Journeys on the 7.20

If I was the sun
and you were the moon
I would shine my light
on your sweet face
and you would feel my warmth.

If I were the sun
and you were the moon
no longer would I stand still
your love would make me spin.

If I were the sun
and you were the moon
no rain would ever fall on us
the way it does on little Earth.

If I were the sun
and you were the moon
nothing on Earth could keep us apart
not even the Earth itself.

If I were the sun
and you were the moon
we could roam the universe
and the un-crossed stars
would light up our path.

If I were the sun and you were the moon.

But I am not the sun
and you are not the moon.
We are just two people
in separate orbits.
Our worlds touch daily but softly,
so softly that you do not feel it.

I am not the sun
and you are not the moon.
So I will have to dream
starry dreams of our journey
through the universe
and all the things
we would see and feel
if I were the sun
and you were the moon.

I was born in Croydon, England but grew up in Barbados. When I was 17 we returned to London. The fast pace of life was exciting, the shops fabulous but the cold - not so good. Although I do not like the cold and never will, I did like the changing seasons. In summer I love the long evenings but in winter I love the long nights. Spring means 'goodbye cold', and the colours of autumn are inspiring.
I like reading, writing poetry, cats, baking cakes and F1 - not necessarily in that order.
I have published three volumes of poetry. My second book ENCOUNTER is No. 1 on Amazon Kindle.
