I wrote the following poem for someone who recently passed away, he was a lovely old gentleman and although I only knew him for a short time, he had touched my heart!
I lit a candle for you to help you find your way,
I watched the flame and thought of you and shed a tear that day,
It was a pleasure knowing you although it wasn’t for long,
You touched my heart all the same and I’m saddened that you’re gone,
I hope that you will be at peace and find the loved ones from your past,
I’m sure that they’d be waiting to reunite with you at last,
So stretch out your angel wings it’s time for you to fly,
I’ll always have a thought for you but today I say goodbye.
I wrote this for two angels that I have in my life, two amazing people who have seen me though some really tough times!
You are my shining light when darkness falls,
You are my comfort when sadness calls,
You are my strength in times of need,
When I am lost I follow your lead,
You are my angel a true god send,
I am so honoured to call you my friend.

One of life’s true blessing is friendship!
A majority of people can count the number of their true friends on one hand and I am no different, we all have a circle of people that we know and enjoy spending time with but there are usually only a few people in that circle that know you inside out, I’m talking from your darkest secrets to your biggest accomplishments, your failures, your heart breaks and your joys, the ones that you can really just be yourself with, the ones that pick you up off the floor when life knocks you down and the ones that are there to help you celebrate when life is good! But how do these friendships grow, what is the key ingredient to a successful friendship? Continue reading “Friends! The family you choose for yourself!”
