* these poems are a continuation of realizing the "Gifts" found during my "moments in time" with this special man.
~Treasures Left Behind~
Thoughts of you drift sweetly in to my mind,
your love is a gift-a treasure you left behind.
As this times passes...I still feel you here,
my mind accepts your gone, my heart keeps you near.
Your words are always with me, helping me to be strong,
I feel your hand in mine-in my day I take you along.
I miss you more than these simple words can ever say,
Yet I know your in my soul-guiding me along my way.
I promised you I would not be too sad or lost in my pain,
So please forgive the tears I cry ... they heal me like spring rain.
When I start to feel lonely or lost-I know it wont last long,
I only need to read your poems or listen to our song.
Time will heal this heart of mine, my words again will rhyme,
I keep you close in memory, so very grateful for this time.
~Searching For The Words~
There just are no words to express what I really need to say...
to make you understand-I was lost and you helped me find my way.
How does one thank another ... for breathing life back into their soul,
For the gifts of love, faith, and trust, allowing me to again feel whole.
I am so deeply grateful for the inspiration returned...
for the encouragement and honesty, all the lessons learned.
Pain from the past had been costly and taken its toll on me,
then you taught me about forgiveness-the way it sets us free.
So now as my heart still heals...this I need to do...
Give to you these simple words ... to express my love, respect, and gratitude.
thank you baby...loving you, always...
