Eyes that see through me
And hands of human clay
Ears that hold my plea
And mouth upon I pray
These are the things I entreat
Inside my mind, if not portray
        Iím waiting for the light to show
        Waiting, for the afterglow

Make me whole and entire
With warmth and arms around
Making our own little fire
Listen to the peaceful sound
This, my life, you inspire
For this, I wonít come back down
        Iím waiting for the love to grow
        Waiting, for the afterglow

Donít let me fall from so high
And only these things, bring
So that I forget how it was to cry
And the pendulum starts to swing
Look only into my colorless eyes
They only mean everything
        Iím waiting for time to overthrow
        Waiting, for the afterglow

they say timing is everything...and yours my poetic partner is impeccable...
how many times today can you take my words and breath away...lets see so far I count 3...  
but the day is still young *S*...
the beauty of these words leaves me in awe, in contentment, and in your debt...and most of all inspired...
thank you
stalking you always,
your jm



 and you can say baby...
baby can I hold you tonight
maybe if told you the right words...
at the right time,
you'd be mine...
baby can I hold you tonight...

Laughing...well, this one took me a while to catch on to...and I'm not talking about the poem. No wonder Janet Marie is so inspired
