How can I help?

A poem I wrote a few months ago when a friend was at a loss how to help, unfortunately she is not in contact with me now, she couldn't watch me in pain. I know its hard to see someone you love in pain.

How can I help?

Sometimes the right words are hard to find

but its ok to listen, I don't mind

sometimes its hard to know what to do

but you know, its just good to be with you…

My near death experience

I know that a lot of you have lost loved ones to tragedies like my experience nearly was and must have wondered how your loved ones felt if they knew they were going to die. I guess maybe everyones reactions may be different but felt to share my story and how I felt when I knew I was going to die. I hope it may help in some way.

When I was 11 I was out at sea with my dinghy when a massive freak wave came towards me, I wasn't sure what to do whether to try and ride it or try and get to…

The lifeline of love

Thought I would share with you another poem I wrote,

The lifeline of love

We were knitted together as one

it was you that was my lifeline

until death came and took you away

and snapped right through our strong twine

Now I am falling so very fast

no lifeline with which to save me

I never thought the line would…

I have been through many trials and have always found strengh in God and my church family. At the moment though I am really struggling, I havn't been to church since January and have not been able to worship, I know God is with me and don't want to abandon him or my faith but there seems to be a barrier. I wondered if anyone on here has found this difficult. It…

Late February is a challenging time of year for me.  Jen’s birthday is the 23rd and serves as an annual reminder of all of the potential that was lost…Her’s (mainly), mine, the world’s honestly.  This year she would be 52…It is increasingly hard to imagine, through all of the iterations possible, what she could have become, what was to be her (significant) impact on the world.That being said, things, emotions, have largely settled down since I committed a potential version of what could have…See More
