He said,

When you spend your days in solitude and mourning,
when those days roll into nights without even a warning,
and the only comfort is the tears you shed,
and your only companion is the warmth of your bed.


When you finally manage to venture out
and you see the whole world is moving about.
When the only thing that keeps you upright is the anger,
when your tears spring forth from the gentle smile of a stranger,
when that stranger’s gaze shows a familiar recognition
that seems to tear down your self-imposed inhibition.

When the sorrow in her eyes mirrors your own,
and your heart no longer feels alone,
and you know without a doubt you’ve finally grown.

Gone are the days of feeling dejected,
of trying so hard and still being rejected.
When the stars align on the right side of destiny
When you think ‘all I want is to give her the best of me’
As you revel in the smiles
at the corners of her eyes.

When every moment with her helps to heal the pain
and the burden falls from your shoulders like summer rain

when the promise from her lips the truth discloses
like the promise of the bud that bursts into roses.

When all your worries fade into her warm embrace
and you memorize every line, every nuance of her face
when you think of old pains and there is not a single trace..

When the core of your essence has been revealed..
Then and only then will you know you are healed.

  1. Awesome, i can remember going through that pain, that emotion, and sadness, and then I wrote this poem;


    Sometimes I feel so crazy now
    especially at night so very alone
    My heart and soul feel so empty
    As my thoughts just seem to roam

    It seems so entirely different these days
    How my mistakes I seem to repeat
    Whenever I lead with my emotions
    Not really evaluating what my eyes see

    It seems I become more uneasy now
    No longer sure if I should take the chance
    As it seems each time I lead with my heart
    It always ends in another broken romance

    So I think I’ll hold still for the present
    Placing my faith in God that I will not slip
    And the wife I have asked him for
    Will come into my life with a lasting bliss.

    I was tiring of doing things my way, running the streets and coming up with the same results. I just needed to have one and only one in my life…so I asked Him to find someone for me to be my one and only…this was written 39 years ago….in January 1977, and I was married in June 1977, and still together. I let him choose and waited on his decision.

    It is one of my most favorite poems from a book I published call “When Each Day I Write Of You.”

    I love the way you write from the heart genuinely! Keep doing it, you will write thousands of gems as I have over the years. Our gifts are treasures that no one can ever take away because they are ours alone even though we may share…they are US! May your day be blessed with a blossoming peace and joy, you are valuable let someone come to you and earn your love! God bless dear sister!
