A Crack of Forgiveness (poem)

Open up your forgiveness

A Crack of Forgiveness

A crack of forgiveness,
Just a glimpse shining through.
A chance to readdress,
The pain living within you.

A chance to open up,
Unlock forgiveness’s door.
Retrieve forgiveness cup,
And hand it out once more.

A chance to bring healing,
To find where anger ends.
To once more start feeling,
That you can become friends.

A crack of forgiveness,
Can become a new sun.
Shining with hopefulness,
Against pain, you have won!

Please be at peace with me, my friend (poem)

Let’s become friends

Please be at peace with me, my friend

Please be at peace with me, my friend,
Even though strangers we may be.
Let our anger come to an end,
Let us set our harmony free.

Please come and sit with me, just here,
Let us spend time with each other.
Do not be afraid to come near,
Come, let us greet one another.

Please accept my hand of friendship,
Through the confusion of today.
From the cup of peace, let us sip,
Let our promises find a way.

Please talk to me about your ways,
Let me learn about how you live.
Let us talk of happier days,
With each other, learn to forgive.

Please now walk with me, by my side,
Let us find our way together.
Let understanding be our guide,
Let our peace remain forever.

A quiet spot of your own (poem)

A moment for yourself

A quiet spot of your own

A quiet spot far away from the crowd,
Just a quiet place where nothing’s too loud.
Somewhere your life can settle for a while,
Instead of a frown, recover a smile.
A place of calm where your tension eases,
Where your mind can drift to where it pleases.
Somewhere special, where your stress can depart,
A place where you time is ruled by your heart.

A quiet spot where you can take a rest,
To just sit back and see life at its best.
A chance for your inner spirit to renew,
Opening your eyes, enjoying the view.
Closing your eyes, reflecting within,
Letting the dreams of tomorrow begin.
And when from this spot, it’s time to depart,
Tuck a piece of it’s peace within your heart.

The promise of a New Year (poem)

A new year has arrived

The promise of a New Year

The promise of a New Year,
The promise of hope is near,
As the path into your future begins anew,
The promise of a fresh start,
The promise of a new part,
Where your role in life seeks out a different view.

A chance to let go the old,
A chance to clear out the cold,
To turn and seek a new life towards the light.
A chance to let sadness end,
A chance to become a friend,
To reach out to strangers who come into your sight.

Your life can turn a new page,
Step out of histories cage,
Open the door and see the dawn of a new day.
Place your feet on life’s new track,
Shake off the past from your back,
And let the promise of a new year guide your way.

It is Christmas Day (poem)

Christmas Day is here

It is Christmas Day

It is Christmas Day and Father Christmas has been,
Just by the bed a Christmas stocking can be seen.
Within it there are sweets, plus some toys they can play,
Such a wonderful beginning to Christmas Day.

The turkey’s in the oven, cooking nice and slow,
With lots more food prepared, it’s all ready to go.
Such a feast set before us, upon the table,
There is so much food to eat, will I be able?

In the Afternoon, more family come around,
Then, under the Christmas tree, more presents are found!
Keenly they are unwrapped, happiness is let out,
Joyfulness and laughter is floating all about.

Games are played round the table, Toys are on the floor,
A blue racing car comes whizzing through the hall door.
The teddy bears have been put to bed on the chairs
Except for one that is found sitting on the stairs.

Evening brings a calmness, time to just sit around,
After such a busy day, peacefulness is found.
The children are ready for their beds once again,
Christmas Day departs, but the memories remain.

The gift of giving at Christmas (poem)

There is so much you can give at Christmas

The gift of giving at Christmas

The gifts sit upon the table awaiting my attention,
With wrapping paper and red ribbon scattered everywhere.
Checking my Christmas lists, has everyone had a mention?
I am pretty certain there is no one missing off of there.
There are the ones for the family, with those I shall begin,
Then comes the one for the friends that I have met along the way.
A couple of hours later and I’m beginning to win.
Not long now until they will all be ready for Christmas Day.

At last! They are wrapped and stacked, but it isn’t over yet,
(I shall just have a short break and grab something nice to eat)
For I have a special heap that’s meant for those that we forget,
For charities to share with lonely strangers I’ll never meet
These presents are quite simple, nothing grand or overstated,
But it will give Christmas to a person who’s alone somewhere.
Christmas brings the gift of giving, a day to be celebrated,
Christmas brings the gift of letting the world know that you care.

Let there be kindness at Christmas (poem)

Christmas is for caring

Let there be kindness at Christmas

Let there be kindness at Christmas, for one and all,
Let others know the dove of peace has come to call.
Let others see that with you, Christmas can be kind,
Leave spoonfuls of joyfulness for others to find.
Distribute your smiles, let them float to those around,
So when the smiles reaches them, happiness is found.

Let there be understanding at Christmas this year,
Let others know that your forgiveness is now here.
Let others see that with you, hate does not belong,
That with you, they will once more find hope and feel strong.
Open up your heart, and let them know that you care,
And that when tomorrow comes, you will still be there.

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.

Don’t let the anger win (poem)


Let peace and love rule

Don’t let the anger win

Don’t let the anger win, don’t let the poison start.
Don’t let the hate begin, and tear us all apart.
One world we all do share, one life we call our own.
But others are out there, we do not live alone.
What good is hate to all? What good is angers bite?
When all we do is fall, as mankind starts to fight.

One way there is to walk, a hard march for the heart,
If we could learn to talk, and not get torn apart.
If love’s banner waves high, above a hateful word.
Then peace we all can cry, and let that word be heard.
We bring ourselves to fight, for peace and love, as one.
Those words we can unite, and in our name, be done.
