FOR A FATHER AND SON


Just as that one light faded, so another one began to glow,
Just as our hearts began to ache, a remedy was soon to show,
Just as the night will follow day, the certainty will be,
That all of us will love and be loved, until eternity.

No heart that's beaten, never loved, nor ached for one that's missed,
No dreams fulfilled are ever lost, nor children ever kissed,
No eyes of those who love with honesty, ever lost for tears,
For those who have their memories, there are such happy years.

In all we say, in all we do, there are no solid rules,
In every man and woman here, there are as many fools,
In every moment captured, there are those that pass us why,
And once they've passed, are gone, on that we can rely.

Just as a son was born to us, another one was lost,
Just as I wished I'd said 'I love you', now I count the cost,
Just as My Father knows no more, of that which I am proud,
I know he'd want to join with me, and shout my joy out loud.

No-one can ever tell me, that the good become the strong,
Nor preach to me of good and bad, of what is right or wrong,
No-one can ever tell me that the world is not that bright,
For as that one light faded, one more spark was set alight.

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
