My daughter’s dream

My little girl

4 years is she

Wants to be an astronaught

Would make her happy

.

I thought to say no

But what do I know?

One day it’s possible

How can we know?

.

Maybe for now

It is just a dream

I will not take it away

Pull at its seams

.

Such beautiful innocence

I wait for the next

My daughter’s dreams

They are the best

.

Searching for you is a collection of poetry about love, heartbreak and happiness. A raw journey looking at our search in life to find ourselves and that special someone.

Little birdie

I look out the window

Sweet little bird

Your little cheep

Is all I heard

I see you in your nest

Everyday

I give you food

And watch you play

You search for twigs

And whatever you find

You bring it back

Leave nothing behind

You leave to dig

To pick up worms

To give to your babies

So they might learn

They are getting stronger

We hear them so

Fighting together

Siblings to and fro

One falls out

Of the nest

To the floor

And breaks its neck

The neighbourhood cat

Comes along

That poor birdie

That wasn’t long

The baby is big

Testing his wings

Trying to fly

A joy to hear sing

He flies up high

And toys in the sky

I always wondered

Why he does that, why?

He is a joy to watch

As he comes back down

His mother watching

Making no sound

Then he flies in a window

And makes a loud thud

That poor bird stunned

Will he have enough?

That cat is back

The mum defends her son

She attacks the cat

The battle won

The cat backs off

As the mum chirps at her boy

The cat pounces

And plays with her like a toy

The son escapes

Out of harm’s reach

He can only watch

Of course he can’t speak

He will have to learn

How to survive

Life isn’t easy

At least he is alive

Beautiful moon

Why would you watch me?

I know you better than most

Although everyone gazes at you

I will not be thrown.

We have had many a moment

Just you and I

Your beauty overwealms me

Brings tears to my eyes.

You can be blinding

As you light the path ahead

There is nowhere else to be

Nowhere else instead.

As the stars vie for your attention

Flashing bright and true

You stare right through them

As constantly you do.

Will you love me forever?

If I never look away?

Tell me you’ll never leave me

And you’ll always stay.

Our little ones

Isn’t it funny

How we watch over

Our sweet little ones

To be sure they are ok

Wrapped around their fingers

We’d do anything

As they suffer

We can only wait

And watch

When there are spiders

And flies

Keeping them from sleep

We are there

Is it because they need us

Or we need to be needed

If I could change the colour of the sky

If I could change the colour of the sky

What would I wish it to be

I don’t wish for blue anymore

It just doesn’t appeal to me

How bout yellow, I like it so

So bright and cheerful to see

Like a flower so sweet to smell

That’s the colour for me

Erica and the boy

An angel was sweet

As sweet as can be

She loved a boy

Who hid in a tree

He would hide each day

That cute little one

Hiding from dad

As there was not mum

He would cry and speak

Aloud to himself

He would arrange his comics

Up high on his shelf

A to z

With so much care

Such precision

He liked to stare

Did this mean he was different

Maybe a bit

Did it matter?

Of course not you twit

He was so special

As the angel would see

She would guide him

Keep him happy

She liked his words

Oh so kind

Reflected thoughts

Taking his time

Touching his thoughts

The angel would sing

Feeding him joy

From deep within

What is your name?

My angel, my love

Erica, I am yours

Never give up

I will not submit. Never!

I never thought that I would leave

I have always been confortable

The greater unknown never appealed

I preferred not to know

Not to venture

To search for a new life

To raise a child

Not knowing the language

Fear never really imposed

Until the final moment

As if a knife to my throat

With failure marked on the blade

Ready to pierce my skin

At any moment

With the burning fires behind my back

That would melt my skin

If I ever looked back

I would walk blindly

Into the unknown

Fear i would brush aside

I will not be burned

As I would not look back

I may bleed

As I lose my way

But I will not submit

Never

Childhood · happy · New work

Truth or dare, do you remember that?

Truth or dare, do you remember that?

Pumpkins alight and scary bats

Spiders crawling, creeping at night

Trick or treat, what a delight

Egging houses, toilet paper thrown

Grumpy people, cleaning their homes

Sweets oh so tasty, making us sick

Wanting for more, what made us tick

Dared by our friends to knock at the door

The old scary man, with all his lore

Opens up and shouts “trick or treat!”

But stops us, before we can speak

“I’ve got a dare, for all you tykes”

Come closer…….. BOO! WHAT A FRIGHT!

To be inspired

It takes a lot to be inspired, to leave your cosy shell

Some people find it easy, for others it is hell

Not knowing what to do, to let the words flow

How to get them out there, which way to go?

Put them down on paper, or trace them in your head

Sing em in the shower, or when you go to bed

Now isn’t that better? Bit of fun for the brain

It shouldn’t be a chore, let’s do this again?
