The Courage Living in You

This is the second of the poems that I wrote last Friday, it is a poem about being strong, having courage and knowing that YOU really do make a difference in this world.  I hope you like it and please share it with the people you love.  Clarabelle 🙂

The Courage Living in You

Sometimes you may not always, get it right,
Sometimes you can’t, sleep at night.
Sometimes the thunder, drowns out your prayer,
Sometimes you’re lonely, when no one is there.

But a lot of times your smile, is brighter that the sun,
A lot of times you skip, no need to run.
A lot of times your happiness, cheers up a friend,
A lot of times your heart, reaches the rainbow’s end.

So when life gets you down, as it sometimes will,
When the frosty ice, is making you chill.

Remember the love, warming you up,
Remember the joy, filling your cup.
Remember you are strong, nothing can break you,
Remember the courage, living in what you do.

It’s so easy to forget, the difference you make,
It’s so easy to give, and never take.
But I want you to know, that I am here,
Always for you, bringing you cheer.

My smile is for you, my hand yours to hold,
Melting the ice, in the bitter cold.
A friend is in me, a friend is in you,
Together we’re stronger, this is so true.

Sunshine Yellow

This Sunshine Colour

I wanted to make up a poem for my friend who has recently celebrated her 60th birthday. She absolutely loves the colour yellow and every time I visit her house it is surrounded by the beautiful brightness of this sunshine colour.  May your day be filled with the magical joy and enlightenment of sunshine yellow.  Lots of love Clarabelle

Sunshine Yellow

Young at heart, that’s certainly you,

Effervescent, in all that you do.

Love is abundant, in your magical soul,

Life’s energy surrounds you, fulfilling and whole.

Outgoing and fun, sunshine smiles all around,

Wonderful friend, and happy spirit I have found.

The Paradox of Life

I was speaking on the telephone to my friend Amy the other day (15.09.12), we always have some really great and fascinating conversations about the meaning of life.  Often our conversations last for hours, honestly they do, we have so much to share with each other and having Amy as a new friend in my life is a true blessing.  In this stimulating conversation Amy said the phrase, “the paradox of life”, I loved that phrase and I told her I was going to write a poem about it……and so here it is.  Thank you Amy for all that I learn from you.  Love Clarabelle.

The Paradox of Life

  The Paradox of Life

The paradox of life, under the sun,

Awakens my spirit, like an ocean of fun.

Where the mind is set free, and all is calm,

I breathe in life’s freshness, and touch palm to palm.


I’m connected to my soul, life energy surrounds me,

I’m at oneness in this moment, yet feel part of ‘we’.

My body vibrates, to the frequency of my thought,

Manifesting dreams, answering my ‘what?’.


The voice has no sound, yet I hear it loud and clear,

It’s a feeling from within, as I continue to stand here.

Where is tomorrow?, What will it bring?

I smile to myself, as I hear my heart sing.
