Welcome to the 12th post in the #Cheers! Series!
Those of you that have popped by my site before will know that I am a tiny bit obsessed with rhyming. #Cheers! is a series of rhyming guest posts that I am honoured to share, mostly with a parenting theme, from some of the most talented and lovely people in Blogland!
Today I am pleased to share a poem which I know that I for one can really relate to, about the amazing friends that I think most of us have, that are no longer around the corner, but that still hold a massive place in our lives and hearts. This comes from the lovely Emma at Powerporter. Emma shares beautiful heartfelt posts about her gorgeous family, and writes fabulous poems such as Toddler Struggles and A Busy Family Tale. She has just celebrated her 3 month blogiversary (sending cake) and I was really excited to find her blog. I’m very nuch looking forward to reading more of her story and her adventures as a family of four.
It’s my pleasure to hand you over to Emma…
I wish, I could see her everyday,
Just pop in when you need her, just be me,
Relaxed and chilled, that’s how we are,
No airs and graces, I don’t need a bra!
She is, just happy, as long as I’m there,
Don’t get me wrong, we talk everyday,
Even if, there is nothing to say,
To listen, or laugh, but just to care,
Care about, the little things,
What you had for tea, the stuff life brings,
Less nights out, less drinking and getting dizzy,
A rare chance these days, for us to meet,
Go shopping, or maybe pamper our feet,
Even when, it contains children’s poo!
She knows it’s me, her crazy friend,
I hope it lasts, until the very end,
My bud, my girl, I hold so dear.
I’m Emma from the blog Powerporter, a lifestyle, parenting and blog about me! A place I use to talk about my life and the little family I have created. There is me, my hubby Gary, daughter Cordelia a cheeky threenager and her baby brother Davie. We live a relatively normal (whatever that is) family life, although that may be set to change with me going back to full time work and my husband becoming a full time daddy!! Watch this space! Poems have been a recent addition to my blog but I love writing them so was so excited when I got the opportunity to be featured here!!
