April Poetry Month 2012

Poem 6

You share with me

Your greatest gift

Your light and laughter

I am radiant

And must return to you

This magic


You are the most special

Of all who have touched my life

Gifted and giving

Unsparingly kind

Throbbing with the fever

Of being


You are all that is good

You have heard the music

Of my heart

And the murmur of my spirit

Heard them both

And made of yourself

A hymn of celebration

Like Audrey, I like the last stanza...especially, "music of my heart and murmur of my spirit". Thank you.
