Friday Finally Came

As the weekdays drag

And work piles up high

My head is spinning

I just want to sigh.

The thing that helps me

To see it through,

Is the thought of Friday

Like a welcome home stew.

To know the weekend

Is about to begin

Makes it all feel worth it

I can’t help but grin.

So ‘Hello Friday!’

Thanks for showing up

Now instead of running dry

My life is again a half-filled cup.

Notes On The Poem

This week has been a very busy one with work starting up again after the Easter break. I have still been feeling unwell as I tried to recover from Pneumonia. I am starting to think I have long Covid as it has been one thing after another since I caught the nasty virus a month ago.

I cannot tell you how grateful I am for Friday to have finally arrived. I am fairly sure I am not the only one to be glad the weekend is on the horizon. Nothing feels better than a couple of restful days catching up on TV shows, books and fresh air.

My little poem about Fridays celebrates that feeling of having worked all week and then putting your feet up. Another recent piece I wrote is this We Need A World poem which is meant to be a thought-provoking reflection.

Saturday Poem

This is my poem about why I love Saturdays so much. I have to be honest, they are not that exciting but I just like having a chance to not be running around madly. Chilling with TV shows or maybe nipping to the cinema make Saturdays restful and worth looking forward to.

Here it is – Saturday,

Time for us to chill and play,

Watch some Netflix, Disney too,

Amazon and HBO see me through,

And Just Like That and Bobba Fett,

Alex Ryder or Dynasty instead.

Yes Saturday is my TV day,

With an hour of fitness along the way.

Nip to Tesco, grab some food,

No work to be done – massive ‘Phew!’

Catch up with friends, gossip and chat,

And then it’s over, the end of that.

Sunday rises with a yawn,

Prepare for work the following morn.
