Even if a storm
in anger and hurt,
don’t walk away
No matter what
happens in any
I’m on your side
Take my hand
Feel comfort in
Let me trace
the tears you cry
You should know
our world is the
only place I
choose to reside
But if you leave,
You’ll come back,
like the perennials
return to their gardens
aren’t only found

Lovely poem, Lauren!
Thanks so much, Betty! 💕
You’re welcome! I noticed that you’d somehow fallen off my reader and email notifications so I’m behind reading your posts. It seems to happen on WP now and then. That, and having trouble keeping up. Please stay in touch! 😊
I noticed that for some blogs I follow, too, and it’s so frustrating because my tech savvy skills only go so far. 🙂 Thanks for letting me know, and I need to catch up on yours, as well. No worries, just visit when you can. 🙂 💗
Will do, and you also. We’ve both been here on WP a long time (six years here) and so many of our old friends have disappeared from blogging – so it’s good to stay in contact with others who’ve stuck it out. 😁💕
I agree and was just reminiscing about that recently too, since I’ve returned from another blog break. This blogging realm is a whole new world. 😊 💖
It is indeed!
Ah, Lauren, that’s so beautiful and I loved listening to you too! 🙂 xxxxxxxx
Thanks so much, Marina! I’m trying audio for something new and challenging, and it’s still strange hearing my own voice. So, I appreciate your comment. 🙂 Big hugs, my friend 💕
this is so beautiful – “success awaits those who steadfastly commit to any requisite sacrifice”
Thanks very much, Mihran! I always appreciate your lovely comments…
Delightful!! YES, happy endings aren’t only found in paperbacks. What a great line. xo
Thanks so much for your wonderful comment, Pam, and for visiting here, too! ☺❤
I’m so glad I found you!!!
I’m so glad, too! 🙂
Lauren, this is beautiful and you have such a sweet speaking voice. I enjoyed both reading your poem and listening to you read it. Hugs.
Aww, thanks so much, Michelle! I’m still not used to hearing my own voice recorded, but it’s something new and fun to try for awhile. Hugs back to you, my friend…
What a positive and beautiful expression. Thank you! 🙂
You’re welcome, Ian, and thank you for your lovely comment!
Very nice thoughts.
Thanks so much, Binky! Your kind words are appreciated!
Just beautiful, Lauren! ❤ Loved listening… xo
