A Helping Hand (poem)


We could all do with a helping hand.

A Helping Hand

A helping hand can be given during times of great need,
A chance to help friends and strangers, by doing a good deed.
You may not know just what it is for them that you can do,
But they will know just what they need, to help to get them through.

A helping hand can fix and mend something that is broken,
Guided on what they need, from the words that they have spoken.
Maybe a shelf has slipped, or there’s a problem with their door!
Soon you give them a smile, which tells them all is well once more.

A helping hand can fetch and carry items for someone,
Moving things from room to room, or getting their shopping done.
Once the task’s completed and there is nothing more to do,
You can relax, have a drink and eat a biscuit (or two.)

A helping hand comes as a pair, twice as much you can give!
By their actions, your hands will help others to cope and live.
Stretch out your hand whenever you see something you can do,
Then in your times of need, others will do the same for you.

Sitting on the fence (Cat poem)


An indecisive cat!

Sitting on the fence

Sitting on the fence, the cat casually looks around,
Should he stay up here, or go back down to the ground?
The sun is pleasant and he has enjoyed the view,
However, he can sense, that a cat nap is due.
He has been working quite hard, watching birds fly pass,
So now all he needs, is a nice patch of soft grass.

Sitting on the fence, he simply cannot decide,
Into which of these gardens he now wants to reside?
Then, from behind him, he hears an opening door,
They are letting their dog into the garden once more!
Their dog’s old and harmless, but she can be such a pest!
So into the other garden, he descends, for his rest.

Once down from the fence, he seeks out the perfect spot,
Slightly in the shade, so he doesn’t get too hot!
His fur needs some attention, some cleaning required,
Washing from ear tips to tail, he’s now feeling quite tired.
Curling up in the grass, his tail touching his nose,
A final gentle purr, then off to sleep he goes.

Helping a world in trouble (poem)


In times of crisis, we can help each other.

Helping a World in Trouble

When troubles come to our door, when the world has gone astray,
When yesterday is no more, and the future’s lost its way.
When no one knows what to do, other than just to wait and see,
When we’ve lost our way through, and do not know what to be.

We can live within today, look for where the needs are now,
Help others to find their way, even if we are not sure how.
This moment is for giving, a chance to help where we can,
For our life is for living, and helping our fellow man.

It may not be an easy choice, it may seem hard for today,
But if others hear your voice, then you can help guide their way.
If you can keep on going, clearing the path as you do,
Then to others you are showing, that there is a way through.

These troubles will pass one day, and our life will recover,
For now, just do what you may, and then you will discover,
That this world we can restore, a better future we can find,
That we can move on once more, with our lives recombined.
