We can't but feel utter shock,
and we're emotionally drained.
Yet deep within our sadness,
some unity is gained.
Imagine if I was given one moment,
just a single slice of my past.

Shanzy....my absolute pleasure. Thank you so much for taking the time to inform me that my poem meant something to you. That alone means more to me than you'll ever know. Kindest Regards, Sarah Blackstone
Alita... I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I apologise even more for taking so long to reply to your lovely message regarding my poem. I have had so many issues regarding copyright. My poem was sadly posted by others that claimed it as their own words... This is something that didn't bother me but meant I couldn't respond to you (and others) until the issue was resolved (sad but true). I honestly hope that you did use my words on the plaque like you wished to do. From the inner depths of heart, I'd have had no objections to you doing so. In fact, I'm absolutely overwhelmed that my words could mean so much.I'm hoping that my lack of response didn't stop you from going ahead with the plaque anyway. Either way, I'm sending you my kindest regards. With love, Sarah Blackstone
Wow..... still shocked by the responses from people far and wide.
Anyone is welcome to use my poem as they wish, I just ask that my name is left underneath so I have the privilege of being a help during a sad situation..... I am genuinely elated that my words have been a comfort to anyone.
Thank you :-) x

I'm planning on adding more of my poems soon.
I like to make people smile inside, if only for a moment.
