The Dark Star And The Fair

A sonnet to Joe McElderry

There are two stars in my benighted sky
One fair, one dark, and both entitled J.
The fair commends and praises me on high,
The dark despises me, to my dismay.

The fair exalts me to the very heights
And gladly holds me to, like him, be fair;
The dark delights to hold me in despite
And cares not that I fall into despair.

Fair star, you are to me my knight, my knight,
You rescue me from grief on wings of song;
Dark star, you sing, but damn me to the night
And careless, see not when you do me wrong.

I rage if dark usurps the fair above,
Yet when - so sweet – he sings, am filled with love.

You Sing So Sweetly, Star Of Eventide

Sonnet (II) to Joe McElderry

In days of trouble, when no even keel
Presents itself on the rocky barque of life,
Events can press so hard, that I do feel
That only Sleep will free me from the strife.

Then on the horizon of my poor world
I see the glimmer of a saviour’s light,
As darkness’ gentle banner is unfurled
And from the scorching sun I find respite.

You sing so sweetly, star of eventide,
Cradling with heaven’s care my spirit burned
By this cruel day, which left no place to hide
In mundane deserts of emotions spurned.

The heedless glare of morning did me wrong,
Now you, night’s hero, do me right, in song.

If You Love Someone

If you love someone
Then you trust him with your life
When you look into his eyes
‘Cos if he lets you fall
You will drown inside of them.

Like the deep dark pool in which I learned to swim
My father took my hands and told me to jump in
And I held on tight and took the plunge because I trusted him
And knew his love would hold me up and keep me safe.

If you love someone
The you trust him with your soul
When you whisper secrets in his ear
‘Cos if he breaks your trust
You will shatter into pieces.

If you love someone
Then you trust him with your heart
When you press your lips to his
