Blanket of Happy

I wish I had magic to take away her sad
A blanket of happy to drape over her shoulders
Warming her spirit turning her solemn day glad

Sometimes darkness rolls over us like boulders
Each of us possesses a special gift to share
A blanket of happy to drape over her shoulders

When a mood comes we can feel full of despair
I have spent many days on darkened doorways
Each of us possesses a special gift to share

Each word I send is sprinkled with light rays
My friend does not need to stay where I've been
I have spent many days on darkened doorways

Let her soar amidst natures happy scene
My happy thoughts flow across a calm sea
My friend does not need to stay where I've been

It may not be enough yet I give a part of me
My happy thoughts flow across a calm sea
I wish I had magic to take away her sad
Warming her spirit turning her solemn day glad

    I am amazed that you think you have lost your dream. From my perspective it is merely a matter of you pursuing it. You have the talent you just need to put a plan in motion to move towards it. When it comes to poetry soup this is not the venue to become recognized, it is a place to hone our writing skills.

    Too much pressure....Work wise, family commitment wise....big events coming up. I'm just so not up to anything taxing. I've become a bit of a recluse. I'm worried....At times...I just don't see that light at the end of the tunnel...A big BIG cause of my pain is my writing....It's hard to lose a dream...I can't bear it...

    this is so sweet, Richard. I think you are one of the poets who likes to use this form a lot? If not, you should do it a lot because it becomes you!

    Yes I do enjoy this form, it is kind of like excercise for the mind. Sometimes difficult to carry a coherent thought from beginning to end which is actualy the beginning again.
