October, I Hate To Love You

I hate to love you,
Leaves that change,
Beautiful colors,
Stimulating to the senses
I thought I lost,
You are a reminder,
Of what was taken,
Of what I took back!
I love to hate you,
I remember,
What you want me
To forget,
I remember,
I can remember,
I won't forget.



  1. Happy belated Stroke anniversary month to you. I am a stroke survivor and I too had my stroke at 29 years old. I am now 53. And October is my anniversary month as well. However, I never celebrated the entire month but do so every year on October 6, the day of my stroke. I just recently started to tell everyone I meet that I am a stroke survivor. In the past, I would try to hide my slight speech deficit. I am now a proud survivor and my story is a miraculous one that I want to share with others in an effort to give them hope and drive to regain what they may have lost. So my hat is off to you for being a proud stroke survivor and being an inspiration to others. I wish for you is continued success and good health.

  2. Hello Paul! Wow, congratulations on being a survivor and a happy belated anniversary to you too. I would love to share your story if you want to tell it. It's a great feeling to know that there are other people out there just like you who can understand what recovery is. My email addy is Would love to connect.
    Be well!
