A poem from Butterflies_dont_cry sparked a memory ...
dug this up from the dust bunnies ... seems kind of lame to me now ... but here it is anyway

Our  Blue  Lagoon
~~~


We  can  search  the  sky  forever
even  turn  up  every  rock
We  can  beat  the  bushes  to  a  pulp
... true  love  will  never  dock ...
~
We  have  to  learn  to  love  ourselves
not  write  it  in  the  sky
We  have  to  find  a  simple  way
... to  shine  it  in  their  eye ...
~
Once  we  learn  to  love  ourselves
our  spirit  proud  and  free
Then  we'll  have  a  Blue  Lagoon
... to  coax  our  ship  from  sea ...
~~~


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

Hi REX ALLEN,

I like it, nice way to explain that in order to love others you have to love your self. And the prize a blue lagoon.

Rex, this poem is so very tender...I love it. You should search through your dust bunnies more often.

Cerenity ... Yhankyou for the kind words
Corinne ... thankyou
Claire ... I guess I should ... I could revise some of them a little

Denise ... thankyou for always reading my poems and you kind replies

tracie ... thankyou ... But I still don't think it's nearly as good as the poems that all you people write ... I usually just write comedy or sometimes a little on the dark side of reality

Rex~
With Easter coming ...
I think 'dust bunnies' are in !
I enjoy your comedy ...
but I really like it when you present
us with the more serious side of Rex.
I liked this very much.

rex, this is PERFECT!!!
not lame ...and it shows another side to you...its nice to see the tender loving side of one of our resident "comedians"
see, you made us smile in another way.
take care,jm

 she said I dont know if I've ever been good enough,
and I'm a little bit rusty, and I feel like my head is caving in.
...and I dont know if I've ever been really loved by a hand thats touched me...
and I feel like somethings gonna give...
and I'm a little bit angry.

Marge ... unique idea there ... dust bunnies on Easter ... the kids can collect them as they hunt for the eggs

Janet Marie, Lost Dreamer, hoot_owl ... you ladies are making me blush ... Thankyou
