An extremely emotional, heartwrenching write, Annette! It's a helpless feeling to watch someone you love suffer and pass away. I know, I've been there...my heart breaks for your sadness.

This poem inspires. Having worked at a nursing home, I understand the beauty to be offered at any age. I wish everyone did. Love the ending on this piece! Hugs,

A touching poem. You capture emotions we all go through in life. This especially reminds me of a friend who lost her son. It wasn't a natural death. He was shot. Her pain was/is unmeasurable. I imagine it is harder to accept when someone is taken unnaturally. Love and Hugs,

It is just human nature to feel sad when someone passed away. But there is a deeper meaning why this event took place. It is just a matter of time, but in the end we will be them too in an angelical world I called nabse...AOUIE

My sweet Dog Joy a cocker spaniel of 13 years died in 2003, and I know she is up in heaven waiting for me. Her dad has gone there before me, so he is keeping her waiting for me too. I do so love animals.
Reflections of Fear (Poetry) - 5/15/2008 3:39:03 PM
Do not fear this devil liked creature. He is trying to scare you and thinks it is fun. The big bad monster must go and leave you alone. You need a life full of fear and can find it. Just don't let it worry you and live life to the fullest and do what you want to do. Life is too short to have scares like this bother you.
Promise (Poetry) - 5/15/2008 3:36:33 PM
What a terrible and horrible thing he did to you. All you had to go through, but love came round a second time and surprised you and it surely has to be better than the first was. You deserve love and finding it much better you can go on with your life and treat him special be be treated special by him too. Lots of luck, and be happy always. Trust in God always too. Prayers for you. Lois Christensen

Sounds so dreamlike but doves are real and meaning of love is real and so I write to you wishing you future happiness and to help you go on with your life. Good write**********

To go quickly and peacefully like my hubby did was do much easier than you described here, but I can sympathize with you and know it gets easier and he did leave a sign behind, a ring found, and mine left a butterfly to remind me he is with me in spirit. A blue monarch butterfly is my symbol that tells me he is still living and alive and with the angels in his heavenly home. nice write and flows so easily and ends so in tragedy but we know it gets easier with time. I bear with you in your gried still and always will.

This one brought back some bittersweet childhood memories of my own. This is just more proof that history repeats itself over and over throughout the generations until someone is brave enough to rewrite it. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for such a wonderful and thought provoking poem about the truths of our world.
Grey-haired Old Man (Poetry) - 9/22/2007 1:05:04 AM
This is a very insightful and powerful poem. It's very well crafted. It's such a shame for inocents to be stolen especially by a elder, someone that should've been a protector and care giver.
Reflections of Fear (Poetry) - 9/11/2007 6:39:08 PM
I am quoting a verse in the bible which says, "Our God is not a God of fear, but of perfect love and a sound mind". I am sorry I cannot tell where I got that memorized verse except that it is in the New Testament somewhere after Acts. I hope it gives you comfort. It gives me comfort and hope.
Grey-haired Old Man (Poetry) - 9/11/2007 6:32:49 PM
Thank you for saying that. Grey haired old men sure can be hateful.
Far (Poetry) - 7/3/2007 1:43:36 PM
Only one who has been there can captivate the pain and anguish at the loss of a loved one. Yet in writing like this, a permanent mark is made for others to cherish years after. That is the power and the relevance of poetry.
She (Poetry) - 6/3/2007 3:07:43 AM
Annette, this is very touching, you my dear is a wonderful writter who knows how to write from the heart. Excellent write , just excellent. Don't stop now.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...what one esteems to be trivial and insignificant another can find and open a whole new world. Lovely poem and so true...enjoyed.
Grey-haired Old Man (Poetry) - 10/16/2006 6:30:12 PM
Wow! What a powerful write, one that many people would rather not hear about, sort of out of sight out of mind, or if it isn't them they don't want to hear about it. This is the kind of issue that I have dealt with more than what I would ever have dreamed I would to. But every child deserves a safe childhood, and if that safety has been invaded they deserve a safety haven, I try to be that for my students...very realistic poem.

So many reasons why this can happen. Physical ailments, mental illness, low blood sugar, spiritual deception, differing personality types, bouts with gas, love askew, etc. Like snowflakes, we all seem the same from a distance, but up close we are all so very different. I especially liked the line: "the morning fog as a shroud of grey that settles in their soul" Very Nice! I felt this line like dew in my soul! Regards Richard

Grey-haired Old Man (Poetry) - 1/17/2006 6:20:41 PM
Boy, can I relate to this one! For me it's the betrayal of trust that's so hard to deal with. Little girls should be able to trust their elders, especially relatives, and it's a violent shock when you find that you can't. Thanks for the poem.

I kept highlighting lines to post and comment, "Oooh, I relate to this stanza." or "Oh, that one really got me." But it's the whole dog-gone poem. It's so universal for the wounded heart. Splendid! ~~Nordette

Children can be the cruelest creatures on the earth. But there always seems to be at least one, who is wise before their years, who go beyond labels and exterior visions, to see a soul, waiting to be nutured and brought to life... great write...
Take My Hand (Poetry) - 3/6/2005 7:08:40 AM
This brought back so much memories when my girl was in elementary school. There was one proud mother in there who did not want anyone to help her family. She often sent her son in ragged clothings to school, and she thought the child should be proud to wear it like her too. What she didn't know about were the bullies in the school yard. Some children are very cruel. As a result of the teasing and tauntings the child had gained very low self-esteem.
By Christmas time, we (the other mothers got our money together) just left our gift of a new jacket and some new clothes; and a turkey in front of her door; and we knocked on her door and ran away. She had not the means of knowing who the giver was, so she had kept that and gave her boy the new jacket and clothes to wear. We (the rest of the mothers) were happy that she had kept the gift for the sake of the child.
Some mothers are too proud to receive help; but they had forgotten the basic necessities that their children should have. No children should be denied of that.
A great thought-provoking write, Annette!

Blame (Poetry) - 2/19/2005 6:09:57 PM
Very well written... with a message everyone knows... We have no one to blame but ourselves, but we will survive.... the ones that will blame us, because they will not live long, will be our children and grandchildren... that's the most tragic blame, we're destroying our children's future....
