My Poem of the Day


Tanya Nichols 1.jpg Tanya Nichols Sleeping Beauty.jpg


Roberts House

On our toes in

Ballet class

Friends for life

Just as Delores Claiborne taught us to be

We made some wrong choices

Sometimes men would avoid us

Eventually we found what we believed to be love

Our hearts were mistaken and our love was forsaken

But we refused to kick love out the door

Even when we knew what was in store

With our men in control

Our minds not our own

We could no longer get out the door

Your man seemed to have lost his mind

And the unthinkable had to happen

He went on pretending he had not done it

Thinking someone else was guilty

I sit crying


That there was nothing I could have done to save you

I wasn’t there

I had no idea of the pain he had put you through

You painted a picture

Full of happiness and glitter

But in your voice I knew the truth but couldn’t bring myself to tell you

Because I was once just like you

now sadly you are no longer here for me to tell

As your man ended all of your dreams

And now all you do is watch over me

From high in the heavens above

Some day we’ll be together again

Dancing on our toes

In Loving Memory


My dear friend Tanya Nichols

love should never kill you
