A love in verse

I’ll Be Around

Performed by

Soon the winding counties will 

Be lost behind me, motorways

And bending roads, the shopping malls

That look the same in every town

Strange new digs and different beds

Will fade their colours from my mind:

Within my fingers, all moist heat

Of lips’ pressed passion I’ll enjoy

Returning to your warm dear arms

Knowing your nearness, knowing too

I’ll be around, I’ll be around,

All through the days I’ll be around

To love – the places where you are

Or will be soon.


The Old Joanna

Sometimes everything is grace

Sunday evening after dinner

My love plays – talent’s in her...


I know now it cannot end

Eternity would have to bend

Before our love’s large strength...
