Teach Me

Touch me with your body
Share those thoughts that crowd your mind
Warm my heart with that special love
Now that our paths have become entwined.
Teach me how to please you
So that our lives may become enriched
Weave that spell that you weave so well
The spell that has my mind, bewitched.

Share with me your waking hours
So that the dreams I have, ring true.
Help me fill my heart with love
Then share that love with you.
Educate me in your quiet ways
Remove all suspicion from my mind
Teach me control over my wayward tongue
So that I may better serve mankind.

Give unto me your counsel
So that I may better understand
Why truth and love still flourish
In this bigoted land.
Caress me with your soft spoken words
Douse the aggression in my heart
Show me the way to peace and love
That I may be your counterpart.



L.D.B.

A Book of Memories

There is a great reduction in the quality of my life,
These contractions came about on the day I lost my wife.
An abatement, a deflation, of what had gone before,
I'd been pampered, I'd been cherished, I'd been loved and what is more,
I'd been selfish in the taking of all these precious things,
These gifts that had been given freely by my Angel without wings.


I had squandered all the love that had been bestowed on me
A self destructing bankrupt as all the world can see.
It is only on reflection, when the dice of life's been cast
That one is forced to face the truth, or live life in the past.
The past for me was wonderful, years of happiness and love,
We shared those years together and lived life hand in glove.


The past is now just memories, memories I cannot share,
Haunting, lonely memories from those days we were a pair.
Those plans we'd made together, for retirement and old age
Are plans I dare not now recall in case I start to rage.
I cannot control my temper, my frustration knows no bounds,
I snap at my subordinates, when really there's no grounds.


It's time for me to face that truth and get on with my life,
It's time I closed that wondrous book, of the years spent with my wife.
It's now time to face tomorrow and those tasks tomorrow brings,
It's time to seek out happiness, till once more my heart sings.
So with reluctance I close the book at this chapter in my life,
And seal those memories in my heart of Joyce my darling wife.



L.D.B.

Declaration of my Love

I love the way you arrange your hair
With such simplistic style and grace,
And with the minimum of ease
Highlight your wondrous face.
I love the way those dark brown eyes
Reflect the mirror of your soul
And how that inner peace you have
Never seems to lose control.

I love the gentleness of your smile
That's born deep within your eyes,
The radiance of your charisma
That surpasses Nature's own sunrise.
I love your warmth, your understanding,
Of others and their plight,
I love the presence of you by my side
When we go to bed at night.

I love your genuine interest
In all I say and do
I think I love you most of all,
Just because you're you.
No pretentiousness, no self ego
Just an open heart and mind,
Unbiased to the enth degree
You always spoke as you did find.

A confidante to everyone
Who joined our circle as a friend
A counsellor of distinction
When a rift you had to mend.
I love the care you bestow on me
So unselfish, sincere and true,
There is nothing in this crazy world,
For you I would not do.



L.D.B.

A Country Grace

We thank you for the food we eat
Albeit from anothers hands.
Meanwhile we break the stony ground
And sow seed, in these barren lands.
We battle with the elements,
Scorching winds or nightly frost
To save the seeds we've planted
And replace the crops we've lost.

We thank you for the sustenance
Provided for us, here today,
We thank you for this blessing
As we bow our heads to pray.
May the seeds that we have planted
Grow strong and straight and true,
So that when itis time to harvest
We can dedicate our crop to you.

Bless the fare upon this festive board
All a product of thy Grace
Bless us this day our Heavenly Lord
Without favour to any race.
May we all remain your children
Husbands to your promised lands
May we learn to, nuture and protect them,
And thus earn your blessing through our hands.



L.D.B.
