For My Followers and Friends

Updated on September 1, 2012

With humility and thanks I offer this to you

my followers and friends for reading what I do

for time given to me from the hectic lives you lead

and stopping by my page and taking time to read

I know your lives are busy and spare minutes very few

and by paying me a visit is a special gift from you

I worry that my words may sometimes not your hearts ensue

but things that I have written are my thought's coming through

sometimes my words are serious and express my points of view

sometimes they are more personal and speak of love and truth

sometimes they might seem funny because I want them too

and some might just seem strange, abstract and perhaps sewed

some of the things I write may bring a tear or two from you

but sometimes writing them was difficult as well for me to do

I have written poems of tragedy of love and an ode or two

and some I found compelling with deeper meanings coming through

but with all the things I write, the things that you took time to read

please know they were from my hart and filled a inner writing need

For writing is an honor, a privilege I believe from God above

and when you find it worth your time; it fuels the wiring thing I love.©
