The tune was used in adverts for cornetto ice creams.

Just one cornetto, give it to me, delicious ice cream, from Italy etc etc etc

It was of course originally "O Sole Mio".

Song: It's Now or Never
   
     
It's now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it's now or never
My love won't wait.

When I first saw you
with your smile so tender
My heart was captured,
my soul surrendered
I'd spend a lifetime
waiting for the right time
Now that your near
the time is here at last.

It's now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it's now or never
My love won't wait.

Just like a willow,
we would cry an ocean
If we lost true love
and sweet devotion
Your lips excite me,
let your arms invite me
For who knows when
we'll meet again this way

It's now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it's now or never
My love won't wait.

Irene Cara - Flashdance...What a Feeling Lyrics


First, when there's nothing but a slow glowing dream
That your fear seems to hide deep inside your mind
All alone I have cried silent tears full of pride
In a world made of steel, made of stone

Well I hear the music, close my eyes, feel the rhythm
Wrap around, take a hold of my heart

[Chorus:]
What a feeling, bein's believin'
I can't have it all, now I'm dancin' for my life
Take your passion, and make it happen
Pictures come alive, you can dance right through your life

[Solo]

Now I hear the music, close my eyes, I am rhythm
In a flash it takes hold of my heart

[chorus (with ... "now I'm dancing through my life")]

What a feeling

What a feeling (I am music now), bein's believin' (I am rhythm now)
Pictures come alive, you can dance right through your life
What a feeling (I can really have it all)
What a feeling (Pictures come alive when I call)
I can have it all (I can really have it all)
Have it all (Pictures come alive when I call)
(call, call, call, call, what a feeling) I can have it all
(Bein's believin') bein's believin'
(Take your passion, make it happen) make it happen
(What a feeling) what a feeling... [to fade]

It has been a while since I have written and maybe inspired to do so one day soon after my life may settle a bit!  Has anyone written anything new as of late?

Ok, so here we go, this one is called The Pillow



As the coldness of night is upon me my thoughts turn to you.
Soon my eyes start to burn red like the embers of a dying fire.
My tears offer no comfort to my hot cheeks as they fall onto my pillow.
I bury my face into my pillow as if to hide from the world.
And before long my pillow is my closest friend taking the full force of my sobs.
My body starts to shake and quiver as the sobs take control of my breaking heart.
Soon it becomes hard to breathe like a fish out of water.
I'm gasping for life!
As I pull away from my pillow I realise that it offers me no comfort.
I am alone with only thoughts of you,

and nothing more.

My Lonely Angel


To you my lonely Angel, be safe with the knowledge that you have helped me realise my wildest dreams.
And even thought I was never able to live them, I was always happy;
For I was given the greatest gift, dream of all,
you're friendship.
You have been with me all through my life;
you've seen me laugh and cry.
Been the shoulder that has given me comfort during
darkest times.
I know it must not have been easy to have been my friend, sometimes only being able to sit by and
watch the misery that befell me.
At times I could see you standing ever watching with
a tear in your eye.
For those times I am sorry, my misery became yours
and where I should have taken comfort in your
loving arms I shunned you away.
In all my dreaming I had wished that I had had the
chance to give you your dream, whatever it may
have been.
The only thing I can offer you my lonely Angel is
my eternal gratitude and love.
You have been my rock, and as I leave you now I weep, knowing that we will never see each other
again.
I regret that I was never able to give you the love and comfort that you have given me.
Yet, even now, when the dark is creeping upon me you stand as always by my side.

Be well my lonely Angel, my friend, my love.

Reading this out at my Father's Funeral will stay with me until I die

To our One and only Father
No better can be found nor had
Put us on the straight and narrow
And that canít be all that bad
He taught us how to Tat ní fish
And put some dinner on we dish
He learned us to give and take
And how to fend and money make
A canny man who doesnít bend
Whoís spiritís hard can never brake
His words are just and so profound
His manner humble in quiet thought
And a hardened boxer from the ring
Who swiftly educated those he fought
A funny comic who joked in song
He shined the leather on the ball
And bruised a willow bat you know it
But most of all accomplished much
As Ken The Blackcountry Poet

                                 From Andrew and Garry

The looking glass..


I saw my face just yesterday reflecting in the glass,
and many many memories came flooding from the past!
I stood in awe at all I had done, and where my life had come,
I also saw so many times when I turned my back and run.

The reflections I see in this small glass,
hold the memories from my past.
The joy, the sadness, the love, the fear,
all come together in what I see in this mirror.

I can't change the actions that got me here,
and I can't fix the hurt that stems from the fear.
I can only move on in hopes that one year,
I will be able to overcome the fear.

Painful reflections that I see in this glass
reflecting so much of my life from my past.Try as I may to put
it behind , it is etched ever so deeply inside of my mind,
echoing the soul that all of you find.


Looking glass, Looking glass, reflection of me,
maybe today a future  we'll see, and maybe tomorrow is but a dream,
but maybe this time you'll reflect my dreams........

          A JOYOUS HEART

IN this world of KILLING and HURTING and HATE,
WAVES of MISFORTUNE SADNESS and PAIN.

I STAND here TODAY in AWE of it ALL, and STILL in
MY HEART it's the LOVES I recall.

The sadness the pain, yes it's all here,
but what I FEEL most is  the LOSS that I FEAR.

AFRAID to MOVE on, WITHOUT those I LOVE,
AFRAID to STEP forward to FACE what WILL come.

Saying GOODBYE and WALKING away..
and DOING MY best to SEE a NEW DAY.

KEEPING the FAITH I have FOUND to be HARD,
NOT my best STRENGTH with the turn of the CARDS.

GRATEFUL for FRIENDS and LOVES in my LIFE...
for SUNSHINE and STARS and the MOON in the SKY.

For SMILES I SEE from the EYES I've been GIVEN,
LAUGHTER I HEAR in my EARS, SOUNDS like HEAVEN.

A small CHILD'S HAND held tight INSIDE MINE,
The SMELL of a NEWBORN, LIFE is SUBLIME!

All the grief and the sorrow the pain and despair...
All I WILL REMEMBER is the LOVE that I've shared.

In HOPE that some SMALL thing IN HERE I have LEFT,
will, Be of SOME meaning and NOT go ADRIFT!

For ALL WHOM I LOVE and have found RIGHT here,
THANKS for PUTTING UP with ME, for the last couple YEARS!

SLEEPLESS  nights, WELL I've had a FEW,
But ALL, worth the JOY I've HAD, SPENT, sharing with YOU!

YOU  NEVER know what LIFE has for YOU..
You just PLOD ON and DO the BEST  YOU CAN DO!

For ALL of YOU MY LUFFLY Friends..I GIVE my HEART AWAY!
I LOVE YOU ALL, with all my HEART so That's ALL I have to SAY!


LOVE WELL AND LIVE LONG,
Hugs YOU all as ALWAYS.

         Karen W.

Such smiles in here some days can bring. It

makes things warm and happening!

Such a fun and playful atmosphere, thats

what we found tonight in here.

Hey, hey. the world is big and round, and look

just where our friends are found!

So good the learning and the smiles abound,

and laughs cross many miles resound!

Happy day all!

Yup it's always works of art when it comes to neil.
Nothing is absolute. It takes a thousand people to make a stereotype, only one to grind it into the dust.

THE THIRD OF FOUR

Sun being mellow
Had lost itís heat
People felt cold
And stamped their feet
Ground white over
Flaked with frost
Seasons  change
Much to our cost

Trees laid bare
Without a leaf
On the ground
All had come to grief
Crinkly brown tinted with gold
Crunched underfoot by young and old
Spider webs seem out of place
Thick  with dew hang into space

Plant life which we tend to keep
Gently fade away
In need of sleep
Wet dull mornings car wont start
Battery flat fair brakes your heart
Daffodils crocus within their cycle grow
In bitter weather still
Their vivid colour  show


Little snowdrops with bells pure white
Proudly stand throughout savage winters bite
Migrating birds long since  gone
To a climate where
The sun shines on
As flu abounds
Or a runny cold
Signals another years end
Towards making us old

BLACK COUNTY POET

A poem or two from my Late Father
Science is continually evolving. Nothing is set in stone. Question everything and everyone. Always consider vested interests as a reason for miss-direction. But most of all explore and find answers that you are comfortable with

There Is Always One

As you make your way through life
A sinner or a saint
I think the biggest crime of all
Is pretending to be
Something that you ainít
You can talk about things you know
They say they know more
Thatís when people catch them out
And know they are just a bore
If more people enjoyed life
And lived it to the full
Their mates would know
They told the truth
And not a load of bull
