Time May Pass



M.H (A Voice in 7 Billion)


Time May Pass


So many memories does this item hold,
So many joys and moments it conjures in my mind.
One day long ago you gave this to me,
One Very Special Day.

Small and round, gold and pure,
This symbol of our love,
That from the start was worth so much more,
Than money could ever buy.

An item that survived so much,
Life and love and joy,
An item that connects me with you,
Even beyond the void.

So much time has passed, since you slipped it upon my finger,
Children, grandchildren, hellos and goodbyes,
Yet it feels as it were just the other day.

I realise to some it is just a ring,
Yet to me it is so much more,
Especially now without you here.

Never has this ring left me,
Never has it fallen off or disappeared,
Through all our life together and more.

I do not want to part with it, 
But for my health I must,
But don’t worry dear,
I will keep it safe and near.

Time has changed me,
Time has passed,
And you… are not here,
The one I choose and loved the most,
I miss you me dear.

Poem 98

There's a point (1.9.2016)

Life is hard and soft,
It's planned and unplanned,
It's joy, sadness, and a lot of hope.
Determination to success, and be happy.

I'll stand with you,
I'll hold you when you're low,
Laugh with you when you need,
Share a drink when you succeed.
I'll be there, every step,
Ever leap.

Life may hurt,
It may seem pointless,
But it's not.
It's a spark,
A gift,
An opportunity to Be.

When everything seems grey and dull,
Don't give up, don't give in.
I'm here,
I'll stay,
I'll listen.

Dance with me,
Navigate this maze.
Cry when we need,
Smile and share a lot.

You are my one,
And with you, the World is not as scary as it seems.

My Declaration (12.2.2015)

I don't think I will ever change the world.
I don't think I will ever be extraordinary.
But I hope I can play a part in making it better.

I am not outstandingly clever,
I am probably not even above average.
I am me,
With a heart full of hope and a mind full of words.

I probably won't change anything,
I most likely won't be remembered,
But I will have lived that best I can,
I will have helped where I can,
I will be who I can.

I will be me.

Decisions


Again I'm not to sure this could actually be called a poem but oh well :)

Which path will you take?
(I took these pictures in a number of locations
across the UK)
Decisions

Decisions are important,
They help us choose our path,
A path of enjoyment and happiness,
Or a path of pain and sorrow.

Sometimes decisions are hard,
Sometimes they are easy,
Some can hurt you,
Others can save you.

It may seem like you have made a good one,
But sometimes if you don’t think hard enough,
The decisions you make causes trouble or pain,
Maybe not for you but others.

Decisions are important,
They help us to think,
They could help you live a life you always wanted,
Or maybe they are what are stopping you.

I Was Not There

Today marks 100 years since Britian entered World War One. 

World War One, has always been history to me, as I was not alive. Yet over the years  I have learnt about it through history and literature.  I have learnt of the horrors and of the sacrifice. 

I see the world as an interconnected whole. Of billions of people living out their lives just like me and you. They have hopes and fears and loves and sadness. They have friends and family.

Humans are one species with a great potential, if only we can work together and have peace. 

I am thankful for those who saved us and for those who still risk it all. I will remember what they did and went through. I will remember World War One in hope that we, as a world, never end up some where like that again.

I have been trying to write a poem for a while concerning my feelings about World War One. It has been hard. How can I put in words all that I feel? 

Below is a poem I wrote today. I am not sure it quite gets it all across but I wish to share it anyway as a thank you and a remembrance.

I Was Not There:

I was not there,
I was not born,
I did not live through it all.
But I am thankful for those who saved us,
Gave it all for now.
This world lost many in terror and sorrow,
So many torn away.
Let us live having learnt,
Let us never forget.
We must learn,
We must live,
So they did not die in vain.

I Didn't Want To Say It

I wrote this poem after seeing 'The Fault In Our Stars' for a second time. It isn't necessarily to do with the film but it is something that grew out of my feelings after seeing the film.

This poem is sort of a eulogy.

*

I Didn't Want To Say It.

I don’t want to say it,
I don’t want to admit it,
But the hands of fate have been played,
And there is nothing I can do now,
Nothing.

All that is left are memories, illusions, and emptiness.
An empty house,
An empty seat,
An empty family.

I didn’t want to say it,
I didn’t want to because then, then it would be real.

Death is an inevitability for all of us.
I just wish it hadn’t been for you.

The light went out to early,
The curtain was draw half way during an act,
You were mid sentence,
Mid breath,
Mid living.

I didn’t ever want to read this,
For that would mean the world was lost.
A world with no you
A world not worth the cost.

You tried,
Tried to live forever,
Tried to live each day,
‘Live as if there is no tomorrow’,
That is what you used to say,
‘Live to be the best you can,’
‘Live without a care,’
It is harder now without you here.

I don’t want to say it.
But I must, for you asked me to.

So:
Here today, you are gone.
Here today, we must live on.
We must not stop,
We must not grieve, too much,
We must Live.

Goodbye my dear.
