You Bette ! ..

So , was it real cold there , in my shadow .
When M/S Midler sang , with you in mind .
When all we shared
Was the time ,we spared
And lost dreams , I still had to find .
That fickle friend named Limelight
Made you step into the shade.
As I took the bow
For the here and now
And false promises I made .
But the silent strength beside me
And protection that it brings
Was the lifting breeze of loyalty
Yes ! , the wind beneath my wings.
Like the many friends , I've found here
On this talented , varied site
As M/S  Midler still reminds me
Your lifting wind still helps me write .

  Do I believe it ?? .....   You  Bette !! ....

Inspired by the Pen to Song contest and the quality writers on this site ..

    Excellent, Sean! This is a beautiful tribute to poets and the interactions on this site that somehow make us soar higher than we ever dreamed possible. At least that's what happened for me. Love to you, Dane Ann

    Love the ending! My favorite song by Bette is "The Rose". I even sang it for my sister's wedding. Enjoyed this poem. Good luck in the contest. Thanks for passing on the challenge--I enjoyed it. Have a good weekend. Karen

    Bette! She was a big star, almost as big as Dolly. They were TWO of my favorites. Vince
