Tap, Tap, tapping My Way

I’m caught up in the fog

I’ve got my hands out

Feeling my way like a blind man in a haze

Tap, tap, tapping my way along,

Through life.

 

I don’t really know what I’m looking for

But I keep searching

I’m like a blind man fumbling in the dark

And I sometimes think I need an instruction book

So I can be flick, flick, flicking,

Through life.

 

There are times; I ...

That's Enough

 

I don’t need applause

Or any kind of praise

I don’t need affirmations of love

Just a sign, that’s enough.

 

I don’t need platitudes

Or fake understanding.

I don’t need speeches

Just a word, that’s enough.

 

I don’t need your tears

I’ve got tears of my own

And I don’t need your anger,

Just advice, that’s enough.

 

I don’t need your sorrows,

I’ve ...

The Sixtieth Floor

So,

I’m in the elevator

Going higher and higher.

I’m taking the lift to the sixtieth floor

Though I can’t really see myself opening the door.

 

Still,

I often think about reaching that floor

I won’t be the first;

People have been there before.

I guess it’s all normal for a man of my age

It’s like reading a book and turning the page.

 

So,

I’m taking the li...

A Daydream on a Deckchair

A daydream on a deckchair

Into a world unknown.

Nothing I remember,

Nothing I know

But a warm zone,

A place to come home.

A whirlwind, a vortex,

A time without a care.

Soft lights and sweetness

Relaxing in a chair,

A daydream on a deckchair.

The One Who Loves You

So would you believe me if I said I loved you?

Yes, me. The one who comes into your restaurant every week

For the rather average food

And asks for a table in your section,

Me,

The one who loves you

 

So, would you be flattered if my eyes followed you

Yes you, as you pass table to table

And smile back when I smile and flash your blue eyes at me

As you pass by serving

Words instead of Bombs

Blow me up

Blast me against the wall

Burst me with bombs and guns into a thousand pieces

Shoot me down dead

With bullets to the head

And while my blood runs into the sand

Just think for a moment

That you could have shook my hand

Said hello

Fired words at me

Instead of bombs.

You could have screamed at me if you wanted,

Shouted, screeched and yelled.

You could...

The Background Guy

 

That ongoing story that I call my life

Is nothing but a total tangled mess.

It’s a disaster area; a no-go zone,

And sometimes I feel like staying at home.

 

It’s a rambling narrative with a spot of romance,

Love and sadness and elements of chance.

The day will come when all will be resolved,

And the pain and sadness will just dissolve.

 

If you see the film versi...

The Rain

The stream becomes the river

The river becomes the sea

And the rain that washes over me

Washes into the sea.

 

For you are my rain,

My river and my stream

And I am the fisherman

Who loves you in his dreams.

 

So when I wake I’ll hold you

And take away your pain

Love can wash the pain away

Like dust in the pouring rain.

 

The stream becomes the river
