Denise 
A kind soul,

Beloved by many.

She adopted children, as a Grandma.

Gave them a place in her heart.

She enlightened lives of those she met.

Friends, family, loved ones.

They all admired her generous spirit.

Her humour and her sense of adventure. 

She who cheered on her favourite team, Rochdale.

With friends by her side.

She who gave all of herself to a group of Brownies.

Getting to know each and every one individually. 

She was always there for them.

When times were bad,

Even taking get well cards to poorly girls.

When we did a compliments game at Brownies.

Lots of the girls complimented her,

For always giving them biscuits. 

We all had a good laugh about that.

We have lots of memories. 

Of fun, chaotic and busy times,

As leaders together.

My first encounter of Denise,

Was through my good friend Diana.

She has always been there,

For Diana and her family.

Every party, every show,

Through good times and bad.

But there are also other parts to her,

Parts I didn’t know well.

Her job at the dentist.

Her family life.

Others bonds and relationships,

Connections she’d made.

Because after all.

All who knew her,

Loved her.

Her husband Michael, 

Has lost his soul mate,

His other half.

We all feel, 

There’s a hole in our lives.

We feel emptiness,

Distressed.

Why did she have go so soon?

But we must hold on to the happiness.

The memories, the joy she gave us.

She has touched our lives like no other.

And we will never forget,

Denise.

Broken

Posted: December 10, 2015 in Uncategorized

Broken
Can’t you see how much I hurt

Can’t you see my pain

Can’t you see the tears I cry

Even if there see through

Can’t you see my cracks

I’m broken from inside

Can’t you hear me screaming

Even though I’m set to silence

Can’t you feel my emotions

Hidden deep within

Can’t you help me cope 

Because I just don’t know, 

Where to begin
