Stress

Someone told me stress would be a thing of the past

The troubles and woes of  what has been wouldnt last. I was

Ready to embrace my future, ready to progress, I was ready to

Embrace my life, live it free from stress

Someone told me stress would be a thing of the past

Someone told me it wouldn’t last

Star Stealer

This is it, time to touch the stars

5

I hear the engine rumbling with anticipation, groaning with excitement

4

I feel the beat of my heart, the pounding in my head and the blood drain from my face

3

no turning back now, the wires are ejected from my trembling tin can, the new lick of paint cracking under the strain of gravity…what number are we on… 3… Or… 2

OH NO! I feel my heart thumping faster, my thoughts become jumbled

1

I gather my thoughts, my heart rate steadies

BLAST OFF

This is it, time to touch the stars

 

Why

Why

You won’t leave my thoughts, you won’t vacate my mind. Like a footprint in the sand, like an imprint in my heart

Why

I can’t forget the past, can’t replace what has been, when I pass landmarks in town I think of you, you were a landmark to me

Why

I miss you and can’t see how, I cry when you are not here. I can’t bare to think you’re with someone else, in their heart, in their mind

Why

Time shall fix it, time will mend, I can’t stop wondering, hoping thinking

Why

 

Motherhood

 

Mother

 

How do you describe a woman who you hold so dear?

 

How to you thank the lady who brought you here

 

Mum

 

How can I say thank you enough

 

How can I make up for the times when it was tough?

 

Mammy

 

It doesn’t matter how you it is spelt

 

What matters to me are the things which you have dealt?

 

Maw

 

You make it so easy, when I want to cry, you know when I’m truthful and when I tell lies

 

You’ve dealt with so much, when I was a wee boy

 

You tried to stay positive, buying me uniforms and new toys

 

No matter how I try, there is no easy way

 

To thank you for being you, each and every day
