Dear Friends...

Dear friends, just to let you know that I may not be around to visit your blogs for a while. My dear son Matthew is gravely ill in hospital in the Intensive Care Unit fighting for his life after complications from emergency major surgery.  His immune system is already compromised from the Multiple Sclerosis so that is not helping him at all. Yesterday every hour of life was a blessing, he is very ill and on Life Support and dialysis to give his heart and body a rest. We are just taking each hour and day as it comes, I don't know what the outcome will be. The nurses and doctors are wonderful, they are caring for him 24hours a day, the Councillor has been very comforting.
My daughter and other son have been of great support to me and Matthew's father.
I was called into the hospital at 6.45AM yesterday as his condition had deteriorated, he has stabilised a little but is not out of danger. Not much we can do but be at the hospital and go in to see him when we are allowed.
I will get back to you soon, hopefully with some better news.

Sincerely, your friend Dianne

Every Day - Tous les Jours

Every day I look for you
And wonder how you are
It seems like such a long time
Since you have passed my way
Once were words of kindness
And sweet posies of flowers
Now the silent hours
You feel so far away
Somewhere in the distance
Lost to me in time
I wonder do you realise?
Just how much I miss you
The measure of my sadness
When your words go unsaid
Such a feeling of emptiness
As I feel you drift away
Should I try to forget you?
For my hopes seem all in vain
And wishing for your presence
Only causes me much pain
I wonder if your thoughts
Ever echo my name?
For your name resounds
Within my thoughts
Every day …

For my friend C.B. wherever you may be.

Autumn Rising

Autumn waits beyond the horizon
Now the end of summer days
Air so sweet, cool and fragrant
Its freshness will encompass all
Soon the frost will cover grasses
Misty mornings, crisp and cold
Shorter days and longer shadows
Leafy shapes move on the wall
Little breezes stir the branches
Like confetti leaves will fall
The bright blue of the sky is fading
Taking on a softer hue
Sunshine sparkles on the water
In the streams, ponds and rills
Sun filled days and golden hours
Now until the skies are grey
Birds sing sweetly in the branches
Basking in the sun’s last rays
Soon to nestle in the forests
Anticipating autumn’s chill…
