No Other Love.
Foreword: This piece is about my childhood memories of lazy Sunday afternoons. I was brought up listening to lots of different recording artists. From Leo Sayer, Paul Simon, Neil Diamond, to Barbara Striesand amongst many others. Our family Sundays following lunch were usually spent listening to music. My mum and dad singing along to the albums they so loved. I would usually be found drawing or writing a story, and my brother would be reading or drawing too. This is my take on those memories for me.
Sitting here listening to Leo
Paul, Neil and the rest
Youthful memories flood my mind
Those days really were the best..
Lazy Sundays with you singing along
Me, with my brother feeling safe
Vinyl crackle made me feel so warm
These memories no one can take..
There was a time when we were down and out
Barbara would sing
I watched the twinkle in your eyes
Every day without fail, love you would bring..
I lived for those afternoons with you all
Settle down, just to be
So much love I have
Tears cloud my vision, hard to see..
Built on solid foundations
Of who I am is down to you
Letting me be me
Painful mistakes to see me make as I grew..
No holding back, only encouragement
Is how I remember both of you
So many smiles with laughter
No other love as yours this true.
