“Write to be understood, speak to be heard, read to grow...”

You are the hope in the midst of our souls.

You are the faith that comes with high goals.

You are the meaning of ecstatic bliss.

You are the feeling of a loving mother's kiss.

You are the sensation of everlasting love.

You are angel sent down from above.

You are the wrapping of a wonderful gift.

When our lives are fading, to you we drift.

When nothing in our lives seems to go right,

You banish the night and replace it with light.

You are a field of roses in the prairies of life.

You are the redeemer when we suffer from strife.

You enter joyfully when displeasures depart.

You are the main element in what we call 'heart'.

You are our relaxation and to you we are loyal,

When the rest of the world is full of turmoil.

You are the emotion when we overcome our fear.

You are the reaction when it's praise that we hear.

You are the saviour when life takes its swipe.

When we are feeling blue, our tears you wipe.

But then again, what follows you is sorrow.

Whenever you leave, grief arrives on the morrow.

What I have always wanted to say, I'm saying today.

Even when misery hits, don't go too far away.

I love your work! It comes from the heart and you can see it shine through with the passion you put into it. It's personal and the rhymes are so perfect you have to wonder if you had to think to make it happen or if the rhymes simply poured out of you. Great job.

I appreciate your comment on my work too, I hope you'll try reading some of my poetry, "Take My Life" is probably my best one, I'm not too fond of the work you commented on but thank you sooo much for your honesty and your feedback, it means so much! =)
