Finding You

I wrote you a letter yesterday,
Rolled it up like a scroll.
Using ribbons of paper mache',
I tied it with my soul.

I sprayed it with "Eternity".
Slipped "Our" picture inside.
With every dream of you and me,
And all my hope that's died.

Then tied it to another string,
A helium balloon.
Waited to hear the night birds sing,
Then went to face the moon.

The stars were bright and shining,
And I knew one held my wish...
As my letter held my heart's pining,
So I sealed it with a kiss.

With a sigh, I looked up to the sky,
Touched the letter with a tear.
Let the balloon fly, wiping my eye,
I watched it "disappear".

Knowing long as Heaven holds a star,
So my love for you holds true.
Wishing no matter where you are,
My words are finding you.

Michael Anderson

When God puts a tear in your eye,
He puts a rainbow in your heart.

It is so beautiful to see the love a man holds deeply for a woman and to see it expressed so deeply...

Michael, I have to say that after reading this over - I have chosen it as my most favorite...although sad, you touched it with magic....the words you chose, the ideas and thoughts within it - absolutely dreamy, yet so "real".....I can see you doing this, just because you're such a romantic.....I love that about you...This piece does something to me I can't explain justly...except to say I love it - - and you.

------------------
I beckon you to come...I lure you with my tongue... - poet FemmeFatale
