  1. 21. A Helping Hand

    There are times when the touch of a fellow human being can be very comforting

    You hold my hand,
    I, like a child, feel safe.
    You hold my hand,
    I feel a warm embrace.

    Ann, all of your work is so special, amazing, and creative. I am so jealous at how you can convey a deep, powerful message in so few words. I tend to ramble on and on, and I literally can't...

  2. 22. One Kind Word

    One kind word can change a thought,
    It can change an opinion,
    Change a mind.

  3. 23. Coronavirus - Have You Seen

    At 8:00pm on Thursday, March 26, 2020, people across the whole of the U.K. stood at their windows or stepped outside their homes to applaud the National Health Staff who are working so hard in difficult conditions to care for those suffering from the Coronavirus.

    Have you seen the doctors who hardly get to sleep?
    From sad weary eyes, silent tears they weep.
    They're battling to save hundreds of lives,
    Yet see so many dying right before their eyes.

  4. 24. Accepting One Another

    I wrote this poem after recent events in the UK.

    We are not the same,
    Not in creed, in colour or name.
    Yet together we inhabit this earth,
    We should value each other's worth.

  5. 25. Beauty And Scars

    I wrote this poem because of my compassion for people who are suffering. I have been writing poetry for over 50 years, and most of it is about caring for others.

    Close your eyes and picture beauty.
    What is it that you see?
    A baby, a mountain, a river?
    Or maybe an old oak tree?

  6. 26. Through My Eyes

    This is the way I see my son compared to how strangers see him. Sometimes they judge him with just one look when there's so much more to him. My beautiful and perfect ASD, ADHD, SPD son.

    Through my eyes
    All I see
    Is a perfect little boy
    Staring back at me

  7. 27. A New Year Prayer

    A wish for all those who aid us or who are in peril whilst performing their duties

    To those who partied around the world
    Or those that lay in bed and curled
    up to the one they hold so dear
    I wish you all Happy New year.

  8. 28. An Admirable Woman

    • By Crystal Foy
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A poem about a special, amazing and righteous woman.

    There is a woman who always keeps her head up high.
    Her eyes sparkle like a bright star in the sky.
    She has the stamina, beauty, and courage that one would admire,
    Even the love and happiness one inspires.

  9. 29. Take A Stand

    Stop and look, listen, see, and hear what's happening all around. Don't walk past. This earth could heal if we took a stand.

    Sometimes the light will shine through.
    It makes its way to the surafce to show you
    That within all this mess and chaos,
    There is still a spark to help us when we're at a loss.

  10. 30. Beyond The Purse

    Talk of giving, and what comes to mind is money - rightly so. But money isn't everything. I've been blessed on many occasions by people who didn't even buy me a thing or dash me money. These kind folks - bless their hearts, made me realize there are things we can give that could mean so much more to others than money.

    It's sometimes easy to think
    We have nothing to give;
    Yet we often have more to offer
    Than we tend to believe.

  11. 31. Trust?

    • By Trish
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2011

    I have really close friends that are afraid of opening up because of the life that they lived. This is for them in the hope that they can one day open up.

    After I knew the person you showed the world,
    I searched for the person you are.
    He was nowhere around
    Where was he to be found?

  12. 32. Caring

    • By June Atkinson
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2020

    I hope everyone struggling gets comfort from this poem. Life is a journey, not a destination. The destination comes to us all. The gift of life is to be treasured.

    Be kind and caring in all that you do
    Because no one knows what another goes through.
    Be kind and caring in all that you say.
    If you can't be kind, sit down and pray.

  13. 33. Remember Then

    • By Catherine Cordeiro
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2015

    My boyfriend's mom is in her nineties and is forgetful and fearful. I have known them for 15 years. It is very hard to watch the change in her and how my boyfriend is trying to deal with it.

    When you feel bad for what you say
    Remember your mom wasn't always this way.
    She is your mom and used to be
    A woman who cared, much like me.

  15. 35. Who To Be...

    The fast-paced lives we lead can often mean that we neglect or don't give the proper attention to the beautiful things right before our eyes. This was my story until a chapter in my life, which will remain unwritten here, caused me to stop and reflect. It's not about how much time we get; it's about what we do with the time we're given.

    Each day unveils an opportunity,
    What sort of person do I want to be?
    Focus on myself, look out for number one?
    Regret is what lingers when all's said and done.

  16. 36. A World Of Caring

    Human history has been filled with acts of savage cruelty driven by hate, greed, apathy, and ignorance. Yet, this is countered by the nobler, gentler human acts of compassion, kindness, empathy, sympathy and humanity. The Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" character, Gandalf, stated: "Some believe only great power can hold evil in check. But that is not what I have found. I have found that it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love."

    Could there be a world of caring?
    Offering our goodwill and sharing
    Makes this world a finer place.
    Pitying the broken of our race

  17. 37. Afterwards

    • By Wilton Parr
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2009

    I love good poetry. I love the arts. I believe in the sanctity of life of all creatures. I have doubts about Bible teachings but Love of God and my fellow man are the two things I know, (and all I need to know). (Keat's Grecian Urn)

    When word comes that you are gone
    what will be said of you?
    Those who only knew you casually
    will say charitable platitudes.

  18. 38. Free Hugs

    • By Brittni Thomas
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2015

    The touch that connects us all. Some do anything to get it, like hold up signs and walk around the street offering a one. This is one poem that sums it all up. Read on...

    It's the touch that gives you comfort.
    It's the touch that makes you feel.
    It's something that no one else can ever steal.
    It's the sweetest human contact for the body and the mind.

  19. 39. Looking Out For Others

    My mother was bed ridden for 20 years, completely helpless with arthritic pain. She never complained. I had the complete care of her many of those years. It gave me the understanding to volunteer in rest homes because I knew what even little things meant to her. I'm 97 now and had to give up my drivers license and volunteering 6 years ago, but the thousands of hours I spent in rest homes are special memories.

    What does it take to be a volunteer?
    Must you travel afar, or is there someplace near
    Where there is a need that is evident--
    Where someone would think you were heaven sent

  20. 40. The Lost Soul

    I wrote this about a homeless man I used to see on my way to work every day. I later found out more about who he was from people in the neighborhood who knew him before he fell on hard times. It was a very sad tale and made me realize we should be careful how we judge others.

    Seven AM and I sat at the light,
    Watching the train chugging by.
    A day like the rest, on the way to my job,
    Just routine with no feeling inside.
