 Poetry and Stories


Did anyone think I would lie down and die?
Not I!
Yes, I lost my first-born son, my parents, and the love of my life
And yes, I have suffered misery, sadness and strife.
But my dear ones in Heaven
Know of my life here on Earth
And I will make them proud of me
With all that I am worth.
How can I accomplish this?
What shall I do?
It's simple,
I will to myself and to all others
be true.
With this in mind, it seems
That wherever I go
Smiles are returned to me
I feel the warm glow.
Sure, hard times will reappear
But God and my loved ones
Forever are near.
So here I go again
See me smile!
And to all my poetry friends
Who are so true
Please let me repeat
May God bless you.
Remember that you have helped me to survive
Day after day
So though I may take some time off
I will never go away.
