The Forever Of You

The forever of you
Is in between all I do...
In a passing field of flowers
In the morning sky,

I Sing A Sad Song

I sing a sad song for the cold, lonely
Moments no one will admit to aloud.

I sing a sad song for all of the broken

These hands hold small bowls
Of muted laughter
Rising with soft edges
Against the sky

Once upon a time
Once upon a dream
Once upon a heart break
Once uppon a tear

I read your book 'People Talk' and finding it again I make note here of what was said of you at that time and I want to say you have only gotten better. 'Mrs. Alves is a versatile and spontaneous writer, which gives her work universal appeal' Dorothy's poetry is important, I believe, because it deals with real people and describes real situations with much warmth and sincerity. 'Dorothy's poems are sensitive insights into the soul.' I salute you for still sharing your gift.

Ms. Holmes: You have a startling, and extremely versatile voice, with a range that goes from sensuous to sad and back in about 6.5 seconds. Thank you for sharing. -G
