My Life, A New Awakening.

Updated on April 6, 2011

Spring Lamb

Happy Day's
Happy Day's

Visions

Fifty four years I have lived in this lifetime,

but today the bubble has burst.

I see sunshine and raindrops, hear bird song and children laughing,

the wind in my hair, and the softness of grass underneath my feet.

My sight is clear, not covered in mist,

and my children are happy, not shrouded in shadows.

The past will remain in the past, and no more shall I weep,

or live my life in depression, or fear of recrimination.

Today realisation has dawned, and a bright light shines above me,

I have reached up my hands to feel the vision, although I am no angel,

and I want to be part of this life again.

I want to caress every minuet of every day,

and feel the love surge through my veins.

I want to walk on air, dance with the trees and turn my face upwards

to catch the snow drops before they hit the floor.

I want to hug my friends, love my man and share all that I am.

Wrinkles, what wrinkles, I do not worry now,

a weight has been lifted away from me, and somehow I smell fresh air,

not hidden with the depths of grief and stink of depression.

I drive an old bangor, but at least it goes,

I don't have a huge bank account, but at least I am not broke,

I don't have many friends, but I have good neighbours.

But most of all, I don't have the best of health, but I am alive.

I am alive and willing to seek changes, challenges, bring them on.

A Taste of Spring
A Taste of Spring

Thank You

This little piece of prose is written for all the fellow hubber's who have supported me in so many ways. Novelty Reviews was so correct in his concepts of my writing, that he has opened my eyes to reality, and his courage to critique my work truthfully, has given me the encouragement to move on. THANK YOU.

      dallaswriter, I am so glad you took some time for yourself. As much as we love writing, it can and does get you down when the old grey matter stops at times. Hope you are feeling better today, try cammomile tea before going to bed that helps me sleep better. Much love x

      Good advice... stepped away from publishing research today and just took in the day. Great day with my family and a wonderful day for laying in the hammock and just breathing. Didn't even write today other than to check in on my precious friends here at HP. Love to you...

      Hi dallaswriter, thank you for your lovely comment, I am so pleased my little poem brightened your day. I get burnouts too, they pass. Take a break, go for a walk and take time out. x

      I loved this and I soooo needed it! brain burnout this weekend (especially if you read my latest hub). Think I will stick to silly poetry and blogs about things that annoy me. Great job with this as always:) hugs to you!

      tumblintumblweed thank you so much for you kind comment. Novelty reviews did me such a good turn reviewing my hubs on hub pages. The truth was a little hard to take initially, but it has certainly given me some food for thought. x

      Ahhh darling Bill, thank you so much for your lovely comment. I wish I could plant a great big smacker on that lovely face of yours. You are very welcome to come and stay, in fact I insist if you are calling our way. I have the perfect pub in mind for a lazy, musical Sunday afternoon. x

      Love you sweetie, and I hope you are as happy and joyous as that prancing little lamb!

      Maybe we'll stop by one day and you can take us to one of your famous, neighborhood pubs. I'd love that!
