Will You Save Me?©

My Poem of the Day

(02/28/15)

on the cliff

There are steps that I must take through this dark and empty place.

I wish you wouldn’t follow.

For I’m not sure if I’ll see tomorrow.

But maybe if you can reach me before it’s too late,

I won’t have to take the journey that might call for my end.

Would you take the time to save a friend?

Or,

Would you let them go so you’re off the hook and would no longer have to bother?

This all feels so wrong.

But no one has given me any other choice.

The walls are crumbling down around me.

The pressure is overwhelming.

I turned to you, but you’re not really there.

I’m hoping and praying, you’ll make the time, this time


Dear Readers:

This poem is offered in light of a recent story about a young man taking his life

when he felt he had no one to turn to, and when he did turn to someone, they didn’t try to stop him.

I beg of anyone out there, please help that is crying out for help.

Don’t urge them to take their own life. They are crying out because they want to be saved.

No matter how bad things are, there is always something better ahead even if you can’t see it at the time.

The River©

My Poem of the Day

(02/27/15)

The river is no longer still

Its ripples lye frozen to its floor

Waiting for the months of Spring

To bring upon the Winter’s thaw

Skaters flock to glide freely upon its surface

Since swimming and boating are safely tucked away

The trees stand bare and limp from the harshness of the cold

Until Old Man winter lies on its snow frosted layers

We daydream of the moment when we’ll see each tree bloom

No matter the season the view remains just right

We take it as we see it, faults and all

The vision is one of beauty and its such a wondrous thing

Soon it will all be in the past

So we are grateful for these moments when we can appreciate the view


The Seed©

My Poem of the Day

(02/26/15)

With one thought and one caretaker

I can make changes that will make a difference

With one Idea and willing hands

We can build a better tomorrow

There are things that I’ve seen

There are things that I’ve heard

That I don’t want to witness again

It takes people who care and people who are willing

To give all that they are and all that they have

To ensure everyone’s happiness so that we can all

Live a fruitful life

Who Am I?

I am the seed of promise and hope

The seed that was planted in the deepest soil on this earth

I am nurtured by all who fight for a chance

A chance to plant their seed to help feed this hungry earth

Take care of me

And nurture me

For your rewards will be bountiful

My Poem of the Day

(02/25/15)

I stand in awe of your bountiful gift

The direction you point me in is glorious

I bask in the glory of your selfless offering

I believe in the message you send forth to me

I plan to follow your direction

I shall learn from my mistakes

And change the outcome of my future

I believe in second chances

I thank you for the one you’ve given me
