Tuesday 31st October


Singing with the angels

Playing catch with stars

Pillow fights with clouds

And flying around Mars


Sprinkling golden sunbeams

Jumping over shadows

Gliding in the wind

And sliding down rainbows


Missing you

My fun-loving Angel

Cherished son


Panorama of West Porthmeor Beach

Seagull surveying his territory

Porthmeor Beach and the Island

So still in the harbour

Boats in the bay


Monday 30th October


I seem to be missing you a lot today

Thinking of you each step of the way

Wishing that you’d been able to stay

I look out at all the boats in the bay

The warm sun chases away the grey

But in the end, and come what may

I’ll never, ever forget to say

In my heart is where you’ll stay


My dearest darling Angel son


Gentle waves on Porthmeor Beach

High tide in the harbour

Cloudier towards Hayle



Sunday 29th October


Wrapped in soft and silky Angel wings

Protected​ from harm and other bad things

My sweet Angel son lives there on high

I sigh and smile as I look to the sky

I have to believe that’s where you are

By day in the clouds, at night a star

Fluffy and white, or twinkling so bright

There in my heart, even if out of sight


Love you poppet

So very much


Grey and cloudy, but still a few in the sea

Last day of the half-term​ holidays, and final day for lifeguard cover on the beach

One last paddle…..

Your presence


Saturday 28th October


Your presence is here, it’s all around

In every room, on the empty chair

In each outing, in the back of the car

Although I know you’re now elsewhere


In every single minute of each day

In the calm silence, in the loud roar

You’re in my head, in my dreams

Know that I’ll love you forever more


My sweetheart 

My darling

My Angel

My son


Grey and dull this morning

Where would you be?


Friday 27th October


A sunny Friday

Where would you be?

Walking on the sand

With shoes in the sea

Running and jumping

Waves can’t catch me

Loving the fresh air

So young and carefree

My darling Angel

So precious is he


The sunshine is bringing out the holidaymakers

So many playing in the sea

Sunny harbour at low tide

A bank of clouds in the distance

Stumble along


Thursday 26th October


As I blindly stumble along

The twisting road of grief

No directions along the way

To give me some relief

Each route leads off at a tangent

Like none encountered before

Further and further away

Til you lose sight of the shore


Each track is so individual

A lonely walk of heartbreak

Once on, you can’t step off

With memories just keepsake


The journey seems neverending

But I know I’ll see you again

For now you’re gently enfolded

Safe in my heart until then


My darling Angel son





Wednesday 25th October


My precious son

I’m missing you

There is nothing

That I can do


My sweetheart child

So far away

I think of you

Each night and day


My darling boy

Love you so much

I really wish

Our hands could touch


Treasured lad


Up on a cloud

You’re slumbering


Beloved Angel

Up there you fly

I’m whispering

A lullaby



Half term holidaymakers enjoying the beach



Monday 23rd October


When I came upstairs that evening

It was to kiss you goodnight

To tuck you in, smooth the covers

And then turn out the light


But when I came upstairs that evening

Just how little did I know

It would be to kiss you goodbye

And then I had to let you go


My darling

My son

My Angel


Dark skies over Hayle

Nowhere to be found


Sunday 22nd October


You can’t see a broken heart

You can’t hear a silent scream

You can’t dry hidden tears

You can’t soothe a painful dream


But they’re always there

A perpetual flow of reminders

Coursing through our lives

Leaving us to be survivors


For every single moment

You are everywhere around

In my heart, in my head

When I am nowhere to be found

Love you so much my Angel

My precious son
