I glimps of you
while you sleep
This heart of mine
it does weep

Lost love
in the past
A perfect union
never meant to last

Eyes look at me
with intensity
of things that use to be

Makes my heart yern
For the melodies
your fingers played upon my skin
Beautiful melodies
from deep within

I see you hiding
just beyond my reach
Behind scared eyes
a mouth
with out speech

Saddens my aching heart
In this life of mine
soon we shall part

Soulmate, Lover, Friend
I shall be by your side
till the very end
Illness seeps in
Taking all in its path
Leaving only a shell of what was

Shattered hearts
Tears wept
Broken dreams
Memories forgotten

But Hey
Life must go on

Right :)

Your walk elegant
as if in a dream
A vision of loveliness
is how you are seen
Long and lean your body
with a big loving heart
Knew you were special
from the very start
Our brothers a lucky man
to have fallen for you
How you love him back
For him
A dream come true
When it comes to love
2 things are a must
Your relationship
has both
they are
friendship and trust
So glad my brother found someone so lovely

Woke up last Sunday
Vision slightly impaired
was my eye playing tricks
thought it was nothing to be feared
But my eye did not correct
Straight lines wonky
Vision blurred
My head feeling slightly giddy
a little nuts
It was absurd
4 days in
off to the optometrist
I went to see
Not Retinal Detachment
But Macular Degeneration
So my thoughts really were
"oh ?#$@ me"
So I went to the hospital  
It was so hard not to flee
My eye ball was numbed sanitised
then injected into
So hopefully the injections work
And my eye will be fine
Because if they don't work I'll end up legally blind
If your eyes ever play up go have them checked.
Had to write this with my left eye closed.

If I could turn back time
I would hit Backspace all day,
Id put on Caps Lock
and SHOUT what I say.

I'd use the whole Alphabet
To tell you hello,
Press seven Numbers
Til your phone is aglow.

I'd Tab through the comments
I didn't want to hear,
And use the Arrow Keys
To drag your body near.

I would Delete the harsh words
I didn't mean to speak,
And Insert the "I love yous"
I before couldn't leak.

I would use Ctrl to
Keep reigns over my heart,
And I would Escape lies
That tore us apart.

I'd Print out your photo
And kiss it goodnight,
Use the Calculator
To check that it was right.

I'd Paint you a picture
of us, you and me,
Then I'd hit Enter
Just so you would see.

Those are the things
I would do in my strife,
If only Backspace
worked in real life.
This is the first poem (that I have a copy of) i wrote that I actually thought was good. I was in seventh grade, twelve years old, and I wrote it for a newspaper competition. I knew it was really great but I didn't think I would beat all other applicants in the state in my age group. So you can imagine my surprise I'm sure when I DID win! That is the first time I was proud of my writing. So this one has a lot of special sentimental value. Thanks for reading.

My family are far from perfect
Some can be quite extreme
My siblings extraordinary artist
A sidecar racer my dad has been
Mum a caring support worker
A trait passed on to my sister and me
My children on journeys
of their own
One girl
two boys
makes three
My grandaughter
so very gorgeous
she's just learnt to run
Having just had her 1st birthday 
 life for her has only  just begun
My nieces and nephews
all unique
amazing in their own way
Aunties door always open
for them to come and stay
My Aunties
wonderful people I adore
most live in New Zealand
wish I could see them more
Finally my husband
always kind
swept me off my feet
and wrapped me
in a love divine
Love my family
