The light beyond the storm of sadness (poem)

Light will return to our lives

The light beyond the storm of sadness

Beyond the horizon a light will be found,
For this darkness cannot endure forever.
There may be no light just here, looking around,
But it will come, like a change in the weather.

There is no rainstorm that can last a lifetime,
Beyond the storms far horizon, light prevails.
Eventually the bells for clear skies, will chime,
All we need to do is to endure all the gales.

I can see no light there yet for tomorrow,
But I can remember it lived in my past.
So there will be an end to all this dark sorrow,
For it tells me that this darkness cannot last.

So how do we survive this darkness just here?
How can we believe there will be light once more?
Can we make this storm of sadness disappear?
Can we make the world the way it was before?

There is no going back, so let’s just turn around,
Let’s look forward, and with this darkness endure.
Within ourselves, an inner light can be found,
With each other, we can look for a cure.

This darkness will end, but what will we all find?
If we do nothing then the storm would have won.
But if we can reach out and work with one mind,
Then a better world will be seen with the sun.

Time changes us all (poem)


Time and tide wait for none 
B house far 1
Time changes us all

I am somebody else! I have come to realise this day,
And that with each passing year, I have changed in some way.
That the dynamic person I once was, in years gone past,
Can live at a pace that is, well, not nearly so fast.
That this new person within me, that I have just found,
Can find peace in standing still, or just strolling around.

Like the tides gradually shifting the sands in the bay,
So time gradually shifted me to who I am today.
But the person I once was can still be found
deep within,
And without that old me, I would not know where to begin.
For who I am now, has come from those old seeds that were sown,
And it is from those past journeys, that this person has grown.

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.

Am I a stranger or a friend? (poem)


Let friendship bring understanding into a world of differences.  

Am I a stranger or a friend?

I may have walked a different path, taken a different way,
I may have led a different life and seen a different day.
I may not have learnt with you, to see what you can be,
But does that make a difference between you and me?
So now I will ask of you, as this day comes to an end,
Just how do I stand before you, as a stranger or a friend?

Perhaps if I had known your way, had seen it long ago,
And decided that it was not for me, choosing not to know.
Then you could be right to say, that I am not like you,
To turn your face away from me and keep me out of view.
But I did not learn on your road, nor walk round a single bend,
So how do I stand before you, as a stranger or a friend?

I understand just what you say, I would like to know you more,
Perhaps if you would sit with me, there’s a seat just by the door.
Let me know of your life and I will tell you about my own,
Then after a day or two, our understanding will have grown.
Learn how to heal our wounds, to know where to stitch and mend,
And then, over time, change from a stranger into a friend.

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.

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.

The path that is right for me (poem)


Be your true self.

The path that is right for me

I have chosen the path that’s the right one for me,
For it is the one that is closest to my heart.
It is the one upon which my spirit feels free,
And in truth, I have traveled along from the start.

There have been times when I may have drifted away,
There have been times when other paths I have found.
But not for long, upon them do I ever stray,
Before my feet decide they should turn me around.

My mind may get lost every now and then,
My thoughts stray from this person just here.
But somehow, my soul seems to know just when,
It is time for my heart to take over and steer.

Taking me away from all this falseness within,
Away from where the pain and heartaches go.
Back to my own path, so I can once again begin,
To be the one person that I truly know.

Love and Kindness hand in hand (poem)


Helping the world around us.

Love and Kindness hand in hand

Upon the road of life, love and kindness go strolling hand in hand,
And in our times of strife, they will work together to save our land.
Stretching out to us all, wrapping humanity within their embrace,
Peace and calm come to call, when love and kindness enter the place.

Kindness seeks out our fears, beside it love carries a guiding light,
They will help dry our tears, helping us to get through our darkest night.
Kindness will endure the pain, for love gives it the strength to survive,
Together they will remain, keeping humanities hopes alive.

Faithful to us they stay, for in sad times they are our truest friends,
Helping us find our way, until the battle with hate and anger ends.
We can assist them too, by letting them guide us through this sorrow,
Helping others get through, let our love and kindness build tomorrow.

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.

Let peace find a way (poem)


Being peace to those around you

Let peace find a way

Let peace find a way,
Throughout this new day,
Let love find a place in your life.
Let forgiveness win,
Share peace from within,
And let harmony replace strife.

Show others you care,
That you will be there,
When this day brings troubles to them.
Where discord if found,
Then turn it around,
And let peace shine bright, like a gem.
