A Quiet Day

My world had shrunk
It caught me by surprise
Horizons came closer
Yesterday so far away

Where did my space go?
My world had shrunk.
I tried to think of reasons
Did I stop looking around?

Friends no longer by my side
Children retreated to hide
My world had shrunk
Or was it me on the inside

I didn’t fear my journey’s end
Lonely though without my friends
What is it that makes me so small?
My world had shrunk

That’s all!!



There in my heart, I have felt many pains
Yet in my Spirit I knew the why’s of things.
Deep understanding of others, brush their souls
Live in their beings for a while you will feel.

Never be afraid of things you see in others
This is their battle and they must win
Let them lean on your shoulders, hold them
In your being there is infinite energy.

Never let your energy be used in any way
Let the universal energy bring you strength
Out there among all things, is a power house.
It is run by unconditional love always.

There but a thought away dwells forever.
All your yesterday’s todays and tomorrow’s
Will be there as you reach out to infinity
This belongs to you all, and will never change

No matter what or who you believe in,
Just walk within the goodness of being..

Ingrained in memories minds we drift,
There in a breath of wind we hold,
Then feelings are dashed into shards
Then in the new sunlight they glisten

A spinning chandelier of love held
voices whisper we are home again
Whisper your feelings they will be heard
even in the greatest noise of this world.

For ever where time is nothing
The blending of days reaches out
Bringing everyone together.
There watch the scattering of light

Held within the shards of a crystal
It can only mesmerise the watcher.
A heaven to take part in the energy
As they wax and wane in eternity.

On Golden Sands

On Golden Sands

Submitted by Ian.T on Fri, 2014-05-16 00:09


There is a hush as the sea
Gently flows back and forth
Onto the Golden sands we know
There caught in the light

Where true feelings glow
Two people stood holding
On to each other’s soul
Their smiling gaze

As the Angels shine
In the intimate knowledge
Of their being joined,
With a trust so true

Laughter sings out
As the babbling stream’s,
Catching the sun
Scattering it’s light

Words no longer used,
As looks portray,
A love of the ages,
They have captured

Where their trust
Two souls live on,

Apart Once more

In the whirlpools
Of their ageless time
They have spent inside
I hold your soul!

Is the echoing sound
Out across the waters,
I hold your soul!
With my love that’s true.

I give to you my all,
The reply rebounds with joy
That mimics the echo
Of two souls held aloft

Where all can see.
A special creature
Held in chrysalis state
Waiting for the sun

To warm its ways
You will then emerge
As a beautiful butterfly
Of feelings soon

To be free and new,
With love to give
Hold on to these places
All things are sweet to you

Your life’s blood,
The blood of your life
Hold them close
For they and only they

Can see the veils of time,
As they hold your soul
Give only to those
That earn your love

With the trust of all things,
Also the trust of bygone days
Given to you the hope
That in your future times

There will be two,
Building for your life
Build on sweetest thought
Of life that you are,

Where the heavens
Loaned us one of theirs
Build within the confines
Of your intricate mind,

So that you are strong
A tower of strength
For yours that need

Damn you all to hell and back
I never really awoke
sleep toiled my night
I couldn’t face the day

an eternal space in front of me
Crippling thoughts abounded
All truth just stung.
Everything was gone

what else could there be
A life without you
Nothing left for me
Time you say, just let it go

all those stupid words
from others only made it true
I didn’t want to exist without you
just leave me, don’t you see?

I find nothing is fair to me.

Shadow Days

Shadow Days

Submitted by Ian.T on Thu, 2014-05-22 22:43

I have walked in days just gone by,
that threw all sorts of shadows at my feet.
The sun felt cool as did the world,
was this all my feelings now that it was getting cool.

Why did the others that held my hand in times gone by,
leave me in this time,
I wonder why.
So it came to me as I looked around,

at the long shadows on the ground.
That most of them were cast,
by the things that were behind me.
This made the path ahead shine with hope,

that I could once again see.
I still have to find these things,
I have been looking with eyes closed.
The world will not show its self

to those who close their eyes
To feel the world and not see,
is only half of what should be.
So I have opened my eyes at the way ahead,

there are many things that held my gaze before,
A new life and people knocking at my door.
As though in the autumn of my years,
is this now a time for rebirth to try new things.

Adorning myself in a new coat,
to fend of the breath of winter to come,
I will go forward now and seek out fun,
As the autumn does not last long for some.

If I see you there in the autumn of my years,
think of things now or then in past times.
Realise that it is better to be.
Than to wait to see,

if the world will come knocking on your door
Believe it is your life for evermore

Hidden Love

Hidden Love

I sit here listening to soft music.
Spirits of the Isles, touches my soul.
Racing as silent tides toward my shore
Gathered, then gently left for all to see.

Thoughts of things gone by, touch me now,
visions of things to come satisfy a need.
Where are those voices that echo love
I need them now, to fulfil a space in time.

Comfort in knowing our love is safe.
That you and I loved without earthly ties.
Come sit a while with me, here as one.
Catch with me our love, because I care.

The gentle flow of our thoughts are divine
Touch those feelings as they intertwine
Whisper our love and our before times
Let them echo in our thoughts and minds.

Remind me softly of those secret days.
Of love remembered in a special way.
Talk of eternally embracing thoughts,
living as one, yet with a great divide.

Give to me a taste of things that will be.
Once yours and my souls are set free.
That time will no longer hamper our affection.
Differing for you and me, loves perception

Let us share our friends we have now known.
Why we cannot let them go, as we journey on
They will talk with us, in the echoes of time,
fearing we would leave any of them behind.

Far from the shore we can feel secure
Let our true love drift for evermore.
That we can send our thoughts out there.
Beyond the reef away from this daily care.

Stay a while, I feel I need to talk of more.
To talk to you of all things we have done.
It is hard to find a place where it all began
let your thoughts ring, rippling as sand.

I must rest my thoughts now, my little one,
another day unfurls loneliness has begun.
Always remember that I will love you so,
you are here, I can never, ever, let you go.

When alone, you fill my mind,
out of reach it makes tears.
The dawn becomes dull.
Sunsets a grey shadow.

Now you’re gone from view.
How can I get through to you?
Where are you that I may try?
To hell with proper ways.

I lived with them, all my days
I won’t change tracts.
Give me more strength,
I have purpose to eclipse stars.

I grow weak, without you.
Why did we go separate ways?
It’s etched into my thoughts.
I should not cry at things I see.

They haven’t hurt you or me.
Is it because I have a gentle soul?
Then why did you let me go?
I should have stayed at your side.

Now on my own, tears fall.
It is correct they bother none,
It’s my life, I give to all.
One day they have said to me,

we will be together for eternity.
What of their lies, making us so?
What if there is no eternity to share?
Have I wasted years, just sitting here?

Do tell me! Who are you, this mess?
Am I a sheep like all the rest?

My Memories Birthday

My Memories Birthday- (73 years on)

Submitted by Ian.T on Mon, 2014-06-02 23:52

6th June 1944
I was only two and a bit,
but I remember you.
In that you flew over little me,
I saw the sky filled with planes.

The ones towed behind,
never to return again.
As the soldiers that they held,
to save us, not themselves.

I cry for you even now.
They have told me all my life,
that you gave yours.
Without thought so freely.

My memory could not see,
the pain in body and mind.
Where death stalked you,
to save those left behind

I heard of you later,
they told me each year.
As the time passed by,
that day you were no more.

If my memory could hold you,
forever, there high up in that sky
You see I was so tiny,
all I can do is Cry

My Garden

My Garden

Submitted by Ian.T on Wed, 2014-06-04 09:15

I walked into my garden today
There you were, I said go away
Why you asked of me, “Can’t I stay?
It is not your time to visit my home.

I have been to your home I know,
that was so you would not be alone.
There staring from your window so
It was the tears I helped you let go.

This garden of mine will be here,
when shadows greet winters cool
It is but a tool of eternity, can’t you see?
I tend it so, that you can walk with me.

When the time folds and ages join
Here we can talk of yours and mine
A peace that knows no bounds
Where only joy and happiness is found

Yet I hear you say what of today?
It is yours my dear to blend,
with thoughts and life.
That one day will end.

My garden is open all the time,
there’s no hurry as with some of mine.
I shall make sure it is in full bloom,
there is no time, so it will be soon.

For you to walk with me.
