Love you have found me.

Is it true love?  Only time will tell.

I dare to open my heart.

My heart lays vulnerable on the ground.

Be still my beating heart. 

I love you so.  And you love me.

We are a whole.  In unity.

I face the future.

Strong and bold.

With your love the future I behold.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about friends.  Cheers!

I stand alone.

I face my illness alone.

But no!  You are there my friend.

I can say to you things about every day happenings.

I can say to you what I can’t say to others.

I can reveal to you my deepest secrets.

Without bounds.  Without discretions.

Will I dare?

Even talking of the simplest things brings relief.

I converse with a fellow human being.

I converse and communicate.

I open the door and pull back.

Don’t flood her with information!

Stand back, only crack the door.

And let her hear the echos of your soul.

The echoes of your soul.

Friends…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about friends for her first book Martha.  Martha is needing a friend.  Slowly Martha is trusting again.  Slowly she heals.  Cheers!

Oh my friend I miss you.

Suddenly I need you more than ever.

My family is still important,

But I can’t tell them everything that I can tell you.

My old paranoia is back.

Who will you tell?  Can I trust you?

I have trusted you in the past.

You’ve always been there for me.

I open up even more.

I walk with you and heal slowly.

To open up is to heal. 

Thank you my friend.  Thank you.

I fear…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem for her book Martha.  Sorry I didn’t post on the weekend!  I lent my computer to my daughter.  Terrible!  I survived.  Cheers!

I stand before my fear.

My feet firmly planted on the earth.

My heart strong.  My back strong.

I stand before my fear.

You will not take me today.

I know you for what you are.

It is all in my mind, my fear.

In my mind in the deepest fathoms.

But I free myself. 

With help I free myself!

I face my fear.  It is all in my mind.

I fear no more!

Friends…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about friends.  It is for her book Martha.  Cheers!

I want to tell you everything.

But how can I friend?

I first have to know how you’ll react.

My secrets are so dark.

It will help me heal to tell you.

Do I dare?  Will you protect me when you know?

Will you keep my secret?

Do I dare?

I know you to be a compassionate person.

I know to trust you to a certain degree.

This will test out friendship.

Yes I dare.  In God I trust.

Yes I dare.  Please be worthy!

I love…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar writes a poem about love.  Her blossoming love.  Cheers!

I love.  I dare.

What will it bring me.

Pain and despair?

Love and warmth?

Safety and protection?

Somehow I think that if I love then I am protected.

This is wrong.

If I love, I have warmth and compassion.

The man who loves would protect me.

But to what extent?

For if he loves he would protect.

But I have no reason to fear.  It’s all in my mind.

So now I can love for loving.

And not for protection.

I am free.  Free to love.

Do I dare?

Courage…a poem.

Meredith Gibraltar shares a poem called Courage…it is for her first book Martha.  It hints to some of the dilemmas she faces on a daily basis.  Cheers!

I fear.  I stand.

I stand before my fear, scared.

It takes all my courage to face my fears.

I face my fears with hope and courage.

Everyday is a battle for me.

A battle that requires hope and courage.

I hold my imaginary dagger.

Ready to fight any evil that comes my way.

I now have the tools to fight you.

I think of my dagger and feel the cold steel beneath my fingers.

With my courage I face my fear.

My courage is also my weapon.

With my courage I face my fear.

I stand and do what I know I must.

I feared so much as a child.

Now I heal and work out that fear.

That fear for my life.

That fear of what took place so long ago.

It is hidden deep within me.

Hidden and has lain dormant for so long.

Slowly I heal.  I face that fear.

I have courage and hope.

Courage and hope for the future.

I will heal.
