Please take note

I must be this bad person
as least that`s what I'm told
for I cant say anything right
and that I'm too bold

you see, I care too much
and can not let things go
for my kin are precious
as I love them so

but I'm the black sheep now
my temper is too strong
all I seem to do is cry
this pain is too long

It seems I annoy people
don`t mean to cause upset
I just want a quiet life
I am not a big threat

please be patient with me
I only want the best
so take some time to love me
our time on earth is blessed

Just a little emotional !

The battle field closer to home

I hate all these deceits and lies
that fill the air when you`re around
bitterness that seeps from your dark eyes
speaks volumes, yet you utter no sound

the room goes so cold at these times
as you sit there scheming away
for you have not a care in the world
cos you think you`ll get your own way

I watch the way that you toss your head
and the devilish smile on your lips
this tells me that trouble is a foot
lets just see what`s written in the scripts

knowing your twisted mind is evil
your talons are deeply embedded
as you`re spitting deadly venom
know the outcome is to be dreaded

what ever you throw at me now
all that I live I will defend
for your evil with not prevail
as I`ll fight to the bitter end

battles are not always fought on the bloody battle field, but can be closer to home.....

That moment...

I see the way you look at me
and wonder if its just desire 
that sultry look in your deep eyes
beginning to stir up my fire

as you stand there before me now
your hand resting on my shoulder
and as you breath touches my skin
oppressed feelings start to smoulder

love the smell of your aftershave
as you start to kiss me gently 
this feels so right for both of us
for our love grows so intently

I have one question to ask you
its not one I wouldn't usually say
so... " would you do me the honour
of marrying me this bright day?

I want us to stay together
as husband and wife, you know
for we were made for each other
and that is why I love you so

that moment, when you know its just right to ask.......!

Some exciting news

I have been invited to submit up to 10 poems for a new publication called

It was a hard task to chose just 10 poems, but all done and submitted!

Now the waiting begins.........fingers crossed.!
Sweet Red Poppy

Glistening after the storm
drenched with rain drops
like tears from the clouds
sparkling in the sun light

still standing tall and straight
sensually beautiful
with its rich contours
and luscious textures

this sweet red poppy
soft and smooth looking
perky after its watery bath
happily bobbing in the breeze

Love the aftermath of a rain storm....

He is coming
this mutant
the one who spreads fear
his dark blue armour
power and evil

fear his coming
to reek havoc
for five thousand years
he`s traveled the world
his sheer battle cry

this mighty beast
afraid of no man
will take on any creature
be prepared for fierce fighting
he will never lose

rejected at birth
so revenge is all he knows
super human abilities
gigantic proportions
the world to conquer

The leeches are here......

this leech is sucking me dry
feeding off my very soul
draining all the life force
killing me slowly
oh so slowly

sneaks into my domain
right behind my own back
steals what was once mine
never offers a thank you
no thank you

no more nutrients here
the cupboard is empty
my starving family
there`s no future now
no future now

leave me my dignity
oh please, leave me that much
or is there no hope
you're sucking me dry
sucking me dry

and then there was darkness...................

Gateway to the next world

the palpitating murmurs of the dying
are heard echoing throughout this dense wood
along with deep moans of those between worlds
haunting me....memories.. no one understood

death is but a gate way into the next world
a path that has to be taken by all
whether we travel along it willingly
our dying whispers must answer the call.

a cold sensation runs along my spine
leaving me shuddering with sheer emotion
feeling someone has walked across me grave
though dry here, I'm drowning in an ocean

these woods hold horrific memories
from that harrowing eventful day
standing here I bid farewell to your ghost
as I watch you pass on through the gate way

the gate way between worlds is a narrow one.....

The king reigns.......

the king thrives, long live the king
lording over his domain
from his court behind locked doors
he manages his wondrous reign

runs his business from his room
making phone calls all the while
sending emails and skyping too
expending his empire with style

then he rests between his calls
chilling with games on his laptop
meals and drinks available
so his life doesn't have to stop

when visitors come a calling
he will see them when he`s free
the king thrives, long live the king
thinking he`ll reign eternally........!!

The Moon in all her Glory

to watch the moon drifting along her path
climbing up her orbit route on high
as she rises slowly above the trees
freedom to float freely through the sky

shining brightly over Mother Earth
influencing the flow of the oceans
while night life comes out to hunt and play
filling the atmosphere with emotions

following this beautiful moon pass over
rejuvenating nature as she goes
finding her touch to be empowering
though most of us stay at home and doze

from the purest white to rich blood red
leaving a hazy light in its trail
for this moon is a wonderful orb
rising every evening without fail

I have always loved watching the moon a she rises....!

Time for relaxation

After a stressful day
it`s time for relaxation
to recharge dead batteries
sipping a coffee concoction

watching steam curling upwards
so mesmerising to my eyes
the room full of strong aromas
enjoy the moment, as time flies

with each sip, all stress disperses
helping ease the aches of the day
from my shoulders through to my toes
feel the tensions flowing away

coffee is the best medicine
to refresh the body again
take time out for relaxation
let the latte release the strain.......

mmmm coffee time and relaxation...

Papilio Machaon

delicate wings
so paper thin
soft cream colours
tipped with pale
blue and orange
held in the breeze

large eyes watching
antennas testing
clinging to a stem
by skeleton legs
with curled tongue
tasting the pollen
from this tiny
white blossom

living art
sweet scented
so petite 
so beautiful
light on the air
a wondrous sight

inspired by a wonderful photo by buleria  on DeviantArt

This beautiful Earth

this world all around me
is such an amazing place
so much to see and do
need to love and embrace

from tiny bugs on the ground
to the clouds in the skies
Mother Earth is wondrous
come view it through my eyes

each season is so different
from winter through to fall
such diversity is found
experience it all

from land mass to oceans
creatures of sky or earth
God`s gift to all mankind
just shows us of our worth

never take it for granted
respect all these sights
give thanks that you`re alive
each living soul has rights

Respect Mother Earth, it`s ours for such a short time.....

This Hurt

this anger wells up from deep inside
hatred burning through my very soul
as my world is turned upside down
fearing I`ll never again be whole

you broke my heart before you left me
walking out the door was the last straw
I was dying well before that day
you just didn't care for me any more

you stabbed me fiercely in the back
felt like a jagged knife piercing deep
robbing me of my precious future
knocking my down on the floor to weep

I was so scarred from this ordeal
for it breaks my heart to start again
but I know I have be so strong
to hold me head up high, or be slain

sadly we never know what`s around the corner........

Stormy skies

suddenly the skies went dark
thick heavy clouds over head
and with a rumble in the air
the heavens opened with much dread

as torrential rain beats down
soaking every thing in sight
hammering down upon the roof
turning the neighbourhood into night

as these black clouds blast on through
there`s a heaviness all around
darkness across Mother Earth
as great droplets hit the ground

the sky is lit up suddenly
by bright jagged lightning flashes
followed by rumbling thunder
sounding like cymbals clashing

all through the night this storm rages
thrashing the earth with its force
race across these darkened skies
like a mighty fierce power horse

Storms are not necessarily frightening things to encounter...... they are full of exciting energy.!

Polling Day

As the sun rises
on this auspicious day
for the country decides
at the polling stations
for we`re electing
new members for Europe

with balloons and posters
bright coloured banners
deck chairs positioned
and clipboards ready
now all they can do
is wait for the voters

as people start appearing
in various amounts
voting papers are issued
and decisions are made
by a cross against a name
the atmosphere is tense,

once this task is complete
it`s homeward bound again
to await the results....
fingers crossed that it`s good
and our party has won
of this election day

Polling Day is here!

Walking along a wooded land
Dappled sun light filters through
Spreading light upon the ground
Over a swaying carpet of blue

Listening to the silence
Flittering through the sun shine
All alone in this safe world
Knowing that all this is mine

The sun catches a wing in flight
A moment in time flashes by
 leaves are touched and fall
And a bird calls to say  Hi

Where ever we are at this moment
May we be in pure harmony
Peace with nature all around
So that all life can be free.

I found myself walking along a path through a wood in springtime.  The bluebells were out and it was so peaceful.  I love the sprng time and found that I wanted to remember the experience, so I wrote this.

Tiny Feet

Tiny feet
mean so much
to hold gently
and care for
to love and
tenderly caress
encourage along
life`s way
surround and
 then enclose
in protection,
keep them safe
care for them
and heal them
from danger
and harms hurts
watch them grow
and develop
show them
let them go
without a tear
no more
soft cotton wool
good and healthy.
fit and strong
all the love
to live life through.

This poem was written on a scrap of card after I held my child and caress their feet in comfort. The feet in the poem represent that child and their journey through life, while they are growing up until they leave your care and start their next journey on their own.  Its hard to let your child go off and live their life for themselves.

False Friendships

oh for this world of false friendships
whose that befriend you when its beneficial
but when you`re really in need and suffering
they are no where to be artificial

in public they`re always there to be seen
the "do gooders" in life that every one likes
but when in need there`s no shoulder to cry on
what was once a cuddly friend.... only a ball of spikes

Friendships are an important part of life
so I feel the moral of this sad story should be
never put your full trust in to a friendship
until they have proven themselves to be worthy

It`s sad when you find out the people you thought was a friends......
proved to be something completely different !

Sheer Pain

This sheer pain
ripping through my body
red hot pokers
like stabbing needles
breathing painfully
as I try to move
my world diminishing
as this evil takes over

doctors poking me
checking my details
temperature and pulse
bloods samples and swabs
diagnoses and pain relief
then reassurances
assigned to a ward
and treatment started

off to the theatre
to remedy the pain
then a stay in observation
as I slowly recover
back on the ward now
visitors are welcome
the journey begins
along my road to recovery........

Written after a hospital visit.......

Your Photograph

Your photograph says so much
capturing a moment in time
reminding me, I love you so
my emotions are not a crime

those bright jovial blue eyes
crinkling your face in happiness
a huge smile beams back at me
you look awesomely fabulous

remembering that weekend
sun house in the back ground
we`re holding hands and talking
our voices, the only sound

for that summer was the best
my love for you grow stronger
but sadly it didn`t last
you couldn't stay any longer

all I have is your picture
looking at it every day
as I lost you to the angels
but you fought so hard to stay

rest safe and sound now my love
you did all that you could do
holding a spot in my heart
for I`ll never forget you

Its so hard for the ones that are left to go on, momentums are all we have left

My shining star...

There`s a star in the sky
that I look to at night
it shines brightly for me
seeking it out feels so right

For your star shines over all
guiding me along life`s way
I feel you watching from above
ever since that dreadful day

I miss you loving cuddles
and laughter and happiness
but as each year passes by
I'm still full of emptiness

I hope and pray for the day
that we will be together 
so you can hold me in your arms
I will always love you for ever

Can`t believe it`s been seven years since you were taken away
I will always love and miss you Steve xxx

What mother taught us....

Red sky at night looks pretty
and can bring you some comfort
but red sky in the morning
could leave your live so distort

the grass is always greener
on the other side of the fence
we shouldn't count your chicken
before they hatch, things could get tense

beware of foxes dressed as sheep
they`re out to take what ever`s yours
so stay close to whom you trust
and lock the door to your stores

never take things for granted
all that glitters is not gold
be careful who you call friend
you can`t always trust the old

so what ever happens in life
listen to what your mother said
lest you forget her good advice
for one day you may end up dead

always remember the advice your mother gave you
for one day it may be really important....!

image found on
Life in a seed

from such a plain simple seed
planted in rich moist earth
labelled, loved and watered
we wait to see its mighty worth

a tiny green shoot is first seen
winding its way to the light
as each leaf slowly unfurls
growth can be such a tough fight

with each day this shoot continues
to stretch up towards the sky
the red and pleasant flower
so elegant, tall and spry

then when the time feels right
intriguing things start to happen
all become a master piece
bursts of colour fills the glen

the wonder of life......!

 Mother Earth

I stand here on the pinnacle of the world
watching over all that was made by man
while angelic angels champion above
wondering how we could ruin God`s plan

For Mother Earth is suffering so badly
as man is stripping her of her treasures
polluting all of the worlds resources
and extinguishing so many creatures

Will we ever be repentant of our greed
and see the error of our wicked ways
if we continue along this evil path
we only hasten the end of all our days

we have to look after the earth if we want to continue dwelling here...

Cat and mouse.!

snuffles heard as tiny claws
scratch across the floor
flash of brown fur
is seen once more

from a flick of the tail
to a prick of an ear
whiskers are twitching
feline attention is here

the chase has now started
flash of cat and mouse
a growl or a squeak
fur racing around the house

in and out of all the rooms
chased by this scary creature
mouse runs for its freedom
I'm told that this is nature....!

as summer approaches the out comes inside...!

pink snow in the air
silk petals touching our hearts
showing signs of spring

trickling waters
cascading over hard rocks
refreshing to all

brush of white feathers
sweet winged cherubs fluttering
 our little cheeky angels

candle lit waters
flames drifting on by slowly
Floating Candles

soft shimmering lights
mirrored on the surface
as each one floats along
illuminating this place

half submerged in water
these small islands of flames
sail on by so slowly
like bright elegant dames

these gentle candles
illuminate their way
drifting through the waters
creating a floating bouquet

inspired by a photo of floating candles....

A small shimmer is spied
in the corner of my eye
not sure where it came from
did it float down from on high

there`s something about it
that seems to give me hope
a warmth spreading outwards
just feel I can now cope

this essence is beside me
around me and within
I'm certainly not scared
it`s almost like my kin!

Spirits are all around us, most we need not fear....!

Battles only creates death

great noise of war
the clash of steel
bitter stench of death
determined zeal

fighting for honour
the stakes are high
much is at risk
hear their battle cry

such fierce fighting
men fell down dead
the wounded groan
and rivers run red

all through the day
fighting goes on
right through the night
`till all were gone

as the sun rises
bodies everywhere
god rest their souls
please say a prayer

war solves nothing...just created pain and misery..!

Life blood of feelings...

this flowing red blood
pulsating from my heart
trickling in long lines
across paper set a part

forming words from within
my emotions never cease
true feelings are read
hidden world to release

my pen is a sword
poised ready of battle
champion of justice
not some idle prattle

as the blood flows on
my feelings are exposed
laid bare for all to see
yet remain so composed

this thick rich red blood 
forming words from my soul
please take care while reading
words I can not control

Once I start a poem, I never quite know where it is going to end.....
come and join me on the journey..!

Where ever we look there`s colour
from brown soil to the blue skies
even the shades of our skin
kaleidoscopes for our eyes

long rows of red bricked houses
wood work painted in many hues
all the flowers in their gardens
bumble bees feel so enthused

then through all the countryside
fields of bright yellow rape seeds
fruit trees covered in blossom
village ponds edged by tall reeds

for everywhere there`s colours
such emotions can be found
each changed with the seasons
enjoy it as you look around

Colour stimulates our minds
and can brighten up our days
gives us an appetite for life
cheers us up in many ways

Colours, colours everywhere, love the many vivid hues....

Give and take.....

Your behaviour upsets me
this disregard to everything
hurts me to the core
thinking that you're the king

standing there all hard and cold
you`re so intimidating
with a voice that`s hurtful
it`s so humiliating

your attitude is very bad
treating home with disregard
I know that I'm perfect
but this place is sadly marred

for you have so much to learn
and I am happy to teach you
but when you act like this
you`re too tough to get through

I sit here and weep some tears
asking myself what when wrong?
I only want to help you
I know I`ll have to remain strong

wish we could work together?
I can`t stand all this spite
we should all "give and take"
it`s not good for us to fight

Feuds are never good.....

Copyright © Lissie Poems 2014. All rights reserved

Lonely pain.........

This pain I feel
as time grows near
tears me a part....
why`d you disappear?

I know the angels came
and you had no choice
I just really wish
that you`d had a voice

maybe, just maybe
they could of been wrong
left you here with me
to complete our song

but now I'm left here
the angels have you
there`ll never be another
as I loved you so

Losing a loved one suddenly is so very hard to over come........

Mr Bumble Bee

Loud buzzings announces
there are bumble bees about
hopping from flower to flower
collecting the pollen while out

His big fat striped body
held high on stubby wings
buzzing around everywhere
following directions from one that sings

love to hear him as he goes
its a sign that summers here
pollinating the fruit trees
I salute him with a cheer!

Love the sound of the bumble bees....its summertime again..!!

Sleep watching

the curves of your body
as you lay there sleeping
watching you at slumber
your safety I'm keeping

to see you there relaxed
wonder what you`re dreaming
as you look so at peace
your radiance beaming

want to curl up with you
protect you from all harms
now you lay snugly here
holding you in my arms

hair limp on the pillow
your skin so soft and sweet
my sweet dear sleeping there
tucked up under the sheet

sleep watching your loved ones....

Hi everyone

I started this blog just over 2 years ago and have over 600 poems gathered together here.
I enjoy painting pictured through the use of words and am so grateful that others enjoy reading them.

Therefore I so happy to say a great big thanks to everyone, as I have passed 13,000 views.

Please feel free to stroll through my poems and pick a different one to read and hopefully enjoy.
I would love to know what you think of them and am happy to hear from you, so please leave your comments for me to read.

Many many thanks for all your support with my journey through poetry.

through the colours for the setting sun
watching the shadows growing longer
as trees and buildings are silhouetted
by the night that`s getting stronger

slowly the moon rises up on high
and shines so bold and brightly
the sounds of the darkness are heard
as the blackness takes over politely

Mother earth slows down to rest
after the activities of the day
time to regenerate everything
throughout the night in every way

the quiet of the night is refreshing
as the moon travels along its course
influencing all life below
our body clock to the ocean force

so as you slumber through the night
the world carries on without you
until the sun rising in the morning
shines on us the whole day through

love each day and night..!

I find myself here without a life
for I am no longer a dear wife
the angels came and took you away
I've not been happy since that day
my kids are growing and spreading their wings
which leaves me here remembering things
I am not sure where I go from here
spending old age alone is what I fear
can`t get use to you not being around
without your support, I feel I've drowned
so now I ask, will you be there for me?
and help me look forward and be happy
for I will always love and miss you
and know you`ll help get me through..!

Will always have you in my heart now, where ever I go throughout life !

My friend Philip
is a real cool guy
great to be with
sad to say goodbye

took a long time
for us to meet
but very happy
as we got on a treat

we shared a joke
enjoyed a cream tea
chatted about so much
and walked by the sea

glad we met up
spent time together
Les and Mark are great
shame about the weather

So let me just say
Phil you came through
you`re one of a kind
I'm glad to know you

Just a little ditty for my dear friend,Philips James Simmons

Jigsaw Puzzles

Inter locking pieces
fitting nicely together
as the puzzle comes to life
creating lovely pictures

All the different colours
blues, reds, yellows and greens
each piece revealing more
of the beautiful scenes

Some bits are deceptive
not every piece will fit
but as you slowly get there
you will find the right bit

So when it is complete
and the box is all clear
your pride will really show
the full puzzle to appear

just love jigsaw puzzles......!

Pain felt deep down inside
pulsating at your soul
ripping wildly through you
your body will never be the same
as the aches and pains continue
eating away at your inner peace
where do you go with this
can it ever be stopped?
who knows that answer.......

love feels uncomfortable
your the pain is so intense
trust is very difficult
will you ever recover
this uncertainty is not good
for the constant pain
eats away at you
not sure what will be left......

so as you hold your shrivelled heart
and plead for someone to help
your dark sunken eyes
praying for some kindness
wanting to rebuild your life
take away all this pain
to soothe your pulsating soul
and mend your broke heart

There is always hope.....

New friendships

wow what a grand day I've had
met my friends Les and Mark and Phil
made me feel so welcome
their friendship really fits the bill

Afternoon in Exmouth with Phil
walking by the sandy beach
chatting about everything
no topic was out of reach

We pottered about the shops
laughing and joking all the day
even shared a Devon cream tea
and nearly got lost around the bay

Then back to peaceful Sandford
for a nice cup of tea and chat
while we all get to know each other
and not forgetting their cats

We decided to go for a meal
and settled on a lovely place
Mark kindly drove us all there
with his wonderful charm and grace

The meal was so delicious
its great we all get on so well
then we went back to Sandford
after a chat, we said a fond farewell

This is a day I will not forget
as I have three great new friends
can`t want for next get together
a great friendship that never ends

Thanks Phil, Les and Mark

we all have an angels
that guides us along our way
but sadly some can`t see theirs
which is a sorrowful day.

They`re there to protect us
and to keep us all in line
but this is done so cheerfully
so we know that will be fine.

their soft white feathered wings
can wrap around us so tight
guarding us from the evils of life
and help all things to be right

so never forget your angel
for its important to you
this heavenly angel is yours
will help you your whole life through...

I love angels and all that they do for us......!

Spring Time

Apple blossom 
sweet smelling tulips
frog`s eggs in the pond
all signs that spring is here
bluebells and caterpillars
the gardens come to life
longer days and shorter nights
sitting out in the evening sun
listening to the bird calls
watching the cats play
relaxing in the sunshine
enjoying this spring time!

Spring time, when Mother earth wakes up..!

The New Inn

Nestled in a small hidden dip
lies a quaint little Inn
thatched roof on white painted walls
a great retreat in my opinion

Many centuries old it stands
as sturdy as the day it was built
some where for the traveller to rest
before they tire and finally wilt

Timber beams stretch across the ceilings
gives the place some charm and character
nice cup of tea and a warm bed too
and this is for me the main factor.

Down in the warm friendly bar
great food and beverage is served
don`t forget to hello to Captain
rave revues are greatly deserved

After a long hard day of driving
its great to know I can stop and rest
for here in mid Devon I think you`ll find
The New Inn is certainly the best

Rest and relaxation after a long drive.!

Black on black through utter darkness
spiraling black holes pierce my soul
a void that can not be filled in
sadly I will never be whole

Anger raging through my system
causing an emotional flood
through this sad and torn heart
slowly oozing thick rich red blood

As all my will power drains away
life seems unworthy to behold
so let this existence depart
from this harsh and unyielding world

Depressing times bring depressing poems...!

Sad times

I am sat here alone with tears
rolling slowly down my cheek
wondering what I've done
all this stress makes me feel so weak

You come across so aggressive
this is unsettling and sad
I am really not against you
so please don`t make out I am that bad

Can we please get on together
no more arguments and fights
for all this is tearing us a part
you know that all of this is`t right

So now`s its time for us to make up
there`s much to look forward too
so let`s put all this behind us now
you have a future in front of you!

When times are hard and you feel down, remember your friends
and family are always there for you .....!

Painting with words

The ink in my pen
paints a picture
for all to read
the love in my soul
stimulates all
that is in my heart
for painting a scene
through the use of words
focuses the mind
writing poetically
opens my inner self
to all that`s around me
for with coloured inks
I can paint the world
for all to read...

Painting pictures through words opens the mind

Dancing Inks

My coloured inks
poised there ready
to conjure up images
words with meanings
to instil emotions
make the heart beat faster
or the soul to weep
rainbow kaleidoscopes
racing across the pages
dancing words of joy
to sorrowful laments
these words
these inks
powerful motivators
creating written pictures

love to create images through the power of words

Photo Wall

My memory wall
with photos on show
and each one cherish
watching the family grow

Hanging there proudly
for everyone to see
with different frames
forms a family tree

From cradle to grave
everyone`s hung there
all through the decades
wow look at their hair!

Styles and fashion change
as the photos reveal
the family portraits
these records are ideal

So as the families grow
new photos will appear
to share our memories
all smiling year on year !

Love looking at the photos and seeing what we all looked like years ago,
brings back great memories...!

Strangeness of the weather

Tonight the sky appears so strange
like painted snow capped hill tops
splashed right across the horizon
in the centre, to the ground it flops

looming grey skies as stillness descends
as slowly we pass through the low cloud
into what seems a strange muffled void
with the fields covered in a white shroud

suddenly we`re plunged into heavy rain
roaring torrents bombarding the car
as we struggle to continue driving
deafening and frightening by far

just as soon as it started, it stopped
battered and forlorn, we carry on
determined to reach our destination
for nature has raged and then t`was gone.

we are all the mercy of Nature....never under estimate it...!

Sleepless Nights.....

Each night comes
and I can`t sleep
for since you left
I'm counting sheep
you made me whole
and gave me peace
but from that time 
that will now cease
for this I know
that life goes on
I won`t give up
as I am strong!
so let me sleep
for I must cope
with what life brings
there`s always hope
you broke my heart
and dimmed my lights
for still I`ll have
these sleepless nights

It`s hard for the ones left behind.......

Power of the forge

red hot twisted metal
emerges from the fire
with hammer on anvil,
creating through desire

returning to the heat
while stoking up a storm
followed by rhythmic beating
hot metal will transform

the forge is filled with noise
heat, dust and vitality
this raw power over steel
sheer force and brutality

mastering of the hard steel
is a feat in its own right
the sheer power it instills
you just know you`ll win this fight.

Night out

Jingle jangle in my pocket
lose change just weighing me down
need some folding money now
for my night out on the town

money money is all I need
to make the most of a good night
just got my wages paid in today
now I know all is going to be right

Party party all the night long
dancing, drinking and having fun
love meeting up with all my friends
then walking home once the night is done!

money, friends and having fun leads to a great night out...!

A quiet moment

To lose someone so close
is to lose a piece of your soul
it`s so hard to function
for you no longer feel whole

Wanting him to walk through the door
to hear your name on his lips
and feel safe in his strong arms
you`re left with unfinished scripts

his coat next to yours on the peg
making one mug of tea now, not two
the way he would laugh at your jokes
oh your heart hurts as you miss him so

So sat on this quiet evening
as you sit and reminisce
remembering those great moments
his kindness, love and gentle kiss

Just remembering my husband this evening...
Love and miss you Steve xx
