Dyslexia Is A Blessing Not A Curse


Dyslexia has been a blessing not a curse.
It has made me infinitely better not worse.
I see the world beyond the words.
And feel the life beyond the verse.
My language skills are not reversed.
And although my spellings look diverse.
My knowledge of the language is not inverse.

My Love For You


My love for you has only grown,
Over the years and over the miles,
I have never stopped loving you.
My heart has been yours,
Since we first said hello,
Since you first let me know.
And after all this time,
You will understand,
The way my heart demands.
Some would have given up,
And some think I’m silly,
But I still love you.
My heart calls for you,
And sings continually,
I Love You…

What’s In A Name


A name holds the key,
To another persons ID,
The information you need,
If you want to succeed,
A way to know someone,
Out of a crowed of everyone,
And importantly it’s you,
When you are asked who,
And to me it denotes,
I’m the Pesky Poet.

You Are Wonderful


Hey you there,
Yes you,
With eyes on this page.
You are special,
Don’t forget,
That you are loved today.
You are wonderful,
You are,
And don’t listen to naysayers.
You are amazing,
It’s true,
My work lives through you.
There is only,
One you,
Live as the true you.
I am blessed,
With love,
That you read my work.

Thank you. Xxx

I Left A Part Of Me On The West Coast


No matter how cold,
Or how harsh the weather,
Even with the midges,
And the quiet shelter,
The west coast calls me.

Between the rocks,
Hidden in the glens,
Waiting to be found,
Are all the people,
That make up the coast.

No matter the hustle,
And the inevitable bustle,
Of each city around,
There is a calm waiting,
Up on the west coast.

Where the people are friendly,
And the towns are few,
Where the lines with nature,
Are all but blurred,
You will find a peaceful life.

And when you have gone,
You will wish to go back,
Knowing forever more,
You will have left a part of you,
Up on the west coast.

Achmelvich Bay


There is a bay,
Miles away,
Over the hills,
And down the braes,
In the Highlands,
A world away.
***
Where the sun,
Wind and rain,
Falls in a one,
All in a day,
On the beach,
Of Achmelvich bay.

Love For The Now


We wait for love,
Until we can wait no more,
We don’t look at what we’ve got,
Instead we look for what could be in store.
***
Life is simpler,
If you love what you have,
And don’t think about what you want,
But be content in the now and thank for the tomorrow.
***
Grab your friends,
Remind them you are there,
You will love them no matter what,
And will never be unreachable when they need you most.
