    Big hugs my friend! So sorry for your loss of a great friend. I love the last line, “...I have loved you more than words could ever depict.”

      Chartreuse? No, no! Shazam! No, that's not it. Shakira??? No, no, don't tell me. Sharona!?!? No, wait! Charmane! That's it! I mean it's been so long, I nearly forgot your nameski. *hands on hips* I do not like you having this whole other life going on when I'm here writing some pretty just above average junk. I'm gonna need you to tell your husband and kids that your friend Steve's poetry hand has been feeling very neglected and will therefore require some immediate intensive ego stroking to keep it from going back on the bottle. Is that what you want, Miss?

      lol, for some weird reason, I stopped getting notifications when someone posted a new poem.
      So sorry, my friend. I can’t get my mind to write again. It’s too heavy! Please message me if you drop some “pretty average” poems, because I’d love to read them.

      It's okay if you need a mental break from writing. Believe me I'll write for weeks to months then take months to years off. Life gets in the way at times and we can also lose incentive. I hope you don't mind me joking. :-)

    Also, ladies, please ignore the descriptions in some of these contest entries as I will often change poems several times before the contests, but the descriptions for the originals apparently stay the same.

    So many good lines. This poem is amazing. Beautiful, it gives me goose bumps every time I read it.

      Leslie was one of my all-time favorite people. I've known very few like her. She used to tell me I was one in a million because I'd send her flowers, gifts, etc out of the blue to let her know she was loved and always on my mind. Shame I only allowed myself to be her friend because she was everything I ever dreamed of in a woman. I talk to her very often still and shed tears of the thought that she's gone. I truly hope there is an afterlife because I will seek her out if possible. Thank you, K, for being much like Leslie.

      I absolutely believe the people we love are still around and watch over us. I love that you talk to her. I do hope that you are reunited. Maybe you will be together in the next lifetime. What a beautiful tribute to her. I'm completely honored to be anything like her.
