The Forever Of You - Poem by Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

The forever of you
Is in between all I do...
In a passing field of flowers
In the morning sky,
You are to me, a soft
Enchanting lullaby.
You are ever in my thoughts;
Oh! the clamor that invades
The empty spaces
When we are apart.

    Young Lady, I do believe this site has chosen a most polished and eloquent poem to begin this early Sunday morning in April...I'm back here on PH...PF really became a FREAK SHOW...of the 3rd Kind! ! ! I can't operate under such an infantile & counter productive environment...Besides, all, or the mass majority of our Inner Circle is long gone, probably for the same reason as I boogied....Hope all is well in your world missy! Keep in touch, and while you're at it...consider a move over here...Your skills & contributions are sorely needed & will be surely welcome...Frank (Report)Reply
