David Harris

Veteran Poet - 1,237 Points (18 June 1945 / Bradfield, England)

Calm Waters

We set out on life’s ocean
filled with turbulent waves,
often looking for calmer waters
in which to stay and bathe.
We seek to find happiness
all of us want to find.
Some times, we find a friend,
who will take us by the hand,
leading us to those calm waters
we were looking for.

    This is a most endearing poem written for another man who is special like you are. I hope you are healing well David. I've been on a trip for a couple weeks so haven't been able to read. Lots of catching up to do but I have a guest up from Greenwich now so I'll read later tonight. love, marci..xo (Report) Reply
