“What is the purpose of life?

We all ask the same.

To do what you can

To be what you are

To care and to love.

With all your immeasurable falls

This is all you can do.”


This is the last verse of a poem which is in my poetry book “Tonight the Moon is Red”.  Published in 2014 by Muswell Press with a forward by Michael Morpurgo.
