Passion Tears – Advent in Poetry


It’s been a while.

So my last blog post here was over a year and a half ago. I guess when I stopped working for myself full time I felt I had less to write about and document. In retrospect of course I know that’s definitely not true, in fact being a full time employee is teaching my an awful lot! And as an entrepreneur on a sabbatical (if you will) I think I have a lot I should be sharing. So maybe I will recommence blogging here shortly.

Anyway in the meantime I’ve started sharing some of my old love poems (written between 2005-2009ish) over at – I’m sharing one a day for the whole month of December, a sort of Advent in Poetry.

Some of them were previously shared on this blog, but I recovered them all en masse when I recently got my old hard drive fixed and some have made be laugh, some have made me cry and some have made me cringe!

I hope you enjoy them and I look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Alexis Jordan – Happiness

For some reason this song really resonates with me right now.

Alexis Jordan entered America’s Got Talent at the tender age of 14 and has come a long way since then- Jay Z is now her manager! She is in good hands 🙂

Over Formentera

Watching the sun
Rise over the Isle
The sea glistens bright
as he greets her and smiles.

His mistress moon gone
Along with the night
And here is his Goddess
Taking her flight.

Ascend as she does
With beauty + might
The sea looking on
With desire + pride.

He longs to be near her
Reunited again
The only way
Is if he becomes rain.

She lights up his world
At the break of each day
Warming his depths
With her beautiful face.

Teena Marie – Portuguese Love

Thanks to the darling Xian for this GEM.

You Could Be Happy and I Won’t Know.

Is it too late to remind you how we were?

You could be happy, and I won’t know. You could be happy, I hope you are.

You made me happier than I’ve been by far. x

Sunday Sessions 29…

Love. Complications. Drama. Tears. Pain. Questions. Loss…it’s all beautiful.

“Anybody could’ve told you right from the start it’s ’bout to fall apart”

Sunday Sessions 27…

This track says it all…all we can do is keep moving (4WD).


My wonderful lil sis took me to see Passion last night an intimate concert as a surprise ‘pick-me-up’ treat.

What an Angel. Thank you Em. x

Passion, who’d flown over all the way from San Fran to bless us, was absolutely amazing!

Here are three tracks to give you a taster of the soul food we got served (these songs really resonate with me):

For more marvellous melody, check Passion’s YouTube channel.

If you can though, try and see him live, he is touring the UK for the rest of the month!

Side note: He has a beautiful Faith.

Peace, love and Passion

Sade sings it best:

Mums will love this too.
