I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Tears of Sorrow
We all experience tears of sorrow by losing a loved one through death, divorce, an argument between friends or family, a romantic relationship ending, a career change, or other means.
Many of us blame ourselves living life with a feeling of guilt.
We feel like we are moving forward then suddenly remember a moment where we feel remorse.
We wonder what we could have done differently. Our mind begins asking "If only..." questions.
We can not Change the Past
We can not change the past. It is over. We can not do or say anything to alter the outcome.
Our past is filled with memories stored for a purpose. Perhaps to make us stronger.
We are all human beings capable of making mistakes. Nothing in life is perfect. The road is not simple.
We need to accept challenges of each new day without dwelling on events before they happen, not setting ourselves up for disappointment.
Focus on being ourselves giving life our best.
Sharing Family Time Together is Gone
Family members go separate ways.
The past days of families spending time together seem to be gone.
Times like watching television, playing games, cards, listening to music, other forms of entertainment, or simply sharing dinner together are no longer part of a family's routine.
Life has a whole new set of standards than the ones we were raised to believe in as children.
We will be Alone
There are times we will be alone. Value this time and do something for ourselves.
Read a book, try photography, paint a picture, write a poem, learn golf, or anything else.
We can create our own happiness. We do not need to depend on others.
Discover the Meaning of each Memory
Let our memories unfold in the beauty of the world.
Let them live within us not pushing us down.
Each memory, good or bad, holds a buried treasure. Discover the true meaning of each one, storing them like the treasure at the end of the rainbow.
Worth more than gold to cherish forever.
