A Fountain of Affection



Whether it be family or friends

Never treat them as bookends

Keep them close in your heart

Never from their love depart

A fountain of affection and care

With you they will gratefully share

You mean more than you’ll ever know

Even if occasionally they might not show

How special and treasured you are

Much about you they certainly admire

You have much to offer them all

Cherished words shared that enthrawl

It may seem insignificant and natural to you

The little acts of kindness you do

That add up to mountains full of feeling

You are always delightful, endearing

Oh that I were a reader of minds

Able to read between all the lines

Of what is truth and fiction for sure

As many lies perpetrated as pure

Indeed I might find out painful truths

Of what people think of personal views

But the road to being self-aware

Is littered with potholes takes much care

To reach the other side together in one piece

Mindful informed knowledge increased












My first thought was flippant, “Of all the things I miss the most, I miss my mind.” An oldy but a goody. Snickers loudly.

For many, Christmas is a time of family, friends, togetherness, sharing and involvement.

This ode is for those who have someone missing.

I look for you and you’re not there

A distant memory now filled with care

Oh how we loved laughed and joked

Moments in time quickly evoked

By songs or artists equally shared

A shadow of your smile lingers, flared

Long since forgotten any contretemps

Only distant thoughts of attempts

Memories made to warm the hearts

Gathered together like puzzle parts

Placed together to form a picture

Complete with form and structure

A delightful moment in time together

All the more special such an adventure

To be recalled upon a moment’s notice

Your presence in my life a bonus

You will never go missing my friend

For recollections of you forever penned

In songs and games and many refrains

Long remembered you shall remain
