I am leaving my last post with all of you. I am leaving Passions. Writing is my only get-away, my relief, and I will still do that. Just I will not be here anymore. I am really going through a rough time right now. I feel like I have lost my place in the world and am unsure of where I go from here. I have so much to deal with and I feel so lonely. So, why leave? Maybe this way I will do what it is I need to do, my purpose. Thank you all for being my friends...I will miss you.


My Last Walk In The Rain

I'm not sure if I should cry or smile at where I've been
Do I look back at the wind and sigh in a lonely kind of way?
Or should I walk on feeling how for a short time I had it all?
Or do I stumble carrying sadness as I walk away?...

Listen and I will tell you of where the roses never die
Where a turquoise sea and a lavender moon lies
I witnessed silver meadows and long golden streets
And, stood in the blue where the sky and the mountains meet...

Oh, and if you think beautiful is an ocean at the break of day
Or when the sounds of the waves then rise and fall
Then you should have been with me when I danced along the waters top
And, I never even owned a pair of wings at all...


I've been places many only wish they had been
But, for the life of me I don't know why it all had to end
Do I smile at the chance I was at least given in life?
Or do I cry for what was taken away one night?...


I know I will always walk on one road and it's this one
For there is no other road to take
Just now I will have to remember what it's like to wake in the night
And, remember how lucky I was with every step I make...

This road now is of the old one just memories divide it
And, maybe what lies ahead will be my place in the sun
Maybe when I can walk again on colorful stones
My journey won't be of a tear-filled one...

If I pass you there and I do not look the same
Know that from here on ahead hope is my new name
I don't know how to wave to you all without crying you see
But, I don't know how to walk anymore and be the best I can be...

If I cannot be in this world and do what my purpose is
Then I must move on until I can find new strength
Please don't think for a minute that I didn't know love personally
I felt it, I did, from all of my friends...


I hope I have touched but just one tiny part of you
I hope my heart and my effort remains
So, understand if I feel I have let the world down
For tonight I've had my last walk in the rain...

this is one of the most beautiful pieces of poetry i've ever read on these pages ......

it is so very wonderfully full, it takes my breath away

i have read you some while you have been here and wish i had read you more but there are so many writers, i can't see my way through to get to all and i appologize for that .... mostly to myself.... because seeing and reading this, shows me that i've missed a very important poet.... one with a lot of talent and an open voice

thank you for this and know that i will be perusing the archives looking for your work.....

i don't know what personal situation has taken you to the point of saying you're leaving here, but whatever it is, be kind to yourself and know that every waking moment has a time and a place

your words will never be erased
from my heart

lovely....... god bless you

oh, and ... if you're not too busy, come back tomorrow and post some more, k? hehe.... i'll be looking for you not to go

Without the experiance of love where would we be? We would have no memories to cherish.
With love it brings hurt with hurt bittersweet memories.

"And, maybe what lies ahead will be my place in the sun"

Saunni, may you find what it is you seek, and be at peace, for your place is in the sun.  You have left an imprint on my heart with your words and yourself.  Come back when you are ready and God Bless.

Saunni

This is truly beautiful, bittersweetly so, but, wonderful writing nonetheless.

I am going through what you are going right now, and I wish you the best, I have no advice, for, each sorrow is it's own type of hell and introspective time, and I know that you need to find your own peace in your own way, so, I understand why you need to leave for a while, but, do come back to us  

Take care,
Melissa~

After reading this I must give this truth to ponder "Friends will always be there to carry you when you can no longer stand on your own" May God bless you in your journey wherever you may roam.

You walked straight through my heart with this one Saunni. Sometimes the physical doesn't touch the emotional. With this in mind I believe your journey will touch many you never thought possible. I hope you find comfort and peace as awe inspiring as this poem. Please turn around from time to time and post us a wave of your hand, a sentiment of your heart. We'll look for you. Always.

Sincerely,
Regina

Hello Saunni
This was such a beautiful yet sad piece of writing and I can understand you taking a break from writing.  I had to do that myself as it was all becoming too emotional.  Your writing has certainly touched my heart many times and I hope you find what it is you are looking for.  Take care my friend........Sue
P.S. Please know that I'm thinking of you and feel free to write to me whenever you want to.

Saunni, May the wind always be at your back, and the sun shine on your lovely face. Take heart sensitive one. Hugs, Chris
