Heaven, waiting, sings

It’s peaceful here, these darkened rooms
this ward, this evening hour
A deepened sleep. Breath in, breath out
from this still fading flower

Autumn’s come to this long life
as here we sit and wait
knowing that the time is close
The hour now is late

Breath in, breath out. A comfort here
We listen and we hear
Feeling peaceful, resolute
there falls a passing tear

Earlier we shared a prayer
the five of us as one
on this an evening of a day
to one of us now come

Breath in, breath out. The comfort stays
yet, waiting in the wings
the loved ones who have passed before
as heaven, waiting, sings

At one with the sea

Came to the sea
at its beckon and call
Embraced by its welcoming arms
Knew solace and comfort
The promise it gave
that here I would come to no harm

Stood on the shingle
there with a smile
Looked to horizon out there
Where the sea met the sky
with a tear in my eye
at the beauty that it had to share

Knew peace in a moment
A palpable thing
Like the comforting warmth of the sun
The embrace of a friend
with never an end
And me and the sea here as one

There for me

Down on the beach
with lapping waves
the sea is always
there to save
It is my solace
yes, my gain
Graceful comfort
free from shame
A comfort blanket
wide and free
and ever always
there for me

New Sofa

We have a new sofa
it’s lovely and green
And it is the best sofa
that we’ve ever seen

It’s a great one for comfort
for Sally and me
and is really quite perfect
for watching TV

So I’ll finish this verse
then lounge for a while
on our brand new sofa
with the curl of a smile

Comfort in Sound

I’m plagiarising something
today, but never mind
‘Cos there’s every best intention
and it’s not meant to be unkind
For I have (as to be honest)
done a thing I often do
Been listening to music
and the sounds I loved and knew
Albums I’ve not played a while
are a joy when they are found
For, as Feeder said some years ago
This is “comfort in sound”

The music of the ocean

The music of the ocean
the best tune I know
as I hear if very often
when to the beach I go
It’s a full orchestral movement
with the nuances that brings
and the voices of a choir
for the wondrous songs its sings
The music of the ocean
is a comfort here to me
in this lovely place I live in
so close beside the sea
