The Last Poem

And Thus an Angel, appeared to me

She showed me my book of Poetry

Are these your words, written on this page,

these words here, did you sage

while wasting time, while passing the age ?

You write of such things

Women, Pain and Love

you write of Our Master, who resides above

You write of death, you write of life

You write of times when you faced much strife

she said, when I read your words I see

The full truth of what will be.

She opened the book

and she read this Poem:

If

If only my eyes could see...

you sitting right here next to me.

I would look for your fire

I know it is there..

Kiss your lips, touch your hair

Your beauty would hold me in it's grip

I know,You would not let me slip

My pain is not having you here with me

If you were here this you would see.



Then she turned and Thus She said,

As her eyes turned a fiery Red

Cherish the last words that you write

for this will be your final poem

The Master has told me

to call you home.

      MICHAEL,

      The section of this poem that begins with: If...

      ...Everything in that section will remain all if's with NO Fulfillment...

      I'm left stunned and 'in shock' after reading this poem.

      Email me and provide some of your wisdom for me...

      Ciao...Princess Prisca

      @cebutouristspot, Thank you for spreading my words like sprinkles of the Lords rain that falls when the dry ground really needs it.

      @Sweet Lady, thank you for your comments, Your last poem was very beautiful.

      @ My Katrine, you know me by now, Your words inspired me to do such writing, Thank you.

      Ruby, My precious, thank you for your comments,If it was scary I'm sorry. Don't worry. I am glad I could get that kind of wonder from my followers.

      @ Eddi, Thank you Love your comments. Glad you liked it.

      @ Princess, I can't tell if you like the whole poem or not. I only have FAITH to guide me. I take it you did not like my if poem?

      cleaner3,

      I like most of your poem.

      The (If) section gets shot down and shot up by the visit from death. (It sounds as if you are ending your poetry writing.)

      It threw me off...

      Blessings.

      Ciao...Princess Prisca

      My Sweet Nikki, Or would it be something simple, for I am simply a man. That is all I would want to be remembered as. That is a good title for a poem. Damn Nicole you have again inspired me.!! Thats why I love you so and miss your words, I just want to marry you.!!

      You have done it again, I might need some pics from you? what do you say?

      I'm speechless at the profound creativity of this poem. And what an enigmatic beautiful choice for that last poem 'If'! I can only wonder what made you decide...

      I am drawn to these lines especially:

      'she said, when I read your words I see

      The full truth of what will be.'

      They are haunting yet slightly hopeful.

      Thank you, Michael.

      What can I say to this??? I remember a person who sent me a message a long time ago he was new to hubpages and this was the message he sent to me.........

      I love lyrical poetry

      Ryhming is my style

      when i see a poem this good

      it makes my blood rile

      Why don't I have this talent

      to make my words sing

      like the freedom bell

      I want them to ring

      So now I'm inspired

      to ryhme just like you

      your poem lifted me up

      out of my sad blue.

      Sent to me some 10 months ago and I have followed your work closely since then and I say that you have more than accomplished that wish with this and many more of your poems. I loved this piece and I hope you carry on in the same remarkable style.

      Your friend................. Chris

      I chose to read this poem for you had it in your spotlight. Having read the comments, I note that it is one of your favorite poems, and I can see why you would choose this poem as one of your favorites. For me, the spiritual essence of the poem touched me deeply. I love the idea of an angel allowing me to do what I love most before escorting me to our holiest of hosts.

      Best Always,

      Just write a poem that does not end,

      One with eternity as it's friend.

      It took so long for me to see,

      The wonder that was right before me.

      So since we both know about reality,

      Life can go on for you and me.

      Your words add beauty to my collection

      of beautiful thoughts to which I cling.

      Like a gift left to be found and treasured,

      Who could know such endless pleasure?
