I went on a journey knowing not
I met strangers knew nothing about
My life joined with theirs slowly
My heart melded with them gently….
One such soul stood apart
Time stood still for her to start
Trust took courage and patience
Talks and mails soon made sense…
Friendship blossomed in each book
Love is all that it took.
All the time, I thought I was the friend
It is she, her heart, solace she would send…
Knew it all, and sometimes unknown
She stood by me, when harsh words were borne
Support that she was, beauty was in her
I could stand, admire and just love her…
With everything that says I am me
With everything that still defines me
With every cell of my body
With every breath of my soul…
I wish you well, o darling friend
I wish you success in every event
I close my eyes and see you there – in
Giggling out loudly on the trampoline
You brighten my life with your fun
You are awesome, Leslie Georgeson!!
—Leslie, there are so many things I want to say. My heart feels clogged when I try. I write these words with a film of tears. I know you will have them too. We live far but always near. Know this now and forever, the vibes that you send are so dear. I read what you wrote, and all I can say, my damaged soul needs you as hope!!
From my heart to yours, this is all for you!!
What a beautiful words for your friend mam… I felt your emotions & pure soul connection by your words.
Omg Nath, how are you? Thank you so much… I hope my friend sees it… And likes it…
I’m happy mam .. seems you are happy as well after knowing such a strong bond with your friend. Your friend will definitely like it ..
Thank you so much.. God bless you, Nath
Wish you the same mam
OMG! Shalini! That is simply amazing and beautiful! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. You are so very talented and such a genuine person, and a true friend. And I’m still trying to fight back tears. You’re so sweet. Thank you so much for thinking of me. I’m a little speechless right now. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being you! 🙂
Then you know exactly how I felt when I read those lines, I have been crying and reading with tears… So you are right, speechless is the right word… You have no idea how you have been there when I had been hurt by someone in the literary world… You are God-sent. All my♥️to you
Wow, you really have amazing skills. This was very beautiful and touching😢
You think so? I couldn’t put enough feeling to my words… I kept getting choked and started crying
I definitely think so: it was an incredibly moving and very touching poem. You should be proud of it, as it’s amazing 😊
Thanks Michel. Having some bad days so now I am unable to judge at all. Mind feels overloaded. Thank you so much once again for the re-affirmation
I’m really, really sorry to hear that 😢 Just know that your posts are amazing, and that your writing skills are as strong as ever. Never doubt that for even a single second. If there is anything I can do, or you want a listening ear, you know where you can find me 😊
That’s really sweet of you… Thank you so much… I would have loved to talk, but then I find that I become too dependent on that person, then I frequently find myself alone… Sorry but experience and life has taught me this
I understand. But know that the offer is always open to you, and as you might have noticed from my comments here, I am not going anywhere. So, keep this in mind. Really mean that 😊 No pressure, just know that you can 😊😊 Please…feel better soon, and if there is anything I can do…let me know 😉
I understand honey, but you know too that my life has been a roller coaster with people leaving rather than staying… Hence I take everything with a pinch of salt…
I am thankful that you are there, but my mind asks – till when… It is not you, it is me… A cliché but true from my end.
Thank you once again for being there.
I have lived a life…I have lived a life where so many people have left me, that I have honestly lost count. And that is not even a joke. I know it’s also a cliche that people say that they are there for you, but when push comes to shove, they aren’t there. I can’t prove to you that won’t be the case with me: as one needs a crystal ball for that (sorry that is out of my range of abilities 😂), but I can say that I will be here for you, whenever you need it. And that is an offer I never make lightly, as it requires an act of trust…but I trust you, always 😘😊 So if ever you wish to talk, know that you may always contact me. You are never a burden to me, in any way whatsoever.
I understand and thank you… If things get to be too much, I will come to you.. 😘😘
Oh, but the naked emotion in this!! Beautiful words to your friend Shalini 🙂
Thank you so much, I hope she likes it too😘❤️
I bet she will 🙂
Thank you so much ❤️❤️
OK. Now that I’ve had time to compose myself, I won’t sound like a bumbling idiot. 🙂 I am printing this out and framing it and hanging it on the wall in my writing office so I can always have it to look at. I wish I could give you a big fat hug! Thank you so much. You are truly one of a kind, Shalini! Loves and hugs always, my friend. Hope you have an enjoyable rest of the week. 🙂
I will have a great week with Tony… You left me teary eyed till I couldn’t see words, so I had to write this, so I could get back to Tony. You are truly truly one of a kind 😘😘😂😂Thank you so much for the honor. I am glad I could touch your heart as you touch mine…
Awww – so sweet!
This is so beautiful! 😍❤️
Thank you so much ♥️♥️😘😘 sometimes when I am emotional, I write
I totally get that, I do that, too! It’s such an amazing way of processing chaotic/overflowing emotions! 😍😍
Hi, this was super amazing:)
I just started blogging and would love if you could check out my blog !
Thank you, that is so nice of you to say that… Keep writing
You are a really good poetess too. Congratulations, Shalini! I only ask me where you take time from to do? Michael
Michael, sometimes due to actions or words, I am hit with emotions, then I cannot do anything else till I sit down and write the words. Then my heart feels light. These words did not take much time… But the emotions say I should have said more, lots more
Great! Keep on doing so. Its fantastic! Best wishes for a sunny, funny weekend. Hope you have some time to relax, too. Michael
Have a great weekend Michael
Thank you Shalini! You too! Dont forget to relax. Michael
I will try☺️☺️
OK; thats fine. We need you profession online, and much more others offline too. Michael
Yayyyy… I am trying
