Pushing through the pain, so weary
Pushing, feeling like you’re going nowhere
Pain’s tears are rolling, the only thing moving
Push through dear child
In God’s strength, you can

When someone you love isn’t with you
And vast oceans keep hearts apart
When wheels of pain gather momentum
You might feel hopeless; but look up

When a dream is not being fulfilled
And that hope, it has flown away
You’re not well enough to see it through
But it’s a new day, just look up

Pain can shatter vulnerable hearts
If not held together with love
Don’t let pain leave lasting legacies
Push through that sorrow, and look up

Pushing through the pain, so weary
Pushing, feeling like you’re going nowhere
Pain’s tears are rolling, the only thing moving
Push through dear child
In God’s strength, you can

We all, in unexpected moments
Are trapped in emotional pain
Sometimes physical, spiritual too
Some totally immersed, look up

Pain hurts, buries deep beyond the core
It hides, and thinks no one’s watching
Then the notes of melancholy play
Isolating bonds, oh! look up

Frozen tears silence intensity
You cry till you can cry no more
But dear one, our Healer is so close
Find the strength to cry one more tear

Oh! Find the strength to cry one more tear

Pushing through the pain, so weary
Pushing, feeling like you’re going nowhere
Pain’s tears are rolling, the only thing moving
Push through dear child
In God’s strength, you can

Glowing butterflies with sparkle stars

Sometimes in life
There comes across your path
A sparkling jewel from heaven
Words of wisdom
Comforting arms
Even when silence is golden
Knowing they are there
And when they say your name
You remember a voice
Distinctly their own
Showered with heaven’s love

The Lord has placed upon my heart (and through the suggestion of a dear friend, and another a few years ago) to record my songs and poetry via youtube. It carries the same name … Poetry Cottage.

Please be blessed …

Lost Love

It’s been just over a year since dear sweet Louie Bear was taken away from our hearts. We have been blessed with a totally different fursonality (and challenging purrfriend for Meeko) …  little darling Moose, and oh! what a character he is. No hugs for you, thank you very much; but adorable and loving in his own special way.

I am reposting this … to say … if you have ever wanted to tell someone you like them, you love them, you want to hug them, forgive them, or ask them for forgiveness … do it. Life is so precious, and we do not know the number of our days.

When you look into another’s eyes
Never presume it’ll be forever
Love locks two hearts together as one
To have loved is better than never

Life can bring joy, life can bring sorrow
The rains of summer turn into tears
A winter’s snow hides deep emotion
Spring and fall leave as another nears

Take a walk down your memory lane
Step into prints of those gone before
Love, it finally has its moment
My love, be prepared for what’s in store

When days turn into weeks and more years
Everything, nothing, ever changes
Love intense, ’cause one breath will be last
You’ll awake, they’re gone, nil exchanges

I’ll Never Stop Loving You

Mother 3

Nine years today dear Mother
It’s nine years since you’ve been gone
So very much has happened
Many great-grandchildren born

I loved you then, love you now
How can life be without you
And yet, nine years on, it seems
That each day begins anew

I miss your beautiful smile
Embraces like no other
And I miss you just because
You’ll always be my mother

For A Loved One Departed (Written For My Dear Mother)

The reflection of heaven’s rose garden

sky 1

Upon the branches of my heart
For you, this poem is written
The love you gave, the love you shared
The tenderness that softened

And on the paths that lead me there
Your footsteps are remembered
Guiding and advising me
You’ll never be forgotten

And on the leaves that bound my heart
My family life is written
Joy and pain, happiness and gain
The aroma will ever remind me

And on the petals of flowers found
Found wrapped around my heart
Sweet words of gentle encouragement
That trusted who I was

The aroma of those flowers linked
To leaves and branches and paths
Take me back to when you first left
Though not as often now
But the tears of dew that water my heart
Will always remember you

Suddenly tears, they fall
Out of nowhere, gentle and small
Don’t know why, if at all
Then I remember mother’s call

It’s been seven long years
So full of ups and downs and fears
But my Father, He hears
And through it all, my Saviour steers

Time, it separates us
Even though your heart remains in mine
And time, they say heals wounds
May heal them; but the scar remains
The wound that was left
At your departing
Has now been lovingly closed
And bound with inner strength and joy
’Cause even though in quiet moments
The silent tears they fall
You’re my mother and no-one, no-one
Could or ever will replace you
You’re mine and I’ll forever love you
Because love never forgets your call

In the secret chambers
Of love’s sweet memories
He pours
His love into my heart
Enabling me
Encouraging me
To sing beautiful songs
Like the songbirds
Of the morning
Through rain
Through sunshine
He draws me back to you
And this I know for He tells me so
Dear mother, our love will never part
For He’s loved us both from the very start
And will always through His merciful heart
Fill my miss you heart with your loved me heart
