My Shadow

43C7087C-502F-417E-BD08-CE1A454D973BMy shadow
Can’t be parted
From my side:
Lies beside me
Every night.
Snuggled down
Atop my bed,
My pseudo-baby
Wriggles and wriggles,
Pushing ever higher
To reach her goal
Of head on my pillow,
Nose in my face
In a doggy embrace.

I feel her
Stepping carefully
Between limbs
Changing her spot
Reverently, quietly,
Never disturbing me:
This girl is just perfect.
Whenever I wake
Whether early or late,
She will be waiting
For me to move,
Never waking me,
Just adoringly,
Next to me.

Missing You 😘

962F2D1A-D040-471F-8C34-7CAD476E5F77

We’ve travelled home
To bring you flowers
On this Mother’s Day,
Though to see your face
Would be the best bouquet.
We can’t hug or kiss you
But mothers up in heaven
Are loved more not less,
They know we miss them,
Remember, we were blessed.

There is a heavenly portal
Mothers can look through:
From glory’s height
To earthly flowers
Just to enjoy the sight.
Mother’s Day is tough
Without a Mam to share
Today our grief’s undressed,
Tomorrow will be better,
Remember, we were blessed.

Alzheimer’s Victim

4DDA666F-EA99-4451-AF4B-96CBAC83B525

Progress inevitably
Redefines personality,
Amplifies the past
When days were long,
Names were known,
And the sun shone.
Rage builds
Eliminating rationale,
What was known
Falls away,
Disjoined memory
Fails the day.
Temper seethes,
Anger precedes
Breakdown of speech,
Tyranny of disease
Locks me inside,
Should I be fed?
You decide.

Alzheimer’s victim:
Humanity stripped
Bit by bit.

Dedicated to my Aunty Gloria.

Romans 8:26-28 The Message (MSG) ‘’Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans.’’

Baked Alaska

Tonight’s curry was hotter
But I’m not sure why:
I use the same recipe
The same amount of chilli
Yet my eyes are watering,
My sinus’s cleared
My tongue is singed and
My tastebuds stripped
Of feeling!

The wood-stove is lit
And the heating’s on high,
My hot flushes are back,
I’m having an attack,
I’m heated from
From inside to out-
Maybe next week
I’ll search the books
And we’ll take a look at
Baked Alaska!

Impossible Love

A Lention reflection –

He who died for us
Dies for us still,
He who was still for us
Is still with us today,
Our life today,
Made possible,
By an act impossible
To explain rationally,
For no rationale,
Explains the greater love
That loves enough to die:

An impossible love,
A love that died
Yet remains alive.
Today and every day,
Pray, because
He loves you still,
He always will.

The Message – Romans 8:35-39

‘’Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture ….. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.’’

 

Trust

The words of a hymn
Made me cry today
And I just pray
The promises made
Of future healing,
No tears,
No wheelchairs
In heaven,
Come true.
I can’t understand
Why a child must wait,
Why prayers have no weight:
There’s no choice but to trust
That love will win.

1 Corinthians 13:13
‘’Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.’’
