21. In My DreamsPoem About Feeling Alone While Sick
Despite my health,
You opted not to call me
Just to know if I was alright.
When I gazed at myself,
Sleeping helplessly in much pain,
I wondered where your love, care and support were.
My eyes kept starring fixedly on my cell phone,
Thinking that it would ring,
And I would hear your healing voice.
Showers of tears began to flood from my red eyes
Onto my white pillows,
Until they were all wet.
My mind crawled on something very special,
Something that ever turned my heart around,
But nothing could conquer the flame of my burning heart.
Then I thought quickly,
That it's only when days are dark,
That friends are always few.
My heart never stopped pounding the whole night;
Until God had mercy on me,
And miraculously laid me to rest
22. An Angel To Be
My whole life has been like a maze,
There may have been a dead end where
But every time I got too close to that
You'd help me from getting burned.
I think I took you for granted,
And now God has told you soon you have
I told you I would change,
You don't know who to believe.
But my life is like a trampoline,
I reach a high point and then I fall.
It goes really really well,
And then comes the brick wall.
But I will give you something to be
When you're watching from above.
All I have right now,
Is lots of care and lots of love.
I may have said, I hate you,
I didn't mean a word.
But you never believed me,
Only what you heard.
You pushed me away when I needed you most,
And that hurt me so bad.
I felt as if you didn't want me around,
It made me so sad.
Not seeing you now,
Is hard enough.
But knowing soon you'll be gone,
Mom it's really tough.
But I understand why,
God made it happen this way.
You're one of his beautiful angels,
He wants back one day.
He sent you here,
To light up this earth.
And to show your whole family,
What life is worth.
You showed me that life,
Could be a wonderful thing.
You told me what I should do,
And what it would bring.
I'll miss you while you're gone,
You'll never leave my heart.
And from now until then,
I promise, you're missed when we're
LOVE YOU MOMLatest Shared Story
The poem about the dying mother, would apply to my grandmother, who was the only mother I ever really knew. I called her momma, when one day she asked me why I didn't call her grandma. I was...
Grandpa I love you and I always will.
It makes me so sad to see you so sick,
I wonder why you were god's pick?
maybe because you were such a good man
Or maybe because he has his own little plan.
whatever it is it's hard to see you this way,
Do you remember when we used to play?
Or when we used to sit and talk all day?
I don't know what I'll do without you, or if I will ever get by.
Everybody tells me its going to happen sooner
or later I don't want to have to say good-bye.
I know that you will be a lot happier and a lot less confused,
But when it comes time for me to say my last good-bye, I will think to myself and remember that god has a plan and everything will work out in the end.
I just want you to know that I will love you forever and always.Latest Shared Story

24. My FatherDad's Illness
My father is ill
And fading away
Still here for a while
And a few more days
I'm grateful he's here
Not a moment to spare
I love him so much
For him I care
I'm wishing he stays to see me wed
And see my first baby in its tiny bed
Him being gone I could not handle
Every night I would light him a beautiful candle
If he was to go
I'm happy to know
To fly away he would spread his wings
And listen as his guardian angel sings
I'll be happy to know he's in a better place
Even though I'll never forget his lovely face
A great father he is
No daddy is better
No one will ever be
No matter whoever
He is also very handsome
With his baby blue eyes
And his jet-black hair
It makes me cry
He has so many tubes and liquids to gain
I wish he would just go
And feel no more pain
In a way, I want him to stay
And hear him say,
' My sweet little daughter it will be okay'
If God wants him free
I'll need one last touch
He'll be in a better place
And I will miss him very muchLatest Shared Story

25. My Pain
You try to understand
But I don't want you to
I don't think you can comprehend
The pain that I go through.
I never get to sleep
Because I cry all night
The doctors don't know what it is
Or what's wrong with my sight.
The pain's almost unbearable
Like a thousand stabbing knives
And when my skin gets wet
My body's covered in hives.
I wish that I could show you
How it hurts to breathe or move
But I know that it's not possible
So this I cannot prove.
The touch of skin or fabric
I want to scream out loud
But I know I won't do so
Cause the sound drowns in the crowd.
What's that you say
I can't hear you
Speak up please
It's my hearing too.
My muscles freeze
My joints lock
I am scared
I cannot walk.
I lay in bed
Do nothing all day
My mom brings my food up
On a tray.
I chew my food
My mouth needs to soak
I sip my water
I start to choke.
I'm scared to think
What happens next
Cause the situation
Is too complex.Latest Shared Story

26. Precious Boy
His little eyes so sad,
His mouth turned in a frown.
Why does this little boy feel so bad?
What is causing him to be down?
His smile used to be so grand,
But now he hangs onto life by a strand.
He doesn't deserve this pain,
We all have the right to complain.
His mother stays by his side,
As the doctors remain to reside.
Please she cries, let him find a way out.
Erase our faces of this doubt.
This little boy is so precious,
His happiness is infectious.
His life will be so great,
He will overcome his fearful fate.
27. Can He See Me?Waiting For Death Husband In A Vegetative State
Can he see me?
Can he hear me?
Does he know I'm there?
When I am standing at his bedside or sitting in a chair.
My friends tell me to move on with my life,
but it is so hard
when I am still his wife.Latest Shared Story
I have a friend that's keeping their illness/sickness a secret. Not telling family or friends. Just struggling to deal with it alone. So I'm trying to encourage her and help in any way I can.
I look in your eyes and all I can do is sit down and cry,
the pain in your face hurts me in so many ways.
I wish I could just ask GOD to wash your pain all away.
Your pain is my pain and I feel it everyday,
I just wish our pain would go away.
Matthew I Love you with all my heart
and if it was up to me I'd make you walk.Latest Shared Story

29. Questions?Trying Not To Ask God Why
I cry myself to sleep at night
Trying not to ask God why
I have false hope is what I've heard
Rather than that don't say a word
My faith is in God
That is where I stand
We gave her to him
She's now in his hands
How do I cope with what I am going through?
Let me ask you this, what else can I do?
I can only play the hand life deals
I just can't imagine how Angel feels
Should I give up and let her go?
As long as there's hope I say NO
Some people say It's all meant to be
An innocent child, I don't agree
You can tell sometimes she really feels bad
But through out it all she's hardly ever sad
She has a great smile that lights up your day
For a moment or two my fears fade away
Do I wonder what life holds in store?
No..I just pray for another day more!Latest Shared Story

Poem About Life With Epilepsy
My eyes glistening with tears,
But not yet fallen.
I'm crying, but they're silent tears.
I'm crying on the inside so you are unable to see
All the pain running though me.
I never sleep,
For fear of what tomorrow might bring.
How can I be so lost
In a place I know so well?
How can I be so broken
In a family so together?
How can I be so confused
Surrounded by so many?
Always forced to fight.
A fight I never seem to win.
God only knows such a fact.
I've fought for so long.
When will this ever end?
Sometimes I walk past everyone as if I were invisible.
Everything's moving with no place to go.
I tell myself that everything's going to be ok,
But it's seizures.
The time it took to change me.
The life I had, I can't have back.
Yet I can't see why all these tears feel so unreal.
I'm not the same, my words are still unsaid.
So instead, I write them on paper.
What I hide is buried deep within me.
So many tears I have shed in the dark,
Hidden away in the privacy of my own thoughts,
Only to be shelved with morning's first light
Because of no courage to speak of my pain.
And it hurts to know that I'll never be the same,
Knowing I'll never be the girl I used to be.
If you only knew what I've been through,
Or maybe you could take a walk in my shoes,
Because this is sometimes how I feel.

31. Fading AwayDealing With Rare Disease Of Morphea
I'm fading away and no one seems to care
They see the beauty inside and out
No one really understand my pain and suffering
Please love and show me because I'm fading away
While I'm here, hug me like you'll never see me again.
I need you to keep me strong, for I am tiring out fast.
I love my family, please love me, too!
My depression worsens each day because of this rare illness.
My thoughts aren't always mine, because I am fading away!
No one understands my illness and neither do I
It's a very rare thing that needs me somehow!
I don't want to fade away, so promise me, you'll understand and comfort me...
then I will fade away in peace!
32. In My Heart
You know I Love You, you know I do.
I just wish you could talk to me like I talk to you.
I know how hard you try to speak,
but those brain cells you lost made your body so weak.
I know you hear me and I hear you too,
Above the stars and even the Moon.
I hear you in my heart and even in my soul
and I'll always make sure you have your radio.
You loved to sing, you loved to dance
and hopefully you'll have that 2nd Chance.
I know your strong but still too weak,
My Dear Mother Please Don't Weep.
I hear you when I'm down more than any time,
your saying "Linda, pick yourself up and hold your head up tall."
I try so hard to live my life,
but without you in my life it's hard I'd have to say.
Mom I remember so much of you that it hurts to even say,
but at least I have those few memories that I know will always stay.Latest Shared Story
This poem touched me as my Mum has been in a vegetative state for the last 3 years.

Courage While Diagnosed With Cancer
It started out a nice day,
Warm, sunny, and bright.
But then something happened
That turned the day into night.
The tests are done and over,
And all the results are in.
Now I only have to wait
To see if I lose or win.
I'm sure it won't be long now
Before the answers are heard.
It's just a matter of time
Before I'm given the word.
He's coming into my room,
In his smock so snowy white.
Will this bright sunny day
Become a dark, dreary night?
I could see it in his face.
He had no reason to speak.
I just prayed that when he did
I'd be strong instead of weak.
"You have got cancer," he said,
"And it's not good, it's stage four."
"I'll leave you alone for now,"
Then turned and went out the door.
An awful thing, this cancer.
It takes your strength and might
And as much as you want to,
You've got no power to fight.
Yes, my day did turn to night.
My greatest fear just came true.
How much time do I have left
Before my whole life is through?
Will I have time to do things
Before I reach my last day?
Or will the good Lord above
Want to take me right away?
What about my family?
How will they get on with life?
Will my children be okay?
What will happen to my wife?
I'll fight to the very end,
Hang on as long as I can.
I won't give up that easy.
To the end I'll be a man.
It's going to be real hard,
But I will fight all the way
To turn that dark, dreary night
Back to a bright, sunny day.
Sister About Her Sick Little Brother
He grows everyday
And thinks 'never die'
Life he will live his way
Hush-a-by baby, don't cry
Even though he's discriminated
He never asks why
He doesn't show he's intimidated
Hush-a-by baby, don't cry
The doctor's say he has limited time
And as the years pass him by
He becomes a relentless dime
Hush-a-by baby, don't cry
And as the sickness spreads
He doesn't whine or sigh
He isn't full of dread
Hush-a-by baby, don't cry
So the family, they prepare
But they put on a mask and lie
For maybe, maybe it will disappear
Hush-a-by baby, don't cry
And he says, now's my cue
Don't cry, for I'll be in the sky
Always watching over you
Hush-a-by baby, don't cryLatest Shared Story

35. GrandmaDon't Give Up Poem
O Grandma O Grandma don't ever give up hope,
All you family and friends are learning to cope,
Please stay strong and never stop praying,
You will get better soon that's what everyone is saying.
You are Grandpa's life please stay with him,
If you were to leave us the world would be so grim,
You are on our minds every minute of every day,
You would never get sick if I had it my way.
Loving and generous is what you are,
Everyone that loves you isn't too far,
I can't tell you how much I care about you,
I know you'll get better I know this is true.
There is one thing that you have to promise me you'll do,
Please beat this thing and keep your faith too,
Don't ever give up hope and don't ever say goodbye,
because God is with you and so am I.Latest Shared Story

36. DementiaPoem About The Pain Of Dementia
Where did you come from,
you evil one?
I cannot remember
that tomorrow has come.
Why is my life such a haze?
I stare at the walls and long for happier days.
Friends and family gather 'round
to ensure that my feet are firm on the ground.
My room is so small, and there's nothing outside,
just empty streets and nowhere to hide.
Dementia, you have caught me and pinned me down,
and I cannot remember why I frown.
My wife will be here soon and we'll go for a walk,
why are there tears in my eyes?
My body is tired and I must rest my head.
I will lay down on my bed.
My dreams will come to me crystal clear,
happy and joyous, with nothing to fear.
Dementia, tomorrow you will wake me like an alarm,
causing such grief and mental harm.
Oh, go away you evil one.
Let me live and remember the sun.Latest Shared Story
