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.

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.

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.

A moment of happiness (poem)


Memories are full of happy moments!

A moment of happiness

A moment of happiness, a moment to smile,
A moment to let cheerfulness appear for a while.
A bright sunny morning, the birds greeting the dawn,
Brings a moment of joy as they land on the lawn.
A red sky above you, the birds return to their nest,
Brings a moment of calm as the sun goes for its rest.

A moment of fun, to let your laughter flow again,
Singing out loud on your own, or dancing in the rain.
A moment shared with friends, of playing games in the park,
Or that moment when you all lit candles in the dark.
A moment spent remembering the fun in your past,
Returns with happy memories that were made
to last.

Any moment is precious, you have many inside,
All waiting for you to let them pop up outside.
Just look up at the stars or feel the wind in your hair,
Let your mind seize this moment and enjoy what’s there.
Even in darkness you can find a moment of light,
For within your heart, happiness is always in sight.

Secret dens and Pirate ships (poem)


Children games in the park

Secret dens and Pirate ships

In the bushes beside the park fence there’s a ‘secret den’,
– Although if you know where to look, it’s easy to see.
Currently it’s a place of adventure for some children,
Playing as secret agents, under its canopy.
On the park bench their parents listen as they play,
They are searching for ‘the baddies’, laughing as they do.
Then silence descends as they find a ‘new secret way’,
To crawl along, bringing them back into their parents view.

Alongside the park there’s a stream where the ducks float,
Waiting eagerly for bread that the children might throw.
Two children arrive at its side carrying their toy boat,
Setting it down upon the stream, it sails off in full flow.
To them it is a Pirate ship sailing the seven seas,
Ready to find buried treasure upon some distant shore.
‘Land ahoy’ they cry as it stops in the bend by the trees,
Picking it up, they go back and set it sailing once more.

A golden ball of summer sunshine (poem)


Nature welcomes a new day

A golden ball of summer sunshine

A golden ball of summer sunshine,
Balancing upon the land at dawn.
A promise that the weather is fine,
Just as a new day is being born.

The sunlight touches the tops of trees,
As it releases them from the night.
The dawn chorus sing their melodies,
As the birds welcome the summer light.

Rabbits emerging from underground,
Welcome the sunshine of this new day.
Nature is everywhere to be found,
As the sunshine sweeps the night away.

Through troubled times I will walk beside you (poem)


I will help you to get through

Through troubled times I will walk beside you

Through troubled times I will walk beside you,
I will give a helping hand,
And if upon the road of life, you stumble,
Then I will help you to stand.

Through the trials and troubles we meet in life,
I will be there night and day,
And when upon life’s road, there is only strife,
Then I will seek a better way.

Through the struggles and hardships we must face,
I will bring hope to your door,
And then we can go searching to find a place,
Where harmony lives once more.

Through love and kindness, compassion and hope,
I will share my heart with you,
And so upon the road of life, we will cope,
As we find our way to the new.

Take a moment to smile (poem)


A smile can make such a difference to our lives.
(This is a double rhyme poem)

Take a moment to smile

Take a moment to smile, just here in this place,
And after a while, it will cheer up your face.
Now spread it around for anyone to see,
Let it be easily found by others, for free!

If your smile finds another, that it can reach out to,
Then you can help each other, on this day, to get through.
For a smile will bring hope, in those times of great sorrow,
Helping us to cope and find a better tomorrow.

Take a moment to smile, let it enter within,
When facing a sad trial, it will help you to win.
It will lighten your load, releasing your sadness,
Brightening up life’s road, with a touch of gladness.

For a smile can help all, both inside and out,
Gives us strength to stand tall, helps us to tackle our doubt.
If it is too hard to do, just go for a grin,
Then let it seep through you, and your smile will begin.

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.
