Hello  this is a little about myself I am Kevin from Hampshire in south of England now  iam going under the name  of the pomepeypoet as my third new blog is called on here as great city of portsmouth is where iam from after many years of being on my own and using dating sites ,whilst on a particular site which had forums i found i could express my feelings and thoughts and emotions through words and poetry .This is what has inspired me to start writing recently on this blog after encouragement from others who have enjoyed reading things i have written in the past on the dating site I used to be part of.

At great age of almost 53 and after many years of wondering why I couldnt achieve even the basics of education ive finally got the answer after a very kind councilor spent a great many hours listening to me and said I think your aspergers  and reffered me it now turns out i am autistic .This has changed my out look on life as I spent 18 years working with these people and didnt realise I was the same. So now comes the turning point in my life and chance to finally get the help I needed since I was very small.

After living abroad as child in far east and serving in british forces and trying my hand in catering for a while I now work with special needs this ended after 18 years . Due to getting cancer in both my kidneys in march 2014 and losing both of my kidneys now a dialysis patient..hobbies well I like to read sometimes .play strategy board games and sometimes a little poker to .used to enjoy gardening and music of various tastes ,films and a good documentary and wildlife and walking all appeal to me along with cooking a nice meal .

I feel a bit privileged to for having the chance to meet some very special people in my life time and hearing there stories and heroics .so to those special people who have given there lives to give us freedom we owe a great deal so I spare a thought and hope you will to for those servicemen from our different forces giving there lives and to keep us safe .help for heroes is very special  cause  i personally know all the hard work which the base headley court in surrey provides for injured service and sometimes civilians to making limbs and helping to recovery i served there many years ago.and those funny men in the bye planes the ROYAL FLYING CORP who were the start of the royal air force met them in there later years of life god bless them and may they rest in peace. well that’s a little about me a late 40s male from Hampshire who enjoys writing a few words to maybe bring others a little pleasure and enjoyment too.

Hello from Kevin I apologise for the way my blog is due to lack writing skills caused by me having either dyslexia or dispraxia, my blog is now organised and all the poems are under the tags if you click the RSS FEED IN THE TOP RIGHT HAND CORNER  you will find all my poems and poetry under different headings also another way to find all my poems is to go onto my about page look at the bottom of the calendar and there is an arrow at the side of the month if you click on the arrow you can go write back to each month since i started in february and that will show you each poem written on that particular month hope this helps every one enjoy it.

.well april has been my busy month writing poems and I have received a lot of lovely comments thanks they are appreciated and I will reply to them.it was always an ambition to get my poetry on a site so people could have pleasure of reading and enjoying it i have had it suggested to me to publish a book but I don’t think that would ever be possible not having basic english skills so the other part of my ambition wont ever have the chance of being fulfilled despite people saying I should.

well since starting this in late february 2011 I hope I a have achieved something writing this and maybe cheered some people up and hopefully helped some aswell with my words.

So  I hope you all enjoy my poetry and tell your friends too if you like it and if you wish to say hello or pass a comment I do reply .As its people like your selves writing which has helped inspire some of my poems on here others have come from personal experiences and my thoughts and feelings on life and the world today . thanks from Kevin.

and many thanks to everyone who has subscribed to my blog I hope you enjoy it this gives me a great deal of pleasure to know people are interested in what I write and if it helps others in life to well that can’t be a bad thing either thankyou all very much for showing an interest.

well on august the 16th I finally got to my one hundredth piece of poetry on this blog I never thought I would get this far and this is all down to encouragement and nice words from people on here thankyou and I shall keep writing.

well its now December 29 th and poem number 200 has arrived. And 2012 is looking very special with Karen and myself getting married so this ended suddenly 9 months later.

4valentines4words4poetryforyou.com will be changing to 4valentines4words4poetryforyou.me  but for the moment I have new blog on here called http://www.myheartsingspoetry.wordpress.com hope you all continue to enjoy my poems and poetry.

And thanks to Teri0792 who recommended me for candlelit award for poem and to all those who have put me up for the versatile bloggers award its very kind of you all thankyou  just can’t get it on my computer but its appreciated.
