Rope - Poem by Lyn Paul

For some unknown reason I cannot read any of your words
It takes me 30 minutes its annoying and absurd
I can check out my inbox and send a reply
But as for writing comments I do not understand why

So I just want to say to Midnight, young Soul, Val, Valsa, David W, Shahzia and so many more
Especially you incredible readers that read for pleasure and to explore
Thank you for reading it gives me great hope
Maybe my words mean something as I have so much rope
Rope to reach out to many in need - That rope to throw to others when.... struggling to cope

That rope is not just for skipping its for making us all hold on
for life... Even when things aren't quite right
It's for supporting those in need to make them see the light.

So if you share this rope your hands will not burn
They will feel such warmth and your heart will learn
Learn to love and care... and to give to all
To support and catch anyone, ... anyone who may fall

If you see the rope reach for it - you may really help someone in need.
Without Midnights Voice and Valerie, I would have given up poeming long ago.

    It's a delight and honour to see my name (being a learner) among the great poets who read for pleasure and to explore, i am that lucky person who finds a fine read always, and it's a phase that will pass, and the battery will be recharged before you know it...thank you so much Lyn Paul! ! !

    Message received Lyn, and it has always been my pleasure to read and comment on your work.. We have all been frustrated lately with how the site is behaving, so don't despair - we will all reach out for and hold onto your rope. Oh, and NEVER GIVE UP WRITING Lyn. Your work portrays a very loving and caring lady - keep it up! !
