If God brought you to it,
He will get you through it.

09 April 2011


a distant star glimmers
the coldness of the night
makes me shiver
i hear you whisper
i shudder at the thought

you live in my heart
you never left
that's why i still hear you
and feel your love as
cold air embraces me

every time i lay awake
anxious at uncertainties
you rush to ease my mind
if only you could 
wipe away my tears

memories of rainbows and
of echoing laughter
unfulfilled dreams and
promises lie in their wake
bittersweet remembrance of past

its not easy but you'll manage- i know, the sky knows, everybody knows.. learn how not to look back and it starts with forgiving yourself! the truth if revealed might be even more precarious for you to handle than it already is so take stock- enjoy the breeze of his presence and god will never test us to our limit.. for a tree to grow, many leaves must be shed.. thank you for warming up my blog my dear friend..

fiveloaf, each "visit" is a delight and i always enjoy the breeze. there's no more pain, no more "what if's"... i am just so glad to have experienced that kind of love in this lifetime. it only shows that true love transcends death. it feels good to know that he still watches over me and the kids. he will always stay in our hearts.

thanks for the heartwarming message. :)

this is free verse, yet felt like a form. Bing, I think this beautifully poignant story in verse is true and not just words. But that star, it's twinkling for you :) so your smile is what gives it the reason.

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
