'Heart Prints'

I went to the cemetery to visit my dear friend
She passed away some time ago.
I knelt to share some things with her
I thought she just had to know.

This was the first time I had visited her
and on her headstone were words carved deep.
'Glad to see you dropped on by to visit
Thank you for your heart print that you weep.'

I never knew she could ever feel this way
To have had someone place this message on her stone.
But she was the dearest of friend I ever had
And I always felt with her right at home.

As I left her grave side after sharing
The deepest of feelings from my heart.
I lmade sure to leave my heart print with her that day
And will take a new little piece of her's as I part.

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
