only one

cold and alone

no hand to hold

just sit and stare

at nothing but air.

dark and quiet

not even a sound.

no one to talk to, whisper to

not a soul around.

i wish he was still here

to make me laugh – feel alive


he’s gone

somewhere else

in some other person’s life.





driving to work

    My heart breaks for you – hard to push a “like” button for something like this. Hugs

    • 4. words4jp  |  October 2, 2013 at 2:00 am

      Thanks. Hugs to you as well. How is your dad doing?

        Not as well as he needs to (or thinks he is). It is just a tough time. He thinks he is going home this week but he is just not ready 😦

        Thanks for asking

    I agree with Pamela, it hard to push a like for such a sad and personal piece.

    Well girl friend you are such a wonderful loving person it will be no time before you love again! Although it doesn’t feel like it I promise you will. Till then keep pouring your heart out on this lovely blog. You are very talented and has anyone told you You are beautiful today? Well let me. You are beautiful inside and out. There is no one like you. No one laughs like you, talks like you, writes like you or loves like you. I think that’s pretty neat! Have a super day my beautiful friend! 🙂

      You say the sweetest things. Thank you. I will certainly keep pouring my heart out – there is much to pour;)

    Love and hugs….my heart breaks for the way you feel right now. Praying it gets better for you.

    Well … it kind of balances the like I just clicked.
    Beautifully written.

  • 17. hastywords  |  October 7, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    Just… enjoying all your words. Your sadness seems to hold my sadness’s hand.

    • 18. words4jp  |  October 8, 2013 at 12:32 pm

      thank you so much – i know i have been writing a lot of sad stuff, but to be honest, it is what is on my mind and in my heart. i spend a lot of time alone (with my dog), so my mind has a tendency to sit in a hole somewhere. When my boys are around, then my life turns sunny side up. 🙂

      i so enjoyed writing with you – if you feel inspired with something and you think i can handle it, please let me know! xx
