IN MEMORY OF A.R. (DAVID) LEWIS 01st DEC 1919 – 17th MARCH 2016


Dear Reader,

I am often asked why at the age of 90 years I would wish to have my own website? Well, there are several reasons behind my decision – I suppose the simple pleasure of sharing something which may have a positive effect on another persons life is my greatest single motivation. One of my other motives for broadcasting my work is a strong sense of preserving history ‘as it happened’ and my age puts me in a fairly unique position to do this – to ensure that society’s Spin Doctors and Politicians don’t misrepresent past events to their advantage. Finally, this website serves as a simple, personal indulgence, which gives an old country boy a little pleasure.
I sincerely hope your visit here is a pleasant one and I hope that when you leave these pages that you can take with you a little something which in some small way helps you through your day and I would encourage you to try and do the same for others.

Please take the time to visit some of the sites in the Links section – Here you will be able to visit some of my favourite sites, many of which are the work of very talented creative writers. I am sure you will find them of interest. Please feel free to email me if you would like your site to be considered for inclusion here.

Thank you all for visiting!

Warmest Regards,

A.R (David) Lewis

The life that I have
Is all that I have
And the life that I have
Is yours.

The love that I have
Of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours.
A sleep I shall have

A rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a pause.
For the peace of my years
In the long green grass
Will be yours and yours and yours.

Written by Leo Marks, and presented here In Loving Memory Of My Wife, Gwen. I found a copy of this poem folded up her purse after she had passed. A beautiful poem, dedicated to my beautiful wife.
