Soul Dropper

It's been weeks, but you, Royal and Linda have been on my mind... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ If only I could find the words to comfort your grieving hearts, I would gather them all up, put them in a box and wrap it up all pretty, even put a blue plush unicorn on top. HUG it. then send them to you... Sadly I don't :( I know words sometimes aren't enough. When one loses someone they love, does one ever heal? I think I lied in my other poem, saying that time can heal. I don't feel it fully can. When you lose someone who's been in your heart, that hole can never be patched up... I see it as being kept in a chamber of your heart, A place where maybe you alone can reach. Share that pain, and as hard as it may seem, please take comfort to know that Bael is loved. He shares your hearts, beats through you, it would be impossible that he didn't feel that love. Continue sharing that love, and he lives on. I truly believe in this, and I am hoping that even in some tiny way, you can seek comfort knowing that he knew, he Felt how loved he is. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Linda, I hope you don't mind me using "Soul Dropper" That was the term you used in one of my poems from way before, when you told me about what happened, it felt like a part of my soul dropped for you... Again, I'm just truly sorry for your loss and this is one of the best ways I can express it right now.... God bless you both and your family. 04122013

oh gosh, this reminds me, I still have not tried to call that number for LInda. And I see you got a comment from Brian himself down here. Wow, how do you rate, Nikko? Ok, let me read this one now. I had no idea you had one posted since almost two weeks ago!

I would like permission to inc this recent quote of yrs in my nxt kindle ebook.'Reciting your own poem gives it another dimension.I am one who thinks that once a poem is shared,it is not wholly yours anymore, it is like giving a part of yourself to the reader, since they can interpret it any way they want,read it aloud any way they want.If you read it, gives it an actual voice, there is something more of yourself that you give to it, giving more to the audience to ponder on' Pls soupmail reply

much for writing this beautiful poem for them. I can see your beautiful heart and your true friendship through this great write of yours. I also want to thank you so much! I also say, it's true that time can't just heal. I lost my dad 2yrs. ago but when I think of him, it still hurts just like yesterday. Again, thank you so much! God bless you too! love and hugs, Leonora

Oh, and my avatar..haha. You know, I've had several people ask me what it was, which is funny to me because I see it, I guess. ITS ME!...With a face painted in black and green In the picture, I'm sitting in a chair with my elbows on my knees. I'm wearing a black A-shirt(muscle shirt) Hope that helps. I guess the camo is doing its job! Where's Caleb?!

Nikko, I love seeing Bael's name on the poem. My daughter and I mention his name when talking about him, it is a lovely feeling. I will always cherish the lovely time we had with, Bael... you should have seen him, when he was born, a true gift from God, sadly he was not for keeps. Thanks for being there with me, and giving me the little comfort I needed that very moment. It helped when i had to hold my daughter when she was full of tears. You gave me a little bit of strength, I'm glad I did not fall apart the way I wanted that very moment. thank you for this precious poem. And you are right sometimes words are not enough. But, knowing others care, helps us pull through. thank you for the magic feeling when it comes to friendship.. xox~ Linda
