Michaela Payne

How does one pick a single soul in a field of Flowers? God would find it rather hard with all of his powers There are so many beautiful people as we all know I’m finding it rather impossible to pick a single soul Even as I pen this one is coming clearly to my mind Michaela is a very rare gift that is impossible to find She is like a spiritual daughter that blesses my heart She has been a very special friend right from the start Her and my daughter Michaela share the same name I have chosen my very dear friend, Miss Michaela Payne When we first met on the site each of us was fairly new She was the essence of the word “pure” through and through Michaela is so pure of heart and she is so pure of soul Beaming with a beautiful innocence so few ever know It was really hard at first because these words are true I thought, “Someone like her doesn’t need to know you” Sometimes in life the Lord brings together two souls As they each help each other understand their goals Through her friendship I was eventually able to see That there was still some good left up inside of me I truly doubt that Michaela could ever begin to know Beautiful blessing she has been up inside of my soul She knows that if ever she needs it I have a real good ear As I know my knowledge is something that she holds dear She knows what ever the subject I can offer sound advice For I haven’t just seen it all, I have seen most of it twice Never know how good it feels for a tired old convict like me To help someone as beautifully innocent as a person can be I reckon that leaves this old man with just one last thing to say I hope my Michaela grows to be just like her some beautiful day This Poem is written for Christie's contest and i must say I found it so very hard to choose just one person to write about because I have truly been blessed by many wonderful friends on this site. God Bless you all
