Fay Slimm.

Untying Yes.



Untying Yes.

Threaded up tightly with strong mesh of steel
Life knots itself into into troublesome streams.
Romance arrives then brings endless feelings
And finite seems time when rush is unleashed.

Haste stifles emotion and crushes dreams.


Safe in much waiting, I have found methods
Of sailing to wanting where, need refreshed,
Love's patient anchor lowers then dredges
New destiny's whys to bolster the whens.        

Then untying yes is easy, not knife-edged.


As decision's guide opens Paradise-gates
I enter and know that he is there waiting.

    Angela here - Good Evening FAY. Life is Paradox it creates for us BOTH an Opportunity for Love to Flow but also paradoxically counters it with Obstruction. Patience is the KEY ! To avoid & shun negativity and embrace positivity to fulfil our Dreams ! Love the final paragraph *Together for now & Eternity.
    The night I met Brian - It is interesting there was another Mature Man (George 36) at the Dance who was single and worked in Radiography so our paths crossed quite a lot. I knew He liked me and He was easy to talk to but He was a Humanist and had no respect for my Catholic Faith. He was a good Dancer but even in the Waltz there was no rapport between our Hearts. At 28 I wanted to be married and start a Family - but I had to be in Love ! In the Band Interval I was sitting with a group of Ladies (mainly Nurses) some of whom Brian knew through the Diploma in Nursing Course @ the College. They introduced me and my Heart awoke ! The first Dance was a Waltz and he asked Me for a Dance - and the rest is History. *Cometh the Day - Cometh the Man !* AMEN ! George watched us Dancing and knew instinctively that He had met his Match and I had met Mine. The Men were outnumbered 3 to 1 so G did not go Home empty~handed just empty~hearted ! Even after that Brief encounter Brian & I knew we would never have to fall in love ever again ! The Paradox is that for Brian - the fact that I was a Devout Catholic was a very big POSITIVE - Ours really was a Match made in Heaven - AMEN !

    Blessings & Peace & Joy
    Love Angela & Brian & Smokey !
