30 Day Letter Writing Challenge; Letter 13 — Someone you wish could forgive you

*image source: google.com/images

I have a sister
who despises me
Over what is
ancient history

And treats my family
with utter contempt
From her own past
seems she is exempt

To my loving husband
she’s never spoken
Though I must say
his heart isn’t broken

He looks at her
in the same way
That she views me
with open display

It bothers the others
more than does me
Because of this one
thought I do carry

When there does come
her judgement’s time
Whose will God see
as the greater crime

Those sins I’ve committed
done in my past
Though they were seen
as plenty and vast

Or the one that
she repeats every day
when no forgiveness
is shown my way?

And yet I wish
she would at least try
For my parents sake
before the both die!

30 Day Letter Writing Challenge; Letter 12 – The Person You Hate

*image source: google.com/images

To say that I hate you
really isn’t worth my time

Though what you did to me
is truly such a crime

And although you continue
every day to dis’ me

I could so care less
you’re ancient history

If I were being honest
I would have to say

That I just despise you
in each and every way

You really are a cretin
as a man, a poor excuse

And waste no more time on you
’cause really, what’s the use!

Letter 12 — The person you hate most/caused you a lot of pain




30 Day Letter Writing Challenge; Letter 11

In memory of my Aunt Louise
how dearly I miss you

One always there for me
you loved me through and through

I was treated like the daughter
that was not given you

 You were the second mother
that I was blessed with too

I know you are in heaven
where from all pain you’re free

And that I’m finally happy
you are glad to see

Until the day I join you
there in my eternity

I know you’re the Irish Angel
who’s watching over me!!

I love you, Louise!

Someone You Wish You Could Meet – 30 Day Letter Writing Challenge; Letter 9

(image source: google.com/images)

I wish that I could
meet you face to face

While I’m still living here
in this earthbound place

Oh angel guard of mine
if I could only see

Your image, shape or form
whatever that it may be

For I have no doubt
of whether you are there

And I know that I am
forever in your good care

Yet it would just be nice
or better said it’d be Divine 

If I could meet you here
oh Guardian Angel of mine!

Internet Friend – 30 Day Letter Writing Challenge; Letter 8

(image source: photobucket.com)

However can I choose one
to pick of all you
for there is no way
that this I can do

I have so very many
new friends that I’ve met
since I first started posting
this blog on the net

And truly I do cherish
each of you out there
while I personally have started
with some my life to share

Want you all to know 
what to me you mean
because you are the best
and there’s no in between

Thank you all for being
so caring and so kind
for without all of you
I’d have lost my mind!

Mark – 30 Day Letter Writing Challenge: Letter 7 – Ex-Love

(image source: google.com/images)

My dearest love Mark
I’m writing to say

Things I should have
a long ago day 

When I loved you
so very much more

Than ever I told you
at any time before

And now you’re gone
angels took you away

Home to the heaven
where you will stay

You were the best man
that I had ever known

Deserving of more love
than you were shown

Oh Mark,  I’m sorry
that I didn’t see

The life for us
that it could be 

Today I am sure
that you’re fully aware

Of another great man
I’ve found out there

 Whom I love as much
as he loves me 

And his name’s Mark too
now isn’t that “funny”?

30 Day Letter Writing Challenge; Letter 4 – Sibling

So now is the time
for my brother Hugh

That in the family
is known as hubedoo

It truly is a blessings
that we still have you

After everything last year that
you had to go through

In that short time ago
you were pronounced to die

And it was on God
that we did rely

When the family did
our prayers to heaven cry

To please delay you from
having to say goodbye

Just thinking of it and
how the doctors now say

That only by a miracle
is there any way

You are here in
such good health today

And it’s looking like
you’re here to stay

Declaring that I love you
would be putting it mild

You’ll always be “big brother”
to this younger child

As every little girl knows
our brothers stand apart

And my dearest Hugh
you’re special to my heart

30 Day Letter Writing Challenge; Letter 3 – Parents


There’s so much about
my parents I could say

But to tell the details
there is just no way

I’d have to write a novel
to be able to cover all

That they’ve done for me
and it would not be small

My parents are the rock
on which I’ve been built

While many tears over me
have been by them spilt

To say there were times
that I’ve done them wrong

Would be an understatement
in the short and long

And it isn’t easy to
 have to say it’s true

But if I didn’t then
I’d be lying to you

I have made them suffer
more than a daughter should

And I would take it back
if in any way I could

In alcohol and drugs
I once lost my way

For which my parents have
been often ones to pay

 I don’t just mean in money
though that included too

But rather in the heartache
that I have put them through

Yet I have been forgiven
and my slate is clean

For my complete turn around
they have now clearly seen

Although my love of them
I did not always show

It is my hope and prayer
that I’ve made them know

And I take the time
in my life today

To try to show them
in every kind of way!!

Teresa Marie  1/16/12 ©

I love you very much Mom and Dad!

Thanks for always being there for me!!




30 Day Letter Writing Challenge – Letter 2; Husband

What can I ever say
I’ve not said before

About the one man
that I love and adore

God sent you back
’cause I needed you more

Than the heaven that
you were aching for

My heart’s forever yours
my darling, my dear

And of that one fact
let me be perfectly clear

Whenever the end of
our lives grows near

Together we’ll be in
the next no fear

 But now just because
you float my boat

It does not mean  
that you can gloat

Yes, I am kidding
you smart old goat

When all my love
to you I devote!

Teresa Marie  1/15/12  ©


(I had to add the last stanza because my darling husband was being ficious when I was reading this to him and suggested a line like – And to me it is clear, I deserve to drink a beer – to which I added – All because my little dear, I had to put up with you here!  Smarty pants, lol!!)
