Poem relating to old age



As it was a year since I joined Booksie on the 31st August 2010  I thought it was time to review my Profile.  I have made some great friends, during this time, and I would like to thank everyone for your help and support, which has been a inspiration to me. I now have more confidence in myself and I enjoy my writing more than ever before.

I want to say a very special thank you to PAUL CHAFER such a talented writer, who has given me such a lot of his valuable time, advice and encouragement.  I am truly grateful and thank you from the bottom of my heart Paul.

Also special thanks to JERRY (Gerabel) who is another good friend who always gives his time to read and comment on my work.  I value his friendship and encouragement.  Thank you Jerry.

NEWSFLASH TO ALL ON BOOKSIE.  IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY A FAN OF GERABEL I WOULD THOROUGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU CHECK OUT HIS GREAT WORK.  I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO TELL YOU ABOUT A WONDERFUL BOOK OF POETRY HE HAS RECENTLY HAD PUBLISHED CALLED "TALKING TO MYSELF"   GO TO HIS PAGE FOR FULL DETAILS.

There are so many people I want to thank, but special thanks to DANNI (Gadzookziie Spice99)  Danni is my youngest and first Booksie friend and despite the age difference we have always enjoyed each others work and support and she is a very special friend. I always value her comments and thoughts as she has a very special talent. Thank you Danni.

NAZIRE who reads and comments regularly on my work and whose valuable opinions I truly appreciate, as she is such a great talent.  Thank you Nazire for all your support.

DONNA CAVANAGH a wonderful poet and writer of humour - who share so much of her work and always finds time to read and comment my work.  Thank you Donna I truly appreciate it.

JOHN QUIXOTE R.I.P.  Although, sadly, John is no longer with us I could not write this without giving John the praise and thanks he deserves for all the fun and laughter his brilliant work gave so many of us here on Booksie.  REST IN PEACE dear friend - you will never be forgotten.

.................................................................................................................

For those who are new to Booksie, or those who haven't visited my Profile before - welcome and thank you for passing by.  I appreciate all comments good or constructive criticism and I am willing to read poems and short stories if you ask me. I don't have too much time to spare reading long novels.

Just a little about me.  I am 68 years young and getting younger lol.  I was born and live in England.  I have been married to my Husband for nearly 45 years and we have a lovely blind dog called Holly.

I WILL NOT BORE YOU ALL ANYMORE, BUT THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HAS BECOME MY FAN.  MANY BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL.

PAT
