Broken Hearts On Valentine's

Poem By Jojoba Mansell

If your world is full of roses,
awash in chocolates sweet.
Spare a thought for those alone,
no loved ones there to treat.

The ones who sit alone and sob,
as lovers stroll hand in hand.
They stare doe eyed as lovers pass,
their own love-life not so grand.

While your dreams are all around,
you float, walking on air.
Spare a thought for broken hearts,
on Valentine's, show you care.

The Sunshine Within

On bleak days, with leaden skies,
when you don't know where to begin.
Your head hurts and your heart cries,
look for the sunshine within.


Alone in thought,
she sits and ponders.
Where are my friends?
Her mind wonders.

Our First Home

It will not be a palace,
nor will it be a shed.
It will be ours alone,
our kingdom, when we wed.

A Special Love

I could live this time forever,
make seconds last like days.
I could spend eternity on your lips,
lose myself in your gaze.

Take Action

You're appalled by the riots,
the homeless break your heart.
But what examples do your actions set?
Have you tried to make a start?

Compared To You

Fairground rides and joyful laughter,
toffee apples and chocolate sweet.
These are things that pale in comparison,
to our love, whene'er we meet.
