And today there was snow


Wednesday 28th February


And today there was snow

You would have loved it, I know

A snowball to throw

Pink cheeks all aglow

Feels like fifteen below

Turning into an Eskimo

Arctic winds blow


Wish you had been here today to play and make a snowman.

My darling Snow Angel

Love you forever


Going to see you this morning

Snow covered palm fronds

A blizzard blows

Your flowers are snowed under

Later on this afternoon, the sun came out

Towards Man’s Head

Like a lunar landscape

The putting green

No one eating alfresco

Snow covered beach

Beautiful, but so cold

Lambeth Walk

Who dares, runs

Looking down towards the Island, choppy seas beyond



Tuesday 27th February


Cerulean Blue

The perfect colour for the sky

Deep Blue

The hurt within my heart does occupy

Beautiful Blue

Your sparkling eyes to glorify

Moody Blue

The low demeanour is drawing nigh

Out of the Blue

Memories and love amplify

Icy Blue

The cold tears falling from my eye

Translucent Blue

Your Angel wings to fly


Love you sweetie

Moon and back



Blue skies through the trees

Beautiful Blue seas

Blues at the beach

Harbour Blues

Turnstones on the harbour wall

Curious little sea birds



Monday 26th February


Although you’re no longer

Where you were before

I know you’re still with me

And I love you all the more

Gone from my sight

Your memories I care for

Remembering you daily

On Angel wings you soar


My darling Angel son


The branches of the tree near your resting place

Sideways waves across Porthmeor Beach

Steely grey skies…. but no snow yet…..

So very hard


Sunday 25th February


Tripping over brambles and undergrowth

Blindly stumbling in the dark

Squelching through treacly mud

Grief certainly isn’t a walk in the park


You had so much to give and share

You filled our lives with plenty of joy

And now that you are no longer here

We love from afar, dear Angel boy


Our broken hearts continue to beat

But each pulse send a piercing shard

Of the most intensely, crushing pain

Living with the pieces is so very hard


Missing you sweetheart

Love you forever


Becoming colder in St. Ives

More than words


Saturday 24th February


You may no longer breathe

But your presence is tangible

You’ll never leave my side

Just because you’re invisible


Sometimes the pain’s too much

So wish that you were here

Gazing at your photographs

Is a way to feel you near


Listening to your favourite songs

I smile when I recall

Your singing and a-shaking

Loudly giving it your all


Miss you more, not miss you less

At the dawn of each new day

Realising that you’ve gone

Love you more than words can say


Forever thirty

Taken too early

Angel son

Forever young



A chilly, but bright morning



Thursday 22nd February


Piles, polyps or poop

That’s what they’re looking for

Results from the PET scan

Required a bit more

Exploratory time

Left me a bit sore

Uncomfortable really

But you know the score

Better safe than sorry

Something you can’t ignore

A sigmoidoscopy

Balance to restore

Then a polypectomy

Soon to endure

So come back again

Eradicate the tumour

Another appointment

In the near future


Thinking of you as always

My darling Angel son


Sunrise over the sea

The sky when we visited you this morning

Driving up to Exeter

Years and years and years


Wednesday 21st February


I really didn’t want

To live the rest of my life

Without you here with me

Nothing but pain and strife


Now I will always wake up

Each and every single day

Only to remember

You won’t be here today


I know that each of us

Has different journeys to walk

Paths meander and cross

But no longer to you I talk


My beloved Angel

As I wipe away the tears

Your memories will remain

For years and years and years


Dearest darling son


Sunny Porthmeor Beach at low tide

Close by


Tuesday 20th February


I know you’re close by

Just wish I could see you

I do feel your presence

It helps me get through


Those precious moments

Will never undo

The love in my heart

That’s perfect and true


Love you forever

To the moon and back

All the stars in the sky

To infinity and beyond

My treasured Angel son


Another blue sky morning, looking over the town



Monday 19th February


My undying love for you

Extends from this life to the next

It will never diminish

It is just so complex


It won’t really get better

You just handle the effects

Of everything being different

Each day continues to perplex


My heart now beats for you

And the tears in my eye reflects

All those memories returning

That subconsciousness connects


Love you sweetheart

Beloved Angel son


A criss cross of branches, and blue sky this morning

Low tide, but not too many walking on the beach
