with the stands packed with fans
anticipation running high
anthems sung, matches begun
raising our voices to the sky

reds, blues, greens and white
mascots showing with great pride
odd shaped balls and scrums
passions strong on each side

with fifteen man on both teams
power, strength and unity
we`re in for an exciting match
so onward to a great victory !

Nothing appears as it seems
I feel a loneliness in my soul
though family are all around
I`m only fragments, not whole

noises from the other room
television and laughter
thought I would remain intact
but nothing lasts for ever

as time goes by life changes
people tend to come and go
like the shifting of the ocean sands
emotions seem to be so low

oh I wish, just for a smile
to boost me to a higher plain
keep me for hell`s doorway
or at least to keep me sane!

I remain here in this room
never to spread my wings and fly
and stuck in a time bubbles
watching the world passes me by

It doesn't matter what we do or
where we go in our lives,
as long as the memories we make
are made with each other !

Lillesden School

Dark gothic buildings with fire escapes
stood looking over green luscious land
an education establishment
found in the Garden of England

at the end of a long winding drive way
appearing there, so proud and so strong
turrets standing out against the skyline
there to remember, your whole life long

laughter was heard through the corridors
sounding like ghosts from a former time
pupils from everywhere through the years
when Lillesden was in it`s prime

eerie silence now found throughout the school
dust collecting on every surface
echoing footsteps on the wooden floors
empty rooms without any purpose

now that it`s stripped of all it`s glory
classrooms all choked with vegetation
even the lead from the roof has gone
is there nothing safe at this location

there`s one thing to be said for all this
Lillesden School was the best place to be
we may not have a school to visit
but we`ve memories and friends to see.

Lillesden School for Girls in Hawkhurst Kent, was my former school. It`s glory days long gone, but it`s memories live on !

Passing Ghost

A sudden shiver hits me
feels like a ghost has passed by
the air`s gone cold and clammy
looking round I wonder why

the sensation wasn't pleasant
felt like fingers across my face
a shiver runs down my spine
as I shrink back from this place

feel a whisper close to me ear
this sets my heart pounding fast
who has come back to haunt me?
what have I disturbed from my past

no sooner had the air turned cold
the ghostly apparition was gone
my pounding heart was all that`s left
as this blast from the past moves on!!

So much has inspired me through this day
urging me to paint pictures via the ink in my pen
dancing across my crisp parchment
creating images from the thoughts held in my head
now it`s time to lay my pen rest my mind until dawn......!

Love is....

Love is                     patient
love is kind               and gentle
it does not boast        or hurt anyone
love is not proud or rude love is not self 
seeking or keeps records of wrong doings
it`s tender and caring building memories
 together. Love is not blind, but sees all 
 that is true. Love is an unconditional 
commitment.  Love is a decision,
strong feeling a judgement.
Love is  a  promise to
honour each other
and for eternity
I love you

My Secret Helper

Home work is horrid
it stops me playing
stuck up in my room
but I`m not complaining

I have a secret weapon
for Spiderman is here
helps me with Maths and English
before it`s time to disappear..!

   Batman came to school..

Batman came to school today
to learn his alphabet
brought an apple for his teacher
then sat down with the class pet

after lunch we played football
but his cape got in the way
back inside for art class
then home after a great day

Met a scary witch...!

I met a scary witch today
marching through the town
she wore stripy stockings
a crooked nose and a frown

she carried an old book of spells
along with a scrawny cat
a broomstick in her hand
and wearing her black pointed hat !

Signed me away...!

There we were on that day
you took the pen and signed me away
I saw a tear in the corner of your eye
and if I could of spoke, I`d of asked you why?
mummy I know you had no choice
just wished that I found a voice
why won`t you look at me I`d say
instead of putting it off for another day?
the door opens and you walk out
all I wanna do is scream and shout
as the door shuts there`s only silence
now I`m alone without any guidance

all I ever wanted was a family
now there`s only going to be me

Afternoon Catnap

A fluffy bundle of cat
perched on the garden wall
sleeps in the afternoon sun
not heeding any call

stretched out in the sun light
purring so happily
eyes only just open
so she can sleep, yet see

love to watch her sleeping
in the bright sun shine
wonder what`s she dreaming
I'm sure its all divine !

flinching when fly pass by
but drifts back off again
in the afternoon sun
on her wall she`ll remain

Love to watch the cat sleep in the sunshine,  so relaxing..!

 Monkey came to tea

Monkey came to tea
he tucked into jam and bread
making such a mess
as he put jam upon his head

we gave him milk to drink
but he poured it on some cake
sucked it up through his straw
and called it milkshake !

Lazy Sunday mornings
relaxing with a frothy coffee
curled up snug on my sofa
what dance will my pen play out...?
as I enjoy this wonderful start to the day
here's hoping you have a great one too!

Sweet Dreams

After a hard day playing
it`s time for you to sleep
off to where you can dream
all comfy on the sofa
curled up snug and warm
thinking of tasty cream

you look so soft and fluffy
in the refection of the moon
whiskers caught in its light
purrfect as you sleep
sweet dreams little one
slumber on through the night

Be my Valentine.....

Meeting your eyes across the room
just feeling that this is so right
Brushing against you arm as we passed
I knew this was going to be a great night

You were the perfect gentleman
making sure I had everything I need
A glass of wine to start off with
You really wanted this to succeed   

A rose lay on the table cloth
it`s scent filled me with strong emotion
Seeing the love deep in your eyes
like the swell of a summer`s ocean

Later as we walked hand in hand
your lips kissed the side of my cheek
Sending my heart a fluttering
heightening the aura of mystique

" Be my valentine for ever" 
you whispered gently in my ear
The magic in your eye said it all
I kissed you and replied "yes my dear"

Happy Valentines Day !

A little birthday poem for my mother
to celebrate her 82th Birthday
Love and miss you xXx


As I sit here remembering
all the times we had together
it brings joy to my heart
that I could call you mother

cradled me when I was small
taught me all that I should know
gave me a shoulder to cry on
when times were hard and I was low

encouraged me to stride onward
show the world what I could do
you had faith that I`d succeed
and for that I`ll always love you

pondering on this special day
Birthday wishes to you I send
so love and miss you always 
for you're my mother and best friend!

Frozen Forest

An iced forest frozen in time
perpetually wrapped as if night
dense vegetation that sparkles
like crystal leaves catching the light

what are you hiding amongst the trees
cold secrets locked behind the bark
petrified for eternity
as I travel deeper through the dark

cocooned in this winter scenery
each leave is iced to the core
from grass blades to each new bud
warm sun to be seen no more

The storm

The sky was black with rage
as the rain lashed down
winds blasting from the west
as the earth starts to drown

batten down the hatches
this storm will be so fierce
many trees bent over
howling gales that pierce

brollies turned inside out
this storm`s so frightening
skies dark just like night time
lit up by flash lightning

best to be inside now
as the storm rages on
we`re safe from the torrent 
`til the light of the dawn.....

New beginnings

With the backdrop of a colourful sunrise
I'm painting the pictures in my head
that have raced throughout my slumber
let ink flow freely across a crisp white canvas
poetry in motion for all to read..!

to my angel in heaven
today I`m thinking of you
four years since you left us
I miss and love you so

now you have your wings
and watch us from above
missing your fun and laughter
and all your caring love

sometimes I find a feather
and know you've called on me
I treasure them for ever
and hold them close to me

though four years has past by
the pain never goes away
you`ll always in our hearts
each and every day

Heavenly Moon.

This tiny speck of light
shining through the dark at night

way up high in the sky
where angelic angels fly

this orb of fire that I see
wonder what it could be

it feels good to see it there
sparkling bright with great flair

this sweet heavenly sphere
that fills my heart with cheer

hope I'll see you again soon
my heaven sent shiny moon

On a clear night, it`s great to see this bright shiny orb we call the moon!

through time immortal
loving partners exist
entwined together

as passionately they kissed
