I Will Always Be There

There is a time in our life

when we all need someone,

someone to love, to hold, to laugh with.

Well I will be there.

When the pain in your heart

is crying out to be loved,

to be cared for unconditionally.

Well I will be there.


When you want to share all of the good times,

have fun -

sweet conversation.

Well I will be there.

When the doubts in your mind

are more confusing,

than the feelings in your heart.

And when all around

cannot see you for who you are.

Well I will be there.


When all around seem to have abandoned you

and for your joyous times and heartaches,

a shoulder for support

and a friendly ear -

A love no one can understand.

Well I will be there.

Open up your mind

and open out your arms,

as I offer you a heart for all hearts.

We are two of a kind

a rare genuine breed.

And I will always be there.

    This was one of my first poems that I had written. I wrote this in the late 70's when everyone soon came to discover, how Ireland was tarnished with the politics and troubles it was dealt.

    Halloween is one of the few fun celebrations, and although we in the UK are not quiet in the same festive spirit as in the USA, we are slowly coming round to how our American friends celebrate

  • The Man On The Moon Has Gone

    This is just a silly poem, one that got my nephews and nieces asking all sort of silly question, but laughed at the very end.

i am sorry to hear about the decision you are going to have to make, there is nothing worse and sad than losing a pet, your best friend and companion, but I trust you will have lots of happy thoughts and memories to look back on
