I'Ve Lost It! - Poem by David Taylor

I wrote the most beautiful poem of hope
which flowed and ebbed in mysterious ways
that defied the dissection of minds
and weaved to the heart of mankind
in a way so gentle and kind that only goodness
was found in the words that it sung.
A poem of grace that eternally said
what mortals can only find when they're dead,
a vision of music only the heavens can make
with the wisdom of ages sung so true and so sweet,
they transported the soul to where no one could weep.
And I've lost it.

    Oh David, how beautifull, sorry you did lose it, however this is amazing how you can recall and RECAPTURE the feel....... That happened to me a few weeks ago, an inspiration I had been working on, and it came together and then click, it was gone, my computer shut down..... Now what I do, I am sure you do too and all out there, is, print a copy of the poem, then after I have accumulated some, I type them into my poetry file, but I save the printed one and transfer it to decorated paper for gifts, ect this way I am never lost with out my poetry... As recapturing the feel is the hard thing as you know as a writter..... Very good...

    Well if you lost it David, I am so sorry, but your rendition of it was a glorious one. A beautiful alternative. You are a good poet and there is nothing sadder than losing such a gift of a poem. I know a community that lost everything in one click. 20,000 writers infact lost that Catastrophic Tuesday and the pain of their loss is a terrible cry from their hearts. All we can do is keep writing and remember to back up. Smiling at you, Tai (Report)Reply
