Just let tomorrow come (poem)

Your life will get better

Just let tomorrow come

I can see that the tears upon your face are drying,
Even if to me, those tears you are still denying.
I know to yourself, that you want to keep it all within,
That in this pit of sadness, you feel you cannot win.
But your life is not over, it has only just begun,
And you will find in your life, that there is still a sun.
Just let tomorrow come, but for now just let things go,
Just let tomorrow come, for now just let your tears flow.

Do not fight this moment, but just leave this day alone,
Such a depth of sadness, you have never before known.
Your life may be in pieces, or that is how it seems,
But beyond all this sadness, you still have all your dreams.
You still have a future, it’s only lost for today,
And tomorrow’s happiness will, to you find its way.
Just let tomorrow come, but for now just let things be,
Just let tomorrow come, for now let your tears fall free.

Today will not be easy, and your life may feel slow,
I know you are convinced that this pain will never go.
But trust me when I say to you, this will never last,
That with a little patience, it will become your past.
Once this day is over, things will not then feel so blue,
For you will smile again, and the sun will shine on you.
Just let tomorrow come, but for now just hug your heart,
Just let tomorrow come, for a better life will start.

Nature knows the way, naturally (poem)

The wonderful work of nature

Nature knows the way, naturally

Let a rainbow be simply a rainbow,
Let it just bring colour into the sky.
Let all the stars twinkle and the moon glow,
Without having to know the reason why.

Let the butterfly spread out its wide wings,
As the caterpillar turns into one.
Let’s just enjoy all the beauty that it brings,
Without having to work out how it’s done.

Let the tides rise and fall upon the beach,
As the world rotates through night and day.
Let natures beauty be within our reach,
Without trying to guide it on its way.

Let the birds fly over the oceans wide,
Over the lands, knowing just where to go.
Let’s enjoy watching them from the bird hide,
Without understanding just how they know.

Let’s enjoy our natural world at its best,
Its seasons, the sunshine, the mountain view.
Let’s walk through the wonders of the forest,
Without trying to reason it all through.

In this world of ours, nature finds its way,
Without handbooks, everything still grows.
So let’s just enjoy what’s we see each day,
When it comes to what to do, nature knows.

A country walk (poem)

The pleasure of the countryside

A country walk

With a spring in the step, happiness in the heel,
The joy of the journey in your feet you now feel.
The hills lay before you, the dales in between,
And on the horizon great mountains are seen.

With the first gentle steps along the old track,
Your stress slides away, like a weight off your back.
Trees to your left and a brook to your right,
And when turning a corner, the birds take flight.

You stop for a rest to watch clouds drifting by,
And the skylarks and kestrels, high above fly.
A blue lake can be seen in the valley below,
Around you the bees and butterflies show.

A new view appears as you go round each bend,
As the sunset begins, so the journey must end.
Time for a rest, to relax and put up your feet,
Whilst the hedgehogs go seeking their supper

A day of my own to enjoy (poem)

The freedom of a day

A day of my own to enjoy

Let the breeze blow through my hair,
Upon this day, clear and bright.
My time is my own to bare,
I am off to find some new sight.

Maybe a walk to the park,
With its woodlands by the lake.
There’s hours yet before its dark,
And plenty of paths to take.

There’s a one-day antiques fair,
With stalls in the playing field.
I could wander around there,
And see what goodies they yield.

I could treat myself to tea,
There’s that canal pub to try.
Let them bring the food to me,
As I watch the boats go by.

Perhaps I’ll head to the beach,
And walk barefoot in the sand.
That old lighthouse, I could reach,
If I walk round the headland.

I could go to the cliff top,
In time to watch the sunset.
At the food van I could stop,
Where a coffee I can get.

In the end it matters not,
Which out of all these, I choose.
For this free day I have got,
So in the end, I cannot lose.

I have failed, once more, at giving up (poem)

I just can’t seem to give up

I have failed, once more, at giving up

I have failed, once more, at giving up,
I just can’t seem to walk down that road.
I find myself sipping from hopes cup,
And then repositioning my load.
There are moments when, just for a while,
I’ll stop, saying ‘here I will remain’
And yet, once I choose to, I then smile
Knowing full well I will start again.

I may sit down, saying ‘I give in’
And be determined to stay just there.
But my restlessness will soon kick in,
When I can sense a change in the air.
There’s always that feeling there is more,
If I carry on for one more day.
That if I just step through that next door,
Something better will then come my way.

Besides, what’s the point of staying here?
This is not where I wanted to be.
Each step I take brings the future near,
And only in there will I be free.
Each Tomorrow brings a new promise,
That yesterday cannot now provide.
What’s the point of sitting in life’s mist,
So I’ll stand up, and walk with a stride.

Kindness, A user’s guide (poem)

Let kindness guide you

Kindness, a user’s guide

Within all of us, kindness can be found,
Just take a piece and add it to your day.
Keep it with you, wherever you are bound,
And let kindness guide you along your way.

So how can you find it when you are lost?
Can it be found amid uncertainty?
Know this, that kindness comes without a cost,
It is found all around, because it’s free.

Even within emptiness, kindness lives,
Even in confusion, kindness will grow,
Even in times of hardship, kindness gives,
The light of kindness is always on show.

Kindness can soon appear within a smile,
At a moment when someone is in need.
That tells them that their struggle is worthwhile,
That one day soon, their journey will succeed.

Kindness can be a hand that’s reaching out,
Or a gesture that says it is okay.
Kindness can restore hope that’s lost in doubt,
Use it to help others to find their way.

Kindness is found within a gentle voice,
Giving them encouragement to be strong.
Saying to them there is a better choice,
To not give up and just to carry on.

Kindness is a gift there for you to share,
That once given, may fade away from view.
Yet, kindness never leaves you standing there,
For kindness is still living within you.

A quiet spot of your own (poem)

A moment for yourself

A quiet spot of your own

A quiet spot far away from the crowd,
Just a quiet place where nothing’s too loud.
Somewhere your life can settle for a while,
Instead of a frown, recover a smile.
A place of calm where your tension eases,
Where your mind can drift to where it pleases.
Somewhere special, where your stress can depart,
A place where you time is ruled by your heart.

A quiet spot where you can take a rest,
To just sit back and see life at its best.
A chance for your inner spirit to renew,
Opening your eyes, enjoying the view.
Closing your eyes, reflecting within,
Letting the dreams of tomorrow begin.
And when from this spot, it’s time to depart,
Tuck a piece of it’s peace within your heart.

The promise of a New Year (poem)

A new year has arrived

The promise of a New Year

The promise of a New Year,
The promise of hope is near,
As the path into your future begins anew,
The promise of a fresh start,
The promise of a new part,
Where your role in life seeks out a different view.

A chance to let go the old,
A chance to clear out the cold,
To turn and seek a new life towards the light.
A chance to let sadness end,
A chance to become a friend,
To reach out to strangers who come into your sight.

Your life can turn a new page,
Step out of histories cage,
Open the door and see the dawn of a new day.
Place your feet on life’s new track,
Shake off the past from your back,
And let the promise of a new year guide your way.

I do not have to be the best (poem)

There’s nothing wrong with just being yourself

I do not have to be the best

Must I be the best? Can I not just rest?
What is wrong with this life I have now found?
I could climb higher, become a flyer,
But I like having my feet on the ground.

Must I run ahead? Jump out of my bed,
Every morning, must I start life fast?
If I stand behind, more peace I might find,
Perhaps a tranquil moment that will last.

I see a bright light, filling up my sight,
Saying to me ‘here fame and glory be.’
But all that I find, is that I am blind,
And life’s beauty I can no longer see.

I quite like my life, there’s not too much strife,
I have enough to be content right here.
For here I can smile, and rest for a while
Going slow to let contentment stay near.

Three wishes for your sadness (poem)

My wishes for your healing

Three wishes for your sadness

I am wishing that today you find a smile within you,
A day that is full of sunshine, with clear skies in view.
A day where harmony and peace are floating all around,
A day full of joyfulness, and where happiness is found.

I am wishing that you will discover upon this day,
That there is a better life for you, a much better way.
That there is just here, a path to lead you back to the light,
That will bring you back into a world so alive and bright.

I am wishing for you that your tomorrow will bring,
A world where your hope can, once more, take off on a wing.
A world where you land safely with your feet on the floor,
A world where I can hear your laughter ring out once more.

I am making for you a gift of these three wishes,
And wrapping them all up with lots of love and kisses.
Please accept them from me and then unwrap them just here,
They are to be stored in your heart, kept forever near.
