This is why I have had to look through every piece of paper that is in the house – amongst all the junk, I occasionally find a treasure! Have come across some early writing of mine including a poem which I must have written at the time of my wedding on the Isle of Wight in 1988. I don’t think I’ve seen it since then.
Difficult to read and retype, the particularly poignant verse being:
I will work through pain and problems,
Lean to live with fear of grief.
What we’ve had is worth a lifetime,
Even should our time be brief.
Well, our time wasn’t that brief (29 years), but I did end up experiencing grief at the end of it.
