"TEST OF TIME"

Post by Don » Mon Jan 10, 2011 12:08 pm

TEST OF TIME ©


I wish that I could write a poem that would stand the test of time
where every one could read my thoughts, not just the words that rhyme.

So when I bare my soul with ink and no one hears my cry,
that sound would ring in far off days if not to those nearby.

All though I'm sure the perfect verse will not be penned by me,
(as few are blessed to write a phrase recalled in history.)

But if found within my memory I write a line to quote,
that one-day you chance upon and read of what I wrote.

I hope you feel the meaning of what I had to say,
when I took a very part of me and put it on display.

For writing is like shouting for someone who is shy,
to find a word that fits the line is more than just a high.

But while my gift to destiny may only be to dream,
please let it be with words that rhyme, and have a catchy theme.

Don, I enjoyed your poem very much, and yes, I did see your heart as I read it and agree with your thoughts about writing. One blessing of poetic writing is that it does indeed, share our heart and soul with those who read it, I'm very anxious to read more of your work. God bless you!! Shirley B.
