The Very Last Poem

Dear friends, followers, countrymen, lend me your eyes,

This is the very last poem I’ll be posting on this blog. I’ve grown uncomfortable with the name it has. I can hardly bring myself to tell people the name of my blog when they ask, my conscience bothers me so. I’m not stopping my writing of course! My schedule will simply be moved to my new blog SmallSmilingPrincess, found here: https://smallsmilingprincess.wordpress.com Please do follow and leave a comment on how I could improve my blogging; whether by greater community involvement, posts that allow you and I more interaction, advice on my writing, etc.

I will only post on this blog to let people know if something big is happening in my writing career. Till then, so long and thanks for all the follows.

Best wishes,
Andrew

Time has come,
Endings near,
Conscience shakes,
Goodbye’s here.
My dear friends,
Know this one,
True true line,
I’m not gone.
Missing now,
Return soon,
Holding new,
Poems’ boon.

The Fear of Loneliness

The first verse is personal. The second is a comment.

The worry of being apart:
Will I ever see you again?
Yes, we always have embraced,
But was yesterday the last?
I can’t imagine the life to be faced,
If I lost love.

Standing up when you are alone:
It cannot be done, I am sure.
Yes, it is possible to,
Carry on without one help,
But to replace it we seek many, who,
Can’t give true love.

Snow Has Fallen

It snowed today! Not much, but it settled slightly and it was a beautiful awakening.

Flakes did fall, I did joy,
At sight of cold beauty,
Returned to boy.

To see the sun through white,
To view the world in chill,
My! What a sight.

Belly Rubs!!!

This poem is based upon my fiancĂ©e’s dog. He loves attention from everything! Human, dog, cat, fox. You name it, he wants to play with it!

Scritch, scritch, scritch,
The dog is kept faithful,
And payment is made.
Scratch, scratch, scratch,
He is his most playful,
When love seems to fade.

Flight of Memory

Things fly from my mind as vultures fly to a fresh kill.

Jumble

I never could before control my wording.
My sentences were a mess of letters.
Some still are, but I try hard in ordering.

The main problem, that I still find,
Causing me such ache of tongue,
Is the control of my self-mind.

Fact: my mind is all a jumble,
Because of that, I am kept down,
Not depressed, but greatly humble.

I realise that if a thought is got,
Then that means it has been given.
Given by whom? Given through what?

I have faith that my answer is correct,
But having read and considered many,
It is difficult to tell someone direct.

A Good Long Day

A good long day,
With joy all stirred through,
Creating a concoction of well deserved rest!

I Want To Live

It’s a day I struggle with, because I am alone with myself a lot of the time. So, to combat feelings and thoughts I have written something uplifting to go in tandem with action.

I want to live,
To feel the breeze,
To know the names,
To hear the cries.

I want to live,
To dodge the freeze,
To view the Thames,
To scan the skies.

I want to live,
To hold her near,
To face a foe,
To grasp a dream.

I want to live,
To fight a fear,
To up and do,
To end a scheme.

A Child

The basis for this poem is: myself and my immaturity through inexperience and ill-discipline. I hope I never have cause to right such a poem again.

Late again, he’s such a child,
Please, take away the teddy bear,
Tear the blanket from his form,
Give him armour and shield to wear,
Prepare him for the coming storm.

I’m Back/Bright Mornings

It has been a long while since I posted anything at all. This is, because I took the holidays off to be with family, then I was ill, and most recently I have been starting a heavier load of work.

Now steadied and with a few ideas of where to take my blog this year, I am prepared to continue posting every week. I have also decided to split off a chunk of specifically spiritually related poems/hymns and post them on a new blog called SmallSmilingPrincess.

So, apologies to all those who have missed my posts in their reader feeds, but I’m back now! Hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas and the New Year is proving pleasant and a great step forward in life.

Thankful for the blue above,
Also the green around,
Birds living and singing,
Blest am I to hear joyful sound.

On this bright, chilly morning,
Green trees are no longer,
The wintry sky still holds,
Beauty in silhouettes like hair.
