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

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

My Song
Debbie Brindley Jul 2018
Your hands and fingers
so very strong
Yet filled with tenderness
as you strummed my song
A wonderful guitarist
I loved to watch you play
As the music notes
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

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
****** me from within
The music takes 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 whole body
in the beauty
of its lyrical melody
My husband was a fabulous guitarist. I miss hearing him play

My Heart Is Breaking
Debbie Brindley Aug 2018
My heart is breaking

Through shattered shards
pockets of sadness
seep in
Darkness creeps deeper
under my skin
Run from these feelings
but go where

Can you not hear me
Tears wept silently
today life's to hard to bare

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
My dear

But be here
For you
Feeling sad

Beautiful Girl
Debbie Brindley Sep 2017
You came into my life
aged 4

Such a sweet wee 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

A Heart Filled With Love
Debbie Brindley Jul 2017
I meet a baby girl today
Who stole my heart
carried it away
All it took was to see her face
and my heart was
taken to a special place
A place filled with
love
hugs
and smiles
So much love
it stretched for miles
It's a wonderful place
where these hearts go
If your wondering how I know
Because
it's a Nana's heart
you see
And that heart filled
with so much love
Well that heart
belongs to
Me
Met my first grandbaby today. A beautiful little girl. She made my heart melt

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
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 ?#$@ 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.

My love for you
Debbie Brindley May 2017
For 15yrs we had a love
pure and true
Love so perfect
I feel bound to you
Like intertwining vines
of a wisteria
My heart shatters
a million times over
knowing you can never
be my forever

Soon the time will come
for you to leave this place
of chaos and confusion
Not knowing
what is real
or
what is delusion

We may meet again
In another time and place
Forever in my heart
You have a special space

With all that is happening
I'd  live this life
a thousand times
over
over
again

So I could have you once more
not only as my lover
but also as my friend

Broken Wings
Debbie Brindley Jun 2017
What life once was
Is life no more
Sadness came calling at the door
A story told
A tragic tale  
One that leaves you fatigued and pale

Once a social butterfly
Wings now broken and torn
Torn pieces carried away on the wind
With every piece gone you mourn

At what cost
A true love lost
Leaves ones heart
shattered and bleeding
So many emotions
you can't control
has got your head reeling

Close your eyes
make a wish
  for this life to have a happy ending
But this one wish
will dissolve like mist
For the loss and grief are still pending
Could not sleep last night.

My Broken Heart
Debbie Brindley May 2018
I cradle your love
within my heart
A perfect gentleman you were
from the very 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
   would have journeyed
into old age together
Watching our children  
their families
on journeys
to wherever

So sad that you won't be
by my side
We'd talked
often of grandchildren
watching them grow and thrive

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

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

Your Handsome Face
Debbie Brindley Jun 2017
First time I saw you
across the room
your face so handsome
it made my heart swoon
For 11yrs I admired you
from a far
Till one night while out
we meet at a bar
We talked and danced
til about 3
No one existed
it was just you and me
We moved in together
a house in the bush
it had an orchard a dam
you could even fish
Your 2 kids my 1
together makes 3
we had ourselves an instant family
Our kids rode bikes,camped
we had so much fun
Days during the summer
at the dam in the sun
It felt as if my life
had only just begun
And it all started
because you made my
heart swoon
When I saw that handsome face of yours across the room
I've known my husband 30yrs. I still think he's the most beautiful person I've ever met.

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

Aching Heart
Debbie Brindley Mar 2019
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

5 Amazing Friends
Debbie Brindley May 2017
I have a friend
She is my Forever
A friend since childhood
She's like a precious treasure
Unfortunately she lives far away
But with video chat we can talk
face to face nearly every day

I have a friend
She is my Sun
So calm and gentle
She's full of fun
When I'm feeling bleak
My mood dark as night
She comes bringing her rays of sunshine
and surrounds me with her light

I have a friend
She is my Knight In Shining Armour
A friend who's talkative and vibrant
She's a real charmer
She always seems to know when I'm feeling sad and blue
She takes me away on what we call a pampering rescue

I have a friend
She is my smile
I've had this friend for quite a while
Time will pass maybe 6months or more
Next minute she'll be at my door
With a big smile and lots of charm
ready to greet me with open arms

I have a friend, My best friend
She is my sister
If she were to ever leave
I would truly miss her
She is so full of love, support and care
and no matter what she's always there
She helps me so
and life at times isn't much fun
And one day I hope to repay her for everything she has done
If I combined together the years that I have known these ladies minus my sister it works out to be 113years.

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

Beautiful Melodies & Rock
Debbie Brindley May 2017
You sit at our kitchen table
Guitar in your hand
Playing beautiful melodies of love
And tunes from far away lands
Then at night you play with a rock band Hells Bells is their name
Music blaring
Heads are thrashing
The whole room goes insane
At the end of the night you pack up your gear
Head on out the door
Home to your sweet darling
To play your beautiful melodies once more

Sheree
Debbie Brindley May 2017
Almost a year has past since you've been gone,
I always thought when growing up you and I would go on and on,
We'll out live our husbands that's what you'd always say,
It really broke my heart the day you past away,
We were going to grow old together get a house for just
us two,
One with a big varanda and an even bigger view,
Where we'd sit in our rocking chairs and let the old yarns fly,
About memories we cherished from years gone by,
But you left me and I miss you,
You were my sister you were my friend,
The one that I'd go to if I needed to mend,
I wish I could have one minute to tell you how I feel,
I'd have taken on your pain if it had helped you to heal,
So where ever your spirit may be my message to you
Sheree is
I love you and I miss you
My sister Sheree passed away 16yrs ago

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

Missing You

I miss
your beautiful smile
it's been gone for quite a while
I miss
the special look
you have just for me
wither we're hanging with friends
or picnicking under the old oak tree
I miss
your loving touch
your loving touch
I crave so much
I miss
our long talks in bed
now I wonder
what goes on in your head
I miss
our family walks in the hills
Spotting  
kangaroos
wild flowers and
red tailed cockatoos
I miss
watching you play
with the band
up on stage
To me you looked  
OOH so grand
I miss
you playing your guitar
Sometimes I'd sit
and watch you from a far
I really wish
I could turn back time
and have the old Todd back
who was once mine

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 :'(

Sister
Debbie Brindley May 2017
I love my sister dearly
she lives with me at home
She helps me with the stress of life
so I don't have to on my own

She parts clouds
Makes the sky blue
Then to ease my pain more
adds a soft cloud or two

She's building a beautiful garden
filled with hollihocks, foxgloves and such
It has an outdoor bathroom
that I will enjoy very much

She helps keep me grounded
my feet firmly on the ground
Keeps the dark clouds away
While to my life I'm bound
While helping care for my husband, my sister has built the most beautiful sensory garden for my husband and I.
My sister's amazing and I love her dearly

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

Unconditional Love
Debbie Brindley Jun 2017
Unconditional love

Is love pure and true

Unconditional love

Is the love I have with you

Your whole heart giving

And received in return

To trust someone completely

a hard lesson learned

Not to worry about their past

Or have yours thrown in your face

To wipe the slate clean

Is the love that we all dream

To be so connected

almost reading

each others minds

Finishing each others sentences

is something we do all the time

To love someone completely

no matter how much they

change

Weight gain,gray hair, whatever

you love them just the same

People go their whole lives

trying to find unconditional love

You and I have been so lucky

and for that

I thank the heavens above
Lucky enough to have experienced
unconditional love

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.

So beautiful
So strong
The way your fingers dance

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

My grief so overwhelming
It fills me will pain
Can you hear me
Do you understand
Not so long ago you rocked to the beat of a band
Slowly you turn toward me
Your face a canvas without expression
Your behavior  
Your speech
Filling with indiscretion
Show me laughter
A reaction
So I know how you feel
My life changing so rapidly
It feels surreal
I love you with all my heart

Forever
This illness that is yours
Is something I Endeavor
When you love someone
Love them with your whole heart

Precious Memories

The song of a magpie
Brings special memories to me
Staying at Nana's house
The sound of the sea
My sister & I
our cousin Johnny
Playing chasey  
Hide and seek
The wind in our hair
There were gardens of roses
Pathways everywhere
Summers always mild
You could feel the ocean breeze
Wanting to play more
When Nana called us
in for tea
Hugs from Nana
As we were tucked in tight
Into our beds to sleep for the night
I love to hear the Magpies sing
And appreciate the beautiful memories they bring
Memories  from when I was around

Pain
Debbie Brindley May 2017
There is a cravice
in my cheeks
on which a tide of tears
has flowed upon
The person who once was
is now gone
He is the stranger
before me
fragmented and torn
Lifes full of harsh lessons
we must learn
My heart has shattered
into a million pieces
Tearing through my flesh
it burns
Will this pain subside
I feel so
withered
so tired
battered
bruised
This is one fight
I shall lose
I can't fix
what is happening
So the cravice will grow
What lesson will I learn
I do not know
But one day soon
I will have to let you go

I Wish

I wish
I wish
upon a star
That I could gather you
in my arms
and take you far
Far far away
On a cloud made for two
A special cloud
for me
and for you
Away from these lands
filled with anguish and pain
To lands with no illness
where you'd have good health again
To lands where together
we'd grow
old
and grey
As husband and wife
forever we'd stay
Wish we could float away on clouds

As We Dance In The Meadow
Debbie Brindley Oct 2021
Swaying in each others arms
Dancing cheek to cheek
Sweet lyrics whispered  
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


As the hues of colour fad away
and darkness descends on this beautiful day
Incased in your arms is where I shall stay


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

Lisa's gift of nature

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

We lived in an old home
with a
big fire place
Perfect for our children
who could run and play
in its big open space
Their laughter wonderful
as they rode though the bush
They'd climbed tress
build cubbies
go camping
do whatever they wished
You could even drop a line
in the dam
and try to catch a fish
Bush out the back
Orchard out the front
The kids would canoe
Dive off the pontoon
Even go on a big frog hunt
Life in the hills was perfect
an awsome place
for our children to play
Days swimming
and snockling  
Wanting their friends
to come and stay
It's a place they hold dear
to their hearts
It was really sad to leave
and make a new start
But they have wonderful memories
of the old house in the bush
I'm so glad
our children grew up there
and could do
whatever they wished
A peom for our children
So many wonderful memories
were made while living
at the old house in the bush

There's times
of extreme happiness
Lifes filled with
song
dance
and sound

There's times
of extreme anger
Please keep your eyes to the ground

There's times
his face            diStoRts
     with        
    HOSTILITY            
He's so filled with rage

His behavior he can not help
His behavior he can not gauge

There's times
of great confusion
About his life
he hasn't got a clue

There's times
of not remembering
The face of his best friend
and
his mother too

There's times
his body aches
from the constant walking
he must do

There's times
of great fatigue
from taking care of you

There's times
people tell me
I should put him in a home
But how do I do that and leave him there alone

Anyway

that's not going to happen

Cause he's  staying right here

With his wife
who loves him

and his
sister in law
who holds him dear

Your World
Debbie Brindley Jul 2017
You live in a world
That is your own
Filled with love and support
Your never alone

Like the Enchanted Rose
In cased in glass
With every petal that falls
A layer of you is lost
The person you were
has payed a huge cost

This journey is something
we have to endeavor
It's a road that you and I shall travel together

We're learning skills to cope
Living day by day
We have my sisters help
Making hard days seem ok

If you have that special someone
in your life
Be it your partner, lover, husband
or wife
If you really do love them tell them so
Don't let a day go by without letting  them know
Never take for granted the one you love
If your both healthy and happy
Thank the lord above
Never take anyone you love for granted

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

Memories intact

Amongst   the  chaos  in   your   head
     
                                           

Your words sit silent in a mouth which no longer speaks

Frustration and anger

Show

Behind coNfuSEd eyes  

Features at times expressionless
A canvas blank
Void of colours

Take my hand
I shall guide you
Watch out for you
Protect you
Be your voice
So you are heard
Understood
Cared for
Loved
My husbands illness

".                          If
                         your
                 feeling really
            sad  let  your  tears
          go  it  will  ­make  you
          feel  so  much  better
           to open up the flood
              gates and just let
                    them flow

Broken
Debbie Brindley Jan 2019
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 :)

Unnecessary Pain
Debbie Brindley May 2017
You'd known each other a few years
With each other you were at ease
You decided you wanted more
Entering her world like a cool
summer breeze
Time spent together
was a soft glowing light
Sweet words whispered
walks hand in hand
long conversations into the night
You made her feel safe and secure
with your charisma and charm
Introducing her to your family
Walking in arm in arm
When asked to meet her family
it caused you stress and alarm
Insecurities got the better of you
You panicked about what to do
So any sort of relationship
was shut down, snuffed out
out of the blue
Life's far to short and this I know
Not to take the reins of life and give somthings ago
People who like you for who you are
do not come round to often
So the dislike and disapproval of yourself needs to somewhat soften  
You put her in a dismal place
 extinguishing that flame
You didn't call, didn't text
you did nothing
So she thought she was to blame
You should have thought long and hard before saying you'd give
things ago
Instead you came in
Made her heart flutter
Then left her feeling low
With age does come wisdom. Unfortunately for some not in areas of life

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

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
