Sunday 8th December


Wondering and questioning

No answers to be found

Incredulity, uncertainty

Left me floundering around


The night you went to heaven

You made not a sound

As your little heart stopped

You found the angel’s playground


Precious boy

Darling son

Angel mine

Forever young



Strong winds blowing across Porthmeor Beach

An empty beach

Different journeys


Thursday 5th December


I know we have different journeys

And yours was cut way too short

You left this earth unexpectedly

Against cancer, you bravely fought


My own path meanders onwards

As I close the distance between us

I know exactly how it will end

And we’ll soon be rejoicing thus


My dearest darling

Precious Angel son

Love you forever

Forget you never



A clean swell on Porthmeor Beach

A few hardy surfers in the sea

Lost in thought


Wednesday 4th December


Lost in thought

My mind’s elsewhere

Not concentrating

Totally unaware


Your empty chair

Where you should be

It’s so unfair


Thinking of you

Missing you

Loving you

Forever and always

Precious Angel son


Harbour reflections and the Catholic Church

Porthmeor Beach this afternoon

Greying clouds over the harbour



Tuesday 3rd December


A sparkly Frankie

We decorated today

“You’ve gone overboard”

I know that’s what you’d say


Remembering you

With so much love

Darling Angel son

In heaven above



Clear and crisp this morning

Sunshine and shadows

Golden light in a corner of the harbour

Late afternoon and low tide in the harbour

Christmas late lunch


Sunday 1st December


On the first of December

A Christmas late lunch

Turkey and all the trimmings

With a great family bunch


Crackers and silly hats

Wine and hot mince pies

A splendid four course feast

Taste buds to tantalise


You did like your food, didn’t you?

With more of a sweet tooth, really

Pancakes were your favourite

Maple syrup poured freely


We do miss you poppet

Treasured Angel son

Love you to the moon and back

Now forever young



Looking down on the harbour this morning

Sunset this evening, through the trees

A crescent moon

Driving home
