STILL SEARCHING

If you’re lucky enough to fall in love…to have love enter your life…

from your parents, your friends your relatives, your partner or your wife…

 

Once you have been blessed …and that seed of love is planted

you cherish every moment……you take not a thing for granted.

 

For over the years there is a truth…a lesson about love that you’ve learned:

how it feels wonderful it when you give it…and even more wonderful when it’s returned..

 

And you truly believe that this feeling will forever be extending

never giving a thought that your love story has an ending.

 

You get so involved in love

in its mystery, its excitement and it’s laughter

that you think the only way your fairy tale will end

is happily ever after.

 

But when someone you love stops loving you

when they say they’ve had enough

or when a loved one dies…or for whatever the reason

the road turns from smooth…to rough

 

you find yourself crying and moaning

and you hope 

and you wish 

and you pray…

because in your heart you know that fairy tales

aren’t supposed to end this way.

 

Then somehow with the help of your friends,

your siblings, your father and your mother

you discover the end of one fairy tale 

can be the beginning of another.

 

So you jump on your white horse

and with your injured soul

and your heart in need of mending

you turn to the next page of your Fairy Tale…

 

in search of your happy ending.

My Horse

 

Used to be a beautiful black stallion, now a bit time worn. This was an excellent prescription for survival. I kept saying "yes" as I read, remembering the love lost, the courage found to seek my elusive Nirvana. Off again today, searching with hope apocket and a halo of curiosity atilt over the questing head. Mounted on Old Shoe, I plod once more up road.  ~ Lady A~
