~~~ Teacher's Treasure ~~~

Updated on July 10, 2013

~ A Little Ditty, For A Hurting Pretty ~


Your twisted smile,

Helps me understand;

The pain you feel

In a confusing land.

The grief of loss,

A bitter melancholy,

Of a time you walked

In an innocent folly.


Immediate regrets,

Offer no apology;

Wishing you were proficient

In escapology.

Stern-like devotion,

Just hidden love;

Remember this Angel,

As she flies back, above.


Her harsh words jarred,

But she cared like no other;

Forget - her - not,

This secret mother.

Discard the husk,

But keep the kernel;

Cherish her memory,

Forever eternal.

      Good morning, Romeo: That is some great news about your sister coming to the Lord Jesus Christ. Heaven rejoices and so do I. Hallelujah, Glory to God. Have a great weekend.

      @ Zayed

      Have I just entered the land that time forgot or is your comment of the spiced ham variety? I like it with chips but it's very unappetizing on a plate of HP.

      Get off my lawn lol! :)

      Hi there Mabel;

      Thank you for a return visit and trust that all is well with you also as it is here.

      This one was quickly scribbled quite a while ago now for a young woman who had just lost her schoolteacher in the hope of lending a little comfort and understanding during a traumatic time in the hope of assuaging the encumbering gamut of ensuing turmoil.

      Always a pleasure to have you drop by and I think that your book, ' Crescendo of Praises ' may have been instrumental in my younger sister recently becoming saved.

      Thank you so much and God bless us all.

      Yours Sincerely;

      R.Q.

      Thank you Dilara, although seeing as you're here, might I venture that time spent writing about Christ might prove more productive and fulfilling? I used to have a brother who followed Buddhism before he saw the true light and became a Christian.

      Hey there Romeo: I hope all is well with you. I missed you, but glad that you are back with more of the magnificence of your pen. This is a treasured reminder to Cherish her memory, Forever eternal. Beautiful!

      Hi Faith Reaper!

      Those fluctuating scores sure are something of an enigma, which has baffled many on HP, but I'll sure look forward to reading your new work when you choose to publish...please don't stress, and thank you so much.

      Kindest Regards,

      R.Q.

      Aw, thanks so much dearest Romeos! You are so kind to miss me, and yes, it does need tweaking : )

      I better get to writing as I was just at 97 and just dropped today to 93, and now 90! Boy, that was fast when one doesn't publish : (

      Oh well, will get one out by Saturday for sure! I better . . .

      Hugs, Faith Reaper

      Hi Faith Reaper!

      Please don't feel under any compulsion, or obligation to read straightaway, as they will still be here, waiting for you, but I know how very kind you are, and how you always make time for people with your gracious comments. I did miss you!, and I saw the other day that you had a new Hub, but obviously you must have taken it offline to tweak a little, until it meets your own, exemplary standards. : )

      Thank you so much for the blessings, which I return to you with warm affection.

      Enjoy a pleasant evening, and have a marvelous weekend.

      Yours Sincerely,

      R.Q.

      I was Flash! I was all agog, thinking, ' Maybe the baddies have caught her, and put cement in her boots - I shall have to seek her with my hammer and chisel, and free my heroine! " :)

      So pleased for you! I really hope you get it, because I can think of no one more deserving, and who has such a kind, considerate and caring nature; it should have your name written all over it, and thank you for the lovely comments.

      Sincerely,

      Bet you were surprised when I didn't make my comment. LOL! I was shadowing for a position as a CNA this evening at the care center that I currently work for. Anyway, this was wonderfully written. Voted it up!

      Thank you James - I think the woman in question needed this.I've not been keeping up with current affairs for a little while, so find it difficult to contribute accurately on what is going on in the Middle-East at the present time - so much tumult, and unrest, that I hope some kind of peace can be brokered soon to end the bloodshed.You must have a unique perspective, living in the bridge between Europe and Africa.

      Yours Sincerely,
