Your Words

When I feel like I’m drowning, your words keep me afloat.
Of your words, in my mind, I have etched a mental note.
Any time that I’m feeling low and really down,
Through my mind, your words tumble around.

Your welcome words of praise, linger in the air,
And, on a printed page, they are written there.
Your words, I have heard, and I can now see,
But, surely, these words do not describe me?

Even if, at everything else in life, I fail,
I seem to have one skill at which I prevail.
My new passion in life has come as quite a surprise,
And reading your comments, I couldn’t believe my eyes.

Your words give me a sense of hope in my heart;
When feelings of despair and deep depression start.
Your words help to hold my head above the water,
When, my normally good mood begins to falter.

With me, for the rest of my life, your wise words will remain.
When I’ve felt myself falling, your words have kept me sane.
Our two paths only crossed for the very briefest of times,
But, out of the doldrums, your words have helped me climb.

That you made such an impact, you’re probably unaware,
But your words have helped make my life easier to bear.
You’ve shown me that, amazing things, I can now achieve,
If only, in myself and my abilities, I choose to believe.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
