If I have but a day
Let me spend it with those I love
Memorizing faces
Visiting places
That dry the tears with smiles.
If there's only an hour
Let me hold your hand
Try to understand
The miracle that graced my life
When I met you.
And if my time is over
I pray that it is you
My eyes last see.
For if your voice I hear
I know I'll have no doubt
That heaven's near.

This is truly one of the most beautiful poems I have ever read, to be framed and hung on the wall, or to be etched into the minds of all poets.

Liz, Such a compliment from anyone would be a delight... for it to come from someone whose work I respect and admire leaves me speechless. Thank you!

Belle

This was a very beautiful poem, and a true reflection of the fine spirit that lives within you.  You can be such a devil at times, yet you have a sense of beauty about you that shines with a light of its own.  Thank you, sweet lady, for this poem.

 Don't ask me where I'm going, just listen when I'm gone and far away you'll hear me singing softly to the dawn.

Summoning her morning Buzz,
Unless of course he's gone because,
The only times it seems she posts,
Her lovely rhymes is when she boasts,
Elucidation of his virtue,
Roaring laughter from the bayou,
Nephews love our lovely auntie....


Another lovely poem auntie!!!
