My special list

Written by: Sonia Schroeder

I have a list of folks I know, all written in a book.
And every now and then, I go and take a look.
That is when I realize these names are a part, not of the book they're written in,
but written in my heart.
For each name stands for someone, who has crossed my path sometime.
And in that meeting have become the reason and the rhyme.
Although it sounds fantastic for me to take this claim,
I really am composed of each remembered name.
Although you are not aware of any special link, knowing you has shaped my life more
than you think.
So please don't think my greeting, as just a mere routine. Your name was not forgotten in 
between. For when I send a greeting that is addressed to you, it is because you're on
the list of folks I am indebted to.
