This One is for YOU

This poem is
For you
Yes you
The one reading aloud
Or in your head
It doesn’t really matter
Just so long
As you’re awake
I hope you know
How much you mean
To someone who loves
You like everything
That is real
Like rain
And skyline
And heartbeat
I hope you see
All the things
That mean the most
To you
Like mountains
And planets
And love
I hope you feel
The feelings you’ve
Heard about
Read about
And wondered about
Like jealousy
And pride
And sorrow
Those weren’t the ones you imagined
I would hope you would feel
But they are real
And therefore, you should feel them
I hope you say
The words that your mouth loves
Like particular
And scrumptious
And all things true
I hope you read
Books upon books
Stories upon stories
Sonnets upon sonnets
Plays upon plays
Ballads upon ballads
Poems upon poems
But remember that this
Particular one
Is for you

Very kind. Nicely written as well. Its always nice to have a friendly message in something you read. Love the last few lines. "Read books upon books"...sounds good to me!

Wow. When I first looked at this I was skeptical... But wow. You've certainly set me straight. Not only is a remarkably well written piece but, it makes one feel good about herself. I love it. Thank you, and keep writing.
God bless,
