As a man in his 40's I prefer to think of myself as growing young. There is a little voice telling me that reaching "middle age" is not something to worry simply will never happen! I have been writing poetry on and off for years. I prefer plain speaking so the reader knows where I am coming from - I hope you enjoy the poems as much as I enjoyed writing them - I have more!

Be With Me by Mel Lewis

Stand with me on a mountain

And we'll look down on the world

Walk with me in the garden

And witness natures beauty unfurled


Come with me and we'll spend time

Contemplating Gods endeavour

Lay with me and we'll think about

What it means to say forever

The BBC will display as many of the comments as possible on the page of commented work but we cannot guarantee to display all comments.
A poem with layer upon layer of meaning.  Again, the mass of detail works really well.
