Will there be a day when my words disappear?
Deep in my mind that is my greatest fear
Words that I write give me distraction
Opening new worlds is their attraction

I breath in thoughts, exhale them to the page
Rewarded with poem, my gift and my wage
How would life be without this special gift?
What would I do for my spirit to lift?

Sometimes I wonder, if these words are mine
Happy with connection to the Devine 
So while I have them, happy will I be
Greater perspective, gift that sets me free

Daily prayer, words upon a lonely stage
Expressed in pictures, words written on a page
If they are read, they will not dissapear
They will be evidence, that I was here

    You will be the unforgettable friend for many of us, don't worry, dear Rick! Today, I chose this special poem because it has been written on a very special day; the birth day of my very first grand-daughter, Maëlle! She will be happy to learn Englsh with this very special blessed poem... Love, Hanitra

    A worthwhile legacy for sure, Richard. It's just my imagination, but I believe that each word we speak travels the universe into can never be taken back! I may have written a poem when the thought came to me. Another one of your lovely poems!

    To say the least- if you ever lost your amazing talent- which trust me, you won't- I would be DEVISTATED! And I think I speak for majority of the soupers when I say that! This is awesome, Rick :) your poetry always brightens my days
