A piece of Art

A piece of art is what I see
Where would I be without thee
I could reveal how much I love
I could whisper you are my Dove
But what would I be
If I do that to thee

A piece of art is what I see
What would I be without thee
I could say I do not feel
I could say that this is not real
But where would I be
If I do that to thee

A piece of art is what I see
And wonder If she understands me


A piece of art is what I see
A friend I always will be
I say…you need me, I am there
I say…you call, I come running from anywhere
That what I will be
A friend that will be true for thee


I'm very sorry that my time is limited. I hope you all will forgive me. Working way too much and miss you all so terrible

Lovely friendship words, Helmut.  Liked the thought of a piece of art, since you are such a great artist.  I have missed seeing your poetry and your sweet replies.

We miss ya too, Helmut.  But don't spend too much time away - I'll come looking for you!!!
Love the poem, I don't know if it's how you intended it but this makes me think of how we percieve others we "love".  Are they trophies?  Something we just add to our "art" collection?  Do we really ever hear them?

Helmut ... you sure know how to capture a reader ... you've created a work of art about a work of art and I can't help but think that she'll understand you

Thank you all for your beautiful replies
Michael No there not trophies. What I meant to say by using the word Art is:
That the person is very special. One you love and cherish for just what they are and not what you want them to be.
Like I cherish your friendship

Helmut, assuming that you are not referring to Linkletter or Carney, this is an excellent poem!   Good to see you around.

Thank you My Lady, I can only say so are you.

Poet deVine
There are some special pieces of art and your one of them, not to minimize the value of others. Everyone of you is special in his/her own way to me.

WhtDove
Thank you so much, You touched my heart. I will do the best I can.

Balladeer
Thank you Sir, you also have a very special corner in my heart. And sorry for asking but who is Linkletter and Carney?
