Birthday Celebration Means Gifts For You! #RomanticSuspense #Military

morgan freeman birthday wish

Welcome to my 49th Birthday Celebration! Some folks are freaked out at the prospect of being “this close” to the big Five Oh, but not me. I couldn’t be happier. I happen to be one of those odd ducks who love getting older.

Well…

top of the world birthdaOkay so I don’t like the aches and pains that come with it, but the idea of reaching 50 and beyond doesn’t freak me out one bit. I have been through a lot during this lifetime and I wouldn’t change a thing. All of it has lead me to the place and the person I am today. I’ve had an amazing 23 year career as a veterinarian. I found my soul mate after giving up on ever finding him. I’m living my dream as a published poet and author several times over. I can’t complain!

3D MistletoeTo celebrate this milestone in my life, I want to give away signed copies of my holiday novelette, Meet Me Under the Mistletoe. All you have to do is leave a comment and enter your information in the Rafflecopter.

Was It All A Dream?

Was It All A Dream?

The waves crash on the beach

Pulling me out of a much needed sleep.

The bed we shared the days  before

Was still warm where you laid next to me…

I reach out only to find empty space.

No sign of your sleeping face.

Eyes closed tight

Fighting the tears.

Remembering the same goodbye

Said so often through the years.

Clinging to each other

In the hours before you leave.

Hearts pounding together:

Touching kissing, committing all to memory.

Fighting the urge to just let you go.

Was it all a dream?

Promises made once again

To come home safe to me.

Smiles on our faces

Don’t make it to our eyes.

One last embrace.

One last kiss.

Hearts reaching out for one last plea.

The friendship, the love,

The soul wrenching goodbyes.

Was it all a dream?

Wrapped in one of your shirts

Still smelling of you.

Walking along the shore

The salty mist coats my skin.

On the horizon a distant ship

Starts to come into view.

And as always this is how

My journey without you begins.

Was it all a dream?
