Love comes in many guises and is shown in many ways

It keeps our lives together throughout the nights and days

The first time we open our eyes, we open up our heart

And love surrounds our every breath right from the very start

When wandering vision brings us to yearnings we can’t disguise

Then mutual heartbeats begin and we see it in their eyes

All the words and songs and symbols repeat each pulsing thought

Our dreams surround the vision for the love that we have sought

Then the hearts that we are born with continue to expand and grow

Encompassing each and every addition as we move through the life we know

We are so lucky to be born with our hearts truly strong and pure

For we know that with all love, life will always and ever endure

 It seems like only yesterday when you were by my side

Our lives so entwined – love keeping us sublime

I keep thinking that I will walk into a place nearby

And you will be there, like we were suspended in time


I know that won’t happen – not here – not now

It’s just a hint and a reminder of what will be

But on another plane and place in time

We will unite and our journey will set us free


Our souls will embrace before we know it

We are meant to be together – that is a certainty

It truly is amazing that the fates know us

That’s why we got along so perfectly


Oh, there were times when we drove each other crazy

But more times we were locked in loves embrace

It was meant to be from the moment our eyes met

I close my eyes and still see that look upon your face


I remember that day when all events collided

Our paths crossed when fate determined it was time

And we knew we had once again found our soul mates

Just as in the past, our future lives will surely intertwine


Fate brought us together

A union that would never part

We are inextricably united

We knew it from the very start

Kite Flying

Kite Flying
Chasing the wind up over the hill
Back down in the glen it whirls around still
The clouds morphing through in awesome detail
The constant yank of the strings without fail
Brilliant puffy ships sailing so slowly across the sky
Gentle breezes sweeping over my face with each try
I feel those whispers from the Universe taking place
And I know without doubt that I’m standing in grace
I remember it well –  though it was a long time ago
The kids were so young and impatient to go
Yet I always knew that to run with the wind while flying a kite
Makes peace with the world and everything right

For My Children


For My Children

Each one born under a different sign

Each special and unique

Our family grew with each new face

As we watched our circle of love increase


The very first day our fingers touched and I felt each strong response

I knew that time would never change the thoughts my heart ensconced

I always knew we were intertwined and had a special start

That distance and space could never really keep us all apart


My children, my kids, my dearest friends – you are all of these to me

You’ve always been a source of joy and pride – that everyone can see

And every day you show your love, you strengthen my life’s goal

You are bright lights that blaze and keep me true to my soul


Thank you for being my kids

From one very lucky Mum

The Dictator

I watch the news and shed many tears

As I see the little children’s fears

A tyrant chooses an army and genocide

Saying it’s only to kill intruders from the outside


But every day the people die

Just staying alive is all they try

They hide from bombs and an army gun

And the babies cry and the children run


Atrocities like this should never be

These people’s choice is just to flee

They do not deserve such pain and grief

They stand alone for justice and their belief


The people only want peace and a chance to live

But democracy is not what he chooses to give

They’ve lost their homes, their loved ones and their life

And there is nowhere to hide from all this strife


The pain and misery this oppressor does serve

Shows he is just a dictator with ferocious nerve

He thinks his power will win this despicable show

But independence fights and freedom does grow


One day his fierce path of murder will finally cease

When freedom comes and brings sweet release

And the world will demand his violent life to forfeit  

For he chose terror over the lives of the innocent

They come in a myriad of colours and materials to boot

Wool and acrylic and every specialty yarn dyed with the root

They are known as cardigans or pullovers, jerseys and jumpers too

With embellishments like buttons and toggles and belts – just to name a few

Garments knitted and crocheted with special loving care

By Grandmas and Mums in the world everywhere

Available in all shapes and sizes with yarn choices too many to list

A volume of shades for the choosing and designs one cannot resist

Crocheted and knitted in patterns galore – snuggly soft and cuddly thick

Or lightweight and lacy for summer – always one that will just do the trick

There’s nothing as comforting at the end of day as donning that favorite sweater

That envelopes you with warmth and security and just makes the whole day better

So, no matter which favourite you grab just for warmth or a nap

A sweater should always be close by just like an adult security wrap


Happy new Year 2014

Looking forward to a wonderful year

Surrounded by friends and family

and all those we hold dear

May your days be full of joy and love

And may every aspect of your life

Fit just like a glove.
