STARRY, STARRY NIGHT:

STARRY, STARRY NIGHT:
As I looked out of my window,
At the dark ebony starry sky.
One word blew on the breeze,
That one word was "Why?"

Why do things happen in our lives,
Whether good or bad.
Things that make us happy,
Equally things that make us sad.

I appreciate as the adage do say,
"Life is what you make it" 
But fate I do believe in,
Should one be a failure or a hit.

Positivity is the answer I'm sure.
As I continued my nightime look enchanced,
Then the moon came into view.
I gave it a second glance.

You see before I drew the curtains
As into my bed I did sink.
I'm positive the "Man in the moon"
Gave me a comforting wink.

ALL I EVER WANTED:

Dedicated to my three kids
ROB, JOHN, DONNA:
 
ALL I EVER WANTED:
Ever since I could remember,
All I wanted was to be a good daughter and wife.
Well I think I established that,
Now that mother and husband is no longer in my life.
 
It was at this time of year that husband went away.
A sad time I know that you will agree.
But eventually I made a new life for myself,
Being as happy as I could could possibly be.
 
When I became a mother,
To my children three.
I vowed silently as I held them,
My love unconditionly.
 
Throughout their lives I've maintained that love,
Whatever problems arose.
From the very top of their heads,
To the tip of their toes.
 
All I ever wanted,
Since their dad is no longer be.
Is that they in their hearts,
Would be proud of me.
 
Proud of my achievements
That have occurred in my life.
Having four books published,
Not all this tears and strife.
 
Is it so very wrong
To want my children's pride?
Their attitude these past years,
My life has been a bumpy ride.
 
I WILL pick up the pieces,
That I'm very sure.
But after saying that.
I need their love even more.

A NEW WEEK:

A NEW WEEK:
A new week we commence,
One that's  full of hope.
Hoping that in my situation,
I will be able to cope.
 
Cope with all that life throws at me,
Whether good or not so.
That if the sun decides to shine,
Out in the big world I will go.
 
May your lives be great,
May  good fortune come your way.
A new week indeed.
To laugh, love and play.
 
HAVE A GOOD WEEK:

THE FIRST STEP IS THE HARDEST:

THE FIRST STEP IS THE HARDEST:
Following my hiatus of blogging.
I'm taking the first step back.
Trying to pick up the pieces,
While much confidence I lack.
 
I know with positivity and tenacity,
I will get there no doubt.
But suffice to say these past few weeks,
I've felt really "Washed out".
 
With health and family issues,
The continual loneliness I feel.
Not a soul to converse with for days on end,
I honestly felt quite ill.
 
But after much thought and deliberation,
Decided "All is not lost".
I've many a friend in the blogging community,
Mustn't lose them.....at no cost.
 
I hope you're all feeling well,
Have much happiness in your life.
Let the autumn sun shine down on you.
Away with tears and strife.

WELCOME SEPTEMBER:

WELCOME SEPTEMBER:
As we herald September,
It's goodbye summer hello fall.
With all sincerity ,
I wish you a happy month one and all.

We say goodbye to some of the birds,
Off to sunnier climates go they.
Flying in their multitudes,
As they go on their way.

I wish the pigeons would go,
As they persistently leave calling cards.
They nest up in the rafters ,
Cleaning after them is extremly hard.

As I write Bournemouth has it's
Annual air display.
The famous "Red Arrows"does a fly past,
Each and every day.

Children returning back to school,
I've just realised.
My youngest grandchild left school last term,
My, they've grown up before my very eyes.

Whatever your September brings,
Face it with a grin.
One can't worry about what may never happen,
So let the autumn sunshine in.


HAPPY SEPTEMBER:

THURSDAY IS MARKET DAY:

THURSDAY IS MARKET DAY:
Above is a picture of my local market,
Today is market day.
Hope to go there in a little while,
To reach there is not a long way.

With a sunny day forecasted,
Away are yesterday's clouds.
Yes! I am certainly looking forward,
To see the market and the holiday crowds.

May your Thursday go wonderfully well.
On this last day of August so fair.
It's  hard to visualise it's September tomorrow,
Yet another month of memories I declare.

Once again do have a good day,
Albeit working or staying at home.
That you can retire at the end of the day,
With gratitude of good memories ....and memories to come. 

HAPPY THURSDAY:

SMILE:

SMILE:
( I didn't think I had much to smile about
but came across an old poem of mine
then changed my mind)

Everyday I wish you peace,
That will last the whole year through.
Share a smile to e're comes your way
It's a priceless thing to do.

Someone who may be lonely,
It will brighten their solitary day.
Someone who may be down on their luck,
It will cheer them on their way.

A smile may be a facial expression,
To others it means so much more.
Do it wholeheartedly,
Not as though it's a chore.

A genuine smile is worth it's weight in gold,
More than money can buy.
Just smile through your day,
As you go passing by.
