Poem for the bereaved and remembering loved ones lost

I Not long ago, I attended the funeral of a friend. This experience got me thinking about the nature of death, and so I wrote a poem for the bereaved.

I hope the words in the poem will offer comfort to those experiencing the distress of losing a loved one. I know from personal experience, few things in life are harder to bear.

Losing a loved one leaves a hole in our lives that can never be filled. So, it’s always a shock, however much it’s expected. Suddenly that person has gone, and we’d give anything to spend a few more minutes with them, if only to say all the things we wish we’d said. 

Certainly, it takes time and a period of adjustment before we gradually learn to cope without them. 

We never get over losing someone, of course, but we do learn to live with it over time. That’s the nature of human existence. We adapt to our circumstances, and we learn to cope as best we can. 

It’s that feeling that our loved one’s gone that’s the hardest part to bear, or so it seems.

With death, naturally, we think in terms of a loved one having gone. However, as I sat there in the chapel, I realised that death is only the release of someone’s spirit, and that spirit will always be there, floating somewhere in the breeze.

If we close our eyes and think of them, they’ll always be there in our mind’s eye, smiling at us. 

Knowing we can always see them in this way is a great comfort, I believe. Certainly, it is for me.

Life’s hard, and one of the saddest things about getting older is the frequency with which we find ourselves attending funerals. However, if we’ve been lucky enough to know good people, then just knowing we have a way of seeing them again is reassuring to me.

2 poems for the homeless and less fortunate

POEMS FOR THE HOMELESSI was in central London some time ago, and I couldn’t help but feel sorry for those who are homeless on our streets.

We live in difficult times, and it’s always good to remember those less fortunate than ourselves.

On my journey home, I wrote the following two poems for the homeless:

I hope you like them both.

Christmas Poem: Making memories that will last

Christmas PoemToday, I offer you a Christmas poem.

For those who celebrate it, Christmas is a very special time of the year. Not just Christmas Day, but the whole of December is taken up with preparing for the big day and spending time with family and friends.

It is particularly magical if you have young children. They look forward to it, they enjoy all the preparations, and they spend endless hours deciding what they’d like from Santa Claus.

And come Christmas Eve, they are bursting with excitement and anticipation and can barely close their eyes to sleep.

One year, we were away for Christmas, staying with my parents in another city. My son was most concerned about this situation because he thought Santa wouldn’t know where he was and, therefore, he’d miss out on his Christmas gifts.

Well, Santa doesn’t work that way. Young Philip had been good all year, so Santa made sure he found him.

And in the early hours of Christmas morning, a happy little boy was keen to reassure his parents that he’d not been forgotten.

Today’s Christmas poem remembers that Christmas long ago. It’s how the memories we cherish are made.

3 philosophical poems to get you thinking

PHILOSOPHICAL POEMSToday I thought I’d share three original poems I wrote recently.

Both are original, and both reflect how I see the world.

Enjoy them, and please feel free to share them.

In particular, if you could share them on Pinterest for me, that would be helpful.

Philosophical Poems:

1. Opportunity Poem:

Life is tough, and it’s easy to believe that there’s no hope. It’s easy to think that your life can’t get better.

However, in life, there will always be an endless stream of opportunities.

People will always have problems, and providing solutions to those problems can be a great way to make money.

So, instead of accepting your lot in life, seize the day and create the life you want.

Here is my philosophy neatly summarized in a poem.

OPPORTUNITY POEM

2. Another Opportunity Poem:

If other people can seize opportunities, so can you. Yes, it’s not easy. However, it can be done, and people do. So can you!

Another Opportunity Poem

3. Judgement Poem

None of us can know the personal battles others are fighting. So never be too quick to judge.

Unless you’ve walked two miles in someone’s shoes, give them the benefit of the doubt.

Offer your support, not your judgment.

Again, here is my philosophy neatly summarized in a poem.

Does voting make a difference?

DOES VOTING MAKE A DIFFERENCE?Democracy is a fine thing, or so they say. However, does voting make a difference? I mean, a real difference.

I guess the supplementary question is: What do we mean by difference?

For me, making a difference would mean making life better for the majority of people, particularly ordinary working people.

Well, on that definition, in my experience, rarely does voting make any real difference at all.

The rich always seem to do well, but ordinary people just struggle. And that struggle appears to be getting harder, particularly for young people.

The State of Politics:

The current state of politics is not impressive. Quite the contrary, in fact.

Ideas currently being promoted appear to be insane. Certainly, they have nothing to do with improving the lives of the majority.

It seems most politicians are focused on further improving the lives of the wealthy few at the expense of ordinary people.

The Puppet Masters:

And there’s another question that crosses my mind frequently these days. Who is actually in charge?

Is it the elected government, or are there individuals behind the scenes who make the real decisions? I mean, individuals who control and manipulate politicians and events.

Judging by the evidence before us in recent years, you would have to believe there are puppet masters who really pull the strings.

Voting Poems:

So, dear reader, what do you think? Am I wrong?

Well, while you consider that question, here are two original poems that sum up my current view of politics and the voting system.

1. Voting:

2. The Puppet Masters:

A poem about faith to get you thinking

POEM ABOUT FAITHToday, dear reader, I offer you an original poem about faith. Faith is often dismissed as being no longer relevant. I think that’s a mistake.

Consider for a moment the profound role of religious faith in our lives.

I’m sure you know that life is complex, and it’s filled with challenges and the emotional strain of dealing with other people.

Faith is like a lighthouse in the storm. It guides us and helps us avoid crashing onto the rocks. It’s a beacon of light that shines through the darkest nights, reminding us that even amid turmoil, there is a way forward.

Faith gives us hope and comfort, even in our darkest hours when everything seems bleak. It’s the assurance that no matter how tough today might be, there’s a purpose, a plan, and brighter days ahead.

In times of trial, faith is an asset that can make all the difference.

Now there are many religious faiths and I think they all serve the same purpose. Put simply, they help us cope with life. Whichever one you believe is entirely up to you. As long as it helps you.

Without further ado, here’s today’s original poem about faith.
