Ne Pas Pleurer-Moi

This piece is taken from my other blog(purely French) and translated

Do not cry when I’m gone .
Do not cry for me at all.
I do not want to be remembered.
I want to disappear like I never existed
Do not lose tears for me.
Just forget me.
That is all I ask

I wrote it when I was very low

Dust and Shadow

《Pulvis et umbra sumus》

“We are but dust and shadow”

Through the highs and lows

Trying to set your world aglow

Little do you know, nothing ever really changes

It’s all the same, as a time long ago

An always recurring cycle

Of trial and error, sucess and failure

Still you keep trying, defeat you won’t accept

Your aim, reach the pinnacle

Happening over and again

As you go about life, each and every day.

C’est la vie you say

But in the end, we are but dust and shadow…



Through Me

Sing in me, Muse,
and through me tell the story…


Sing in me, let your song resonate

Sing in me, let every note sound

Sing in me, let the words be formed

Sing in me, let the melody take shape

Through me, tell the story, tell your story

Through me, find a voice, find your voice

Through me, shed the veil you hide behind

Through me, let others see what I see

Through me, we’ll tell the story

And tell it we shall over and again, for all time

After having wondered what had become of his Mam when his father had passed, Tom is ecstatic to see her. However it is not good news she brings. She has come to ask a favour of Tom. A favour in two parts. First she needs the gold she had left him. Second she wants him to accompany her to her homeland, Greece to help her defeat an old enemy. She is also asking John to come along.
