    in Mother Death Poems

    What end to life is this?
    Five months without physical contact, without a kiss.
    So many promises unable to fulfil,
    Summer walks in the garden, a Mother's Day meal.

    in Compassion Poems

    We are not the same,
    Not in creed, in colour or name.

    in Mother Death Poems

    With every beginning there has to be an end.

    They are not in the dictionary; they simply don't exist.

    For nothing is certain, nothing is clear.

    in Home Poems

    There is a sold sign on the lawn,
    In front of the house where I was born.
    Our family home where roots run deep,
    With connections to cherish, to hold, to keep.
