Beneath the palms


Sunday 18th December

Finding shade beneath the palms

The sun glints off water in the pool

Quietly peaceful, a perfect afternoon

Ice cold drinks, trying to keep cool.


You’d jump in, splash about and swim

A cheeky grin spread across your face

Finding pleasure in simple things

I know you’re up there someplace.


So close to us, right by our sides 

At times, I think you’re still here

If I close my eyes and try real hard

On the next sunbed, you’ll appear.


And so, my splashing little Angel

Enjoy playing in the pools of heaven

Swimming underwater like a fish

The fun you have will never lessen.


Love you Angel

Dearest darling son.
