About Ann D. Stevenson

I began writing when I joined a Writing for Well-being Course. It was at a difficult time, as my husband had recently been diagnosed with cancer. I discovered that I really enjoyed writing, especially poetry. I then received a further boost to my morale when Family Friends began to publish one or two of my poems. Family Friends really is an appropriate title, as it’s such a friendly site.

I am retired and living in The Cotswolds in UK.

    infused in my head.

    Losing Someone You Love

    in Loss Poems

    Why did you have to go away
    and leave me with a broken heart.
    I prayed and prayed that you would stay,
    why did you have to go away.

    Sometimes Death Can Be A Release

    A whispered breath
    and then your soul
    flew, silent and swift,
    like a passing owl.

I just love this poem - anyone who writes poetry will recognise the feelings described.

I love your poems and would like to know more about the person who writes them - any chance of a bio? Very best wishes, Ann

I was very moved by your story. I'm quite sure your mother knew how much you loved her, some things don't need to be said. I think the hardest thing when someone you love very much dies is to look back and remember the good times and not dwell on the ending. My thoughts are with you and I wish you well. -Ann
