Thank you
For showing me
Exactly what I never want to be

We are complete opposites -
There's a such a big difference
Between you and me!

There's a lesson to be learned in everyone and everything.  Good and bad.
Grateful still. Thank you, to all my teachers.
A blessing in everything!
em>Magenta sunset skies,
Delicate fluttering butterflies,
Clouds drifting past the moon.

Crimson treetops,
Random raindrops, like teardrops,
A storm, that you can sense,
Coming soon.

Wild flowers scattered
Across fields of plush green grass.

Old wooden shutters
Banging on windows
With dust stained glass.

Wind chimes tinkling
With the wind
On an old rustic porch,

Squeeky, creaky, timber floors,
Making use of a candle,
Or a gasoline lantern,
Instead of a torch.

Swings swaying
From magestic tree branches,

Haunted castles and
Victorian mansions.

Pebbles crushing under my feet,
Leaves rustling--a sound so sweet.

Stepping stones,
In a tucked away,
Beautiful stream,

Just some of the splendors
In which I often dream.

~ And then there's you!

em>My mind revisited
The places
From whence i came.

To a time
When my wild and lively free-spirit
Was impossible to tame.

To a time
When my naive innocence
Was ripe -
When I was free -
When I was off, in flight.

To a time
When I always came to life,
Like a vampire, fearlessly gliding
Through the night.

To a time
When I was forced
To be comfortable with my predicament,
When I was no longer afraid
Of the darkness.

When I was responsible
For creating my own happiness.

I am still responsible
For creating my own happiness -
We all are!

To understand this,
We do not have to look too far!

My mind revisited
The places
From whence I came,

A reminder,
That only our circumstances change, Everything else
Stays the same.

em>Burying Hope
Alongside Expectation...

Letting go -
This time,
Without a moment's hesitation.

Spent, are decades,
Looking into thine mirrors,
Which cast no reflection,

Letting go of all love,
Which comes without resiprocation.

Letting go of unrequited love--
Thy heart's greatest devastation,

Hast loved too much...!
Now, no more undeserving,
Complimentary love
And dedication!

Letting go
Of earthly needs and desires--
Substance, consistency and security
Are always lacking in thine direction,

Genuineness is most lacking--
More than just a fraction!

Left alone with empty words -
Words not followed by action!

To thine self I shall be true,
Hence, letting go...
Into thine Heavens
Thou shalt look and seek
Thy heart's and soul's
Only salvation.

~ I'm letting go.

A feeling most of us have experienced at some point in our lives.
em>Be the kind of person who sympathises,
Help relieve stress - try to minimise it.

Lend an ear, say a kind word -
Regardless of what others say,
Or what you've heard.

Be "The Hope" on a cloudy day,
Be "The Light" - guide the way.

Be the kind of person who empathises,
Be all that "Peace" truly symbolises.

By Lady R.F. (C)2018
em>Only very few people
Truly knew her -
Others never
Took the time.

If they would have been asked
To say something about her,
They wouldn't have been able
To write more than one line!

~ A sad eulogy.

Lady R.F. (C)2018
em>I will always look up to you,
And admire you,
Just as I do
The magnificent stars
In the magical night sky.

~ Always.
