Misguided as I sometimes feel

I mean no harm to any soul. I mean only

To send good wishes, to stray only where my heart leads me,

Then to wend my way back to where home is.

If I should appear upon your step, bearing gifts in my two hands

Know that I do so because you called me forth

To tell you of your forgotten stories, your loves and losses,

And tales of beginnings with no endings.

If you usher me away, I will have said my piece,

Played my part like a brief whisper in your ear,

And a stirring within your heart, the murmur of a fleeting memory.

I have already known you too long to not know you as friend.

My love to you all

  1. Now that is so beautifully written Ish. It touches the heart and soul and poetry like this is certainly a gift that no one can turn away. Thanks for sharing hon. πŸ˜€ *hugs*


        1. Like I was just saying to Sonel, animals and small children are the same, they both make you get up and do things at ridiculous times of the day!
          All I know is you were still all snug in your bed when I was up this morning. Is it getting any colder where you are? It’s quite hot where I am.


                1. You’re a hard man, personally I don’t like having cold feet. I will hold out as long as possible with wearing flip-flops, but there comes a point where blue feet stops being attractive :/
