World's Greatest Writers and Composers

Updated on April 9, 2014

Making the world seem less harsh

Source

Though we have never met,

I feel your presence.

I want to write the perfect sonnet

create a simple lyric

showcasing what you mean to me

for you make the world seem less harsh.

You remind me of the beauty, kindness and care.

I listen to the music

strumming from your bard harps.


On those days when all seems bleak,

there you are encouraging,

sending strength.

While my memory ebbs and flows

or headaches I never had before

pound and seem to last forever,

there you are providing

medicinal music,

serenity, peace and love.


Trying to find paper and pen,

I struggle with writer’s block.

My hands shake.

My mind bends.

Seeking direction,

I find you – The World’s Greatest

Authors and Composers:

I love you!

My hub page friends!

      Hey Kim great to see a new hub from you. At first I thought this was a tribute to classical music composers, then as the poem went on I understood it was to your fellow hubber writers and poets. " I listen to the music, strumming from your bard harps" I love that. You have been greatly missed, welcome back. All the best in everything.
