Now is the Hour - For ME to say GOODBYE

Soon I*ll be flying far across the SEA

When I return - O please remember ME

I will return - in the Big Bird in the SKY !


Now is the Hour - My stay is at an END

O how I*ll miss you ALL - every single DAY

I am so SAD - I have to go AWAY

When I*ll return - with ALL some time I*ll SPEND !


Now is the Hour - I cannot stay FOREVER

It pains My Heart - as much as yours to LEAVE

While Im away - Your Heart is on My  SLEEVE 

Nothing My Love for You - will ever SEVER !


Now is the Hour - Its over let ME GO

I must return to My Home in UK

They miss Me so - every single DAY

I*ll bring my CHILDREN here - for You to KNOW !


Thanks for reading - comments welcome - Love ANGELA XOXOX


When I came to NZ in 2018 I didnt realise how much it would

get under my skin !  Especially the People !  The KIWIS & the

MAORI are so so BEAUTIFUL ! Everyone I have met have here

has treated me with respect and made me FEEL AT HOME !

The Climate - the Scenery - the Ambiance and the Cuisine

have all been PERFECT !  I am so grateful to BRIAN for coming

to take ME HOME or I might have stayed for ever ! However

for the rest of MY LIFE - HOME will be wherever BRIAN IS !

Thanks for all your LOVE & SUPPORT !  ANGELA  XOXOX

    Wonderful write Angela.

    You will return!


      OOOOPS Uncle Andy - Ive sent a message instead of a REPLY - Please check - ANGELA XOX


      Thanks UNCLE ANDY - For all your Love & Support over the ast 15 months ! MPS has been a great link with you ALL and of course with BRIAN ! Poetry is not only CATHARTIC but also very COHESIVE ! Yes we will return for a Holiday in 2020 - but emigration is also on the Cards ! We are considered us suitable IMMIGRANTS - so perhaps it is not IF but WHEN - Watch this SPACE !

      Blessings & Peace to YOU & JOYCE
      Love as Always ANGELA & BRIAN

      Fare well on your journey 'home' and the rest of your lifes together.
      Life will bring you much joy and bitter disappointments too. Be strong in your faith that you will overcome all of times test and spread joy wherever you roam.

        THANKS DA ~ for your encouraging comments. We are old enough and experienced enough and our LOVE & FAITH is strong enough to survive both the agonies & ectasies of Married Life and (DV) A Family.

        Blessings & Peace to YOU & YOURS
        Love BRIAN & ANGELA

        Good write B&A. You might not stay long here, with Fido - temperamental, grumpy at times, strict watchdog - but man's best friend! lol.

        • ANGELA & BRIAN

          Thanks UNCLE STEVE ~ Keep FIDO on His Lead ! We are enjoying Hawaii ~ the temperatute has shot up to 30C (86F) so we will go back to Wet & Windy Autumny Essex (according to the forcast) with a nice TAN ! As far as marriage is concerned I cant see FIDO involved in all that sniffing rogmarole ~ Hes far too sophisticated !

          Blessing & Joy to You and Your (Batchelor ~ to answer your Q !) BEAGLE !
          Yours BRIAN & ANGELA ๐Ÿ’™ ๐Ÿงก ๐Ÿ’™ ๐Ÿงก ๐Ÿ’™

          Wishing you both safe journey home and although parting from friends is sad this lovely poem shows how you feel and you will return one day I am sure............... blessings and hugs from Fay xx

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            HI FAY - ANGELA here ! Yes ieaving NZ was a wrench - If I wasnt with BRIAN in Hawaii (30C = 86F) I would be bawling my eyes out ! We have already planned to visit NZ in August 2020 so they can see me in my Wedding Dress ! Also as a Married Couple we will revisit Immigration for an MOT. NZ is quite fussy about who they do & dont accept. Children are no problem but ADULTS need to have good Job Propects. We have been though the process before and were regarded as a very suitable Couple . Ex Pats always tell Us that NZ is one of the best Countries in the World to raise a FAMILY ! The biggest problem for Brits is being 11,500 miles (and ยฃ2000 fare) from the Grandparents ! You may be familiar in the UK Progamme *Wanted Down Under* (about NZ & OZ) and the GParents and the Kids always end uo in pools of tears ! That BRIDGE is well in the FUTURE but if it seems *RIGHT* we will cross it when it comes - Power of Positive Thinking !

            Blessings & Love & Peace & Joy

            Safe travels to you both

            • ANGELA & BRIAN

              THANKS UNCLE MIKE ~ We wanted to say Au Revior (Until we see you again) to NZ together which is one reason for Me (Brian) making the TRIP. I had visited Hawaii with my parents a few Years ago on the way back from a previous trip to NZ ! It was a first for ANGELA and the fare was not much dearer. We will have to change Planes @ New York on the way Back. Due in London on Monday 21st October ~ Im teaching on Tuesday ! ANGELA has week to aclimatise before her New Contract. Fortunately PHYSIO in the UK & NZ are very similar. She is now an acredited Tutor for the *hands-on* aspect of PYSIOTHERAPY & ACUPUNCTURE which is really the essence of the JOB ! This year in the UK she will complete her qualification to teach the THEORY ! She will soon be earning more than me so I might get to stay home with the BABIES (House Father !). Thanks for all your support during the last 18 months !

              Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
              Love BRIAN & ANGELA ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™

              Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane,
              I don't know when I'll be back again.

              I like that song, and it seems so fitting for this piece that I just had to write part of it. I am happy that you and Brian are together again. I hope that Brian's and your relationship together lasts forever.
              Keep the Lord first.

              Your brother in Christ -
              Dion Phillips Crown

              Persistence is key.
