I wrote this when Ember died.


Stop the World

I want the world to stop today,
suspend its orbit Oh God I pray,
when  you called our little angel away
our lives have just become a total disarray.

We know that there must be a reason
you only gave her to us for a season.
Now she rests in your loving arms
oh Lord please hold us in your arms.

If you find a moment to spare
please find some love to share
with those that are here, left behind
We need the love that is pure and kind.

Oh God please stop the world for just 1 day


*For those who loved Ember*
Curb your politician.  We have leash laws you know.

Thank you, Diane, and thank you, David.

Steve, that was a lovely poem for Ember. Often the darkest hours bring forth the most powerful and meaningful poems because the words come from the depths of our hearts.

I enjoyed them too...

My mom used to write poetry and often tacks little rhymes on the end of her letters or greeting cards. I find it charming.
I don't feel inspired to write poetry much, and that's probably a good thing; I noticed that mine seem to end up like some wacky limerick or have phrases "borrowed" from some old 70's rock song ;)

Joanna you have all it takes to write poetry. You find it charming and appreciate it when your mom writes you a note. I only write poetry when I feel inspired. The more I write the more I find inspirations. Nothing wrong with limericks and borrowed "images" from old 70's rock songs. You seemed primed to write a poem to me. This is the poetry section of the forum and not the politics section so I think you will find it very friendly. Take your best happy memory, thought, day, love and write a poem. I bet you like it and I know we will. I will be waiting with great appreciation.

She Wolf's Birthday
The she wolf stands in the full moonlight.
Gray hair tinged purple in the dark blue night.
She surveys the world and all that's good.
Watching the pups, they play with some wood.
Knowing her efforts did them some good.
Back to the pack slowly she must go.
Savoring moments of long ago.
Honor she wolf on her birthday night.
For the pack she does all that is right.

Happy 50th Birthday Pam and many more.
