Gone

DSC_1996

Why does it seem like everything ends
just as it is beginning
A beautiful friendship
Lost in the crowd
of popularity and confusion
How do I get it back
I don’t think I can
No regrets until now
A spur of the moment night
turns a lifetime into dust
It’s all gone
The love, the memories and emotions
lost forever in this world full of chaos
Day after day, getting worse
and there’s nothing I can do about it
but think and worry and wonder and cry
Is it gone forever
Anything can happen and everything did
That is my problem
Now it’s over and I’m all alone
It’s gone forever

What an Inspiration!

20121128-173903.jpg

I had to write this morning about how amazing it is to find new poetry and poets. I have been unbelievably inspired by about five blogs I have recently found. They have also visited my blog and we seem to all have more in common than just our poetry. It is amazing how God works to bring people together in life that need to be in some way. I have been so inspired by their poetry and it has made me feel refreshed to write more poetry again. I feel so blessed to have this place to share my experiences and, as someone recently said to me “cleanse my soul.” Thank you to everyone who visits my blog. You are taking a piece of me with you every time you read something I write because it truly comes from my heart.  God Bless you!

 

When Life Hurts

32c6ed75-6816-4c94-809d-9856ffd3ab0dWhen life hurts or doesn’t make sense
Remember you are not alone
Always know God is there with you
You will never be alone

There are days in our lives when it’s hard to find hope
and we just don’t know how to go on
But, with God by our side, there’s nothing to fear
because we have that special bond

We are His children, so dear
no matter what happens in life
Never have doubt of our Father’s love
His promises will never die

God knows that we live in a hell on earth
and He mourns right by our side
That’s why He has prepared a special place
He calls it a paradise

Writing

_MG_5874

Writing has been my escape
from a world that has hurt me so
It heals me in a special way
when I feel so very low
It’s difficult to express my thoughts
Some days I shut down inside
But pen and paper can’t hurt my heart
and has never criticized
For several years I have written a lot
when I have felt so very alone
My writing has become my friend
when my thoughts begin to roam
As time has passed and days have gone by
I have shared the talents God gave to me
I used to hide it from the world
But now, I hope it may help others to heal
