    I held out my hand
    That I might
    sAvOr
    The memory of a dying leaf
    A thief
    Stole the soul
    Of the breeze that carried it
    And gave it to me

    I
    Treasure
    The moon’s glow at midnight
    …The sun’s warmth at dawn
    When wisdom of eternities
    Rise…to greet us

    I
    Am
    Blessed

    Blessed by arms that embrace me
    …hearts that hold me
    Love that cherishes me
    Air that breathes me
    Believe me

    There is no one more needy than me

    I watch the day

    I caress the night

    I write.

    Suitors know a fair wind blows
    At the ready near
    Pure of heart
    Rooted there
    Leaves fall
    Even here ~

    LOVE...
    Don't despair

    :)
