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.

The Lighthouse
Dri

Lighthouse you look so pretty
so wise and as cute as one can be
you guide us all
to the ends of our souls
you make us think
you help us find the answers
You help us find our way
know that I have always
wanted to be strong like you
A powerful flashing light
to warn people of danger
even when they tried to
to steal what was mine
to put out the fire that burns
in my heart
to kill the sparkle in my eyes
to be my judge, to crucify me
showing no mercy at all
here I am
I survived once more
and looking at you now
old and abandoned
standing still
facing all the storms
I know nothing will destroy me
because my strength comes from
Heaven
and same as you
my cute little lighthouse
I'll will face every trial
with a smile
I'll win all the victories
no matter how rough the weather
no matter how intense and violent
the waves will hit
I'll be like you,my cute light house
I won't give up.
