Always In My Heart

Posted: August 15, 2013 in POETRY 1992 - 2012

(The very last poem (in memory of my Nan) that I wrote in 1999 before I started writing again in 2013)

There was no other as great as you,
Kind, sincere honest and true.
I wish you would come back and stay,
As I miss you now you’ve gone away.

I understand your agony and pain,
As I watched your tears fall like the rain.
I know you are watching from above,
Filling our hearts with your warmth and your love.

I know that you are often near,
As to me you were always very dear.
As you look down on me from heaven,
I know someday we’ll be together again.

You gave me strength, the will to live,
And taught me to share the love that I have to give.
In my heart and soul I recall the memories,
Like the autumn wind passing through the trees.

There was no other as special as you,
Kind, sincere, honest and true.
I wish you could come back and stay,
As I miss you now you’ve gone away.

Sometimes it’s hard for me to show my sadness and pain,
As I count down the hours until we can be together again.

An Ode To Us And Love

Posted: August 15, 2013 in POETRY 1992 - 2012

Sometimes when we touch,
I know that it means so much.
And when I lie close to you,
My feelings I know are true.

I’ve known from the very start,
There’s a place for you in my heart.
I want to be close to you,
The one that you turn to.

Believe me when I say,
I love you in every possible way.
No matter how near or how far,
I’ll be your guiding star.

Love can be true,
Love can be strong.
It can last a lifetime,
Love is lifelong.

If you love someone for sure,
Your feelings will be truly pure.
Love and happiness is everywhere,
With a lover it’s a thing you should share.

Childhood

Posted: August 15, 2013 in POETRY 1992 - 2012

I’ll always remember my childhood,
The good things, the bad and the great,
Although there were happy times,
There are also ones I hate.

I remember the games,
I remember the fun.
Running and playing,
In the warm summer sun.

I remember the good times,
I remember the bad.
I look back at the happy days,
Then I think of the sad.

I remember as the days went by,
Looking up at the clear blue sky.
I remember when I was just a child,
Running around being cheerful and wild.

I’ll always remember my childhood,
The good things, the bad and the great .
Although there were happy times,
There are also ones I hate.

Fashion Victim

Posted: August 15, 2013 in POETRY 1992 - 2012

Fashion comes and fashion goes,
The different colours and styles of clothes.
Fashion will come fashion will go,
Sixties, seventies and eighties retro.

T-shirts, trainers and jeans,
Blues, reds, blacks and greens.
I’m not really into fashion,
As soon as it starts its another trend gone.

Fashion changes from year to year,
From belly button rings, to loads in your ear.
Mirror watches, and other weird jewellery,
Bright colours for all to see.

Fashion comes and fashion goes,
The different styles and colours of clothes.
I mean come on fashion? What’s the deal?
I just dress to reflect the way that I feel.

Feelings

Posted: August 15, 2013 in POETRY 1992 - 2012

My love is like the earth,
Everlasting and pure.
My feelings are as deep as a canyon,
Only deeper.

I am human and therefore,
I cannot express my feelings by speech,
Only by my actions.
Which even sometimes I cannot control.

Sometimes I am weak,
Sometimes I am strong.
Sometimes I feel like I don’t belong,
Belong on this earth.

But on a distant planet,
Where love is eternal.
Yes, I feel at ease here.
This is where I want to belong.

If only there was such a planet,
I would be there right now.
Looking down on the earth,
And say I used to live there,

But there isn’t enough love for the whole population.
This planet I am on is the world of  love,
And love will never die here!

Friendship

Posted: August 15, 2013 in POETRY 1992 - 2012

Friendship is a lasting thing,
Think of all the happiness it can bring.
Friendship is always and forever,
Two friends together.

No matter if a problem is big or small,
A friend will help you through it all.
No matter if in love or lust,
A friend is someone whom you can trust.

A friend is dear, a friend is true,
No matter about the things that you do.
When everyone appears to have gone,
A friend can be there to be relied on.

Friends may have a lot to give,
And will give you the will to live.
As everyone in the world can see,
Having friends can make you happy.

Friendship is a lasting thing,
Think of all the happiness it  can bring.
Friendship is always and forever,
Friends will always be together.
