The Real and Vividly Imagined - A Message for My Friend

I have removed the original content of this post, it was not one of my better ideas. I should not have to reach out to you my friend and explain myself to you. You should know me by now and realise that I would not do anything to interfere in your potential happiness. You have disappeared, I have been trying to contact you, there has been a misunderstanding and I am not responsible for any of your unhappiness. You know I was brought into this situation unwillingly and without any thought for my own feelings I tried to help you and your new friend. I am sorry it has not worked out as you had wished. I had no influence on her decision.
This unfortunate situation has been going on for weeks and in trying to help you both I am now sad, confused, ill and I don't know what to believe any more.
Take care, Dianne

Do You Remember?

I think of the memories
of words we have shared
The beauty of those words
the kindness exchanged
I have not forgot all the gifts 
that we gave, gifts from our hearts
Precious memories to save
A small folded letter placed in our tree
secured amongst the branches
Your kind words to me
A beautiful friendship
I thought we both shared
I opened my heart
to show you I cared
When you were lost
I helped you find your way
Out of the shadows
into the light of day
Of course it was given
with love and with care
For that's what friends do
they give and they share
But what am I to think now
you seem to have gone
For I don't feel you near me
Is all that we had, now come undone?
Have you forgotten all that has passed
have you forgotten me?
Your friend 'til the last
I will remember you, I won't forget
The only regret I hold in my heart
is that you have forgotten me
And now we are apart...

I Surrender

How is it you are gone from me
Alone with my need for you again
You did not say goodbye
You slipped away in the darkness of night
Leaving me here with my sadness
My broken and wasted heart
Alone with my feelings of solitude
And all hope gone from my world
I awoke this morning to emptiness
A space that your presence had filled
I thought that this time you would stay
That you would not be leaving so soon
My love for you was not demanding
It was given with kindness and care
I never asked for it to be returned
I just wanted you to be there
Your presence was a light on my horizon
A glimpse of how love could feel
Only you could bring such happiness
Now with you goes my whole world
I stumble, I fall, I am broken
Until the day you return
I surrender my hopes to the darkness
And return to my empty dreams ...

Just Before Sunrise

As the early morning mist
Rises from the valley floor
It brings with it the fresh fragrance
Of the forest trees and flowers
The air is cool and moist
Its sweet fragrance scents the air
And surrounds me with a feeling
Of happiness that I am here
A feeling of renewal as the sun rises
With its first gentle rays
Of soft golden colours
Which paint and light the sky
With many pastel hues
Soon the sky will be alive
With the full brilliance of the day
But until then I shall enjoy this
Time of cool and peace
Alone with my thoughts
Feeling the beauty and promise of nature
Listening to the songs of birds...

For you there'll be no crying
For you the sun will be shining
'Cause I feel that when I'm with you
It's all right I know it's right

And the songbirds keep singing
Like they know the score
And I love you I love you I love you
Like never before

To you I would give the world
To you I'd never be cold
'Cause I feel that when I'm with you
It's all right I know it's right

And the songbirds keep singing
Like they know the score
And I love you I love you I love you
Like never before Like never before

Like never before ...

On The Other Side of Heartbreak

After the many tears
The sleepless nights
The loneliness of my journey
Through the darkness
I feel no disquiet
I find that time and acceptance
Has lessened the hurt and pain
I can now wake to mornings
With some hope in my heart
For with morning comes
The sunshine's golden tints
Into the light once more
And the flowers before me
Awaken my heart to the joy
And the happiness I thought
That I had lost forever
And with hope
My heart shall love again...
