This is my latest commissioned poem, written for someone who’s apart from his girlfriend and wanted to send her a birthday poem. He asked me to include references to his x girlfriend’s love of Nike shoes and Disney films.




Distance comes between us,

Casts a shadow on my heart,

Reminds me of the fun we had

And your love of shoes and Art,

The Disney flicks, the music,

Your Wonder Woman ways,

And how I’d love to share with you

More endless happy days.


Yes, distance came between us,

And how grey my world now seems,

But happy birthday sweetest girl –

You’re the woman of my dreams.
