You have done what nobody could have done for me this morning. You've inspired me to write a poem. And yes, your legacy will be passed on through your poetry to your son and his son. What beautiful thoughts you have expressed, and in addition,inspired a tired poet to write one more verse Thank you Liz
Dee, Thank you, dear friend...I find you the interesting one...the more and more I see of you, the more I like...take care.
Liz, To wake up this morning and find that my poem had inspired one of your own precious gifts to be written was a special treat...I've read your poem and never fail to be in awe of your wonderful talent. Thank you.
Poet deVine, I'm also amazed how words can often just be there when I sit down to write. Thank you and I hope your day is a good one.
Martie, It's always a great pleasure to see you reply to something I've written...thank you.

I feel that no man can express himself better, or more honestly, than he is able to through writing. It shows not only your broad character, but your small points as well. Thank you for your explanation, and for allowing me to ponder my own reasons. Great poem, great thoughts.
There are thoughts which are prayers. There are moments when, whatever the posture of the body, the soul is on its knees.
Michael, this well strung together poem is indeed a legacy for your son but also a blessing for those who travel life's journey with you, through your poetry. Thank you for posting an honest and lovely piece.
Your friend Kethry.

all you've said - every word - were I to write 'why I write' would be there yet a bit more - I suspect my son and my daughter may be shocked by my passion - they may wonder to whom I wrote - they will know before I'm through - I hope = Thank you for this
