Thanks, everyone, for the responses.
Two nods from Seniors and one from an Emeritus... I'm very flattered.
BTW, thanks for the email Poet!
To be honest, I haven't written in a few years. Kind of lost touch, I guess. The real reasons for my entry are:
1) Leanne, my friend, who has given me a new outlook on life and is the person for whom this poem was penned
and 2) The poetry that I have read here in the past few days; incredible. It has awoken something inside me.
So thank you again, as I was not sure how, or if, this would be accepted.
You make a person feel very welcome here. I am looking forward to reading and, if warranted, posting more poetry in Passions.
I have been to see the world. Tasted life at every turn.
And all the time your face came back to haunt me.
