Beyond The Tears

Beyond The Tears

What may wait beyond the tears?
A brand new day without those fears
A chance to change and start once more
Whilst great new visions wash ashore

The world is vast and yet so small
We’re all just waiting, on the ball
As outside forces bide their time
Observing every hope and crime

Take time, reflect, and don’t rush in
There is no end, so why begin?
A reason for each thought and move
So ask yourself, what must I prove?

Believe beyond the worldly grind
There’s always more to keep in mind
Move on right now, waste no more years
For life awaits beyond the tears

The Funny Man

The Funny Man

If you meet the funny man
You’ll find he does the best he can
To make you laugh and have some fun
With every joke beneath the sun

It’s quite a joy to meet this guy
Don’t think too much or question why
Enjoy the ride and shake his hand
His mind you’ll never understand

For some are born with funny genes
A gift for bringing happy scenes
You can’t explain how this could work
Or what behind the laughs may lurk

Be sure then as you wish him well
To spread the news he came to tell
That joy and laughter need a fan
So don’t ignore the funny man

Between The Words

Between The Words

What may lie between the words?
Is language pure, as with the birds?
Words may be twisted and controlled
Hear deeper into things you’re told

For disappointments seek the mind
Which takes as read all it can find
Too quick to believe and then to act
Each input makes a deep impact

And yet let’s not be closed or cold
We’ll take a look at what is sold
But will we buy it?  Take some care
You’ll find illusions everywhere

This world won’t stop, although we must
Let’s take a break from worldly lust
Step back and see who’s happy here
Some great surprises could be near

The ones who like to learn and grow
Who keep it simple as they sow
And then each day will reap some gain
Who can embrace both joy and pain

Don’t shy away from what is said
But check what’s entering your head
For information may be found
Between the words, without a sound

Mysterious Jack

Mysterious Jack

Here comes old mysterious Jack
When he’s around you’ll never slack
For when he’s near, strange things occur
And long-forgotten thoughts will stir

A quiet man with hidden power
He’ll keep you guessing every hour
You may decide he’s not your friend
But he’ll still reach you in the end

Be on your guard when Jack appears
He has a way of finding fears
And somehow all your life is known
To Jack’s wise mind, where truth is grown

You may think that you’d been quite clever
But Jack can see forever and ever
He’s not the Lord but they have met
And Jack knows things you ain’t seen yet

Then if you find this life gets dull
Watch out, for soon it may be full
When turning corners watch your back
In deepest shadows you’ll find old Jack

Know Your Mind

Know Your Mind

The time has come to know your mind
Search deeply, see what you can find
And then move forward, vision clear
With greater hope, and in top gear

You’ll help a million people now
You’ll have the strength to show them how
Look back and see you had to grow
So many things you didn’t know

And in these times, where all can be
Make space and time, but peacefully
Reflect on things and why they come
To simply be is hard for some

Much more will be achieved by those
Who think it through, this always shows
So take your time and don’t be blind
It’s priceless when you know your mind

The Future

The Future

Whatever may the future bring?
Decide the song you wish to sing
Then sing it well, for life is short
In many traps we may be caught

The answer then begins from here
The past has gone and truth draws near
Face up to what the calling needs
Into the vast unknown it leads

Have courage and a clear mind
Then things of value you may find
The search moves on from you right now
Don’t be too quick to take your bow

So simply care in all you do
And every venture follow through
With many paths, this vast array
Choose well the future from today

Be A Friend

Be A Friend

It never costs to be a friend
It’s give and take until the end
Some times are hard but some are fun
The good times, only just begun

A call away on any day
True friends just know they’ll find a way
With simple trust in who we are
A friendly word can go so far

Be kind then whilst we’re here below
We all have faults, and far to go
Forgive each day and help friends grow
Some things, for sure, you’ll never know

And come the end of this short life
With all the doubts and hatred rife
We’ll be so glad, if in the end
We took the time to be a friend
