Ready Our Heart

We buy online,we clean, wrap and bake;with careful splendourwe decorate. We send cardsof good wishesand bring out thegood dishes. We chat on zoom,and also on Skype;a few seasonal emailsand posts we do type. We remember the past,and days of our youth;hot chocolate and cookiesfor our sweet tooth. Though this year is different,not as joyous aContinue reading “Ready Our Heart”

A Heart Torn

A tear,sliding gently,trying to escapeand fallinto a pool of sorrow. Lost dreams,once written,desired to be fulfilledbut pushedalways forward til the morrow. So many things,left undone,leaving a holeto be filledwhere happiness once flowed. Sadness falling,covering all,like a blanketforgottenneeding to be stowed. A void,in need of filling,darkness,vast and emptyevery night and morn. This is loss,and grief,and miseryforContinue reading “A Heart Torn”

The Strength of the Spirit Will Carry Me

Into the abyss, I go,to drop the chains that bind;to free the sorrowful thoughts,that toil within my mind. Down, down, down,to rid myself of fear;never once releasing the light,ever and always keeping it near. All the hurts that scar me,I drop and watch them fall;as forgiveness rises up,until there is no pain at all. TheContinue reading “The Strength of the Spirit Will Carry Me”

If Ever I Saw

If ever I saw,really saw,what the world did to you,what you did to you,I would weep,bleed on the inside,until I was depleteddrained, lying on the floor. For you,you are a piece of meas intertwined as my breath;grown from within,sewn together with invisible thread,held,cradled,cared for,loved. If ever you knew what the world did to me,what wouldContinue reading “If Ever I Saw”

When The Logical Is Logical No More

When the logical is logical no more,and you’re picking yourself up from the floor;realizing there is no glass slipper,still trying hard to be chipper,as you fall through life’s delusional trap door. When your heart has said it’s enough,and you try to be gentle, not gruff;but you find yourself crying,despite all your trying,you learn you reallyContinue reading “When The Logical Is Logical No More”

I Am A Female

I am a femaleI am strong,and I am brave;yet, I am also gentle,and can be fragile,hurt easily by words,and silence. One moment I can take on the world,the next I can be brought down;down to my knees,to cry,to pray,to pick up the broken piecesand carry on. I have the force of a hurricane,and the strengthContinue reading “I Am A Female”

As The Sun Sets

And as the sun sets,my mind wandersover the day past. Was I good enough,kind enough,loving and forgiving? What will the morrow bring?Continued sadness, or joy,hope or despair?The answer, residing ever,and always, in me. For, it is in faith I live,and in faith, hope,and in hope, peace. Yes, there may be sorrow,even anger and regret,but theyContinue reading “As The Sun Sets”

Today I Remember

Today, I remember,all that was given,all that was lost;those who fought and died,never to return,theirs was the cost. The ones who were injured,some visible, some not,nameless faces;of past and of present,fighting, ever fighting,for truth, liberty and justice. We honour their service,honour all, their bravery,those too in an unmarked grave;I promise as I stand here today,toContinue reading “Today I Remember”
