Mothers Day Prayer

Poem By Shirley.R. Simpkin

I miss you little Sweetheart, more than words can say,
You're in my thoughts and in my heart, every single day.
Pretty cards with roses red, all merging into one;
I cannot open them to read the words; all I see is 'Mum'.

I'm thinking back through all the years, the family gathered round,
Baskets filled with flowers, and laughter the only sound.
Now you are in Heaven, with a beautiful garden there;
I know you will be listening, and that you'll hear my Prayer.

God Bless

Precious Memories

Tired eyes brimming over with scalding hot tears;
I flick through the pages of pictures in my mind.

The High Woods

Sharing in your memories of the childhood you knew,
You descibed all your family, and the farm where you grew.
Your days work was hard, but with laughter and fun
As Granny cracked up on the 'whip, your Dad out with his gun.


You packed your bags annd trundelled, over the hills and far away;
Seeking adventures new, like children playing in fresh mown hay.
Climb up another mountain, follow another stream,
Create your fun and laughter until you find your dream.

Your Perfect Gift

You gave us life, your perfect gift
Memories of our childhood, happily we sift.
Lovingly, looking at your photograph,
Trace the contours of your face, your laugh.

Families In Mourning-Comrades Wear Shrouds

Enslaved, torn from their families and the normal walks of life;
Nobody had forseen the deprivation, hunger, terror and the strife.
Brothers, Sons, Husbands exchanging uniforms for shrouds.
Families now are mourning - shattered dreams, once silver lined clouds.
