    on friday, july 18, i lost another really close friend of mine. she had been sick for a few years now, and so in the end, all of her loved ones were there. when we cleaned out her hospital room, we found something she had been working on for some months- letters and poetry addressed to everyone who was there for her. this is the poem she left for me, beautiful soul that she was, so i wanted to share it with the forum. this is my way of letting
    Rukia Shannon Blair shine one last time....

    Thank You & I Love You
    I want to put this on record, in case later on I forget
    In case I cant talk anymore and I didnt say it yet
    Thank You. I Love You.

    It's funny how death can open your eyes
    And you begin to understand all the shadows of life
    How something so feared I anticipate with total peace
    And I wish I could take you on this journey with me.
    When I look in your eyes, I see that youre hurting badly
    Yet you have been here daily to make sure it's ME whos happy
    I know your existence has been chaotic; and you need peace
    Here, you rearranged your life and brought me sweet relief
    You've devoted so much time and love to someone else
    So why is it you think so little of yourself??
    Negativity takes over so quickly our thoughts and minds
    But maybe if i say this to you enough times:
    I Love You. I Love You. I Love You.

    Don't buy into the men who said you werent enough.
    You survived the coldest winter streets- girl, you are TOUGH!!
    and sure, it's hard to lose loved ones, but Glory Be-
    You're just getting another angel- You will never lose me!
    You think God is taking from you, but your viewpoint is wrong-
    Did you ever think maybe He's trusting you cause youre strong?
    And all these broken people with shattered glass inside
    Cross oceans of turmoil cause your heart is so wide?
    That you are able to hurt so tender cause you love so deep?
    That when you touch peoples lives, you change them profoundly?
    You are special.You are worthy.Stop letting them tell you any less!
    Dont be where I am now before realizing- your power is your Self.
    You know my only fear of dying is leaving loved ones behind
    I'd like to share a piece of Heaven with you; Peace your mind.
    Until the end of time I will embrace you with my angel wings
    And do my best to protect you from life's spiteful things
    That doesn't mean Fate wont come around, push you, shove you
    but when it does, you will remember:
    Thank You. I Love You.

    "...I'm not afraid to die. To me, life is just like a job- no matter how much you enjoy it, you'll be pissed if you dont get a paycheck on Friday!! Dying is just like a Thursday."- Rukia S. Blair

    peace--Ms.Dy
