Linda Ori Poems
' How Do I Reach You?
If I could put it into words - All that my heart is feeling, Would they help to warm your heart Or would they send you reeling?
There are consequences to everything Intentions have their purpose - So don't deny Or justify -
! Do You Ever Wonder..................
Do you ever wonder............... Why lives intersect, React to one another - What makes our hearts connect?
! A Light In The Darkness
In the darkness of your thoughts Created by circumstances Both complex and overwhelming, When no amount of spirits
' One Bright Star
One bright star in the vast unknown A blazing ember in the night sky shone Reminding me that I'm not alone............... One bright star;
There was a little fairy Sat beneath a tree - Humming to her tiny self A haunting melody;
' Lean On Me
Sure, you're tough and resilient - able to keep your feelings under control, when everyone around you
Football! ! !
Football is my favorite game I love to watch them play - Those tightly muscled butts and legs On an awesome autumn day;
! I'Ll Carry You With Me !
I'll carry you with me here in my heart From now 'til forever, we never will part, Though all that we hoped for is now in the past, Your memory lingers -the mold has been cast;
You alone reveal my soul, The intimacy of my deepest thoughts Wrapped around each emotion, Each beat of my heart;
Alone in the velvet darkness, a soul dwells in ignorance
Baby, sweet baby, with tears in your eyes Rest your head gently, there's no need to cry, Come let me sing you a soft lullaby The sandman is coming and dreamland is nigh;
Sad Green Eyes
You look at me with sad green eyes, I'm overcome with feeling- Such deep emotion they disguise, Yet send my senses reeling; They speak to me of loneliness
! The Frog Prince
As I was walking through the wood One warm and sunny summer day, I chanced upon a lovely sight A swirl of butterflies in flight;
You wander through my dreams -
A ghost of a thought drifting in and out
Coloring my sleep with sunshine and shadow,
You fill my unconscious mind -
Every waking hour, every word I speak,
Every step I take is guided by your hand;
You're never far from me -
A memory creeps in and silently slips away
Taking my spirit along to a place in my dreams;
