I've been writing poetry from the age of 12. It has, and always will be my outlet, my voice. Join me on my journey . . . I can write about almost anything. :) ~ Life doesn't come with a shiny new book; no users manual of answers to find with one look. Life comes with doors that open and shut; and paths laid before us to be followed or passed up. There's things we can learn and things we may teach; hearts that may find us and souls we may reach. Guaranteed on this journey are teacups of tears; and pains that might hurt us may age us by years. But the beauty of life, love, laughter and giving; come from serving hugs on a platter each and every day we're living. ~

"In Good Company"

Imagine . . .
if you would.

You start your day the usual way.
With the sounds of alarms and children's padded feet.
Sleepy yawns of good morning
and smells of coffee brewing.

You sigh . . .
as the sun slowly rises.

A happy sigh of contentment.
Sure life can be crazy.
Nobody ever said it wouldn't be.

But this . . .
all of this . . .
is worth it.

You have found good company.
Here in your heart,
and here in your life.

Your family.
Your friends.
Your faith in yourself.

Better than any fortune cookie . . .
is this fortune that grows.

These precious memories . . .
the priceless ones that live on
in the faces of all that you love.

It is here . . .
right in front of you.
All of it.

You have found good company here.
