Because Of You - Poem by Linda Ori

You brought your light into my world
When life was cold and gray,
You taught me how to change my tune
From sad to light and gay;

I never in my wildest dreams
Expected such as you,
Just goes to show you never know
What little prayers can do!

If I had put my order in
You couldn't have been better -
Whatever I was looking for
You gave me to the letter;

People come and people go
They touch us in some way -
And then the person that we were
Starts changing day by day;

My life is not the same today
No longer sad and blue -
My sun is shining brightly now
And all because of you!

    'You taught me how to change my tune
    From sad to light and gay '

    Your fantastic poem made me speechless. It says it all, therefore needs no credit.
    BTW the title reminded me of kelly clarkson's A-1 song 'because of you', a great association.

    This is so strong....... I loved the lines....

    People come and people go
    They touch us in some way -
    And then the person that we were
    Starts changing day by day; .........

    You are truly talented as a poet!

    When you feel something strongly enough, you have no trouble laying it out on paper. Bravo Linda,

    This is clear evidence that a poem doesn't have to be obscure, devoid of rhyme, or in blank or free verse, or several of these things (and I should listen to myself!) to be highly potent, effective and very moving. Fine, professional craft on display. Excellent writing and equivalent sentiments! ! xxx jim (Report)Reply

    It does a world of good to know that one can effect anothers life in this way,
    And yet, like the rippling effect, your writting has a way of touching as well.
    Well Done Linda Geoff

    Linda, wow, this is just so beautiful. To say that to anyone, all I can say they must be very special. I given it my 10 and I'm sure that a lot of others will too. It is so readable. I loved every word it said. I liked it that much I'm going to make it one of my favourites. Thanks so much for sharing it.
