In life I shall not hold you again -

I've held the box your ashes are in -

But I can't take death on the chin

Or moon about 'remember when'

For I've your picture by my side

Caught in a flash of happiness-

Saying 'Get lost!' To all distress

Ancient Adoration

Burn me if you’re cold

Sleep on me if you’re tired...

The Ancient Butterfly

And time has gone doolally

A butterfly will flutter by...
