    50 shades of gray, not quite the same, you say. :) Well in the light of days gone by after the questions of asking why. May peace be still your natural way. And tears of joy are all you cry. Peace. :)

    Dearest Donna...I came to this poem late...I'm sorry, but my heart goes out to you! I'm SO SO sorry that you could not bear a child of your own...at such a tender age to go through that knowledge...BUT..you ARE a mother! I feel it...I've felt it in your email messages to me...YOU ARE! A mother is someone who nurtures and supports. My dear...Hugs HUGS HUGS from me.

    Dear Donna, If only YOU knew how my Heart cries for YOU. With the joys of Tomorrow, clouded by sorrow with the pain of a LOVING Heart.We have to talk about the 1st line in the second verse (again). The tears of blood that my heart bleeds; is LOVE and Comfort that YOUR Heart Needs. I LOVE YOU Donna...Harry

    Thanks Craig....writing things down has seemed easier than boring people by talking to them about them for me...most people like you to pretend you have no stones in your pockets...carefree as the wind...I appreciate every kind remark you make...Donna

    Very expressive and emotive..That would be a very bad situation for an eighteen year old woman to face..Thanks for stopping by..Yes, those birds are very hungry..I noticed when it seems that there is going to be rain or a change in the weather that they seem to eat more like they are stuffin' because they may not get to come back for awhile..Thanks for stopping by..Sara

    My heart goes out to you. i know it's not the same thong but you have so many young hearts in your life that helps a bit.I lost my second son at his birth and it was gray clouds for many years. I still think of what he would be like today and would he be best friend with his brother? Warm Smiles, Connie

    I am touched as well, this is an emotional piece. I am sorry for your loss. Did you choose to adopt? You seem like a loving person so I am sure you found other ways to express this part of your being. I am glad you have chosen to be happy. It truly is a choice.
