With heavy heart and saddened eyes,
I've come to say my final goodbyes.
It pains me much to leave the forum for good,
but it pains me more to be misunderstood.
Words, you know, are strong in power.
They can lift, encourage and even scour.
For each of you I've much respect
and have enjoyed the thoughts and intellect.
From poems of comfort to those which scorn,
a truer person in me was born.
It was brought to my attention by fellow poet
that I may have hurt someone, and didn't even know it.
Hoot Owl, to single you dear, I must appologize.
I've searched through and through all your poetry replies-
I don't know what it is exactly that may have caused you hurt,
but please know I would never say a thing to belittle your worth.
You all have lifted me when I felt 2 tons at least
was sitting on my shoulders and needed a release.
Family is what you all have easily become
and that is what I'll miss when this last poem is done.
Lost souls, Happy fools, and everyone inbetween.
My prayers be with you always, though my poetic words will be unseen.
Continue what you do so very selflessly
and make brighter someone's day when it is hard for them to see.
'Tis no better safe haven for those who need a friend,
than this poetry forum where friendship has no end.
God Bless...and I'll miss you each emensely.
I'll remember you all...please don't forget me.
