Note: This is the first poem I ever wrote and it was inspired by the woman I love as has been every other work I have done. I love you Erin.


For My Love

  Wordsworth wrote of daffodils    
While Kilmer wrote of trees..
And Poe wrote of his Annabel
He lost into the seas

Their lives were touched, inspired and moved,
By beauties pure and real.
Their writings stand a legacy,
So others too may feel

The joy that filled their very souls
And caused their hearts to soar
On days when lifeís cruel drudgeries
Could make a rich soul poor.

Thou envy once did settle in
While reading words so fair,
To think of those so blessed by God
With passions ever rare.

My life while full was missing still
The love of someone kind.
That sweet unselfish special love,
One always hopes to find.

But Godís blessed me as He did they,
That wrote of beauties past.
With you who fills my heart with joy
And brings it peace at last.

For oft when skies are damp and cold
And seem the darkest blue,
I simply seek a quiet place,
And dream sweet thoughts of you.

Erin,
  To proclaim to all and any who chance this way, I adore you. You are the only reason I write. To have found a creative way to express myself is the greatest gift anyone ever bestowed on me and I am eternally grateful.

David, this is superb!  It is very obvious that, having found your Erin, you no longer need be envious of the great poets.  You have such a wonderful heart, and it speaks so well through your poetry!  Thank you for sharing this jewel with us!

*SIGH*

(me thinks a whole bunch of lady poets are wishing their name was Erin about now)  
perfect poem David...and MOST impressive that this was your first effort...
the use of the classic poets was creative and imaginative.
very nice...(even if ya did spell my name wrong)LOL
KIDDING--JUST KIDDING!! *smile*

 It's amazing
How you make your face just like a wall
How you take your heart and turn it off
How I turn my head and you lose it all ...
And it's unnerving
How one move just puts me by myself
There you go just trusting someone else
Now I know I put us both through hell ...
I'm not sayin
That there was nothing wrong
I just didn't think you'd ever get tired of me
And I'm not sayin
We ever had the right to hold on
I just didn't wanna let you get away from me.

Breathtakinly beautiful...You and Erin are two very fortunate people to have each other in your lives.  Well done!!

~Kelly


 Reflect upon your present blessings-of which every man has many-not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some. ~Charles Dickens

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. ~Winston Churchill
