EVER REACHING



  To lose all control

  To feel your very soul

  To share the closeness we both crave so

  To soar higher than others can go

  This is the love I want to...

THE TREEHOUSE

I finally agreed when he turned eight
To build his ' Castle in the sky'
With wooden steps nailed up the side
Just so he could climb that high.

Four walls, about six feet tall
Although not exactly square
And little windows on every side
So...

Hope Floats (Hurricane Katrina)

They came from every walk of life
Some traveling over many miles

Their only want, to ease the pain
And replace our frowns with smiles.

Giving up all the comforts of home
They took up our struggles to share

Never have I seen such...

Thimbles and Fairies

I lived life moment to moment
At times that distance seems so far
Yet it went by in the blink of an eye
A roller-coaster ride on a shooting star.

But this Peter Pan inside of me
Tells me adventure is still at hand
After all, I'm just a lost...

Raising Puppies

The doctors said he couldn't live
Just two years, that's all they'd give
Cancer soon would eat his little bones away.

He didn't cry when he lost his hair
But wore that stocking cap everywhere
And only took it off to sleep and pray.

I...

TY nikkib for your praise of my words. This was not myself and my son. I just thought of this one day and wrote it down. I changed words here and there till eventually it worked, sounded and felt the wayI wanted it to. Isn't that what poetry is all about?.........

I found this to be a very good poem AFTER I read it the 2nd and 3rd time, ignoring the punctuation. All the commas actually distract from the point being made and interrupts the flow and rythem of the poem...The versus were excellent...

They came from every walk of life
Some traveling over many miles

Their only want, to ease the pain
And replace our frowns with smiles.

Giving up all the comforts of home
They took up our struggles to share

Never have I seen such compassion
Nor ever have I felt such care.

Sympathetic ears, reliving the terror
Of what so many had gone through

They faced discouragement and distrust
Yet their faith and love held true.

Not only those who came to serve
Lifting our spirits with their charms

But every city in the United States
Who welcomed us with open arms.

Slowly those dark clouds in our lives
Parted to let the new hope in

Slowly our frowns turned around
And we met them, grin for grin...
