My Poem of the Day

A Story To Tell

I have a story to tell

I wonder if you will come

If you will come and listen

Or

If you’ll want to read it on your own

It’s a never-ending story

The pages go on and on

I wonder if I’ll scare you with the truth

Telling you all that I’m about

All that I’ve seen

Wishing it could be unseen

The things I’ve done

The places I’ve been

The people I’ve met

The people who have died

The babies that were born

All who’ve come and gone

The hunger

The pain

The sickness

The sadness and the joy

I’ve seen it, I’ve said, I’ve read it, I’ve written it

Will you come

Will you judge

Will you stay

Will you go

I’m not sure if I want to know

I know that I’m so afraid to show it and to know it

Can I count on you to come and hear my story

Your husband may always be your Mr. Right,

But you will forever be his Mrs. Right all the time.

Without you, he may lose direction, then need reflection

finding only regret for he did not listen when you were talking.

 Be gentle, forgiving, patient and understanding. Mr. Right will always be grateful.

Love will be forever binding”© Felina Silver Robinson

Irish Twins

School picture 6 Felina School picture2

Sisters by blood

Sisters with love

Sisters that no distance destroys

Though tattered and torn

Aching and ailing

Still the same not to worry

It’s amazing near or far

That one knows what the other feels

That one knows what the other is thinking

That one knows the other is in danger

It’s amazing that two different bodies

Can suffer the same medical diseases

Limb by limb

Heal the same

Hurt the same

And

Want the same

We are the same but different

One married

One single

One with children

One without

Both with cats

One with more

One with less

Nonetheless

The same but different

We’re “Irish Twins”

My Poem of the Day

Bring Down The Walls

Walls aren’t just made of plaster, brick and stone

Some walls are invisible

but are stronger than any stone

The strongest walls are made of emotions

Pain

Anger

Fear

Prejudice

Resentment

Ignorance

Loss

And

Blame

Each of these get in the way of reason

Time

Healing

Learning

And

Reflection

Brings

Rationalism

Then and only then

Will you be able to

Bring Down the Walls

And

Your Heart will be fully open

My Poem of the Day

(08/24/14)

Without You Now

Without you now my days are always nights

My laughs become cries

My ups become downs

My smiles become frowns

I try to stop all that’s now upside down

You were the life in my step

The beat in my heart

The jump in my skip

You were the light in my life

Now I can’t seem to go on without you

It’s hard to imagine

But I know I must

So I trust you to help me find my way

To continue living on

Without you now

My Poem of the Day

(08/23/14)

Words of Love

I sit by the window gazing at the stars

Looking for the words I might use to tell you of my love

How do I tell you that I’ve loved you forever

I fear that you will deny me

And

I will be left to sit and pine for the rest of time

How will I find the strength to tell you

Will you listen

Will you accept me

I long for you to need me

I long for you to care

If only I was brave enough

To dare and share

My words of love

My Poem of the Day

Darkened Clouds

Driving on the open road

A glance at the dark morning sky

The clouds look so dark and angry having much to say

They brought with them a chill for the rest of the day

Sending the warmth of summer elsewhere to stay

The sudden chill in the air made me long for a warmer day

There was such a darkness in I saw in clouds above

Nothing friendly

No beauty to the day

Just a cruel reminder

That

The cold would soon be here to stay

Maybe tomorrow

The friendlier clouds will return

And

People will again wear smiles upon their faces

And I will be able to look to the skies

Without fear of what the clouds might bring
