Beautiful Words of Love.
Chris Meredith, poet and public speaker, graced us with his thought provoking beautiful words, capturing our emotions of love.
Chris is a published poet with his first anthology, ‘Words of my life’ which he shared extracts with our residents.
Below is a poem he wrote, inspired by his visit to our Home.
When you love someone more than yourself
© Chris Meredith (Inspired by the residents of Glebe House Care Home)
Sometimes we think of things we have done
Like kissing a sailor on land, what fun
Or singing to ourselves a country ballad
With a bit of western for music balance
But when it comes to outright love
The story I heard of Alex was indicative of
A world of beauty so rarely seen
That nothing ugly can come between
Life is full of lessons we learn at different speeds
How to care and meet our loved one’s needs
To love someone more than we love ourselves
Is a hidden gift from hidden spells
