Heather Burns


Alone


Shadows fade
night creeps in
darkness appears

alone

just a memory
remains.

    Shadows fade
    night creeps in.........Lovely poem....10

    I shall work hard
    Without waiting for word
    That is not my worry
    I shall simply carry

    Wait for second
    And think of water pond
    How many colorful fishes are there?
    Think of yourself as fortunate person here? (Report) Reply
