    Broken womb

    She never thought of life alone
    as long as he danced with her
    in the quiet of the night as their
    shadows among silk intertwined;

    She never saw the dreams fade
    when she looked into his eyes
    with hopes of tomorrow walking
    the aisle of forever in covenant;

    She never dreamed of infidelity
    when she gave what was God’s
    to one who was just her mate,
    not her biblically breathed cover;

    She never knew the truth in the eyes
    of the one she desired, never loved
    only to see the first time was the one
    time needed to sidetrack tomorrows;

    She never had the heart of the one
    whom she loved but was not in love
    for only the one who we give our
    heart can gives us the desires of it;

    She never saw him coming when he
    smiled her way, paid her more than
    a little attention and showered her
    with compliments of beauty and joy;

    She never thought she could be loved in the
    way a woman should until the one God sent
    embraced her, adorned her, cherishesd her and
    spoke words to her confirming his covenant love,

    “You are not your past…”

    our past is our testimony but we cannot live off of our testimony as much as we cannot dwell in our past. we are today, not yesterday. God is the I AM, not I WAS or I WILL BE...

    thansk for the read...

    MRD YOU MOVED ME!

    NOW THAT WAS A LIGHT BULB MOMENT THAT I WILL CHERISH
    ALWAYS. SO MANY SISTERS ARE ASHAMED OF REPRODUCTIVE
    ABNORMALITIES AND STERILITY, THEY FEEL AS THOUGH THEY ARE INCOMPLETE AND THEREFORE UNWORTHY OF LOVE AND MARRIAGE CAUSE THEY CANNOT GIVE THAT ONE THING CHILDREN.
    YOU TOOK ME THERE AND IF THAT WAS NOT THE MESSAGE IT IS WHAT I RECEIVED FROM IT AND IT TOUCHED MY SOUL!

    MR. D

    this piece reminds me of my broken ties
    the broken ole car and the broken vow
    yet i fine comfort within this piece
    like the spirit movin' within my soul.

    to finally discover that one...

    the soul mate that makes every moment a joy to live...that ignites every fiber of your being...and shows you just how much your presence means...that's knowing happiness.

    masterful piece, d.

    i read a book about TRUE HAPPINESS in relation to GOD...talking about how, when we follow GOD's commands, how easy things come to be...how we tend to look at the world in a different light, a light not centered on the material but on GOD and HIS goodness...and, in doing so, we see the good in others...we stop judging because we realize that it's not our job to judge...at the end of the day, when you kiss your mate, goodnight, and give THANKS for the many blessings you receive, you realize that LIFE IS GOOD...and you begin to get a sense of what TRUE HAPPINESS is all about.

    thanks again, for this peace, d.
