Love’s light revealed

In thrall no more to earthly things,
raised on high to dwell with kings,
freed to fly on angel’s wings,
that mortal shrouds concealed.

When the bells of heaven ring,
lit by blaze of stars shining,
oh! how my soul shall sing!
with Love’s light revealed.

‘Til Your Glory comes to be!
‘Til we come and kneel to Thee!
Grant us God the Grace to yield,
and hearts to Hope for eyes to see,
Love’s light revealed.

Hearts to Hope for eyes to see,
Love’s light revealed.


A Heart That Broke

together we light a candle
blessed in His name
in the quiet darkness it shines
upon the remains
of a friend, a brother, a lover
and simply ‘a good bloke’.

the piano fades to the empty stage
leaving the light of a solitary flame
in the quiet darkness it shines
upon the remains
of a heart that broke.


Heaven’s Dawn

is it selfish of us to mourn
the souls who wake to Heaven’s dawn
eternal day follows mortal night
freed from fear by loving light
i will rejoice this blessed morn
with the souls who wake to Heaven’s dawn


The Silent Stone

On this grim day
As I walked alone,
Through the graveyard,
Stone by stone
I read the epitaph
Of a name unknown;

“You with life, go live! go love!
For you’ll join us here soon enough.”

So inspired by
The silent stone
I shall live and love
In the time I’m loaned
Until one grim day,
I’ll have those words
Inscribed upon my own.


Wear A Hat

It is my opinion that
All bald men should wear a hat
Lest the sun should catch their head
Sunburn, melanoma, dead.
