    It was'nt till years after my Parents died that I realized just how much my Dad loved my Mother!
    Heres his poem to her which lay hidden for many years

    "You and you alone dwell in my heart and reign supreme
    You are the beginning and the end of every dream
    This is Heaven there could be no other road for me
    You are my star of fate and fortune
    You are my destiny

    Now the secret has been told,the truth I have confessed
    In the hollow of your hand my happiness will rest
    Now you know beyond all doubt that I am all your own
    Now you know it's you I love
    It's you and you alone".

    hope that this thread becomes a site for Poets Dreamers and Lovers...JB

    Hey, John Boy, that's a very nice poem that your Dad wrote to you Mother.
    I can appreciate that because I myself is a poetry writer. Thanks again for posting that treasure from your Father.

    Loving You

    Loving you is my heart's delight
    And my love for you is deep as the sea
    No one can vouch that but the Lord Almighty.

    My love for you is unconditional in so many ways
    Heaven knows life's obstacle tend to be on your way
    But my heart tells me you are the one and my destiny.

    Loving you is a true God's miracle
    Deep in my heart, I build us a temple
    For you and me to worship the love we nurture.

    Loving you is a wondrous feeling of contentment
    It's a sure feeling that you and I are sharing
    What has God bestowed in us is blissful and loving.

    Nice one Swan.
    If I read poems like these I always wonder how it is possible that there are also human beings amongst us who don't seem to have the slightest bit of love for other humans and do everythingl what other humans can hurt.
    Await your next one.

    All the Lonely People

    Everyday I see them hiding in the shadows
    Where they go to at night nobody knows
    Queuing for their fix the morning is theirs
    By afternoon they have solved the Worlds wrongs
    Once more into oblivion addiction lets them rest
    Before its ugly head surfaces once more
    To curse the World in which they live.........JB

    Hi Jellyfish, thanks for comments. My poem serves as a wakeup call for people who don't seem to care for their love one's feelings. We don't wait to tell them how we feel until it's too late.
