Memory,s of the past as the lights grow dim   Leave a comment


memory’s of the past as the lights grow dim

coming to the end of the old year

as new rushes in

 

moments of the present will soon be the past

as life is moving and moving fast

things we did only yesterday

will soon be far faraway

 

a thought a dream  a moment

a place in our heart as part of the human race

has ceased and is no more

but a distant memory

 

 

of time which has passed into our subconscious

and deep into history

 

 

locked away forever to never come back again

as the old year passes and new year rushes in

Have we forgotten our history   2 comments


From the rising of civilization on the beginnings of this earth

wars have ravaged across lands and sea

warriors have led many an army

 

 

since time began on this land

we have stood struggled armour in hand

to defend what is right in our own mother lands

 

 

but we have forgotten the truth and not faced reality

we are but one in many colour and creed

who once left distant pastures and turf

and travelled across continent and sea

 

 

to form what is now a world

full of different cultures in many countries

 

who once came down from the trees

and lived very primitively.

By heavens light they sail away   Leave a comment


By heavens light they sail away

through Portsmouth’s entrance

across the sea

many sailors have sailed in once

our great navy

 

 

from time of Nelson’s great navy

Copenhagen,Ashanti , Nile and Trafalgar

 

 

to the home of britain royal navy

is where they sail from Portsmouth

a city full of fine magnificent history

 

from great first and second world wars

right back to king henry viii and the Elizabethans

the pride of Portsmouth is known for being mighty

 

 

in modern times Falklands , gulf  and my others times

Portsmouth has had its part to play in history

 

 

Field Marshall Montgomery

even enjoyed his football and watched our local team play

before and many great women and men of our services

left to fight on french beaches at d day

 

 

by heavens light did they sail away

stars guiding them to war and home

again with pride they were guarded by

our many ships of the great

Royal navy

 

Portsmouth the home of our proud Royal Navy

They gave there lives for us today in far flung countrys and fields so faraway   Leave a comment


The boots come out and shoes will shine

people gather and await patiently

poppy are pinned to clothes for all to see

the veterans get ready and stand at ease

 

 

awaiting the order to march forward for all to see

they wear the badges and beret and medals too

with pride and honour  the 11th hour is due

 

 

they assemble across the world in many great cities

to remember those who went before them and sacrificed they lives

in the name of king and queen and country

 

 

and those who have given service since the world wars

and many conflicts of today we remember them

as we march forward on this armistice day

 

 

don’t forget us when you go home

as we will always be here resting in fields and country’s so far away

we went in hope and peace and gave our lives so mercifully

for you back there so you could live in a peaceful world today

 

 

for this we honour and remember you on this remembrance day

as the last post sounds from the bugles played

comrades and veterans and family’s to children and parents

 

 

will remember loved ones too who gave so much with such pride courage and bravery for me and you

 

as they gave there lives for us today in far-flung fields and country’s so far away

we stand to attention and salute you  the fallen the brave  and the veterans too

you will be in our hearts always and in our memory’s today and forever may you rest in peace and tranquility.

a minutes silence in your memory.

IAM DEEPLY SADDENED BY WHAT I HAVE SEEN ON THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY   5 comments


I am deeply saddened by what i have seen

on tenth anniversary of 9/11

as people gathered and showed their respect

whilst shedding tears in memory

of those innocent lives that were taken cruelly

a cruel and unforgiving group of muslims

marched in london faces covered up and disguised too

yesterday saying world domination muslim rule

burning the flag of usa on this anniversary of this very sad day

how callous and cruel cowereds can these people be

if they have to hide their faces away

obvious they have no morals

and shouldnt be part of humanity

as i listened to the news a young boy in New York stood up on a podium and said

i never knew my father and i never met him

i knew he loved me and i will always love him

these words made me shed a tear

this brave young boy who had stood there

and opened up his heart for the whole world to see

how much he cared for a father he had never seen

well to all those who lost people on this day

i do have these words to say

Those who you lost so cruelly

will always be part of your love and memory

they wont forget the times you shared

and all the moments that you loved and cared

these moments so precious to you

will help you to grieve and remember them too

the smiles the laughter you had each day

the hugs and kisses and all the birthdays

the joyous moments when birth came to

proud times you had are all special to you

remember these as they remember you

and your heart will be happy

with beautiful thoughts too

god bless you all on this special day

and may your life soon be full of joy

and happy again

To all those in the world today who lost loved ones on that special day

from Kevin in Hampshire uk these words are my personal tribute to you.

they were all heroes and so are you and to all those who have given their lives in Afghanistan to fighting the war on terrorism

FOR A BRIEF MOMENT IN TIME WE HAD WORLD PEACE AND HARMONY   9 comments


Many years ago we had communism dictatorship s and east west split

but all the time it happening we had world peace and harmony

apart from cuban missile crisis which nearly blew a big fuse

for many year we went about our work each day

main players in life we knew were Russia and Nato and usa

people had jobs and many had homes too

and food it may not have be brilliant

but we knew where we stood in life

and in world order too

then one evening in 1989

in Germany something was about to change

people started gathering at Berlin

on each side of the great wall

people started chipping away

wall started crumbling and falling away

people climbed over and celebration

did begin .

what they thought was a start of freedom

was in fact the beginning of world we have today

disorder and disarray, greed, terrorism

and world disorder  too

as since this day happened many years ago

world order has crumbled and started to fade away

people struggle more now to survive

get homes work and food to eat too

terrorism is rife with breakaway republic and country’s

causing such disarray

in world we live today

gone is that past its history

but just for a

brief moment in time we had world peace and harmony.

MANY PEOPLE WERE GATHERED WORKING THIS DAY   6 comments


Many people were gathered working this day

ten years ago in Manhattans twin towers

all were special and human too

many like you and me had families

and loved ones who share their lives

and young children too

so many diverse cultures

worked in pure harmony

gracing each of the many floors

high up their in the twin towers

of Manhattan looking down on you

one moment you were there

the next you were taken

so quickly

you could even say good-by

to those who you loved

and cherished  your families

as evil took you away

your life so awfully

we wont forget you part you played

in history

you memories will live on

with your families

and those who knew you too

work colleagues friends

and world too

the people of twin towers

we will always remember you
