LAST SUNDAY IN SEPTEMBER:

LAST SUNDAY IN SEPTEMBER:
My! this is the last Sunday in September,
Where has the month gone?.
I took an early morning stroll along the beach,
Humming a happy song.

As I walked along the sea edge.
My troubles going with the ebbing tide.
The sun just awakening in the sky.
Happily following by my side.

It's lovely here in the early morn.
The soft breeze caressing my face.
Feels good to be alive,
Part of the human race.

Today I hope to do some relaxing,
Listening to my relaxation CDs.
It helps put life into perspective.
Instead of falling on one's knees.

I wish you all Happy Sunday,
Whatever you may do.
You can be sure of one thing friends,
I will be thinking of you.

MY FRIENDS:

 MY FRIENDS:
As I've wandered down the street,
The neighbourhood cats have gone.
The ones who throughout the summer,
Have given me tremendous fun.

I would stroke and "Speak" to them,
As they would come to me.
Even pick one up now and then,
For all the world to see.

As it's getting progressively colder,
They are staying indoors.
I miss them without question,
When winter arrives.....even more.

My mind fleetingly went back.
When I had a wonderful cat
 

Tabitha was her name.
And a great comfort to me she was that.
 
Although she was diabetic,
Each day needed two insulin shots.
After my hubby passed away she was there,
"Loving" me, that I've never forgot.
 
So as my friends are staying indoors,
I look forward to the spring.
When once again their appearances,
Happiness will bring.

THE WEEK-END ALMOST HERE:

THE WEEKEND ALMOST HERE:
Just like this groovy cat,
I'm looking forward to the week-end.
Weather permitting I'll be out,
Having some money to spend.

I love to go to the market,
One gets to meet people there.
Just for a few hours looking around,
Out of the window fly all one's cares.

Relaxation is another key point,
As the week-end progresses.
Listening to music of one's choice.
My favourite? I'll give you three guesses.

Hopefully all my chores will be complete,
Some reading will also take place.
Also I love to watch "X Factor" on TV.
That sure puts a smile upon my face.

I hope your week-end is all you hope,
Long standing plans go well.
That come Sunday evening with a smile on your face,
Say "Yes! This Week-end's Been Swell"

STARRY, STARRY NIGHT:

STARRY, STARRY NIGHT:
As I looked out of my window,
At the dark ebony starry sky.
One word blew on the breeze,
That one word was "Why?"

Why do things happen in our lives,
Whether good or bad.
Things that make us happy,
Equally things that make us sad.

I appreciate as the adage do say,
"Life is what you make it" 
But fate I do believe in,
Should one be a failure or a hit.

Positivity is the answer I'm sure.
As I continued my nightime look enchanced,
Then the moon came into view.
I gave it a second glance.

You see before I drew the curtains
As into my bed I did sink.
I'm positive the "Man in the moon"
Gave me a comforting wink.

ALL I EVER WANTED:

Dedicated to my three kids
ROB, JOHN, DONNA:
 
ALL I EVER WANTED:
Ever since I could remember,
All I wanted was to be a good daughter and wife.
Well I think I established that,
Now that mother and husband is no longer in my life.
 
It was at this time of year that husband went away.
A sad time I know that you will agree.
But eventually I made a new life for myself,
Being as happy as I could could possibly be.
 
When I became a mother,
To my children three.
I vowed silently as I held them,
My love unconditionly.
 
Throughout their lives I've maintained that love,
Whatever problems arose.
From the very top of their heads,
To the tip of their toes.
 
All I ever wanted,
Since their dad is no longer be.
Is that they in their hearts,
Would be proud of me.
 
Proud of my achievements
That have occurred in my life.
Having four books published,
Not all this tears and strife.
 
Is it so very wrong
To want my children's pride?
Their attitude these past years,
My life has been a bumpy ride.
 
I WILL pick up the pieces,
That I'm very sure.
But after saying that.
I need their love even more.

A NEW WEEK:

A NEW WEEK:
A new week we commence,
One that's  full of hope.
Hoping that in my situation,
I will be able to cope.
 
Cope with all that life throws at me,
Whether good or not so.
That if the sun decides to shine,
Out in the big world I will go.
 
May your lives be great,
May  good fortune come your way.
A new week indeed.
To laugh, love and play.
 
HAVE A GOOD WEEK:

THE FIRST STEP IS THE HARDEST:

THE FIRST STEP IS THE HARDEST:
Following my hiatus of blogging.
I'm taking the first step back.
Trying to pick up the pieces,
While much confidence I lack.
 
I know with positivity and tenacity,
I will get there no doubt.
But suffice to say these past few weeks,
I've felt really "Washed out".
 
With health and family issues,
The continual loneliness I feel.
Not a soul to converse with for days on end,
I honestly felt quite ill.
 
But after much thought and deliberation,
Decided "All is not lost".
I've many a friend in the blogging community,
Mustn't lose them.....at no cost.
 
I hope you're all feeling well,
Have much happiness in your life.
Let the autumn sun shine down on you.
Away with tears and strife.
