A List Of What To Expect


This is a list
Of what to expect
From me to you
With love and respect

I owe you an ear
Because you always pay attention
I owe you a shoulder
Because on yours lies my affection
I owe you a hand
You always help me out
I owe you advice
Of that there’s no doubt

I owe you respect
Of that you’re full
I owe you trust
With my secrets you are cool
I owe you knowledge
You have taught me so much
I owe you love
Deep in my heart, you’ve touched

I owe you a friend
Who is honest and true
I owe you my life
Because of what you still do

    I must say that you remind me so much of myself. I have read most of your poems and have truly appreciated that at least someone else in this world feels the same. You have inspired me to write more. Thank you so much for your poetry and may you continue with your gift.
    Best wishes!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
