Today I discovered

Today I discovered
That I’m not alone
I read of the pain
Other people have known.

The pain is different
Yet it’s still the same
Scarring each poet
That carries a name.

We live miles apart
Yet we share the same space
Writing words of emotion
That each of us can trace.

Each of us have lost
Something we treasure
But the pain of the memories
No words can measure.

Here at poetry soup
Together we become one
Sharing the stories
Our memories have spun.

Today I discovered
That I’m really not alone
My heart is touched
By the new friends I have known.

I would like to take the time to thank each and every one of you for your heartfelt
comments and the inspiration you have instilled into my life.  You will never fully know
just how much each one of you mean to me!  You make me smile; yet you make me cry.  And
for the first time in my life--I feel like I am somebody--somebody that has a purpose.  I
think of all of you as I work through the night; it not only makes the time go by faster
but it gives me a little spring in my step.  I want each of you to know, that you are very
special to me; and because of you--I believe I can fly!  God Bless all of you!  Love, Deborah
