Linda Ori Poems
! Do You Ever Wonder..................
Do you ever wonder............... Why lives intersect, React to one another - What makes our hearts connect?
' 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 -
! 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
! 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
Let me be your comfort Let me be your friend Let your worries flow through me Let your troubles end;
! 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;
! When All Is Said And Done !
Is this what life is all about? All there is to know... I can't believe I've come this far And still so far to go;
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;
I wonder if you understand
The power held within your hand
That burns into my very soul -
I wonder if you know..........
That I can see through your disguise
The fire burning in your eyes -
Reflections of your deepest thoughts -
I wonder if you know..........
