READERS’ POETRY: From the Bury Free Press of December 26

Readers' poetry

This week’s poems are by Jan Parkin and Patricia Anne Rivers.


Goodbyes are never easy

Some are bitter sweet

Some they mean forever

Though in the future we might meet

Some end romantic stories

Of the sweet and fleeting kind

And some after a lifetime

Of the paths of loves entwined

Some may feel the relief from

Torment that lasted years

For those who’ve been unlucky

With the loves who’ve brought

them tears

So with each farewell we have in life

A new door opens up

To a new life, whatever that may mean

And a chance to rise above

For if there were no more endings

No more chances to review

Then our lives would be relentless

With no hope to start anew....

Jan Parkin


Just like warm sunshine

Good wine, or the sea

You are the person who brings joy to me

Your smile is infectious

Your eyes are alight

You are a wonderful beautiful sight!

You make my heart dance

You make my heart sing!

If I ask the question -

Will you take my ring?

Patricia Anne Rivers
