Time To Say Goodbye

This poem is dedicated to my friend and her children who have  recently lost, their father in a tragic accident.

I held no desire to shrivel and fade
Unable to walk or eat without aid
No wish to dribble upon my chin
whilst silently squirming
from deep within.

I have passed
please accept it
I’m no longer 
Move on
Just let me be
as this is my wish
for you to be free.

Feel my caress with the morning sun
and remember these words
direct from my tongue.
Stop crying,
I am fine
Now go... and have
a bloody good time!


  1. Very moving.

    Love it!

    This is the essence of what my brother would have said when he died.


    I am going to share this with my mum

    1. Thank you Sara, yes it is how I feel too.. Two funerals in a week one of a vibrant beautiful older woman who suffered a form of "locked in" condition in the end.. and the other, a Handsome young man with everything you could possibly want in life .. Wealthy with a young family and older children .. such an exiting existence..all gone in a second, but I know which death I would prefer

  2. Hey Ruth,
    What a moving poem...

    Sending my deepest sympathy to your friend and her family.

  3. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But
    maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  4. I think the admin of this web page is really working hard in favor of his web page,
    since here every material is quality based data.

  8. Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but when
    opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!
