Summer

So very hot and sticky

Unwanted insects at large

Maybe summer isn’t the best season

Maybe it is spring-time that begins in March?

Every year I dread it

Really I do – because I hate the summer, clearly I think it’s poo!

Spring

So many

Pretty flowers

Return every year

Interesting in colour and patterns, to me are so dear

Never bleak in springtime

Gardens burst in bloom, colouring the world again after winter’s gloom!

Floating but not happy

I am floating without a purpose

Wondering where I will flow

Don’t know why I exist here

I don’t know where I will go

Who are these people flying by me?

What are their names and what do they do?

I want to know everybody, want to know who is who

But mostly I am seeking for another you

I am in the air floating

I don’t know why I’m here

Floating because reality is hard

It happened ever since you broke from me dear

The floating feeling is not happiness

It is a sense of loss

It is a surreal moment

Look some floating moss

I can’t be normal anymore

My brain is too mushed up

I’ve been this way ever since you broke us up

I can’t be who I once was

She is dead and gone

I keep on floating by the weak and the strong

I don’t think they see me

Though I wished they did

I float along in silence

Will I crash into them?  God forbid

I keep on thinking about you

Although you’re lost and gone

I keep on wanting someone

Who will end this sad song!

Don’t you dare cry

Hello darling

Don’t you dare cry

I know the world it pains you it’s clear to see

But I want you to know I am here for you darling

Isn’t my love plain to see?

Look up darling, see the sun shine

Don’t dwell on things that won’t let you grow

All I want is to see you darling, smile and let happiness grow

Don’t keep thinking, about those dark thoughts

Just keep on thinking of the things you love

Don’t hear the gossip or the critics

They won’t help you, rise above

Kiss me darling, maybe your fears will fade away?

I am here for you always with open arms

Do not drown yourself in grey my darling

How I wished I had a magic charm

Then you can see my darling

That life is better if you do not dwell

Then happiness will flow to you darling

And your confidence will swell

Then there will be no dark clouds, only blue

I would do this all for you

So right now darling, don’t you dare cry

I know the world it pains you it’s clear to see

But I want you to know I am here for you darling

Isn’t my love plain to see?

Look up darling, see the sun shine

Don’t dwell on things that won’t let you grow

All I want is to see you darling, smile and let happiness grow

Happiness and Ken Dodd

Happiness I remember that

I remember things that gave me that

I remember you and I remember them

I remember happiness; I hope I will have it again

To me the world is a terrible place

Especially all people of the human race

I’m the unluckiest person in the human race

I’ve got no silver and I’ve got no gold

And I have misery in my soul

Happiness to me is peace of mind

A body without ill or pain and it’s mine

A big old family with lots of love

Lots of kisses and lots of hugs

Oh happiness, happiness

I wished I was blessed with happiness

I ask the lord, please do bless

Me with more than my share of happiness

Happiness is having pride, having a future and life that’s a wonderful ride

A piece of wealth and a lot of health

And lots of friends to pick off the shelf

A wise old man told me one time

Happiness is a frame of mind

You get what you mostly think about

And how I wanted to give that man a clout!

Oh happiness, happiness, is the greatest gift that I don’t possess

I pray to the lord that I be blessed with just a little piece of happiness

First of all let me apologise to hard-core Ken Dodd fans (like me) of which I have ruined a lovely song of.  But I really wanted to write this, it used to be my favourite song and it used to annoy people and I think I may have sang it once too much to a jealous witch, because I feel cursed these days.  I was so happy once on the first time I moved out that I was literally walking on air and being stupidly blind to the fact that it can someday go all wrong.  I know, I know, it is a depressive’s version of the great Ken Dodd’s song and I even sing this in the same tune, sorry, not completely original, but it is my take on it.  The tune is sung at a slower tempo as it is depressing, not at all like the original upbeat version Ken had made).

Happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I posses

I thank the Lord that I’ve been blessed

With more than my share of happiness

To me this old world is a wonderful place

I’m just about the luckiest human in the whole human race

I’ve got no silver and I’ve got no gold

But I’ve got happiness in my soul

Happiness to me is an ocean tide

A sunset fading on a mountain side

A big old heaven full of stars above

When I’m in the arms of the one I love

Oh, happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I posses

I thank the Lord that I’ve been blessed

With more than my share of happiness

Happiness is a field of grain

Turning its face to the falling rain

I see it in the sunshine, breathe it in the rain

Happiness, happiness everywhere

A wise old man told me one time

Happiness is a frame of mind

When you go to measuring my success

Don’t count my money count my happiness

Oh, happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I posses

I thank the Lord I’ve been blessed

With more than my share of happiness

Oh, happiness, happiness, the greatest gift that I posses

I thank the Lord I’ve been blessed

With more than my share of happiness

I got more than my share of happiness

Shadows stop, I will fade away

Save me from this cruel world

With heartless people and all the ills

Save me from this cruel world

It takes a lot for me not to down these pills

The shadows you see on the walls

Cover me entirely

I am drowning in their darkness and their sorrows

I can’t take it anymore

Take me out of this world’s door

I implore, I implore

Madness slowly seeping in

When will comfort begin?

Hello shadows drowning me

Go away if you please

But if you do not and you stay

I will surely fade away

I can’t take it anymore, please take me out of life’s doors

The darkness is slowly taking over

Please help me to recover

Unless I die in your arms tonight

I will not be free

Madness slowly seeping in

When will comfort begin?

Hello Shadows drowning me

Go away if you please

But if you do not and you stay

I will surely fade away

Winter

Why so bleak?

It is the season

Never warm, always cold

Though thrilling festivals forthwith

Ever singing in the New Year

Riding the end of the year in larks and laughs

Autumn

Always colourful

Under trees I walk

That rain

Unwanted leaves

Merrily I step into autumn

Never too cold or warm – it always pleases me
