ONE YEAR LATER

Updated on February 5, 2015

l´m still here, then.. One Year Later.!

Happy anniversary to me!

Happy anniversary to me !

Happy Anniv......Whoa! Hang on! HAPPY anniversary???

Oh! yes. You´re right. silly me.!!......

One Year Anniversary to me,

One year since l crossed the sea.,


One year since l left home,

One year l´ve been feeling alone.


One year anniversary to me.,

l should be singing with glee,

Only one death in the family,

Should be glad not the usual three.


One year anniversary to me,

l´ve survived what seemed couldn't be.

l´m alive and still walking,

One year anniversary to me,


l miss so much seeing my son,

SO! Think of another mum,

My son´s not in a war zone,

You´re right, l can visit his home.


One year anniversary to me,

l´m going to go across the sea,

spend some time in the sun,

with my friends and my son.


Be grateful for all the positives,

Stop dwelling on the negatives,

(yes , l know there have been many),

but not as bad as they could have been...

HAPPY Anniversary to me!!.

    Happy belated anniversary Dim, I have been away from the Hubs for a spell, hiding in my cave. I have resurfaced refreshed and ready to write once more. I can't imagine how you feel about your move from England, it must be so hard being away from you son and friends and other loved ones.

    I know I would feel the same way, but alas, be happy that you have them, can email and webcam and telephone them. Technology certainly makes it so much easier to stay connected with the people in our lives.

    Peace my dear Dim and thank you for your support and kind comments at my Hubs. I did comment back on your comments you left in my Divorce hubs. I know your son struggled in the same way and I first hand know the feeling of hurt, pain and loss of children and the cruelty and ex can bestow upon us. Hugs

    Happy Anniversary from me also Dim.

    There is always so much to be thankful for isn't there ?? Maybe sometimes they may be a little harder to find but they are there nonetheless.

    'Be grateful for all the positives

    Stop dwelling on the negatives.'

    Great words and my sentiments 100%.

    Needless to say I am pushing all the buttons here.

    Take care my friend.
