I was drifting along
on the currents of a misdirected breeze
following a daydream with inward turned eyes
with the softly warm daylight passing me by
I never knew where I should be

Amidst my careless path
there you stood as I started to pass
and you saw in my that which I would not
drawing me in an silken gossamer strands
bringing me into the fold of your love

There came a purpose
I saw myself beside you, no longer drifting
With the softness of you touch, your eyes
you showed me that I was important
that I was worth being loved

Within myself, there something stirred
a realization of what you percieved
the strength imbued by your attentions
made me learn to trust in another
as we blended into one

Lost I came to you
lost is where I would have remained
but within our love I've found myself
and now that we are together
we will never be lost again

 A real man
kisses his children goodnight

I know a little something about those misdirected breezes. Excellent poetry, James, and a fine tribute to a special person.

Thank you all for your responses

Shelley - that's the way it often happens eh?

Nan- my wife cried for half an hour after reading it-guess she liked it

Martie- we write the best on what we feel

Balladeer- it is funny how lost you can feel and she is fitting of any tribute I can pay her

Denise- as always I am glad you liked it

Poet DeVine- love is an easy topic for me

Amy thanks for your comments on the style and for your warm reply- I wish the same for everyone here

James, A wonderful tribute!               There came a purpose
I saw myself beside you, no longer drifting
With the softness of you touch, your eyes
you showed me that I was important
that I was worth being loved

Just beautiful  *sigh*  Good job James.

James~
No wonder she cried!
It is simply beautiful.

'you showed me that I was important
that I was worth being loved'

What a difference we see in ourselves when we look through someone else's eyes.
