– Caught in Limbo

So many friends across the globe

Whose warmth I hold most dear

All wish me well and send me strength

But none of them are here


Around me there are goats and sheep

And deer up on the brind

Crows that fly high overhead

Then hover on the wind


In a world so overpopulated

Where are those crowds so vast?

For I’ve not seen a single soul

Since Monday evening last


I’m alone, imprisoned here

By another’s dire deeds

Serving out my sentence

Whilst my man attends his needs

There is no correspondence

Nor means to fly away

I must remain because the law

Says here I have to stay


One day I hope to start anew

Begin afresh and strong

Rebuild a life of tactile friends

And sing a brand new song


‘til then it’s lonely Friday

Saturday, Sunday too

The sod’s caught me in limbo

And there’s nothing I can do.

Ruan ~
A song is being written as I write. A new beat for
you in time and harmony. Hugs & Love abundant
for you to find happiness within.

Trust what Lily has told you, for she is a very "Loving Soul,"
with such kindness in her whole being. She is of Love & Light.
You will be in my prayers!

I have my passport and if I had the money Ruan

I would be there darlin' - trust me. Like

someone told me "in a New York second."

All I can do is offer my hugs and love from afar

For I have also been there and done that on what

you are going through.

Enormous wishes to be there with you!

Love and Light


P.S. words have meaning when said, but to hold

a friends hand and give a shoulder without a

spoken word means so much more.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 9/1/2012
Solitude has its benefits. The hustle and bustle of family and friends gets old and doesn't lend itself to creative thinking. Alone with nature is where I want to be. But then you have other problems I can't solve––only you can do that.

Reviewed by Mr. Ed 9/1/2012
I hope you'll be able to sing a new song very soon.

What a sad state of affairs for you to be stuck in, Ruan. Damn! I'm sorry.
