Slashing my heart without thought
Not one drop of blood is shed
Words flow forth....boiling hot
Not one blister does embed

Break my will so it won't fly
Not one single bone is set
Crush my dreams and watch them die
There's no hope to resurrect

A painful blow to my pride
No bruise to mark the impact
Smashing the tales that I confide
Of the pieces....I've lost track

Every scar held within me
I'll be cautious not to pause
Careful not to let you see
To save you the pain you cause

"Pooh's Update"
Shane is still in the hospital fighting two infections, one in the fatty tissue and they suspect there is an infection in the fluid that he is retaining as well.  He continues to take massive doses of pain meds and antibiotics and has been taken off the transplant list until the infection is gone....keep praying friends....Thank you.



 Hold me for yesterday
Kiss me for tomorrow
But love me for today.

Wow... I'm ina bit of a hurry just skimming through trying not to miss too many poems. =)

But wow.. I just had to stop and type a sec., and tell you how wonderful this was.  Thanks for sharing.

 "The storm rises up when the shadows descend
every beat of my heart every day without end
I will stand like a rock I will bend till I break
till theres no more to give if thats what it takes
I will risk everything I will fight I will bleed
I will lay down my life if thats what you need
every second I live thats the promise I make"

I have no idea who wrote this... tell me if you know. =)

damn...oh girl...this one takes my words...and breath...my sweet soul sis...
you went there this time...and its way deep.
I truly hope and pray for you that this process is healing for you...as it is for me...we have talked about this...I know this comes hard for you...I want it to be good for you...never at the expense of you.
I promise it gets easier...once your trust your self with "you".
thoughts and prayers with you and Shane, and his family.
take care sweets, jm

 Well the sun sets gently on your shoulders
And it makes me want to touch you there.
And the light in your eyes makes me feel
Like there's something much better out there
Something kind...
And I know someday I might be looking around
Trying to find some purpose
Well purpose it can't be that hard to find
As long as I've got the wind...
The wind and your love to carry me.

You write so well, such power and passion can only come from the heart.

As always I have only good thoughts for you, Shane , and his family.

Jeffrey, Denise and Marina allow me to thank you for your continued prayers sent Shane's way.  They are greatly appreciated.

WhiteNite* Thank you so much...this was very hard to write and your words mean alot to me.

Janet* Went there....and lived to tell   You said I could...thank you.  When it's written and the words are looking back at you from the paper they aren't quite so "scary"....I'm sure you know what I mean.  Thank you for your encouragement...and your prayers for Shane.  *AW Hugs*

EagleOne* Thank you...it's the only way I know how to write....but I'm learning that it's hard to "fly" with all the baggage so "Watch for Falling Objects" as I unload...with the help of you and so many others.  Thank you for your prayers and your thoughts.


 Hold me for yesterday
Kiss me for tomorrow
But love me for today.

*Butterflies

First of all this was an exceptional poem. It was full of such powerfully intense emotions that also took my breath away. You capture beautifully in words the things i don't dare say but feel. Thank you!

My thoughts continue for Shane and his family as well as for you. May the love of the Lord bless you all during this time. Plus my guardian angel above is watching out for you all as well (i know it). Take care and God bless.

Love ya,
AMY

Marge* Thank you   and thank you  

Rich* Thank you for reading and for your prayers...I've posted an earlier poem and the post is listed as "Passions Family...see what your prayers have done" or something to that effect...it will tell you everything that everyone else here knows about Shane...my pooh  

Amy* You are a sweet one!! Thank you so much and I thank you for putting in a good word with your gaurdian angel   she's sure looking after you sweetie!

Hoot*Thank you so much, as a nurse I'm sure you can relate on a level that most cannot...you are an amazing person to care for those that are in this position...God Bless you Hoot  

P.S.  I received the honor of meeting the mother of the young boy that passed away and donated his liver to Shane a year ago, So I now have seen the other side of the story...I shared the poems here about Shane and noticed today that she had posted on the first poem that I posted for Shane...I was deeply moved by this woman and her family that gave so much and continue to do so.


 Hold me for yesterday
Kiss me for tomorrow
But love me for today.
