I reached for you

In my dream

But you were gone

I heard you call my name

But in the darkness 

I could not find you

I pleaded for you to appear

But you didn’t 

I fell to my knees

In anguish


I felt a warm blanket

Fold over my shoulders

I cried into its softness

Until I had no more 

Tears to cry

Acceptance of my now 

In that moment 

Peace arrived

I knew from deep within 

That everything

Would be just fine

Many have shared that I am the strongest woman they know. I would disagree... when life kicks you in the teeth there is only one place to look and that is UP! I will be sharing my poetry, random thoughts, my hopes, my dreams, defining my strength and my faith. I'm honest, raw and real. I'm writing more for me, but perhaps someone will find my words that will help you in a profound way
