Sometimes love comes from a place we never expect it to and opens our hearts and heals them.


 

 

Love and Fate

 

I never wanted to join anything
A friend saw my pain
Her love and understanding
made me want to live again

Just a small group of people
Each becoming close friends
As we chatted to each other
Using poetry to help my heart mend

Didn't want to become involved
Didn't want to get too close
So held myself in check all the time
But polite and friendly to those I chose

From childhood poetry has been
my way to expresss my life
When I was much younger
Full of all happy times; no strife

but then it started turning dark
As life became unbearable
when married to a drunk
Abuse became my mantle

So on and on I lived
In a state of total fear
Until the day had come
My heart had filled with tears

I made a place for my heart
A shell tough and strong
Would not let anyone in for fear
Abuse would have begun

As the days became a week
Week turned into a month
Months into a year
I noticed that our friendship
had dried up all my tears

I never really noticed it myself
but my shell was wearing thin
I felt a stirring in myself
My heart wanted to start loving again

I don't know what you saw in me
That first day we met in the chat
I would stay for awhile but was scared
I don't know why you kept coming back

I didn't realize back then how much
I missed you when you were gone
I didn't want to believe that from you
I would not have to run

Your patience and understanding
All came shining through
My self-made shell was letting love in
As I fell deeply in love with you

I thank the heavens each night that
Fate led us together on that special day
I don't know what would have become of me
If you had chose to go away


So in anticipation I too continue to wait
for I know our love has grown
And I know what will happen the day
When fate and love meet
we'll be together were we belong

WOW! Just BEAUTIFUL, and I hope "HE" does you "NO" wrong, I can SO RELATE, from an Abusive past... When hurt, trust is underlying and deeply hidden and it takes much to give again, especially when our hearts were trampled on and pain was so deep! With scars or none, the pain was done! I can relate and I wish your heart and soul HAPPINESS, CONTENTMENT, TRUST and WISDOM! Kath... you have a F.B. page? I will share my ph.# with you if you want too, up to you...I understand that pushed feeling too, and backing off, but remember...YOU can push so far.. when someone reaches out... and YOU could be the one to lose out...Just saying Hun! Cause I care and I am now aware...

Blessings, Love and Peace, Your Friends, SHEEoxo
P.S. The "STRONG" Will Survive and Happiness is around your corner! :)Have a Super GOOD Day!♥

What a comforting poem of hope for those who have been hurt this way. It was not a smooth path, but the cloud passed, and in speaking of those days you leave the reader with undertones of peace and renewal.
Blessings,
Christine

Heartfelt poetry that found a silver lining after storm clouds had gone away. God bless
Reviewed by Mark Lichterman
Sad things, bad things can hit like a speeding train, but the good things? Sometimes the good things, the things that can change your life, can lift your life, sometimes these things are hard to perceive because, always waiting for the ax to fall, we become fearful of being hurt again. I hope for you, my new friend, that clouds are parting and blue sky is showing once more.
