Return To Westgate
We loved this place you and me
Came down to Pavs for a nice cup of tea
A stroll on the front some 2 1/2 miles
Conversation sprinkled with laughter and smiles.
There in Margate another short stop
cup of coffee a bun, then a walk round the shops.
Finally back to the Westgate front
Staring out quietly just out of reach
of the children, the noise the sand and the beach.
"Shall we have one more cup"
I remember you'd say
And we would, for we couldn't let hold of this day
Now every time I come to this place
I am pleased when I see you and dad's face
For here on this beach our family held hands
Made castles, deep holes and cars in the sand
I know for sure as I stare at that sea
I will keep coming back
where those memories will be
Feel the laughter, the smiles, the games here together
Held in my heart bound to you here forever.
Written after my mums passing. We went to Westgate sometimes for a treat and I would push her in her wheelchair. It was great!
Dear dear mum how I miss you, how proud I am of you,
let me be that bright that Loving that feeling!
