Here already..

Friday, such a good day to me.

Well that + love and true friends.

We’re more blessed than we realise.

Stop reaching for the stars far away. 

See whats already sitting on  your doorstep…


Step back..

Step back, step back my dear girl.
Step back into your own peace of mind.
Stay quiet & grounded and true to you.
Others will mock you with silence.
Others will be true with their praise.
It’s the silence that you will feel most.
Step back dear girl, step back.


Catherinewheels, scattering sparkles of ‘Ooh’ and ‘aww’ into the darkness.

Golden flashes of retinal burns scatter across ever childish eyes.

Can she remember the Catherinewheel when her hand was in mine I wonder.

A time when the darkness could not contain all the happiness that I knew.

Stripped bare of her company the wheel spins an endless tale of my broken heart.

The memories of her beauty and laughter forever reflected in my son’s innocent eyes.  

My darling Catherine, my eternal love.

I close my eyes and hear her quietly whisper to me.

‘I remember my love, I will always remember’ xx 

Dreams and wishes. .

My day is full of dreams and wishes
I wish for this and I dream of that
In between the mundane and routine
I lose myself to somewhere,  anywhere
To the things that make me happy
To the things that make me remember
I remember the smile you gave to me
I remember the love that came with you
The happiness we had on those lazy days
The life that seemed so simple, so free
All that crazy love you gave to me
I dream of those happy times
I wish you could come back, I miss you
Dreams and wishes..

Two words…

I find myself so sad & melancholy this day..
For today I got the news no one wants.
The news a lovely friend has had to bear.
Given 2 words that instantly change everything.
‘Brain tumour’ – such sickening, visual words.
Words that instil anger, fear and pain.
Anger that someone so lovely is gripped.
Fear at the thought of her battle ahead.
Pain in my heart for her & her family.
She gives out so much happiness to all.
She makes people laugh and smile each day.
It’s so hard to understand ‘why her?’
She has a husband/children/grandchildren.
There’s a battle like no other before her.
But she’s a fighter & I’ll shower her with healing.
Shine bright my lovely, funny, kind friend.
I am so much richer for having you in my life.
We’re all fighting with you and for you. xx

Tuesday or any day..

Me: ‘Hello again lovely Tuesday’.
Tues: ‘Hello Helen, my dear friend’.
Tues: ‘What do you want today?’
Me: ‘Well, I want to be happy Tuesday’.
Tues: ‘What would make you happy today?’
Me: ‘Hmm… big Question Tuesday!’

I stop and think of my choices.

Me: ‘I think I want happiness itself’
Tues: ‘But happiness surrounds you my friend.’
Me: ‘Then I think I want love Tuesday’.
Tues: ‘But you are very loved dear Helen’
Me: ‘ok, I shall ask for health dear friend’
Tues: ‘But you see/speak/hear/think/walk & laugh’.
Me: ‘I’m going to ask for peace then Tuesday!’
Tues: ‘You have peace inside your soul Helen.’
Me: ‘Thank you for I now know what I need’
Tues: ‘But you need nothing my dear friend’
Me: ‘Agreed, but I do need gratitude Tuesday’
Tues: ‘Yes my friend.’ x’:


In the blink of any eye you are reminded

Reminded of how very precious life is

That at any given moment it can and does change

Chatting with a friend and your reminder comes

Gently sleeping and your reminder comes

She often doesn’t let you know she’s knocking

But if you’re lucky she’ll give you an early nudge

She’ll give you a nudge so you get another chance

And when you get that chance life unfolds

Unfolds in bluer skies, greener grass, sweeter smells

You realise what’s important in your life

Your family, your friends & the simple beauty of life.

Naughty or nice…

Sometimes she’ll sooth my worries with her words.

Other times she’ll reveal a very naughty tale!

But she knows I’ll be there for her.

Whether she’s being naughty or nice!

Actually.. I quite like the naughty tales.

For they fill our lungs with laughter.

‘You didn’t’ I say? ‘Yes, I did’ she says!’

And then we roar even more…

But it’s that laughter that bonds our souls.

Keep surprising me my lovely friend!

For you feed my very soul with love and laughter!
