Damn you 2016!! By CpSingleton © 2016

Today a wonderful lady lost her fight and the world was stripped of a beautiful, huge heart.

Sadness obviously plays its droopy-headed part during this day, but there is also aircraft carrier loads of admiration for the humble way in which she dealt with her final days.

This is a lady riddled with stomach tumours that made her constantly sick and unable to eat and, even in her last hours, she smiled and took only ordinary paracetamol.

She leaves many people shocked, including two devastated, lovely daughters, but, then again, she also gifts all who met her with many wonderful memories of the strongest person I, and they will have ever met.

If there is a heaven it is a very, very lucky place this evening.

RIP, you stunning lady.

Then the light of the world dimmed,

As if it too recognised that

A bright lantern had

Been extinguished and

It wanted to show its respect.

A little voice with

A huge heart.

You couldn’t leave without 

Making sure all understood and

Only then did you 

Close you gentle eyes.

Sleep well, dear brave lady,

Before you wake 

To familiar faces with

Warm, welcoming smiles 

To greet you home.

This world will miss you, but

Most of all,

We will carry with us 

The capacity you taught us

For strength, humility and 

A generous spirit. 


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
