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.

Let the good memories remain (poem)


The good memories are there inside

Let the good memories remain

Let the good memories remain,
Remember the joy and laughter.
Remember the good times again,
And the smiles will follow after.

Perhaps sadness lingers within,
Maybe just for now you feel blue.
But a brighter day will begin,
Chasing those shadows out of you.

The sun is there every day,
The stars are there every night.
Now and then clouds get in the way,
But they soon move on, out of sight.

Blues skies bring clearness once more,
Sunshine warms the threads of our heart.
Its light unlocking sadness door,
To allow the heartache to depart.

Let the good memories shine through,
Let the love in your soul burn bright.
Let the happiness out of you,
And walk once more in the sunlight.

Kindness has no barriers (poem)


In a broken world, let us be kind. 

Kindness has no barriers

Kindness has no barriers, there’s no surrounding wall,
You cannot lock it away behind an iron door.
Kindness has no prejudices, it is available to all,
You cannot hide it away beneath the kitchen floor.

Kindness is so gentle, as soft as a floating feather,
Landing gracefully upon a waiting outstretched hand.
Kindness is so strong, it can survive any weather,
With its strength you can help a fallen stranger to stand.

Let kindness be your guiding light whenever darkness falls,
For with it, you can let the light of love shine bold and bright.
Let kindness be your voice, letting others hear its calls,
For with it, you can guide them through the darkest night.

Kindness is the answer when there’s nothing else to be found,
Ready to be used in times when there is no other way.
Giving kindness to yourself, as well as to those around,
Will mend a broken life and help to bring a better day.

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.

Sail away from Sadness (poem)


Set sail to a better life, leaving the sadness behind

Sail away from Sadness

Upon the island of sadness, hope is growing,
Upon the far horizon, dreams light up the sky.
Upon this dawn, the winds of promise are blowing,
Across the seas, the sounds of a new life drift by.
Yesterday’s stillness departs as the night fades away,
With dawn’s beginning, comes a journey towards hope.
Upon that sad island, you were never meant to stay,
You were just tied to its sadness with yesterday’s rope.

Release the rope and let your fears float out of sight,
Let dawns tide sweep you away from yesterday’s beach.
Let the wind of hope sail you towards the light,
Bringing the dreams of tomorrow within your reach.
From the stillness, move to where your life can restart,
Sail away from sadness, leaving the past behind.
Landing in tomorrow with fresh hope in your heart,
Where upon the new beach a new life you will find.
