ABOUT THE AUTHOR
My name is Adriana, and though I have a nickname, an American friend has told me I have a beautiful name, and uses only my full name. I am a woman, a dreamer who has a passion for life, and loves writing, and I must say, that I breathe words in and out.

I started writing in 2003, as I was internally urged on to do so. Poetry is a natural outcome of my life, and I felt that I was guided or maybe even destined to write, a feeling that took over and could not be stopped.

I love writing all types of poems and am glad when emails arrive from other people on the web, telling me that I put into words exactly the way they feel. Helping people is a nice way to forget about one's own personal problems and keep on going. Another reason that I have been writing is to improve my English. As English is not my native language, writing in English is another way to be even closer to this beautiful language. It has always come so naturally to me, that I can consider it a gift from Heaven.

I was born and raised in Brazil. In marriage, I spent some time in the USA with an American citizen. Sadly though, it did not work out, and I returned to my native land, Brazil. Memories of the time I lived there are nice, and one day I hope I am able to go back to that beautiful country to visit and enjoy all the good things it has to offer.

Teaching is what I do as an occupation and have a love for it, while writing is not only my love, but a hobby and a friend as well. As life's trials come I realize just how blessed I am in God and that He is everything to me.

My children are grown and are young adults now. One is currently living in Italy and works as an Architect, and the other is a psychologist and lives here, in São José dos Campos.

Soon, I will be a grandmother and will continue writing poetry and enlighten people's lives with my gift.

My ultimate dream is to have one of my original poems used as lyrics in a song, and then hear it on many radio stations.

My Gratitude
Dri Cook

Another year has gone
and I'm still here,
if I'm still here,
it means I'm not
done yet,
so, before the year ends,
I want to thank you, Lord,
I want to thank you for
my life,
for your guidance,
we both know how hard
it was,
I still remember
the trials,
the tears,
all the fears that
I had to face
all by myself,
I remember
there were times
it was so dark
that I thought
it was the end,
but like a soldier
I won one battle
after another,
you're amazing...
you promised me to never
leave me and you
kept your word,
I know there is
no other God but you,
you walk along
all the way,
you never leave
a friend in the middle
of the road,
you stay no matter what,
that's true that
I did not feel your
closeness all the time,
but I'm sure you
did on purpose,
you wanted to increase
my faith,
you wanted me to
trust you blindly,
to make me stronger,
and I'm here, Lord,
still,
I made it again,
I want to live,
I must live
and give my soul
a reason to celebrate,
I'm here, Lord,
to tell the world
that you're always in charge,
and if you're in charge
why should I panic?
I know that I fail
and sadden you,
I know how weak I am,
but I want you to know
that I try, Lord,
I try so hard,
and yet there are times
I disappoint you
so badly,
I feel shame for my
mistakes,
please,
be patient with me,
mold me,
forgive me,
heal me,
stay around
even when I'm not deserving,
because to you, Lord,
I'm always worthy,
I also want to tell the world,
to trust you more,
to let your presence cheer us,
lift us,
change our lives,
and the reason
I feel free to tell
the world all this
is because you died for us to live,
which other friend would do that?
which other friend would be so
giving,
so perfect,
so eager to save us all?
Another year has gone,
please, Lord,
know how grateful I am
for all the blessings,
and before I go,
one more thing:
allow me to grow in
faith,
to understand my truth,
to be willing to love
especially the difficult ones,
I'm your creation,
please, stay
till the end
of my days,
amén.
