A poem of hope and light. An individual perspective of recovery that’s great advice for us all.

Editor’s note.

I recently led some workshops in St Helens for 5 Boroughs Partnership Trust. We were discussing what the term recovery actually meant for people individually. A gentleman spoke up about his personal views and immediately wrote me this poem to express his feelings. I found it both inspirational and moving and a great way of thinking  for us all! 

The Lighthouse

When the lighthouse light goes dim or think its out.

Keep it lit.

Just on a dim light.

You never know what’s round the corner.

Always hold on to hope and dreams will come true.

Wait and see when the light beams once more.


March 2014.  St Helens.
