Chance of Sunshine

She’s standing in the courtyard
Flowers in her hair
She rests an arm on the well
She smells like spring in the air

Walking along the cliffs at night
Thunder frightens me
The wind flings open the gates
I walk through the fog, I’m lost at sea

We carry children into this world
Believing our invisibility
We act in accordance to our needs
We never once question our reality

Running along life’s unheralded
Path to glory
The sunshine is clouded in grey
An uncommon end to this story

Turn Around

Turn around and face the tears
You caused
Heartbreak and despair

You need to know how to improve
Apologise to yourself
Because you let yourself down

The implications of your actions
Are clear to see
Forgive yourself and move on

You can’t make undone what was
Just live with the truth and
Don’t pretend you done nothing wrong

To Scatter in the Wind

Scattered leaves
Drifting wind
Shivering to the bone
Stripped to the core

Fluently we float
Above the trees
Dreaming of forevermore
And what’s more

We feel a beginning
A beautiful outline
Of something new
Something invisible and true

A risk worth taking
A hope we’re hoping
Will take root and
Die in our arms
