* I Leave My Heart With You * Poem by Sulaiman Mohd Yusof

* I Leave My Heart With You *

Rating: 4.3

I met a friend
She dreams
about the summer
The flowers are on the table
she’ll sing,
like Luciano Pavarotti
Without an audience

Her finial
Would be filled
With dithyramb.........
And phylactery

* To Anna, who died of AIDS in Hoboken, New Jersey.
Bruce Springsteen, 'The Boss' wrote Streets of Philadelphia to raise our awareness to Aids...please give generously to help stop Aids.
Listen to the song on You Tube ' Streets of Philadelphia '.

That was a Very, Very, poignant poem... Tear-inducing (but in a Good Way) ... When I got to read the notes at the end... it touched my heart to know, this was living poetry... Thank You for Welcoming me to the Hunter... Very Nice Poem MoonBee
