    The world tries to squash us into its mould
    warping our character as we grow old.
    Nibbling away over the passing years
    trying to make us assertive and fierce.
    I’m so glad that you have worked it all through
    and decided to stay as the “Lovely You”

    Valerie I have written the above 6 liner in response to your poem and would like permission to give reference to your poem when I put the 6 liner which I have called The Lovely You in my list of poems. If you are not happy with this then I will NOT include the reference.

Best Poem of Valerie Dohren

A Walk Through Paradise

I close my eyes to find a place
In different time and different space
And in imagination find
A cloistered arbour for my mind
Where thought may there be unconfined

Then in my dreams a path I take
As in a trance, yet wide awake,
To see the world with open eyes
Its glist`ning sands and azure skies -
I take a walk through Paradise

Suspended there reflecting deep
Where time is lost, immersed in sleep,
A sleep of ages long since passed
As on the sea of change were cast
All things which then were reckoned fast

Above all earthly cares to ...

Read the full of A Walk Through Paradise

I

Her breast was warm and tender was her face
Secure was I within her long embrace
Protected from the pain of human care
It seemed that I was ever part of her

But then I stirred awakened by the dawn
The time had come at last and I was born
The sun shone brighter than I`d seen before
I looked around and she was there no more
