A Tear needs a Hug
~~~


The  summer  night
can  lose  it's  glitter
when  thoughts  no  longer  touch  the  sky
Earthbound  cares
can  turn  to  worries
when  partnered  with  a  weary  sigh
some  vain  repinings  from  our  storms
teach  us  to  stop
and  search  within
The  hearts  we  think  we've  lost  forever
are  merely
just  beneath
our  skin
~~~




 I'm not ugly!
I'm just visually challenged!

BEAUTIFUL thoughts here...lovely presentation as well,
very nice... the last lines are perfection..
take care, jm

 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...

I love the title..it drew me to this poem (and the fact that I have read a couple of other of yours..although this is sooooo different from THe REaper!! lol) Anyway the final lines
The  hearts  we  think  we've  lost  forever are  merely just  beneath our  skin
are what does it for me!!

So true...love may be gone but some people are always there , still inside us

bodies."

Rex~
Truly a flickering reflection
of the fine caring poet I've come
to know in you.
So nice.

You wonderful people ... I've been busy all weekend and now just got here to check on things ... to find this many wonderful replies to my poem was totaly unexpected ... I'm at a loss for words ... It would take me an hour or more to respond to you all individualy ... and you all deserve my heartfelt thanks
I wrote this feeling sorry for myself at the loss of my first wife ... along with another verse ... it was meant for her ... but never delivered ... just as well though I'm much happier now with my true love and family

Thanks again
