One

One touch of your hands
One kiss from your lips
And I am falling

One sound of your voice
One glimpse of your face
And my hearts calling

One moment with you
One night in your arms
And I am flying

One final goodbye
Once more alone
And I am dying



 "I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me , this has always been enough." ~Nicholas Sparks from The Notebook

You have proven how much you can say in few words, and beautifully done as well.

ahh, so lovely.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

Nice work. Unfortunately I can relate to the last stanza.  
"One final goodbye
Once more alone
And I am dying"
Sad but beautiful.

Just one word and let it be heard,
Just one time, and let it be mine.

Just one thing, and love I shall bring.
Just one hint, and all will be spent.

Just one word is all you need say.
Let it be me and I shall stay.

Within your life....within your dreams,
My dear, my sweet, my word is seems....

is .......RUTH



 I have learned that the pain of a lost love will fade, But the memory of having loved will last forever.

Mike...thank you so much  

Denise, Martie, jaxjoy and whiskey....thank you all  

David...
Just one heart I have to give
Just one life I have to live
But, I want the same thing too
Someone who's love will be true
I don't want to be your sun
I want to be your only one
Until you can give your all to me
Only friends is what we'll be

Wonderful 1st verse Ruth....and I can understand that 2nd one.  It's rough when our heart has been broken and we always will protect it.   ~HUGS~

Where there is faith,
there is love.
Where there is love,
there is peace.
Where there is peace,
there is GOD.
Where there is GOD,
there is no need.

Ruth, another absolutely wondeful poem!  One thing can do so much can't it?!?

I love simplicity, and you obviously have a handle on it.  REally good, i like to think that less is more.  Very good, thanks.
