I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
This is a poem I wrote for my aunt’s funeral.
The Flowing River Of Life
A raindrop lands on the ground followed by a few more
They collect the sadness and the grief that have pooled up.
As the tears stream down our faces emotions cannot be dammed up from the loss
We are seeing a rough and turbulent time of currents and eddies
As our pain meanders from bad to awful that is the way it has to be
For we know that in time calmer waters and waves of laughter can eventually heal the heart
I cannot even fathom what you are going through
For I only know the depths of my own pain and sorrow
I have no words to offer that could make you feel better and bring a drought
Looking at her reflection in the water will bring smiles to your face.
I wish you God’s peace and hope for kindness in your journey
We will soon see land and will no longer be a drift
I offer you a paddle of hope that you may be able to navigate the rapids
For her memory lives on in the flowing river of life.
