A picture says a thousand words,
But these are some that won’t be heard.
Protected, hiding behind the glass
Catching your eye as you walk past.


I remember every line
Of this my life, my world, Our time.
The good, the bad, the lows and highs,
The fats and thins, the His and Mys.


As years progress, the colours may fade
But the images here were foundations made,
Framed for all the world to see,
What made me smile, what made me, Me.


Times of solitude, occasions to share,
Moments of haste, knowing when to take care.
People I loved, those I lost,
My tears and pain, the emotional cost.


In years to come, as many now gone
The memories here will live on and on,
Perhaps some people will gaze in awe
At these pictures reflecting My Life’s Jigsaw.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
