Where I am

Cute (G)

You see me here, yet I am not

For I’m in your smiles, your hearts, your thoughts

Your laughs, your tears, your oldest fears

Your past, your now, your future years

Your children’s face, your elders’ grace

I live in there, that ‘always’ place

And if you took a single look

At any page within this book

Start to finish, through and through

You’d find yourself, and you, and you

For each of you has touched my life

In times of plenty, quiet, and strife

I live there still as you can see

So, all of you… is all of me

And when it’s time to leave this place

To fill this warmth with empty space

Remember, dear loved ones here

In all your hearts I’m always near


El Lugar Donde Vivo


Me ves aquí, pero no soy

Porque estoy en tus sonrisas, tus corazones, tus pensamientos

Tus risas, tus lágrimas, tus miedos más antiguos

Tu pasado, tu ahora, tus años futuros

La cara de tus hijos, la gracia de tus mayores

Vivo allí, ese lugar "siempre"

Y si echas un solo vistazo

En cualquier página de este libro

De principio a fin, y en cada palabra

Te encontrarás a ti mismo, y a ti, y a ti

Por cada uno de ustedes ha tocado mi vida

En tiempos de abundancia, tranquilidad y lucha

Vivo allí todavía como puedes ver

Entonces, todos ustedes ... son todos de mi

Y cuando es hora de dejar este lugar

Para llenar esta calidez con un espacio vacío

Recuerden, seres queridos aquí

En todos tus corazones siempre estoy cerca

Via con Dios, Angelita.

Gracias por la mano de su hija, y gracias por permitirme unirme a tu familia.

Breaking News!!!! By jfarrell We interrupt your viewing with breaking news…. JellyBabies have risen up and rebelled against us. Sweet shops, up and down the country have been destroyed As JellyBabies, by the packet, spring into life And start their camp

Breaking News!!!!

By jfarrell


We interrupt your viewing with breaking news….


JellyBabies have risen up and rebelled against us.

Sweet shops, up and down the country have been destroyed

As JellyBabies, by the packet, spring into life

And start their campaign of terror across Britain….


The world’s most prolific serial killer, Black Widow,

Was sentenced to an eye-watering 500 years in jail;

She waggled her backside at the judge and gave him the finger;

All eight of them….


A startling astral event is underway, right now

In the skies above us.

All the recognised constellations have moved

And resolved themselves into Stephen Hawkings.


As he soars through the heavens,

You can hear him singing,

In his famous metallic voice

“Always look on the bright side of life.”


From the Big Bang to Black Holes,

From the farthest reaches of space to Quantum Physics

One of humankind’s brightest stars has passed on

And the stars have come out to pay tribute.


Rest in peace Stephen Hawkings

So subtle the fume of life designed
our God, whose love we are all confined
Created a man who was one of a kind
 He walked the path that God assigned
and further found none so thick entwined
then in James, whose light
could strike you blind
 He lit a spark on the world that shined
built a monument of words for all mankind
The beautiful moments you will rewind
With days of your youth fresh in mind
In the power of memories he will bind
And as you travel, his steps will be aligned
Along heavens ledge he'll look to find
And watch over the ones he left behind

It was forty-three years ago today when I left your womb.

Your death has brought about tears, despair and gloom.

Usually pregnancies last nine months but you had a longer wait.

You carried me for ten months, I was a month late.

From the day I was born until the day you died, we shared a special bond.

You were always there for me and I'm still unhappy because you're gone.

You didn't deserve to suffer the way you did, what a horrible fate.

The doctors did all they could but you went to the hospital too late.

I didn't know what I had until I lost it and I lost you too soon.

It was forty-three years ago today when I left your womb.

You died at the young age of twelve in 1988.

Your death was something everybody would hate.

You died of Cardiac Arrest that was caused by Intestinal Stenosis.

You were a very pretty and talented girl, everybody knows this.

It's a shame when someone as young as you passes away.

You starred in all three Poltergeist movies and in Happy Days.

You also guest starred in eleven other TV shows during your short lifespan.

Your demise devastated your friends and family and it also hurt your fans.

Your life was so short, you didn't live long enough to drive a car or to receive your first kiss.

People will always remember your contribution and you will continue to be missed.

Goodbye Robin Williams

You suffered from depression and Bipolar Disease.
Your suicide has driven the entire world to its knees.

You were so talented that talent isn't a big enough word.

I wish you hadn't died, that's what I would've preferred.

To become the terrific actor that you were, charm and talent were what it took.

Everybody loved your movies, especially Good Morning Vietnam and Hook.

You began your career as Mork and then you became Popeye.

Billions of people are saddened and devastated to see you die.

I have something to say that is one hundred percent true.

You were a brilliant actor and everybody on Earth loves you.

An emptiness in my soul

I was never able to say I love you until you were on your deathbed.

You were in so much pain, I hope you were able to understand those three words that I said.

It was very difficult to express my feelings when we were face to face.

Each moment with you was a blessing, you made the world a better place.


Since the day you died, I've felt an emptiness in my soul.

As each day passes, the misery takes its toll.

You cared more about others than you did about yourself.

I'm not rich but being a part of your life was insignificant compared to wealth.


You were such a sweet mother, you deserve nothing but praise.

You'll be with me spiritually for the remainder of my days.

I'm going on with my life because that's what you'd want me to do.

If I live to be a hundred, I'll never stop loving you.

Rest in peace, Mom

You weren't a saint but you were extremely close.

Out of all of the people on Earth, I've always loved you the most.

It will be very painful as they lower you into the ground.

Life will never be the same because you're no longer around.


You were a wonderful human being and a terrific mother too.

Your family and friends will always love you.

You were so sweet and kind that you should've been given a humanitarian award.

The people in Heaven are happy because you're there and so is the Lord.


You're in a better place and that makes your friends and family glad.

But as people see the tears rolling down my cheeks, they know that I'm so sad.

You were one fantastic lady, you were truly one of a kind.

Knowing that Heaven is your new home gives us peace of mind.


From time to time I wasn't the ideal son and that's something I regret.

You gave me life, love and happiness and that's something I'll never forget.

It hurts very much because you are deceased.

Everybody loves you Mom, may you rest in peace.

I lay my tender heart.

I lay my tender heart at your feet
and my soul and very being I surrender
My desire and quest
to fill your heart with so much joy
and summer
that the sweetest of emotion
and my endless affection can bring
for thou makes my heart sing.

To stand by you
to provide and protect you
a bond so strong
nothing can tare it apart
until death do us part
and we meet again
later in a ,much better place
once again reunited.
