    Hello Brenda,

    The format of a long narrow trail illustrates a life pathway, your journey so far. The 'goodbye ' makes it sound final, but I think it's more like the end of a chapter. I'm so looking forward to the next instalment .

    Seriously, this is a wonderful way of telling us who you are.

    Well done.

    Michael

    Hi Brenda
    An interesting poem portraying you as a person your hopes and fears. The way it wound on down the page made me feel like I was travelling on a journey of discovery.
    Loved it

      Thank you Milly! You always wonder (well I do because I'm kind of weird like that-lol) what people will remember you by after you are gone. I mean it won't really matter to you obviously because you are no longer there but you wonder what kind of mark you made on this world. So many people do so many awesome meaningful things with their lives and are celebrated as such. Other people have dedicated their lives for others and nobody but a handful even know who they are. Others have overcome such horrendous hardships and lived their lives in relative obscurity and no one even knows what they had to do to survive. This was my way of telling who and what I am, nothing fancy, with fears, phobias, life and love. Thank you again! Take care-Brenda

    Brenda,
    This is breath-taking. I like the format as it takes the reader on the journey of your life so far and tells us about you.
    You would like to be remembered for being witty and I think with this many people will as you seem like a very down to earth lady.

    Keep going, Em

      Em, thank you so much! I really appreciate your kind words. I like to think of myself as being pretty down to earth-nothing fancy. I'm happy with the dollar menu at McDonalds more than some fancy 5 star place. Thank you thinking of me as being witty, that really means a lot! Hugs! Brenda

    Dear Brenda, this is something I often ask myself. Nobody is perfect we all make mistakes, bad choices or using poor judgement. All we can do is learn from it and do better. People who truly know you and accept you for who you are will always remember you. There are some they won't until we are gone. That's when they realize what they had. Your poems speak for itself, you are down to earth and you have a great sense of humor. Enjoyed reading. Take care

      Dagmar, thank you so much! I guess when I wrote this I was trying to forgive myself for some of the stupid things I've done and hopefully others will too. It is so very true of how much we realize what we've had after it's gone. Life is so very short and we need to live it to the fullest while we are here. Thank you for thinking me funny-my husband laughs at my jokes but I think he kind of has to-we do sleep in the same bed-lol! Take care-Brenda
