Didn't Realize
Author: Barbara Goodhew


Knew that we were friends.
But didn't know the bond we had as friends.

Years later finding out what really went on.
You were the one that was strong.

All this time thinking you didn't wonder or care.
Finding out it was me that didn't share.

Now that I know.
I won't let go.

------- Author's Notes -------

found out yesterday 7 years ago I was in a coma after my operation. my girlfriend came to see me and talk me out of the coma,With my mind being wierd I thought she didn't care but now I know what I thought were dreams were real.

Thanks Diane for hanging in there and being patient with me.

it is in and through someone elses Testimony...

that we are able to SEE with our hearts exhalted.
Sweetie, to be able to share , is not defined as a problem, it is a "Testimony" that is of value to those that have no faith. well gonna go see how the exterior of our house is lookin' , havin' it sincere thought i want to share, i LOVE the person that you are Barb !!

good read

Hey Barb! Glad things got straightened out between you and Diane. It makes you feel special and loved, when someone sticks by your side when encountered with the worst.
