The poem that you loved yesterday,

Nearly didnt make it,

After Id shown it to Geoff,

I said dont think theyll like it.


Id tried to do it different,

And Christmas songs put in,

I studied it for ages,

Then threw it in the bin.


Then somehow I thought to myself,

It wasnt really bad,

So I went and rescued it,

For that Im really glad.


I could not believe the comments,

Your appreciation you did show,

I think it was a record,

Just shows you what I know.


It just makes me wonder,

How many have I discarded,

When you may have loved them,

From your comments Id be delighted.


So in future I promise,

My poems I will not hide,

Ill get Geoff to type them,

And let all of you decide.
