LOVE AND HOPE

Long ago and far away
I gave my heart
to love and hope
I still believe though grown
that wondrous things
will come to me!

I feel that if I live with love and hope
and try to do my very best
that a great force
whom I call God
will put his touch
on all the rest!

There have been losses
then came countlees ways
to love and give
affections of so many kinds
inspire every day I live!

I still believe
as I did in my early youth
that living is all growing
and in this I've found
my deepest truth!

I often seek for help in mediation and prayer
for me to know what's best
and my heart overflows with thanks
each night when I come to rest!

    Love this one... so true.
    living is all growing
    and in this I've found

    I wasnt upset with your post, i was worried that you were upset. I wasnt online much during the weekend and when i checked blogs yesterday, You, DD and Keshi were all sounding stressed out.

    You are a sweet and a kind hearted person and this quality reflects in your poetry. Dont let anyone get you down. You rock Margie!.

    Take care

    I am glad I decided to stay too!
    I am glad you were not upset with my post, as I thought it seemed you were by what you said on Keshi's blog.... Sorry I misunderstood!
    And, Keshi was a little mad...
    was she not?
    And, I could never be upset if you do not have time to come to my blog!
    Just come whenever you can!
    You are also so nice in your comments about my poetry!
    I really do appreciate your kind
    words and support!
    Take care ari!

  10. Thanks mumbai guy!
    The reason it is untitled is because I could not think of a title!
    That happens to me sometimes!
    Maybe I will be able to title it
    soon!

  30. Too talented. ..."to love and give affections of so many kinds" ....That has so much depth to it. To me, it says, a love for a family member, a love for a friend, and a love for a significant other. There are so many aspects of love---it's wonderful!

    I especially enjoyed reading this one.

    Thanks!

  31. M... I always wanted to go there (Garden of the Gods). Heard so many wonderful things about it. Never seemed to have time when I would make the trek to Co Spgs for a Sunday sing at Unity. Someday I suppose. Have a fabulous time!

    Garden of the Gods is truly beautiful!
    I did not want to leave there today!
    I was in total bliss... and had to
    make myself leave... I walked for over 3 hours!
    You will have to go when you have the next chance!
    Take care!
