ENDINGS

My image is cracking
My heart is drying
My strength is falling
My faith is failing
My hope is setting
My dreams are waning
My soul is breaking
My trust is crumbling
My voice is stilling
My ideals are fading
My passion is ebbing
My beauty is aging
My love is wilting
My life is…….ending
And…you are watching…

    This reminds me of "the broken dive swan dance." I don't know if you know which one I'm talking about.. After All The Swan is one of many ballads. I'm sorry you are feeling like this. Hope the pain has faded by now. Next time I stop by. I hope to see the opposite side of this poem. I already see you creating a nice part 2. If you fall, I fall with you. You are something sweet like no other here. AND honest too. I don't understand how someone would allow you to crumble away. Love you Eileen...

    PD.....PD, I'm FLOORED! Seriously...this touched me so profoundly! You are so sweet! Thank you, for passing by and leaving me with these sweet word flowers to make me smile! :) Yes, I'm better...thank GOD! It was a couple of rough days. My poor dear family! They know when I'm down and they bear with me, knowing soon I will be OK again! I'm blessed with them! I won't crumble away just yet, not with such great support as this! I'm sending you BEAR hugs...all the way to TEXAS! XO

    And through this pain, may cheers come from a new sunrise. You can only go up from here.

    This is a very sad piece, how can one who is so dearly loved feel so sad? Allow our Savior's love fill the cracks in your heart and make you feel whole. Hugs Rick.

    Sometimes it doesn't make sense, Richard. I can't even explain it. People don't understand how I struggle, but I do. Yes...if only I'd let Him do that...I would be better, Richard. I know that. Thanks for reminding me. People wonder what is so amazing about Him...His mercy, grace, justice...the list goes on...For me, it is His UNCONDITIONAL love.

    This is so deeply written.It hurts when we feel that somebody is watching our pain and doesnt care..especially if that persona is someone We love.Eileen..i guess there is a kind of beauty which never changes nor fade...that is your inner soul lady.

    Yes.s..that is the worst kind of pain, but I guess sometimes it is just hard to be able to empathize when we don't understand....Thank you for seeing beauty in me...and in my soul! You are beautiful without and within and I do love you! HUGS!

    Thanks, my dear. I've been worried about you. Your last poem disturbed me. I wrote a response there. Please...don't leave. You have so much to give. Love you! OXOXOX
