JINGLE THURSDAY POET'S RALLY-SHE IS NO LONGER ALONE!




She is a mommy to be
and
She is no longer alone.
Once 
a long long time ago,  
she was all alone.
Then
She remembered when
Papa and Ma were always fighting
with
Never a moment of peace,
Never a moment of hope.
Hence, 
She was not alone.
Though
Papa was always drinking
and
Ma was always unhappy.
As
Papa was a writer, 
Ma was a dreamer.
She was their little precious.
Even though
Papa was never famous
and
Ma was just a shadow of 
the woman she used to be.
Evidently
They were not rich but 
they were together,
until
One fine day
When Papa and Ma overslept
and
She tried so hard to wake them up
but
There was just too much smoke
and
There was no one to help
hence
Papa and Ma died in the burning house
and
She lost the only home she knew
for
She was only five.

Suddenly,
She is feeling cold,
Someone placed a very thick shawl
lovingly and tightly 
on her,
She smiles and turned to see,
The man who saved her,
The man who is now her protector,
The father of her unborn baby,
and
The man who is her beloved husband,
Her long lost soul mate,
He found her in an orphanage 
and although 
he is twenty years older than her
Needless to say,
She loves him with all her heart
as
they grew more in love each day,
Indeed, 
they are lost soul mates , 
but now found
and 
Soon she will be a mother,
She has a home of her own now
and
She will no longer be alone.

  28. You are too kind, Shakira. It's good to feel like I'm a part of the blogging community, not apart from it. The big tree image is wonderful on your blog - so comforting.

    And of course I love birds, so for me the freaking poet award is such a nice one!

    Quite a poem you wrote, Shakira. You've experienced the yin and the yang of life!

    Ok, my friend. That's enough from me for now... :)

  29. Dearest Robert,

    Please do not feel you are not part of the
    THURSDAY POETS' RALLY.

    I look forward to your participation on Thursday?

    Yes, I have experienced both yin and yang of life
    and that is what LIFE IS ALL ABOUT!

    Have you a blessed weekend, Robert.

    hugs

  30. Hi Shakira! :) Here's a copy of my Great Big Thank You, posted in your WP blog:

    " Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! dear Shakira for the lovely award! I followed the link back but it took me out of WP to Blogger.com and I got a little confused dear I shall go there again in a moment. You are an amazing and prolific blogger and poster and my poor dumb brain has had a little prob following things back to origin and so here I am now thanking you, kneeling down in fact and offering my gratitude to you for the honor of placing me on your award list.

    I see what you say to all of the guys about what happens if your awards are not acknowledged but please please please know that I always start by thanking you personally on my own blog page even if I am late in coming here to sing your praises and to shout out aloud my happy THANK YOU

    You are far cleverer than I am, I am only a poor poet who scribbles his stuff and hopes it gets noticed. I am humbled in your presence and all that you do is like a Hollywood Bowl supermarvelous happy event ..so please forgive me for being late in coming here to say with pleasure in my heart that I know you and that you are gracious and giving and that you found it in your heart to include me in the award list

    One day I will be as famous and as popular as you are – that will be an amazing day!
    Meantime I am deeply glad to know you… hope your hubby does not mind if I now give you a BIG HUGZZ! in happiness and gratitude, dear Shakira

  31. My dearest John,

    Now, if I do not know English a little better, I am rather sure you are rather angry at me.lol but hey, it is COOL. A correct and well deserved reaction to my rather unfriendly post. lol Now, I think I LOVE YOU as you are so outrageous.

    John, I am not even half the poet or blogger that you are , this is what I truly feel but hey, unfortunately, I am not a good critic and I cannot give you good analytical or technical criticism on your poetry. That is the reason why I do not comment on poets' blogs much.Thank you for the vote of confidence though.

    It is not you as I do have more than two blogs, just my safety nets after I almost lost my blog at blogger.com when it was wrongly declared as a apam blog by its robots.

    Actually whatever I wrote on the post about the TAG thing and all others were narrated to me by other blogger friends. Obviously, I really cannot tell people off for it is THEIR RIGHT to their own opinion. Then of course, there are others who feel NEGLECTED when not nominated. It is rather TOUGH. lol

    As for me being famous or popular, John, I am just another blogger like you, I never ask for being either but I am not going to be ashamed of having a great network of friends.I hope you are in my circle of friends too, John.

    Anyhow, I am SORRY if you felt hurt as the message is not to create TENSION but just my stand on matters at hand, in regards to awards and nominations.

    We are COOL?

    Oh, the HUGS are cool, I give them all the time. Hubby is well informed.

    hugs
    shakira
