! Unfinished Business - Poem by Linda Ori

If I should stay another day
I'd lose myself in you -
Not that that would be a crime
But I've got things to do;

Perhaps one day my life will change
My little tasks be done -
And then with freedom's blessing
I'll ride off to meet the sun;

And will you come to meet me there?
Or join me on my way -
Experience the journey
Hand in hand we'll run and play;

The future beckons brightly
Every day begins anew -
He went and saved the best for last.............
My life begins with you.

    again i like this one..

    you know why i like these poems best, cause these poems reflect what kind of sweet, darling person you are....
    people here say i m darling sweet person too.., but not many know how am i when i am angrymmmm....
    anyway writing poems always helps to let my emotions out and reading stuff like this can cleanse sore hearts too........

    with lots of love

    There is a bittersweet beauty in this, as there is in all of your recent writing, that goes straight to the heart... maybe we're at similar places - maybe you're younger than your age and I'm older than mine -.. I don't know.. but this touched me deeply.. there is a strong and positive air about the final verse, and yet there is something fragile, delicately balanced about the whole. I'm often reminded of Will Barber's style when I read your work... a poet who, who like yourself, has mastered the art of touching hearts deeply with deceptively simple looking poems. xxx (Report)Reply
