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.

A blank piece of paper (poem)

A place for the imagination

A blank piece of paper

A blank piece of paper sitting there in front of you,
Revealing nothing, but with so much there you can do.
A place you can write or draw, the choice is yours this day,
Just pick up a pen or pencil and doddle away!
It doesn’t have to make sense, just release what’s in your mind,
It’s amazing what’s in there, waiting for you to find.
Perhaps just a few squiggles, to the top or to the side,
Or slap bang in the middle, a circle can reside.

Some words could be written, whatever comes into your head,
You could write them backwards, or upside-down instead.
Once you start writing, more words may start to come along
Who knows, you could even end up writing a new song.
You could add in a drawing, fill up an empty space,
Lots of little doddles going all over the place.
When you have done and there’s nothing left you want to try,
You could make a paper aeroplane and let it fly.

A perfect moment (poem)

Contentment just for a moment

A perfect moment

A perfect moment is surrounding me,
A moment of peace and of harmony,
Though I could not say just why this should be,
There is just something here, setting me free.

Just now within this moment I belong,
It could be that I am singing a song,
Or maybe outside, just strolling along,
Whatever it may be, I now feel strong.

A perfect moment, a sense of pure calm,
There’s no need to worry, there’s no alarm.
Happiness is resting within my palm,
The breeze of blissfulness brushing my arm.

I shall cherish this moment while it is here,
Relish this contentment, holding it near.
But I will let it go, let it disappear,
For I know more perfect moments will appear.

Living within a happy moment (poem)


Happiness is alive in you

Living within a happy moment

Living within a happy moment, so cheerful to know,
A chance to enjoy life and to let this memory grow.
To relish this moment, to let it live inside you,
So that it can be remembered, recalled into view.
Once this moment’s over, to be safely tucked away,
A joy forever more, to brighten any dull day.

Whenever you meet a dark day, with not much to see
Just sit back for a while and set that memory free.
It’s with you forever more, through all time and space,
Just let it drift on back and bring a smile to your face.
Let it lead you through sadness and out the other side,
Forever in your heart, that memory shall abide.

The Passing of Tomorrow (poem)


A life in a day

The Passing of Tomorrow

Tomorrow comes sailing into sight,
As yesterday starts sailing away.
Briefly they meet in the deep dark night,
Where, for a moment, they share a day.

Tomorrow’s cloak sparkles in the night air,
Yesterday’s cloak has fallen to the floor.
But only for a while does it lay there,
Before tomorrow picks it up once more.

For yesterday’s cloak shows where we have been,
As tomorrow stores it away in the mind.
Becoming a memory of all that was seen,
Sitting forever in there for us to find.

In today, tomorrow passes on through,
Following the footsteps left by yesterday.
Bringing to us a day that is brand new,
Before, it too, begins to sail away.

A Reflection of Beauty (poem)


Where can beauty really be found?

A Reflection of Beauty

The person in the mirror who is looking back at me,
Must be myself, for there is no one else it can ever be.
Every curve, every bump, everything there is true,
And there is no possible chance that it could ever be you.
But what does it matter, that reflection I see in there?
It means nothing at all, no matter how long I stand and stare.
Whether I am tall or short, overweight or very thin,
It is within my heart that the echoes of myself begin.
It is only the surface of me that is reflected back,
For the beauty of my true self, does that reflection lack.

My true self can be seen in all that I do and in what I say,
The kindness that I give to others I may met upon this day.
My thoughtfulness in any deeds for those around me that I do,
All show the person that I truly am, to others and to you.
If I can make someone laugh once more, when they are feeling low,
If I can encourage someone, when their life is running slow.
If I can pick someone up and carry them that extra yard,
If I can make someone’s life easier, when their life becomes hard.
Then beautiful is what I am, for my beauty spreads right through,
If all you see is the surface, then I have only pity for you.

An anti-negativity day (poem)


Let’s have a day full of good bits.  

An anti-negativity day

An anti-negativity day, that’s what this day is going to be!
A day for releasing everything that has ever worried me.
A day for throwing out all of that inner sadness and sorry,
For I know full well that they will return, quite happily, tomorrow.
A day for doing pleasant things with only pleasant thoughts in mind,
To take a look around and see what enjoyable things I can find.
Perhaps I will just sit and rest, or at least that’s how this day will start,
Then maybe find an activity that will bring enjoyment to my heart.

Let’s just read the good news and ignore any bad bits there may be,
And leave it to the rest of the world to do the worrying for me.
A day of anti-negativity, taken just once in a while,
Will give my tired soul a rest, and a chance to do things with a smile.
For what does it matter if today is one of sunshine or rain?
I intend to search the good bits for some happiness to regain.
Let tomorrow come along well after the setting of the sun,
But from now until then, I’ll let this day be one of peace and fun.
