Loss turns to Hope !

Silence after your death was felt so vividly
creating an aching void, deep within my heart
for you were such a massive part of my life
how can I continue now my soul is ripped apart

the memory of your life is etched across my soul
an intricate pattern interlaced with my own
you were a rock that supported us all
how am I going to cope now I`m all alone ?

I find myself thinking of you more each day
knowing that you're watching me from above
each time I feel down, you send me a white feather
to show just how much you hold me in your love 💕

Memories in Ink

as blood pulsing through my veins
the ink in my pen flows freely
racing across the pages of my life
recording inner passions
creating loving memories

Friends for life
Rebels together
Independent yet joined
Empowering each other
Never far from the heart
Dependable in a crisis
Serious at times
Hilarious at others
Incredible mind links
Precious treasure to know !

Beauty in Death

In death such beauty
suspended in water
floating through coldness
this murdered daughter

This stolen angel
pale of complexion
unseeing blue eyes
no more affection

Beauty seen in death
long swirling blond hair
lips never to be kissed
there`s no one to care

Smoky wisps of mist
under the moon light
she`s silently moves
on through the still night

Life force was taken
yet beauty remains
this angel in death
enters new domains

big eyes focused
pleading for attention
beautifully alert
sheer perfection

whiskers all static
sensing what`s all around
feeling the atmosphere
yet never making a sound

an elegant creature
with soft silky fur
that`s so gentle to touch
as I listen to you purr

face so attentive
with a purr and a meow
with a loving look
that says, I love you

A lesson in Love

I`m told
you only get one chance
at true love
and for me
that was my husband
four great kids later
and he was taken from me
so cruelly by cancer
I grieved
and tried to carry on with life
and though this was hard
I managed
devoting myself to my kids

then one day
I was lucky enough
a second chance
as I meet
another wonderful man
cheeky and fun loving
so full of life
so unlike my husband.

everybody told me
it wouldn't work
he was not for me
what would my husband think!!
now I know
they were being kind
trying to help
we were in love

the trouble was..
that he lived across the pond
miles and miles away
in the states
but we managed
through technology 
to chat and spend time together
and in time we meet
it was awesome

we decided to marry
but sadly
this had its problems
where and how?
costs and witnesses
we tried twice
but events were against us

then I started listening
to my friends
and family too
maybe this wasn't to be
I was making a mistake
so I started to doubt
he went back to the states
we carried on chatting
tried to continue
but I was distancing myself
months turned into years
his health went down
I started to get on with my life
a romance doomed
through all that
he never gave up
never stopped loving me!

now I have lost him
he died of cancer
life can be so cruel
I listened to others
and not my own head
I didn`t follow my heart
this has proved to be a
bitter lesson in love

Disappearing Elephants

gentle strides along well worn trails
these majestic creatures travel
silently linked, trunks to tails
a sight we should all marvel

but sadly in this day and age
it`s happening more infrequently
and this should cause outrage
yet they`re continually killed secretly

with such loving soulful eyes
deep rumbling to show affection

kind and proud and oh so wise
these animals need our protection
