a price tag of five thousand dollars for her perfect gown.

His ears could hardly believe the cost and the price
his little girl all grown up, how he had to think twice
He thought as a man of his word, tears fell upon his face,
he couldn't afford it, and how he had felt a disgrace.

I'm sorry honey, I wished there was something I can do.
wanting it no matter what, it couldn't possibly be true.
Please, daddy, I beg of you, Is there anything you can do?
He thought and thought and deep down he already knew.

The worst thing he would do, was to break his daughter's heart,
to cry and tears would fall, it would tear him apart he went to his bank and begged for a loan,
he wanted so badly to take that dress home.

To sell his house he didn't want to do, in order for her to get the dress
for her to be happy and for her marriage to be blessed.

Stolen as a thief

By donette1914


Her dress slid
along the floor
quietly

A whisper of silk
tickle of lace
hid her footsteps

One month before
her six birthday
without fail

Fever rushed
throughout
her body

Her hair was
then cut
short

laid within her
face

Encouraging her
to sleep
impossible night

temperature was insistent
awake she became

A presence not understand
soon took place

Yet knowing that it was
near
She died

A fast-moving fever
any guilty thief
run

who has stolen
something precious
the frail life
that was
irreplaceable.....

new born fawn

The bark on the tree
with green moss
wild flowers
of gold

Red and purple open
pastures
as far as
one eyed do
see

A path way with
dried
pressed leaves
of gold and red

Pine cones with squirrels
collecting
seeds for the
winter

The sounds of birds
singing on branches

Quail of light blue
reflecting on a
day's hike
Reaching our destination

Rewarded......

Born with autism

By donette1914

Addicted to drugs, born very small
could hardly fit in his clothes at all

Autism was the sign, no fault of his own

To learn to talk, he had been shown
we love him very much, ever since he had grown

Smokin hot shoes

By donette1914

Red hot shoes in your arms dancing on air

A date to remember, black nylons drape along my leg
Shoes soon to retire back into it's box....

The roller coaster of life

By donette1914

Life is like a roller coaster
with so many up and downs as we have
twists and turns, the feeling of a high drop
comes unexpectedly as ones
heart beats fast, hands sweat
shaking uncontrollably as
you want off as it is
impossible on the ride as
your going to get sick for
new heights approaching as a
picture is taken, you start to scream as your
hanging on tight
as not to fall off as
your eyes are closed
unable to see the unexpected as if
your life is on a strait path
there would be no surprises......

our blue world

Glimpse of shimmering

moon
evening of blue
stars

A brief moment in
time

Diamonds as rare as a
blue earth

Both were meant for
love

As we gave way to
kissing
holding hands
a glass of fine
red wine

So romantic it gave birth
to a marriage......

No money could reach

Coffee served in style

A cup of joe
trained by the Best
early in the morning
as I rest

The brewing smell
of coffee grounds
Mr buck buck
making his rounds

So fresh indeed
I love the most
served in style
with a piece of toast

I trained him well
if he only knew
up with the chickens
in the morning dew

To make my food
my very next thing
may push too far
he'd rather sing

I'll leave it alone
it's done for free
enjoying the moment
because it's happening to
me


Chapter 64
Your time that means the most

By donette1914

Your time

memories like these come once in a while

Your time

pitching a tent with a parent out in the wild

and the rose will
live on

freshwater trout
swimming

cool breeze
refreshing hot summer day
singing birds of a world

Protect your marriage

By donette1914

A man's love
for his new bride
a woman that is
dearly loved
oh how beautiful
is that as
their love for
one another is
a treasure of extreme
value that needs
protection from
thieves

A wedding photo on
a wall for ones to see
reminders of that special day
of a marriage that was meant
for two
never leave a window
left open
and allow ones
to creep in and
ruin everything
you put your
life into

To find love in
a world of this
size is truly
a treasure chest
hard to find
as a needle
to an eye

Put upmost value
to your marriage
for two people
only to own
this key
no one has
this right.....

I love you so much

Your hand in marriage I do
want

For the world to know
that I am in love

You're more beautiful
than the earth
and the sky
of twinkling stars.

Finding one another
was rare
like finding a
blue diamond

We searched years to see
each other face to
face

We were drawn to the passion
as our lips
pressed
so smooth like
butter

Butterflies fluttered
within
the first time
we met

It was love at first sight.

As the days grew
our feelings grew at
every chance
every moment,
we made love happen

Without a doubt
our love is forever

I anxiously wait for your
answer
to my question of
eternity.

Will you marry me?.....

nonexistent
world falling
apart daily

loves ones
listen carefully
a bond through thick
and
then
can break the
code
of silence
from the ones
that mean the most

The runaway bride

By donette1914

Marriage is such a serious commitment
The most important decision I'll ever make
I do love this man? yes with all my heart
What if it doesn't work? I know It will
We have such a good thing right now
Maybe we will fall out of love? I don't see that happening
Divorce may happen one day? I hope not
A baby? one day maybe
It's possible he could walk out? I don't believe so
Is Marriage truly worth it? Commitment?
I guess I'll never know
Why not take a chance?
A opportunity may not come again
Marriage is a life time of love and happiness
There is nothing to be afraid about when you love someone
Marriage is a beautiful thing, When you marry the right person.....

With ribbons and lace
how beautiful
they smell

They fill the
afternoon air

Where are you?

We planned our
wedding day
for months as
our love grew
daily

We would be there
always

All the
many gifts unopened
from our friends
and
family

Could it be so, your
name is called
the
Runnaway Groom?......

wisely

Before it takes its wings

our life could be over
in a flash
and what matters most

Bottles that comes to life

By donette1914

Open the top of bottles

As time travel of words
comes to life

Great, Great, grandparents of
old to hear

Their voice of what they
sounded like

Pulling the cork
sounds of laughter
ones having family
dinner together
happy times

Everyone is alive
talking to
you

The smell of your
mother's
perfume

Her kind smile as she
looks up to
you

Your favorite food
cooking as
it gives aroma of
recipes
of long ago

If only this could
happened

Death wouldn't find ones
they will live
forever as
the bottles lives on......

What good is faith?

By donette1914

A world

bombs going off

turning quickly
destroying families
unbearable pain
of death
a loved one

Precious children
gone with gunshots
bloodshed of no
guilt

No faith of
answers if
put on back
burners.

Gone within seconds

By donette1914

Protection is vital
feeling safe
secured
withstanding elements

Great power that swallowed

Pieces of once
a home of love
to wet firewood
unusable

Escaping death in a moment
lives so precious
spared

By donette1914

Were they born to be
an orphan

Listen, can you hear it?

By donette1914

Listen
Can you hear those wild
horses?

As they roam
free in a blanket of
snow

They trot with the
hooves of their
feet

Like thunder
rushing water
as they gallop
forcefully

Beauty surrounds that

A black stallion
within the mist
of fog

Thoroughbred
takes the lead

To have seen this
in person
a rare glimpse
of
serenity

Our ears
would of been
privilege........

A gift to have a brother

By donette1914

A brother
who knows
where
you're coming
from

To be there for
you
with understanding
words
of encouragement

Your best friend
how to say
things
at the right
time

That would touch
your heart
or to keep quiet
when
necessary

This is gold
and not to be
taken lightly

If you were to hold
the
sun
together
the years
wouldn't
pass you
by

without you
noticing....

The highest house in the world

By donette1914

A house on top of the world, unbelievable
A cliff is at your right hand, all angles of the sun

Took balance and coordination, to succeed
GPS is nonfunctional to the touch
Grocery's impossible.....


Chapter 75
Fear of butterflies

By donette1914

A butterfly with pretty
colors
so small and
gentle

They'd make a
garden filled
with
sunshine

But for others
their
fear
is real
and
terrified
they become


Won't go outside as
a beating
heart
and panic sets
in

They'd rather stay
indoors
then be faced
with a
butterfly
of terror....

No job of any
kind
survival is
a daily
battle

Hunger pains
unbearable

Dirt floors
outhouses
lice
ticks
fill the ground
you walk on

Sugar
butter
unheard of
expensive
rare to find

Clothing of
holes

Barefoot, no protection
for feet

Leaky roofs of cool
damp rain
raindrops in
a silver bucket

Wood stove to cook on

granted

Pigs fat
a luxury

Being thankful for what

New beginning of spring

By donette1914

A new beginning of spring
fresh new pink leaves
liquid waters to mirror
a reflection

Winter of shining diamonds

would soon wither as
seasons change

Enjoying moments to treasure
memories to make
pondering how quickly
leaves do fall

The concept of love

By donette1914

Screaming!
A heart of distress
holding tightly
not to let go
calming words
reassurance

Crying uncontrollably
to reach him
a world of his own
understanding
the concept.

Wanting to be needed
cherished
feeling emotions
deep within
hidden.

Valued
shown by action
expressed
able to feel be heard given a voice

Can sense the meaning
feels love
without one word.

To love the unlovable

By donette1914

To love the unlovable
of mental distress
hearing voices
a world of their own
walking in their steps
they walk

How they long to be loved
wanting approval
to feel free
in a cage of years

Cries silently
as tears fall
lost to a world
of selfishness

Thoughts that don't make sense
fear
as if they were real
pleading for help
ones to listen

Please!

Born to want love
needed
belonging
letting ones in so
as for them not to
die within
would show
true colors
true love







Author Notes My very close friend has mental illness and I have love her unconditional. She is the best of the best and I looked inside and found a person that truly is a gem.

Leaving your family

By donette1914

Somewhere, in time, I married you
so long ago, if I only knew,
if we were to last and stay in love,
cherish each moment and take care of.

The vows that were said "To death do we part"
we both knew and memorized by heart.
What did those words mean to you
with everything, you put me through?

Pregnant with our fourth child to be,
life doesn't offer, "any guarantees".

You felt you couldn't handle this,
and gave me my final kiss.









Author Notes This the true story of my life and this is me on my wedding day.

Being Born Colorblind

By donette1914

Being born
to a world
not knowing the meaning
of
purple
blue flowers
rainbows that cross the
open sky
deep waters sparkling

Unmatch clothing
of different shades
to a world of their own
unmanageable

Not to take for granted

breathtaking
scenery
knowing how beautiful
things can be

To walk in one's shoes
how it would feel
to the unknown
of the meaning of
color

Our trust we did build
the secrets we kept,
Willing to fulfilled
privacy to expect.

Made this truly last
throughout the years,
Today and in the past
and all the tears.

As my heart is wonderfully full,
My joy is set,
How you really pulled
the day we met.
