Pipe Dreams and Lullaby's

Postby Rybo75 » Mon Feb 28, 2011 10:39 pm

If there’s an angel on my shoulder,
Then surely she must see,
The sands of time are shifting,
As the winds of change blow free.

Kept a promise, shared a secret,
Spoke the truth, I heard a lie,
Stole a moment, but gave no reason,
Saved a life, for a chance to say goodbye.

Pipe dreams and lullaby’s, Rocky roads, and rainbow skies,
First hellos and long goodbyes, One love found, and another one dies.
Pain deceit and lies; Wipe the tears from your eyes
Just take what fate denies, Pipe dreams and lullaby’s.

Never played it safe, forgot to hedge my bets,
Left no time, to toe the line, or deal with my regrets,
Journeyed with the reaper, fuelled by my desire,
Spread my wings, as I fly then take each high much higher

My head is full of dreams, that never let me sleep.
Living like a playboy, but buying on the cheap.
I know the inch is mine, but I’ll always steal a mile,
Juggling with sanity, but hell it makes me smile.
Im on a never ending search, for self satisfaction,
All plans fall by the wayside, im driven by distraction,
Im falling off a wagon, thats losing all its wheels,
A helter skelter ride to hell, but I love the way it feels,

Pipe dreams and lullaby’s, Rocky roads, and rainbow skies,
First hellos and long goodbyes, One love found, and another one dies.
Pain deceit and lies; Wipe the tears from your eyes
Just take what fate denies, Pipe dreams and lullaby’s.

Kept a promise, shared a secret,
Spoke the truth, I heard a lie,
Stole a moment, but gave no reason,
Saved your life, so I could say goodbye.

Pipe dreams and lullaby’s, Rocky roads, and rainbow skies,
First hellos and long goodbyes, One love found, and another one dies.
Pain deceit and lies; Wipe the tears from your eyes
Just take what fate denies, Pipe dreams and lullaby’s.



I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS GOOD OR BAD. THANKS.

I love this...I like the rhythm and the pace of it....and I think that anyone, whether the sentiment applies to them or not, can look back over their lives and remember some parts that apply to them. I havn't put anything on here for ages, and this poem has made me want to write again...thankyou
I have written poetry since childhood(most of which went in the bin), but recently started reading at open mike nights at my local. I have just published a (very short) book of 11 poems and have written childrens stories for my grandson, Tyler.
