Wish I Could Follow All Of You (Poem)

Updated on December 24, 2015

Listen and Breeze Read Along

Following You Up


A Beautiful Hub Path

Wish I could follow all of you

You mean good life to me,

I’ll do all that I can do

To be the best that I can be,

You have a lot to offer

With so much to give

As I read the words you proffer

I admire how you live,

I admire your capacity

To hold love in your heart

With reluctant tenacity

To withhold any part,

When you love

You show it purely

There’s no doubt

You love surely,

Love makes you

A world-class winner

It allows your heart to dominate

And be a hate thinner,

I wish to follow all of you

With complementary traces

That my spirit had visited

Interesting places,

You have uniqueness

That God has bestowed,

To cover the bleakness

In lost souls without hope,

I want to follow all of you

That walk with a smile

I’d like to share what I do

If only for a while,

Have a blessed day

As it times along,

May love remain your way

To be spiritually strong

    So pretty word55. I loved it. I too wish I could follow and read everyone here. Everyone has their own little unique niche to add that makes it fun to travel around. This was a lovely dedication to all writers here at hubpages.

    Wow Dana, you've spoken like a champion about these writers. I'm glad they make you feel the way you do. You have a very gentle and appreciative heart. Glad to be following you :-).

    Amazing and I agree with you 100% I have been a member for two years but just really started writing. As you know when you're more of a poet than an actual writer the inspiration flows differently. But I must say I have never been part of a community where there are a bunch of positive, beautiful, kind-hearted people. These hubbers only lift you up and not tear you down, I hope whoever created this site can read this post. They have really created a beautiful place for writers and aspiring writers.

    Beautiful expressions!

    You said it right, being an hp member, you can never feel alone. The kind words of the community members always encourage you and cheer you up, if at all one is feeling low.

    Well expressed and perhaps you expressed on behalf of so many of us, fellow hubbers.

    Thank you!

    Because sharing is caring and so, we hubbers must share our thoughts and gifts that the Lord has bestowed and likewise, I wish I could follow you all.

    Great thoughts. Thank you.

    Greatly effective. Some Hubbers write and share their hubs daily time for all is not at hand.

    Hi Mekenzie, Thank you for stopping by. The staff should set up a hub pages convention in every city, region or a particular area for us to meet every so many years like a reunion (LOL). Oh well, just a crazy idea. I look forward to getting more acquainted with you also :-)

    Thank you BlossomSB for stopping by, reading and complimenting, We can only read so much, right? Then some days you may spend hours reading hubs as well as writing one so, it's all understandable. Anyway, I'm glad you read some of mine and thank you very much for the blessings :-)

    word55, this is so loving and compassionate -- what a beautiful way to express your thoughts to Hubbers. Thank you !

    We may follow, but we do not follow, indeed ~

    We walk side by side, write and read

    We may lead, but we do not lead ~

    We walk side by side, write and read

    Have a lovely, sunshiny day. I wish for you rainbows and butterflies.
