If she could see herself
Through my eyes
I have a feeling
She’d be a bit surprised
Because a beautiful woman
Is what I see 
Beauty inside and out
Only a fool would disagree
If she could measure the love and appreciation
That for her my heart holds
She might be left in awe because she’d see
That to me, her friendship means the world
If she could see her heart
And the way it appears to me
Then she would be amazed
At the intense beauty that I see 
No longer would she doubt her beauty
Her strength or value as a friend
Because if she saw what I see
She’d see love and beauty that knows no end

Lady K, for your birthday,
I couldn’t get you a costly surprise
But if I could ask for one thing
It’d be that for one second, you could see YOU through my eyes…..

Best friends
Are one of a kind
Forever friends
Are a RARE find
Some people are blessed
To find their soul mate in a lover
Others find their soul mate in a forever friend
Residing within the heart of another
Between two such friends
A special bond truly exists 
This bond, cannot be denied,
No matter HOW MUCH one may resist
Between these two souls
A pure and deep love is shared
Walls are broken down and destroyed
A high level of trust and oneness with another soul is being dared
A risk is taken
A leap of faith
Unknown territory is crossed
Both wonder if their hearts are safe
This intimate level of friendship
Has been accompanied by pain in the past
Fear of the unknown…. fear of getting hurt
Fear that this forever friend may not last
Yet through the pain and heartache
Through ALL the SMiLES and tears
The bond that brought these two together 
Gains strength throughout the years
Love, trust and friendship
Fuel the fire within their souls
The bond, the connection they share
Only grows deeper as they grow old
These friends have their arguments
They have their big and little fights
One will think the other is in the wrong
While they both insist THEY’RE right…

They could be in the midst of war with each other
But in darkness, friendships true beauty lies
One can bear witness to the fact that friendship triumphs ALL
And amidst the ashes their LOVE for each other will ALWAYS rise 

On this very day… “X” years ago
My FOREVER FRIEND was born to this Earth
The bond, the LOVE…. the connection shared between us
There is NO WAY to measure it’s worth…..
I am proud and honored
To be able to call ‘Lady K’ “friend”
Grateful that I can allow myself to TRUST again
BLESSED to have a friendship that knows no end…

*Lady K…you wonder why I love you so much…?!?
The simple answer: I see the TRUE contents of your heart & soul
Others don’t see you as I do
Because they’re afraid to tear down the walls that hide the emotions you withhold
K….today I make you a promise
A promise for you on your special day
*I PROMISE TO NEVER GIVE UP ON THIS FRIENDSHIP WE HAVE*
And I promise to help you have THE BEST of BIRTHDAYS!!!  ツ

♥Me

Why does it hurt
So deep inside my heart?
Why do I feel
As though I’m falling apart?
I KNOW we’re not “together”
(Although I do wish it to be…)
This ache, this pain you cause me
Can you even see?!?
What if I told you
That I cried last night?!?
Once again you said you’d be here
And again in anticipation, my heart took flight 
I don’t understand why it is
That I care for you so
Do you even care for me?!?
The answer to this I just don’t know
You’re brother and sister
Tell me that you care
That you’re scared of these feelings
So you act like they’re not there
But Mr. C, I must ask
What is it exactly you’re afraid of?!?
Are you worried I might end up like her…. your EX…?!?
Or are you simply afraid you might actually fall in LOVE…??
Mr. C, I’m asking that you
Just give me a chance
Let me show you how a woman treats a man 
Let me love you like you deserve, show you some pure romance
Mr. C, I can’t go on like this
I can’t keep denying my heart, can’t you see?!?
I know you’re afraid of getting hurt again
But I’m NOT HER… I’m ME!
I vow to NEVER hurt you
I promise to NEVER cause you pain
If you give me a chance, Mr. C
I assure you will NEVER stand in the rain
I understand the “complications”
You have three beautiful daughters almost grown
Isn’t it obvious that I care for them too??
Or is my concern and love going unknown…?!? 
Mr. C, I’m asking that you TRUST ME
Trust that these feelings I have for you are TRUE 
I would LOVE to be yours for the rest of time
Mr. C….. I would LOVE to forever belong to YOU!!!

{PoeT’s Note: I truly wish I could tell Mr. C these things….show him these words…. but I’m deathly afraid it might ruin the FRIENDSHIP we currently have……  :-\  }

♡ Mr. C… ♡

Can you see the pain
That is in my heart?
Is it obvious to you
That I am falling apart?
When I am around you
My stomach fills with butterflies 
A smile crosses my face
You bring a sparkle to my eyes
You don’t want a girlfriend
That is what you say
I pray that soon you change your mind
When you ask to be mine… I anxiously await that day
I dream of the very moment
In which your lips meet mine
Oh that will be a moment
That I shall forever freeze in time
Everyone sees it
The chemistry between you and me
The deep and pure feelings I have for you
Why can’t you allow your heart to see?
You know I like you, I KNOW you like me
So why can’t you admit it?
I have one more question…
Mr. C… why can’t you take a chance and commit…??

My head hurts
My thoughts are running in circles
Hovering, circling
Throughout my brain
My thoughts all jumbled and confused
Unable to SEE because of the SMOKE
Thick, black smoke
I know all too well
Instead of hurricanes
We get EARTHQUAKES
Instead of tsunami’s and tornados
We receive RED FLAG WARNINGS
The thought,
The oh-so familiar fear
Sends shivers through my body
But this was no ORDINARY wildfire…
No…. This was not a wildfire at all
But the FIRE BEAST did roar today
Showed NO MERCY
As that son of a B*T©H
Swallowed my neighbors house hole
I sat there and watched
My neighbors house BEG for mercy
As it was whisked away
As swift and fast
As a house of cards
Being blown over
My nerves are shot to hell
My body can’t stop shaking
I keep replaying the images
Over and over
Maybe hoping it was fake
But I take one step outside
And find myself swimming in ashes
Suffocating by the reality of today
Trying to answer “why”… “how”….
But a part of me knows that
The house that once stood
That house that I owe many
Of my childhood smiles to
That house….. Will now and forever be
Up in smoke……

I am overflowing with grief
Sadness, fear has rented a space in my heart
But then I am also left with gratitude
Thanking God that NO ONE WAS HURT
Thankful for my friends, my  loved ones
And I find myself suddenly
TELLING those whom I love
That I DO…..
Reminding them of the fact….
Rather than ASSUMING they know
Because, once again I am learning
That LIFE CONSTANTLY CHANGES
And in ONE SECOND
Everything you know
Can be gone…….
Life as you know it
Can go up in smoke……..

*I know it’s super rough….. But I can’t seem to get my thoughts together….. Yes…… My neighbors house burned to the ground today….. No one was hurt…..but there is no longer a house where there used to be……. I’m still shaking…… So… I expect this to be a rough poem….

I would like to break from my usual poetic posts/writes for a moment…. So bear with me…..

I’d like to take a second to say THANK YOU to a group of people in whom you will RARELY hear me thank (although, I must admit, I SHOULD thank them more often….).  I would like to say THANK YOU to ALL THOSE *GOOD* PARENTS out there!!!  At any rate, I have some BEAUTIFUL & AMAZING friends in my life….. Individuals who tackle parenting as SINGLE PARENTS AND as a PARENTAL UNIT (2+ parents….step & whatnot).  I also do plenty of reading throughout the blog world and tend to come across MANY AMAZING PARENTS there. 





















I KNOW (despite the fact that I do not have kids of my own…)…. I know that more often than not it is EXTREMELY RARE for a parent to just hear THANK YOU…. a THANK YOU *JUST* because you are doing an AWESOME JOB at parenting….a THANK YOU for supporting your child(ren)…. A THANK YOU for simply BEING THERE….. Soooo….. *I* would like to thank you….. Thank you to those moms and dads out there who are doing THE BEST  YOU CAN and showing  your child(ren) all the LOVE, RESPECT, SUPPORT AND CARE that enables your child(ren) to grow up to be LOVING, POSITIVE, UNIQUE individuals in this hectic world.  I know you don’t hear it enough….and I know that there are times when you feel you are not good enough….. Times when you want to just give up and “throw in the towel”…… But please PLEASE know…..that LOVE….YOUR LOVE…is way more than ENOUGH!!!!!  Loving your child(ren) WHOLEHEARTEDLY and UNCONDITIONALLY….. Providing them with SUPPORT and ENCOURAGEMENT…..RESPECTING them as the UNIQUE INDIVIDUALS they are…… THAT is ENOUGH!!!!  =} 





















Before I sign this blog entry off…. I would like to say a special thank you to those people out there who might NOT be biological parents to some but are “stand in” or “acting” parents!!! Those foster parents, group home staff, adoptive parents,  family friends, relatives….. TO ANY AND ALL INDIVIDUALS who are helping to “pick up the slack” and pick up where the bio parents left off….. Who show the LOVE & SUPPORT of a parent although it’s not “your job”….. I’d like to say THANK YOU!!! 





















Me, personally…. I have several people in my life who I am able to THANK for being my EXAMPLE of a LOVING, SUPPORTING PARENT!  From previous blog entries, you may remember the name AMELIA… Amelia came into my life when I was 13….. She was the FIRST  REAL EXAMPLE (except my dearest friend Maggie May) of UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, RESPECT AND SUPPORT from a mother figure….. when Amelia passed away back in 2003…. I vowed that I would pass along her love wherever I go….. And I shall stick by that. Amelia, Maggie, and the handful of others that have shown me such unconditional love have enabled me to KNOW the TRUE LOVE a parent has for their child…..and I thank them for that….. Just as I thank all of you today who are reading this…. I thank you for LOVING, RESPECTING, CARING FOR, and  ENCOURAGING your child(ren)……





















Please know you have my utmost respect and sincere appreciation for the work you do.  You inspire me…. So…thanks……  😀 





















Much Love and Respect,























Poe





















(ps ~ one final thing…… Please PLEASE never go another day feeling unappreciated……and never farewell as though you aren’t good enough…)
