It's been hard for me to find words of any description lately and now you come along with this and leave me speechless! Absolutely awesome write my friend!

Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets.  ~Arthur Miller

Ask the rhythmic rain ... how I call out your name
the sound so sweet in resonating sustain.
An emotional refuge ... in devotion's deluge
this love flows through me in reverberating refrain.

Ask the oceans blue ... how I dream of only you
waves of wonder wash over me.
Drawn to your depths ... tides that take away my breath
swept in surrender on seas of serenity.


You are my day's begin and end ...
my sun's descent ... my moon's ascend.
Without you the stars turn to dust and are just pretend.
You are my heart's healing amend ...
my inspire's intend ... my rhyme's transcend.


A transcending rhyme, so true, I have missed your beautiful poetry and your moody muse who is singing beautifully as ever.

Battle not with monsters lest ye become a monster, and if you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes also into you. - Friedrich W. Nietzsche

JM,
You know how deeply your writing touches my heart. And the wisdom you share has come from so much pain. But now...

Now I know that pain and it shocks me to know that your thoughts can mean even so much more to me than before.

How you move this sad, sad heart with such longing and undying need. Bless you dear friend, always.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

EagleScorpion ... thank you so much...your exhuberant reply made me smile, for its originality, enthusiasm and its sincerety ( I mean it)   Thank you kind poet sir...muchly.

Bri ... and I have missed you  .... more than you know.
Thank you for your heartfelt reply... its so good to see your name around here again.

Larry ... what can I say to you...you honor and humble me with your humility and generous spirit. I'd give one of my wishes that you wouldnt understand the pain.
Bless you for allowing my words to touch you...
somethings never leave us...but then somethings never should.

(Your signature is so poetically perfect)


thank you all 3 for sharing you with me

In the space between now and then
I lost the fire, lost a friend
and Ill never be the same again
Still, I believe in the innocence
we gave away.

I remembered this poem.... among all others here it is one of the few on the top of my thoughts and I needed to seek it out again and encourage you that if this particular poem did not make either of the first two books,  Please post it for the third. I will definately cast my vote for it... Looking forward to seeing the "stars" in Reflections.

Sherry

Cherish the good memories of the past and look forward to the adventure called Tomorrow. But above all... be kind to yourself today.

Thank you Sherry...this is very sweet of you and a wonderful compliment that you share in telling me this one stayed with you.
I am honored and humbled...thanks so much.
I'm still deciding which ones will be submitted..I have some special ones written recently that are near and dear to my heart, but they are on the long side...so this one may be a good back up...its a personal fave as well.
thanks again for the generosity.
