A day of my own to enjoy (poem)

The freedom of a day

A day of my own to enjoy

Let the breeze blow through my hair,
Upon this day, clear and bright.
My time is my own to bare,
I am off to find some new sight.

Maybe a walk to the park,
With its woodlands by the lake.
There’s hours yet before its dark,
And plenty of paths to take.

There’s a one-day antiques fair,
With stalls in the playing field.
I could wander around there,
And see what goodies they yield.

I could treat myself to tea,
There’s that canal pub to try.
Let them bring the food to me,
As I watch the boats go by.

Perhaps I’ll head to the beach,
And walk barefoot in the sand.
That old lighthouse, I could reach,
If I walk round the headland.

I could go to the cliff top,
In time to watch the sunset.
At the food van I could stop,
Where a coffee I can get.

In the end it matters not,
Which out of all these, I choose.
For this free day I have got,
So in the end, I cannot lose.

Oh no! Where do I go? (poem)

Finding a way

Oh no! Where do I go?

Oh no! Where do I go?
Look right, nothing’s in sight,
Look left, it’s all bereft.
Look high, it’s all just sky,
Look low, nothing below.
It’s clear, there’s nothing here!

What now! Get out somehow?
Where to? nothing’s in view,
Which way? Best not to stray,
Let’s muse, how do I choose?
Just start, follow your heart,
Just be, time to step free.

Let’s go! So much to know,
Learn more, go out the door.
Look far, search for a star,
Walk fast, release the past.
Just run, go have some fun,
Stand still, life can be real.

Look round, A path is found!
New way, a better day.
New light, new hope’s in sight,
Move on, start to feel strong.
Just smile, life is worthwhile,
Be you, your life renew.

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.

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.

It has been a better day (poem)


You life can change in a day!

It has been a better day

It has been a better day,
I have seen a clearer way,
At last! A new path for my future I have found.
My world feels so much brighter,
My back feels so much lighter,
Yesterday’s stress has fallen softly to the ground.

I have a chance to live again,
For my happiness to remain,
As my sadness disappears, fading from my sight.
My inner spirit is now free,
It feels alive once more in me,
What was going wrong is beginning to go right.

I can feel that I am stronger,
I can keep going for longer,
Whatever tomorrow brings, I will find a way.
My life will begin to grow,
A better world I will know,
And all this happiness found within me, will stay.

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.
