Hello folks!!🧚🍄 Today marks the one year mark that I met @davidkempthorne, I wrote this poem to mark the occasion! It's been such a wonderful year in a multitude of ways (yet so desperately sad at the same time with losing my father, but David has made it the happiest year despite saying goodbye to dad). Hope you like the poem D 😘 #poem#poetryofinstagram

The original was ripped apart by Billy (I was trying to prose inspired by @the.part.time.poet, but failed miserably - ended up changing it to rhyme and four line stanzas. I'm personally really pleased with the end result but I would love to hear what ...

Hello folks. It's the first father's day without dad... yesterday we went to clear out the last of the items in in flat. My sister and I talked a lot about how we felt now, seven months on from his passing and we revisited those last few hours we spent with him. I haven't written a new #poem for dad today but I'm sharing this one called "Kit Hill" which is in "Travels with Tessy". I'll always remember that afternoon that dad and I went up to Kit Hill last year. It was a place he loved so much. ...
