insects
They lead the choir of birds
They especially like my spider
That helps me write my words

Their pretty wings are fluttering
In the light of the golden sun
They spread their magic fairy dust
With exuberance and fun

The fairies live in my garden
How do I know they do?
As long as love resides there
They’re in your garden too.

End of the Beginning

I keep hearing that this is
The Beginning of the End
 I’d like to challenge that.
We are being prepared for
The End of the Beginning?
A cleansing of the Earth’s soul
Exploding it’s fury but forgiving
To give us yet another chance
To end famine, war, hate
Pollution, crime and other human nonsense
Hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, fires,
Erupting volcanoes and earthquakes
Were the only way that we could see
To notice with concern, pay attention
Learn to listen to Mother Earth
This is the end of an era
The end of what we know today?
We are evolving as humans
As we evolved from the Stone Age
Copper Age, Bronze and Iron
We are progressing into a community
Of loving, peaceful, respectful people
Kind, sharing and caring
We come together as people
Take care of each other
Enjoy each other’s presents
Appreciate all life
And all the things that make us great
The Earth is in labour
And it’s meant to be a bit painful
But all will be okay
Because what we get in the end
Is wonderful.
