Where Is The Hope?


Where is the hope?
Is there nothing more to say
I reached out to touch you
But you have drawn away
I spoke with sincerity
Trying to explain
The hurt that I shared
Trying to ease your pain
My words were sincere
What more can I say
Where is your heart
The one I thought cared
And what of our friendship
I thought we once shared
Lost and forgotten
Have you taken it away
Where are you now
And your words of yesterday
Where is their warmth
Left to fade away
Your kind words of the past
My comfort for each day
Now a tapestry of memories
Unraveling and frayed
Memories of a friendship
I thought would always stay
Where is your warmth
That touched me each day
Where is my hope now?
Since you have turned away.

"In the heart of every winter a palpitating spring lives,
and behind every night, a smiling dawn comes."
Khalil Gibran

This - my friend - is the way to taking.
A big kiss and that the week is full of good recollections, with big smiles, but also of projects for your new spring, because always there are more doors to open, do not forget it!

besos

dianne said...

Thank you dearest friend Elia for the quote from Khalil Gibran they are beautiful words and so too are your wishes.
I need to smile more, find new projects and occupations for my time and stop looking to the past. Sadly, I feel there is no-one there for me now, I have been forgotten.
Have a lovely week!
besos

dianne said...

Thank you dear Giga for your kind and thoughtful words, sadly, I don't have much hope left.
Warm greetings my friend.

~Ellie Kings~ said...

Di, take it from me, heartfelt and sad is also beautiful. Especially words that come from the depths of your soul. You and I are two peas in a pod :) I understand your pain more than you know, even if it is on a different level. From sadness and hurt come forth the most eloquent poetry. Lots of Love dearest friend!

dianne said...

Thank you sweet friend Elliefor your thoughtfulness, yes, though my words are those of sadness there is a strange beauty in the love that they convey. I know you understand my pain though our circumstances are very different,there was such a cruel finality to your hopes, a pain far greater than mine.
I dared to hope but I realise that some things will never change and there will be no happy ending, well not for me. I am just a romantic dreamer and a fool, he just does not care.
Lots of love to you dearest friend!

Hi Dianne, Good to be here and read another of your beautiful creations.
Thank you for stopping by my photo blog..though it is highly ignored by me. I am back at my usual space and will try to be regular. Here and at my place as well.

Have a nice day..

Hope is a good thing to have. May be even the best of things.

I hope everything falls into place very soon for you..

dianne said...

Gracias, querido Juan Necesito algunos abrazos.
Uno para ti mi amigo.

dianne said...

It is so good to see you here dear Kunal and thank you for your kind words and quote from "The Shawshank Redemption".
Everything will fall into place, I just have to concentrate on the reality and forget the comfort of the past. I cannot hope for that which is not given.
I look forward to reading your words once again.
Warm wishes for a nice day.

xoxoxo ♡

Babygirl you aren't the fool-he is. If he doesn't see all the beauty that you carry on the inside and outside, then it's his loss. I proclaim happiness over your life. Romantics & dreamers are always loved by someone who knows their worth. Know your worth. You are priceless!

Evanir said...


Mesmo , que esteja vendo a vida preto branco.
Olhe para o céu veja o inifito azul onde quem
tem fé no criador encontrara coragem e força para passar
pelas tribulações.
E a noite se emocione com a beleza da lua e do céu estrelado.
Em cada estrela vera um anjo zelando e olhando por você ..
enquanto a lua ilumina sua linda alma
veras como pode ser feliz na graça e na presença de Deus.
E muito carinho eu trouxe para você , que tanto amo.
Beijos na alma afagos no coração.
Evanir.
PS: fico triste em não poder informar
como anda minha vida;porém saiba vc é muito importante para mim.
Deus abençoe seu final de semana
paz e luz.

dianne said...

Dearest Ellie , thank you for your thoughtfulness and your kindness.
To be fair to him he has never promised me anything, there has been a close connection over many years and many kindnesses exchanged but no relationship. He has never said anything untoward,just sharing his thoughts. I am the fool and the dreamer because I dared to hope that one day there might be more but knowing deep in my heart it would take a miracle for him to care enough. I have been a loving friend for many years,I have been there for him when he needed me. He comes and goes from my life, only through correspondence and very sweet acts of kindness, we have never met, he leaves and returns again. I don't know that he will return this time, I doubt it. I do know my worth, I am a loving, caring person but he cannot see it. If he cannot appreciate me for who I am and what I have given him then he is the one who has lost something precious. Perhaps one day I shall meet someone who does care enough.
Thank you for caring and for your encouragement. I know that our situations are very different but you can love someone for whom they are, the kindness that they have shown and the words that they share with you. I know that your pain was far deeper than mine, so much deeper but my heart is still broken.
Lots of love to you dearest friend.

dianne said...

Obrigado querida amiga Evanir pela gentileza de suas palavras eo amor que você me enviar. Sim minha vida não parece ser preto e branco, quando escrevo estas contas tristes de meus sentimentos em poemas e prosa, mas eu ainda posso ver a beleza do mundo ao meu redor. Eu amo o azul do céu, nem sempre cheio de nuvens, a lua é uma fonte de beleza e inspiração eo calor do sol ainda me toca. Eu amo flores e suas cores, a beleza das árvores. eles me dão força ... e, claro, meus amigos como vocês que vêm aqui para me confortar. Por favor, não se preocupe por mim, tudo ficará bem. Vou em breve ser capaz de ver a luz sem sombras.
Por favor, seja bem querido amigo.
Deus abençoe você pela bondade de seu coração.
