Edwina Reizer Poems

I wonder as I look around
at all the beauty that I've found.
I've found it in the smallest places.
I've found it in the smiles on faces.
...

A family is love
That puts itself above
Everything else in this world.
...

How can I know what I can't see?
It's never been a part of me.

How can I know what I can't hear?
...

When I see a tree cut down
whose life was not yet done
I look upon it with a frown
and then look at the sun.
...

When the lion roars and makes himself heard
all in the jungle shall listen
As he stalks his prey from hunger he feels
on his face his eyes do glisten.
...

Amelia, Amelia where did you go?
They’ve searched and searched
but still we don’t know.
Oh the courage to fly in the air
...

Liar, liar we see the fire
coming from your mouth each day.
The fire that burns the truth
as we struggle along our way,
...

The frightened ballerina,
standing on her toes
stood behind the curtain
in a dainty pose.
...

Sunshine, you're my sunshine
and without you nothing's right.
You warm me like the sunshine
when I see you in my sight.
...

You want to have fear?
Listen to what you hear
emanating on sound waves
approaching your ear.
...

A book unopened
leaves words to die.
A book unopened
leaves words to lie
...

Some drink to take away pain.
Some eat and try to forget.
Some think and try to just stay sane.
Some cry big tears so wet.
...

13.

Why is it that man looks great
even with a bald pate?
And a woman’s crowning glory
usually has an early date
...

America, my America land of liberty,
what can you say has happened to thee?
Can you still say with pride
just how you feel?
...

Have we lost our sense of humor?
We must laugh on every day.
For without laughter life is dull
Like a stage without a play.
...

No one can see into my dreams
and so they're mine alone.
I travel places and meet old friends
and some I've never known.
...

Peace, please come to me.
I am the earth,
the land and the sea.
I'm home to the animals
...

If only we could keep
those moments from slippin' away,
grab hold of them and cherish them
and try to make them stay.
...

Great man of your time,
poet of verse and poet of rhyme
you let the white man know
how easy it is to let go
...

Just the two of us
making memories all our own,
Just the two of us
have memories that have grown
...

The Best Poem Of Edwina Reizer

Beauty Of Life

I wonder as I look around
at all the beauty that I've found.
I've found it in the smallest places.
I've found it in the smiles on faces.
I've found it in majestic sights.
I've found it in an eagle's flights.
And as I've seen it with my eyes
I've slowly come to realize
that all the beauty that I see
belongs to you and belongs to me.

This beauty should be shared by all.
Each beating heart should never fall
Quiet, never to beat again
without the memory of where or when
it captured the sights it got to see.
For what is life?
What can it be?
If not for beauty that's all around
you have not seen, nor have you found
what it is we came here for.
You came to know beauty, nothing more.
