The way I am

I am moved to tears by acts of kindness
My heart rejoices when black turns to white
It’s not that other emotions mean any less
I am simply touched when things turn out just right

        When fortune smiles on those in plight…

If fate deals a dirty hand then I will weep
But happy endings cause my eyes to stream
My soul cries out to those in trouble deep
Only, I hope that things may not be as they seem

        A pain free world is the core of all I dream…

    Dearest Nigel and Christie, I am writing the same note to you both to thank you personally for honoring me with first place in your contest. Truly shocked and bewildered, I have never really excelled at anything in my life, until coming to this site. This means very much to me, especially because you are both such talented poets. Just a great big thank you from my heart to yours, for whatever reason you chose mine. It means so much to me. Love & hugs ~ and happiness to you both. Love, Shar

    Hi Nigel. I wish more people were like us in this world...Nice use of the English Quitain. Have a wonderful time in Italy (I'm from Romania originally, land of the Romans and Dacians:)

    This is so beautiful, just as your heart is so hard to find such compassion these days. Life holds many things for us, some good, some not so good, but it is people like you that make life so wonderful....always, Christy
