The End

 

And just when all the
beginnings
has to end
even the best ones.

And how one faces
it with a smile,
when all you’ve ever
wanted is forever?

And there you start
anew, despite
of not wanting
to let go.

And then oblivion
comes; forever
is again, yet
another word…

Between here and there

    Wow I love that photo. Are beginnings continuations of endings, just in another direction? I see you’ve had a loss, I’m sorry. May you keep with you all the happy moments and let go of the sad.

      Thanks Deb..beginnings could really ne just continuations of an ending yet in another direction…that’s a really brilliant thought Deb, thank you..

        Thanks, I just read about Zoe, how sad. I did not realize you could get ovarian cancer at such a young age. My heart is with you, your daughter and all of Zoe’s family and friends.

    i have been away without internet for a few days, just reading this. You raised a brave and compassionate child. revel in the love she shows to others, peace will descend. and life even like an elevator that goes up and down and seems mindless and unrewarding isn’t so, for people get on and off the elevator, it’s how treat them on the journey that matters. Love to you and the family my friend!

    This is touching and poignant and thought-provoking in quite an effortless way. The End. Another beginning. Zoe is part of that new beginning as she begins her new journey. I wish you all peace. πŸ™πŸΌ
