Missing! | Peter Matthews

I woke up this morning, was missing a toe

Limped all round the house, oh where did it go?

When going to bed I know I had ten

I got up, looked down, I counted, and then

I enlisted the help of my wife and my lad

To find the lost item I know I once had

We looked in the bathroom and under the bed

We looked everywhere and I finally said

“A nice cup of coffee with double whipped cream

Perhaps what I feared was only a dream!” 


Peter Matthews, a country boy at heart, lives with his wife in the suburbs of Nottingham, England.  His greatest achievement is that he has aged fairly gracefully but has avoided growing up.  Peter has written poetry from the age of sixteen and blogs regularly at www.pollymermaid.wordpress.com
