    I know a man named Quiet.
    Some think he is stuck up.
    But nay, he isn't stuck up.
    He's simply wise.
    He has learned the power
    Of possessing a silent spirit.
    I admire him.
    He is my secret.

    When I can't be alone with Quiet,
    I pull out leftover memories of him.
    They speak mightily in small voices.

    But whenever I AM with Quiet,
    My heart does rejoice.
    His wisdom shouts in whispers
    And his common sense stills me,
    Like the wind that must've heard Jesus.

    Yes, I love a man named Quiet.
    One day, we shall live continually as one.
    At night I will whisper his name...Quiet.
    And he shall call me...Peace.

    Byin and Purplemoon:

    Thank you for the kind comments. I don't think I've had the pleasure of meeting either of you. This place has changed a lot since I've last posted a poem. Seems as though most of the oldies took a sabbatical or like me, got so busy doing others things that they rarely get time to come by every day like they use to.

    Rich:

    How are you? I miss you kind and sweet spirit. Thanks for feeling me on this one...as you always do...smile.

    J'hiah: My poetic twin. Yes, it has been quite sometime. I am so tied up doing other things, that I can't be by here as often as I use too. I've missed scribing with you and I am so glad we were able to pick up where we left off from.

    Royal_T: Thank you so much. I don't believe we've met. I must make sure I get around to reading you here. With a pen name like yours, I know I'm in for a treat.

    Baller, Baller, Baller...how I've missed reading you...letting you take me down those poetic lanes of love and deep thought. I will be allowing you to massage my soul once more. Thank you.
