Brenda has written a touching poem. Read it from the following link:
I really feel for you. You must be missing Ron. God always brings about opportunities. Keep having faith in Him and trusting Him. Rely on Him for guidance. I will be so glad to have things fallen together for you. May you sleep well and have a good night.
Thanks for sharing this one Rosina.
I'm fine. No doubt I miss life as I knew it, but as I travel forward it sometimes seems like I am only going through the motions.
Nothing will ever fit quite like it did...but that's life.
I absolutely do miss Ron on alot of days, but I also think I've felt like I've been from misfit land alot of times in my life.
I tend to be my own person with my own unique life.
One of a kind and set in my ways.
I thought so, Brenda. It's hard to get over the loss of a loved one. You are special and loved by HP community. Take some solace in that. Step by step, you will get where you want to be and what you want from life. You got the grant. What are you doing about it? I guess something awesome. Do share.
I haven't actually done anything yet with the grant.
I've written thank you letters to our Governor and a few others for supporting this program.
I'm wanting to purchase a handheld video camera to do spoken word poetry, but i can't decide on which one would work best.
I'm thinking 4 mp format at least.
Anyone have any ideas?
I'll let you know...how it goes.
So far. I'm taking bany steps
I think you are right, Rosina. This is a heartfelt poem about loss. It is very touching, Brenda. I pray for you as you have been through so much recently with the loss of Ron, and with your health problems. We may not communicate all the time, but I think of very frequently.
Thank you for posting Brenda's poem, Rosina.
I think about you alot and hope your health issues are better.
I won't lie and say this is easy...because it's not.
I talk to many people and attempt to fit in when I'm out of the house, but my heart doesn't want to be there.
Like tonight, I'm supposed to watch Ohio State game with a crowd...while I'm used to staying home to watch the game in the comfort of our home....it will be different if I go...and I won't quite fit in.
A touching poem, Brenda, and totally understandable due to what you have been through. First dealing with Ron's illness, then his passing, only to be left alone with your own health problems. I hope all things start to improve for you, you deserve it.
Thanks for sharing, Rosina.
No doubt the path hasn't been easy.
I guess even the best laid pland have detours and bumps.
But i don't think we ever thought about after his passing...or maybe I just didn't.
It's definitely different trying to do things in a new manner when your heart really doesn't want too.
Dear Bredz, I know loss hurts like hell, and it’s something that all of us experience at some point in our lives. . Only God has the power, and remember that even when no one is listening, He is still present and will always be. I understand your pain, my friend. I pray that God bless you with everything beautiful, good health, and prosperity.
Ron will never be happy to see you lost and sad. Please know that you are not alone; you always have me by your side. Although no words can really help to ease your loss, but alway remember that you are in my thoughts. I cannot take away your pain, but I can listen if you’d like to talk about it.
I know my words are inadequate, but I am truly sorry for what you’re experiencing. Please know I am always here for you. Write to me whenever you want, about whatever you want; I promise to listen. Wishing you peace and strength.
Take care, my friend. God bless you always! Much love.
Sending warm hugs!
Thank you so much for sharing, Rosina!
Thank you so much Misbah.
I really appreciate your kindness.
I'll be okay. Shed a few tears and then pick myself up and venture onward in life.
I get that God walks with me, though I argue with him once in awhile.
I can't change anything...just accept each moment.
At least my writing is one place I fit in...everyone here really helps.
Take care. Keep writing and stop worrying about me.
I'll be fine...as long as my health stays okay.
Talk with you soon.
[[[ Hugs! ]]]
I MADE it through the Ohio State game.
Although I wasn't happy with the sound system and left the one place and went somewhere else to finish watching it.
Needless to say...
I think I'll watch this game at Home next week.
Even if I am alone...I'll be able to hear and see the game.
These little hurdles will eventually get better...but I didn't fit in.
Just be yourself, Bredz. And remember, life is only granted once...
You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.
—Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass
Blessings and Peace!!
I love that! Stubbornly refuse to fit in...that's a good one.
I think I'll beat to the tune of my own drummer.
Cause it's not working the other way.
Going against the grain & being your own person....bold enough to live on your own terms...
These are powerful words my friend.
Bredz, you are more powerful than anything that may come your way. You are a lioness, my friend. Roar!
Hugs and kisses!
Yes, Brenda. It hurts a lot when we lose someone dear and no words however soothing can mitigate the loss. However, time is the greatest healer and leveler of all, With time, we all find new paths in life. Stay strong and be brave. This too will pass.
Thanks, Rosina for sharing.
Time is a great healer perhaps...or maybe we just get better at hiding how we feel.
Those new paths are the reason I feel this way.
I'm sure eventually I will stumble on the right one...but I'd rather just sit at home.
There are no words. Just time.
I'll eventually get there.
It's just that right now.. no matter what I try to do...
I don't really feel like I fit in.
Hi Brenda, a touching heartfelt poem. It is difficult to deal with loss. Healing takes time. Your writing is your solace. Keep writing, take care. Thanks Rosina for sharing.
My writing definitely helps.
So do the writers here at Hubpages.
This one does come from the heart. I've tried getting out of the house and socializing with others, but quite honestly nothing clicks.
I hope you are doing okay...I haven't seen you for awhile, but then again I haven't been on here alot yet.
That path just got a bit longer.
I wish Ron were here.
Sure Brenda.Try to take one baby step at a time.I am sure you will win.
Your few words are enough to understand your pain! I feel sorry for you and just wish that something could be done to ease your emotional suffering!
It's easier to say that stay strong and things like that, but I do understand that it's not easy at all to deal with the loss of a loved one!
I wish you peace of mind and my best wishes to you!
Thank you for sharing this Rosina!
Thank you so much Chitrangada.
It's not an easy road, but each moment brings me closer.
It's just a bit difficult to try to do things I'm not used to doing.
Guess I'm a bit stubborn.
I just have to be thankful for the things I do have...and stop focusing so much on what I no longer have in my life.
Be that as it may....one never stops carrying a loved one in his heart.
Poignant poem, Brenda. You've shared a level of loss and loneliness that is felt at the core. You've expressed, through your experiences, a level of vulnerability which is relatable to many, especially after the worse parts of the pandemic. You touch a lot of people with your poetry who may need validation and healing through your words. It also helps you to heal by sharing. Thank you, Rosina, for sharing Brenda's poem.
A very heartfelt poem Brenda. I hope and pray that everything goes well for you soon. Writing can be a great healer. Your poetry is a solace for you and inspiration for us. Keep writing, stay blessed.
Grief helps us, and again, we're never alone. The departed soul will eventually arrive on the Elysian lap of the Absolute. Grieving is for us as we 're still in the process of growing. What we miss is our true nature -- our oneness in God.
Attachments are a part of the process, but we gradually learn to transcend. The next human is as weak as we are, so how can they grant us the Light immortal? The God-man can, but even Him/Her, do not break the order. The soul is only satisfied by learning through experiences, in order to return Home. All my Love, Brenda.
It's great to see you stopping by and sending me a bit of your kind wisdom.
Tis true that as humans we are weak and the only one who can show me the way is our father in heaven...but he wants me to grow and learn along this journey of life.
Your words make sense.
I wonder though if I feel like a misfit because nothing here is like our home in heaven.
Have a successful night tonight!
I might try to tune in at half time.
I miss you.
Yòur words always mean alot
Brenda has written a great poem about loss and the feeling that we don’t belong. I hope the future is better for you, Brenda. Best wishes to you.
