20 years to go

Dearest 47 year old Joycelyn,

Be still and continue praying

For you have come a long way

God has blessed you

With more than you can think of

Your fears didn’t kill you

They made you stronger as ever

Continue to shine like the star

For yourself, your family and the rest of the world

Love Lots, 27 year old Joycelyn

Dearest 14-year-old Joycelyn,

Pray once you get up, for it will be your daily armor

Still, pray at night to thank God for your blessings

It is true that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger

But do not push yourself too hard

Love all the there is to love

And forgive all there is to forgive

You will have a super great life

A loving husband and bright kids

If at times you feel so down

Remember you are a star

Made to shine

For yourself and others

Love Lots 27-year-old Joycelyn

The star that I used to know

There she is sitting pretty in her book

The book that I gave her

How can she glow when I am so broken?

My shattered heart cannot take it

But the world still pulls me in her direction

My feet walked towards her

I do not know what to say

She looked up

Her eyes so brown and deep

“How can you leave me like this?”

I asked in silence

Heaven does not hear my woes

No answer, just plain quietness

I am so mad

Mad at things but not at her

How can I hate such a beautiful creature?

She, who stole my heart away

But then decided to break it anyway


She was the star that I used to know

The star that I can never have, again
