Thank You..

With the honor of being yet another someone to you;

I thank you for being the guidelines of my actions..

For –

You stood by me like an honest friend,

You defended my actions like a pampering mom,

You guided my ways like a teacher.

No, I won’t say those-

‘Without you, I would have fallen into pieces.. ‘

Or that- ‘I would have been shattered.. ‘

But, I was already on to the way of mental destruction-

I never tried to put my efforts to even pre -calculate the actual consequences!

Just carried on with them blindly in the name of being helpless.

Know what?

I never realized the mess I was already into..

.. Till the time you sorted my things for me .

I had taken itΒ for granted that-

I am virtually a psychic case;

And that nothing can unwind it..

You taught me many new dimensions of life,

You have given me certain invaluable aspects about happiness –

In true way, you held my hands and helped me stand straight.

You made me realize that-

I can run, and that I know how to put the steps forward;

And that – I can do it too..

I had lost all my courage and given it into the hands of fate:

I was too scared to take the practical things the way they were,

It had rested in my head that the things could never be right for me..

I thank you

For altering my life and letting me realize that I can do it too !

    Olivia, the intent of real gratefulness for someone so life changing in our lives is powerful.

    Great work!

    Glad you are in the Potluck!

    A wonderful, happy little tribute. Must be quite a friend–even if that friend isn’t another person. Well done!

    As long as you have someone to “make things right for you” (even if it’s you yourself!), you are good! πŸ™‚ After all, it may not always be another person… sometimes, it’s just a dormant side of you that suddenly comes alive, and decides to “make amends” (so to speak)…
    An awesome way to show gratitude…
    Thank you for linking in with poetry potluck!! We really appreciate your participation!

      Kavita.. I so appreciate your words and understanding the essence.. I am so touched since you picked up the meaning so well and penned (typed) your comments here.

      You are doing an awesome job. I had no other way other than linking to the Party.. Even though I enjoy being in solitude; i enjoy being in the buzz too- what a paradox..!! I love myself of whatever I am and hence this small gesture.. πŸ™‚

        Aww..thank you for the sweet words of appreciation, Olivia… mwah!
        And oh… don’t bother about the paradoxical nature of things.. I fit there too πŸ˜‰
        Just go with the flow, I say (I know…so clichΓ©d!)
        But then… that’s precisely one can do anyway.. no?! πŸ™‚

        Love ya, sweetie!!! xoxoxox

          Guess we have a few of us here who are “brave” enough to face the strange shades- not many people accept it- either in themselves or even in others..

          Love you sweetheart.. you deserve it and much more.. πŸ™‚

      Lovely Victoria,
      Am I glad to read your comments here..? I guess we do come across good friends more often- so what if it’s only through reading Blogs..? Who knows someday we meet and share our words in person too..?
      Loads of Love

    Lucky you for having that person, and lucky them for your gratitude – which is all anybody should expect, if that, from helping others.

    Thanks for passing this dish for the potluck!
