Facing Up


wiv me Dad at Bognor Butlins

I CAN’T SAY ‘You broke my heart’

It hurts me too much

I never knew you, we never spoke

I never knew you that much ..


The world it’s turning slowly

Each and every damn day

When we are children everything is rosy

Things you love moving away


I stepped on the pavement

Walked on the long, wet, grass

Buried my seed in earth’s umber vase

It’s been so hard to face up


And if you had a moment

I’d whisper in your ear, I always loved you

I always said a prayer

I never changed a moment


In my heart, I hold such a memory

I have tales I can tell

Pass me that whiskey

Then I’ll whisper it well


People don’t understand

When your shot to the hind

You run with a falter

And it prays on your mind


Now I must love my children

For my heart it might burst

For it’s not about the money

Not the chapter, nor the verse


So sing me your sad songs

Lady divine, & sing for your supper

Sweet lady of mine

For my love it is broken

.. .. and it bleeds from the vine ….




in memory of my sweet mother – Roma Joan and the love of my life
