I started writing poetry in 1995 I was awarded a editor’s choice in1997 by the International library of poetry. My lifetime is from experience not ear say and not out of books. So many people bury their heads in the sand . We all need to take heed and talk out loud . Being a Mum ,Gran and a Great Gran in my 75th year you could say I’ve had long journey and would like to share some of my experiences . You could say some time good and sometimes not . My poems l enjoy writing them and I find writing things down keeps my mind active not very good at spelling but learning .My memory is fading a little. I could never spell when younger but kind people on write out loud have helped me along the way . Since joining my mind is forever busier and also my thoughts I forever try writing them down . I have wrote over 300 poems not published my minds in a whirl . I enjoy reading them it keeps me going let’s hope a little longer . Being from Yorkshire we speak has we find sometimes good and sometimes bad . What you see is what you get . Hard workers and know what they want . My mum had dementia for over twenty five years. Worked full time all her married life and died when 96 .
Forever Show Your love
Forever Show Your Love . Keep your arms around them . Never let them go . Love one another . As you have never loved before . You never know how long you have . To let your loved ones know . Just how much you care for them . So always let them know .
When you have feelings some things are not right . You act upon them . You don’t let it drop , and don’t cover up . You act upon them . You must never loose sight , when you think things are not right . You act upon them . Sometimes you are wrong and not always right , but never loose faith . Just act upon them . Go with your feelings even though you are wrong . It shows you are bothered . So just play along . Just Act upon your Feelings .
This Is Me
With my apple a day . I Just work and play . At doing the best that I can . I may not be has nimble . But I still keep things simple . By learning from all that I can . I can look in the mirror and know this is me . No heirs and graces is just what you see . My challenges numerous . My wrinkles my own . My words sometimes not rhyming . And my thoughts are my own . I’ve enjoyed every minute criticism and praise . And hopefully it will last forever .
