About John Peter Read

I became a member of FamilyFriendsForum in 2011 one year after my wife Ann passed away.
I share my thoughts through poetry, it helps with the pain of grieving.
God Bless.

A poems but a Whisper
That lingers on the Breeze.
A few unspoken Words
Appear like falling Leaves.

A tapestry of Memories
Dreams that haunt the Mind
Jumbled words scrambled Thoughts
Borrowed from the passing of Time.

John Read.

    You were my Shelter

    My calm on stormy Seas.

    The years are taking their toll.
    Another birthday has now arrived.
    People you meet say you're still looking young.
    With a smile, you wink and say, "Nice try."

So sorry to hear of your loss, Gary. At least I can look you in the eye and say I know how you're feeling. Without my soulmate life has no meaning. It's the memories that keep me going.
