August 5th 2019

This time last year I posted a poem for my Mum and Dad as it was their wedding anniversary and there is an entry in The Book of Remembrance for them as they were united when my Mum died in January 2018.

This is my poem for them this year:

The page is open today under glass,
As another year has come to pass,
Together again, to be parted never
You walk in the Garden of Forever.
A place where peace and roses bloom
Filled with birdsong and sweet perfume,
Free of stress, confusion and pain,
I know one day we’ll meet again.
I speak of you with so much pride,
No longer here, but still by my side:
A life of memories none can take away,
You are in my heart every day.

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.
