Words of Encouragement   |  


John has been disabled since childhood, and began writing poetry to help him cope with the difficulties of his situation. He believes that words can be a powerful healing tool if used with loving intention, to uplift, encourage and inspire. His poems are wrought from his own experience and were published in the hope that they would help others. Be motivated by the words of John, "Life, though, is full of compensations and I have been well blessed throughout my 'Life Journey' with good friends met and made along the way. Life is a kind of swings and roundabouts situation; if you can't kick a football you turn to other pursuits." John lives in a small fishing town near Edinburgh, Scotland with his very loving family and delights in the company of his great-niece and three great-nephews who bring "their own special magic". He is retired after a career in Banking and intends, in time, to write his autobiography. John writes motivational poems which will makes you stop and think. He has published two poetry books, "Peace..be ever yours" and "Quiet...flows the love".

It is with regret that I write, John passed away August 2006. The wisdom in his poetry are words that I will always cherish. I have been blessed that John left me the copyright and ownership to all of his writings. I hope by sharing his words and wisdom with you that John's talent will live on.

FOR OLD TIME'S SAKE
by John McLeod 1982

For old time's sake
Come take my hand
And walk with me
In gardens sweet
Oasis make
In this fair land
Where joyous, free
Delight we'll meet
And know that here
All time stands still
Where from the dream
Refreshed we'll wake
To vision clear
And drink our fill
From Life's bright stream
For old time's sake.


TO SUNLIT DAYS...
by John McLeod 1982

To sunlit days and wandering hills
With skies that reach forever
Clear air and joy to cure all ills
And love that leaves you never
No matter where your footsteps reach
Throughout your every day
The living things around will teach
And guide you on Life's way!


ON CROSSING NON-EXISTENT BRIDGES
by John McLeod 1982

Empty fears we all have,
Most worryings are needless,
But still we fail to understand
And go on fretting heedless.
How often then to find
Our troubles scarcely worth a penny,
Imagined hurdles, truly so,
And bridges crossed, too many!

HERE IS A WISH
by John McLeod 1989

Here is a wish that says:
'Warm, happy hours be yours,
Shadows are of passing note
But healing laughter cures.'

And walk on gladsome feet
Towards tomorrow's brand new dawn
And promise sweet!


SEARCHING FOR TRUTH

Find you a distant star
To gaze upon . . .
Though Light seems far away
Know that as darkness fades
Comes splendid dawn!

SEEK NOT TO CLIMB...
by John McLeod 1989

Seek not to climb to mountain's top
Nor sail the oceans wide
For Paradise's happy glade
Is waiting deep inside...
Seek thus that calm serenity,
Wear joy upon your face,
And find your peace of mind within
Your heart's sweet garden place!


AND ALL GREAT TRUTHS
by John McLeod 1989

And all great truths contain
A golden thread within
And wisdom's precious grain
From which Man can begin
To find his destined way
Cast off toil's fettered bars
Through Faith's long weary day
To reach the stars!
