If …

If all who hate would love us
And all our loves were true
The stars that are above us
Would brighten in the blue
If cruel words were kisses
And every scowl, a smile
A better world than this
Would hardly be worthwhile
If those who cry would whistle
And those who frown, laugh

If hearts were only jolly
If grieving were forgot
And all the tears of sorrow
Were things that now are not
The love would kneel to duty
And all the world would seem
A wonderful place of beauty
A dream within a dream

If men ceased to worry
And women ceased to sigh
And all were glad to bury
Whatever had to die
If neighbor spoke to neighbor
As love demands of all
Then every hour would glisten
And every eye would shine
And if people paused to listen
Then life would be divine!

I am a writer/author that loves to inspire and entertain the minds of others. I’m inspired by just about anything and everything imaginable. I first realized the power of the pen as a youngster starting with my diary. My teen yr. Were spent quite often in my room where I would scan through poetry books and magazines for hours, often ripping out pages of interest. I lamented over social issues of justice, the end of the Vietnam war, race, poverty, and such. I discovered then, that writing for me seemed to be a way in and a way out of myself. And certainly, a way to respond to the world around me. My friends often assisted me with rewriting things I loved which all had a sacred spot. At 17, I was off to the city where I landed a job as a Nursing Asst. In Edmonton. I loved working in the presence of pioneers and always felt they had a lot to offer as I listened to their stories. However, it wasn’t long and I had a new vocation: Motherhood! I got caught up in the busies of life but writing little pieces remained a priority whenever possible. ~ My friends and family used to say things like: “You’re really a good little writer...You should write a book one day”...but I buried that thought with a lot of others along the way. But then I started writing a Christmas Greeting when our children were small along with random silly poetry and little notes and quotes. Feedback was always welcome and I gained a lot of confidence from peers over the years. At times in my life when I felt empty or afflicted, I turned to ink. And believe me; some days INK was all I knew! I am a survivor of breast, skin, and colorectal cancer and am truly grateful for the gift of life. I am also grateful to my husband for affording me the luxury of travel; visiting many countries. I’m a mother of four daughters, a grandmother of nine, and a mentor to many. My husband and I live in two places: Calgary, Alberta, and our sunny sanctuary: “Ecuador” where we live 3 months of the year. I am happy to announce that in 2019 my first Children’s book: No Home For A Pigeon” was born. My second Children’s book entitled: “A Boy Is Not A Kitten” has almost come to fruition as well. After that, I will proceed with a Collections book sharing some of my most prized and personal poetry and other writings of my life’s journey. I hope You will follow along with me... Joyfully, Loreexx
