I can’t stop smiling.

The storms have died

My mind settles down,

Retrospect, abandonment

You fill me up.


I’ve been running on empty

Way too long.

I’m happy to give in

Finally, to this.


It’s been a long

And weary road

To get here.


I see you waiting

I can’t stop this smile,

And yours is lighting my way.

    I haven’t had time to respond lately but all your posts come to my mailbox Es-tee. YOU are an amazing lady, you are giving me so much inspiration. There are not too many people with the guts to put raw emotion like your writing out there like this. I thank you from the bottom of my heart, you have bowled me over with your insight, compassion and a love for someone who must be the most special man on earth..because YOU love him.. a Goddess of Love.. that’s what so many of us have thought of you over the years. Don’t stop, don’t delete Estee’s View, the world needs to read it and understand…just a little bit. LOVE you. Karin
