WHEN I SAY I LOVE YOU MORE

I don’t mean that I love you more than you love me. I mean, that I love you… More than all the obstacles life will put in front of us. More than the distance between us. More than the sum of the hardships we will bear. More than the lure of any other life. More

THE WISE OLD WOMAN

THE WISE OLD WOMAN I once met a wise old woman, whose face spoke of many hard years She was eager to part me her wisdom and her words surely moved me to tears. ‘Put it down’ she said with great passion ‘That load which you’re carrying there It was only supposed to be fleeting

He …is the ying to my yang, the sane to my mad and the mad to my sane. He …is the moon to my sun; we each have our turn to shine. He …is the spark to my match some days, the water to my fire on others. He …is often both the rock and

AFTER A WHILE

AFTER A WHILE You learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul And you learn love doesn’t mean leaning and company doesn’t always mean security. And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts and presents aren’t always promises and you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and

I’VE LEARNED…

I’ve learned…. That the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person. I’ve learned…. That when you’re in love, it shows. I’ve learned …. That just one person saying to me, ‘You’ve made my day!’ makes my day. I’ve learned…. That having a child fall asleep in your arms is

You Won’t Find My Worth In There…

Don’t define me by my size, You won’t find my worth in there. See no measure in my thighs, Or the colour of my hair. Don’t judge me on possessions, Or the holidays I take. Don’t wonder of my treasures, Or the money I may make. I’m a mixture of emotions, All rolled into a
