If I only have one more day of life, I want everyone I love to know that, wherever I may be, I will always be there.
Please don’t cry for me, for I used my time wisely. I spent all my time and energy giving you all my love and focus. I did what I could to help others. I sacrificed it all, that you would find a moment of happiness.
I will not go far, my body may not be seen, but my spirit and my love will always be by your side. Know that you are great and I am proud.
To those who have followed any of my journeys, thank you for giving me a piece of your time and, thus, a piece of your life.
One never knows what tomorrow will bring, or even the next moment, but if I shall part this Earth, let me have said my final goodbye.
When I started my blog, I started it with a poem I wrote for one of my nephews. Today, I dedicate this birthday poem to all of my nieces and nephews, but I have wrote it for the birthday boy, another of my nephews. In it, his name. Happy Birthday, Babys! (This is not a spelling error: it is what I call them individually and as a whole)
My First Breath
A simple heart that touched my soul…
Nephews and nieces are the breath that first gave me life.
To know my smile, is to know them.
Hours of pain wiped away with one moment with them.
On this day, one celebrates his birth.
Nothing more to say, except: I am who I am, thanks to…
Loneliness is but a void that cannot be filled. Surrounded by many, but never fulfilled. Alone in your thoughts; alone in your heart.
When you feel lonely, it is not the absence that drowns you, but the presence that cannot satisfy you.
Maybe, you’re misunderstood. Maybe, you’re different. Perhaps, you simply can’t be pleased, because no one knows what you need. Perhaps, nobody really knows you. Whatever the case, you are left standing alone. You may feel forgotten; you may feel uncared for, or not wanted. Even if you aren’t alone, you feel it so.
You seek what you need, looking forward and back in time, for any glimpse of company. You can’t see it in the present, it was never in the past, but the future may not be any brighter.
The company you wish for, may never be found…unless, you set your sights within.
So, be your own best friend; give yourself the love you crave; praise your own accomplishments. And, when you feel lonely, remember that loneliness is temporary. It might come and go. It might seem to linger forever. It may even be killing you. But, it won’t last.
If none of these words are enough to get you through…there is always someone out there. An angel, a hero (whatever you call it), that can fill that dark hole inside you. If you ever forget who that is, remember those whom truly love you. If you can’t think of any…
