WOW! I am sitting here with tears in my eyes. You are so REAL and so RAW. Your emotions boil to the top and spill out into the most beautiful, coherent thoughts. I would buy anything you put out. I have always been drawn to people who speak from the heart, writers who do the same and movies that are about real events. Fake stuff stands out like Hollywood fluff. You, my dear, are the real thing.
I have read the poems that you sent me over and over.
They really touch me and I feel blessed to know someone
that can express such deep feelings. Beautiful poems!
They make me cry and soothe me at the same time. Very healing.
I hope you don't mind but I sent some of your recent poems to my daughters, sister and brother. They sure do admire you as I do. I was at a point where I got tired of them saying how strong I am, and me constantly putting on the "smile and the act" and so I vented to them, trying to get them to understand. I don't want their pity and hate making them feel so sad, just wanted their understanding and for them to know how it really is. I think your poems and emails help me to get my point across to my family. Thanks Sheree, and please don't charge me, LOL!!! Below is what my youngest brother wrote back; he's only 38, married with three beautiful children, but he sure writes to me with so much maturity and understanding which I never thought he had until now.
This friend of yours, Sheree, writes with extreme power and emotion. You can't help but be touched and moved by it. It is a gift to all who read it and heeds it (not taking each other for granted, taking care of each other, as you said). Please relay to her my admiration of her gift of expression------
When you write poetry, it reminds me of my life. Your writings are so meaningful and from the heart, just beautiful. You truly have a real gift for writing.
I have always loved reading your letters. The way you describe everything I feel like I have been there, also very wise words and what a wonderful tribute to your Dad.
Another masterpiece... You really flow...
You do inspire Sheree, especially in your poetry. This poem is lovely.
Your poem is beautiful!
The poetry is amazing! It is evident that God has given you this gift to use out your tragedy.... Thanks so much for sharing your gift with me. Thanks for including me in the message. You're right--living in the past or the future too much robs us of the present. Your message reminded me. And right now, I'm right here, and enjoying it.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Your poetry is always so beautiful. I do hope you will have it published. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Nope, no way could your poetry and emails of your life bore me. I love to hear from you.....Still waiting for them to be published. Someday we're going to see you on Oprah's show. She loves books, as you know, and recommends the good ones. Yours will be different than all she has recommended and there are a lot of people out there (not subscribed to a widow/er list) who will read your poems and it will hit home and maybe will help them. They will know that others have the same feelings that they have and they will also know that they are not going crazy. Please keep writing Sheree; you have wonderful gift.
Thank you for another beautiful poem; it says how it is for all of us.
You are a ministry of healing. Hugs
I guess that's what I have enjoyed most about your
poetry. There is a healthy balance between
rejoicing and grieving, celebrating and remembering, laughing and crying, that is inspiring. I sense that is what others respond to as well. Keep writing.
This is a beautiful poem.....and it expresses how I
feel too. It's the little things that I miss the most. ((((((Hugs))))))
You sure got my attention; I was glued to the computer reading this beautiful love story. Please keep writing. Lots love
Thank you for sending Chapter 3 and I can hardly wait for the next chapter. You write so beautifully. Thanks also for your mail to Zebranet. Your mail is always interesting and inspiring. I hope you are feeling better. Take care.
Once again, Sheree....... you touched the heart of another with the thoughts and words of this poem.
I have been reading your poems and stories, some have been to close to
home, and some have made me laugh.
Sheree, I could have written that with very few changes, but you do it so eloquently. Thanks for sharing.
