And make you as snug as a bug,
When you feel down,
Just think of me,
And I will make you warm inside.

So tonight I’ll be the one you miss,
When you close your eyes,
To go to sleep,
Let it be me that stands in your dreams.

Unlike every Valentines Day before,
Let us spend the night together,
Let us just sleep,
And forever be in each others arms.

Some rice on the side,
And a pudding for the night.

2019 Christmas Countdown 24: Get Excited


There are traditions to uphold,
And new ones to make,
A Christmas tea to be had,
And cakes to be baked,
Movies to watch,
And board games to be played,
And that one tradition,
We all insist has just been made.
***
Bit after the excitement,
It’s time to sleep,
Before he sees you,
When he creeps,
And drops down the chimney,
With sooty foot,
To leave the presents,
Where the tree is stood.
***
Sleep well in the thought,
That Santa will come,
His gifts will bring joy,
To everyone,
And make sure to leave,
One thing out for he,
A drink of milk or maybe some brandy.

2019 Christmas Countdown 23: Reindeer

Down on the roof,
Each house he will visit,
Ever quiet and still,
Reindeer silent on hoof.

And that you will always be there.
So happy Yuletide to you and yours,
Wrap up warm and don’t let christmas pass in a blur.

Advent 2019: 4 Peace


At this time of darkness,
Where the nights feel never ending,
And the world feels broken,
We can often forget our humanity.
***
We try and push the dark,
Into a space in the back of our minds,
And keep thoughts of wars,
Suffering and pain for the new year.

So we light the last candle,
And bring to our minds forefront,
The thoughts of peace,
And what part we play in the world.

There’s one week to go,
Until the big day,
And in that time,
There is a lot to do.
***
The schools must finish,
With hyper kids,
Leaving for the holidays,
And dreaming of their presents.
***
And don’t Forget,
That last little bit,
Of wrapping to do,
For under the tree.
***
That and the turkey,
You need to get,
From the store,
That is getting hectic.
***
But in that time,
Remember to enjoy,
Some of the cheer,
And maybe some wine.

2019 Christmas Countdown 17: Morning Frost


Crunch Crunch,
The ground beneath my feet,
Crunch Crunch,
The grass frozen to peat,
Crunch Crunch,
The frozen washed sheets,
Crunch Crunch,
The absolute void of heat,
Of the cold morning frost.

2019 Christmas Countdown 16: Snowman


Soundless as it falls,
Nothing is shown until it thaws,
Ominous in its covering,
Winter sight across the and,
Mountains white in the distance,
And perfect for making,
Non other than a snowman.

Advent 2019: 3 Joy


It’s the season of Joy,
Throughout the world,
Today we light,
The pink candle,
Think about joy,
The shepherd of mankind.
***
But while there is joy,
Spend a thought,
For the less unfortunate,
Who may not be joyous,
And may be under,
A dark cloud.
***
Outstretch your hand,
And gift some joy,
If you can make,
Just one person smile,
You can claim success,
Today and always.
