Togetherness and Blessings


Pin It


Joan Wilson

There’s nothing as nice as togetherness

With friends we hold so dear

To share one’s delights or problems

And to show each other we care

A look, a touch gives one a feeling of belonging.

But in these days of rush and never stop

We pass each other on the street or in a shop

‘Hello – how are you’ is all we have time to say

Too rushed – we’ve got to get away.

To what? A traffic jam, the office or where?

Surely we should have a moment to spare.

Maybe in our home we’ll have a cup of tea

I don’t know though we’ll have to wait and see

Wait? But time waits on no one I’m told

So make time for each other before you’re too old.


Joan Wilson

As I lie here in my hammock totally at ease

I can hear the sound of nature and feel a gentle breeze,

The roar of traffic and sirens can be heard

But is soon forgotten with the sound of chirping birds.

From the great almond the leaves are falling

And in the distance the parrots calling.

Through my windows I can see

The trees full of blossoms for the birds and bees.

Huge trees too beautiful for words

Planted to give shade and a home for the birds,

Chimes are all around and ringing

Birds are in the air and singing.


White clouds above in the great blue yonder

Fills me with awe and makes me wonder.

The swing in my garden gives me great pleasure

And reminds me that I have a treasure

In having a piece of God’s beautiful earth

In Grand Cayman the home of my birth.

So I give thanks to God above

For giving me life and all this to love.
