It’s plain and simple
Nothing out of the ordinary
It’s called love!
We sit with it
We feel it
We watch the oceans ebb and flow
The toing and froing
Like love can be at times
We hope and wish it could be ours
In the wee small hours
Where there is such darkness
Where at times love cannot be found
We hope that our love will be profound
Profoundly, overwhelmingly empowering
It’s the trinity
Love, Hope and Faith
That we all wish for!
A wish for evermore
I know in my heart of hearts
You are there in the distance
I watch
I wait
I’ll watch the waves ebb and flow
I’ll sit in the daybreaks
I’ll sit in the day’s dusks
I’ll watch the sun rise and fall
The glimmer of hope
That is there with the stars twinkling above
And here’s hoping that you’ll be my rock
A rock through the ages
A rock so strong, so sturdy
That you’ll never let me fall
A wish, a hope
That you’ll be
My lover, my best friend!
There isn’t a man that’ll make me feel so special
But I’ll be waiting patiently
There ain’t no man that’ll love me always
But I’ll be waiting patiently
There ain’t no man that is caring
But I’ll be waiting
There ain’t no man that’ll be so sensual, physical, sexual
Right here, right now!
But I’ll be waiting patiently
There ain’t no man ravishing me!
But I‘ll be waiting patiently
There ain’t no man kissing me passionately
But I’ll be waiting patiently
There ain’t no man capturing my soul
Making me feel whole
But I’ll be waiting patiently
There ain’t no man here to run to!
When I feel so sad and lonely
But I’ll be waiting patiently
With all my heart and soul
Just for you and you alone
Are you just a mere hope?
Oh I hope not
But I’ll be here waiting patiently
I cannot say much more
Yet give me the right
To love you with all my might
Tonight and every night
Day after day

A little bit about me, I’m a mum to three grown up sons, who have all flown the nest. And also in 2013 I completed my University studies with the Open University here in the UK, attaining the level of Business Studies, who says we seniors cannot keep up with the younger generation?
I have only been writing poetry since February 2012 and feel as though I am still a newbie on the block as the saying goes. And it all started with being in a poetry group on social media, reading other poets works, and that is when I tried my hand at it and found that since then I have not stopped.
It was with a huge honor and privilege when I was asked to become an International Poetry Judge, judging poets from across the globe and their works, in poetry competitions, this role and position I do take seriously. And love what I do.
Also I have quite a few published eBooks, and paperback editions on Amazon.com and paperback editions are published through CreateSpace.com. Some of the titles include ‘Sunburst and Flames’ ‘Simply Magical’ and ‘Pure Essence Within’
