Do you live in color, shades of gray or black and white?
Do smiles grace your face as often as they should?
It’s a stretch to dodge the tears and let joy shine through
when times are tough and you’ve done all you could
There are no magic words to take away the sting
or miracle tunes to make you dance along the way
Just a hug and a shoulder and an ear to listen
all from my heart, I offer you this rich bouquet

It’s that time again…time to put my feet up
or I should say “recess from social media.”
All is fine, but I need a breather from the computer.
I’ve taken a few in the past and I know most of us come
to the same conclusion at some time in our “blogging careers.” 🙂
I’m not sure how long, but it could last through the holidays
where I’d return in January 2015. So if that happens,
I send wishes for a Happy Halloween,
many blessings at Thanksgiving,
a wonderful holiday season, Merry Christmas
and a Happy and Safe New Year!
But before I go, I just want to thank you all again
for your wonderful visits and feedback,
for your continued support that
encourages me to keep writing from the heart.
I will always remain humble and appreciative.
With much love and virtual hugs and Cheers!
If I could,
I’d give you the sun
wrapped in joy and love
because it’s you
who I think the world of
I’d bring a cup of warmth
for your coldest days
and my eraser of compassion
would take away your pain
If only I could
you know I would

(a small, simple gesture is all it takes, sometimes) ♥
Have a wonderful day!
If I need a place
to rest my mind
will you lend a shoulder
for just a little time?
If I need to shed
concerns and talk
can I call you up
regardless of the clock?
If I need a hug
to feel some warmth
will you offer protection
from the storm?
Thank you, my friend,
for your loving support
for your uplifting smiles
and your unselfish heart

Sadness is my anchor
for the bruises on your heart
for the pain in your soul
for answers untold
I seek soothing words
to ease your mind
but to their presence
I am blind
In hoping to comfort
a new prayer is said
for healing and peace
and all pain released
