Apart from writing poems on most aspects of life I also write poems "on request" for special occasions such as weddings, birthdays and anniversaries. I really enjoy writing anniversary poems; Best Of Friends is a poem from the children to their parents on their 25th anniversary, as is Flowers On Highway 12 but for a 50th wedding anniversary (a beautiful story). The Gift is a wonderful example of a first anniversary poem, where the poem also delivered some rather special news :) At the other end of the spectrum, Black Raspberry Jam and Banana Sandwiches are a celebration of fifty years together. People from all around the world have shared their innermost feelings and these thoughts have helped create some wonderful moments. These stories are a unique collection of "words from the heart" and the recipients of these poems have kindly given their permission for their stories to be told on this site. (Requested privacy is always respected).
A way of saying all those things that you've always meant to say, but never quite found the right moment to do so.
