Sitting here and thinking how
My life much richer is now
For all the ones I've chanced upon
And the tapestry that was spun

There was a time when noone came
No friends to play in childhood game
Noone to shelter from the rain
Nor the adolescent pain

Yet in my inner heart I knew
Secrets rare and secrets true
Were wishes horses, all would ride
Other dreamers by my side

Then one day I dropped my guard
I never did something so hard
In my heart I let others in
And found I had a friend

By ones and twos they gathered near
Soothing all my darkest fears
A tapestry we began to weave
And I once more believe

For youth need never fade away
As long as I can dream and play
On wistful horses I will ride
With other dreamers at my side


Alicat, the dreaming Persnikitty

 As I sit here dimly thinking
Watching modem lights a-blinking
Churning out poetic hash.
Lord, in all Your piety,
Help me keep my sanity:
Please don't let the modem crash! --Alicat

This is lovely, Alicat! As long as we can dream we can remain young at heart!

I like your rhythm here, and the sentiment is lovely.

Ali this was great!  Once we open up that heart and dream our dream, there's no telling what can happen!

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.

Awesome poem Mr. Kitty   I think friends are a cherished part of this life! I love the imagery of "Wistful Horses". Being a horse lover...made that all the more meaningful to me. Thanks for a beautiful ride.
Hope to "SEE" and I  do mean "SEE" you soon!!!
