Poem By Cecilia Parkin

My mind some days
Recalls it all
That once you were here
And then - no more.!
How many ways
Can you be missed? ,
You who once I'd softly kissed-
As I held you nestled in my arms
Warm and soft and full of charm.

Your gentle tap when attention you'd seek
Soft fan of breath against my cheek,
Rhythmic hum as on my lap,
You listened, and then answered back.

Your playfullness and sense of fun,
The haughty look at my rebuff.
Ever faithful - nothing held back.
Was how I knew you - Thomas my cat.

To Love

I know myself and who and what I am.
Shaped and fashioned at birth - by those before,
And after, as life's encounters and experiences were
- Before you.

A Friend.

You gave me words - when I had no words.
You gave me a song - when I had no songs.
You gave me a smile - when I had no smiles.
You gave me hope - when I had no hope.

His Life For Our Life.

I keep the Cross before my eyes
And know the sacrifice He made.
His life for mine, His life for ALL
Is what his dieing did that day.

Looking For You

I look for you everywhere
My mind tells me your there - somewhere
'Cause when I close my eyes to sleep
Your there, as large as life to me


'How do you measure life's success
How do you see it my friend?
The high powered job-and with it esteem,
The gloss and the glitter, the trappings well seen.


The crows swing silently
On the telephone wires
Like a row of mourners
Blackly attired.
