50 Years

Poem By Sian Mein

50 years ago to this very day
So much in this poem that I could say
But where to start? I just don't know where
I guess thank you for always being there
Through the good times and the bad
Especially the times we've driven you mad
And I know you're miffed I wrote this in my English book
But how else could I write it without you trying to look?
I know we joke that 50 is old
But it's what we've grown up with, what we've been told.

So here we are another year on
Yet again we sing the Birthday song
Thank you for being patient and sharing your time
Whilst I read out this stupid rhyme
But yeah.. Back to the point at hand
You're still looking so pretty and very grand
We all love you and want to show this to you
For all your help in past years with things you do
So now to show you how much we care,
With so many hugs and love to share.

I think I should go before we start to lose it
So here it comes the final bit
Please raise your glass to raise a toast.
To...... on your 50th- a day to remember the most.

From a short distance,
I look upon your beautiful face.
You notice and smile
With the most humbling grace.

In My Mind I Hold A Picture

In my mind I hold a picture
Of how we used to be
For everything you needed
You could turn to me.

Lord Of The Flies

The boys are in pain,
On an island with no where to hide
A gaping hole in society
One is killed with a powerful blow

When I Was In Tears

You have been my friend for a very long time,
I asked you to bend and you made a rhyme,
When I needed you, you were always there
When I was in tears, you would say its not fair,


You make me smile
When I'm having a bad day
You make me laugh
At everything you say.

More Than A Year Ago

The very first day
More than a year ago
When our eyes first met
I'll never let go.
