Knowing You’re In This World

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


Knowing you’re in this world,

makes it easier to bear,

having a shoulder to cry on,

having someone who cares.

Time flies and we don’t connect,

I like to think that somewhere,

you and I are dreaming

and looking up at the same stars.

Wonderful to know,

that you are around,

I’ll be sure to hear from you -

read your email and smile.

In the meantime,

my dreams bring you to me,

where we are together,

sitting side by side.

Perhaps one day,

we’ll meet once more,

just name the time and place

and I’ll fly to your side.

Funny how things in this world,

never go according to plan,

we should be together you and I,

not an ocean apart.

There was a time,

when knowing you were mine,

made my heart glow -

my smile so very bright.

Things cannot always be right

and time marches on,

changing things along the way -

separating lovers and friends.

Friends like you are a treasure,

so I will remember you forever,

look up at the heavens -

say thank you that you’re in this world with me.

Thank you, Michael. Not sure if crushing you was a good thing though so hope you have a happy and sunny Friday.

Having a love that makes us feel whole again. Your poem was perfect and you still found a way to make it better. Ending with James Taylor. You crushed me on this Friday.

I would be totally lost without Bev. Plain and simple fact. Just knowing she is in my life gives me peace and comfort. Thank you for this one.
