I, the romantic

who was described as being loyal on a widow’s walk,

am no longer there.

Someone who doesn’t need anyone else

to feel complete.

Someone who wants to share herself

and have one true love

but who can and will go on living

no matter who or who doesn’t show up.

My life has already started

and I no longer have to wait for someone else.

I can just enjoy and thrive and be

and my life is no longer on hold.

The widow’s walk in my soul

is now forever vacant.

I have what I need:

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, http://www.innersunshine.net launched. Thank you for visiting!
