On Reflection

Poem By Jane Sparkes

Looking at me strangely,
Every time I look at you
I wonder where you go to
When I've something else to do

We pass each other daily
Many times unnoticed
Going about our business
On other things are focused

Dear friend you reassure me.
When looking in your eyes,
I know you so very well,
For me there's no suprise

The years are showing in your face
The wisdom and knowing smile
Be good to yourself, dear heart you see
We're only here for a while

Together we will always be
Side by side or faced
I'll keep smiling at you
As you'll always be in your place

Never to be parted,
While with my eyes I see
For you will always show me
The best and worst of thee

The longer I am
The more I know
The less I know
Was what I thought

If You Look After Me

If you look after me
I’ll be a good companion
I will stand in a stable and look forward to the food you bring
I will ignore my urge to wander, to roam

End It Now

If I end it now, before its dead
He'll remember it fondly
To herself, she said.

Stranger Passing Through

See you stranger with your eyes that measure, take notes and absorb my reality.
A strange place discovered, call it middle ground or no-mans land.
Funny that where no man treads a woman is safe but unaffected, no woman wants this anonymity, this vacuum.
So onwards into new regions we wander.

Suddenly Single

Rolling down my cheeks the tears
Shoulders shaking, the pain sears
Burning heart with hurt and fear
Anguish reigns now you're not near.

The Sting In Your Tail

Fly with me said the honey bee
Hour by hour set your heart free
Feel our love, trust our harmony,
The futures bright for you and me
