Your presence

Standard

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?

Standard

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

Standard

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

Lullaby

Standard

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

Remembering

Up on a cloud

You’re slumbering

  

Beloved Angel

Up there you fly

I’m whispering

A lullaby

Half term holidaymakers enjoying the beach

Upstairs

Standard

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

Standard

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

Grey skies over the harbour

One more minute

Standard

Saturday 21st October

    
To Frank
  
One more minute
Another hour
Just one day
Wish I had the power
 
One more minute
Another night
A little more time
I’d make it right
 
One more minute
Another chance
To hold you close
Your smile, I’d glance
 
One more minute
Another sunrise
A golden sunset
Please open your eyes
 
One more minute
To have you here
To make memories
I’d keep you near
  
One more minute
That’s all I need
To say “I love you”
Heartfelt indeed
  
One more minute
I’d say to you
“Never forgotten”
So precious, that’s true
  
One more minute
One more kiss
One more hug
Perfect bliss
  
One more minute
Those times we had
I’d say “Thank you”
My darling lad
 
One more minute
What I wouldn’t give
To have you back
So you can live
 
One more minute
To take it all in
Knowing that soon
Pain will begin
 
One more minute
But now you’re gone
And in my heart
You’ll live on
 
Love Mum

Storm Brian approaches the south west….

Horses

Standard

Friday 20th October

    

The calm before the storm

Horses enjoying the beach

Freedom to roll in the sand

You’d be there stroking each

Admiring their wild spirit

With hide as smooth as a peach

I imagined you on horseback

My Angel, just out of reach

   

Thinking of you sweetie

Love you to the moon and back

Beyond the stars, around the world

Two horses brought down to the beach to exercise and enjoy the fresh air


The wind whipping up the tops of the waves ahead of storm Brian

Love will linger

Standard

Thursday 19th October

    

Your love will linger

Your memories are real

Your affection touched many

My heartbreak I conceal

  

Your achievements numerous

Your delight enchanted

Your laugh infectious

I took it all for granted

  

And then one day

You had no more tomorrows

Your life ended so suddenly

Leaving‚Äč grief and sorrows

  

Missing my Angel

Darling son
