A Special Nursery

When life began for my Special Son, A few complications made it a traumatic one Only a mother knows how difficult it can be When birthing plans don’t follow the A.B.C   You feel so helpless, scared, unsure and sad, Life’s great wonder, waiting to be a dad Now just when you are falling into […]

All that is gold does not glitter

“All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again […]
