A New Poem…


The Very Heart Of Me


They tell me you are bad

That you are a thief;

You admit you don’t play fair,

And I know you have stolen

The very heart of me.


I hang on your every word,

Hungering for a moment

Which we can spend together;

All I have are memories

And electronic text to sustain me.


They urge me to forget you,

But I am always remembering.

You are a part of me

I can not let go, you belong

At the very heart of me.

    Your words struck \’to the heart of me\’, Jo. A phrase from a song came to mind. \’I cling to a past the does not let me choose…."Time dulls memories but cannot erase. I hope to see more of your creativity, which I always have enjoyed. You have such talent.

    this is lovely thank you for sharing it. I\’m just taking a wander around the sites of people over 40 and telling them about a new way of advertising their site, making new friends and getting more visitors. It\’s called Life begins at 40 and you can find it growing on lots of sites. Pick one and join. Enter lots of details about your site to encourage people to come and visit you. When you have been approved for membership you will be emailed a code so that you too can have the ring on your site. When you do please write a little about the site so people know what it is about and ask people if they join through your site to leave a message so that you can make sure you go and visit them and leave a comment for them. This will help encourage the ring to grow and help you make loads of new friends. Great Idea costs you nothing (a real bonus) and helps you out to boot. How could you say no. Sending love and hugs from the songfairy?If you follow this link you will find my ring, Click on list and go visit other places in the link. You don\’t have to join on my site, You can join anywhere you see the life begins at 40 box. Thank you for reading this. I look forward to becoming your new friend.http://spaces.msn.com/members/indiaejones/Blog/cns!1pGDXJr9w51ZYWXPM1TW7reA!3025.entry
