Parchment to Verse, A Thank You to A fellow Hubber.
From Parchment Paper (A Friend was found)
From parchment paper his thoughts were drawn,
Of life’s first chapters he does but warn;
Lyrical is his myth but oh so true
In a land of imagination his writing grew.
From scripture to life and eventful days
filled with musing and stories for everyone to praise.
This man is a thinker his soul is full of truth
What he writes from his heart
gives us inspiration through and through.
His kindness and generosity amazes me still
But I stand in awe of his talent, as only I can do.
This man is a friend that I hardly know
But his compassion and generosity doth glow
From within his heart is always a warm smile
And cherished has his friendship been
to let me visit a while.
From his writing my inspiration has grown
And I can only offer words of praise for his wisdom I have know.
So thank you Wayne Brown, for all that you have said
But more so the fact that you have lead
me to some verse that in my heart I have loved
And through your tender generosity
I have used in my prose, my memoirs are written
And a chapter in my life has closed; love has allowed me to be forgiven.
Sometimes and from nowhere.
I met Wayne Brown when I first joined Hub Pages, and little did I realise on the first comment I ever wrote in reply to his beautiful poetry, that I would become so hooked.
Wayne has been such an inspirational and gracious friend during my journey here, and as recently given me his permission to add one of his stunning poems to close my memoirs. In this instance "A Man's Prayerful Presence". This isn't the first time that Wayne has kindly allowed me to share one of his poems. The first time, I asked him to forward the copy of one of his poems that was an important message for my son, who was struggling with his drug habit. Wayne again was so generous to allow me to do this for my son, and I have still kept the poem in a folder for my son to read whenever he needs the strength of love.
Wayne to say thank you will never be enough, but I will always value your generosity and fantastic poetry for as long as I am able.
