Mo Ghràidh – My Love

Love Letters to Vietnam 2023

We’re in this together. A new year, a new beginning — ours!

Dearest Mo Ghràidh,

It feels so odd to be half a world away from you

Untouchable and intangible — AYE!

But alive once more in my dreams are Him and I

I miss the warmth of your brown eyes. The kind warmth that emanates.

I miss your smile. Infectious — making impossible to contain my own.

I miss the sound of your voice. Sweet, calm, reassuring.

The comfort from you saying: “Everything’s going to be okay.”

Your absence has made my heart grow fonder

You keep telling me I’m stronger

Your absence has made me aware

Of a surprising revelation, way over here

Your patience you give, above all, sir — I deserve not

But for our love, tis one for the ages to preserve

Ours — When two hearts combine

They listen to the each others whispers

Whispers lead to plans, plans lead to our innermost souls

When our souls speak

Pray tell, mo ghràidh, What do our souls say?

We will endure and we are ever so sure, says I!

I readily await your reply, my dearest mo ghràidh!

With All the Love I Possess,

Your Lorene


  1. Wonderful poetic love letter. How have you been, Eleanor? I saw a video of some women noodling and I thought about you when the pulled catfish as big as they were out of the water.

    1. Oh my! Well, thank you and typing as I laugh uncontrollably because that comes to mind when you think of me. BAHAHAHA Things have been very hard, I’ve been sick. I’ll know in the next few weeks how bad it is.

      YES! They get grotesquely large!

  2. Welcome back, Eleanor. Your sickness has not dulled your fine talent. This poem is heart rendering. (I hope I’m not too forward, but I noticed a little view change: ‘But alive once more in my dreams are Him, and I”. – Maybe ‘you’ in place of ‘him’? ) Hope you don’t mind me saying.

    I am partnered with a precious lady suffering from a critical condition. Whatever your diagnosis, never forget; there is always hope. So beat your condition and NEVER Give up! Blessings, Peter.


  3. 💜 It’s not “sickness” it’s Energetic Evolution EveryOne; it’s The Light and Physical Bodies Merging…explain that to pretty much any Doctor and that Doctor will laugh at you EveryBody; for Me, fortunately, I Have Had Several Doctors who didn’t laugh at Me

    nisi mortuus nec neque nolite vicit 🤭🤫🤐
