    And this is the challenge, I guess
    To retain a willing capacity for feeling
    even when feeling
    has slapped you speechless
    more times than you can form words to convey.
    Dare to break the hold of memory
    and banish shadow for light,
    Learn to love freely because love is all there is,
    And release all fear,
    realizing that fear is bondage
    even when camouflaged in kisses

    You have opened my soul wide,
    Whispered into my ear the song
    That beats in time
    with the fullness of creation
    Dared me to dance.

    And if for a moment I glimpse
    A bit of eternity in your eyes,
    Or taste the stuff of heaven
    on your sweet and yielding lips,
    Then I am reminded that
    a moment and eternity
    are One
    in that realm where love abides.
    And there I find my peace.

    to that is the answer reaping mellow dreams
    seams tucked nicely in sallow goodbyes
    as the new moment births into existence
    holding back joyous tears ready to cry
    all cause love feels so **** good...

    inspiring me...i like this much

    One,
    Derrick Jay

    Derrick: Wow. I LOVE it when i get a poem in response to a poem! Dynamic inspiration at its best. Synergy!! Your response was wonderful. Thank you. You know how much I admire your work any time and any place I find it.

    $$RICH$$ !! We're blessed when we find someone who excites us and brings us a feeling of peace, all at the same time. I consider myself blessed. I'm glad you felt me.
