Collecting teardrops


Collecting teardrops of little comfort or warmth Shadowing the promises of ribbon shaped clouds floating silently in harmony with my heartbeat My mind drifts softly The darkness comes on a sunlit day, reaching with its hand through this wood framed window streaked in sadness but transparent so that I may see into the fabric of my memories, desperately fighting the fears that slowly form Now I sit here collecting teardrops… so many shed, flowing anguish embedded of a loss, outlining the cracks in my heart, etched in tomorrows, lost to yesterdays, when today you are gone

Wow I didn't know Charma left, how sad she was such a gifted writer, this is a wonderful tribute I hope she reads it. Soup mail me I'm out of touch with why so many are leaving!

Every cloud has a silver lining because the Sun is hiding mischievously behind it until it floats away and revealing the glory of the Sun once again. This poem is most expressive but I don't need to tell you that Chris - you already know...Maria

This saddens my heart . The soup has lost another angel. I wish I had gotten to know her better. Nevertheless I know a kind heart ( angel) when I see one. Charma I hate to see you go and you will be missed big time:( Alexis
