If I were truly a poet ... I'd find the perfect words to say ...
the perfect words to tell you ... to take all the pain and fears away.
But my words alone could never be enough ... for they could never do you justice,
I wish for a word for each tear that falls ... words of healing poetry entrusts us.

Something's cant be put into words ... some emotions cant be captured in rhyme,
Still I wish to try to convey ... you have a place here in our hearts for all time.
I am a better poet and person ... for having known your touch ...
you have been a lesson in strength ... we all admire and adore you so much.

So many times now ... your words have touched our hearts,
your poetry and wisdom engraved in gold ... etched in time ever to impart.
When I see your light ... I am reminded of the phrase "grace under pressure"
You are our angel of poetry ... you are a gift we will forever treasure.

Janet Marie




Some things cannot be explained by verses that rhyme,
They are not measured by the commitment of time.
Some emotions run too deep to be described by words,
Forgiveness and understanding ...
remain the most beautiful words ever heard.

Janet Marie
11/14/99



Sprayed across my heart and hers
Danced butterflies in the wild
This angel, this woman ,
who loves me with the innocence of a child.

Janet: I wanted to write something for Liz also, but nothing could say more than yours did.  I just found out about this, and have been praying for her during this time and wishing her peace.


What is that you express in your eyes? It seems to me more than all the words I have read in my life.

Janet, this is the most touching poem i have read from you so far....even though you say you hesitate as to the choice of the right words to say, me think you have expressed those impossible-to describe feelings very well indeed

Janet,

you say you're not a poet...you lie
when things get tough you goit ...you try
commpassion here for Liz revealed
by this write prowess is sealed
and prayers for you and Liz both are winging toward the sky.

Be well and write on

Janet Marie: Thank you for a beautiful poem. You've said what so many of us wish to say and said it eloquently. *S* Elizabeth's poetry would be stunning under any circumstance... but when I think that she started writing such a little time ago and creates such treasures under such terrible pressure, I'm amazed and humbled... and so very appreciative that her talent graces our forums and her friendship warms our hearts. *S* (And yes... much of that describes you, too. *S*)

Janet Marie,

Your words have touched my heart
In ways I can't explain
It's as though the wings of love
Have come to take the pain

They do uplift my soul
And comfort my unrest
As day by day I strive
To cope with sorrow's stress

Wrapped in blanket's warmth
A quilt of cherished threads
I feel the warmth and care
Each square a poet friend

Thank you, my sweet poet
For words that you impart
THe quilt of friendship's love
Will remain within my heart

THank you friends of passion
You give a priceless gift
Kind words in time of need
My weary heart uplift

THank you, Janet Marie
Thank you , poet friends
LOve
Liz

Dear Lizzie...thank you so much for the beautiful love filled verse...let all these replies hold you and show you how cherished you are here...and I know you already know== we wish we could do more than write poetry..
and pray...
If we could, we would each cry a tear for you to share and lessen the pain...
BUT as a very wise Whitedove once said on
another prayer post in here...
Praying is not "all" we can do it is the MOST we can do.
(see Dovey...we were listening) *smile*

THANK YOU ALL for the wonderful replies to this and for your words of support for Liz..
that is what I wish this post to be about...
a place to share her grace.
thank you to Sunshine for the "angel bumps"  
love to all
JM

JM,

Wonderfully said.  May God watch over Liz during her time of need.
