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.

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.

Beyond the darkness, a new world comes (poem)


Light will always return to our lives

Beyond the darkness, a new world comes

Beyond the far horizon, the sun will return again,
Though darkness be with us now, its shadows will not remain.
These dark times will depart at the coming of the sun,
For always light follows darkness, somewhere the dawn’s begun.

The spinning of the Earth brings to us both darkness and light,
As soon as the darkness begins, tomorrow is in sight.
It may be a while yet before its light and warm once more,
But it is coming, for it has never failed to come before.

Upon the hint of dawns first light, we can begin to see,
The world tomorrow is bringing to us, to you and to me.
It will not be yesterday, for that was a darkness ago,
And what is coming after the dawn, we have yet to know.

The dark night may have been a struggle, so hard to get through,
That the world coming with this dawn, is so different and new.
Perhaps the darkness changed many things, that we are now afraid,
But in this new dawn, love can be found, and a future remade.

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.

Waking up in a new day (poem)


A new day brings a freshness into our life.

Waking up in a new day

Waking up each day allows a new life to begin,
Bringing a fresh chance to change this world we live in.
Whatever the dawn, we begin with a new view,
Whatever this day brings, we are beginning anew.
Whatever happened yesterday
 is now in the past,
This day brings new hope for a future that can last.

Open your eyes and wake up within this new light,
Let yesterday’s shadows fade back into the night.
Let today bring the wonders of a world we can share,
Let tomorrow’s dreams show us the best way to get there.
Whatever this day’s ending, let one thought remain,
We have the beauty of this world to wake to again.

A Kiss from my Heart (poem)


For those who cannot be together.

A Kiss from my Heart

A special kiss sent to you from my heart,
For sadly, I cannot be where you are.
Although we may be many miles apart,
Deep within me, 
it does not feel so far.

I remember all those moments with you,
Everyone one of them, precious and clear.
If I shut my eyes you come into view,
And I can feel that you with me, just here.

One day I shall be beside you again,
And once more, all of our love we can share.
For now in my heart will our love remain,
Kept safe, until the day I can be there.

Why Me? (poem)


We can find a way towards a new life.

Why Me?

Why me? Upon this tired day,
Are the only words I want to say?
It feels today that all has gone wrong,
And in my life, I do not belong.

Upon this seat I now sit and stare,
And think of the life that once was there,
When blue skies ruled and the birds did fly,
And the sun rose gloriously up high.

Now it seems that everything’s gone grey,
My life has gone a different way.
That all my plans have fallen through,
Where, my world once bright, is now so blue.

But have I really got this view right?
Are my dreams truly out of sight?
This may not be the future I planned,
But this is my life, where I now stand!

I do not have to sit here and cry,
But instead, look up at that dark sky,
And seek for the stars that live up there,
And let them guide me to, who knows where?

Perhaps I may find a better path,
That will lead me to where I can laugh.
That those first plans were not right for me,
So let’s start walking and go and see.

An empty room in life (poem)


The potential of an empty space.

An empty room in life

The empty room is waiting, all tidy and swept clean,
There is not even a cobweb anywhere to be seen.
A fine open space, sparkling and ready to be used,
Where any interesting event will not be refused.

Perhaps used by a book club, with plenty in there to read,
Or new clothes put on display, in wool, cotton and tweed.
A gardening club arrives with their flowers in full bloom,
Or an exercise group starts running rings around the room.

Perhaps a children’s party is planned in there today,
With plenty of toys and games so everyone can play.
A floor mat is put down where babies can happily crawl,
While toddlers each get to sit on a brightly coloured stool.

There are so many things you can do with an empty space,
So many things you can seek out and put into that place.
An empty life can be approached in just the same way,
There will always be something you can do with it today.

Hugs, hearts and rainbows (short poems)


A collection of short poems.

Accepting a hug

Accept a hug in joyfulness,
Let it wrap you in its loving embrace.
Let it pass on its happiness,
And set a smile upon your face.

Beginning with the heart

When something new,
Comes into your view,
It can bring uncertainty on where to start.
Just look within,
On where to begin,
For the best guide is your own loving heart.

Life’s inner rainbow

Life’s inner rainbow comes in many shades and hues,
Within every part of us these colours do dwell.
So whenever you feel you are just living in the blues,
Glance around, for the other colours are there as well.

New Years hopes and resolutions (poem)


Let the New Year bring positive changes.

New Years hopes and resolutions

Let this new year be the beginning of a new life,
Where hope can be found upon the dawn of each new day.
Where inner courage can be found to face any strife,
And that through the toils and troubles, I will find a way.

Let kindness and compassion find a path through me,
Let forgiveness bring peace to my world once more.
Let understanding and clear sight allow me to see,
Those who struggle, so I can bring them safely to shore.

And as this new year begins to mature and grow old,
Let my actions bring hope to this world all around.
So that by the years end, there are stories to be told,
Of my acts of love and kindness, that others have found.
