Remember ~ Always ~ Remember ~

When kisses and handshakes have long been forgotten
And people and places no longer seem near
If life’s weary journey gets bad and then rotten
And cares seem to fill you with fear
When all through the daytime you worry
And then in your eye comes a tear
If smiles seem to leave you in a hurry
And people don’t smile when you are near ….

When people you’ve left, you cease to remember
And people you’ve met don’t know that you’re there
When bright June days seem like December
With shadows of gray everywhere
When the burden of living weighs on your heart
And people are cruel and unfair
If no one is present to take your part
And no one is near you to care ….

When you haven’t anyone you can turn to
And your life is beginning to drag
And you can’t do the things that you yearn to
If your hopes seem to die or to lag
When you can’t seem to muster up courage
And your back ‘neath the burden does sag
If you are much too old for your age
And the things that are done seem to nag ….

When you look for some of your old pals
And you think, “Here, perhaps is the end.”
If you hope you’ll be meeting the dear guys and gals
And you’re wondering where summer you’ll spend
Remember ~ there’s one that is always true
There will constantly be someone thinking of you
Remember ~ Always Remember ~ I’m your friend

I am taking a break from blogging.
It’s been 18 months since my sister died and I have been depressed for too
long and need to go into therapy to help me deal with my loss and the deep grief .
I shall miss all of you but I hope to return in better spirits ~
Be well everyone and keep safe and be grateful for all those
wonderful people in your life ~

  1. So sorry to hear that you are still having a tough time, Margie but you are doing the right thing by getting help. I have some experience with grief and for a while it’s expected but when it drags too long it can really get you down. My heart goes out to you. I wish you luck with therapy and hope you will feel much better very soon,
    Take care of yourself. Hugs Caolyn

  2. Self-care first. We will be here when you come back. I’m also seeing a grief counselor after this pandemic. It’s been 5 years since my mother died, but time can’t heal this wound.

  4. “When you look for some of your old pals”

    That’s exactly what I came to do! :). I’ve been missing you Margie :). Sorry I haven’t been able to ask how you are so much lately. You really really have had it very tough with this grief, for good reason too. But you are right that it does seem that therapy will be important and helpful for you now πŸ’™.

    “There will constantly be someone thinking of you
    Remember ~ Always Remember ~ I’m your friend.”

    What a beautiful note to leave it on! Thank you very much, I will remember this bit :), and the whole poem was so nice, and comforting to read. I’ll know that you’re thinking of me and I’ll be thinking of you. Take care Margie, put yourself first! πŸ€—πŸ’™.

  5. I’m very sorry to see you leave and I admire you taking control and looking for different ways to deal with your grief.
    I hope you can find joy again. In the meantime I’ll be thinking about you and I will return to your beautiful poems once in a while.

  6. People won’t remember what you said, but they’ll always remember how you made them feel. The lost of a sibling is something I have experienced twice in my life. There is no time table for grieving. You are always so kind and caring in this community. Please know that I will miss your comments and your poetry. And I wish you peace.πŸ₯€ Vx
