This poem was inspired by a difficult time I went through earlier this year. Sometimes, things end up being much different than once believed, but often, we find we're better off than we could have begun to imagine.


Teardrops on a spiral notebook echo days long gone;
Memories treasured, then mistook; how could I have been wrong?
Destiny is all but faded, lost without a trace,
Life has quickly become jaded; thus, emotions race.
Teardrops on a spiral notebook, flowing like a stream;
Fluid, like a babbling brook made for forgotten dreams.
Plans once set are all but broken, as if nothing mattered;
Hope: the only lasting token, in a life now shattered.
Teardrops on a spiral notebook; its pages marred and stained,
Cluttered by much gobbledygook until no worth remained.
Beauty, now replaced by sorrow has become the trend;
Yet, when I awake tomorrow, I will find a friend.
Teardrops on a spiral notebook, each is sure to dry;
Memories treasured, then mistook, are bound to days gone by.
Destiny seemed all but faded; yet, I'm filled with pride;
I know life cannot stay this jaded with God by my side.

Jill--you got me smiling. This is great.
Yes, they are sure to dry.
You finished this like a fine wine.
Gotta love it--RaeLynn

I needed this message this week... it is difficult at times to step over that hurdle of wiping away the tears and moving on instead of just wishing that things were different while dropping tears upon our notebooks...

Thankful that you know the One that makes the difference.
With God by our side nothing is impossible! There will still
be pain, but He will turn it into joy, in time!...ET

Bitter sweet poem.

Life can throw some amazing curves - but then, when we've gone through, we often find it was for our benefit - excellent reminder to always look ahead. :) Well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
