- Yes, Yes, Yesby persevere
Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Blessed for a second time
Yes, Yes, Yes by persevere
Valentine's Poetry contest entry

Ripples of love from across the ocean
Offers of help for newly widowed me
Military comrades both had been
Away in the bush, a terrorist war
Now drawn closer, shared interests and background
Candid chats, sometimes twice daily
Even postponing other arrangements

On bended knee ,a thousand miles away
Never doubting the outcome

Skype was the platform
Keenly , from Kent, he proposed
" Yes, Yes, Yes" from me
Posy arrived on Valentine's Day
Ecstatic was I , with tear in my eye
