What we were………..

Feeling reminiscent and found this………….


Every adult
Was once a child,
A mother a daughter,
A father a son.
Every flame
Was once a spark,
A flickering light,
A warm welcome.
Every flower
And every tree
Developed from a
Single seed.
A simple thought
Led to big ideas,
Success and riches
In subsequent years.
A drop of water
On its own is slight,
But a pool or lake
Gives the gift of life.
Not always so,
As some pretend,
But each stranger is
A potential friend.
Every ‘Us’ began
With a You and Me,
Dreams become wishes,
Then reality.
We all started out as
Something once small,
It is up to us
If we thrive or fall.

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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.
