Jayne Louise Davies Poems

Distant memories lost in time,
I close my eyes and think of you.
Memories of the way we were,
Glaze my eyes, like morning dew.

I sit near the window,
The mountain in view,
The garden's so quiet,
Flowers are few,

I long for the night,
When I'll hold you so tight,
In my dreams,
Once again we are young,

Old age is a must for all of us,
But with it brings aches and pains,
My prescription list's getting longer,
And my stamina's gone down the drain,

In my memory there you lie,
Precious memories,
Years gone by,
Always the apple of my eye,

I sat down, onto the large leather chair,
Looking around at the others, already sitting there.
Faces of people I didn't know,
Some glanced at me,

My nights at the disco now over,
My days of The Bump truly gone,
For age doesn't come by itself you know,
My feet have a mind of their own!

Dependant on dreams,
Just to get through,
Hoping each night,
I get to see you.

I walked away that sunny day,
Never to see your face,
It's been one long eternity,
My life's so out of place,

I remember those long hot Summers as if they were yesterday,
When the sun shone down on our street, the place I loved to play.
For many a window glistened, cleaned well to a sparkling shine,
Where starched white shirts blew gaily, on many a washing line.

Oh the winds of winter chill me,
Shivers to my very bones,
Snowy mountain scenes that thrill me,
Fine blue skies with various tones,

And so the birds begin their song,
They help me write,
To think upon,
The memories dear,

Wild flowers blow in the morning breeze,
Surrounded by beautiful butterflies and bees,
Warm is the glow of the dazzling sun,
How lovely this garden of mine has become.

So fragile is a loving heart
That breaks in two as loved ones depart
To long for them each passing day
To yearn for them in every way.

Come to me through my memories,
Never fade away,
Come to my thoughts,
Be with me today,

Lily of the valley,
Such beauty you portray,
Lily of the valley,
Brighten up my day,

One moment your right here beside me,
In a flash you are taken away,
I'm hearing your voice in my memories,
I long for you every day,

That little cottage by the sea,
Where roses grow so eagerly,
That little place I long to live,
That special place,

On the old oak tree,
Where lovers names are written,
Etched forevermore.

How pleasant it is to know Jayne,
Sometimes she can be a right pain,
She'll talk you to death,
Don't come up for a breath,

The Best Poem Of Jayne Louise Davies

I'll Hold You Close

Distant memories lost in time,
I close my eyes and think of you.
Memories of the way we were,
Glaze my eyes, like morning dew.

I hear your voice so clearly now,
A loving smile, lights up your face.
We walk together, hand in hand,
Then head for home, that special place.

I miss your love, I miss those times,
The love you shared, your love for me.
It broke my heart, you fell asleep,
No greater friend will ever be.

I'll hold your memory close to heart,
Your love will flow within my veins.
I'll hold you close, right to the end,
My dear Mum, we'll meet again.

I like your poems so much, so much I read one of them out at a remeberance parade here in the city of s-Hertogenbosch Holland. I hope you don't mind as it was appreciatedby the poeple that were there. It was in memory of the 53rd Welsh Division that liberated the city.The poem was Honour The Brave" . It was a somber service due to covid 19 that only 10 poeple were officially allowed to be there. Thank you. Mike Williams

Don't bite the hand that feeds you, you never know when you may need it again.

Life is ours to live, not to be wasted.

The young dream of the future. The old dream of the past.

Happiness cannot be gained by having everything in life. It's about appreciating what you do have.

A good friend is the best gift you can have.

Where there's power there's strength. Where there's greed there's war.

Wherever you go in life, whatever you become, always remember where you came from.

Living a dream is better than giving up.
