I bought this hat
Not to share
It’s very good
Keeps out the glare
For my eyes
They are so glaucomatised
I do so try
Not to cry
But the mist is creeping
Inside I’m weeping
But each day
I must find a way
To find some joy
And oh boy!
Easy it is not
I’ve not forgot
The wonders I can see
Being taken from me
I’ll try to adjust
It is a must
So sounds I hear
Become now dear
So sing me a song
It’s won’t take long
To brighten my day
In a different way
Take this hand and lead me there
I need your love for you I care
Take this heart and hold it tight
I need your love with all my might
Take this precocious soul of mine too
I need your love to see me through
Take my life it’s yours to keep
I need your love so don’t make me weep
Time is our only enemy
It chips away our life
Everything we do
Happiness or strife
Depends on time we have
On this earth it is only short
We think we have forever
But very soon we are caught
The days creep up on us
We think we have so many hours
Before we are pushing up the daisies
But want still to be pruning pretty flowers
We are told make the most of every day
As we move around and sometimes find it hard to play
Often we just want to ponder
And sit in a sunny field yonder
Not rush round all crazy
I really want to do exciting stuff
But honestly I feel quite lazy!
So remember that you won’t last forever
Your life creeps by year by year
Hold close dear friends family together
And enjoy each blessed moment you have each day
Please don’t forget that my dears is all I say!
My canvas stays empty
Why should that so be
I am an artist with passion
I just want to see
I just want to see you ask
by that what do you mean
An idea to be creative
is something to glean
My canvas stays empty
My ideas are shaded with mist
I have ideas to sketch
I have a great big list
But my canvas stays empty
because my vision just cant see it
My heart wants to paint
But my eyes just cant do it
Once not long ago
my canvas was showered
With roses, poppies
and my beloved sunflowers
But my canvas stays empty
Cos my eyes wont let me see
What once was beloved
my precious art to me
So the canvas will change
It wont be a painting to ponder
but a heart felt with words
something different to wonder
My canvas is different
Though it cant be seen
But felt with the heart
So with the end of the tints
comes a new start
new beginnings are borne
Though i can only scorn
at this mist that is taking away
the sunny sunflower i love to this day
words to me spoken
words to be written
words to be remembered well
i can only tell…
you this is the start of something new
As my misty eyes open to a world
the most beautiful things in life cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart – Helen Keller – deaf and blind from birth
Please say a prayer and have thoughts today
For those near and far away
Who have suffered under hands of atrocities
Whilst tempers outraged with terrible possibilities
In Manchester London Barcelona these mindless acts
To destroy our lives we try and keep in tact
Pray for peace and kindness in this world
In Sira Afghanistan and more
We don’t hear all the news
Of places with no media views
Where innocent people suffer each day
In order that these madmen get their way
And destroy lives
It is barbaric
And such a waste of time … precious time…
Please let these crazy minded people see the light
And of our planet observe the plight!
The icebergs are melting
The water is rising
The ozone layer is getter larger
Every day it will become harder
To maintain our World
As once we knew
As amid the chaos that does spew
How can this beautiful planet survive?
We know that good will always prevail
And will rise above evil
Amid the ashes of the world
I can see fresh new shoots rising
Because there will always be a way
To shine forth with courage
And save the day!
Katy cat are you here?
Now you know how i hold you very dear
But what can you sit on now?
The iPad or my new shirt
A cushion or my just ironed skirt!
An Amazon box does take favour too
When you need to hide or feeling blue !
Don’t even take a leaving bow!
You just jump and growl
At The cat next door!
Oh! You’ve just got it pinned to the floor!
You’re supposed to be a relaxing pet
But that is something I have to see yet!
You rush around like a looney cat
Under this and over that!
Knock over everything in sight
See the cat next door for a fight!
Sick on the carpet,please not!
Now your cat food I have forgot!
Well…My nerves are frayed
Today I prayed
That this pussycat would behave
And be cute
Not sit on my boot
But there you are in a box
You’ve scratched the sofa
And stolen my sox
You sit in Pollys dog bed without a blink
It really does make you think!
My lap you sit on with comfort too
And stick your claws in my arm oh phew!
The pain is that is like a needle jab
an injection from the doctors lab!
Sometimes you make me feel so cross
As you do really think you are the boss
Then at last you lay down and purr
With your beautiful face and lovely fur
So it is really all worth that while
To share with you your special style
Bringing peace and love
To my stressful life with passion
As you sit once again ony best cushion
To walk along the longest pier
In the world ! Wow one and half miles
Does give us sunny smiles!
Is so beautiful to do
And what a view!
If the water is still
The sun makes it glisten
Sometimes it’s peaceful, silence
And then the seagulls
There they circle
Flying high or sitting on the bar!
There is nothing like it
To walk out on the water so far
Be upon the waves
Like Jesus walking on the water..
Have you thought of that?
The simili …
Gives you stillness
Of our world, the earth, the sea
I’ve walked this pier since I was a child
Holding my fathers hand dear
Without a fear
And tasting the candy floss the icecream
The penny arcades, the aquarium… memories …
It’s now just like a dream…
Times travelled so far
And here we are
Now my guide dog Polly walks down with me
Cos you know, I can’t see…
My way so easily these days..
The wonderful feeling
Of the water beneath my feet, not getting wet
Is to be held in awesome respect
For this great pier
Of the Victorian era
Will never give way
And I will always see the feeling
Of its awe so great
Perhaps taken for granted I feel
So perhaps you should steal
A moment to walk out there today
In the weather, come what may
And feel the presence of it
Be forever in the hearts of us who know it
It will be there … so walk out on the water with grace my dear friends …
A lonely flower stood on the hill
No it had no host
