Dear Friends:

I just want to take a few seconds to say that I am sorry for not keeping up
with my writing and responding to all those who have been such a blessing
to me with your kind words and honest comments regarding the things that I
write about. I intend to spend more time soon...I am just a little busy doing some
Grandma thingy's like knitting for new baby girl on her way!!

A Chance to See {2}


Born to me a vision from afar

You emerged from a longing

Awakened as from a deep dream

A vision of my world renewed;

Taken by the light in your smile

Could never go back, the past reconciled

You reached out with your hand

No obstacle to discourage you;

You cast your doubts upon the water

Sown out to sea, gathered up by the gloom

In your life you sacrificed

You were always committed;

With a cleared-eye vision

You had a true instinct

For what was beautiful

You lived on the other side of silence;

I was showered by this brightness

You revealed in me something more solid

Through your radiance I have grown

I love you for giving me a chance to see.

My friend...I don't get the chance to drop in here as much as i used to, something I hope will be changing over the next few months. However, it is grand to see that you are still composing wonderful pieces such as this. It is an excellent piece with good flow and imagery, but what I really like here is the layers of interpetation...while this piece can easily be read as and insight or inspirational piece, it can also be read as a spritual piece or as a fine bit of romantic verse

Many of us believe there is a reason for our being, a purpose for each of our lives. If that is true, then the miracle of learning from one another, being given "A Chance to See," validates our very existence.

A marvelous write sharing deep insight draped with humanity.

My dear Tinka, you are a literary treasure.

With love and sincere respect,

This is a very true masterpiece. It tells of hope, of faith, and o flonging to see the light at the end of tunnel. I like the positiveness of these words, and especially at the end. There is a messgae here for all of us to "see" that we are in God's good grace, and He will show us the way to the light to help brighten our way. Thank you for sharing Tinka, this is absolutely beautiful.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love and who love you, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie
