With you


Tuesday 27th June


With you, went so much of me.      

Love you to the moon and back, beyond the stars, and all the world……

My sweetest, darling Angel son 

Your sunflowers, so full of pollen

Beautiful bright yellow

Not yet ready to bloom

Heavy, grey clouds

Low tide

A few, brief moments


Monday 26th June


For a few brief moments

All seems fine. All is well.

A few laughs here and there

Mixed with stories to tell.


Then quite unexpectedly

Brick wall. Face plant. Body slam.

Out of nowhere, all change

Anxiety. Grief…..Wham.


Sinking in a thick fog

Pity party just for one

The misery’s set in

Positivity’s undone.


A voice, a sound, a glance

Something rattles my heart

Realisation of absence

We are just so far apart.


But looking up to the sky

I know you’re flying free

And if I close my eyes

You’re there, right next to me.


Sleep tight sweetheart

Precious Angel son





Saturday 24th June


Boats in the harbour

All rocking gently

Sunshine reflections

Twinkling a’plenty


Competitors run

Then swim to shore

Annual Biathlon

Takes a hour or more


Twenty years ago

Your brother took part

A surf life saver

Super strong and smart


You would like to watch

The swimmers return

And joining in with

The applause they’d earn


Wish you’d been here this evening sweetie

Missing you

Love you


Late evening sunshine

Swimmers must negotiate all the boats to reach the slip

Harbour panorama

Groups of swimmers entering the harbour



Friday 23rd June


Wispy clouds stretch across the sky

Ethereal qualities floating by

Seemingly apart from the real world

White cirrus, though transient curled


My darling little Angel

Flying beyond the clouds

Up there in the beautiful blue

I’m always, always missing you.


Your beautiful yellow sunflower

A big blue sky

Waves of clouds overhead
Man’s Head

Big clouds looming over the harbour

Harbour panorama



Thursday 22nd June


Sending sparkles to light the dark

Imparting love to keep you warm

Blowing many kisses to heaven

With Angels to calm the storm


Missing you sweetie

As always

Precious Angel son


Sunflowers growing for you

You wanted to grow the ‘biggest sunflower in the world”

They remind me so much of you

High tide in the harbour

Cooler today

Not as many people on the beach

I close my eyes


Wednesday 21st June


When the heat haze rolls in

Or sea mist covers the land

I close my eyes, think of you

As if I’m holding your hand.

When the clouds clear the sky

And the day’s heat is gone

I close my eyes, think of you

Those memories linger on.

When the stars twinkle bright

And the moon’s in full glow

I close my eyes, think of you

Kisses to heaven I blow.


Love you forever

Beloved Angel son


Heat haze/sea mist enveloping the Island this afternoon

A fog bank on the horizon

Light and love


Tuesday 20th June


Your light and love

Will always shine

Deep in my heart

Angel of mine.


Miss you sweetheart

Love you forever

Darling Angel son


Hot and hazy at the beach

Holidaymakers enjoying the sunshine

Harbour at high tide ~ not much beach left

Quite surprised


Monday 19th June


Was quite surprised today

When we went to visit Nan

Sitting up at the table

Smiling, as only she can.

Still in a bit of pain

But up, and out of her bed

Enjoying curry and rice

I helped her as she fed.

Wish you were here to see

Your Nan’s recuperation

With cuddles and kisses

You’d show your adoration.


Missing you like crazy

My darling Angel baby


Another beautiful day 

Hazy clouds above the harbour

Missing you on this sunny day


Sunday 18th June


Missing you on this sunny day

Pack a picnic, go out and play.

Down to the beach, toes in the sand

Running​ to the sea, hand in hand.

Fizzy drinks and eating ice cream

Wearing hats, applying sunscreen.

Finding shade and reading a book

With smiling eyes, a knowing look.

My little beach baby Angel

Dancing over waves, so graceful.


Love you sweetheart

Such a beautiful blue sky day

Warm and sunny in the harbour too
