Mental Health





A champion of the oppressed and disadvantaged.

Cheerful and kind words of advice for all.

Teaching and nursing were her advantage.

Val's love for caring and her concern for all.


Above all her ideas, creativity and inventivness.

Val's spontaneity and inclusiveness of all people.

Writing and poems were her creativness.

And so she encouraged many to kindle.


A collective of people and ideas her ideal.

Opinions sought and eagerly acted upon.

A mass project would be her appeal.

Poems and prose to depend on.


For Val was a friend to rely on when in need.

Val's love for her family to be admired.

To many, Val was a friend indeed.

From all at Mental Health Wellbeing; a fond farewell friend. 


Author's Notes/Comments: 


At the loss of a very good friend; some words of respect.

This poetry touched my heart.

This poetry touched my heart. It helps us remember that what we do now will become our legacy tomorrow. Some may or may not remember us when we are gone, but the ones who remember, will forever hold us dear in their hearts. So lovely.

God bless her. May she RIP.

God bless her. May she RIP. I'm glad she had a full life, however cut short it may have been... (but hopefully not).


...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

A Voice Gone

A voice has gone out of the world

that once was kind and kindled

fires in the hearts of those

who needed heat and love

and someone, anyone to care.


She dare to pick up pen

and write down the love that

spilled from her head and mind

to make the world a brilliant

with light space, to make

the reader smile.
