David Harris Poems

Just beyond the sunset
Someone waits for me
Just beyond the sunset
Lies my destiny

If we can not respect another
How can we expect them to respect us
If we can not respect someone’s beliefs
How can we expect them to respect ours

A birthday poem for my wife

A star fell from heaven
Into my arms last night

Some roads are rough and rocky
Some very narrow to get through
But whatever road I travel
It always leads back to you

On days when the world
seems to be getting on top of you,
stop and look around,
give someone a little hug

I sat down to write
a romantic poem
confessing I love you.
However, I guess I’m not

An old shoe box under the bed,
filled with mementoes of years gone by.
Faded love letters stained with tears,
I used to cry.

I look in the mirror,
and what do I see?
A face with no future,
stares out at me.

Chasing rainbows
That should have followed the rain
Chasing old loves
‘cause no new loves came

Your memories fill each waking hour
You face fills each and every thought
Of the times we had together
That surface from the back roads of my mind

You fill my soul with sunshine
my heart with tender care.
You fill my world with happiness
knowing that you are always there

If I ruled the world,
many changes I would make.
It would be required
that happiness shone

All summer long he collected his nuts
Burying them here and there
When it came to dig them up
He couldn’t remember where

Too many times, we leave things until later
Sometimes later never comes and the moments are lost
We never get the chance to say the most important things
That is to say, I loved you and goodbye

A caring heart will never stray
even when its owner has to go away.
It will think of its happy home
dismissing thoughts of wanting to roam.

As each year begins to close,
we reflect over the passing one
remembering the highlights
along with the year’s woes.

Season of mist and mellow fruit,
Of blossom and scented air.
Bird song and busy bee,
seem to inhabit everywhere

Once upon a time not many years ago
a girl named Fred fell in love with a boy named Fran.
Although the names seemed an odd combination
and could easily be confused by people who did not know

When the snow is gone,
we will remember this winter
for a long time to come.
We will remember being told not to go to work,

You flew too high for any mortal,
when love first struck you,
but then one-day love didn’t sing,
and you ended up, an angel with a broken wing.

David Harris Biography

I was born in England, but raised in Canada until I was fourteen. I came back to England where I now reside. I started writing seriously at eighteen, firstly with songs, then drifted into writing poetry, short stories and finally novels. About six or seven year ago I gave up writing all together. It has only since joining PH in January 2007 that I started writing again thanks for the encouragement I received from a lot friends up here. In 2006 I was awarded an Outstanding Achievement Award from the International Society Of Poets for my poem Faded Love Letters. The first award I have ever received for any of my writing. The poem has now been include in several anthologies including one on CD. I awarded the same award for a second year in 2007 I am at the moment waiting on tender hooks hoping that my Literary Agent can sell my latest novel for me. I also belong to a western re-enactment group, hence my nickname Dodgy Dave the Vicar. You will find some of the crazy things I get up to under Dodgy Dave Tales by JoJo Bean, my official PH biographer and good friend. Recently I began a collaborating with JoJo Bean and Meggie Gultiano under the title of JoJo Bean, Dodgy Dave and Meggie Gultiano. Although each of us are friends and live thousands of miles away from one another we have managed to transcend the miles to work in perfect harmony with one another.)

The Best Poem Of David Harris

Just Beyond The Sunset

Just beyond the sunset
Someone waits for me
Just beyond the sunset
Lies my destiny
Where the purple mountains
Lie in deep tranquillity
There I’ll find the treasure
Of love eternally

Just beyond the sunset
Waits someone so fair
Just beyond the sunset
All alone they wait there
Their hair is golden
The colour of the sand
Their eyes sparkle in the night
Like diamonds in your hand

Just beyond the sunset
Lies a home for me
Where the world is peaceful
Like a paradise should be
Just beyond the sunset
Someday is where you’ll find me

Written - July or Aug 1966
