Queen Eileen Remembers

On day full of doom and gloom
With no strength to leave my room
With no hope to look towards light
With darkness closing in at night
I remember…..

When my heart floods with despair
Burdened by my load of care
When the rose has but a thorn
Wishing I were never born
I remember….

When no effort is worthwhile
On my face no trace of smile
When my heart does naught but weep
For a love I cannot keep
I remember….

I remember, 
A kingdom in which I reign
Where I banish grief and pain
A kingdom where all is light
With rolling hills, verdant, bright 
I tremble….

I smile, for I am a Queen
Only beauty can be seen
Fairies flutter to and fro
Peace and joy is all I know
I tremble….

Yes, 
I tremble with sheer delight
My crown glows with heaven’s light
I am loved, and I am free
For a QUEEN resides in me
I remember!!!!

Eileen Manassian Ghali

A poem dedicated to my friend, FLO Thomas, for her poem, The Kingdom of Ghali. I’m hiding away in my room, but the visit to this poem again, to this magical kingdom, brought a ray of light shining in. Love you, Flo! OXOXOXOXO I tease my family and friends that...I'm really a princess. I tell them, "Haven't you gotten that memo?" They all just laugh at me. Now...I have a wonderful comeback. "You won't even see the PRINCESS in me...on Poetry SOUP...I'm a QUEEN!!!!" Oh...the joy of virtual dreams!
Kindness goes a LONG LONG WAY!!!

    I find your emotional depth & shining heart in this writing to be too mushy for my slightly childish heart. -Sincerely, your Court Jester. ;-)

    It's been a while since I have looked on your page, and boy have I been missing out. : ) This is a sweet, dreamy one. Love the inspiration sprouting. We create our own kingdoms everyday through our imagination and inspiration, I'd say. And through love too, I hope. Gonna check out more of your work lovely lady! Always, Laura

It's been a difficult and busy two days.....I'm soon off to visit my mother-in-law in the hospital, and I just finished cooking and baking up a storm, so I haven't had much time today....I will get back to you soon, dearie. Thanks for all the visits, love, and encouragement. Means the world to me!
