Aching Heart
I glimp fragments of you
while you sleep
This sad heart
it does weep

Perfect love
now in the past
A beautiful union
never meant to last

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

Makes my heart yern
for the melodies
your fingers
once played upon my skin
Precious
tender
melodies
drawn from deep within

I see you hiding
just beyond my reach
Behind
Sad
Confused eyes
Your beautiful mouth
Know with out speech

So sad my aching heart
every day we're togeather
Closer comes the day
when we shall part

Soulmate, Lover, Confidant, Friend
By your side I shall be
till the very end

Broken
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 :)

Sarah
Debbie Brindley Nov 2018
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
Debbie Brindley Nov 2018
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
My first thought
"oh ?#[email protected] me"
So off to the hospital  
It was so hard not to flee
My eye ball was numbed sanitised
injected into
So hopefully
It will be fine
Because if it doesn't work I'll end up legally blind
Scary
If your eyes ever play up go have them checked.
Had to write this with my left eye closed.

Family
Debbie Brindley Oct 2018
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 their own journeys
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
Uncles
Cousins
wonderful people I adore
most live in New Zealand
Wish
I could see them more
Finally my husband
handsome
loving
always kind
swept me off my feet
one day
wrapped me
in a love divine
Love my family

Warrior With Heart
Debbie Brindley Oct 2018
Strong and free
Warrior is she
Goddess with heart
She'll stand beside you
from the start
Her heart beats for you
the one she holds true
True love runs through her veins
She'll fight for you
through sunshine and rain
Give rise to her call
She'll not let you fall
Warrior staunch is she
This warrior
she is me
Being my husbands carer

Let Me Pretend
Debbie Brindley Sep 2018
Let me pretend our life is normal
there's no illness here
As I lay beneath the covers
with you
my dear

Under the covers
On a chilled mornings day
outside beyond our window
children are at play
Freshly brewed coffee
drifting in on the air
As we lay
beneath the covers
without a care

Spring flowers bloom
their perfume
dancing in on the breeze
Hear the Kookaburras laughing
outside in the trees
Dogs bark in the distance
a few streets away
But under the covers
nice and cosy
is where we shall stay

Till it's time to get started
on our day ahead
But for now I'm quite content
under the covers with you
in our bed
Pretending  life is  normal

Sad hearts
spilleth over

Muffled murmurs
of secrets kept

Arms embrace
holding tight
In the darkness of night

Unshed tears
locked away
Troubled fears know in play
Silent secrets

Year upon year
time has flown

Darkness is me

I don't know

My Heart Is Breaking
Debbie Brindley Aug 2018
My heart is breaking
Can you not hear
****** tears weep silently
today
life is to hard to bare
Through shattered shards
pockets of sadness
seep in
darkness creeps deeper
under my skin
Run from these feelings
but go where
My heart is breaking

This life's Harsh Lesson
Well yeah

IT'S HERE

In my face
Poking holes in my personal space
It hurts so bad when unable to fix
When life throws tragedy
into the mix
My heart is breaking
What can I do
Nothing
But be here
beside the one I hold true
Feeling sad

My Song
Debbie Brindley Jul 2018
Your hands and fingers
so very strong
Yet filled with tenderness
as you strummed my song
Such a wonderful guitarist
I loved watching you play
As the melody you played
carried you away
To a place so peaceful
it was beautiful to see
As you strummed the piece of music you'd written for me
Missing you. Missing you play

Romero and Destiny
Debbie Brindley Jul 2018
In the last 5 month's
Both my cats have
passed away
My mornings now so quite
I miss them both everyday

Romero
(Jan 08=Feb 18)
Such a magnificent cat
always ready for his morning cuddle and chat
Like a ******* panther he did look
Children thought him angry for his purring they miss took
You could lift him with two hands he'd be stiff like a plank
Put him round your neck
he'd hang there all lank
Such a chilled
layed back cat
was he
and he loved to curl up
on your knee
He'd knock on the door
if locked in a room
My poor Romero
dying way to soon

Destiny
(Mar 09=July 18)
This little **** so very pretty
timid at times
and a little bit skitty
Some days you'd not see her  
she'd hide away
But then
she could happily sit on your lap
all day
You'd see her meowing
without making a sound
She loved playing with tissue *****
smacking them around

Afternoons spent with each other
playing hide and seek
there would be chasing
with stealth like pacing

Now beside Romero
forever Destiny shall lay
In our garden under the rose bush
So forever they may play
Missing my cats terribly

Sad Song
Debbie Brindley Jul 2018
Lifes tragically hard
more things going wrong

Sometimes I do wonder
how sorrowful
the lyrics would be
if written as a song

A song of great love
friendship
contentment
and trust

Of passion
happiness
beauty
and
lust

Of illness  
tragedy
loneliness
and fear

Of anger
confusion
and heartbreak
over the one I hold dear

What sad lyrics they'd be
If my life with you
were a song

Along the crazy paving pathway
We shall stroll through our garden togeather 
   
Flowerbeds of

Salvia
Delphinium
Coneflower
Cosmos
Alyssum

Aster
Clavillia
Hollyhock
Poppies

Just to name a few

So come sit with me my love

Your Music
Debbie Brindley Jun 2018
Immerse me in your music
Let your melody
dance upon my skin
Surround me
in the notes you play
seducing me from within
Let the music take over
My body starts to sway
Emotion flows from your guitar
It's rhythm taking me away
On a journey
to where there is nothing
but your music surrounding me
Encasing my body
in the beauty of its melody
My husband was a fabulous guitarist. I miss hearing him play

Beautiful Hands
Debbie Brindley Jun 2018
I love your hands
So beautiful
So strong
The way your fingers dance
upon the fretboard
as you play a song
The tenderness in your fingers
as they caress my cheek
something you always do
before drifting off to sleep
The warmth
of your hand
as I take yours in mine
As we stroll through the bush
birds singing
the weather fine
How gentle they are
As you hold
our grandbaby in your arms
Nurturing
full of love
and always so calm
Playing the guitar
made your hands strong
I love their beautiful shape
your loving fingers long
Never was into hands until I met my husband

Appreciation
Debbie Brindley Jun 2018
Sit
say nothing
just let things go
extra stress
not needed
as our lives
find there flow

A well oiled machine
that's how we work
you and me
unyielding emotions
take there toll
everything has a fee

Not sure
I'd have coped
been able see
these years through
there is no one  
who helps me
the way you do

You give me strength
where I lack
I always know you've got my back
You make this life
a little lighter
sad
dark times
a little brighter

Thanks so much
for all you do
thanks little sister
I love you
A very strong woman
is my sister
Ooh and ;a little bossy
She has been a constant by my side during my husbands illness. Thank you my sister

Thank You Mum
Debbie Brindley May 2018
Thank you mum
for our precious times
that were filled with so much fun 
Our wonderful family holidays 
Starting when we were very young
Waipatiki beach such a beautiful place 
With the sun and the sea breeze on our face
Mum and Aunty in a caravan 
us kids would pitch our tents
Chuck on our togs, grab a towel
off to the beach we went 
Campsite was in a paddock 
Adjacent to the beach 
We had camp beds 
so mattresses were off the ground
So for us the evening chill did not reach
Sometimes a friend was able to come 
this would really add to the fun  
Such a special place this was
where the river meets the ocean
Late at night as we lay in our tents
we'd listen to the waves motion
Time spent at the beach  
searching for sea crustaceans
with mum and aunty
on our seaside family vacations
We'd swim in the River 
swim in the Sea
Such wonderful memories these are for me
Had to rewrite.
Wonderful holidays with mum, Aunty Rose
our cousins my siblings and sometimes a friend. Fabulous memories x

Rocking Your Mullet
Debbie Brindley May 2018
My journey to you
so very long
Men I'd dated
never singing the right song
Then one day
you were there
Leather jacket
Long blonde hair
I felt as if I was in a dream
You had the best **** mullet
I'd ever seen
You're handsome face
it did frame
You wore your mullet
without shame
Farrah Fawcett hair
my jeans real tight
Who could've known
we'd fit just right
The first time we meet
that majestic night
1980's Big hair, Big shoulder pads
Big everything

Children
Debbie Brindley May 2018
To give birth to a child
is a wonderful thing
The waterfall of emotions
The love it does bring
Your world is charged
forever more
Long sleepless nights
are in store
As fatigue
a messy house
set on in
You'll not really know
where the hell to begin
Baby will eventually settle down  
Order, routine
will come round
You'll laugh and cry
They'll melt your heart
You'll love them
like know other
from the very start
As they grow
from toddlers to teens
they may change into someone
you've never seen
Their teen years
may drive you insane
But their hormones go nuts
so they're really not to blame
Fill their world with
Hugs, laughter and fun
Cherish your child
as if they're the only one
Talk at the table
when you all sit for tea
Help them grow
to be the best
they can be
Spent mothers day with my siblings and our kids

My Broken Heart
Debbie Brindley May 2018
I cradle your love
in my heart
A perfect gentleman
you were
from the start

Your aura so beautiful
bright and strong
I knew
in your life
I belonged

Friends
lovers
soulmates
you mean the world to me
You left my spirit
untouched
wild
and free

One thing about our love
is no mask
did we wear
Any issue needed solving
the other always there

We never fort
never argued
Our hearts sung the same song

Maybe our love was too perfect
because illness came along

For you and I
  we would have journeyed
into old age togeather
Watching our children
and  their families
on journeys
to wherever

So sad it is
that you won't be by my side
We had talk of having granbabies
watching them grow and thrive

Our grandchildren will always know how much you mean to me
But our journey
into old age
togeather
Is something
that was never
meant to be
Love youI

Loving You
Debbie Brindley May 2018
Where life's headed
I'm not sure

For your illness
has no cure

I can't hide from the world
stay curled up in bed
Gonna grab the bull by its horns
and move forward instead

Fill our world with
warmth
love
cheer
Spend time with
family and friends
people we hold dear

Friends come visit
guitar in hand
to play you harmonious tunes
Afternoons filled with
fun and music
ending all to soon

Family days
stories past and present
lots of chatter
these days always pleasant

Our grandbaby
a little girl
Fills our world
with giggles and sqeals

Most days there's music and laughter
some times we sing and dance
Plus we take you driving
whenever we get the chance

Have to stay positive
make the most
of our time
Don't know what else I can do
but love you with this heart of mine
Love

Sleep Deprived
Debbie Brindley May 2018
9.30 pm
Nice warm shower
then into bed
On my pillow
I rest my head
Close my eyes
hope to sleep
distract my brain
count some sheep
Toss and turn
a hot sweat or two
lay here awake
think of you
Then my dreams
take me away
hope tonight this is where I stay
But now we're up at half 1
felt like sleep had just begun
Your all sorted  
hope you dream
straight to sleep
it does seem
If I sleep instantly
it's a treat
a whole nights sleep
you just can't beat
Next thing I know we're up again
it's half 5 in the morning
Drag my **** out of bed
Can't help myself from yawning
Your sorted
Back in bed
Once again I rest my head
Alarms are ringing
in my ear
Up again with not much cheer
Fruit and meds
I give to you
Then shower you
clean and fresh
I'm half asleep and look a mess
But back to bed
you want to go
It's just us today
so our day can be slow
Our support worker
has cancelled today you see
so I get to climb back into bed
for a more sleep
Yippee
Missing normal nights sleep
Debbie Brindley Apr 2018
Caring for you
my love
a harrowing experience
it has been
A life I had not expected
A life unforeseen
When things change in life
When things are taking away
I can't just except and for it be ok
I need time
I need space
In order to get my head
into the right place
To have support workers
come in and care of you
For them to take over
and do what I normally do
When my head
is feeling right
I'm able
To release
To let go
without a fight
So inadequate at times I do feel
When not giving time to release and then heal
My emotions end up in turmoil you see
Hurtling all around
inside of me
Having time
Having space
helps to mend
And makes things much easier
for me to transcend
Healthy coping skills

Panic Attack
Debbie Brindley Apr 2018
Suffocating feeling
gasping to breath
Overwhelming sensation
A need to leave
Isolation wanted
Great need for space
Overheating
Burning up
Sweat on my face
Head starting to spin
Walls closing in
Need to escape
Leave
Get out
Before it's too late
Inhale
Exhale
Out the door
Through the gate
Sit
Breath
Take my time
Got out
Got away
Everything will be fine
When I was 19 started  suffering panic attacks and the only way I could stop them was to leave the place I was having the panic attack. Had.them for about 3yrs

Amongst   the  chaos  in   your   head
     
                                           

Your words sit silent in a mouth which no longer speaks

Frustration and anger

Show

Behind coNfuSEd eyes

Void of colours

Watch out for you

Sweet Knight
Debbie Brindley Mar 2018
You came a calling
my gallant knight  
Stars twinkling
The moon bright
On your sleek black stallion
you came to my door
My heart pounding
as you crossed the
floor
Sweeping me into your big strong arms
Filling me instant with a tranquil calm
Your lips full and tender
are upon mine
A kiss so sweet
simply devine
Gently you take me
by my hand
Through the bush
Moonbeams lighting the land
Stopping at the waters edge
We sit relaxed upon a ledge
There is wine and a platter
what a fabulous treat
Such a lucky maiden am I
to have a knight so sweet
Date nights with my husband
The sleek black stallion
was my husbands midnight blue RX7

Your silhouette
against glistening waters
shimmering in the heat

My heart dancing

You have showing me a life

A life where I am free
to love you
without
stigma and decay
A life of unconditional love
So immense
So pleasurable
Even the smallest
of pleasures
seemed so much more
My world
more vibrant
more beautiful  
Because
lifes pleasures
were shared with you  
How lucky am I

fall in love

Dark Days
Debbie Brindley Mar 2018
Why was
I giving such a perfect love
Then have it so cruely
taken away
I really thought
my perfect love
by my side would forever stay
Is this what life throws at you
in order to make you strong
Some of life's challenges
are just nasty
and feel so wrong
I don't want you
to leave me
on this earth all alone
Everythings so twisted
makes my body
as cold as stone
Some days are so dark .
for me
I think of ways
for us to go together
But then I think of our children  
their love I truly treasure
So I try to see the good things
that I have
in what is my life
And to be there
for our children
in the good times
and when there's strife
I know that I can't leave this place
So I shall carry on
with a broken heart
And love you
till the very end
Until death do us part

Rocking Respite
Debbie Brindley Feb 2018
A fabulous day
to be had was in store
At Mash Brewery I casualy
strolled through the door
Our tables real long
30 + ladies are here
Eating lunch and chatting
with a wine,cider or beer
Then I spy the birthday girl
a friend I hold dear
Like all the other ladies
I bring birthday cheer
Then a call "all aboard"
gotta skull down my drink
To much of this  
I'll end up feeling real stink
So out of the brewery
single file we go
To our white disco bus
with our Kiwi driver Joe
With a smile to our driver
I say "Kiora Bro"
Then we're off on our journey
to different Swan Valley locations
There's laughter even a waterslide to release some of life's frustrations
Then all to soon my journey
must end
Then I hear a voice say
"Come to Guildford my friend"
More then happy to ablige
It's back to my seat
with a skip in my stride
At the Guildford Tavern I decide l'd love to go the whole way
And on my girlfriends couch
tonight is where I shall stay
Today I'm having respite
so my sister I call to see
if in the morning
she's able to come and get me
She's more than happy
Glad I'm having fun
I love my sister
she's my number one
So off on our bus down
the Highway we roar
Singing
"Girls just wanna have fun "
we let our voices soar
With our trusty driver Joe
in our white bus
with the disco light
We laugh, sing and dance
our voices carrying into the night.
The most fun I had in a long time

Take Notice
Debbie Brindley Feb 2018
Notice the things about
the one you love
Like their beautiful smile
The way that they dress
their own style
The tone of voice with
each change of mood
Or funny habits when eating food
The sound of their laugh
That look
just for you
The way their lips pucker  
as they drink
The way their **** looks
when they stand at the sink
The shape of their hands
The arch on their feet
All our loved ones are very unique
The color of their hair
Or expression in their eyes
The feel of their skin
The touch of their thighs
So make sure you notice
what you have today
Because someday
it may
just all go away
Stop and appreciate

You and Me
Debbie Brindley Feb 2018
Dreamt of growing
old with you
The pair of us
wrinkled and gray
In our garden
surrounded by
grandchildren and flowers
Thought our life
would end this way
But illness has come
On a solitary journey you travel
I'm here
watching you
trying desperately
not to unravel
So in my memories
forever young
you will be
While I get to keep living
When all I ever wanted
was just
you and me
My thoughts
overwhelming  
My heart filled with dismay
But it doesn't matter
how much I wish
it's not going to help you stay
So I shall just sit here
holding your hand
Telling you
I love you
and hoping you understand
Finding Todd's illness overwhelming at the moment

Son I Love You
Debbie Brindley Jan 2018
I love you son
from the bottom of my heart
This I have done
from the very start
From the day you were born
you turned my world
upside down
A little ball of energy
always running round
Your lashes long
Your eyes so blue
Your hair golden ringlets
How could I not
love you
Sometimes you'd walk
round with a blanket
over your head
And I would read you stories
when I tucked you into bed
There were also
tantrums
and
naughtiness
that comes when you are young
And on some of these occasions
you got a smack on your
***
Then one day
we became a family of 5
Where we lived was wonderful
it made you feel alive
You kids could
swim
camp
even climb the old oak tree
Occasionally you'd fall
and get a scrape or two
on your knee
We'd spend hours walking
at The Roleypools
That's all our favourite place
It really was a wonderful sight
to see the smiles
on your face
We also did star gazing
through the binoculars
at the moon
You kids grew up so fast
the time past to soon
One day I came home
to find a young lady
sitting
on the lounge room chair
So shy and so quiet
you'd hardly know that she was there
Slowly she's opened up to us
and come out of her shell
Be coming part of our family
this she has done well
Our son at Araluen
proposed down on one knee
She graciously excepted
her face glowing with glee
Now they live in a place
of their own
walking distance from the sea
Happily just the two of them
and their pussycat
Libby
My son said "Where's my poem"
So here you go son. Love you.

Tonsillitis
Debbie Brindley Jan 2018
I had a little headache
Slightly increasen over time
Nothing really
UNTIL NOW
11.30pm
I'm not fine
My throat is harsh
My ears do sing
with a gentle humming pain
Excruciating is my head
Body shivers
in my bed
Tonsillitis has come a calling
Like a torturis leeching stain
Creeping in  
Your unaware
It's so unfair
Then swallows you whole
In a torrent of fevers, delirium
right down to your soul
Feel like ****
Thank goodness I'm on respite

Making ones heart miss a beat

Rays of sunlight shimmer down

Gliding across a daisy covered ground

Abundance of birds everywhere

As we dance in the meadow

Messy breeze tousled hair

The season is changing

Autumn leaves float to the earths floor

Keep holding me close as we dance
some more

Sun descending cotton candy clouds way up high

Hues of orange and red fill the sky

Stars like diamond dust cover the black canvas of night

As we dance in the meadow

Guided by silver beams cast down from a full moon light
Nice memories
dancing with my husband

Afternoon Delight
Debbie Brindley Oct 2017
Touch so gentle and tender
Body and soul complete surrender
Lips so soft caress the skin
Close your eyes
and just give in
Arms and legs
Pull you near
Fingers tangled in your hair
All lifes worries fade away
In the grips of passion
you shall stay
Lust so hungry
an urge so great
Fast and frenzied
you just can't wait
Overwhelming sensations
Why put up a fight
Whole body tingling
Afternoon delight
Woke up with these words in my head

Guitar In The Corner
Debbie Brindley Sep 2017
Your
     Guitar
              Sits
                    In
                       The  
                            Corner
                        ­                Of
                                           The
                                               Room,
                                                       It
                                                       Breaks
                                                        ­ ­       My
                                                        Hea­rt­
                                              Knowing
          ­­                             You'll
                             Never
                       Play
          Another
   Tune,
        I
       Miss
             Watching
                          And
                      ­         Listening  
                                          To
                                               You
                                                    Play,
                                                          The
                                                            Music
                                                    Taking
                                             Over
             ­                    Making
                             My
                     Body
              Sway,
           I'd
   Close
         My
            Eyes
                   Feel
                        The
                             Beat,
                                  You'd
                   ­ ­                     Strum
                                                 Your
                                                       Guitar
                                              Tapping
          ­­                              Your
                                  Feet,
                        ­ ­      I'd
                         Feel
                   The
        Rhythm
     In
My
   Mind
          Body
                And
                      Sou­­l,
                            Feeling
                                        So
                     ­                      Connected
                                                   Never
  ­                                            Wanting
                                           To
                   ­                   Let
                               That
                    Feeiling
               Go
So miss hearing a guitar being played. Was  a constant sound in our home

Beautiful Girl
Debbie Brindley Sep 2017
You came into my life
aged 4
a lovely little thing
and to this heart
of mine
much pleasure
you did bring
I had laughter
and love
with my little boy
But girls
bring a different joy
You really were
a lovely girl
You put my life
into a whirl
We did crafts
dress ups
had days
filled with fun
Your hair
shone golden
when out in the sun
Now you're an adult
Into a lovely young lady
you've grown
with a husband
and a baby girl
A family of your own
So now I have a grandaughter
to give me years
of pleasure

and I'm sure just like her mum
she'll give me memories I'll forever treasure
This was written with much love
for my beautiful stepdaughter
who has been part of my life for almost
20years

Encasing my body
in the beauty of its melody
Love acoustic guitar

A love lost
Debbie Brindley Aug 2017
They say it's better
to have loved
and lost
Then to never have loved at all
But sometimes
I do wonder
as I watch you
crumble and fall
To see you vanish
before me
and not able to do a thing
I feel little pockets of madness
starting to creep in
To terrified to look 
to far ahead
Life without you
fills me with dread
So I deal with life
one day at a time
Feeling my way through
as if I am blind
But to NEVER know
what it is to love
Really would be sad
And what we had was
unconditional love
And to have experienced that
I'm truly glad
So it is better to have
loved and lost
Then never to have loved at all
Even if that means that everyday
I have to watch you
crumble and fall
My heart breaks every day

Life
Debbie Brindley Aug 2017
Life rushes by
like a river raging
Everything around you
forever changing
Growing up
leaving home
Starting your own adventure
Getting a place of your own
filling it with things
you treasure
You may experience
heartache
You may
find someone to love
You may
go for midnight strolls
Admiring the stars above
Maybe marry
and
have children  
Bringing grandparents
great pleasure
A child's love is a wonderful thing
the best feeling ever
Life flies along so very fast
One day you wake  
50yrs has past
It all becomes quite a blur
So many memories
making emotions stir
Family and friends
people you hold dear
Some family and friends
no longer here
Reasons being
accidents
suicide
illness
for some it's old age
There will be good times
bad times
There's all sorts of lessons
on lifes stage
You can't always know
what life will bring
Sometimes it's so wonderful
it'll make your heart sing
But there will be times
you feel dark
empty inside
all you want to do
is lock out the world
and hide
But life's forever changing
Who knows what
the next ten years will bring
So buckle up your seatbelt
and let life do it's thing
Life is a rollercoaster
Debbie Brindley Jul 2017
Lovely little nose
Skin so soft
Long feet, long toes

Good head of hair
Rose bud lips
Content little stare

Amazing feeling
So much love
For one perfect little bub
Amazing how little babies
can make you feel

Lisa's gift of nature
Debbie Brindley Jul 2017
You lie on top of the earth
basking in the sun
Warming your flesh through
to your bone's
Sunlight blanketing
everything in it's heat
Flowers of winter are overflowing
Colors bursting through
vibrant against the  
nakedness of the tree's
The aroma of a sunny winters day
fills the air
The hum of nature all around
surrounding you with their
musical rhythms
Dragon flies
birds
bee's
butterflies
Each dancing to their own beat
The earth and sky
A haven of activity
Tranquility at its most divine
Written for my sister.
About the garden she has created
Beautiful day
Sunny skies
Happy husband
Lovely day

Buried
Debbie Brindley Jul 2017
Silence surrounds me
As I lay here beneath the earth
Surrounded by soil
Black fertile soil
Feels as if I've been here
forever trapped
Buried in the darkness
Buried by lifes burdens
If only I could reach the surface
Break through
Though to the sunshine
the fresh air
Fresh air that shall fill my lungs
Fill my lungs
and bring me back to life
To a life I once had
Life filled with color
And sounds of happiness
Instead I lay here stagnant
trapped beneath the earth
In silence
Having a hard day feeling sorry for myself :'(
