There is no one here now,
No one to help me drink
The left-over wine
Of grey yesterdays
And blue tomorrows.
Tangled here in silken cobwebs
Of drifting clouds,
I SING IN SILENCE.
This book of poignant poems was written by a young girl afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis.
They reflect a period in Robyn's life when the average teenager feels indestructible and unassailable. But due to her limited physical abilities, Robyn felt isolated, lonely, vulnerable and understandably frightened of what the future had in store for her.
Through these poems she was able to overcome her affliction and reach out to the universe. These poems are Robyn's legacy.
Here's what readers are saying:
"I found myself pulled in from the first poem and kept reading to the end, sometimes smiling, often with tears in my eyes, but always deeply moved," - Ralph D.
"This beautiful sweet sad poetry helped me put my own life in perspective and stop complaining." - Janet P.
"I shared this book with my 15-year-old daughter who had been having some deep self-worth problems. After reading Robyn's poetry, she seemed to look at her situation differently and began to change." - Rosemary M.
