About Sue Walkinshaw

Born in Devon in 1954 I am coming up for 65 years old, the mother if 8, grandmother of 30 and great grand mother of 7 with 3 more due very soon. I live with my two little dogs Tia and Poppy in a lovely little bungalow, surrounded by flowers, birds, bees and butterflies in Colchester Essex. Apart from poetry I love to knit and collect dolls.

I want to share my poems to hopefully bring comfort and understanding to people who have lost a loved one. Back in 2009 I read 2 books by Antony Borgia, "Life in the World Unseen" and "More about Life in the World Unseen" I felt the urge to turn some of the information I was reading into a poem and wrote my first poem 'Life Beyond.' When I lost my sister in 2010 it helped me so much, I knew that's where she was. I wanted to write another one, giving more information but life got in the way and then one day in 2018 I sat down one afternoon and wrote 'You Are Never Alone.' I never imagined it would be being read at my daughter's funeral 8 months later. I've since wrote a poem for her and will be submitting that for publication very soon.

    Spiritual, Loss Of A Loved One.

    in Mourning Poems

    How can I ever find the words to take away this pain?
    Our loss of you on earth is surely heaven's gain
    I know that you are happy, your suffering's gone away
    But for us that's left behind, we'll hurt forever and a day.

    Life After Death

    in Spiritual Poems about Death

    I open my eyes to a light so bright...
    Where I'm surrounded by colours, an amazing sight,
    And a beautiful Angel holds me in her arms.
    I feel safe and happy, contented and calm.

    in Spiritual Poems about Death

    I feel the warmth upon my face as I enter the land of God's good grace,
    Friends and loved ones gone before, waiting here beyond the door.
    With open arms they welcome me, amazement in my eyes they see.
    They look so well and at their best, beauty beholds them now they rest.

    I lost my beloved son two years ago this April. It seems to hurt more now than it did then; I'm so afraid he'll be forgotten. Over 800 people came through the line at the funeral home,...

Since writing this poem, my darling daughter has sadly taken her life. This poem was read at her funeral on July 16th 2019, on what would have been her 45th birthday. It will always be special to me as this is where I picture her along with my Sister Diana.

Thank you, I wrote this poem never knowing it would help so many people over the years including myself. My own daughter took her life just 3 weeks ago on June 27th, again not long after I wrote the follow up.

I have only just returned to this site and found the lovely comments. I am so happy that my poem has brought you comfort. Over five years on and I miss Diana so much. Sadly her husband joined her just three years later. I imagine them walking through this amazing place, hand in hand. My job is done xxx
