I Know You By Heart.

I Know You By Heart.

In a World that you see with darkened view,
You believe that nobody will see you,
Hidden beneath a cloak of Angry fear,
Distanced from anyone who treads near.

There’s no need to hold that view,
For You are Loved as You are You,
This World holds such Joy and Delight,
Open your eyes to see that Sight.

How do I know ?, you might say,
Because.. that was me, one day,
You see, I Know You By Heart,
And you deserve a new start.

Rise above the Angry phase,
Lift your head and raise,
Above and beyond what you feel,
Dispel it all, and gently heal.

Life is so visually perceived,
Yet different to what’s believed,
Love yourself above all,
You can rise..out of fall.

One word is all it takes,
And the difference it makes,
“Help Me” to change and see,
What’s inside of Me.

Believe me, I Know You By Heart,
In a World of which you’re a part,
Not to be Hidden or Ignored,
Inside a Heart so deeply stored.

Let the World in to share,
And let them know you’re there,
You’re Alive, so let the World care,
Celebrate Life and add your share.

I Know You By Heart.

Touched By The Hand Of Cancer…for Cancer UK.

Touched By The Hand Of Cancer.

The words came all in a blur,
“Cancer”, it did occur,
Images of a lost cause,
Made us icily pause.

Day One arrived after the news,
Mum voiced her once only views,
I have Cancer, but it doesn’t have ME,
I’ll fight it, just wait and see.

Many phone calls for people to see,
To let them guide and educate me,
Mum wanted to live, and not to die,
Touched by the Hand of Cancer, we sigh.

The Battle was on, and the Swords raised High,
Mum Lived, while we arranged the “tools” not to die,
We Loved, We Laughed, We Played and We Cried,
Cancer was gone, it had Died.

You see, really, Cancer was there all along,
But it wasn’t the words of Mum’s song,
She chose to Live her Life,
As A Mother, A Grandmother, and A Wife.

It’s Denial, the Doctors did say,
“Oh No!” I said fiercely, It’s her way,
You see Cancer never took her Spirit, or her Soul,
It’s what made her completely whole.

She left the Reality to whom she did Love,
And left her Fate to her Loving Parents up Above,
She knew that they would call when it was right,
To relinquish, to end the Cancer’s fight.

The Best Six Months, and the Worst,
Yet we were truly Blessed, and not Cursed,
For we all got to Live A Wondrous Blessing,
With Mum, and Without Cancer’s Messing.

When the time came, her Dad did call,
We didn’t Rise, but certainly did fall,
And yet we count our Endless Blessings In Life,
For Lending such a Beautiful Grandmother, Mother and a Wife.

For anyone Touched By The Hand Of Cancer, they know that Cancer may fight their body, but it will NEVER Conquer their Heart and Soul. In Loving Memory of those who Lived whilst Touched by the Hand Of Cancer; and In Respect of those Living and Fighting. Love Gill x

Spring Shadows.

Spring Shadows.

Amongst the hallowed Earth,
Spring Shadows begin to birth,
Tiny shoots awaken with the rain,
The Spring is coming again.

The snowdrops call upon their friends,
To climb, and unravel their wiggly bends,
Tiny blossoms awaiting the daytime sun,
Whose warmth announces Spring has begun.

New leaves so crisp and green,
Amidst the brown of Winter’s scene,
Primroses of yellow shade,
Creations beautifully made.

Spring Shadows will soon lift,
And enlighten the Spring’s Gift,
Of blooms, with colourful array,
Flowering until the days of May.

Spring is welcome with her early dew,
Awakening the Hearts of me and you,
Raising Heavenly Smiles,
Across Flowered Golden Miles.

The Blessing of Spring Shadows has Arrived.

Children Lost.

Children Lost.

In those times of the darkest deep,
Let thy Heart whisper a peep,
In thy Head remove its call,
It’ll lead you to the fall.

In those times of the darkest deep,
Look within to release the weep,
Be known by thine Heart,
Then life will truly start.

For you are the Children Lost,
Coated with an outer frost,
Locked within a darkened World,
Show thy Heart, be uncurled.

For you are the Children Lost,
Your Heart will crack the frost,
To release those feelings hidden inside,
Show thy Heart, it will not be denied.

When the frost begins to melt,
You’ll touch all that should be felt,
The warmth, and the Peace of Joy,
Deserved by every girl and boy.

When the frost begins to melt,
You’ll remove the life that’s been dealt,
The darkened days will turn to light,
You’ll see the World, and its delight.

For you are NOT the Children Lost,
Forever encased in an icy frost,
You are the Love and the Joy,
Felt by every girl and boy.

For you are NOT the Children Lost,
You just created the icy frost,
To protect your Heart,
A life denied from the start.

You are the Children Found,
With two feet firmly on the ground,
Loved, even in an empty surround,
You are the Children Found.

In Love and Respect of All the Children Lost who need to find their way. Love Gill x



She walked as a tiny tot with little feet,
Gentle, smiling, and ever so sweet,
She grew with flair and grace,
Rosy lips adorned her face.

She ran as a teenager with adult feet,
Still gentle, smiling, and far too sweet,
She grew with rushed adolescent dreams,
Embracing a body fraught with screams.

She walked as a woman with “borrowed” feet,
Gracious, smiling, and accordingly sweet,
She arrived with maturity’s head,
Denying a mind so easily led.

She walked as a woman with adult feet,
Graceful, smiling, and honestly sweet,
She was full grown with a gentle heart,
Embracing a body of which she was part.

She had Evolved…



Here comes the day, so start with a smile,
As the sun is dawning, her rays are ready to beguile,
The daisies standing with their proud white petals, and yellowed middle,
The wild whispering grasses whistling to the sound of a fiddle,
The trees of old, with leaves of green,
Edging the earth neatly,completing the scene,
Of a Summer’s day, greeted with a picnic spread,
A tartan blanket neatly placed upon the grass bed,
Salads, fruits, and cheese galore,
Many foods to gladly adore,
Freshly baked bread,and butter twirls,
Scones with strawberry jam, and creamy swirls,
Washed down nicely with rose wine,
What a lovely way to dine,
The beauty of the Earth beneath our toes,
Heavenly, just Divine, as everyone knows,
The day is no longer and at its end,
So now it’s time for the Smile to send,
Its love to the Moonlit night,
With its stars shining bright,
Smile it’s Summer.

Mummy – “What Is Different ?”

Mummy, “What is Different ?” you say,
My reply “It’s a word used today!”,
To be different is not a sin,
There’s plenty of room for “different” to live in.

There’s the air we breathe and share,
There’s the Love we share and care,
There’s the food we grow and eat,
There’s the Earth beneath our feet.

Mummy, ” I don’t know what it means” you say,
My reply, “It means the same with a twist today”,
Being different is a change to embrace,
It’s a Love to share, not to disgrace.

There’s the Culture with a language new,
Learning new words for me and you,
There’s the taste upon the food,
To be savoured and chewed.

Mummy, “Can I be different ?” you say,
“Yes” I reply, “You can start today”,
Love Life, People and the colours of the rainbow,
And you’ll be different and free to know.

To be Different is to embrace all that is on the Earth,
It is the Joy of watching everything that’s new from food to Birth,
It is the Love of your fellow man and to share what you both do,
To be Different is to Love and to be Loved too.

Mummy, “I love to be different” you say,
I reply, “Son, you make my day”,
“You are my Rainbow and my Earth”,
“Forever more,and as always, from the day of your Birth”.

For the Love of Our “Different” . To Love, To Share, To Care and To Be Loved for All On Earth.
