HAPPY SATURDAY:

HAPPY SATURDAY:
Once again it's Saturday,
Off to the market again.
Had to remain indoors yesterday,
It simply poured with rain.
 
It appears to be a little brighter today,
I hope it's the same where you may be.
May all your plans go smoothly,
Over land and over sea.
 
Do have a wonderful week-end.
All the problems of the past week gone.
May laughter be in abundance.
So get out there and have some fun.
 
HAPPY SATURDAY:
YVONNE.

AS THE MOONBEAMS KISSES THE OCEAN:

AS THE MOONBEAMS KISSES
THE OCEAN:
 
As the moonbeams kisses the ocean,
I walk along the shore.
Thinking of life in general,
Missing you even more.
 
As the moonbeams kisses the ocean,
I recall happy days together.
Of those there were plenty.
We also faced stormy weather.
 
As the moonbeams kisses the ocean,
I feel your presence near.
You were and are my soulmate,
To alleviate any troubled fears.
 
As the moonbeams kisses the ocean,
Still walking along the shore.
I wished we could have had longer together,
It appears God wanted you more.

TUESDAY NIGHTS EVENTS:

 TUESDAY NIGHT'S EVENTS:
Tuesday was an extremely hot day,
Cool air fan circulating my room.
Way too hot to venture out.
Hoping it would cool down soon.

I went to bed early ,
As thunderstorms were predicted.
It plays havoc with my Epilepsy,
Hoping to sleep through unaffected.

After a few hours I awoken,
Could see no rain had fell.
What happened to the thunder thought I?
Feeling exremely well.

Then "IT HAPPENED".
Lightning flashed across my face.
I put a mask over my eyes.
So the lightning I could erase.

This went on for quite a few hours,
I had to remove the mask.
To see my way to get a drink,
Seemed an endurable task.

Then I ESPIED IT,
On the facing wall.
A spider large as life.
Making an unwelcomed call

I am not a lover of the creatures,
More gloom and doom.
The nightmare for me was evident,
Thunderstorms and spiders together in my room.

I lay there for what seemed like eternity,
Eyes glued to the wall.
To establish the movements of the spider,
In between the flashes of lighning.....not having a ball.

I lost track of the spider,
As an Epiletic seizure came my way.
Quite an eventful night was Tuesday.
Is what I would like to say.

DARK SIDE OF LONELINESS:

I wrote this to my three children
some years ago.....it still
carries the same sentiments:
DARK SIDE OF LONELINESS:
I hope you never experience
The deep emotions I feel.
I know what you really think of me,
Yet I love you still.

I live on the "Dark Side Of Loneliness",
Perhaps I've forgotten how to smile.
It would be wonderful to feel really wanted,
If only for a while.

These past nineteen years how hard I've tried to cope.
Many mistakes have come my way.
Moving from Spain was one,
Returning back to the UK.

I don't want to "Cling" to you three.
Lord knows you have problems of your own.
But it would be nice some day,
For you to surprise me on the phone.

The Dark Side of Loneliness
Is not a state I'd reccomend.
I appreciate it's up to me to find the light,
But comforting to know on you I can depend.

To depend on your support.
Not all of you do.
As a mother's love is unconditional
Can the same be said about you.

Should you ever encounter the dark side of loneliness,
Which I hope you never do.
There is one person you can contact,
Me ! I'll help see you through.

IT'S A SUNDAY EVENING:

I was in a whistful mood
like the cat above:
I wrote this to my UK son.


              IT'S A SUNDAY EVENING:
It's a sunday evening,
The sun's about to set.
It's been nearly eight years(come Christmas)
Since we last met.

Much water has flowed beneath the bridge,
Since that Christmas Eve.
Alot of it not good,
I know that you will believe.

With tenacity and hope,
Things can change for the better.
For instance, speaking on the phone,
Instead of an email letter.

Then of course in due time,
Perhaps we could meet.
We've both changed in appearance I presume,
I'm an elderly lady now says I with defeat.

Please reply to my messages,
That's all I ask of you.
Don't leave me out of the family,
Whatever I did wrong I've paid through and through.

MY HOPES FOR YOU THIS SUNDAY:

MY HOPES FOR YOU THIS SUNDAY:
I hope this Sunday brings you peace,
On the outside and on the in.
For inner peace is something special,
It's a goal everyone can win.
 
Another hope this Sunday is happiness.
May this be in abundance to you.
Going around being unhappy,
Will not see you through.
 
Yet another hope this Sunday.
Is that you be free from pain.
If for  only a few hours.
Should it return again.
 
I hope   that this Sunday.
Laughter comes your way.
Laughter is the best medicine.
I'd rather have laughter any day.
 
At the end of this Sunday.
What I sincerely hope.
Is that you can face the world,
And realise that in all situations you can cope.

MY WONDERFUL DAY: (THURSDAY )

MY WONDERFUL DAY: (THURSDAY )
I had a wonderful day Thursday,
That there was no doubt.
I wiil relate to you the events,
That from the UK I want to shout.

It began with going grocery shopping,
Coming home by taxi cab.
As it was way to heavy to carry,
My arms full of flab.

I then proceeded to unpack the items,
In their prospective places.
Had a most welcomed cup of coffee,
Whilst kicking over the traces.

Next I went to the market,
Some great offers that's for sure.
Have some lovely clothes for the summer,
Who could ask for anything more?

I then went to mail a letter,
Bought some flowers on the way home,
Also some house plants,
To adorn my kitchen room.

The next thing for me is the "Icing On The Cake",
I proceeded to browse the Internet.
And was astonished to what I found.
Will I be going......hopefully you bet.

It appears Danny Boy is in concert here
In December no less.
How I failed not to know that
Is a mystery I confess. 
Myself and Daniel at Nashville TN 2011:

Well on the phone immediatly,
My ticket for to buy.
Yes! they had one on the ground floor,
Tears of happiness I did cry.

Well that was my "Wonderful Thursday"
Wonderful without a doubt,
So you see folk that is why,
From the rooftops I wanted to shout.
