I took this photo as well, and named it
'Inspiring Moments'
When I read your comments, on my Thank You and So Long write, the inspiration and caring that I felt was overwhelmingly touching. Each of you honestly did humble me, and I cried, but they were tears of joy not sorrow.
Thank You so very much!

You Took My Breath Away


You took my breath away;
you humbled me; and I cried-
Your words of sincerity spoke
to my soul-
My heart ached; in assiduous beats
of goodbye

'Tis the season of goodness; And
as cold as it seemed-
There came a light; Shining through
the darkest of times-
While the shadows fell silent; An Angel
found its way-
to warm and comfort me; so  I could
share my rhyme

Mere words etched; Scratched into
the crevices of life-
They've become the truth to who I
really am-
Gift me a piece of lead- and I'll
mark my world-
Show me an opened door; And I'll
not let it slam

I've been rebirthed to a voice
in verse-
An offering in which on my own
I couldn't touch-
You took my breath away; You
humbled me; And I cried-
For all the tears; I once again say,
'Thank You, Thank You All,
so very, very much'

Well, you choked me up yet again, Lisa. As I have already said, I will truly miss you. Your words have been an inspiration to me and your strong writes about our soldiers have been straight from the heart and like a clear vision into their souls. You write about freedom, something that seems to slip away just a little bit more every day due to apathy and an underlying desire to crush it. Your words ring like a bell for liberty and right and your humble spirit never fails to recognize that without devine intervention, we would never make it through the difficult times. I wish you would stay, because when you go you leave a huge empty space here that cannot be filled. May your continuing journey reward you with health, love and happiness.
Take care,
