Full of Colour--By Patricia Ann Farnsworth-Simpson--Canary Islands

Full of Colour

Life’s kaleidoscope is full of colour
With it wrapped in time it couldn’t be fuller
Be it bright or dull it is up to you to see
And choose the way you want it to be

So always keep some light in your life
Light built from love to help conquer strife
Let visions of tomorrow drive you on
So you leave something good when you’re gone

Create good memories for loved ones to keep
As they recall the colour in life you did reap
Be like the sun that shines down from above
Encompassing all, do the same with love

Patricia Ann Farnsworth-Simpson is a coal miner’s 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.


  1. Patricia, I love your well written and inspiring poem. My sentiments exactly. Thank you for sharing your talent with all of us here on Whispers. It really wrapped up my very thoughts and ponderings of this last week. I look forward to more of your inspired words.
    Love, Charlene
