    Hello everyone, I hope you are all keeping well.
    I hope you don't mind but I wanted to share my poems with you. When I'm having "one of my moments" which is quite often at the moment having just lost Mum I say these poems in my head & they have become like little personal prayers to my mum & dad which somehow makes me feel a bit better.

    My Darling Mum
    While you were sleeping
    The Angels came
    And gently took your hand
    They saw you had been struggling with
    Things you no longer understand.

    God had a place in Heaven
    For an Angel just like you
    And Dad was there with open arms
    He was welcoming you too

    I never wanted to loose you mum
    But I could see that it was time
    So I’ll hold you tight in my broken heart
    Forever you will be mine

    I love you mum and I miss you so
    But it’s your turn now to play
    With Angels up in Heaven
    Until we meet again one day

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    God gave me a Father & Dad that wonderful man was you
    But He forgot to mention that one day He would need you too
    I don't know how to heal this terrible pain I have now in my heart
    But with treasured memories of you darling dad
    We will never really be apart
    I know you watch over me while I am sleeping
    I feel you near me every day
    But this forever longing to see you again
    Will never go away

    Lyn
