    The beginning lines of the poem are so touching. Let me cite...
    Waiting to see your powerful presence,
    Smiling, satin blue eyes that wipe's clean away any lies,
    Truth flowing like a river with strong currents,
    Of desires divine, falling, sparkling with such might
    From this great height,
    The soft touch of the breeze is you,

    A beautiful poem brilliantly expressed.

    This 'Waiting' will ever be remembered by you and us Hazel. The equations of traits attributed to the awaited are enviably great. A good poem again transcending the usual preceding latest... (Report)Reply
