Saying Goodnight - Poem by Melvina Germain

It's actually been a very quiet and peaceful day. I shared a few words and hope someone out there found a little comfort while reading through. When you lose someone and a friend or associate tells you, you'll get over it in a year, don't believe them, that's not true, we never forget those we love. We move forward, we make changes and we live on but the memories are always there and often we find solace in remembering.

A new partner who truly loves you will always give you that space and never allow jealousy to enter in but with that their must be a balance. Enjoy your memories but enjoy what you have in front of you on this earth as well.

Have a beautiful evening everyone, peace, love and light to all...Melvina Germain.....
