Number 1

People keep telling me to look after number 1
But how can I separate you and I, when you’ve become such an important part of my life
Together we are number 1
I’ve only ever wanted to be your equal
So it hurts me deeply when you think you aren’t good enough
We make a good team,
Complementing each other’s strengths and supporting each other’s challenges
So let’s both look after number one, together you and I

Author’s notes

I believe the best relationships involve the coming together of two equals, who are able to be themselves with each other.  It begins with self love.  I’ve learned you can only truly be a good friend, or partner if you put yourself first.  Not in a selfish way, rather by remembering that you can’t pour from an empty vessel and you need to be your own best friend first.

Lost

Lost without you in my arms
Missing you so much
I long to see your smile again
To feel your warmth and touch
I have this empty feeling
A space inside my heart
A sense a piece is missing
Whenever we’re apart

Author’s notes
Even the strongest person can feel lost, empty and alone, when kept from the person they love.

Together

Lying together in a passionate embrace
Open hearts begin to race
The tender look, that loving touch
No words could ever say so much
Two bodies closely intertwined
Completely lost in space and time

Simple gestures

A simple gesture means so much

A smile, a wink, a passing touch

Is often all it takes to feel

That love is special, true and real

The big 4 0

Life begins at 40
It’s not too late to start
Don’t let the bastards tell you
That you are an old fart
Don’t let them tease and chide you
About the wrinkles and the grey
You’re sure to get your own back
On their 40th birthday

A lighthearted take on the big 4, 0.  Remember age is just a number!
