Words Of Comfort: A Collection Of Poems and Inspirational Writings comes primarily as a result of requests from family and friends seeking a special way to honor the memory of their loved ones. Though this is my first collection of poems and inspirational writings, it has proven to be my most rewarding genres for it has allowed me to enter into the innermost part of my being, revealing, tapping into, bringing to the surface tender emotions that have been safely tucked away from others, and, in some cases, from myself. Writing poetry has lifted me to new horizons as a person, as a woman, as a spiritual being. It has been cathartic and has affirmed the old sayings that the energy we put out returns to us; and, that so often, when you think what you’re doing is a blessing to others, actually turns out to be a blessing to you.
But what I cherish most in writing this book is having been given the incredible opportunity to honor life – the lives of so many wonderful people who I knew personally and loved unconditionally.
So as you read each poem, each letter of inspiration – my greatest wish is that you find calm, peace and joy in my Words Of Comfort.
