A Poem by Marilyn: being thankful for what i have.. hope, love and a dream

A Poem by Dara
"

Marilyn Nepp Sturner, a fellow poet here on WC passéd away earlier today. May she forever be in peace and free from pain.

"
emotional pain has subsided
no heart aches no sighs no tears for loss
no jealousies
or sense of betrayal
calmness noW and
contentment with my lovely present
happiness is such

physical pain__ still throbbing, stinging
and at times a knife like jab
but my hope is that it too will fade and diminish
as did my past heartaches


and will be replaced with normalcy
mobility
and the freedom to FLY HIGH

Very interesting poem about pain. Pain makes us stronger if we can take it.

You are welcome
tho i did not know her, it is a shared sadness when anyone passes from this life to the next ... she certainly left an impression on you, Dara ... who can ask for more in our own passing ... emmajoy reviewed and i saw it was one you had posted so thought you were posting anew .. i see this is several years past ... Marilyn seems, like most of us, to have found an outlet for her pain ... her endurance without anger and blaming is evident in her words .. i hope i can face my own death and the dying with courage, Faith and a steadfast heart ... be well dear friend ... hope to see more of you ... right here at the Cafe'

Thank you for posting this, Dara.

I loved her poetry and she was such a gracious, giving poet.

This is really sad news...WC has lost an important rib to its body.

I recall Marilyn well. A lot of her poetry did seem to reflect pain of some sort. Hopefully she has finally found peace. RIP.
