Always There to Guide

In darkness and dispair
You were always there
An angel by my side
Who was always there to guide
A light towards a door
I could not ask for more
Thank you for your voice
For it has lead me miles more
Than what I could ever do alone…


To remind you who to call!

There are days when we feel invisible
As if a whisper in the wind
A ghost who has no home to haunt
Or A creature without a den
Though it is in these moments we must remember
That there is still hope yet
For with just a spark of love
Theres a place to return to yet.
And if you feel you have no one
Look back upon these words
Know that I have shared them
To remind you who to call.

To pick up a needle

NB: Written for Laura but for all 🙂

To pick up a needle

To pick up a needle, a lifes calling
Its words whispered through my fingers worn
What it says, I do not know
For its tongue was lost an age ago
Till its finished going in and out.
I watch on with such awe
Watch each time it slowly emerges,
As a new story is told

Untill finally its reached the end
And all I can do is look on inspired
Then it passes and I go back again
Curious about what stories next told.

Appreciation – Love Poems: These Were Written for a friend called Laura

I wrote these at the bottom of every email written to Laura she said I could post them here. She is one of the most talanted people I have met, with a real gift to bring a smile to people with her creativity.

She gives me a bit of hope inside that there are un-judgemental, loving caring people who want nothing more than for people to be free to express themselves.

So Laura, thank you for letting me put these on the bottom of all your emails, for inspiring me and making me smile. I am glad you allow me to share these with the world.

You are coming to mean a lot to me, I love our emails… theres is nothing more wonderful than a friend, no matter where they are, how far away or wwhat they look like. Thank you for putting up with me.

Love Matty

NB: If you can’t tell, I write to Laura more than I should.


To bring a smile to my face
Warmth to my soul
Safety to my heart
Such a gift worth more than gold
Never hide it from the world


To my dearest wonderful friend
You bring to me such tears
For I am blessed to see
All the things that you have made
Keep creating forever more
For days into the unknown
For that is hope to not just me
But to a world creativly lost!


You are a talanted soul
A blessing to this earth
Your presence brings me hope
That dreams can still come true
For that I owe you much
More than words can give
For in the end thats all we have
The dreams which hold us true.


The greatest spice, to add to life
Is not edible in anyway
The smallest pinch brings stares of awe
For just its presence makes things ok.
The greatest spice to life is you…
And I would not have it any other way.
Thank you for making life more wonderful.
I am sure for others you do the same.


I hope you have a wonderifical day!
And remember to sparkle in every way!
For if you don’t we may forget!
Just how wonderful this world can get!


In the dark you are a candle
How glad I am you are a light
For if you weren’t I would get lost
And stuck in the dark forever more


Through your work you show your mind
A wonderous world, creatively inspiring
How lucky we are as people to see
Such beauty gifted for all to see
Never hide your talants grand
For that if the only sin.


If in doubt look to the sky
Watch as all the clouds move by
They will never be the same twice
Its the reminder that change can be nice!


This world at times can seem so large
Scary in all its pains
But just a smile from your warm heart
Can take it all away.
Thank you for being just who you are
For it makes a change
And if just one person does so much
Others will learn one day.


With love and hugs you can you never go wrong!
So remember to pass them to the ones around you most!


When you sad
When your afraid
Just remember we do need rain
But afterwards the sun shines bright
So don’t give up,
Time will catch up!


If you see the sunshine,
And enjoy the rays
Think of it as smiling
From me a world away!


Hugs and love with a small dash of cream
Put on a cherry for the pretty red dreams
some chocolate sprinkles to make you stay sweet
A scoop of ice cream, just for flavor
and to top it all off! Some chocolate sauce for yummies!


Poem for Drewby

In a world so strange to me
I met a puffy cloud
HE said he was made of magic
But he kinda smelled
I told him to be careful
For if some wind came
He would blow far away
and never be seen again

He kinda looked at me funny
Well I think he did anyway
It was hard to tell
Since his face was puffy and strange

Then he began to float
Float so far away
Whats your name I yelled after
Drewby was never seen again

Beware of Harriet Fruit

Written for Harriet 🙂 She give me goal and I did it 🙂

For each of us
As humans are
Ambitious in our goals
To store them in apples
As harriet does
Maybe unsafe for all
For if one was to take a bite
Who knows what one might chew
It could be a novel
A textbook
A poem
Or maybe a thesis overdue.

So when about the land of Milk
Or at least the woods,
be ware apples oh so juicy
For it could be a harriet fruit

We know the end all to well

There is something happenig in the world
What it is we are still unsure
Changes are in the wind that blows
As the tides move in and out of war

Confused we are in the darkness
Afraid of what could lurk
Despite our uncertainty of what is to come
We know the end all to well

There is not much more we can do…
Accepting is out greatest weapon
As the world is consumed by hate.
We can only try to change our ways

Forgive us all our sins to come
For all the blood that is to spill
As our darkest hour approaches on
We must cling to long forgotten hope.

After much thought

After much thought I decided to add my dark poems, this is a big step for me…

Forgive me for any harm or tummy pit caused,


You Are My Light

This is not so much a poem However I will add it to the Love Poems catagory, this is more a note, a note to those who just don’t raelize how important they are… what a candle they are to me. I remember a story about a man who in the 1700’s would put a candle by his window to lead travellers stuck in a storm to safety. I see people as my candles, as leading me to safety from horrible storms.

When the end feels close, close your eyes and say.
“Someone knows I am alive, I have a reason to be here this day.”

You only need one person to know you are alive- To truly be alive,
To live you just need to be a thought or a memory.
As long as the world is there for you, you always have a purpose and reason to exist-
The world can be as small as one, but as many as thousand.
You just have to remember, that even the smallest candle in the darkest of nights can burn as bright as the sun of day.
That candle could be anything. That candle could be you.

My Greatest Gift

When the darkness creeps
While I am sitting alone,
Huddled in my fears and tears
A comfort thought is always there.
To be by you, by your side,
hand in hand against the fright
and its this thought that holds me so
Keeping me from the horrors that grow
So much I owe you, no words can equal
No gold could stack to its worth
Thank you for just existing
It has been my greatest gift.
