It is you I have placed
above myself
and all others,

It is you my soul clings to
in my dying days
and for whom my heart sorrows
when there are no more tomorrows.

It is for you I will sing
my last song.

It is you I will remember
when I am gone.

Who did you write this lovely poem for?


author comment

What does that mean?

Sad and romantic. Beautifully simple.

Thank you. When feelings get lost in words,they are simply described by the author and not felt by the reader.

emotional courageous and so true
we all still love you..
your words of wisdom
so fresh anew
as you slowly reach the horizon
which is far away in the distance
the dawn of light
sees another poem,
from you for us today...
many more shall and will come our way,
if you have a positive will
you'll much longer stay
and help mankind in all walks of life
in poetic armoury be that today's
Neopoets fashionary....


May it be as you say.

high morale
half battle is WON


that was 19 years ago..
they are baffled
you know..


Italian proverb: In old age the last thing welose is hope.

don't lose ever
till the plane takes off
i hope twill
and it does ..


Why not call this beautiful poem , You, unless you intend to leave it untitled. Nice piece. Regards Roscoe...

Roscoe Llane,

Religion will rip your faith off, and return
for the mask of disbelief that's left.

Thanks, Roscoe. I felt a title would somow trivialize the content,
