This World For Your Own – a poem about…….

Oh sweet child of mine, Take this world for your own, Fear nothing at all, Please continue to shine. So small but not weak, I will help you grow, Allow you to learn, Give the knowledge you seek. You are free of fear, Absorb everything you can, Embracing our hearts, I will always be near. …

This Most Wondrous of all Spirits – a poem about………..

When The Medicine Runs Out – a poem about………

I try to stay together and let the good times in, But it's hard to resist when the greyness is already within. Tears line a face that's already scarred, Then nothing can penetrate this heart that's so hard. Colours from life gradually fade into a negative, Forcing me to question what it is I have …
