Letter in a Bottle

Updated on March 24, 2012


I want to dedicate this poem to ANANCELESTE . I found her hub "Message in a Bottle" and it had no replys. I could not believe that that this beautiful write of hers, did not have at least one response from all of the thousands of other hubs on hubpages. So ANANCELESTE, this poem is for your beautiful tribute of inspiration. Know that you are loved by the Lord and appreciated at least by a humble poet.


As I walked alone sadly,

along the white sandy beach

I saw what looked like an empty Bottle..

there it was within my reach.


I lifted it out of the water,

as if it was meant to be

inside the bottle there was a letter

the words inside I had to read


" To whom it may concern"...

meant it was addressed to me.

A clear Bottle, a written Letter,

taken from the Deep Blue Sea


"I don't know who you are..it read.

but in the Lords eyes.. we are the same

we have loved, made many mistakes

and we are usually not to blame

.

Your forgotten Dreams and expectations..

are distant memories in the wind.. begotten

as you walked along the beach thinking that

things are lost.. but are not forgotten.


This Letter is written for you,

a Letter left. in a bottle. so only you would find

where it comes from.... who I am....

should be the farthest thing from your mind.


Your journey of a thousand steps

should and will end right here.

The Lord has brought you to this beach

to take away all your fears


On your Soul the Lord has written..

the Words for your Hopes to stay alive

with his Blessings and full Love in your heart..

to spread his word.. now you must strive.


This Bottle with a letter has traveled

far across the Deep Blue Sea

at this moment.. at this hour

the Lord wants his message to be

that no matter what you think you are missing

or what you think you lack,

know that the Lord will always Love you

and will always have your back.

      Voronwe, thank you for your kind comments. This was for a fellow hubber, I seem to write my best when i have someone else's words for inspiration.

    • Voronwe profile image

      It started off gently...and what an uplifting inspirational message it conveyed. The emotions here are really in their purest form.

      "On your Soul the Lord has written..

      the Words for your Hopes to stay alive

      with his Blessings and full Love in your heart..

      to spread his word.. now you must strive."

      This is the sort of tender message we always need to know or hear or understand at some point - and you put it so uniquely in so few words. Quite masterful.

      That's so kind and humble of you Michael, to post this. Because of your kindness, I've had the privilege to read a magnetically beautiful poem. "I don't know who you are..

      but in the Lords eyes.. we are the same". I don't know why but I really love that part. Thank you for sharing this!
