Lightening flashing across the ink black sky
Thunder rolling to wake the Gods.
Rain pouring, beating down on the roof.
Warm sunshine on a clear cool day
Breeze skittering through the trees
Orange leaves spinning to where they lay.
Deep azure blue sea
Waves rolling in across the shore
Diamond sparkling sunlight dazzling the eye
Beauty in art, in life
That makes me cry
Treasure glimpsed in each loving stroke
Hugs from friends
Laughter and joy
Conversation that never stops
Hands once held tight by two small boys
Young men whose confidences I now share
Respect and love from each to the other
Learning to be at peace with myself
Accepting that I'm worthy of love
To stop hurting cause I don't count.
Life going on
So's not to stop
It's up to me to make it work
What more could I want.....
except that final thought
The happy ending to kiss me awake.
But maybe I supply the dream
And rise like a phoenix from the flames
And be content being me
For my two American women with love and gratitude for your friendship
