Queen Elizabeth II last journey (poem)

May you rest in peace

Queen Elizabeth II last journey

The time has come for our final farewell to you, Our Queen,
Our Majesty, Our Royal Highness, to all that you have been.
For seventy years you sat with dignity upon the throne,
Your dedication to your role, your kindness so well known.
You touched the world with your love, travelling so far and wide,
Reaching out to many, with your Prince Philip at your side.
Upon this final journey, in grandeur you now depart,
Farewell Your Majesty, you will still live within my heart

Queen Elizabeth II Remembered (poem)

May you rest in peace

Queen Elizabeth II Remembered

When I was born you were well established upon the royal throne.
Throughout my life you have been the only monarch that I have known.
You were the one true stability in a world ever changing.
No matter what the confusion, you were always understanding.
You knew what duty meant and knew that, for many, you led the way.
So much of the world turned and followed you in what you did each day.
You never disappointed, you could bring peace just by being there.
You were never overstated, but of you all the world was aware.
You could walk into discord but only harmony would walk out.
You would get close to so many when you went on a ‘walk about’.
You were always such a brightness, whether it was sunshine or rain.
May you rest in peace, and reunited with Philip once again.

You almost walked past me (poem)

Love can appear any place, any time

You almost walked past me

You almost walked past me on that day.
I almost wandered another way.
Yet something made me stop, take a pause,
A random choice with no special cause.
Maybe it was the view, a nice sky,
But in truth, I will never know why.

I was standing there when you came near.
Something made you choose to stop just here.
Two strangers admiring the view,
Two strangers seeking for the new.
Others were there, it was a nice spot,
But just how many, I’ve now forgot.

You made a comment, spoken out loud,
About the funny shape of a cloud.
Talking to yourself, that’s what you done,
But from those words, our future begun.
I laughed a little, you looked at me,
And with your laugh, you set my heart free.

Now many years later, here we stand,
Content with life, standing hand in hand.
Both so glad of that moment of fate,
You found my heart and opened its gate.
I found your heart, you opened it wide,
Together in life, our hearts reside.

Remembering Dad (poem)

Reflections for Father’s Day

Remembering Dad

You were there for me from the day my life begun,
On your back, you would sometimes carry me for fun.
You hand holding mine, there to help me as I grew,
Standing there by my side, your love I always knew.

There were those times when I would follow you around,
Often in the garage, you and I would be found.
Helping you in those ways that only a child could,
Handing you that ‘large spanner’, or holding some wood.

Throughout my childhood you helped me to understand,
No matter how great or small, you would lend a hand.
Encouraging me to try that little bit more,
Helping me through all those times when I was unsure.

Even when I grew up and my life moved along,
That bond between us always remained very strong.
Our conversations could go on for quite a while,
Always our goodbyes came with a kiss, and a smile.

It may have been a few years since you passed away,
But within my memories, it’s just yesterday.
Those times of shared adventures, I am still aware,
For deep within my heart, you are still living there.

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.

Yesterday I lost you (poem for the bereaved)


For all those who lost the love of their life yesterday
(Especially for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II)
160608 Rose B2 1 - Copy
Yesterday I lost you

Yesterday I lost you, my love, my sweetheart and truest friend,
Yesterday upon this earth, our time together came to an end.
You were always there by my side, together we were strong,
For so many years you shared your love, together we belong.
We laughed, we played, and through troubles times we walked together,
Although you may have passed away, your love will stay forever.

Let the good memories remain (poem) *


The good memories are there inside

Let the good memories remain

Let the good memories remain,
Remember the joy and laughter.
Remember the good times again,
And the smiles will follow after.

Perhaps sadness lingers within,
Maybe just for now you feel blue.
But a brighter day will begin,
Chasing those shadows out of you.

The sun is there every day,
The stars are there every night.
Now and then clouds get in the way,
But they soon move on, out of sight.

Blues skies bring clearness once more,
Sunshine warms the threads of our heart.
Its light unlocking sadness door,
To allow the heartache to depart.

Let the good memories shine through,
Let the love in your soul burn bright.
Let the happiness out of you,
And walk once more in the sunlight.

Sweet memories of love (poem)


Love for those we have lost

Sweet memories of love

Through the sweet memories of love, you are still here,
Within the depths of my heart, your love is still near.
Though your hand I may no longer be able to hold,
I feel your arm around me whenever I feel cold.

You are there, wherever in this world I may be,
Your joy and happiness still live deep within me.
That, although I may now walk through life on my own,
Through the sweet memories of love, I am not alone.

Christmas, A time of forgiveness (poem)


Let Christmas bring healing and peace


Christmas, a time of forgiveness

A time of forgiveness, a time of goodwill,
A time to forget anger and let the wounds heal.
A time for the hope that came with His birth,
A time to reflect upon His work on this earth.

A time to remember those who cannot be here,
To raise up a glass and remember them with cheer.
Of the joy that you shared with them a long time ago,
For although they are gone, their love you still know.

A time of celebration with others around,
To make new friends of any strangers you have found,
To give to those who are less fortunate than you,
To help them find happiness, their hope to renew.

This time of the year should always bring peace,
As we look for the star that rose in the East.
As we remember the goodness that came from above,
And pray that to others, we can share some of His love.
