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.

    in Courage Poems

    It's only through mistakes we make
    We learn where we went wrong.
    It's only when we're far from home
    We realize where we belong.

    So much truth in this poem. Liked the rhythm and rhyme. We have done so much harm to the environment because of our greed. Do not know what the future has in store for us.

Dear Michael, I'm so sorry for your loss. My wife Ann was 63 when she was taken from me. We were looking forward to our retirement years, which sadly were not meant to be. It's now 9 years, but her memory is still so much alive. I miss her every day. No one will ever take her place.
