Please Remember Me.. (Originally written In 2006)

Lost inside a lifeless body – so tired and so weak

Although there is so much to do or say

I am unable to move and barely able to speak

I see you look at me with such pity and despair

Do you not realize I too feel it is not fair

Please know I am the same person inside

I did not ask for this to happen on this ride

There is so much I wish I could tell you and say

Emotions to express to you that have not gone away

This illness and stroke has robbed me of a sound mind

 Ravaged my body – making me wither away every time

However my soul is still alive – scared and so very lonely inside

I pray that you know how much I love you and appreciate what you have done for me

I value and enjoy your company

Although it seems that I do not know and cannot show it

I feel you here and know that it tears at your heart

 If you hold on to the good memories – we will never be apart

 If God should call me home soon when my time does come

I know you will be sad but you’ll understand

For my body is tired and this fight is so hard to endure

Know that you have done all you could my dear

Remember me as what I used to be – I ask of you

Don’t let the good memories be drowned out by this time of suffering

I will always be the woman you remember me to be

Your love and support will set me free

Dedicated to Stella Myles

My Sweet Little Angel

Precious Friend who I hold so dear

A love so strong – it can bring me to tears

Companion and confidant – real and true

Without you in my life I don’t know what I would

Many years you have been by my side

Even when life became a wild and crazy ride

Loyal and loving – you comforted me so

How to thank you – I really don’t know

A kind and gentle spirit – a true friend you are

Traveling with me no matter how far

Quiet and sensitive – always calming me

How therapeutic your touch can be!

Happy sounds and cuddly moments we share

Our friendship a gift that is quite rare

Others wonder – they say you are are just a pet

An animal it’s true

But I truly owe my strength and sanity to you

Do you know how you are loved and cared for so?

A gift from God to rescue me and show how to love

You are not just a pet after all you truly will be missed when you go.

Googling Me and Discovervies – War: Why The Destruction

I was bored and just flicking through internet today while waiting for supper to be done and I decided to google my name (you know we have all done it, lol)..

I came across a poem on a site I wrote before I was even married – wow..

I though I would share it with all my followers:

War: Why the Destruction

War: Why the Destruction

Who’s battle are we fighting in vain?

All of this power and resources used to cause such pain

Do we really know what the troops are fighting for?

Or is there something we have not been told – something more?

So many innocent lives lost to this war!

Sent to fight a battle without being told the true reasons

Why is not wanting to go into this blindly treason?

Families are torn apart

Not knowing what is happening being kept in the dark

Wanting to know where their loved ones are – fearing that fateful call!

Young people killed or taken hostage by the enemy

Many forgotten – assumed dead – how can this be?

Civilians killed by American hands

Others forced to leave their homes and lose their land!

What will this all accomplish? – it has to be asked!

The impact and devastation of this war are sure to last

Lives will never be the same when this is done

Hatred and anguish will still be present when the troops are gone!

Fighting violence and hate with the same is just insane

Truly it is not the way to end this deadly game

What is it that they want to leave behind?

For the message will be etched in history for all time!!
