My Phone And I #2

My wife and kids are not too pleased

I spend too much time on my phone

They say I should get some exercise

I ask them to leave me alone

Sophie thinks I don’t hold her anymore

I only hold my phone

If I don’t change my ways

In the streets she’ll have me thrown

She thinks whenever we go out

I talk more to my phone

I correct her on that point

I do the same at home

The kids are more threatening

They plan to steal my phone

Hide it in some corner

I shall forever be unknown

I have my own plans so

They never mess with my phone

If they’ll ever steal it

In the streets I’ll have them thrown

My wife and kids are not too pleased

I spend too much time on my phone

They say I should get some exercise

In the streets I have them thrown

My Phone and I

Mom and dad are not too pleased

I’m spending too much time with my phone

They asked me to get some exercise

I told them to leave me alone

Mom thinks I should do my homework

My grades are crashing down

If I don’t make it through school

I’ll end up as a circus clown

Mom also thinks she’s very funny

That I’ve inherited that bone

But I do not agree with that

Neither does my phone

Dad says that I’m a bum

I barely move a muscle

I’m too lazy to argue that

I could beat him in a tussle

He really shouldn’t criticize

What he cannot understand

He would never realize

My phone is my only friend

Mom and dad are not too pleased

I’m spending too much time with my phone

They asked me to get some exercise

So I untangle my earphones

Then You Came Along

I was lonely. I was sad

I had lost everything that I ever had

I had nothing but time

No family, house, car or dime

Then you came along

Everything turned so wrong

I forgot that I was ever sad

You made me happy. You made me glad

Like you were an evil witch

You turned my fortunes. Made me rich

Now I just don’t understand

What to do with the cash in hand

Why don’t you just go away?

There’s so much tax that I have to pay

Give me back my time and space

I don’t want to see your face

Is this some devious plot of yours?

To gift me a healthy Swedish horse

All this wealth – this isn’t me

I want to go back to writing poetry

If I Was To Die Tomorrow

If I was to die tomorrow

The world will be filled with sorrow

All the young girls

With golden hair and curls

Will cry their hearts away

If I was to die tomorrow

Cry your hearts out in sorrow

Sing my praises and songs

Say that I did no wrongs

A hero has gone away

But if tomorrow comes late

And I’m still standing straight

Far from being dead

You still go ahead

Sing my praises anyway

If I Was To Die Today

If I was to die today

You’d have so much to say

Say that I was a good man

The greatest son of the land

But now he’s gone away

If I was to die today

If I was to die tomorrow

Drown yourself in sorrow

Sob and cry and drop your tears

Remember me for a trillion years

After I’m buried below

If I was to die tomorrow

If I was to die yesterday

There would be no time to play

Just take my time machine

The one you’ve never seen

Bring me back to stay

If I was to die yesterday

The Light That Shines In Me

When I’m lying in my bed

With a thousand thoughts in my head

Amongst the chaotic crowd

Only one thought stands out loud

The thought of you is stuck to me

When you’re not close to me

It’s a shame we have to be away

A moment seems so long today

You are the light that shines in me

The beat that my heart beats

The love that fills my empty soul

The love that makes me complete

Everything else seems so forlorn

I can’t seem to remember anyone, anything, anymore except you

Give me what I need now

I need to have you somehow

The cracks are there to let you in

This is the end where I begin

My story yearns for an happy ending

When stars are dead and sun’s ascending

Never to die or lose the way

A moment seems so long today

You are the light that shines in me

The beat that my heart beats

The love that has me in control

The love that makes me complete

You’ve got me feeling reborn

I can’t seem to remember anyone, anything, anymore except you

Lift me up to the sky

From this place where I do lie

Drop me down without a clue

And I’ll land right in the arms of you

For you guard my heart

Never let it fall apart

And I have no more words to say

A moment seems so long today

You are the light that shines in me

The beat that my heart beats

The love that fills my empty soul

The love that makes me complete

Everything else seems so forlorn

I can’t seem to remember anyone, anything, anymore except you

Life Of A Poet – Part 4

Losers weepers, finders keepers

Never say die. Let sleeping dogs lie

Live and learn. Walk before you run

Look before you leap. As you sow, you reap

Where there’s a will there’s a way

The mice play when the cat’s away

Grasp all, lose all

Pride comes before a fall

Curiosity killed the cat. Laugh loud and grow fat

Blind leads another blind. Seek and you shall find

Be clear if you know it

Confuse if you’re a poet
