I Sit And I Write…

I sit and I write,
these words keep falling,
down onto the page of this book that I’m holding.
Words fill this place, thoughts in every space,
drowning in noise, I need to get things straight.

But, I sit and I write,
all these words moving,
around and around, never sure where we’re going.
Sometimes I get there and sometimes I don’t,
there’re many dead ends at the end of these notes.

Still, I sit and I write,
I just keep going,
words storming, forming, into something worth saying.
There’s a brand new dawn here, something much more here.
I use these words to make things more clear.

So, I sit and I write,
doesn’t matter the direction,
as long as you and I make some kind of connection.
Inspiration, feeling, distraction, emotion,
this fleeting notion.
That you were here and you heard,
some of these fallen down, mixed up words.

Yes, it matters that you’re here and it matters that you came, it matters that you listened to things that I had to say.

Because this is my up, this is my down, this is my smile and this is my frown. This is my journey and this is my fight.

So I sit…

And I write…

Mind How You Go….

For my Daughter, who starts school this September….

Open your book, it’s Chapter one,
a whole new world has just begun.
As you turn each page & breathe the world in,
remember I’m here, should you need anything.

Step out, look up, there’s much to find,
be bold, be brave and always be kind.
I’m excited to see you blossom & grow,
but remember darling, mind how you go.

Everything’s changing but don’t be afraid,
discovering new things is how dreams are made.
It’s ok to feel scared, sad or unsure,
we’ll talk when you need to, that’s what I’m here for.

You only look forward, I understand that,
but Mummy can’t help sometimes looking back.
You see 4 years flew by at incredible pace,
how did so much time pass since I first saw your face?

Have your say and stand your ground,
don’t ever let anyone push you around.
You’ll sparkle & shine, this I already know
but baby please, mind how you go.

So this is it, off we go to school,
I know you’re ready but you look so small.
Ask questions, join in, but also listen a while.
Make friends, make memories, make everyone smile.

I’ll be thinking of you every day,
I’m right behind you if you lose your way.
There’s no limit to what you can achieve,
incredible things happen to those who believe.

Ignore Mummy’s tears, she’s silly as you know,
but do something for me, just mind how you go.

Mind how you go….

Love from Mummy xxx
