You are beautiful I love you so much

I feel your struggle so deeply in my heart

And I want you to know

As long as you need me I will be here

The path we have travelled

Has led us into so many wildernesses

And there were times we fought

I craved your love

So much

But was just a nuisance

As you were growing

And had not time for a pesky young sis

But still I fought for you

When I could

When Mum sold your piano

Because the Nun’s abuse

Swore you off playing what they called ‘The Devil’s Music’

It was only Dean Martin

And you wanted to play it for Dad

Yesterday we shared how they hurt you

And of the way you struggled to get away

So many things about you I never knew before

And now as you falter on the precipice

After the loss of our Mum

Feeling as though the enormity of this new step forward

Is entirely too much

I want you to know I will be here

Because I am finally realising

Perhaps there is a way to be present in love

With a fully open heart

And still live my life

For this I know for sure

Our love for our family never ends

Even when it meets with

Challenging circumstances

And out of this fire

Of struggle and loss

We are weathering

We are forged

Into stronger, braver and more loving souls

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
