"Writing doesn’t mean deciding to sit still all of your life and think. Ideas come from living and experiencing life, and then stepping back to think." -Shayla


Your laughter is like music to my ears,
Your smile is like the golden sun mid-day.
If you are happy, I will have no tears.
Your joy, it makes me glad in ev’ry way.
When I’m with you, my heart is filled with joy.
The cold, deep darkness of my heart is lost.
Anyone who hurts you I would destroy,
Trouble to help you, I would pay that cost.
A bad day where ev’rything is all wrong,
When it feels and seems like I have no hope,
You give me the courage to remain strong.
It’s amazing how you help me to cope.
If you went away, you need to know this,
Thanks for being great, it’s you I will miss.


The author's comments:
In class we were learning about Romeo and Juliet, and Shakespeare wrote many sonnets. Writing this sonnet was quite different from my other poems, because sonnets have the rule of 10 syllables per line, a rhyming scheme. Still, I really like this poem.

Great! This is a great addition to Romeo and Juliet. Although, I do think you said "joy" once too many, and it is starting to sound a bit repetetive. Aside from that, you did a fanatstic job. Please read, rate, and comment on my poems! Thanks!

I like this poem.  Makes me think about my mother.  I wonder who you are talking about. Once again, good job!
