Description: This is for my friend Cat. I have come to know her and this is how I see her. A delicate flower in the desert and capable of enduring almost anything. She is a survivor. This is for you Cat, I love you.
Desert Rose -------------------------------------------
You're still here
because you know
how to survive
being that you are wedged
between a few rocks
and a dry hard place,
even still, you have
taken root and bloomed
despite what others may feel
you seem to lack to endure;
A sand storm could not
cloud the vision of any
who have come to know
how beautiful you are.
Nice tribute Mags, to an obviously close friend. I have had the chance to read some of Cat's work and have exchange some amount of dialog and from the little I have gathered, she seemed like a very nice person.
I enjoyed this Maggie, though I think you should remove the caps Mags. Cat tends to prefer to write common letters (not like you don't already know that...lol)
And also that maybe you could change the last line, something more along the lines of
'how beautiful you truly are.'
That sounded a bit better but thats only a suggestion. Anyway, great write.
oh Trina, you've made me cry.. this is just beautiful and i'm at a loss for words.. you are a wonderful person, and i feel blessed to have you in my life, even though i've never seen you! i am humbled by this, my friend. when i'm feeling down, i will read this again and again, for it comes from such a beautiful heart to a friend who's seen some rough times.
you are a gift, Catlady. thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Maggie This is simply Beautiful Your Friend is so gifted to have you in her Life But I know you feel more gifted for having her in your Life You are a very special person Maggie as you continually bring Love to Others I For One Thank God Every Day for bringing us together as Friends God Bless Your Friend Always Ron
Very interesting and sweet write, maggie. The comparison.. a desert rose.. indeed is a survivor.. even with all the circumstances still able to bloom. That is something/ someone to admire, I bet. Of all the words you used, I liked the last one most:
A sand storm could not cloud the vision of any who have come to know how beautiful you are.
Clear that she means a lot to you but i think she must be glad to have a good friend like you, as well.
