My poetry book, Nature’s Gold, is now available on Amazon for £5.00. Below are two poems from the book, to give you an idea of the variety. The first one is lighthearted and the second is remembering someone no longer with us. I hope you enjoy.
So Give Them a Hug
There’s a lot to be said for being a Gran,
all the joys and cuddles and such.
Watching them grow, without all the work
and loving them all very much.
Look at the toys they are given these days.
So many games to be played.
If I tidied up after them I’d have to say
I’d be well and truly dismayed.
It will tear at your heart strings I know that for sure
if they’re crying a lot or in pain,
so give them a hug and a huge chocolate bar
and hand them back to their parents again.
This is Not Good-bye
Today you weep for me
for the void you feel I’ve left;
for strong arms to hold you safe;
for simultaneous laughter
and the silence that now screams.
In the days yet to come
you’ll discover me again
in memories of familiar places;
in times of happiness and hurt;
in things we would enjoy.
And when our song sings its tune
I’ll be in your mind once more.
Our love will flow between us.
Remembered words will comfort you
and life will begin again.
