I began writing poetry in 1991, when I discovered the ability to do so while seeking to give to my Mum a unique gift for a special birthday.
Some of these poems have been adapted for singing but most have been left untouched since they were written.
As time passes I will also make use of other people's poems (by kind permission); for there are some treasures too good and wholesome to be forgotten.
As you browse through the following pages I trust that the poems you will find there will be a blessing to you.
