Hello again dear friends…At last I have done another poem with Christmas in mind…It’s getting cold now and let’s not forget to feed our wildlife as without our help they may die…Also think of the needy this Christmas, please don’t pass them by without a thought for what they are going through…My new poem is named… An Angel’s New Wings…Much love as always, hope you enjoy…xxx Lynn xxx
An Angel’s New Wings
Twas a cold winters morning, the trees stripped and bare
A sweet little robin with family to care
The humans forgotten to spare them some scraps
The sweet little robin her memory does lapse!
Up high in the tree tops three babies now cry
Their Mama forgetting her young way up high
Her tummy now empty her strength starts to fail
Laid still in the courtyard the skies start to hail!
A hobo was passing with morsel in hand
His tummy was empty as he fell to the ground
He gazed at the robin with compassion and love
Then gave her his morsel thanking God up above!
No hailstone did enter the ground where she slept
As an Angel in Heaven took pity and wept
His tears full of kindness did fall where she lay
The sweet little robin now wakes Christmas day!
Up high in the tree tops four robins now grow
With thanks to the hobo and the love he did show
No longer a human but an Angel with wings
Who looks after nature with a heart which does sing!
Hello each, as Christmas is almost here I wish to share another poem with you all…I wrote this poem back in 2007 when I was on WLS but for some reason it didn’t arrive here with my other work. It’s title is ‘The Warmth Of A Beggar’ Wishing each a Happy Christmas…Much Love… xxx Lynn xxx
A warmth envelopes us as Christmas draws near
This spiritual season makes Angels appear
They sit on your shoulders and tell you it’s time
To dig deep in your pockets to make the world fine!
Sometimes you may pass a man on the street
And look in disgrace at the filth on his feet
With rags on his back and a cap on the ground
Pleading for help, without making a sound!
Try not to judge and walk in his shoes
Just live like this person with nothing to lose
Feeling the winter and shivering with cold
No roof on your head but a cap you must hold!
The Angels are watching to see what you do
They sit on your shoulder to be nearer to you
“It’s Christmas! They whisper, Please don’t walk by.”
Praying you’ll hear their words which they cry!
Weep for the unfortunate, and show them you care
And act with compassion for the needy out there
Give them some hope and help them get through
Merry Christmas to all, may Angels work with you!

1 John 3:17
King James Version (KJV)
17 But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
Hello friends…Just to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and to share a piece of my heart with you…At this time of year which should be a happy time I feel like there’s more which could be done to for the homeless who just need a chance to help them get through. I know there are con artists which use the homelessness as a ploy to deceive others but why should they suffer through their ignorance!!!…Quite a few years back I remember hearing of a homeless man who was due to move into self contained quarters within weeks but sadly was found frozen to death outside a shop entrance…It was written in the paper “When you’ve been living on the streets for so long you lose your dignity and feel unwanted and unloved!”…My new poem is dedicated to each of these people…Hence
The Gathering Of Angels
Much Love To You Always…xxx Lynn xxx
The snow kissed the Earth on a cold Winter’s day
A man on a bench dressed in rags starts to pray
These words did I hear as I passed slowly by
“Dear Lord hear my prayer as it’s now time to die!”
Then I listened with envy at what he next said
“Thanks for the stars which give light on my bed
Also for the friendship of the creatures so small
And forgiving my enemies when they have been cruel!”
His hands looked so cold with a hint of mid blue
And I hoped with my heart to help him get through!
My eyes felt so moist then I let out a sigh
A stranger to him yet he said “Please don’t cry!”
“Come sit little one for there’s room on this seat
Take my last bread which I beg you to eat!
Please take my cloak as this day is real cold
Then go to your home as your parents may scold!”
I whispered “Come hither, come home with me
Lets fly up to Heaven take my hand come and see!
The Lord has been waiting for your safe return
And has instructed an Angel to take his Son home!”
He reached for my hand with such trust and belief
No more was he cold and his heart felt no grief
As a rich man now enters in Heaven above
And the Angels all gather to bless him with LOVE!

35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;
36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?
38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39
Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’
40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least
of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
Hello again each…As you already know I’ve really had a setback in life with losing my Granddaughter to SIDS, it’s really hit me hard and to be honest I try to keep myself busy in hope to take the pain away…Last week my Sister’s Grandson passed away also at the age of 20 years old, I feel her pain as I’m still feeling mine and this poem is also for her loss too…We all mourn in so many different ways but my way to deal with it is to put it into poetry…I pray that each of your burdens are small and always remember the ones you have lost with fondness and love…My new poem is titled “No Chance” Much love always and thinking of you…xxx Lynn xxx
No chance to share your Birthdays
Or the chance to see you grow
No chance to hold you in my arms
Or to say that I miss you so
No chance to see you fall in love
And to hear you say I do
All I can hope is that you know
That Grandma still loves you!
No chance my heart will ever heal
Or know what plan God’s made
All I can do is hope and pray
That through him your life is saved
No chance that I will ever forget
The time that we shared together
Albeit short but there is no chance
I’ll forget you, never, EVER!!!
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
Another week has passed by and another day nearer to my Granddaughter’s funeral which will be on Wednesday…Sometimes I just sit and think of why this had to be…All I know is without my faith I’d have nothing to hold on to as life can cause such heartbreak…I hope by putting my thoughts in poetry it will help others get by and overcome those obstacles which get in life’s way…My new poem is named…I’ll Be With You Tomorrow…For my little Angel…xxx Danikka-Rae xxx
Will you wait a while longer
For us to unite
As a Passport To Heaven
Is nowhere in sight
It hurts me to leave you
With strangers you see
But the Dear Lord has made
Other plans we can’t see!
I promise you sweetheart
You’ll be missed by us all
As life isn’t easy
And the tears often fall
I pray from my heart
That the Angels above
Treasure each moment
Now they have you to love!
It may seem like forever
And I’ll try to be strong
Until we’re together
As our love is our bond!
I can’t tell you for certain
But I hope and I pray
I’ll be with you Tomorrow
Or even better still this DAY!
King James Version (KJV)
18 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
At times when there’s negativity all around you and you’re feeling like you’re world is crumbling I try my best to put a reason why…This poem is for my Beautiful Granddaughter Danikka-Rae…Perhaps There Is A Reason
Perhaps There Is A Reason
Perhaps there is a reason why you’re no longer here
I cannot help but question as reasons bring me fears
A little dot upon the Earth not getting chance to grow
Perhaps there is a reason? But we will never know!
Perhaps there is a reason why life can be so cruel
I wish I had the answers but we can’t make the rules!
I’ll send my tears to God above so he can feel my pain
Perhaps there is a reason why you could not remain!
Perhaps there is a reason the hurt we all go through
The Dear Lord gave us time to know an Angel just like you
You lit my world and made it bright by coming here to stay
Perhaps there IS A REASON! And it’s one last breath away!

For Our Beautiful Granddaughter Danikka-Rae
R.I.P Beautiful Angel
Your time was brief but you’ve left your handprint in our hearts
Hello again…It’s been a while since I last came on but I could do with some company right now…My beautiful Granddaughter passed away Monday morning and I feel at my wits end…As each of you know I put my feelings the best way I know into poetry so I wrote this poem from my heart and wish to dedicate it to Danikka-Rae, hence…“Grandma’s Lullaby” R.I.P little Angel
In dreams I hold you every night
Whilst Angels go to sleep
To sing you Grandma’s lullaby
And caress your tiny feet
I’d put your head upon my heart
And hope that I could stay
Cos Grandma cannot find her smile
Since The Lord took you away!
In dreams I’d watch you take first step
So you don’t have to fall
And hear you call my name aloud
Whilst you are really small
My heart will fill with pride and do
Somersaults and splits
That’s why Grandma cant wait to sleep
So her heart no longer rips!
In dreams I’d watch you while you grow
And wouldn’t want to leave
As Grandma needs to be right near
So she no longer grieves
At night time when she is all alone
Her mind begins to stray
So she dreams of you right back again
So she can give you love each day!
