The Positively Poetic series is a collection of self-penned poems covering a wide range of subjects and moods including dark, thought provoking to tear-jerker’s and even light-hearted and romantic pieces.

Truly a poem for all occasions!





Anytime the nights
Are long and scary
The spider in the corner
With legs so hairy
The nightmare left you
Cold and scared
You know I’ll be there

Anytime the dawn
Brings fear and worry
The hours ticking by
As you try not to hurry
The stresses and strains
Are beyond compare
You know I’ll be there

Anytime the tears
Come rolling down
Cold damp cheeks
Beneath a furrowed frown
The pains and the sorrow
Are going nowhere
You know I’ll be there

Anytime you feel
That you just want to rest
Within protective arms
Against my chest
The sanctuary where
You don’t need to care
You know I’ll be there

Anytime the thought
Of the coming night
Creates cold dread
And deep dark fright
The sweat soaked pillow
Beneath your flowing hair
You know I’ll be there

Anytime the dark
Harbours demons of hate
That leave you running
For the dreaming gate
In the tattered rags
Of the clothes you wear
You know I’ll be there

Anytime you want me
To hold you close
Anytime you feel
That your missing most
Anytime your eyes
Search near and far
You know I’ll always be there.
