Poet's Notes About The Poem
(Show Details...)

Written for John and Carla Sherman, who with their simple method cured me of the worst aspects of PTSD which I had suffered from for forty years. Just by giving me one simple act to do. I owe them heaps, as I do poetry

Here's to John and carla

Here’s to John and Carla
Oh what a lovely pair
I see they’ve come a long, long way
Their stuff is on the air
And many folk are listening
To what these two do say
As they give us each an act to do
And do it every day.

Once I heard their story
And I knew it was for me
Such a simple act they gave 
But how it made me free
From all that old insanity
That had dogged me for years
It took away that shadow
That little point of fear.

And now my life is happy
I am dancing on the air
A sweet bubble of laughter
Is with me everywhere
All it took was just one look
One simple look at me
Oh, how I thank that lovely pair
So very endlessly.
