Hello Dear Reader, and welcome to my new home on the internet. I’m lucky to live in a beautiful village nestling by the river Bain in the heart of the Lincolnshire Wolds. From my windows overlooking pasture land, I can see sheep and Lincoln Red Cows according to the season. Just one small Church, a Village Pub and less than 250 inhabitants.
This is where I will write my many “Poems Of Love” together with a few stories, I do hope you enjoy them and return again. Please leave a comment should you wish, it is always lovely to hear from you.
Susie’s book “A Power Within – Poems of Love” is available to purchase here, see: Navigation.
It is also available at the Myeloma UK ‘info days’ throughout the year. Proceeds to Myeloma UK.
How lucky I am to live in this lovely part of England, in a tiny village nestling by the River Bain with just one pub and a little church. I love all music, reading, writing poetry, cooking and entertaining my family on their visits. I have a wonderful Husband, two great Sons, an enchanting daughter-in-law and a very special Grandson, two super Sisters, three lovely Nieces and one Nephew. The only blight on my lucky life, – which happened three years ago – has been the very sad news that my husband has been diagnosed with the terminal disease Multiple Myeloma. He has had a really tough time but we work at making the best of each day, and treasure our time together. I look from my windows every day and feel privileged to live in this beautiful part of the world.
From Tennyson, who was a native of this area: “Calm and deep peace on this high wold, and on the dews that drench the furze and all the silvery gossamers, that twinkle into green and gold.”

Poems of Love
My “Poems of Love” have been written for my husband Hamada, who suffered from Multiple Myeloma – a bone marrow cancer arising from the plasma cells. Hamada’s story is still available to read in full on http://www.susiehemingway.blogspot.com After many months of chemotherapy and contracting pneumonia twice once given only twelve hours to live and having two bad fractures to his spine with only a small percentage of kidney function left, he managed to survive for four years seven months. Passing away on the 23 November 2010. He never complained, using his most amazing smile even when I knew he had severe pain. Hamada achieved a Stem Cell Transplant using his own ‘harvested cells’. During October 2007 he spent seventeen days in the “Centre For Clinical Haematology” at Nottingham City Hospital UK. He obtained a good partial remission and managed just over a year before tests again showed that ‘the beast was back’ Hamada although weak and tired managed with amazing courage as he continued to fight against the wretched disease of Multiple Myeloma. I sincerely hope you enjoy these poems of love, telling of our life together and my thoughts now without this special man. I hope by my writing here, to help raise the profie of this rare 1% of all cancers. I do hope you follow as I reshape my life after the death of this amazing man. The full story of Hamada’s fight is on http://www.susiehemingway.blogspot.com
