The Brighter Side of Life!

On a more positive note
While the last thing wot I wrote
Was depressing and really quite sad
There are things going on
For which I need to be strong
Happenings which make me quite glad

My older daughter who’s married
Certainly hasn’t tarried
For she’s having a baby quite soon
My younger daughter’s engaged now
The wedding day it is planned, wow
Taking place in the month after June

So, things are occurring which are nice
Soon, I’ll be a ‘mother-in-law’, twice
And a granny, to boot, oh, what joy
My sons-in-law’, they are great
And now I really can’t wait
To see if we’ve a girl or a boy

So, I’ll fill up my time
Writing poems wot rhyme
In a happy and positive vein
Using my google ability
And computer agility
On EBay again and again!

For the arrival of a small mite
And a ceremony in white
Are what’s keeping me going for now
Choosing an outfit for a wedding
And a baby’s nice bedding
Help me remain upbeat somehow

I’m still inclined to moan
And occasionally groan
About how fate has dealt me a blow
But I’m doing my best
To pass the ‘smiley man’ test
And not be a miserable ‘so and so’!


The 'crying' game

I’m crying inside, can’t you see?
It’s because I have dreaded MND
I put on a brave face for others
Hoping that they don’t discover
How unhappy I am with my life
As I cope with the trauma and strife
And the ‘knock-on’ effects
That bloody MND does project
It’s hard to make them understand
About the really bad hand
I’ve been dealt, it’s a blow
I just want them to know
That, try as I might
To put up a fight
It’s becoming quite tough
As the ‘going’ gets rough
To think positively
Though I know it isn’t just me
Who’s affected by this
That their life isn’t just bliss
 I just need to say
That, at the end of the day
They can escape my nightmare
While I’m still left in the despair
That this awful thing brings
For, there are no swings
And roundabouts here
Just snakes, not ladders I fear
Am I really the only one
Who, when all’s said and done
Thinks that life with MND is quite crap!

My Lovely Grandchild

It was so exciting, I’ve seen the scan and know
Just how much these modern scans can show
It’s tiny heart was beating, it’s nose was small and cute
This bonny kicking foetus really is a ‘beaut’!
As a first time granny I’m as excited as can be
Waiting for the baby to arrive for all to see
