Savana, Come Read

Stretching along in vastness, covering the treeless plain
giving me sight of God's country, to never be alone again,
resistant to all of what would dry my soul to take drink
Savana's her name in Florida, and she gives pause to think.

Like the name she embodies, her heart is big and wide
she's like a tropical oasis, and I keep her in mind's sight;
along her bright horizon, she scatters words like trees,
keeping writers happy, she's the writer's key.

Savana, as we know you, you brighten every day,
you give value to our words in everything you say;
some I think, wax poetic, with only you in mind
in responses we look, a search for your name to find.

For if our Savana has come to read, our tropical delight,
then we will have reached a reader who has us in her sight;
for a day without Savana leaves the sunshine dim;
a toast to you, Savana, my cup overflows at the brim.

As wonderful as she may seem to you over the internet, she is equally as wonderful in person...a true, honest, beautiful soul whose greatest ideal is helping others. I could not ever imagine anyone who could fill the role of 'friend' better than savana...our Pepper.

I loved this, especially the line 'scattered words like trees.' I'm not exactly sure what that means, but it's too great to even think of changing!

The words they did come easy, my heart it sings a song,
knowing that we have Savanah here, where she does belong;
good health to you, Savanah, will come to you by wing,
for the angels are a'watching over, just to hear you sing.

Thanks, everyone, for sending get-well messages to our dear Pepper.

Thank you Rainbow, and Sy, for adding your comments here.  I have it on personal knowledge that Pepper, if not better in the physical sense, is better in the mental sense, with all of the well-wishes that have been sent to her.
