I know her shoelaces do not have loops They may be used as spaghetti in soups A girl who dreams, are tired of getting hurt Each kiss and hug felt right, but she kept alert Her words on paper, dreams of a better place A frustrating feeling has participated in the game with grace Accepting does not mean losing hope, the eagle is flying high Her eyes were always smiling, now she whispers goodbye 24.08.2017 Sun :) - A-L Andresen :) Copyright © All Rights Reserved

A gorgeous poem, Anne-Lise. So well crafted and w/plenty of emotional depth and heft. The woman's plight moves the reader to tears (of joy too.) Your graceful pen writes again. Lovely poetry. Love and peace always.

"accepting does not mean losing hope" - this line spoke to me. We should never lose hope. Keep smiling, dear one.
