I bow my head in silent prayer
I give thanks for all youíve done
Though the list is long this year
Your name resides as number one

You gave wings to my grounded soul
Freed my heart from its restraint
You nurtured my desire to give
And suffered me without complaint

You were there when my need was great
And when I didnít know I needed you
You gave me something no other could
And asked not what I would do

You inspired me to be better
To be kinder, gentler, more forgiving
By your standard, Iíve seen the way
To exemplary poetic living.

You may wonder who touched me so
But never realize it was you my friend
Iíll not tell this secret to anyone
Just thank you, here at the end.

Devine, Lovely expression. And seems the tribute of thanks is well justified.

I am still struggling to define all the things I am thankful for. You seem to have a wondrous talent for revelation within your verse Lady deVine. I bow to your skill with words.

Thank you all for your lovely comments. If you think the poem is about you or for you, you're right. If you think the poem couldn't possibly be for you, you're wrong, it could. Maybe, just maybe....

I knew before I read your response to the comments that you were indeed speaking to the masses...

Just goes to show everyone, that PdV is a class act.

Gentle words from a gentle heart
Such lovely sentiment I could not start
It matters not the poet who
But know that I'm inspired by you
