There’s No Such Thing As Can’t
A teacher, philosopher a talker of all
Full of wisdom for even more
Untouchable with a mind that can do
Is this real? this person of overwhelming chore.
Stories of old, history to be told
Excitement, smiles and everlasting hold.
Everything needed for a new journey to be told
‘Tell me again’
Get the job done and don’t pretend.
Talking me through the jobs to be done
Pop to the shops
All while singing a merry song.
‘I can’t do it’
Trying to pretend
She pointed the finger and glared again
“There’s no such thing as can’t”
She would repent.
A life lesson learnt until the very end.
Passing on the message still
Through my eyes the letter spent
As my children spill
A defiance dent.
Unknowing until time is old
A paradox the future holds.
A beautiful poetic woman
