Starry Night

Tucked up in a blanket of blue sky
under the lights of a thousand stars
each soul may sleep soundly tonight
dreaming of a paradise that`s ours

twinkling stars lighting up the sky
reassuring us of a peaceful night
quietening the heart and soul
waking refreshed in the morning light

Alone ....

As tears run down my face
I realise that I`m alone
no one here to support me
such pain I`ve never known

you`re not here to hug me
comfort my aching heart
show me love and kindness
for my world`s been torn apart

Timothy, an army explosive sniffer dog, wears the helmet of a soldier who placed it on his head at the site of a car loaded with explosives that was detonated by an army anti-bomb squad in Pradera, southwestern Colombia in 2012.

Canine Soldier.!

War Zones around the world

where man and dog work together
braving bombs and poisonous gas
plus snipers in all types of weather

they`re emotionally connected

and support their military squad
fighting against great tyranny
and enemies serving their god !

 comrades in arms against the enemy

braving shrapnel from a bomb blast
each dog remains with their handler
doing more then they have been asked

the trust that is found between them

a bond that will not be betrayed
companionship that`s the strongest
 at rest or defending the blockade

for man and dog united in a cause
standing proud together in armour
as they risk their lives to protect
serving our great country with honour

Night creeps in through a key hole
and takes me by surprise
street lights luminate outside
while my bed now beckons from the dark
as I slowly climb the stairs to slumber....!

Good Night

Its time settle down to sleep
after such a fun packed Sunday
playing games out in the garden
can't believe it'll soon be Monday

just found a really comfy spot
so all stretched out with eyes closed tight
time to dream of new adventures
therefore I'll wish you all Good Night !

Tiger, Tiger !

each stripe is different
every coat, unique
awesome camouflage 
at nature`s boutique

moving through jungle
in silent stealth mode
seeking his next meal
as his bright eyes glowed

hardly visible
to the naked eye
this tiger`s walking
confident and sly

our majestic kings
endangered creatures
it`s for us to help
one of earth's treasures

oh tiger tiger
this is now your hour
our symbol of freedom
such beauty and power

There is a need to save these wonderful creatures

Mum's Taxi

It`s really quite amazing
How my life can twist and turn
One moment I`m sat at home
Then I`m off to drive and learn

Collecting friends from the station
Drive to Lacock in the sun
Or a shopping trip with my friends
Nor forgetting the school run

So remember what the sign says
The one in my car window
"Mum`s Taxi", so I`m the best
I`m here through rain, sun or snow!

Mum`s Taxi is a great occupation and I love it!
