' HER BEAUTIFUL FACE'
' HER BEAUTIFUL FACE' The first time that he saw her it was her beautiful face, He fell in love at first glance though he was very young
'THIS IS MY MANCHESTER' People bustling down the street, The John Rylands library stands so proud,
Have you ever seen an Angel? Beautiful, Clean and white, Cherubs riding by his side. Now if you are so lucky an Angels feather will dropp beside you,
'A BLESSING IN DISGUISE'
'A BLESSING IN DISGUISE' What is a blessing in disguise? A kick in the teeth?
'I MISSED MY CHANCE'
'I MISSED MY CHANCE' I missed my chance of love forever After all these years
'ALZHEIMERS' He looked across at the woman he had loved for over fifty years, She looked straight back at him wondering who he was,
Its sometimes hard to play the clown, Their is pathos and there are tears, Beneath that happy made up face, He hides behind his tears,
'THE MAN WITH THE WHITE BEARD AND RED SU...

'WHAT DO YOU WEAR FOR BED' Was said to Norma Jean, Chanel no five sir replied the beauty queen,
'AUTUMN DAY' Beautiful colours whats left of the leafs, Summer has left us winter is near
'HAVE YOU EVER WANTED THE NIGHT TO LAST'
Have you ever wanted the night to last, Often on your own if lucky partner with you, Not a trouble in the world you lye there in contentment, Snug and tight no feelings of resentment,
'CAN I BE YOUR FRIEND'
'CAN I BE YOUR FRIEND' Said the Arab to the jew! Course you can my friend meet my sister too!
'BEAUTIFUL LADY IN PINK'
'BEAUTIFUL LADY IN PINK' I saw her on the bus she smiled and waved at me, She was the most beautiful girl she gave me so much glee!

'HOW DO YOU COPE WITH THE LOSS OF A CHILD'
'HOW DO YOU COPE'
How do you cope with the loss of a child?
One minute their here, the next their gone.
The child you brought up with so much care,
Suddenly they are no longer here.
No smile or a touch how do you cope?
I just cant imagine when you have lost hope,
Its just not right, not the order of things!
To lose your child is an awful thing.
Whether they are young, or, older it should not be.
Your child should be here sat on your knee.
Not the other way round when they have gone!
All your Aspirations down the pan.
God bless ...
