Poem in Response

Having read “A Qualquer Altura” (Portuguese, meaning Anytime) by Carla Milho, a gifted writer, truly beautiful woman and dear friend – wherein she speaks of dreams, love and courage – I was inspired to write this poem in response…

She puts the poem in my pen
And so, I’m at it again
Sending song
through my words
to her heart

I hope one day she will find
That we are two of a kind
Hear my call
Share her love
Play a part

    1. You’re most welcome, sweet Carla. Since the time we met, your magic has warmed my heart and the vision of your deep beauty has graced my dreams.

      I find happiness in knowing you
      And the joy you bring to all you do
      Just to see your smile brightens my day
      If it were your wish, with you I’d stay
