This is very good! Bonds can be broken, as you reveal in this poem. Love is the key, isn't it? Without love, we really have nothing. Material objects, electronics--they are fun but they are cold and indifferent.
But, it is love that saves the day and brings us joy.
Neat story about your favorite dream! I used to have a favorite dream; one that made me feel young and happy. I haven't had kind of dream for awhile but after reading yours, I think I will search for that happy dream!
This is an excellent description of depression! Depression is insidious but it can be defeated. Some fight depression with good sleep, good food, friends, activity and thinking positive thoughts. I used to have depression often but now, with God in my life, a husband who is loving and caring and by keeping busy with good activities, I have stomped depression into the ground! Should it come back again, I am ready!
Again, a very good piece on depression and that you have "resurfaced back to lief."
This is short, sweet but beautiful. Memories, even though they are sorrowful, have a loveliness and beauty that cannot be explained but find a way inside one's heart. And that is where they will stay until the end.
This is a very well-written piece and you are so right in your last two sentences: "That’s the type of people who have stayed together for fifty or sixty years or thereabout, and when you speak to them, they are simply, a peaceful kind of stability. Their characters, their personalities mesh harmoniously." My husband and I are close in numbers to the first number and we are still very happy and in love.
Looking back, I am blest that I chose my husband. There were several before him that I cared about but the others did not have the similar background and interests that my husband I have and have had, from the very beginning.
Wonderful piece! I hope that many men and women read it!
Lovely and very visual poem! As I read your poem, I can see what is happening and it is light and beauty!
How true it is, when a person's mood changes from "dark to light" just watching the action of flowers and nature.
I like this poem very much and it is a poem that I hope many read because many do not understand what it is like to rely on a wheelchair. At this time, I don't use one but I may in the future and I hope that I will have a strong will, like you!
This is a very interesting and intriguing poem! What you write is true for some; "everything can suddenly change." That happened to me many years ago. The man I was going with, I thought we had a future but someone else came into "my" future and changed everything. I know now that the relationship with the other man was not to be and for good reasons.
Don't be too quick to judge. Let others see your work and even if they don't like it, that is their problem. Just do your best and be happy. Every writer starts out as a beginner. Take a chance and just give it your best shot.
I can see why this poem is a favorite of yours. It is beautiful. Makes me think of a time when I was in love with someone. I still see his smile, his face and hear his laughter. He is gone now; only a memory. I just know that he is in Heaven. He was a lovely man but the man I am married to is also lovely and wonderful and he makes me so happy.
It is nice to have such as memory.
Thanks so much for writing this because it is lovely.
This is a lovely poem, with words that are comforting, loving and true. This poems is also a joy to read because it is descriptive and with words that, I think, need to be said. So many of us struggle, wanting someone to care, someone to turn to and trust.
Thank you so much for writing this!
