Will you
Miriam Aug 31
Will you be my hope in the darkness
Will you  love me no matter what
Will you be my light
My knight in shining armour
Will you will lift me up when I fall
Will you dive right in when it feels like I’m drowning
And will you build me up
When I don’t know where to begin

Somebody
Miriam Aug 31
Somebody
I just want someone to love
To make me feel enough
I just want somebody to hold
To warm me up when I’m feeling cold
So when I’m feeling lonely
And all the fears surround me
It’s just your face I want to see
Oh baby just love me

2019 was so sweet
2020 we got knocked off our feet
but sometimes we’ve got to fall down
to get back up
And realise that life’s not always buttercups

Everyday
Miriam Jul 24
Everyday I think about you
I don’t even know you
Your not part of my life
Is it admiration?
Is it love?
I don’t know but I’ve had enough
Of falling for someone I can’t trust

2020 now

2020 now
It feels like we are slowly making it to the other side we’ve received cuts and bruises but now we have reached a meadow, there’s still thorns but they don’t hurt as much as we look upon the flowers of our growth and can see the lush grass that awaits called hope

Though the thorns of pain are all but dead and gone we see the blue sky of a future yet to come -pain has choked us but we won’t let it destroy and like a flower we will bloom again so turn your face towards the sun! There’s a brighter future to come

BLACK LIVES MATTER
Miriam Jun 7
Black lives matter
All lives matter
Everyone should be treated the same
Loved the same
I’m George Floyd - say my name
For those who have suffered
We can’t stay silent - or ignore their pain
Now we have spoken out-that’s not enough
We must take action
So this never happens again
How has it taken us so long to respond?
To things that started years ago
Across the pond
Dear injustice- dear racism
You don’t deserve to live in our world
So with our weapons of love
We’ll keep fighting-keep pushing
Till your defeated-
and drowned out by our voices
Black lives matter!
We may never go through what you have
But we support you- we will lift you high
Till you and your names - touch the sky
We will unite in power-in prayer
And in our hearts
For We all bleed the same
Your George floyd -we’ll always remember your name
Such a great loss! But you caused a greater gain
A movement that will change the world
Sad it took something like this
For us all to awake
But all for justice
So no more die in vain
Written to speak out against racism and injustice and stand with those who have suffered because of it ©️Mhawley 2020

Life is short
Miriam May 23
If you want to do something in life
Then go do it
Life’s too short
To dwell on our mistakes
To live in fear
To hold regrets near
We don’t get any second takes
But neither does the first one have to be perfect
So if I u want something in life
Chase it ,pursue it,do it

THE BEAUTIFUL GAME
Miriam May 16
I long to feel that feeling again
The feeling inside-like a surging tide
That feeling you can fly
as emotions touch the sky
That excitement,adrenaline
That keeps on flooding in
That determination,not giving in
A desire to see the win
As your dream rise higher
Keep feeding that fire
So dear beautiful game,
Life’s not the same
I long to feel your heartbeat again

Searching
Miriam May 14
Your right here with me
But it feels like we’re oceans apart
Your talking to me
But it feels like your miles from my heart

It feels like I’m losing you
Got to close down this gap
Reaching out through the distance I
Hear you calling my name

So I’m searching to find you
To hold you close once again

And I would sail away to your shore
Because your the only one I adore
And I just can’t take it no more
I’ve got to tell you how I’m feeling inside
My mind and my soul are in a fight
And I’m praying one day we’ll see the light
One day -

And I’m all dried out waiting like this
The tides gone out on our sandy abyss

I wish the tide of our love
Would flood back in
And let the waves roll over the mess we’ve made

So I’ll send out a message in a bottle
Hoping that you’ll read my words
Because waiting for you like this
Really hurts

My heart flutters like a sail
Fighting through the storms
Guiding me through the waters
A compass to your soul

You and I
Miriam May 6
Eyes shining in the dark
Like the moon reflecting on the sea
You had a fire in your heart
That ignited in a spark
burning into me

Here’s me wishing the moment would last forever
Tomorrow comes
Day dawns
And it’s only a slight memory

Here’s me stuck in your world of dreams
Your wanting me to please
But I just want to leave
I’m yearning to be free
What did u think? Let me know down below **

Life now
Miriam May 5
It’s like the whole world is sleeping
I’m living in a dream
The birds are still tweeting
that’s about as normal as it’s been

We’re living in history
One day we’ll look back
And what’s now a mystery
Will be a fact

Nature is the only thing keeping me sane
And the  world we once knew will never be the same
I’m praying we don’t go through this again

But let’s take the positives
It’s brought us together
It’s taught us that we  can get through
stormy weather

So when this is all over
We’ll remember the days
But will we go back to our own ways?

Heroes wear blue
Miriam May 5
Heroes wear blue
Blue like the sky
Keep looking up,we’ll get by

Heroes wear blue
Each one a star
Shinning through the night

Heroes wear blue
So keep doing what you do
I know it’s hard, but we will get through
Whatever colour you wear thank you for being there
So from all our hearts -that’s where love starts
Thank you for being you !
A poem to say thank you to all the NHS
You are all heroes thank you!

S U N S E T
Miriam May 4
Whole skies ablaze,set on fire
Clouds like islands,floating in a crimson sea
Smooth and sweeping,golden sand
Deserts in the sky
Twisted black,framed against this display
And Graceful birds dance high and low
This sunset becomes the greatest show!
I wrote this earlier this year when I saw the most beautiful sunset ever in the countryside  it’s hard to imagine without a picture but hope this poem helps

Turn of the sea tide
Miriam May 4
Surging forward ,then drawing back
Whispering,fizzing,ebb and flow
Abruptly returning before you know
White tipped army eager to charge
Abuzz,bubbling,runaway,absorbate
Skimming the sand,skulking and skittering
Resting and retreating before next burst
Boldness,beauty and wonder collide
This is the turn of the sea tide
A poem simply about the sea and its tide

Rain
Miriam May 4
Watch me hammer down at the ground
Watch me batter and pound
Watch me turn the world into mini streams
Watch me fall like tiny rods of beams
Watch me turn the ground into a quagmire
Watch me rise the water level higher and higher
An old poem i wrote about rain

Beyond the rain
Miriam Apr 30
Your tears ran down your face
Like water trickles down glass
My heart pours out for you
Like an overflowing brook
I will be your umbrella
I’ll shelter your from life’s rain
Now I’ve got you I’m not letting go
You steer,I’ll row .
This poem uses  water to describe someones love for another

Overflowing to everyone
Victoriously spread me
Even if others don’t show it

Sunset -Sunrise
Miriam Apr 29
The golden orb is setting
The day is put to bed
But the night still roars loud to us
It’s still inside our heads

The stars come out shining
Dancing in the moonlight
A shimmering flickering glimpse
Of a universe beyond our sight

The first light rises
The world rises too
Freshness embraces,kissing the air
And Fields lie sprinkled with dew

A world of new beginnings

God is in control
Miriam Apr 14
When the world has fallen apart
And your not sure what the future holds
When you don’t know what to do
And your unsure if you’ll make it through
When your stumbling in the dark
With no fire,no spark —

Focus on God,the saviour of your soul
He will deliver you,he’lol call you his own
He’s our refuge our shelter
His ways never faulter
When everything around is falling
He’ll set you us upon sure ground
The worries of the world melt away
Become so small-
In the light of His Glory and Power
Just remember through it all
God is in control
Bigger than our problems-
He’s already overcome the world

Do you know
Miriam Apr 14
Do you know?
Does it show?
That it's Killing me to let you go

Please don't leave
No apologies
Can't you see me down on my knees?

I Need you know
Just turn around
I was lost but you made me found

Cant you see
Your a piece of me
Life without you is incomplete

together we are strong
Miriam Mar 16
It’s hard to hear about the heartache of the World,
When we here are just getting on with our lives,
The things we take for granted,
Are so big in other people’s eyes.
Right now while we are sleeping,others might be suffering,calling out for help.

So let’s just stop a minute and think about how lucky we are
And think about how much we have compared to those in places afar..
This isn’t a poem of woe,but together we can show,
The ones that are suffering,just how far love can go.
So join with me and be together let’s help the needy...
Because together we are strong!
Let’s come together and help those that’s need it

Light
Miriam Feb 17
Light,the heartbeat of the city
A thousand lights to show the way
An essence that surrounds our everyday
Where would we be without light?
An undertow,to the rhythm of life
What would happen if it all went dark?
No more spark,everything falls apart
No more trail,no more tune
Light,we take it for granted
But would we survive in the dark
The worlds already dark enough.
Copyright ©️Miriam Hawley 2020


I wrote this poem after a drive through the city and it occurred to me how much lights there are in the city and how much our lives  we rely on light and energy

Fire
Miriam Feb 9
You have a fire within you,
It’s burning  up inside
You can achieve anything
Don’t let your dreams hide
You can rise up again
When people stamp you out
Just believe in yourself
That’s what it’s all about

Your smile
Miriam Feb 7
Your smile is like the morning sun,
Bringing beauty and warmth to the world.
Your eyes are like shining stars,
Lighting up the dark sky at night.
Your laughter is like a new spring day,
Refreshing the air with one touch.
Your lips are like red,summer cherries,
Sweet and soothing to the taste.
Miriam Hawley
