There is nothing I can add that has
not already crossed my mind to say.
I only know you by your poetry
and replies I read you each and every day.
I feel I know you better than some
I've known for years.
because you share so deeply the
secrets of your heart,
I know that you are very strong
so I will shed no tears.
and look forward
to all the wisdom you
continue to impart.

Paul,
Thank you so much for your beautiful response which I am going to share with my children, simply because you said exactly what I've been telling them. I don't want them to shed any tears, and I think I've gotten through since they joke now about my silly fumblings. I only want laughter.

Where there is faith,
there is love.
Where there is love,
there is peace.
Where there is peace,
there is GOD.
Where there is GOD,
there is no need.

Liz, beautiful poem, and I am pleased to see that you are looking on the brighter side of things, instead of seeing it as a curse.  God does take, but gives a whole lot more!  God bless you *hugs*

WhtDove, Thank you also for not responding

Hoot, you have very kind words, which I appreciate very much.

Echo, Thank you for reading and I'm sure you appreciate the poem

I think everything has been said that can be said, especially for not having responded. So now we can move on to other poetry
Write on!
Liz
