Catching a smile (poem)


Smiles are good for you

Catching a smile

I saw you come walking along the street,
With a cheerful tapping of your feet.
You had such a sweet smile upon your face,
As you walked on by, at quite a pace.
You rushed past me, your mind was elsewhere,
That you hardly knew that I was there.

I will never know just why your sweet smile,
Touched my world for such a little while.
Your happiness was so easy to see,
That it reached within to a part of me.
It brought a smile to me upon this day,
As I carried on, along my own way.

It made me think just how a smile can grow,
From a seed from someone I do not know.
That when you catch a smile, just by chance,
From a passing stranger, from only a glance,
It can cheer you up, so what I shall do,
Is to show a smile, to be caught by you.

Love means more than just a kiss (poem)


Love is found everywhere

Love means more than just a kiss

Love means more than just a kiss shared in the dark,
Love means more than walking, hand in hand, through the park.
Love means more that spending a lifetime together,
For love is more than lovers promising forever.

Loves gentle hand is found in those kind deeds that you do,
From words of encouragement that help to get you through.
Love is found in a thoughtful mind thinking this day,
Of how it can help others to find a better way.

Love picks up all the pieces other hearts leave behind,
Then patches them up with happiness for you to find.
Love waits patiently until you are ready to mend,
For love is found in anyone who is also a friend.

I will meet you again in the spring (love poem)


For all those separated from their loved ones

I will meet you again in the spring

I will meet you again in the spring,
Just for now, we must stay apart.
But when the time comes, then I will bring,
All of the love that I have in my heart.
Let these long days of winter drift by,
Let’s remember just how close we are.
We still share the same moon in the sky,
And can still wish upon the same star.

I will meet you again in the spring,
I shall think of you each winter’s day.
Letting your love pluck at my heartstring,
With the sweet melodies it can play.
Even now the spring plants are growing,
In defiance of winter’s cold stance,
The first of their green tips are showing,
Just wander outside and take a glance.

I will meet you again in the spring,
When the blossom appears on the trees
When the birds in the garden all sing,
To the accompaniment of the bees.
But for now, in my heart I will hold you,
Until we can be together once more.
Let our good memories guide us through,
Until spring, when I’ll walk through your door.

Quietly on my own (poem)


Tranquility within yourself

Quietly on my own

I know I seem quiet and shy,
Wandering around on my own.
Drifting whilst the world passes by,
Or sitting somewhere all alone.

If that’s what you see, then please go,
For I live far beyond your sight.
I see a world you cannot know,
One full of harmony and light.

For within quietness, I find peace,
Within stillness, a chance to see.
My inner soul, I can release,
And within myself, I am free.

Bedtime child (poem)


The end of a busy childhood day

Bedtime child

The story telling is over, the book is placed back upon the shelf,
Carefully going round the lamp to avoid knocking off the elf,
A peacefulness upon their face, a busy day now at an end,
Reading, writing and drawing, then playing with a friend.

Straightening up the coronet, putting the cover on the crown,
Picking up the tablecloth that became that day, a gown,
The jigsaw’s left abandoned, scattered around the floor,
The animals have lost their box, found hiding behind the door.

The bed moves slightly, a final adjustment to where they lay,
Before descending deeper into the dream world where they play,
Then leaving them to their dreaming, and switching off the light,
Another childhood day now over, and another restful night.

The stones of forgiveness (poem)


 Forgiveness can be found within 

The Stones of Forgiveness

The stones of forgiveness lay within the pool of pain
Each a small piece that can make you whole again
Reach into the pool and find forgiveness within
Release it from the pool and let the healing begin

Hold a stone in your hand so the forgiveness can start
Open up your fingers and release it from your heart
With the freeing of a stone the pool’s becoming clearer
The bottom of ‘complete forgiveness’ now a little nearer

Let every stone be released to where there is the need
Until, from the pool of pain, every stone is freed
The pool becomes calm, its clarity still and true
The peace of ‘complete forgiveness’ now laying within you

The joy of living (poem)


We can bring joy to ourselves and to those around us

The Joy of Living

The joy of living and giving,
Brings a happiness to us all.
To be loving and forgiving,
Helps to heal a wound if we fall.

The joy of caring and sharing,
Brings harmony into our life.
With your own life, be sparing,
And to others, help ease their strife.

The joy of being and seeing,
Lets us know our humanity.
If our inner peace we are freeing,
It will help to bring serenity.

The joy of knowing and showing,
That a better person we are.
Helps the world to keep on growing,
And lets our kindness travel far.

The gift of a smile (poem)


The gift of a smile

This poem looks at the power that a smile has for making this world a better place and how it can reach out to others when words are hard to find, crossing the barriers of language and culture.

The gift of a smile

A smile can bring forgiveness and a healing to the heart.
A chance to bring a nearness to those who are far apart.
A chance to bridge a divide and for hope to start again,
Love and joy it cannot hide, nor can bitter words remain.

A smile can save a moment, a key to tensions door,
A moving to atonement, a chance to reassure.
It gives a silent greeting to a stranger who’s in need,
Eases stress in a meeting and causes fear to recede.

A smile can bring happiness to those who are feeling low,
Release them from their sadness and help their spirit grow.
Help an injured soul to mend and to heal their pain within,
Brings anger to an end, so a better life can begin.
