There's An Elephant In The Room

There's an elephant
in the room
that needs talking about
But nobody wants to
start the conversation

Avoiding the situation
seems the best thing to do
Exchanging pleasantries
And everyone agrees
the weather is rough
this time of the year

There'll be time enough
to shed a sad tear
to wallow in sorrow
to bury their grief

But the elephant
still hides in the shadows
A silent thief

Q:~How do you shrink an elephant?
A:~ With small talk!

Dancing With The Rain

You tiptoe softly through my dreams
like a cloud on a summer breeze
Although I try and embrace you
you slip through my fingers like rain

Arms open wide I reach for you
Rain is falling all around me
pitter-patter like a heart beat
I'm dancing with the falling rain

When I wake up in the morning
I pray that I may fall asleep
I want to dance with you again
rain is falling all round me

I Wrote You A Poem

I wrote you a poem (left unread)
So I wove you a dream instead
I caught the wind in the forest
And chased the rain on the river
I collected dew from the dawn
And captured the gentle quiver
of lilting birdsong in the morn

 I spun heaven into your dreams
with bits of sky ever so blue
And wisps of silvery moonbeams
Spun with stars and a twilight hue

I wrote a poem for you
Nothing to cling to
Nothing to give or take
No keepsake
