S.A.D.

Nature’s soft caress blessed me
with air to breathe,
water to drink,
sunlight to nourish.
I shone, for a while,
and then I,
like the sun,
went down.

The World Around Me

The World around me has changed.
Shining light from a billion stars
brightens the night skies.
Music tickles the senses
once deaf to nought but shaded thought.
I see the twinkling in your eyes
when I close mine.
Whilst you are no more in substance,
your spirit is everywhere.
You are the breeze that ruffles my hair;
the sun that kisses my flesh;
the raindrops that wash away my tears;
the moonbeams that open my heart
to water the earth with love.

Dandelion seeds

I will write of shiny things
And perhaps one day
I can reach out and touch
a heart enough to say
‘I liked what you wrote today;
You made my soul sing’

I’ll talk of trees,
Of branches and leaves
I’ll regale with a tale… or two
Of rainbows and sunshine
Birds and bees
The sun, the moon

I’ll form words so bright
To share with the universe
Echoes of starlight
Reflected in their eyes

There will be no goodbyes
Only celebrations of tomorrows
As the breeze blows them to me
Floating on waves of warm air
Like dandelion seeds
