IN MEMORY OF ANDREW CHARLTON

Many years had passed until recently I saw you

but then to day the news came through.

 

A great old friend had suddenly passed away

he lived and worked hard in every way

he brought up his family and loved them all to

 

he had many great friends who remember him to

 

his favorite haunt was Raven pub in Southsea

where he would share a few beers with friends and family

where he would laugh and joke and drink merrily

 

but sadly yesterday evening he did pass away

may god bless you my dear friend in a special way

 

and with all the sadness of this news of your passing away

our thoughts are with your family as you grieve today

 

may sun lift the dark clouds which hang over you

and bring back the sunshine and warm memorys too

 

of Andrew Charlton dear old friend  to me and many others

and proud father to great family we are all thinking of you

 

may you rest in peace old friend we will always remember you.

 

IN  MEMORY OF ANDREW CHARLTON FROM SOMERSTOWN WHO DIED YESTERDAY.

Behold them that follow me

I am the pompey poet you see

Portsmouth my great city

where I write and sometimes sing each day

a few words of wisdom some might say

when words flow as poetry

and others as notes you might sing

whats that I hear  its rubbish put it in bin

onto the fire for burning

up rise the flames of warmth and colour too

the red of passion of power and play

where love comes into words I say

the warmth of love on a beautiful day

vulcanic rush of flames ignite pleasure in you

the joy of passion from flames too

then as it slowly dies away

darkness of coals symbolise night

and end of day

the passion of pompey poet

rests once again

until I wake to chorus too

the dawning of day

the birds sing too

the sun rises slowly into the sky

the blue colour of the sea

word thoughts enter me

once again I write a sonnet or a verse or two

of poectic words rhyming for you

or just another little tune

four valentines four fords four poetry four you

my heart sings poetry to

for If you enjoy my poetry

and gaze at the sunset in beautiful southsea
