A Place Of Love

Arrivals and departures
Coaches, trains and planes
The Station and the airport
A place of love and pain
We greet and meet our loved ones
Say hello and hug and cry
It’s so wonderful to see you
Been too long, how time flies
I’ve watched in joy and sadness
I’ve seen it all go on
Friends reunited and lovers in despair
The height and depth
Of our emotions
All are gathered there
The station or the airport
Is where we show we care
At a time of goodbyes
The silence sometimes deafens
Lovers hug and sigh
“Until we meet again my love
It’s au revoir and not goodbye!”
My thoughts turn to the hospital
Where babes are born and people die
Arrivals and departures
Make us smile and make us cry

The Nature Of Being


A poem written by Andrew Paul Smith​ 160224

What was and is and yet might be
The future, present, past
Maybe you’d like to experience
A contentment that can last?

There is no “there” there’s only here
You are what you want to be
Treating what isn’t as if it were
Will make it reality

Your life is only being
You can’t be ever there
You are, and there’s no delineation
To lay the conundrum bare

Externally your life projects
Into the hologram of life
But the world of four dimensions
Most of us entice

And yet reality is only real
In the unchanging world within
It’s only when you realise this
Your being will be king

You can command reality
Your are the captain of your ship
And love is the only reason
That we all exist

My Final Victory

When we know who we are
Our faults and failings shouldn’t bar
Us from the life we desire
We merely need to change
If we get some outside help
We can work on ourselves
And if needs be we can delve
Into our own personality and rearrange

Myself I know I dream
Then don’t follow through it seems
But if I join a team
They will help me
To stop me having the fate
Of one who procrastinates?
‘Cause I’m sick and tired I just hate
Not becoming what I see

I here and now declare
That I will pay the fare
At last I’ll take the dare
I will complete
Every dream I’ve ever had
I’ll fulfil each phase and fad
Not walk away and be sad
Get in the kitchen and like the heat

I make my statement now
To follow through and how
Before I take my bow
I will become
The one I intended to
Since I realised it’s true
We become what we view
It will be fun

To never give up
To always have a full cup
There’s nothing that will stop
My final victory
I’m determined my minds set
To never ever let
My mind forget
To end this misery
