GOOD TIMES/BAD TIMES

Claire

Many broken pieces
Shattered, now apart
What can I do to mend it?
To mend by broken heart?

I walk along the beach
Leaving footprints cold and bare
How can I enjoy the sunset,
When thereís no one here to share?

There used to be a pair,
Of footprints next to mine.
But they washed away with waves
And the shifting sands of time.

All I can do now,
Is remember how things were.
The good times, not the bad times,
Which caused my heart to stir.

To live to die,
What does it matter?
While I am in this state.
I didnít know how much I loved,
Until it was too late.

TOGETHER

Emma S

Together,
Within a smudge of blue,
I walk the footpath.

Together,
With only ourselves in a group,
We are content.

Together,
We talk about the important things
Of our lives.

Together,
We are somehow complete,
Needing no-one else.

Together,
We hear the voice behind us,
Interrupting our private world.

Together,
As if one person, we glance back,
Seeing the face that spoke.

Together,
We try to accommodate the person,
Losing the closeness we had.

Together,
The conversation we make
Is of mindless events.

Together no longer,
We become smatters of blue
That once made a beautiful smudge.
