Loved ones are precious
I know this for a fact
And when you lose one
It’s like an attack
I've lost some loved ones
To many different things
Like pictures of love you pass

your love was my precious child.
As a recall slip like the fog
enters into my thought
your love was all mine....

Anything is Possible
(One of the classic inspirational poems)
If there was ever a time to dare,
to make a difference,
to embark on something worth doing,
IT IS NOW.
Tom Odell - "Hold Me"

I've had a drink, you probably think my judgement is impaired
And it's getting late now, we're a long...

By my side we jump into the night,
