Poem for mum

My lovely yummy mummy,
'I'm losing my memory' she said.
So off we went to the doctor
And scans were done on her head.

To Alzheimer's

It's a year now since you took my Dad,
For him there's no tomorrow.
You made sure of that when you came along
with your heartache and your sorrow.

Lizard Point to Land's End

The trek began with all together,
A noble bunch a bold endeavour.
Skirting the coast from Lizard Point,
Adventure touching every joint.
