As I sit here I am waiting for Priscilla the new Fundraiser from Ty hafan to visit ;Ty hafan being our only children's hospice here in Wales and with whom I have set up a fund in Erin's name called :-'Erin Jones Friend Of Ty hafan'

We have already raised over £4,000 for these beautiful children and today we are getting our heads together to hold a concert in Erin's name.

My beautiful and sweet baby loved little ones and they all loved her in turn ;many of her nieces and nephews never got to see their Aunty but they know all about her and they all point at her photos saying; "That's Aunty Erin."

I do not have many details for this concert yet but will fill you all in and that is a promise.

If I had known years ago that I was to lose a daughter I would have imagined myself rocking to and fro in a corner but from somewhere comes this inner strength and even though she may not be here on earth she is certainly with me day in and day out.

As you all know I love nature and one haven I find solace in is Erin's garden ; looking at all the bright colours; loving all the butterflies flying around and feeling Erin in my heart and by my side.

It is from here that many of poems have flowed and I know that today she looks down so proud due to her name being connected with such a worthy charity.

I hope you enjoy the following poetry plus of course some more of my collages and I promise to return to let you know all about this forthcoming charity event.

Garden of wonder

Inviting and dear;

I sit in contentment

Loved ones so near.

x

Garden of beauty

Precious enchantment;

Wondrous sweet scents

That perfect enticement.

x

Garden of promise

Visions oh so true;

A perfect sweet haven

For me and for you.

x

Garden of hope

Our tomorrows shine bright;

You are all welcome

By day or by night.


Source

As yellow as sunshine

each moment oh so wondrous

days of true love......................................

Source

A moment so golden

rings out for us all

each lesson now learnt

days of truth...........................................


Source

As blue as the sky

cool and relaxing

flying so high

life as clear as can be................................

Source

As green as young growth

sweetly dancing

each blade of young grass

eternally treasured........................................

Source

From days gone by

moments to treasure

skipping and laughing

to Mother Nature's wonder................................


Source

The salt and the sea

remain in my heart

no matter how long

we are apart........................................


My beautiful baby Erin in her garden of love.
My beautiful baby Erin in her garden of love. | Source

A garden of wondrous colours

Is where I found my peace;

Colours of beauty and of joy

Never ever to cease.

x

Each warm colour I love

A clear vision of wonder;

Painting scenes of paradise

Each colour now brighter.

x

Let us now draw sweet laughter

Each colour from our heart

Painting each wondrous moment.

That very brand new start.

x

Our visions now to be complete

Each day brings another hue;

These colours straight from my heart

I now share with all of you.

Here I send you all loads of love from my little corner of Wales.

Awesome....your Erin will be smiling over you as you honor her and bring in funds to help others. I hope if there is a video of the concert that you can post it for all of us to enjoy.

You inspire me with your courage and love, Eddy. I am so blessed that I have gotten to know you here. And Celine did sing the songwriter's song so well...so well it made it our song. Wishing much success in the fund raising!!!

What a sweet poem and wonderful idea to hold a charity event for your daughter. You really do keep her alive in all your memories and poems. I can't imagine what that's like to lose a child, I think I would be rocking in a corner unable to move on. You are so strong-spirited and she is with you everyday. Your garden is a wonderful way to keep her close and connected. I wish you the best with the fund-raising!

Hi Eddy. Well, your strength is now showing through even more. Now you are doing something positive for the love of Erin. I am sure her garden is in full bloom at present. The pebbles look lovely and it is nice that the children are remembered in this way.

I am sure Erin and Dai as well as your dear sister are all so proud of your efforts. I wish you strength and happiness, I know there are more young ones in your family and your love has to go them all. Well done Eddy.

voted up and all.

Beautifully written and shared, Eddy! It is great you are able to share your feelings and help others through your loss. Although I can't even imagine the depth of your pain, you are dealing with it in a healty way while not harboring it inside. Your daughter would be proud of how you are handling it all...in her honor and to those children she so loved! : ) Wonderful tribute to a heart-felt cause!! Voted it up!

SO proud! i know know know that she knows, Eddy! Erin would be sooo proud of you, and not only for what you've done in her name - which is A-MA-Zing! Congratulations on hitting such a landmark!

She's proud of you also because you HAVE moved forward with your life, and instead of 'rocking in a corner' you've come OUT from that corner fighting - and making the world a better place!
