My nightmares reflect on my childhood

My dreams more focus on today

There is a difference, let me tell you

To remove myself from the past, I wish there was a way


But there's always a rainbow after the storm

And in my husband I have found this

He comforts me in a way no one else can

It's in the way he holds me and in his kiss


Glad we have made our own family

And that he is such a great human being

Knowing my children will grow up

by example, mostly by what they are seeing


We can weather any storm

be it a snowstorm, tornado or a deluge

I can handle anything, because

this man of mine is my refuge

              GRACIAS CHRISTINA POR TUA POEMA A NOS GUSTALA ! They operate on several experiential levels and are always elegantly penned. We all have NIGHTMARES and they are conditioned by negative vibes ~ but (alas) cant be eradicated ! DREAMS are different and highlight today experiences ~ generally in a positive way. Thirdly there are your day to day experiences with Hubby & Family. The comfort one obtains from a Loving Partner or Husband can eliminate all NEGATIVES for a SEASON and too have your own GENETIC Family as well ~ is a blessing not enjoyed by ALL ! It encourages couples (like Angela & I) to see the JOY & REFUGE Married Bliss can bring ~ AMEN. Angela & I have both studied Human Genetics and can't wait for the enhanced love our own brood will bring ! Abrazos y Besos de BRIAN ๐Ÿ˜Ž y ANGELA ๐Ÿงก
