So nice of you to say..
,
it is true and very understandable that
everyone has different tastes;
I think it's down to the fact we all express ourselves
individually.
THANKS again.
Grace, I know you poems come from the Heart...The BEST!!!

A REASON

The perpetual wait until a next day,a burning cinder a never ending hope
we are easily lost in a spiral of gloom or doom if we choose to wait in an empty room.
A glimmer of light can shine through a granite wall if we allow a tiny crack
A hidden rainbow can bring about hope,the beauty of life can be so blind.

We only take notice to the burning & the bleeding.so quick to react
Passing by the others ,it is not noticed when the struggle or blight is internal
So many feel they could be heroes,or one will save them leaving them intact
we never stare at their despair ,such simple feelings can hide a huge fact

When it's internal, casually hiding, maybe just laying in wait, never noticing normal
We may never ever fear until it's to late,sometimes more than beauty is laid on our plate.
Broken souls, feeling thrown about ,never knowing,rude & crude not being formal
Our eclipse or the dawn, that bright light, will the mind be at ease when it meets it's fate.

Those souls we meet everyday, do we ever notice whats happening inside
Do they even know they teeter on edge, walking such a thin line
We often never confess from fear or maybe losing our pride.
An exterior upright & groomed ,the skin hiding thoughts known only as mine Rick

Can't recall if I posted this or not. Thanks. Rick

What does a blond and a beer bottle have in common?

They're both empty from the neck up.

Goodbye my friend it's hard to die
When all the birds are singing in the sky
Now that spring is in the air
Pretty girls are everywhere
Think of me and I'll be there

Now have you got yourself a brand new baby, don't tell me maybe.
Is it so, I got to know? What's it gonna be? Him or me?
Him or me? Him or me? Him or me?
I can still recall when you told me I was all.
Every thing you looked for in a man.
But I know that it's not true, I've seen the way he looks at you,
And I think you're gonna hang me up again,

They ain't movie quotes,...

- Blow, Blow, Thou Winter Wind -

***

"Blow, blow, thou winter wind
Thou art not so unkind
As man's ingratitude;
Thy tooth is not so keen,
Because thou art not seen,
Although thy breath be rude.

Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly:
Most freindship if feigning, most loving mere folly:
Then heigh-ho, the holly!
This life is most jolly.

Freeze, freeze thou bitter sky,
That does not bite so nigh
As benefits forgot:
Though thou the waters warp,
Thy sting is not so sharp
As a friend remembered not.
Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly:
Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly:
Then heigh-ho, the holly!

This life is most jolly."
