Taking On the World

I can't unlove
the most vital
role in my life

This life 
would have been
without you 

Letting you go 
left me 

When I dream 
I still see
you and I

taking on this 

In my next life 
I pray we find 
each other

      1. I follow hundreds of blogs. More than I can possibly keep up with. I decided that I can only follow more new blogs if I feel that something that I read on their blog strikes me as extraordinary with subject matter that I want to follow. Sorry.


  1. Wow! Great Poem, Penny!!! Powerful, emotional and hopeful too!
    Bellissimo, My Dear, Bellissimo!!

    You may enjoy this song if you haven’t heard it yet! I love it, especially the lyrics



      1. Ha! I always love your posts, My Dear! I agree, Jennifer is fun to listen to. Have you listened to her song “Sugar”! That song and video makes me laugh. Oh, back to “Unlove You” can you guess the line in the song that She told an interviewer she loved best? It surprised me when I heard it because it is the one line among a bunch that I loved best. See if you can find it and get back to me.

        Hope you are having a great day, Dearie!

      2. Ok, I’ll guess. “they want a taste of my cherry pie but I’m never gonna give ’em a piece”.
        Am I close?
        This is one by her that brings me to tears just about every time I watch/listen to it.

      3. Yes, You are awesome!! Right again – I heard that line and it knocked me down – “I wasn’t lost until you found me”!!! Classic line. I’ve been trying for two years to wrap my head around that idea and to even describe it!
