Happy New Year Poem

I hope you had the most beautiful Christmas Day and that you are feeling very grateful for the loved ones you have in your life right now.  Christmas is over for another year and I want to now shift focus on this blog to celebrating the abundance that is coming to you in the new year ahead.

Make 2014 your best year yet, I know you can, just decide and do it.  This next poem is a lovely Happy New Year Poem created by the super talented Maureen Turner.  Maureen has shared some lovely poems on this blog with us before and it is a real pleasure to have her back.  Thank you to Maureen for sharing your poetry with us, we love you for it.  

Happy New Year

The end of the year,
is just close by,

So let’s raise a glass,
and end it on a high.

Did it all go according to plan,
or did it end, just as it began? 

The hopes, the dreams you made for the year,
did they come true or are they still here?

So let’s look forward to 2014,
stick to your plan and follow your dream.

Be happy and healthy, stay strong and be clear,
and do whatever you can, to make it a successful  year.

Happy Christmas Poem

Welcome to Day 19 of sharing a Happy Christmas Poem with you on this blog.  I was given a beautiful little Snowman yesterday with a pink hat and pink scarf, such a wee cutie and of course this inspired today’s Christmas Poem.  Thank you to Maureen Turner for giving me the little Snowman and also for my extra special personalised Christmas gift. Wishing you all a beautiful time this Christmas.  Love Clarabelle

Oh Little Snowman

Oh little Snowman,
hanging by the fire.
Your light is so warm,
your smile a desire.
You bring lots of love,
at this time of year.
You look very cute,
and full of good cheer.
I love your pink hat,
and matching scarf too.
Oh little Snowman,
I really love you.

Christmas Comes But Once A Year

Christmas comes but once a year

The sleigh bells ring and Santa’s here

The tinsel, the tree for all to see

The presents we gave one for you, one for me

So let’s raise a glass to the year gone by

Did you laugh, did you cry or did it end on a high?

So all the best for 2014 to happiness and health

and to following your dream.

Having had tragic circumstances to deal with in my life with the sudden loss of my twin brother, husband and father all within a close space of time, I felt I had to write down some of my thoughts in the form of a poem to try and give me strength to get through such sad times, I feel that poetry helped me express my emotions and hopefully will encourage others to read them and take strength from them to carry on each day and look at every day as a blessing, I now try and look at life in a more positive way and have realised that through time we all get stronger.

Happiness

In our lives the sun may shine, some days I wonder why not in mine. with a spring in your step, you go about your day, but what about those who are not made that way. 

Sharing your laugh and sharing your smile, means a lot to those who haven’t felt that in a while, they say try to be bubbly, try to be fun, but that’s really hard when you live a life where there is no sun. 

Look in the mirror say what you see, tell yourself is that really me,the frown on my face those unlit eyes, what happened to that smile that could light up the skies.

 Pick yourself up get back on track, watch out my girl or you’ll take a step back.  So here I am smiling today and I have to tell myself ‘there is no other way’.
