Soft Morning Sky...



Soft morning sky...
On waking, in those first moments
Of consciousness
In the softness and the quiet
My thoughts meander
Amidst the beauty of your light
And drift as if floating on a cloud
Your promise of a new day
Wraps my heart in hope
That one day the dreams
I have just left
Will become a reality...

Vale Alan Rickman

21st February 1946 - 14th January 2016

I was so very saddened and shocked to hear of the death of Alan Rickman, one of the best-loved and most warmly admired British actors. A wonderful man and magnificent actor playing roles of many characters both in films and on stage, a man with the perfect voice.To me he will always be the kind and honorable Colonel Christopher Brandon in the 1995 screen adaptation of Jane Austen's novel Sense and Sensibility. Rest in peace dear Alan, you will be forever in our hearts, your legacy eternal.

If I could...





If I could paint you a meadow
Of soft sighing grasses
I would fill it with wild flowers
Of every colour, every hue
If I could paint you the sky
It would be of brightest blue
With white wispy clouds
And the sun shining through
If I could paint you a meadow
It would be my gift just for you…

Holding Moments ...




Thoughts of you come to me
When I sense you passing my way
Holding moments forever
Memories of other days
Happiness filled my heart
When you told me of your days
Your words linger like a melody
From a song of yesterday
Keeping them close to my heart
Before they drift away ...
