I feel honored for my win, Rob. I know how high your standards are and that my type of poetry is not always your cup of tea. Thanks so much for my win and for the inspiration for what I wrote.

You're welcome. I love music, its depth and power, so I thought I would give it a try for a contest, but this time, instead of focusing on the lyrics, I wanted it to be the music. TY for supporting my contest.

Thanks for the mention Rob . I actually put music to this and had it recorded , many moons ago. If I can resurrect it from the pits of wherever , I attempt to send it on . Keep well / stay safe in these crazy days - At least we all have a 'safe-haven' here on this site !.. Best wishes, Seán ..
