Adrian Murphy

Rookie (March 1968 / Northern Ireland)

Biography of Adrian Murphy

I am born and bred in Northern Ireland, attending school and University here and now work as an accountant in the Northern Ireland Civil Service.

While I have always loved literature and poetry, I found only the courage to write my own poems quite recently - partly as a form of self therapy as my marriage of 20 years ended in March 2009.

As time has passed, I find that words and poems seem the most natural way of expressing my thoughts and feelings about life.

Hopefully you will appreciate what you read.

Only yesterday you were a child
I held your tiny hand full of a father’s joy,
Those twinkly blues eyes and winning smile
Stealing hearts at every turn
You naked, peeping from behind the stair gate
That little kitchen and the ‘delicious’ food you made
Laughing as you told so many funny stories.

A woman now, my heart full of pride
