Still Waters Run Deep

Still waters run deep

in the trials of our minds,

with the battles and challenges

that we strive to complete.

With memories gone by

in the shadows of our past,

and with the hopes of our future

we all seem to grasp.

Still waters run deep

with the pain and the knowing,

that life's hurdles thrown at us

are there to remind us.

What we once had,

how we once lost,

how we now live

and how we now love.

Still waters run deep

as we are reminded of that first kiss,

your wonderful smile,

your gift of love

the fact that you remain to be who you are.

Still waters run deep

with the meaning of life,

with the knowing each breath

gives us reason to be,

reason to share

and reason to forsake.


Still waters run deep

with the memories of loss,

and the faith of rebirth

that wraps it's heavenly arms

around our gentle souls.

To caress us and love us

and to protect us from doubt.

Still waters run deep,

Still waters run deep

  • One Last Cigarette Please

    I know it is easy enough to criticise people who smoke, but also I know how difficult it is to quit. I gave up smoking after I saw what it did to my father after over 30 years of smoking.

  • I Dream Of Scary Monsters

    This was the very first poem I ever wrote back in 1969. It put me on the platform to bring out my creativity and to continue to write poems today.

  • I Am Lucky To Have Met You

    I am lucky to have met you to see your smile, feel your touch taste your kiss. I am lucky to have met you to share with your laughter share the vision of your dreams and overcome your fears. I am so lucky...

A beautiful poem. The repetition is like the timelessness of a lake.
