Thank you Hubbers.......

From the hardened man beast to the tenderest
and gentle beauty of a females soul
There is nothing ....more revealing than
laying it out in a written role

Be gentle with the poet....be kind to
to the teller of story
For a writer bares it all and
finds no inner glory

He may give you some inner
peace or ..... she share a hidden secret
But take the gift inside and hold
it dear.....there is no regret

Perhaps an litttle known secret ....one writer
touches another writer in ways unshown
Hold onto my words ....And I'll hold yours
and then.....only then ....we are known

"This is dedicated to all the friends .....real friends! that I've found here on hubpages , I as you , cherish the sharing of our inner voices " Thank you all ....Ed..

Ed;

A nicely worded and nicely thought out sentiment. Although I have been a 'follower' for some time now, I must admit I have not been a good follower, as I have never been very much 'into' poetry. But I should visit your pages more, because it is clear that you are a talented writer of verse.

And I can say thankyou to you, for all your writings, and for the fact that you were, I think, the second ever to comment on my writings and the first to send me a message or 'fan mail'. That gave a great boost of confidence to me in my early days on this site.

I sincerely trust your 'thank you' poem to fellow hubbers does not indicate that you are leaving the site? I truly hope not, because HubPages needs good writers of prose and poetry, and that, you undoubtedly are.

It was good to be back to your spring water.

Hey there!! I have to say that you said it all in those few, but beautiful, words from the heart. You have shared such awesome stories and poems here, it is always a treat to read your hubs and I want to say Thank You for that. I have read so many wonderful Hubs here some fiction, mostly truths, I do believe. An insight into peoples souls without meeting them face to face gives us a different view of others inner spirit. Thank you, and all the Hubbers here, so much for sharing a part of yourself with us!! It's always a pleasure to read what you put into words!! Awesome Hub!! Blessings!!!

LOL!!! I have been working and living!! As you know I moved across the country a couple of years ago and started a new life away from all the drama that was really having a negative effect on my health, I met someone that has made happier than I have ever been in my life and so I have been savoring the goodness. I do miss everyone here and do stop in to check on you all from time to time, but I have been having fun and being Thankful every single day for this awesome man!!! And you ahorseback are very welcome and I thank you right back for your encouragement and support of my Hubs as well!! I wish you all Blessings!!
