To all you here who do reply
I say without a doubt or lie
Thereís something that I canít deny
I love each moment spent

Thank you for your time and thought
The friendship of the poet sort
For inspiration often caught
The wisdom you have lent

For here I have my own sweet world
Comfortable and warmly curled
With the mainsail well unfurled
Where heart and soul can vent

So thank you one and all my friends
Lets journey to our poet ends
Enjoy each word each poet sends
And where each truth is sent
Take care and be well my friends.

Rick

Very nice rick.  I liked the pattern and the flow.  However, the ending sounds like you're going away.

Peace. Love. Forgiveness.
  Blessings and Guidance

Hi Dixie, nice to see you here today, it is a great place to be. Have a great day.

Hi Gifted, not going anywhere my friend, did not mean it to sound that way, but I do understand why you thought that, have a great day and take care.

You were among the first in PiP to make me feel really welcome here.  You were the first who called me "friend" - I'll never forget those things -- and I think of you as "friend".  Your writing is beautiful and your friendship even more beautiful.

Dear Alison, you are a treasure and a welcome friend to me, thank you so much for your beautiful words, each was very much heart felt and enjoyed, let's toast to this beautiful friendship, thanks.

Dear Ruth, hello my friend, this is a tribute piece for you all out there, you couldn't get rid of me, this place is just too much fun and where all my poet friends hang out, I look forward to years and years of writing to come with you all.

To you both my friend, loved your comments, thanks for taking the time out, so very much appreciated, have a wonderful day both of you.
