Poetry Blogs (fleeting moments)
From the day you are born
On the first day you cry
To the safe place you sleep
In the cot where you lie
On that first day at school
Where you struggle and try
From the first girl you kiss
To the way you feel shy
From your very first job
To the company tie
On the day that we met
To that very first sigh
On that day that you left
To the first ques...

We were strangers by the pool
there was summer on your skin
I lay low, opened my whole body

as it recedes behind a fog
you wonder what it means...
Even naked your body was a silk gown
as you sc...

and there was loads to go around
and Dad didn't ...

Sometimes we’re only supposed to look and not see
But each of us is, as we are supposed to be
If it wasn’t for you

So little do you know that so much of me has changed
You saw through my defences, over years they had aged
So grateful ...
