DAYS


There are just some days.
The days that stay with us good and bad.
The ones where the memory is so precious we would do anything to go back and have the day again.
And others so bad that however hard we try we can never get rid of them from inside ourselves.
The day that a romance starts, the sparkling sun kissed world that surrounds
The day it ends, when the pain in our heart can only make us scream.
The day of the wedding, that makes us glow with love.
The day that he walked, deserting his wife and kids.
The day that the final exam was passed, and letters came after the name
The day the redundancy tore us apart.
The day the driving test gave us new found freedom.
The day the smash fractured our dreams.
The day the precious baby is born.
The day he leaves home to live his own life.
The day that cancer is told
The day when given the all clear.
These days come and they go
Birth,love,death in a circle of life.
The trick then, to let someone know when there is joy
And when there is pain.
To let someone know, someone who cares, that celebrates joy and holds the pain.
Someone who listens and loves and you know is your friend.
And then, whatever the day the feelings are shared and life can go on.

After all is said and done, life is just a collection of days. You've covered a lot of ground in this piece!

I'm touched by your interconnected days. How elegant and inspiring, Mandy. Thank you, reading this made me shiver. Friends and love are so close yet so far. Days dark and sunlit. How is it for you today? With a mere poem of words, you thrust truth into our vacant hearts and suddenly the day is one of the good ones. Ciao

Hello Fire Byrd,

sharing joy is easy, sharing pain and hurt a lot harder but when we do the load is lessened significantly.
Happy days

Lovely writing, Byrd. In many ways, that is how these little blog groups are for one another. I have felt so much support during the bad and the good in the months of my beginning the new life and my blog and am still amazed at how comforting, how personal these friends feel though I don't know them. They are willing to acknowledge our love and happiness and root us on when there is pain, and we do the same for them. It is really quite a little miracle.

Sharing life with someone that really cares definitely is a treasure.
