Some People - Poem by Linda Ori

Some people never leave your heart
Although they leave your door -
They linger in the loving part
And touch you to the core;

You only have to reach inside
To find their spirit's light -
For deep within they still abide
Although they're out of sight;

Don't cry for kisses never tasted
Treasure those you've had -
Time spent in love is never wasted
Cherish and be glad;

For loved ones gone are still a part
Of everything we do -
They leave their memories in our heart
And touch our spirits, too.

    Ten for structure, ten for the expert rhyme and ten for the sentiment. Well I guess I owe you thirty, but even using Reece Kay's vote the best I can do is 20.

    Yes... both a hard truth and a happy one, in a flowing, soothing, well structured nutshell. Optimistic and embracing of the past rather than rejecting... a lesson, here. t x (Report)Reply
