More Complicated Ramblings...(from the ramble series...)

I laughed when you called me complicated...
after almost  two years
of not understanding you,
and the reasons behind your rhyme
somehow you had deemed me
as being "complicated"...

and I still don't understand,

but perhaps some things aren't meant
to be understood, or explained,
life is what it is, and we can only gain.

The laughter doesn't sound alone anymore
not since the minute you walked back in the door,
and suddenly it felt like it was back then

before "I just called to say I love you"
became our favorite song
I missed you so much even though
you did wrong...

my love did not stop,
nor did it fade,
I believed,
even when you said that I shouldn't,
but quit loving you?
I knew that I couldn't.

I heard an old saying, I've learned that it's true
"you have to set it free, before it can come back to you"

So I set you free, but held you near to my heart
allowing myself to be torn apart.
Oh yes, it hurt, I admit it's true;
but I held to my faith
in God and in you...

each time makes me stronger...but after the fall....
we get back up and move on,
because the past is the past
and there is no tomorrow
if remaining in still waters
while the river flows on...



{Chances come and when they're gone
They curse the fools who wait too long
So let's take care of what we have
Before the good we know goes bad
And the beauty fades and just slips away
The dirty air, they dying seas
Will this be the world we leave
To the wild and young
I say, just look at what we've done
And right before our eyes
Today's yesterday
Could be tomorrow's goodbye

Here comes the rain
And it might wash her tears away
But it doesn't change a thing
Like my brother before me
All I can do is write this song
And for her I sing
Chances come and when they're gone
They carve in stone what we've done wrong}


{Lynyrd Skynyrd}

So I set you free, but held you near to my heart
allowing myself to be torn apart.
Oh yes, it hurt, I admit it's true;
but I held to my faith
in God and in you...

allowance is also allowing yourself...wonderful concept

each time makes me stronger...but after the fall....
we get back up and move on,
because the past is the past
and there is no tomorrow
if remaining in still waters
while the river flows on...

amazing ending, with much possiblity even more then hope...

Tremendous write

but quit loving you?
I knew that I couldn't.
========================

So I set you free, but held you near to my heart
allowing myself to be torn apart.
Oh yes, it hurt, I admit it's true;
but I held to my faith
in God and in you...

each time makes me stronger...but after the fall....
we get back up and move on,
because the past is the past
and there is no tomorrow
if remaining in still waters
while the river flows on...

==================================


My my... so much of this hit home for me...
so many mirrors...
you "ramble" with wisdom Donna-girlie...
and with your heart on sleeve honesty...which is what makes the reader feel the words and sincerety in which you offer them....


and this......

and there is no tomorrow
if remaining in still waters
while the river flows on...



thats an I WISH I HAD WROTE THAT kinda verse.

oh and I do wish I had....
you should use that for your new sig.

powerful purging poetess.
RAMBLE ON!!

I would love to live as a river flows, carried by the surprise of its own unfolding.

Oh somy. Your ramblings are passion vines wrapped round life's weeds and trees. Write it all sis. It's lovely, creekside or in the rapids. Huggins

It's all that is left and all we can do, unless we choose to wallow and stagnate.

I really love the sentiment Donna, and the beauty of it all.

"each time makes me stronger...but after the fall....

  This needs to be said more often and shared,
  because it is timeless. Thank you, Donna, for sharing.
