For my mum


Brown bear, you were there before I could walk

Before I could laugh; before I could dream;

Brown bear, you were there before I could talk;

Before I could cry; before I could scream.

My life story in intertwined with yours

We unearthed the world one step at a time

We climbed hills and walked across the moors

Our corner of the world was so sublime.

Seasons have turned and I’ve grown like a tree

I’ve flown the nest; I work in the city;

But here you are! Still watching over me

Just how nature intended it to be.

There is just one thing I would like to say;

Thank you mother, for being there, always.

2. Mum, you said you preferred poems that rhymed so I wrote this one just for you :p



I like to think I'm a story teller. I love stories. I believe the world is filled with stories just waiting to be told and learned. I enjoy travelling down the road less travelled, with my iPhone and journal in each hand. Here you'll find all my poetic musings... Enjoy!
