One Step Ahead

I tried to find my way back to you

but the path had mysteriously dissolved

There were things i wanted to tell you

many things i wanted to share with you

now they are left dangling like split ends

I stopped there for some time flatfooted

At the place where we left off

That space where we laughed without a care

Enjoying each other’s company

Feeling like every day was a holiday

And believing it would never end

Those days of fire

There was an air of sadness left behind

I smell something familiar but it was gone in a second

No amount of deep breathing could return that day

Only fragments remained

Sprinkled like fairy dust and scattered too sparsely to collect

It was gone and sadly reminding me was a song in the distance

A tune you once hummed while you were working

I loved to watch you as you carefully handled things

Joyfully and playfully I see our hearts

Skipping over the beat

Like teenagers fumbling with love

We shared many moments

which i had strung together like pearls

and methodically I rotate each one

to relive the precious feelings

I filled the spaces in between with plastic beads

many colours shapes and sizes

they were reminders that did not compare

nothing compares

your eyes sparkled with every smile you opened

every gentle touch was infused with love

the many chuckles in resistance

struggling to hold back laughter

confirming the snug fit we had found

within each other

the mischievous one and

the rebel without a cause

Where are you now?

I think of you so often

It’s because I’m looking inside

this open heartscape

How will I find you again?

I suspect you discovered your wings

And flew ahead of us

So I will keep moving forward

With loving hope and renewed faith

Believing you may be clearing the road ahead

For us stragglers

Always one step ahead and ready for anything

I love that about you

That’s what keeps me going

Pussyfoot hot on the trail….. Only one step behind

SPLIT ENZ – One Step Ahead

 

What did you say ?

Follow this path with Heart but always take your brain with you

I’m sure that’s what PussyFoot heard

The Head and the Heart…

When these two can work together, instead of competing in separate lanes, You know you’re on the right track

The Mind often recognises what the Heart is denying then argues with it

And at times the Heart will feel things the Mind can’t explain forcing both to intuit

Harmony always points to happiness

If a choice of trust can replace suspicion these two could work beautifully together

It could change things forever

PussyFoot Whiskers and Guardian Whispers

hold the course…

…Wherever You Are

Wherever you are
It’s 3 a.m. and I’m awake
Imagine the light
Upon your blue transparent face
Through coloured glass
It filters down to warmest red
Faded
I’m the one who reads your mind
See my life in your design
True companion at your side
You’re gracious and good
When all around is turning bad
Restless and brave
When laid upon suburban grass
Your timing is right
Remove the sad persistent thought
Hold the course
I’m the one who reads your mind
See my life in your design
True companion at your side
I’ll give you something, for when I’m not around,
To make you smile
And if you think it then it must be true
If only I could make it through
Climb into my bed,
Wherever you are
Wherever you are
Your timing is good,
Remove the sad persistent thought,
Hold the course
I’m the one who reads your mind
See my life in your design
True companion at your side
I’ll leave you something for when I’m not around,
To make you smile,
Outside that wasteland
And if only I could make it through
If you think it then it must be true
Ill be Wherever you are

Wherever you are

falling at your feet

PussyFoot went weak in the knees !!

the HIGHlight on my final day at Byron Bluesfest… Neil Finn

video footage 10 years earlier

Anyway, pussyfoot squeezed in down the front at Crossroads and when this Kiwi behind shouted out We LOVE you Neil… Neil looked straight down toward PussyFoot and said Thank You

Neil then proceeded to strum PussyFoots third favourite Crowded House song Fall at Your Feet and you guessed it … tears rained down on me and the scarf of the lady in front… she cried too and we hugged (you had to be there)

Thanks Neil and your band, especially Nick for his long distance travelled from Ireland to be there – Awesome concert loveLoveLOVE
