A poem my niece wrote


Recommended Posts

A poem I wrote for my uncle Andrew, who passed away aged 39 on August 23 2010 after a short but hard fought battle with pancreatic cancer. Love you always, rest in peace.XXXXXX


Visit me in a dream.


Come and visit me in a dream,

And tell me how you are,

Are you floating on a cloud?

Have you found the brightest star?


I know you're with us somewhere,

Even though you can't be seen,

Painting the bluest sky,

Or among the grass so green.


As I'm wandering through the park,

Looking up at the trees,

Daydreaming of the joy you brought,

Will you visit me please?


Just send me a little sign,

White feathers on the breeze,

To let me know you're happy, free

And put my mind at ease.


Or ask a passing stranger,

With twinkling brown eyes,

A cheeky smile, and baldy heed,

To nod as he passes by.


Or maybe play a special song,

Loud, on my radio,

That could have been written just for you,

About all the love we've known.


Come visit me in a dream,

And tell me how you are,

I know you're there, a floating cloud,

Hi everyone

I've just spoken to my niece, she had a dream about Andy, and found it very comforting, then today she has received news that her beautiful poem is going to be published, she entered a competition and out of 8,000 enteries she has been chosen.

It's fantastic news, and she may get to read her piece to an audience and describe what prompted her to pen such a poem, obviously this will have media coverage which will highlight PCUK.

I'm so proud, and I'd like to think that my Andy had a little hand in all of this, helping us on our way

Thanks Jeni

When my niece returns to work and tells her boss I'm sure they will do an article on it in the local paper that she works for.

This will highlight pancreatic cancer once again, especially with the sad news of Steve Jobs.

The book is out on dec 31st and I have pre ordered my copy!
