'You'Re In My Heart'

Poem By Sadia Maqsood

My poems start with a rush of emotion.
I quickly drink it in like a potion.
I throw some words around in my head 
While on the nursery run or lying in bed.
For this feeling I have been waiting so long,
For all those years I was getting it wrong.
For all this time I've been writing fruitless prose,  
And nothing seemed to come to a close.
What I'd forgotten was that when I was at school
Some of my poems were actually quite cool. 
Then one day soon after I had my first son,  
I read a friend's father"s poem and thought  'I could write one! "
And in a few days the poem was written,  
But still by the bug I had not yet been bitten.
That poem didn't see the light of day 
Until my son's fourth birthday.
Encouraged by comments I decided to write more,  
And at last this genre I started to explore. 
And now it seems I have found a new voice. 
And finally I have made the right choice 
I am not an author I am a poet 
And now at last I finally know it!

Late every night,
In every house, in every street,
With children still in bed,
There`s little Ben, Nell an Joe,

When emotions are uncontrollable
And the feelings strong
When the heart cant bear
This burden too long

My Shadow

When I walk along the empty paths,
Alone under the pale moonlight,
In the silence and darkness of the night,
And no one nearby is in sight,
