Best Poem of Robert Melliard

Back To Basics

Having faced the kind of tragedy
you think will only strike elsewhere,
I find most problems petty now.

Our basic needs, to eat and drink and sleep,
to care and to be cared for,
seem enough to bring us happiness,
while countless other goods or services
for which we feel obliged to pay,
seem trivial pursuits,
for people not allowed
to simply live
and love each day.

Jewellery

They never bought each other diamonds,
rubies, sapphires, pearls or gold.

The only precious things they keep
are memories of days they spent
on golden coasts with turquoise seas
or viewing snow-enamelled peaks;
tangled up in bed;
or simply playing with their children
or dining out with friends.
