A Mistake.

I was the sun that shone throughout your day,

Spreading light to your path and shinning your way.

During my nights thoughts of you kept me warm.

You came before everything from the day you were born.


Desperately I wished to shed light through your shadow,

But you lost me somewhere and became shallow.

I have tried my best to shine for you,

Now I fear those days are through.


My light was powerful but now dims and must die.

I haven’t the strength to continue and try.

You must travel without me as you go on your journey.

Leaving me alone, now faded and lonely!


Life is the killer not the choices we make.

Walk tall and strong, never regretting this mistake.

The Desolate Garden


About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
