Remembered Forever
Once upon a falling star I wished to find the one that held my heart. 
Four answered my call within the year. All very different and each so very far away. 
The first took me places I had always feared but with him I was never afraid. 
He could always make me smile when no one else could and had awakened 
something inside of me I had thought died so very long ago. 
We met at a time when I was happy and secure but my world fell apart 
and yet he was there through my darkest time and remained till 
I returned back into the light. We may not talk often 
but he is in my dreams and seems to come around 
whenever I need him most.

The second from my past of long long ago. He was the key, 
where I was to learn who I once was before this time,
 where the end of that life was not done and had to be 
rectified in this time so we could meet for the "final battle" 
and finally put things back where they deserve to be and 
to never destroy another ever again.

The third another from the past and part of the puzzle that had been uncovered. He had come to help with the battle and to help with the powerful gift that had been given to me. He helped me realize what could happen if the gift was not used wisely. He also reminded me, it was possible to truly care for friends. He would do whatever it took to keep them from harms way. He told me not to give up on my dreams even when they turned to my nightmare. He showed me I didn't have to be afraid.

The fourth was my shaman,wiseman and counselor. He came when I was at the end and ready to fall into an abyss of nothingness and really didn't care if I ever came out alive. Out of all he surprised me most, giving encouragment and showed me light where there was only darkness. He asked nothing of me, which was a very strange feeling, I was not used to anyone not wanting or expecting anything from me and really didnt understand what I was suppose to do. He said he wanted to know me, and when things from my past had been revealed he never condemed or made me feel ashamed. He treated me like a true lady. I didnt know it then but I have recently come to the conclusion because of his kindness he showed me I was worth more than I thought or allowed myself to think I was. 

Each of them reached something inside and they shall forever hold a special place in my heart.
 I believe each was sent for a reason and as suddenly as they appeared in my life they faded away just as quickly.Time has come and gone since then but there will be some little thing that sparks my memory and I am again reminded of the dear friend I miss so very much.

So I dedicate this to those very special friends who brought me laughter,sunshine,swirlys,waterfalls and lollipops. I love you all for very different reasons and thank you for the sweet memories each of you have given to me.

As you have said, each came into your life for a reason and for a season. And the impact they had on your life you expressed very well. Your writing here made me go back in my own life and think of some people who affected me. Some good, some not-so-good. But the lesson was learned from them and you learned a lesson from each as well. The voice of experience and wisdom yells so loudly here. I respect this work of yours a lot for it made me think.

Seek no solace from the dead in spirit… your cries will go unheeded. Tough some be close and seem a place of refuge for your soul, they too may be lost, unable to hear you, your cries or anguish.., caught up in a world that has consumed and taken them hostage, lost in a labyrinth with no escape, unable to find their way out, hurting much as you may be. Look to the LIGHT. Though you may not KNOW who/what/where/when/or why…, one step to the path of freedom rests within you – your desire/will to choose ‘good’ and seek it in your life…, asking it’s continued presence…, ‘expecting’ it to come. We are all drawn to that which our hearts/minds are focused – good and evil. Be well Rhiannon.

Anyone can make you smile or cry, but it takes someone special to
make you smile when you already have tears in your eyes
