I received this poem today, and I really just wanted to share it with all by blogger fiends.......... I already shared it with my bestest friend and my best friends, you may not know it, but in the difficult times over the past months, when I was left with no option but to file for divorce, you all helped to keep my head held high, and gave me something to look forward to, your blogs, each and every one special in your own way, to my darling Ratz, you have your whole life ahead of you and you will go far, you are smart , kind and considerate, to Yaya, who I wish my children had the good fortune to have as a grandmother, they never had any of their own, to my pillar of strength Maggie for her amazing strength and wicked sense of humor, who did me the honor of inviting me to do a guest blog ........ which for me is better that winning an Oscar........ and means so much more....... have a read at http://grandmayellowhair.blogspot.com.......I am still not over my castle experience........ to Pennie my spiritual inspiration............ and to all those who are part of my blogging family this is for you.......
I forgot what life is all about ...
I forgot what it meant to cry ...
I forgot that pretending to be happy
Doesn't make you happy ...
And that pretending to be smart
Doesn't make you smart ..
I forgot that you can't just forget the past
In fear of the future ...
I forgot that you can't control
Falling in love ..
And if you really do fall in love,
Then you can't make yourself fall
OUT of love ..
I learned that I can love ....
I learned that it's okay to mess up ..
And it's okay to ask for help .
And it's okay to feel like hell .
I learned it's okay to complain and whine
To all your friends for a whole day ...
I've learnt that sometimes the things
You want most,
You just can't have.
I've learnt that the greatest thing
About life isn't the parties or the hook-ups ....
I've learnt that sometimes,
The things we want to forget,
Are the things that
We most need to talk about
I've just learnt that my family
Are the most important people to me
In the entire world ...
I wouldn't be who I am today
