Love Slept Here
Hello dear friends…I’m sorry once again for leaving you again but I’ve been suffering with pain in my arm and didn’t feel up to spaces…Had to go hospital last week and was in such a frenzy I gave myself a black eye, lol…I was in the shower and noticed some leaves from my plant on the shower floor, decided to pick them up and forgot about the bar halfway up, lol…Hit myself staight on the nose, hehehe…Hence my black eye….So I hope my black eye gives you all something to smile about, did miss you lots and hope you are all well and having A lovely week…Thank you all for being patient with me…Had lots of time to think and have decided to write a poem which is close to my heart named “Love Slept Here” Hope you enjoy…Sweet dreams always, much love and have a good night… xxx Lynn xxx
Love Slept Here
After the lights go out and the stars light up the sky
I question the Dear Lord why the word LOVE has to die
As each year is harder and HIS hope in humankind
Has been shattered many times and is very rare to find!
I remember when the BACKDOOR was an opening for all
And we could trust our neighbours whenever they would call
We’d all sit down together on a cold dark winter’s night
Sharing all our darkest woes and we prayed we’d be alright!
We’d weep for them and them for us if something was amiss
We’d share the contents of our food and say thank you with a KISS
The world was so much brighter and LOVE was the real KEY!
Good morn meant have a nice morning, and howdy How are thee!
We didn’t have much money but we were rich like KINGS!
Our homes a little tatty but was blessed like ANGELS WINGS
Our shoes were snug and comfy, no names like Nike or Air!
But most of all we slept at night feeling LOVE really SLEPT THERE!
So straight after the lights go out and I feel like LOVE’S gone dead
I picture family and my friends and rest my weary head
I thank the Lord for all he does and pray I can survive
As all’s not lost, there’s room for change and LOVE will be REVIVED!
