Picture by Cris A and used with his ok...:O)per his last Hub Thanks angel...hope you like this one

Cris A inspired of Course :O)


An open window can set me free

so I can be what I want to be

I can see clearly as I gaze ...

all the Pains of yesterday

Sometimes covered by a curtain

Making things a bit un-certain

Ragged edges of a torn heart

A Love has left ...for a new start

Sometimes Blinded to what Life brings

but glimpse through the cracks

of positive things

Also blinded from the Light the Light of God

and all His might...

Life can sometimes leave rough

Raw torn edges to your soul

But character that is only you

Once your heart is steadfast and true

I think of how friends come and go

They affect our life's and fill our hearts

Occasionally lost on life's rugged road

Always looking for that Goldentoad

I see through the clouds of white

A toad if kissed becomes my night

Wishes and dreams that do come true

Whilst the Angels Loveingly watch over you

The Cris cross of the curtains blow

and remind me of a flowing soul

So kind, so true so very smart

He has tangled himself within my heart

Shades of darkness appear at times

But still there is a light that shines

A light that gives you strength and hope

To love and care and even cope.

Sometimes the storm seems very stronge

Of shattered dreams and broken songs

But the window is always open if not nailed

Off into the Blue she sailed.

      What can I say? The poem speaks of many things, sad things, hopeful things, things about love and life. A wonderful poem and it has made me wistful but in a good way.

      Tangled, enmeshed, indelibly imprinted and I have no plans of going away! Lurve ya to bits! :D
