Friends Again


Friends again
But only friends and not the
same again
All too often love will
never mend
But at least we can be
Friends again

Drift apart
With remarks that often
seem too tart
This is common in affairs
of the heart
But careful friends can halt the
Drift apart

All my lovers threads
Dangled by our heads
Puppets left for dead
Understandable
To be friends instead

Now we joke
Reduced from people to a girl
and a bloke
Touching anything but the fires
we daren’t stoke
Unhappy at our fate but
still we joke

Friends again
Unhappy lovers who have
hearts to mend
Frightened victims with no
will to unbend
But at least we will be
Friends again

Time, Words and Feelings


Believe me I have spent my time
Trying to find a better rhyme
But I have had too little time
With you

And if I find a better word
A song of my love will be heard
But I know too little words
For you

But believe me when I say I have the feeling
The time I’ve spent with you has been revealing
And though I don’t know words that are appealing
I want to be with you

And if you think how little time
There is that has been yours and mine
You’ll know why I wrote such poor rhymes
For you

And if you find the better word
Or one that’s easily preferred
To the like of which I’ve heard
It’s you

But believe me when I say I have the feeling
The time I’ve spent with you has been appealing
And still the words I sing are all revealing
I want to be with you
