Mum


Mum can make me so very angry
Mum can make me embarrassed and shy
But Mum feeds me when I’m hungry
And is the only person I allow to lie.

My mum is my hero and my world
And made me who I am today
I remember the days I sat curled
In mums lap as she chased the monsters away

The longest love ever known
Only between a mother and child will occur
It will continue beyond our time has flown,
From our lives and I can no longer see her

Perhaps the greatest fear is losing you,
But I know you will still be with me
In who I am, in all I do
I know I’ll be the greatest I can be

Because of you
Because you made me work hard,
You picked me up when I was blue,
You made me run that extra yard.

Meet Me By The Post Box at 2 O’Clock


Meet me by the post box at 2 o’clock
We’ll get the bus with expired tickets
We go to the shops and spend the money we haven’t got
We’ll hold hands, dance in the rain and kiss

We’ll shroud ourselves in the flag
Go to the cliffs and marvel at the scene
See the red flowers and paint the town blue
We’ll eat white ice cream, stand, stare, scream

We’ll sit atop the hill
As kings of the World
Monarchs of the Earth
Princes of the Globe

Go to the cemetery
The day after tomorrow
Stand at my side
With no ounce of sorrow

For we played and danced
Marvelled and spent
Painted and Ate-ted
Loved with intent

You’ll sit by the grave
The Queen of the Here
Monarch of the Now
And Princess of Today
