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.

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.

First promises of love (poem)


For Valentines Day

First promises of love

Let our love dance between us, listening to our heartbeat,
As we begin those first shy steps, awkward on clumsy feet.
Let our love lift us up, so we can touch the stars in the sky,
As we encounter love promises, and our hearts learn to fly.
Let our love bring us back, safely and gently, to the ground,
As we seek a way, to where a loving future can be found.
Let our love hold us together, to last forever more,
For it is you my sweet love, that my heart and I, adore.

I will meet you again in the spring (love poem)


For all those separated from their loved ones

I will meet you again in the spring

I will meet you again in the spring,
Just for now, we must stay apart.
But when the time comes, then I will bring,
All of the love that I have in my heart.
Let these long days of winter drift by,
Let’s remember just how close we are.
We still share the same moon in the sky,
And can still wish upon the same star.

I will meet you again in the spring,
I shall think of you each winter’s day.
Letting your love pluck at my heartstring,
With the sweet melodies it can play.
Even now the spring plants are growing,
In defiance of winter’s cold stance,
The first of their green tips are showing,
Just wander outside and take a glance.

I will meet you again in the spring,
When the blossom appears on the trees
When the birds in the garden all sing,
To the accompaniment of the bees.
But for now, in my heart I will hold you,
Until we can be together once more.
Let our good memories guide us through,
Until spring, when I’ll walk through your door.
