I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
"Stand by Me" by John Lennon
"No One Knows"
It saddens her
to see his distraught heart
giving up the one he loves,
for fear has no understanding
of life’s next move,
while the power of love
can change the outcome of anything.
If life deals him a bad hand
her back will not turn
she will stand firmly beside him,
tackling any bumps along the way.
She prays he learns, love doesn't stop
if he runs,
each moment in life is a gift worth enjoying,
with no need to look ahead
preparing for the unknown.
"Time in a Bottle" by Jim Croce
