It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.


Have you ever looked down on a barren land
Searching for the brushstrokes of an unknown hand?

Staring into a sky of robin egg blue
Tracing hairline cracks signaling life anew

Lifting up wings promising the gift of flight
To soar up to the stars twinkling in the night

Diving to the depths past the ships in the sea
Rising with the waves yearning to be free

Flowing with the ink across a blank, white sheet
Staining graceful fingertips, smooth and neat

Framing slender arms in the light of the moon
A delicate dancer twirling to a soft, light tune

Gazing at still water in the quest for grace
The answer is written there, in the reflected face

You don't have to look far for grace and beauty, there's some inside each of us.

You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.

Missed you too! :)

Still shocked by Raven's absence but other than that, I'm great. :)

Hope I do too. :)

I'm doing amazing right now actually, and yeah, this is a bit better than my first poem hehe...  You haven't been on in a while, we've missed you.  Thank you by the way.  So Raven's gone, but he does come back every once in a while.  Hopefully you'll catch him :)

Totally agree with stargirl! :)

You've improved so much in your poetry-you've come a long way.

This is beautiful, Liz :) The imagery reminds me of Raven, but it is wholly yours. Thanks for posting this, I am honored to be the first commentor.
