Premium Member Good bye
Certain memories are etched in brain,
And there shall for ever remain,
Like the day, dad bid good bye,
Never to come back again!

No hand shall restore or regain,
Smiling at mum the child slept,
Never to wake up again!

Poor Paddy's wife thinks he is cruel 
Because of his strict leap year rule
No leap year   - there’s no gift
It's caused many a rift

His wife gets no gifts for three years

Premium Member A day with mum
He held her finger to help cross the road,
At age of thirty mum was getting old,
They went across to buy her new glasses,
She finds it hard to read in her classes.

The shop was large like a sports stadium,
They even had...Read More

Men bleed a river before they cry
A knife stab on a man
Hurts as much on a kid

He has to remain mum
A brave face to cede

A woman on his side, on the other a son
Two souls to shield, emotions never freed

He has strength to lift a tonne
And...Read More

Gnarled fingers yearn to touch those keys
and perform Moonlight Sonata
Young supple hands once played with ease
mum had memorized Toccatta 

She hasn’t played for several years,
gnarled fingers yearn to touch those keys 
Mum can’t hold back her anguished tears -

The senselessness of war
The senselessness of war

As you waved your goodbyes.
Tears swelled up in my eyes.
As I feared what  all parents dread.

You left full of life.
Leaving a son and a wife. 
And you ended up getting yourself dead.

Now the battle is won....Read More

Son And Heir

She whispered in my ear of neon lights, my mother,
life long actress,
waning star in sick bay,
zany bird nest hairstyle on display,
lock and tress erect,
skin-fold ripple eggshell pallor,
mothball end play flutter from the wings.
The voice that once enthralled a thousand hearts...Read More

Sat at his little table and chair,
In his mother’s bedroom up stair!

Cold and Lost
She sits alone on the cold, dirty pavement
looking despondent and lost
her small voice request pleadingly 'any loose change miss'
I see her most days on my way to work
wonder at her age, her history and ask myself 'where is her mum'?

Mum told Me
Mum used to tell me
the bible contradicts itself
and that's true
but is it like a riddle 

waiting to be solved
the bible says 
God created man in his image
so God should look like a man

I visited mum today 
as I do almost every day

She greeted me with open arms

And then says

‘I didn’t think you’d come ...
I thought you had fallen out with me’

Yesterday everything was fine
and it was fine the day before

Weighing, stirring, mixing

The pan gave a twist as I tried to resist

amongst all the other things
