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. ~

Children are a Blessing

In my heart are memories
of babies lost along the way,
on the trip to motherhood
that came that blessed October day.

Three angels babies
singing lullabies in heaven above,
while my beautiful son on Earth
brightens my life with love.

Scared to try for another
I held on to my only son,
never thinking God would bless
my life with another one.

Years later I married a man
who is such a blessing to me,
and with him came a brand new son;
you can imagine my glee!

With two special sons
to now to share my life,
my life is complete
as a Mother and wife.

And more sweet blessings
in grand babies too,
to bear hug and tickle
and say "Peek-a boo!"

My life so fulfilled
by family, peace and love;
this is absolutely everything
I've ever dreamed of.
