Making Me #UseYourWords December 2015

Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked four to six words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That is the challenge, here is a fun twist; no one who is participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.

My words are:
fledgling ~ littered ~ candlestick ~ abandoned ~ living dead
They were submitted by:  
Thank you for such awesome words! :) 

We met when I was a fledgling.
New and untamed.
Lonely and abandoned
garbage littered on the roadside.
You guided me through the darkness,
like a candlestick in a lighthouse tower.
I left the company of the living dead,
and became fully alive.
Aware of myself. 
Aware of life's possibilities.
You awaked my soul.
You infused my being with the spark of life.
You walked with me.
You helped me mature and grow.
No longer a fledgling.
No longer clueless.
You made me a better person.
It made all the pain worth it.
It made the ebb and flow bearable. 
You were worth it all.
Even now that you've gone away, 
and only pain remains.
It was worth it.
I have no regrets. 
Just gratitude and 
Happy memories.
Thank you.
