    Wrote so many love poems
    The alphabet can probably read my mind
    and form it's own love's sonnet
    describing how I've sighed and pined
    But, he knows this...

    I've dreamed of him, both awake and asleep
    Felt our energies merge and embrace
    Felt as though he was actually within my reach
    Waking up with tears of joy streaming down my face
    This, he also knows

    He knows that he has taken me to heights
    that I never thought I'd ever had known
    Like riding on Pegasus, taking flight
    Heads in the clouds, this Eden, our own
    He remembers

    And each time we reach that zenith
    that special spot in our horizon
    Where I could smell the lilacs, and taste
    the ambrosia, then without rhyme or reason
    He stops

    Promises made, yet broken
    Heartache beyond what words can display
    Love that strong can't just be erased at once
    Then he has the audacity to say
    It was I who stopped...

    I've tried to make sense of it all
    Why reasons went amiss
    Why rhymes stopped short of a kiss
    Wish he'd just allow his heart to lead him to bliss
    But, of course...
    He already knows this...

    You are awesome and so is this pin.

    I truly see this something deep in this flow.
    In each stance you climb
    As you wrote him in poem
    After dreaming of him and waking each morn
    To the sky flying high like Pegasus, taking flight
    To that special spot in the horizon

    You were leading
    When you stopped doing
    He was lost.

    For there is no one else like you
    Who can take him places he never seen or knew
    A woman of splender, charm and of grace
    Makes a man com-plete compete
    To have her in his life.

    I loved this piece, it was so gentle and fragile from a pain we all experience. Brought a tear to my eye...

    You did thatgirl? Why thank you for saying so poetess.
    Well gee, Hodee, I'm speechless, you're one special brother. Actually, I initially followed, but I guess I was supposed to take the reins completely, and gee, how does one do that? I am humbled, thanks a million.
    Brought a tear to your eye Phenomenon. Coming from a poet who knows exactly what poetic hues to blend, I truly appreciate that response. Thank you.
    Why thank you Rich for such a lovely response. And since he knows, then ???
