Thursday 26th November


Suddenly, something hits so hard

You return to that day

With the pain and heartache

Coming right back to stay


And I miss you so

Dearest Angel son

Thinking of you always

Now forever young



A chilly and bright Porthmeor Beach

No one in the sea this afternoon

A good swell

A keen wind chills your ears and cheeks

A mackerel sky

That dappled all the way up the coast



Friday 20th November


A slow, subdued movement

Towards peace and calmness

Despite the suffocating

Journeying into darkness


Smiling towards the heavens

Kisses filled with fondness

Up there in the wild blue yonder

There’s so much love between us


Missing my angel

Precious son


Kisses in the sky

The buoy laying ship, Patricia in the bay today

Learning to live


Wednesday 18th November


Just learning to live

Without you here

The same each morning

Your voice, I can’t hear

No outings or plans

All dreams disappear

But my love for you

Keeps your memories dear


Thinking of you poppet

Beloved Angel son


Porthmeor Beach, late afternoon

Lots of rock and stones appearing after the storms and high tides

Harbour cloud reflections

Fading light

The road ahead


Monday 16th November


The road ahead isn’t straight

And nor is it brightly lit

It twists and turns unevenly

Stumbling when those memories hit


Sometimes the path leads to a beach

With the brightest, sparkling sea

Golden sand, soft underfoot

And palm trees waving invitingly


At times, unexpectedly

A cold, dark tunnel is your route

Your head slides in a tailspin

The pain of loss, just so acute


And I miss you so

Dearest Angel son
