summer surprise

I hope to get back to poetry in the next few days. It is the end of the school year and so busy. I have just got back from our Arkansas State Special Olympics.. I am exhausted but had a wonderful time. It is so wonderful to watch and touches your heart so much!! Powerlifting is my favorite event, our kids train for it all year. Three of them took all gold and one all bronze, they have worked so hard and I am so proud of them!!! I hope everyone is doing well and I just wanted to share with you one of the things that is very special to me!!! Thanks to all who visits my site!!

the sun shines brightly
as the shadow starts to grow
barn raising

It is the first thing I think of when I wake up
and the last thing I think of when I go to sleep
It is in my dreams, in my mind, in my heart..
The world is passing by me as I am in my own world
not hearing, not seeing, just thinking....
I can not get away because it is everywhere I look...
Wondering how to break the cycle of my
Unhealthy Obsession.....

Time on the clock
stands still on Monday
memories of time
that never was-
secondhand broken....

My phone rings
I look at the caller id to see who it is
Upon answering it
I hear "what are you doing"?
I give a response
and as we talk ,
I think about all of the talks we have had
and all the talks we will have
knowing that we are not getting any younger
I hear her say "Did you watch Grey's Anatomy last night"?
Then we proceed to talk about if Izzy will really die or not,
I laugh as we share a fun moment talking about one of our favorite shows
and I know that it is not only MY MOM, that I am listening to
She is also my best friend.....

I have a wonderful mom who has always been there for me and I love her with all my heart. I know how fortunate I am to have her and how very blessed my life has been because of her.
Happy Mother's Day to all of the women who has ever loved a child. Happy Mother's Day to anyone who has called someone MOM..

whisper softly
my heart flutters wild
tell me of life ahead
secure from the past
married hands

This feeling I have
the one that keeps taking me by surprise
This pain in my heart
the one that causes this overwhelming need to cry
The insanity in my mind
the one that makes me not sleep
I take all the pieces of my heart
and all the pieces of my mind
Putting the puzzle back together
thinking I have completed it
Then you walk by and knock it off the table
Now I am looking for the glue
to keep the pieces together
So when I fall
I will still be whole....
