A New Day...

A New Day...

I thought I'd try putting some of my poems here so that others had access to them. Forgive their imperfections, their creator is only human. I hope that you might find some small use for these poems, simple though they are.

If you like a poem or choose to use one for anything - please leave a comment - I'd like to hear from you.

(If I have modified a poem to better suit a person or situation, I will try to upload both the original and modified versions.)

(As I get time I'll try to add more - don't expect all of them at once...)

A Legacy of Love (modified 2010)

A legacy of love                                                She knew that you loved her
Is what she brought to earth                                    As you prayed
To measure it –impossible-                                    That loving arms
You cannot tell it’s worth                                    Would show the way
A smiling face                                                 That God would grant her
A tender touch                                                       Sweet release
Such simple things                                                And gentle ways
Can mean so much                                                To feel His peace
She showed her love                                                Her Father’s arms
In quiet ways                                                            Were open wide
And tender looks                                                 As He gathered her
To fill your days                                                Close to His side
Your memories                                                With grand reunions
Grew fonder still                                                Taking place
As each new day                                                With loved ones
With love she filled                                                In that special place
Her love for you                                                Her time on earth
You knew full well                                                A memory sweet
More clearly than                                                Will fill your hearts
The tongue could tell                                                With love complete
As resting time           
Did close in           
And the veil                                                            By: Melinda Durrant
Was growing thin                                                            May 2010
