The L In Da Name Linda Stands For Love


"Shhh,  look there they are. 
No one believed me. 
Now you see them too.
 A blessing of Unicorns. 

 If anyone knew where they were
it would be the end of the Unicorns.

 The one with the wings is the Queen. 
See how sad she looks. 

She has separated herself from the blessing. 

She loves the other Unicorns 
but she is dealing with her own issues.
They love her, she knows that.

This is different.

She has to deal with this herself. 

She knows she is loved.
She knows they all care for her.

Deeply!

She is their Queen after all. 

What? 
A song? 
Maybe!
I don't know. 

I brought poetry.
I brought soup. 
I have to try. 

I hope she believes me. 
She is going to be fine. 

I dreamt about her. 
In the dream her wings were spread.
You should of seen them spread 
they must of spanned farther than the horizon 
higher than the milky way. 

In my dream her magic horn was a beacon,
 it was leading her through the dark
but she was also a beacon for everyone else. 
Everyone who was trapped in the  darkness. 
She led them too! 
She always has. 
She is our Queen after all.

 I stood there amazed 
she was magnificent.

 She waited patiently and the light filled her. 
She knew it would happen and she was right.

That hand from up above 
the one she always trusted
filled her with light. 
She is the Queen and in my dream 
she had returned in her full glory."

Linda was back. 
It starts with an L 
L stands for love.

Maybe It's not a dream.

 'Fairy tales can come true - 
It can happen to you...
life gets more exciting with each 
passing day...!' 

I believe dreams are 
just a window to reality. 

I believe in Fairies.
 I believe in Unicorns. 
And I believe in Linda!

There is part of a song in there Sinatra but I only used the words I liked. Now I think I should take a song I like and rewrite it for you. Yes I should do that, that would be fun.

THIS IS ALREADY A FAV.... Maurice, Congratulations on your win. I'm finally making time to read every entry, intended for me in Shadow's Hamilton depression contest. It was a tough fight, however at the end I prayed, and asked to take over and he did. WOW, it was what I call a miracle. Thanks for lifting my day with this poem... Love LINDA

I am sure it was he who guided my hand, I didn't want to write poetry but rather to express to a dear friend what I felt in my heart. Lots of Love, Always!

Reading it again, Maurice. I really love the part where you say you brought her poetry and soup. Have you read "chicken soup for the soul?" I wonder if the name for poetrysoup came from that same book idea!!

Hi Maurice, Epic write. "Dreams are just a window to reality" is a very nice touch. This is a great tribute to PD. Congratulations on your well deserved win. I feel honored to share 2nd. place with you. I gave you a 7. I just learned how to use the rating system. I'm a slow learner. Have a great day. Earl
