I wrote this prayer for my friend Wendy after her husband left her for another woman. She had suffered a long time with him taunting her about her faith and she was finally taken into a refuge for battered women. She came to stay with my family and I for 5 days during which time my daughter was getting baptised. The total immersion baptism so move Wendy that she asked me to write her something to place above her bed in the new home she was hoping to move to 3 weeks later. This is Wendy's prayer.
I bring myself to you, Lord And trust your loving care I never will give in, Lord You save me from despair
I take your gentle hand, Lord I know that you will lead Now give to me all things, Lord That I may daily need
So as I walk through life, Lord Beneath your loving eyes I ever will be glad, Lord For each new days surprise.
If nothing changes in my life In my contentment now I'm fine Not rich or young and on my own Life's journey so far had its blows I now accept all that I am And of my oddities am quite proud I strive no more for more and more The Jones rat race stops at my door My wanton maid days have now passed It's not just couples happiness I'm fortunate that in mid life Ive learned great lessons from the past Compassion and an open mind Is mine to travel forth in time For sure the journey will still hold Karmas lessons hot and cold But not alone again I'll be The greatest love I've found in me...
Webmaster:This deserves a wider audience among the contented red hat wearing, purple shawled women who have stopped teaching bulls to sing and are happy in their own skin. Perhaps you should submit it to Positives 4 Women
I found this little poem in a local newspaper. It was inserted on a page with baby photos sent in by proud parents to celebrate new births in their family for the year 2010. I think it is beautiful! It simply took my eye! Hope it is enjoyed by many readers.
How very often I have dreamed A world of perfect bliss To be the mother of a boy Or of a tiny miss. To hold its tiny hands in mine To count its tiny toes And when to place a tiny kiss Upon its tiny nose. To hold it very close to me Warm against my breast To gaze into its tiny face Sleeping and at rest. Oh, what would be more perfect Or what could hold more bliss, Than to be the mother of a boy Or of a tiny miss.
I've written loads of poems, some fun, some serious and deep. I've not really shared them outside of friends and family tho. I really appreciate some feedback. (Webmaster says Congratulations, Victoria, you're now a published poet)
Love me hate me, But don’t even slate me You may be right, But probably wrong Give me time And I’ll show you I’m strong
Watch out man don’t be pretentious You're so tight you're like an eighty year old's dentures Chill out, be cool Stop and feel the breeze Keep that frown You’ll permanently freeze
I wrote this to be included in memory candles that were sold to raise money for a hospice. It can be personalized for male or female.
Light a candle it helps to remind you Of your time together on earth And as the flame flickers, remember Her (his) kindness, her (his) goodness Her (his) worth In the glow of the memory candle You'll know that these memories can't die As you see her (his) face in the glowing, Say a prayer, shed a tear, then goodbye.
Somebody I care about very much lost his father suddenly and still stuggles to accept what has happened and has sadly shut me out of his life. Im holding onto the hope that this is temporary and have written this poem and sent it to him in the hope that someday soon he will be in contact again.
Take off the mask, embrace the dawn, His love's still there, it has not gone, Take off the mask and cry those tears, Share your pain, share your fears, Take off the mask just let it be, Mourn your loss and set it free, Take off the mask, the day must end, But know I'm here, I am your friend.
as you go on in life remember ur past only the good but never the bad your heart was mended. and broke again. you kissed who u loved but left by them. you held ur amazing they slipped away you remember that time when things weren't fine you thought you were loosing them when they were rite there. you were scared and wanted to leave you gave up in love, it was hard to believe. you made wrong choices regretted a few things. looked at your self saying what's wrong with me. see don't blame yourself you're a wonderful person. it's her fault she's not there whenever you need her. but then it popped in ur mind that special moment in space. where both of you were alone enclosed in a space. staring at each other. looking in her eyes. thinking "i love you" but never telling it to her face. although you think you'll never get her never give up. there's still some more laughter. you deserve better. so to my friend (E*****) you're the coolest guy i know don't waste ur time liking that one. there are more to see. it's hard to get over someone i know that for sure. but if u realize all the pain. all the hurt that they cost you. u know that shes not the one for you. so, as you go on in life remember your past. only the good but never the bad. your heart was broken. it could be mended again. you're gonna kiss who you love and never left by them. you’re gonna hold your amazing and they’ll hold you back. but when you look at her its not going to be (C****). it may be someone else. but (E*****) you're the best. through the good and the bad.
This poem is the time I felt myself leaving my wife. It was over a period of a couple of months. I started to shut myself off from her. I knew the pain I was causing her but felt no remorse at the time. I slowing realised the grass wasn't greener and asked for forgiveness.
You watched me slip slowly away. I remember my feelings that very day Feeling my hand slip through yours Turning away, not letting you have a say.
You watched me build that lonely wall I can remember standing so very small Feeling my heart turn so cold Turning away, I'd do nothing but fall.
You watched me hide and withdraw I can remember closing that very door Feeling confusion build up inside Turning away, why would I want more?
I watched you cry in my mind You remember my love being so kind Feeling lonely without you here Turning to you....I've been so blind.
Distracted The Mother Said To Her Boy by Gregory Harrison
Distracted the mother said to her boy 'Do you try to upset and perplex and annoy Now give me four reasons-and don't play the fool- Why you shouldn't get up and get ready for school'
Her son replied slowly, 'Well mother, you see, I can't stand the teachers and they detest me, And there isn't a boy or girl in the place That I like or, in turn, that delights in my face'
'And I'll give you two reasons,' she said, 'why you ought Get yourself off to school before you get caught; Because, first, you are forty, and, next, you young fool It's your job to be there. You're the head of the school
Perhaps this ought to be in the category of 'Short Poems for Headmasters'
Why God? Why are you doing this to me? Why are you bringing me so much misery? Why are you makin my life more a living hell for me? Haven't you done enough to me? You broke my family apart!you made my mom not love me So she went her own way and started a new family With a guy I never met now he is my step dad!! But I dont even know where my mom is now! I dont know if she is safe or happy! You made my dad not love me or care for me! Because he has his own family! You left me with my aunt, my dad's sister Who doesn't even give a damn about me And wont let me see my dad and other siblings!! Why are you giving me so much more pain? Sometimes I feel like my life is going down the drain Because I just don't care I give up on dealing with all the drama I just wish i could have my family back together And things would turn out OK But this is reality and wishes and dreams don't come true!!
