WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN

By Jeanne Marie And Charles Robert Lindholm

I Can Hear The Silence
As It Whispers . . .

What Could Have Been
Will Never Be.

As Bittersweet Memories
Replay In My Mind
And My Soul Knows Why

As My Heart Cries
In The Darkness
Of The Night

And Tears Fall
Upon My Pillow

    1. Ahhhhh, Thank you, Rachel!! So appreciate your sweet comment! This is an example of a duet between Jeanne’s stanza at the beginning and mine after that – wouldn’t normally reveal that but since it’s You and it’s a good example of a duet (lines added to an existing piece to make a new one) I wanted you to know. Her lines just spoke to my heart and life experience and she was so sweet to allow this duet to go forward! So nice to see You! I so appreciate you spending time on my blog and with my words! So happy you find it worthy of your precious time!!!!

        1. Yes, I would love to try More, if you are willing?? Off to a great start! So, Would you like to do a stanza and send it to me or maybe a couple? I will let you lead? I’m not a good dancer? LOL!

        2. So very Happy to hear your response was – Yes!!!! I think we can do some really great writing!! See if you can tease yourself into 3 or 4 lines on a new topic that moves you and send them to me!! Oh, Maybe you can share 3 or 4 topics/subject areas that move you??? For reference and as seeds of inspiration?

    1. Oh, My Dear Jeanne!! I cannot begin to describe to you how thrilled I am to have this piece of ours come together and posted!! YOU are an angel for trusting me with your precious words!! Your words were so powerful, intimate and magical that my heart could not keep from responding even as I read your words. It really captured my experience and touched me.

      Thanks again, My Dear for the honor and privilege of writing with You!! You always find a way to make my month!!! Now you are a member of my Inspirators Club – those who have written with me or inspired me to write from something they have written! Welcome to the Club, My Dear!

      Hope you are as happy as I am!! Mmm!
