Sweet love remembered (poem)

You are still with me

Sweet love remembered

The sun once rose upon us, so clear and bright,
A new dawn arrived, from life’s darkness came light.
Love was born, growing so deeply from within,
A world full of promise where our love would win.

Time spent together in the warmth of the sun,
Although if it did rain, life could still be fun.
A coffee that was shared just between us two,
A moment in time just there for me and you.

Laughter and joy we would find every day,
If some tears appeared, they soon faded away.
Walking barefoot together on the seashore,
Memories captured, and stored forever more.

Alas the sunset came and you had to go,
But although you are gone, your love I still know.
Sweet love remembered, kept safely in my heart,
Always a part of me, never to depart.

We are the Earths Guardians (poem)

The Earth is in our care

We are the Earths guardians

There is just one Earth, a world where we all live,
A beautiful place that has so much to give.
A spinning rock of life going round the sun,
And across its lands, wild animals run.
Within its oceans, the fish go swimming by,
Above its oceans, the albatrosses fly.

Among the creatures on this beautiful place,
There is one that calls itself the human race.
Unique upon this earth, free to move around,
In every part of the Earth, we are found.
Every sea we have crossed to lands anew,
Every continent we have travelled through.

We can touch every creature, learn their way,
Understand their lives and watch their young play.
We can change the landscape, change all that we see,
Only humankind has this ability.
We are the Earth’s guardians, to love and care,
To look after this world that all creatures share.

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.

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.

Strangers in a common world (poem)

Different and yet so much in common

Strangers in a common world

I can never be you and you can never be me,
The images that pass through your eyes, I cannot see.
The thoughts that pass through your mind, the ideas that you seek,
Will follow their own light and be forever unique.

I can only be me and you can only be you,
Each one of us is born with different points of view.
We each have our own methods of getting through a day,
We each have our own life to live, our own words to say.

But this world that we live on, is one that we all share,
Common to us all, a place for which we should all care.
We share the same sights when we are standing together,
Seeing the same landscape, and sharing the same weather.

Different views we may have, but together we can talk,
Different lives we may have, but together we can walk.
We can bring who we are, everything we can give,
And with love, patience, and kindness, in peace we can live.

Oh no! Where do I go? (poem)


What to do when you are lost

Oh no! Where do I go?

Oh no! Where do I go?
Which of these footpaths should I take?
Go right? What’s now in sight?
Which of these choices should I make?

Just sit, rest for a bit,
Just take a moment to be still.
Sit back, life’s not so black,
Let the world walk pass as it will.

Look high, see a blue sky,
For beyond grey clouds it is blue.
Look low, see the plants grow,
Nature’s world is now in your view.

Sunlight, is now in sight,
It’s coming to where you now are.
Moonlight, fills up the night,
Just relax and look at your star.

New hope, you can now cope,
Within you there’s the path you need.
Look in, life can begin,
Within you there grows a new seed.

Stand up, drink from life’s cup,
You are all that you need to be.
Just go, your life to know,
Enjoy life, be kind and be free.

Turmoil and Tranquility (poem)


Turmoil and Tranquillity

Turmoil and tranquillity,
Adrift upon the sea of life.
Found within serenity,
Found within times of strife.

Tranquillity brings a peace,
A stillness upon life’s beach,
Where busyness will cease,
As tension floats out of reach.

Turmoil brings revolution,
Waves beating upon the shore.
A time of evolution,
With new oceans to explore

Harmony brings them together,
To sail both calm and angry seas.
Drifting slowly in calm weather,
Racing fast upon a summer’s breeze.

Whichever way life’s current flows,
Together they seek tomorrow.
Sailing through the highs and lows,
With harmony replacing sorrow.

Rainbows within tears (poem)


Within sadness there is light

Rainbows within tears

I thought I caught a rainbow,
Reflecting in your sad eyes.
Bringing to your eyes a glow,
Reflecting the light in the skies.

The rainbow is shedding tears,
Raindrops of colour and light.
Droplets of your pain and fears,
As the storm clouds fade from sight.

Beyond the rainbow is the sun,
To dry up the sadness within.
And once those teardrops are done,
Then its warmth will come on in.

Rainbows within tears are found,
As the sun touches your face.
Gently falling to the ground,
Teardrops seeking a new place.

Then once the teardrops have dried,
The rainbow may fade from view.
But it’s just moved on inside,
For the rainbow lives within you.

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.
