The First of March

Four years today, that can’t be right I slept like a baby, all through the night. No bad thoughts invaded my dreams No one woke up, from hearing me scream! The house is just as I left it last night Bars on the windows, doors all locked tight. No evidence here, that something’s amiss No […]

I am your very dear friend

I am your very dear friend, she said Secretly wishing, that I were dead! Always greeted me with a smile Trying so hard, to not run a mile. You asked and I gave, you took and I let you You never say thanks, you always forget to! Time after time, I’ve wanted to ask, Why […]

The Running Man

Run, run, run as fast as you can, I can’t catch you, you’re the running man. How on earth did I find myself here? If I’ve really offended, well I had no idea! I never insulted you, well not to your face, So why are we having this long pointless race? For some unknown reason, […]

I just want to write one happy verse

I just want to write one happy verse That stays full of promise, and doesn’t get worse. Recalling the good things that happen in life. How rewarding to be a good mother and wife. The days I feel honoured to just be alive Conquering each mountain one step at a time Not easy to do […]

Twinkle twinkle little star

Twinkle twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are. Could you be gifts from those we love? Who now reside in heaven above. A sign from those so dearly missed That the here ever after, does exist. Is that why a robins breast is red? They catch the soul as it leaves the dead. […]

Does anyone listen to a word that I say?

Does anyone listen to a word that I say?. I find myself wondering on a typical day. When I open my mouth to utter a word Can anything I say be actually heard? Am I speaking a language that’s foreign to you?. That you can’t comprehend that doesn’t get through. I thought I spoke clearly, […]

Have you ever been somewhere where you’re not wanted

Have you ever been somewhere where you’re not wanted where you’re not needed, your opinion not heeded? Ever been someplace you’ve felt ill at ease whatever you do, no one can you please. Have you ever ignored all your gut instincts discarded advice, however intrinsic. Have you ever said yes, when it should have been […]

I wandered lonely as a cloud

I wandered lonely as a cloud, that floats up high o’er vale and hill When all at once I saw a crowd, a host of golden daffodils. They reached as far as the eye could see, in perfect golden harmony. So proud they stood, as if hand in hand, I never did see a merrier […]

Another birthday, that you’ve missed

Another birthday, that you’ve missed, Two more cheeks, you didn’t kiss. One more gift, you won’t be buying, No more ribbons, will you be tying. No more party dresses, lovingly chosen, No more toys bought, just to be broken. No more books to read, no lullabys to sing, No more popping round, to see if […]

Light or shade, shade or light?

Light or shade, shade or light? Which is wrong, which is right?. Don’t ask me, I haven’t a clue, I never know, what’s best to do. I try to be nice, happy to help, The truth is, I can’t even look after myself! I’m a very good listener, or so it seems, Whilst you are […]
