A Poem by Aspiring Angel



When the shadows fall to evening
And the silence screams my name
In the pretense of the believing
That I can still dance in the rain
Circles never to find closing
When the heart remains the same
Left still to you your choosing
Of how we must play the game
And the clock is swiftly taking
The life that is lived within today
My tears will soon find their falling
As they have in yesterdays
I am soon to find you gone
With the memories living on

Locked in vessels of forgiving
I have placed heartache upon a shelf
Pretending all is right between us
For preservation of the self
Movies continuously playing
Just beyond the windows of my mind
Pause cannot find its meaning
When the remote you cannot find
The day moves to the tomorrow
With the yesterdays still in place
Do not look upon the heartache
Better safely hid away
The circles still belong
And I will soon find you gone

Your mind granted the forgetting
Of the pictures really never seen
Brought to me is still the nightmare
Of what became of you and me
The circles ever widening
When the evening shadows call
Not easy is the hiding
Of the biggest hurt of all
Discarded was our meaning
When a stranger called you friend
My vision left to his demeaning
Your care insisted to be his
Now he calls you Mommy
With you calling him your son
Leaving heart in painful longing
Not understanding where it belongs

Like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending our beginning
On an ever spinning reel
As the images unwind
Like the circles
That you find
In the windmills of your mind

Ring around the rosey
Pockets full of Posies
Ashes ... Ashes
We all fall down

Oh my dearest of dear friends you are my soul and when yours hurts
so does mine... I have no words... I have not enough love... to remove
this life long pain. I can only be there for you when all chances of
change are gone. When every breath drawn is gone and can no longer
spew pain and heartbreak

Sweetie your time will come when you can release the blame and
realize She is who She is... I had to find my way there and you will
too... I will walk every step with you. I will pick you up when you stumble
I will dry every tear for that is what you have done for me and what
friends do for friends. With the help of God and me you will survive
this and come out of it a better wife ... mother ... grandmother
I left friend out because you are already the best there is....

This needless to say this was another awesome rendering of that
beautiful heart of yours. Even with all the pain and agony
handed to you ... You still show such love and respect...
Big HUGE hugs to you on this one

Love U More Girlie Girl
