Loving Friend--By Patricia Ann Farnsworth-Simpson--Canary Islands

Loving Friend

Living life wanting love to be
Openly embraced by all we see
Vastly shared right from the core
Injecting peace by destroying war
Nurturing children in same way
Giving them security day by day

Feeling each other’s trouble and pain
Reaching out again and again
In order to help them overcome
Endure everything so life is fun
Needing always to embrace and give
Directions in peaceful way to live

Patricia Ann Farnsworth-Simpson is a coal miners daughter, the only girl among 6 lads. A young mother to a son, she became a widow before she turned 18.  Patricia, then, married her childhood sweetheart who fathered her lovely son and two wonderful daughters.  Her children encouraged her to pursue her own talents.  After 51 years of marriage, she became a widow again recently.  She fills her time with poetry, helping others whenever she can.
