Have I Thanked You Yet Today?

I wonder if I've thanked you yet,
   For thoughtfulness you've shown?
I took the day off here today,
   So I could be alone.

I wanted to be sorry,
   For myself, and run and hide
But in these rooms I've found
   Such warmth and comfort by my side.

I've only been around this
   Group of people a short while,
And yet you open up your hearts,
   And touch me with a smile.
  
It seems the more I read amongst
   The talent found within,
These walls of sheer technology,
    I've found such golden "pens".

It's quite addictive, I have found
   To while away some time
And read with rapt attention
   All your lovely flowing lines.

I find it hard to stay on top
   Of each and every poem,
For I have not a lot of time
   To spend inside this home.

But since I'm playing hooky
   And today I have the time,
I'd like to take a moment
   Just to send you each this rhyme.

So if I haven't thanked you
   For the thoughtfulness you've shown,
Please take this heartfelt message
   For I feel, I'm not alone.

Kit, this is wonderful...
I know exactly how you feel...
since finding this magic place I too
feel like I was given a gift...
the bonds here are so very special and each day the inspiration found is priceless.
So glad you joined in.
take care, jm

You have given me a smile
making all my tears worthwhile,
for showing gratitude for such a place,
yes, a smile sits here upon my face.

When you feel the currents in this home,
and know it can be your very own,
your pen pushes ink out of its tip,
the words rush from your moving lips...

the true poet speaks from his heart...
Thank God we have Ron, and his art!

~~~

Well done, Kit!  Again, Welcome to Passions!

I thank thee, for all thy thanks,
Thou expresseth gratitude, for us,
Thats a sheer force of nature,
The way thou sayeth, says it all...

It is gratifying to read this one, Kit.

kit--

this was simply beautiful hon. i feel exactly the same way you do. i feel as though i have been lifted out of a fog and that i have finally found and met people who know what i'm going through and really care. funny how people on this "machine" sometimes show us more compassion and understanding than those people in our "real" lives do. at any rate i'm also very grateful and happy that i found passions. and i'm happy that you joined our family.

love,
amy

Kit, I'm sure that if you asked 20 memebers, you'd get 20 different responses as to why this place is special to us. . . for me, it's opened my life to things that I would have never seen before. . .and given me a place to share things I've never shared before. . . and I wouldn't trade these people for the world. . . they mean a lot to me. . . and I'm so glad that you feel at home here. . . it's what we're trying to do. . .we like to call it, "The Family of Friends. . ." and that's exactly what it is. . .

Great poem!!

Kit,
I'm glad that Passions means so much to you. It means a lot to me too. Indeed, this is a "Family of Friends", as Sven said.

To everyone,

     I guess this is a good place to show my thanks to everybody here for being so accepting to everything I've posted and had to say. Thank you.

This poem is perfectly describing my favorite place in the world! I love Passions too...if I could spend all day every day here I would. Believe me I would!

Love and hugs,
Lizzie

Very nicely put Kit.  I think you've expressed what everyone feels and wishes they had been able to say first.

And it really is additive, isn't it. The only time I've spent more time on the net was when  first got on it.  My wife claims to be a "passions widow".   I tell her there is just so much to read and think about...and I could be out at a bar or something...

Thanks again for expressing my thoughts...

Kit,
     Thank you, dear!  I must agree, this is a wonderful place to be, and there is nothing better than to have dear friends by your side.  But we are lucky to have you here, too!

Kit,
Words can't express how much I get from this place.   I haven't been a member long myself, but I'm wondering what I did before.  I love reading all the heartfelt poetry here, and finding how easy it is to relate to others.  Thanks for all your kind words about my poetry, and thanks for all yours.  You know, we owe you a big thanks too!

Kit~
Thank you for such a thoughtful post.
Passion's is such a warm and wonderful
place to 'hang our pens'.

I feel that the talent gathered in this place is so awesome that it is a sheer delight to be part of such a diverse family.

The circle of friendship is growing by the hands we grasp and being into the circle.
How we've grown in just the 6 months I've been here.  

You just know there's something right about this site ... to draw people together in love, friendship ... and our love for poetry.
Quite honestly, I feel we are very blessed.

Yeah ... I'd say you said 'Thank You' in a very nice way.  Thank you for being here.
I'm glad you 'played hookey'.
Love to you
~*Marge*~
