She has looked at winds,
Winds that bring her peace,
That cover her face and break
The silent rages invoked.
She has looked at skies,
Deep with color and triumph,
That take her sight and renew
The final days of pain.
She has looked at hearts,
Filled with hope and peace,
That cover her trembling hands
Though far futures she cannot see.
She has looked at mirrors
And seen beauty beloved of this,
The strength she gathers
Is for all the world to see.
She has seen hope,
That touch that kisses the heart,
Saves souls drowning in pain
Keeping her love alive.

Welcome to Passions, Michael. This poem is beautifully descriptive.

I'm leaving the cat a note
Quick call me a ferry boat-getting out of town!

Welcome to Passions! This poem is
both brilliant and beautiful.
Excellent display of imagery. Look
forward to reading more of your
work. Take care.

"Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is before you can meet again. And meeting again after a moment or a lifetime is certain for those who are friends."

"Fate exists but it can only take you so far,
Because once you're there
It's up to you to make it happen."

I was digging thing up and I came across this. This is definitley on of my favorites. Reading this makes me remember......Your words are so full of imagery and raw emotion. Your style is so tender and caring. Purely Poetic.
Smiles for you
