Thank you for your kindness , your love and support the past Year...I love You!!

Merry Christmas to my Den Family"



Mindless beyond the imagined point
I found a space of peace and tranquility
Isolation overwhelms me
Within this perfect emptiness
Sitting here… waiting for midnight to come
I press myself upon you in spirit
Wrapped up in spite of self pity
Dying a million tiny deaths
Zipped up and discarded
I move across my thoughts unknown by you
Thoughts that pulls and lulls me into reflection
With emotions too intense to act
Needles and pins pinching my feet
As my eyes well with tears
Memories come rushing back
You broke a  promise once made
Staring at the walls
Stiffen at the emptiness time has brought
Trembling in this quiet hour
Before going to bed
I walk with myself
Tearful and sad
Thinking… about you

On this Christmas Eve

Tinka, alone is some times what the doctor ordered. Enjoy your solituded as much as your company. If you didn't have time alone, how would you write your beautiful poetry? Hmmm?

Alone doesn't have to be lonely if you love yourself enough to enjoy your own company. I have been single and living alone for so many years, that I could say I am used to it, but instead I will say, the times when I felt the most loneliness were when I had another person in my life and yet, it was as though they were a shell where I was concerned. Approaching them was like stepping into an icy abyss and it would make my soul ache, tearing at every shred of self-respect and self worth I had ever mustered. So in fact, I decided to live alone so that I would not feel lonely anymore...if this doesn't make sense, I understand since, it seems backwards in a way. Knowing a bit of your situation, from what you have written here, I am guessing that you live in that kind of loneliness- unwanted but never free. I hope that in the New Year you will find the strength to walk away from all that and take your life back, learn to live, love and become the source of your own happiness. It is hard to respect our self when we stay in a bad situation for all the wrong reasons. May the blessings of Christmas rain upon you and guide you into the light.

Beautiful work, Tinka. I've heard the poem you read for William. You have a very pleasant voice. I hope to hear more from you.

And Merry Christmas to you.

Repentance is all God asks of us. May you find Christ's peace this day and all through the new year ahead. Merry Christmas. And I love the hymn. Sang
it tonight at Mass when I remembered all of you in my prayers.
