    to a poet friend



    warm
    will
    come

    her
    smile will
    pierce society's crowd of
    chilling frowns and
    let downs

    to
    reach
    you

    she’ll
    melt away the cold
    unnumb your hope and
    confidence

    her
    rich rhymes
    will ripple through your veins
    restore
    trust to a
    heart tattered
    by misused love and
    kindness

    with
    combine effort
    you and she will stabilize
    emotional messes
    happiness
    will vibrate from
    your tongues and speak of
    endless days
    filled with love, laughter and
    adventure

    yes...

    its cold now

    but...

    warm
    is
    on
    her
    way

    Ohh, Sister Coco!

    I sure know this made ME feel "warm!"

    This felt like a (((hug))).

    Reading this took me to "The Color Purple" when Shug sang "Sistah" to Miss Celie.

    I definitely feel better....I'm sure your friend will too after all this LOVE.

    Cherryb, I love that part of the movie. I’m glad you felt a hug, cause sometimes just a simple hug lifts a load off us. Thanks a lot for coming through.

    Moe, Mmmm a hot cup of coffee and a good read… now that’s what I’m talkin ‘bout! Thanks for the double-take of my flow.

    Sir Richness, to warm your soul is a great pleasure.

    1poetsought, Your spirit is commendable.

    Thanks BIGTIME poet siblings for reading and responding!:)

    MaddSistahlyLove!

    Simply beautiful cocobutterskyn,

    Here's what does it for me, the last stanza, if you will:

    yes...

    but...

    warm
    is
    on
