Ann, It's a pleasure to meet you and I'm glad you enjoyed my poem. I too viewed your bio and works. Your poem "A Touch Of Heaven" and "I Love To Breath In" are so very relatable, not to mention beautifully written. I look forward to reading more of your poetry and now that winter is coming I'll have plenty of time. Best regards, Sylvia
This is my poem. I'm so glad it has inspired so many people.
My dad passed last year, I was able to meet him prior to his passing. Sometimes you just have to forgive people as they do not understand what they have done wrong.
I pray for all of you. Not everyone understands what it's like feeling alone or how you abandon your children. Life gives you strength and this makes us stronger. I love you all and know again you are never alone.
I love your reaction. I'm soo glad this has given you courage. Sometimes people are selfish and don't think of how they impact others. Bless you
This is my poem. He died last year. Only god can judge him. I'm soo glad this has touched soo many people. I love you all and thank you for the support.
My heart cries for you and I share your pain. My situation is different but the loss and the grief are very much the same. I myself couldn't move on with my life and at times it felt like I couldn't breathe....I hate this feeling and I can't seem to find my way in this world now that my daughter is gone. There are so many people who think they have the answers and tell me to just get on with life, then there are those that understand and know the pain we feel. I wish you well and pray God gives you a little peace and comfort in your heart.
I'm so sorry for your pain as I too know what you're feeling I lost my baby girl 6/20/20, she was 27 years young. I'm led to believe she passed due to trying to go cold turkey from alcohol. I'm so confused and don't understand how her roommate who heard her moaning in pain for 3 days never called an ambulance? I know it's not his fault but one can't help but think maybe, or what if ya know? When he finally did call for help it was far too late. My baby had a series of 5 heart attacks inroute to the ER...the 1st one left her brain dead I'm told and the rest left her with broken ribs. I was in no condition to fly out to where she was but her sister, my oldest did and she knew her sister was there...my daughter told me she knew. I was given the EKG strip with her last heartbeat on it and in a way it makes it worse and yet I can't part with it. In fact her birthday was Friday 9/15/92 and I miss her so much at times I can't function. I've been told it's been since 6/20/20 time to move on!
One day I plan to go on this thread and respond to all the stories shared with me. But today, I'm reaching out to tell you all that hearing the heartfelt and heartbreaking stories calls so much attention to the brokenness of the world. We aren't alone in our battles. And recovery is possible even when the days and nights, months and years trickle on drowning in pain. It took so much for my husband to find sobriety. He found Jesus in a jail cell and has made it to 5 years without the chains of meth dragging him down. He isn't perfect, but he is free from that demon and I thank God for that. I hope somehow, some way, that each of your loved ones find freedom from meth. Loving an addict was by far the worst experience I've ever survived. Much love and hope to you all.
I'm truly sorry for your loss. Meth is a stealer of life, even when it allows you to live. I'm sorry he didn't find freedom and Hope before it was too late.
Sylvia, this is a beautifully written poem and brings back many happy memories of my childhood. I also liked reading your bio and looking at your lovely photo. Best wishes, Ann D Stevenson
