MY LAST GOODBYE The heart that's within me, still beats, but little by little it's growing weak. my soul is tired and badly hurt. I once loved with all my heart. When I came here - I wanted to stay, I wanted to make a difference and maybe touch a few hearts. Deep down, I hope I have. The dreams I had one day - are now gone. They won't ever return and for that - I will write no more. My fountain pen has gone dry. No more words, through my pen will flow. The poems that I wrote one day, I hope that in your heart they will forever stay. The last piece of my soul - I will share with you today. All the words have been written. Everything has been said. This will be my last goodbye. I will write no other message, there is nothing left to say. To the ones that read my poems and considered me your friend, from the bottom of my heart I thank you for having read my last poem. This will be my last goodbye...

    Lucilla This is an emotional, sad, and heart tugging write. We are all family at the soup, and its sad when one goes away. Thank you for the awesome comment on my Addiction poem.

    Thank you robin for reading this poem. I wrote this at a time I was very sick and thought I was going to die, I'm didn't and I'm still here. I am still not well, but I am here.

    Somehow I started missing you before you even said 'Goodbye." -- The only question left to answer now is - Why?

    What? I just came back Lucilla.... You know many times I had it in my mind. I was totally going to give up writing ALL TOGETHER. If not for the editor at a small town newspaper, that would give me assignments on types of things I've never done! Sweating bullets, and her, if you think you can't.... I'd say no, I got it..., she has been there for me as a major supporter of my writing. I did throw up my hands before, and just took a break for monthes. As writers we need that. I'd re-think it later:)

    I'm back..... The thought of you leaving has struck a chord in my heart. So I had to write a poem for you. I posted it today, and hope you enjoy it, and want you to know that it truly came from my heart with you in mind. :o)

    Lucilla, It is indeed a sad day reading your final write. You have touched the hearts and minds of many with your words of wisdom. Life is not all sunshine & roses that's for sure. But within each rose there is beauty, and you have expressed that beauty through the words of your heart. I will miss your words of wisdom, and the kind comments that you would leave. Though I will forever find joy in knowing that I knew you... My Dearest Lucilla . You were, and always will be a Favorite of mine. <3

    Lucy, you have touched many hearts here. I wish you would not leave. Maybe in the future you will consider, a small hello to all who adore you here. I know by reading the words in your poem you are in pain. I hope it's not us who brought the decision on you. Perhaps it's only writers block. I will truly Miss you Lucy, YOU who knows what Being a VALLEY GIRL -IS ALL ABOUT. Maybe one day when you swing down to the valley you remember this small time Corpus Christi Texan Girl. Always A Fan LINDA

    Dearest Lucy, no poet's pen can run dry as long as his/her heart beats, although sometimes we are hurt and we think it is all over! Your contribution to all of us was great as you have touched our minds and souls! I understand you have been through a lot of pain lately and rightfully you would love to relax for a while and gather strength and when this is done come back, we will be waiting with open arms! GOD BLESS YOU my friend!
