The leaves and the branches all quivered
in the park whilst we’d been shuttered
There I pushed your wheelchair
though we were in despair
I rendered strength yet inside blubbered

*       *       *

For so long I couldn’t write elegies,
though all had been in my memories
I couldn’t find paintbrushes
Canvas turned in ashes
I didn’t know how to sing melodies

*       *      *

Later, I’ve learned to live on my own
and sometimes sobbed yet devoid of groan
Now I’m here and remain
open to feel my pain
I’m thrilled as life frees me for unknown


Thank you for reading a set of my poems in Limerick that I’ve recently learned to accommodate with my fellow writer’s invitations. As a lifetime student, I’m very grateful for these invitations to motivate me, wanting to know more. Thank you.

For those who don’t yet know my background, the following pieces may help you know.

Thank you for your kind reading.
