THAT'S A LOVELY START TO APRIL 2013 , Turnip. Love BA x
Iurnip, I imagine it must be very difficult for you, however much you love your son. Good poem.
I am extremely fortunate that my granddaughter,Lucy, has no health issues; that is left to my PD. Just the same I love her dearly and wrote a poem for her to let her know how much. it's relevance here is the poem's garden theme and its therapeutic nature together with the opportunity for escapism!
When the sun shines in a garden
There’s nowhere else to be;
My heart lies deep in a garden
Created for you and me
Blossom fairies in full flight
Form Intricate patterns of shadow and light
In delicate pinks and china blues;
That ever make me think of you
And what you mean to me.
Should you ever need me,
You know where I will be
Safe in that special garden
Only you and I can see.
If life takes awkward twists and turns
And you begin to lose your way
Make haste to our special garden;
You’ll find me waiting there.
You’re one of Nature’s Children,
So good, so pure and true,
And life will deal it’s favoured hand
To a special girl like you
You’ll play life’s hand with kindness,
With courage and with pride
always putting others first
Softening their woes and hurts
When finally that day arrives
and I’m no longer by your side
No loving arms to hold you close
Or feel your love and warmth inside
You are my special Angel
Created from my love,
So strong, the power of life nor death
will ever break the bond
Just remember when you feel alone
and answers hard to find,
I’ll ever be your help and guide
My arms are always open wide
These things I promise faithfully
Until eternity unwinds!
Nice one dreami48.
This is one for the morning :
April has a day for fun I seem to recall
A day for playing practical jokes on one and all
April Fool they shout with glee
Now lets see if you can get one over on me
Well let them all have their day of fun
we're only here once when all's said and done
And we should get out of life so very much more laughter
'cause I'm not sure if we can laugh in the Everafter
So come on now all you miserable old devils I say
Come on join in the fun and make someone's day
remember that you on April 1 hold the key
To bring some joy to your long suffering family
Those that live with Parkies just like you
deserve some happiness so go on give them their due
This all Fools Day is now your chance again
To reward them for their very own heartache & pain
Dreami48, I think your granddughter will love her special poem.
Mike, I'll be thinking of the fun you're having in the morning!
THE WAY AHEAD
The way is steep
The path is hard
I wear my boots
From out the yard.
I am from stock
That is so tough
I do not mind
If I live rough.
I much prefer
The life of gods
But I can climb
Against the odds.
I take my staff
At start of day
I face what comes
Go on my way.
Well done, ElleMac, I think that is a lovely poem! love BA x
Hi Mike, April Fools day? I am known as the family joker, I do it all the time, I may have Parky, and, yes, at times I do utter the odd very unladylike expression....but it helps! But My motto is ,Fun,Fun, Fun all the way and everyday!
Naturally there are other things I love too, but we won't go into that just now!
Lots of Love, Blue Angel x
May I Rest My Weary Head On Your Shoulder.,
Do You Mind If Our Fingers Entwine,.
May I Have A Tiny Sip Of Your Wine.,
I Feel Soooooooooo Weary, Sweetheart
If I Close My Eyes Just For A Little While.,
If We Should Lay Beneath This Sheet.,
Would You Please
Just Hold Me Tight,.
And, If We Fell Soooooooooooooooo Deeply In
Will You Please
Marry Me Tomorrow.
This shoulder is a cold shoulder
as are my fingers
now encased in mitts
share my wine
at this price,
next it will be come to dine
have you been to Tesco lately?
I feel so wary, wary of chance
My eyes are wide open
my door is closed
the sheets are in the wash
Daz works wonders
As for the soooooooo
Peter Gabriel sledgehammered
you will not love me
Hi Bogman, Are you OK? Or was my poem just rubbish? It's not like you, I always
read your poems, well, I read everyone's. Have you never been in love? I think that was a bit harsh but, it's ok I don't mind critism at all. Love Blue Angel x
P.S. How do you know I won't love you (as a friend) tomorrow. ? Please cheer up.
Hi, Can someone please read my poem on the next page and also the one following. And, could someone please explain to me what I have done wrong, because I seem to upset him, but I don't know why and I didn't mean to upset anyone. Love Blue Angel x
Ridet et mundus ridere vobiscum.
Smile & the whole world smiles with you.....I think?
BA, don't worry. I should think he's just being funny.x
Gulp........I have been away and have only just read your reaction. I really liked your poem and my piece was as a reply to the emotions portrayed. In the same way as the song "Will you still love me tomorrow"? That was the intention even if the delivery was off.It was intended as a caution to not leave yourself open to exploitation by predatory males.
So sorry and I will not be doing that again.
ah bogman, it happens to all of us. poetry is by nature ambiguous and i for one have been in the same situation.
HI, Thank you everyone. especially you , Bogman.It's fine I just didn't understand. P.S. Christo, forgive me if I am wrong, but that looks like latin, didn't do a lot of latin, German , Italian and a bit of Latvian yes, soplease translate.
