My dearest poets (a thank you)


If you could fall in love with words
I'd fall in love with you
all I ever wanted
is every thing you do
you bring me colors of the rainbow
as in word flowers
I could sit and listen to you
for hours and hours
take me places, I've never been
I am never bored
all of that and so much more
you are my reward
when sadness has me in its grips
you wrap your arms around
pull me oh so close to you
I am safe and sound
reach right past all my hurt
there you touch my heart
will always have you near to me
we shall never part
the world is such a sweeter place
since I have you
even the plain and simple
through your eyes look new
your always here to fill me up
even as empty as I can be
take my hand to lift me up
you set my spirit free
bring me shelter out of rain
take me home
ease my pain
taste my tears
stir my passion
and all of this
with the words you fashion
yes its true
you calm my soul
even remind me
when I'm out of control
your forgiving, wise
without thought of gender
you make me so happy
I awe in all your splendor
you may think me foolish
yes that could be true
but if i could fall in love with words
I'd fall in love with you

This poem is inspired by all of you..........thank you Helen

Helen,
And thank you for this loving comfort, extended to all.  A soothing read and you've said it so well.
Like a warm blanket on a chilly day . . .

This brings back the memory of when I first found this place (with special thanx to rich)--mind if I share?

"I read every word
searching
for pieces of me
in the manner
of an orphaned child
scanning faces in the crowd
looking for the eyes like mine
and a grin,
slightly bent..."

Smiles and hugs, and welcome home, Helen.

This is a wonderful poem. Its sweet to let everyone know once in a while how much you appreciate their words. I, for one, enjoy the work I have read by you so far.   If it hasn't been much, just give me time.

Can I be your willful breeze,
Come to touch,
Your heart to ease?

Your (thank you poem) is an insperation to all poets and amateurs alike. Like your lines say.

" I could sit and listen to you
  for hours and hours
  take me places, I've never been"

I've done that in here, and never leave this place without having visited a place that i've never been to before.

Your welcome   Amature2

The words you share with us I am sure are the way most of us feel.  It is a blessing indeed to be able to come here and find the happiness and the beauty that poetry can bring and even share in the sorrows and the pains among friends that care and understand.  I applaud you firstly on the poem and the sentiment and secondly...thank you for sharing it with us.

If you find yourself stranded in a storm
...then reach for my hand and we will play in the puddles together
