Updated on April 8, 2012

With every thought from smiles embraced,

A heart wakes up a special place.

So full of joy and lasting cheer,

A hug or two would be so dear;

But lonely is the one, who waits,

On borrowed promises of fate;

To touch the hand of nearly wishes,

Waiting for the sweetest kisses,

As the fables in a story book,

Reality’s not how it looks.

My Thoughts as a Poet

Poetry is a great way to relieve the everyday stress of reality. Life sure can be harsh at times. Maybe the people we care for hurt our feelings or we ignore theirs. Maybe thoughts written down somewhere can help express things we didn't even know was an issue.

Poetry can help the poet deal with grief, somehow making sense of why we lost a special friend or loved one. Life or death seldom has reasons we the human can understand. Perhaps if we look at it from an inspirational point of view, we can ease our own pain as well as others. I have written many memorial poems for the people I held dear who left to soon. Sometimes just writing about memories can help with missing those passed on.

Greeting card company's have used poetry to express feelings the buyer wants to say to the people they care enough about to send one to. Sometimes it's hard to find a card which expresses things we really want our special person to know. Many years ago while searching for a card without finding anything near what I wanted to say to my grandmother, I enclosed a poem (She's the Apple of my Eye) I had written to her personally. She was so touched by it she cried. That wasn't what I had in mind. But she cherished the thoughts I had written about her.

The links below are poems I've written over the years that I made hubs from.

Sometimes We Really Need to Break Free From Reality

      Thank you, Hyphenbird. I find your kind compliments very valuable to me. HubPages is well known for hubbers encouraging their fellow writers. To me that's the reason I enjoy this site the most.

      Brilliant! I really found this really clear to understand. Well, from what I can gather I'm being told that love is not all fairly tales and happy endings. Brilliant rhythm and rhyming techniques.
