Please Understand Me

Please understand me, I don't need much,
a thoughtfull look, a pat a touch.

Money isn't the only and all of life,
lack or abundance can bring misery and strife.

But the warmth of your heart, is the all that I need.
It keeps me living and loving and desiring to breathe.

The last breath that I take, pray it's with you,
I'm forever indebted, our hearts beat true.

The Truth that I live, has you in in mind,
the Soul mate I'm searching, today I find.

The find that I make more precious than gold,
each day that passes more mysteries unfold.

And when these mysteries are brought into view,
appreciation abounds, for the love of you!

Your love is more than can be seen or felt,
I'm so very lucky, for the hand Gods dealt.

And given this new concept of Life,
The love you give, dissolves all frustration and strife!

    I read a heap of your poems. Are they all recent or have you been writing for a long time and storing them up? It would seem to me that you are currently on a journey of rediscovery of some sort. Or do the poems come through waht you see in life. Any way I like them as a whole. To me they give a sense of moving on - looking outward within. Staying yet leaving. (Report) Reply

    Having someone witness your life and share it with you, there is nothing better... I think we can all relate to this one. Love it (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
