The light beyond the storm of sadness (poem)

Light will return to our lives

The light beyond the storm of sadness

Beyond the horizon a light will be found,
For this darkness cannot endure forever.
There may be no light just here, looking around,
But it will come, like a change in the weather.

There is no rainstorm that can last a lifetime,
Beyond the storms far horizon, light prevails.
Eventually the bells for clear skies, will chime,
All we need to do is to endure all the gales.

I can see no light there yet for tomorrow,
But I can remember it lived in my past.
So there will be an end to all this dark sorrow,
For it tells me that this darkness cannot last.

So how do we survive this darkness just here?
How can we believe there will be light once more?
Can we make this storm of sadness disappear?
Can we make the world the way it was before?

There is no going back, so let’s just turn around,
Let’s look forward, and with this darkness endure.
Within ourselves, an inner light can be found,
With each other, we can look for a cure.

This darkness will end, but what will we all find?
If we do nothing then the storm would have won.
But if we can reach out and work with one mind,
Then a better world will be seen with the sun.

The playground awakens (poem)

Let the children play

The playground awakens

The playground stands empty, silent, and a little forlorn,
Waiting there for the sunrise to bring with it a new dawn.
Throughout the darkness of the night the playground has laid bare,
It’s swings and roundabouts, in stillness, have been resting there.
Some creatures of the night have travelled through it, once or twice,
A fox, two hedgehogs, and alongside its hedgerows, some mice.

The sun creeps above the horizon, chasing off the night,
On the top of the slide, it deposits dawns early light.
Sliding down it slowly, it reaches over to the swings.
On top of the climbing frame, a robin lands and sings.
A new day has begun, dawns sunlight spread everywhere,
Announcing to all the world that the playground is still there.

Its does not wait too long before the first children arrive,
Its swings and roundabouts, once more, become alive.
The sound of laughter breaks the silence the night left behind,
With the children racing around to see what they can find.
In the playing of their games, new friends they begin to make,
Fun and happiness are found, now the playground is awake.

Sweet love remembered (poem)

You are still with me

Sweet love remembered

The sun once rose upon us, so clear and bright,
A new dawn arrived, from life’s darkness came light.
Love was born, growing so deeply from within,
A world full of promise where our love would win.

Time spent together in the warmth of the sun,
Although if it did rain, life could still be fun.
A coffee that was shared just between us two,
A moment in time just there for me and you.

Laughter and joy we would find every day,
If some tears appeared, they soon faded away.
Walking barefoot together on the seashore,
Memories captured, and stored forever more.

Alas the sunset came and you had to go,
But although you are gone, your love I still know.
Sweet love remembered, kept safely in my heart,
Always a part of me, never to depart.

A frosty early autumn dawn (poem)

Autumn is depositing its frost

A frosty early autumn dawn

The morning sun is rolling across the windowsill,
Nice and bright, but I can see outside there’s been a chill.
Frost has landed upon the lawn during this cold night,
Glistening in the early sun, autumns dawn delight.
Resting on the branches and decorating the wall,
Announcing on this dawn that autumn has come to call.

Putting on my old boots, I shall take a walk outside,
Just a gentle stroll, for it’s far too early to stride.
Leaving my footprints behind me as I wander pass,
The creatures of the night have left their own in the grass.
Upon a frosty branch a robin begins to sing,
The hibernators will soon be sleeping through to spring.

The leaves upon the trees glisten in the rising sun,
The change to their autumn shades has already begun.
This first frost will seal their fate, the trees will let them go,
Floating down to the ground, or to where the wind may blow.
The frost is now melting on this early autumn day,
Soon it will linger longer, now winters on its way.
