"Please watch his back, but grasp his hand
He’ll have no time for doubt
If the flames should pull him in
I beg you, pull him out!

But if in flight he meets such plight
And you gather him from ashen floor
Whisper gently my love for him
As you carry him through Heaven’s door…"


yanno?... I've missed reading you...
and especially reading your heart...

this?... is ALL heart...
wrapped in beauty...

one of my favorites...
and, in my opinion, one of your best...

love you, gale...


"When the power of love overcomes the love
of power the world will know peace."

DG~
In times of gentle recall I come back to read your heart in this piece~
I was thinking, while reading through the replies, that no ink that comes from the heart is ever 'forced' ... it flows because the poet writes what she feels~
That is just what you did in this piece of heartfelt pouring~

Love you, gal~

Thank you miss margie...
If this had been "forced" it would have taken me a lot less than 3 yrs to have written it!  Perhaps if Mr. Jordan knew how to read it, he could appreciate it

I appreciate your replies!

hugs, g

DG~
As you and I previously discussed, I am sorry that your feelings were hurt by someone who obviously doesn't understand the heart of a true poet~

Oh yes ... and I see you don't solicit 'critiques' anyhow~

YOU are the sweetest person to have struggled for so long to perfect this for hubby~

Love you~
