The look on my daughter Sophia’s face only last Christmas was heartbreaking. ‘Mum’ she said, ‘I saw Jackie this morning.’ Jackie was our neighbour’s daughter and her best friend. ‘She had so many lovely toys from Father Christmas and I only have this one doll.’ She was tearful, but she reasoned. ‘It must be because we don’t have a chimney, and I’m sure some of those presents were meant for me.’ In disbelief I found myself nodding. ‘Yes darling, it would be different if we had a chimney.’...

It's That Time Again, The Time You Went Away....

It’s that time againThe time you went awayYou were taken from meEven though I begged you stay.   It wasn’t even your faultAs you cycled down the roadHe was driving far too fastNo comprehension of the Highway Code.   It’s that time againYour memory in my mindIt’s that time againLife can be so unkind.   I wear your clothes you become part of meAnd I slowly walk that streetDon’t know what I’m hoping forPerhaps your spirit I will meet.   I know that could never happenBut I do it any wayEvery year when it’s that time againAnd it’s that time...
