Poets of Passions
Both new and old
You welcomed in this troubador
And let his tale be told

You opened his eyes
To treasures unknown
Give him encouragement
And helped him to grow

He shared things with you
And sang you his songs
Showed you the power of love
Could right any wrong

Some of you have been blessed
By his simple words
The praises that you've shown
Are things he'd never had heard

Others of you he has welcomed
Into his life as friends
He hopes the friendships he's made here
Are ones that never end

So thank you Poets of Passions
Circle that never ends
May we continue to always be
That family of friends

My friends, when I first joined Passions, I never thought that I would reach this milestone.  I have all of you to thank for you help, your encouragement and most of all, your friendship and love.  I have indeed been blessed by you and by your words, you have spoken to my heart, made me laugh, made me think and made me cry.

It has been said that "No distance of place or space of time can lessen the friendship of those who are thoroughly persuaded of each others worth."  If that's true, then I am indeed the richest man in the world.

Thank you all my friends. . .

Sven

Sven

It seems like only yesterday
You joined the Passions crew
And I detected right away
A talent fresh and new

Once we understood the songs
Of swan and mourning dove (hehe)
You started writing verses
With romantic strains of love

And now you write with style and grace
Of almost anything
Your words are loved by many
And your verses sweetly sing

A thousand posts you mark today
I can't imagine this
But here's a thousand wishes
And I'll seal it with a kiss
             X
