For Every...
Author: Terrie*


for every encouraging word
I waste no more tears
for every uplifting word
I abandon another heavy load

for every human touch
I fall in a memorable dream
for every inspiring word
I stand up and become strong

for every vibrating laugh
every sensual smile
every soft whisper
I develop a sense of comfort

for every dark cloud
every thunderclap
every storm
every rainbow formed
I feel a new life coming back

for every lost and shy moment
for every lonely night
for every shared feeling
upon those that I craved
I feel every ounce of my blood
warming my soul

for every lost word
every season thatís past
I give praise to God
for every sense of feeling & thought
a constant reminder
for every second of being very much alive

Wonderful Terrie!

This poem is very deep, very emotional. I can see you're regaining your strength when you say, "I feel a new life coming back". Very good! Keep me posted!

yea i guess ya can say that i was literally living in gothic period for awhile...i lost one of the best things that ever happened to me and well my world went from color to black n a split of a second... my testimony is ,i also had 2 precious children that helped me bounce back..for every tear that i cried there was a deep purpose and i was able to grasp at the reason 2 years following his took me that long cause i was not ready to let go...even when i let go i was not ready or prepared...
written in 8/93...well here i stand before all it's 2004 and i'm a survivor!!!! comforting other widows .....thank you for reading/commenting Terrie*
