Weeping Willow Part # 2


The line was drawn today in stone
He is the one who soon be gone
Tears were descending her face
She fought for her rights with grace
She has not lost her dignity
She faced the hard reality
You my friends unbeknown to you
You have helped her too
The “Weeping Willow” as device
I gave to her with all of your replies
She read and understood each line
She cried but we know she will be fine
Forgive my move that I did do
Forgive me that I haven’t told you
Still remains to see the end
But with hope we all depend
The power of our words in love
May have saved today the fragile dove
A miracle perhaps you say
I hope that our words will show her the final way



 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Oh, that's great Helmut! I'm glad she made a decision to change things. It worries me though when you say he soon will be gone. I guess perhaps it may have just been my experience but I was the one who had to leave. Not fair of course, but at least he didn't know where to find me as easily (he always found out where I had been, it seems, a day or two after I was gone from there and had found a new hiding place ...this went on for a year or more) Well, tell her to be safe, okay?

Helmut-
If anything any of us said would
help that girl remove herself from
an abusive relationship ... then
we'd say it all over again.

The only thing is ...
'SOON' ... he'll SOON be gone ...
yesterday isn't soon enough.

Stay in touch with her ...
she may need you now more than ever.
What a kind and caring person you are.
~*Marge*~

This doesn't surprise me that you'd be there for her, with a heart as caring as yours!!! True friends come once in a lifetime and I'm glad she has been blessed with you...as have we all!!

 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

Actually she is leaving him
And soon...we are working on it
She has two little once that need to have a home
We have offered her to help whenever, whatever and however
Thank you all for carring and hoping with me that this will all come to an end soon.
Denise that is horrible to hide for a year, he will not hunt her down. We'll make sure of that.
I know Marge soon should have been yesterday
I wish it was. I do care and I do my best with your help.
Devina, as Balladeer said you are outstanding
Thank you dear

Hugs and Love to all
