About This Poem


Not long ago my heart was sore
The love I had was here no more

The ache of sadness filled my heart
And with it tore my soul apart

Friends and family came to say
It’s time for you to change this day

Just reach out and take a hand
Show your strength, take a stand 

Special friendships are such a gift
They believe in me, offer a lift

Through my friends I have found
A happy place with love around

When I look in the mirror I see
An amazing woman, I see me
