In memory of dear linda who sadly passed away

In memory of dear linda who sadly past away

dialysis will never be the same

with out you warm smiling face

Linda we will always remember you

a lovely old lady so full of life too

never dull moment never dull day

when you came in your brightly coloured shoals

the place lit up to just like your smile each beautiful day

with your jokes and sense of humour

we will all miss your politeness and manners

your conversation to

your were always kind and so caring to

may you carry on shining brightly in heaven

as you did on earth too

as you rest in peace too

heavens will be shining ever so brightly

with a new angel like you

forever in our hearts and in our thoughts too

I may have only known you for short while

as dialysis patient to

will always have happy memories

of talking with you

My thoughts my feelings my life cancer depression and my thanks to all those who have helped me

After many moments over many years

full of heart ache and full of tears

depression and cancer have all been with me

I sometimes wonder what life is showing me

through those darkest moments we often see

I wish the sun would shine on me

I wish it would lift my spirit up and help me

to fulfil my dreams to stand up and sing

to show the world something of me

and bring a smile through words I sing and say

to stand up and be counted in life today

and show that I am back and here to stay

from all that illness that nearly took me away

will never put me through all that again

I sing and smile at you with some beautiful words of tune

to let my vocal chords have there say

in a warm and beautiful way

britains got talent has listend to me

I learnt from that moment auditioning you see

it brought out something special in me

I may not be there yet and there will be many days

of practising along the way

and go for another audition one beautiful day

they told me what they thought slight touch of nerves

affected my singing you see

but they liked my performance and have encouraged me

to go away practise and reapply too a slight touch of nerves is affecting you

a little more confidence is what you need

when they told me to reapply a smile went through me

at last someone in life sees something in me

please god listen to my prayers and help me

as I want to sing live and say thanks all Queen alexander hospital Renal team

who gave me a second chance and removed my cancer infected kidneys

who brought out the figthing spirit from inside me

several months have past since that day

I  was told I had cancer in both my Kidneys

and they have to be removed as matter of urgency

It had grown in both of them silenty over five years

it lay working its evil way inside of me

I had no idea what it was doing to me as symptons werent showing

I thought I was fit and healthy

then along came that dreadful day when I got told that awful news and we must act quickly

went through major surgey four weeks later it was out of me

then recovery I started to fight my way through

thinking of Douglas Bader his spirit in his day too

I to had been in RAF and this inspired the fight within me

I tried to stand it hurt very painfully after having your stomach cut right open

there was a challenge over next couple weeks in front of me

phyisoes turned up and said come on kevin lets try and see

Per Adva Ad Astra the moto of the RAF I spoke and thought back

as I raised my self to my feet you wont beat me

onwards and upwards through this battle

I fought back with vengance with all my energhy

I am back to stay  and going through recovery

now I want to say a special thankyou to all of you

by getting through to live auditions and sing a song one day

and say thankyou to all those wonderful people and friends and family and girlf friend to as she has gone through a lot

The beauty of life we see each day

Wineing dining drinking tea

ales of froth Iam thirsty

food on a platter served before me

eloquent surroundings

all around me

people socialiseing being merrily

party poppers a ice cream treat

a birthday bash oh so sweet

disco sounds the on coming beat

people  danceing stampng there feet away

lovers kissing a romantic play

others sit at home all day

life in all its beauty on display

beauty of life we see each day

Whispering thoughts on a beautiful day

Whispering thoughts on a beautiful day

sunlit walks around a bay

pebbles and sands on display

waves crush and run away

gulls shriek flying through the air

floating with out worry or care

the warmth of the sun

and sea shore breeze

sand castles cream teas

people swiming playing in the sea

then off home for there tea

sunlit walks by the sea
