Peggy & John

i can’t thank you enough for all that you’ve done

i cant win a prize that’s already been won

to be your granddaughter and all these wonderful years

lyme regis beaches or wiping my tears

if I could have one more walk on that beach

i would tell you my love for you is out of reach

it spreads so far and wide around all of the earth

it’s enough love to live another life’s worth

i knew this when I was young but thought we had so much time

the time has slipped away, a bigger mountain now to climb

if I could have one more ride home from school in that volvo

i wouldn’t hide in the back seat and take up the whole row

i would look to you and grandad sitting in the front

reach over and beep the horn, to show my classmates i had won

a prize more valuable than anything ever

Peggy and John – my greatest treasures

World hunger

Do we not feed the world enough 
For it to want to eat me whole 
I know it’s hungry 
I can feeling it rumbling
Thunder skies moving across
Land where we stand 
Waiting for confirmation of what we are 
I know it’s hungry 
It’s ready for me 
Mouth wide open 
Ready to swallow me whole 
Amongst the cracks I fall 
Into the abyss of within 
Where conformation of who we are lies
Dust amongst a cloud 
Of moving smoke 
Blinding us
Eyes closed, I can finally see
The world is ready for me
