    I just noticed the little rhythm dancing in your poem, like a reflection dances at the very tip of a wave. Very clever, my dear. I think you are quite filled up with poetry..(smile) (Report) Reply

    This keeps me wondering...keeps me thinking...keeps me remembering. Perhaps I should just write it out on a card and pin it above my desk. Thanks for sharing, Sonya. N (Report) Reply

    This is wonderful indeed..
    Nothing else matters, but love..
    Sometimes, people feel love alone is not enough..

    Yet I do agree it is the love that drives us forward, that keep us bound together...
    This is very nice.. good one to start the day..

    with lots of love

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