A Robert Frost Quote

The woods are lovely dark and deep, but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
Robert Frost

I have always interpreted this quote for myself in relation to my mood disorders. Relating the woods to death, or giving up this good fight as I like to call it…

But the rest of the quote is what inspires me.

” I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep”.

There is such beauty in this quote. I remind myself that I have promises to myself, to those that I hold near and dear, to my beautiful babies, to my Creator. This fight is never in vain. It is worth every struggle, each pain endured, every tear shed.

It is the good fight my friends… and no matter the struggles, just hold onto whatever faith and whatever hope you can find.

Simple words from a friend, a smile, a kind gesture, the beauty and hope that a new day offers, your dreams and goals. Always start small, baby steps, to reach the bigger aspirations.

And do not forget to love yourself, to LEARN how to love yourself. Say to yourself… ” I am worth it “… because you truly are.

♥ Love and Light my friends. May you have peace and beauty in this day.

    1. I love Robert Frost… but what is odd is that I have read this poem many times, and only this stanza is what I remember most. lol.
      Thank you ‘Nessa…as always, your words lift me up.


  1. I love this quote. I paraphrased it in a piece I wrote called Promises which I published on my blog. Do you know that Leonard Cohen also references it on the album 10 songs in a track called A Thousand Kisses Deep. I can recommend this not only as a song but lyric wise it is quite something.


  2. Beautiful! I enjoyed this so much. Yes, at times I too would like to get lost in the dark woods and be welcomed by a velvety black embrace of peace, to rest from the long journey and seek peace….but there are still promises to be kept and lessons to be learned….lovely thoughts from you…from this you can tell what a loyal, loving and devoted mom and friend that you are….I applaud you with your efforts to journey on….well written….thank you
    love and light
