Quote: Have You Ever Been in Love?



Quote: Have You Ever Been in Love?



Smiling Searching Thinking Knowing


Let her go Passenger



Smiling Searching Thinking Knowing






Smiling in the sunshine

Searching for a reason

Looking for a clue

Thinking about times past

Remembering those words

I’m thinking about you



Thinking if I were yours

What would you do?

It’s all too deep for you

Knowing you want easy

You want light

You want shiny and new



Thinking you wouldn’t be there

As I need you to be

I’ve seen the preview

Knowing you want acceptance

You want definition

Knowing you can’t take blue



Thinking of your shadows

Of your corners too

I have too clear a view

There’s nowhere to slide

Nowhere to blend

I see right on through



I don’t wear blinders

I don’t do masks

I won’t ignore what’s true

Knowing you can’t duck

You can’t hide

I’m looking straight at you



Thinking in the sunshine

Smiling in the warm

Taking in the view

Knowing it’s too late

Thinking of the things I’ll miss

Knowing I’ll miss you











“Have you ever been in love?  Horrible isn’t it?  It makes you so vulnerable. 

It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. 

You build up all these defences, you build up a whole suit of armour, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life….

You give them a piece of you.  They didn’t ask for it.  They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. 

Love takes hostages.  It gets inside you.  It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart.  It hurts. 

Not just in the imagination.  Not just in the mind.  It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain.  I hate love.”

– Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones





I Saw an Angel


George Eliot Quote for wordpress 2



I Saw an Angel





I saw an Angel

As he flew on by


I saw an Angel

And I wanted to cry


Tears of joy and wonder

Rolled down my face


How privileged am I

In this time, in this place




I saw an Angel

He brought me hope


Soft wings enfolded me

Suddenly I could cope


On shaking legs I stood

Strength began to return


Though the earth was still moving

Under my feet the ground was firm




I saw an Angel

Holding out his hand


Speaking words of comfort

He seemed more than a man


I was filled with awe

Humbled by such love


To be so small

But still noticed by that one up above




I saw an Angel

He had a message to convey


Quiet words of warmth

Touching my heart more than I can say


To feel so lost

But then to be found


To have gentle hands patch my wounds

And stand me on solid ground




I saw an Angel

Faithful and true


I saw an Angel

As away he flew


I didn’t realise

When he stood by my side


I didn’t see

As he caught the tears I cried




I saw an Angel

But I didn’t know


He didn’t arrive blowing trumpets

His wings he didn’t show


But looking back

Eyes open like never before


I see it was an Angel that day

It was Angel knocking on my door




I saw an Angel

And now I realise


It’s my turn to be somebodies Angel

My turn to wipe tears from glistening eyes


It’s my turn to help a broken heart

My turn to help somebody stand


I can be their Angel

I can hold out my hand









“The wings of angels are often found on the backs of the least likely people. “

– Eric Honeycutt




Last Chorus Last Song


Tears and Memory



Last Chorus Last Song




I don’t know what I feel

I don’t know why I cry

I don’t know what these tears are for

When we already said goodbye




I don’t know what to think

I don’t know what to say

I didn’t see it coming

When we already went our own way




Is it the end of an era

Is it the beginning of the past

Is it the questions left unanswered

That make me feel this at last




Is it the memories that linger

Is it the feeling still there

Is it the smile in my heart

That finally lays it all bare




The heart is a funny thing

The heart fools and lies

The heart finds a way back

Even after all the goodbyes




The heart may still be weeping

The heart may still miss that face

The heart might still be wounded

Even when you’re in a truly happy place




So this is the final goodbye

So this is the final so long

So these are the last notes

The last chorus of the last song




A smile lingers as fall those last tears

A last chord plays and fades softly away

And a wish, a hope, goes out to the universe

It’s a brand new song, a brand new day









“Hate leaves ugly scars, love leaves beautiful ones”

– Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic’s Notebook, 1966



“True love stories never have endings”.

– Richard Bach



“The music may have stopped

but my heart beats to another tune,

this rhythm called love”

– A.C. Van Cherub
