 The following poem was written by Lilian Harper, a Rotherham Hospital patient who passed away in our Purple Butterfly Suite earlier this year. In celebration of National Poetry Day and of Lilian's life and talent for writing, we would like to share one of her poems with you all. #NationalPoetryDay. Share your favourite poem with us on twitter: @RotherhamNHS_FT  

Though today a cold wind blows,
What's round the corner, no one knows;
We all hope if we touch wood,
Our tomorrows will come good.

If today lasted far too long,
If everything you did went wrong,
If you felt bound by chain and fetter,
Just hope tomorrow will be better.

Maybe by wishing on a star,
And just by being who you are,
You might hear a small voice say,
"Worry not! Today's the day!"

So cross your fingers, knock on wood,
Face tomorrow as you should.
May those chains and fetters fall apart
And face the future with hope in your heart!

  • NHS Rotherham CCG @NHSRotherhamCCG  Advent Day 18 - Loneliness - For many of us, the festive season is a time for celebrating with friends and family. But, for many others it can be a lonely, isolating and sad time. Remember this Christmas that popping round for a cup of tea could really help an isolated person.
