For Mum and Dad

For Mum and Dad (22nd May 2022)

A candle burns, flickering gaily,
Memories whisper in my mind,
Two souls united, never again parted,
Having left their Earth Life behind.
The topper hearts spin, dancing lights on the ceiling,
Gentle music is heard in my head
Breaking the silence of a new day dawning,
As I lay alone in my bed.
Life is so precious, we take it for granted
Then one day, it’s suddenly gone,
Melancholy lingers, smiles and the laughter
Remembering when happiness shone.
Wisps of smoke raise their gift to the heavens,
Each one a kiss from me to them,
Always together, forever in my heart
Until the day we shall meet again.


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.
