Shut up and eat your gruel...

I would like to say that all things are better.
I would like to say that I don't need a sweater.
I would like to say that I've been a go-getter.

But I can't.

I would like to make all my dreams come true.
I would like to think that my turn is due.
I would like to feel the way I used to.

But I can't.

But tomorrow I'll wake
and things will start over.
The hope will be there

I am after all, a woman of means
and I get what I want even when it seems
that my life is a shambles
my words, they're just rambles

And I CAN.

Well put.

You can!

Prayers still coming your way.

Brad said...

I perceive and believe
And I know it quite true
That you are a woman of strength

Your heart is strong
Your mind quite clear
Your patience, um… not so long
But good things are near
You have nothing to fear
Would it help if I sang you a song?

I pray for you, my sister-friend
Take care as you sway and bend
Now it is tough but you and I know
It will all work out in the end

Love to you,

Brad

I have no poetry - just not talented that way. I do have many good thoughts and prayers for you, though.

Cheryl said...

And you will. You'll look back and see that you did.

Wow, that was awesome. Brad's poetic response too. Like opera. Wow. My poetry is more of a visual image of you climbing a mountain of sharp, craggy rocks, cutting your knees. But you will reach the top. Triumph exists.

If you can still find the energy and spirit to wax poetic, I know you are going to be ok. :-) I was delighted to find this here this morning. You are in my prayers now and everyday!

Yippee,I was so glad to find your post.
My mornings have not been the same
Since I read your blog the most
Come high water, sunshine or rain

Brad says words that are wise
He knows you are a woman of ideals
You can cut most down to size
And write posts on how it feels

So chin up my dear friend
Have faith of a mustard seed
It'll all be ok in the end
And you'll have all that you'll ever need.

Love ya Jamie - Charlotte

I always love your poems. Your words are full of truth, and (to use one of them:) hope.
